You have to do a clean install Windows XP, you can't just roll back.

The biggest problem you might find is a lot of companies quit making drivers for XP.

do you mean it won't boot from the dvd drive? change boot sequence in bios.

I would assume it was a hardware failure before I assumed the operating system was at fault unless you have proof otherwise.

Is this an original CD, or a burned CD?

It more like the problem with the optical device (hardware) than OS.....

try cleaning the disk first..
and try verify it still in good condition using other comp....
