I had a boot disk and used it to boot up with cd-rom available. when I put in the windows xp pro cd nothing happens.
That bootdisk only works if you install Win 98 or WinME. Put your Win XP CD and change boot order to boot from CD-ROM first.
If you can't, you can download WinXP setup disks from <b><A HREF="http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=55820edb-5039-4955-bcb7-4fed408ea73f&DisplayLang=en" target="_new"><font color=blue>Microsoft</A></b></font color=blue> to make floppy bootdisk (4 disks).
