Default Re: Will not boot

I have one and it would let you know if the install media is defective or not.

Download the Ubuntu linux install CD. If it installs and runs then I would say your XP disk is bad. You can always wipe the drive again after getting a good XP install disk.

You can burn the iso with Imgburn. Download the 32bit version. Good Luck.

Edit: but with all the time being spent on this, If it is an important computer, it may be better to purchase a new computer if that is feasible.
