:thumbsup: well i tried posting this on different sites and trying to find the solution to my \windows\system32\config\system problem. so i hit any key and the disc boots up. then i hit enter to install windows xp. then f8 to agree. then it tells me to select but the problem is there is nothing to select since its says "unknown disc <there is no disc in the drive> so i hit enter anyways and get the setupdd.sys page_fault_in_nonpaged_area. so i restart and this time i hit r at the windows option screen and brings me to the recovery counsel where you type dir, map, attrib, etc. so i used the microsoft website guide to type md tmp. it gives me access denied so i wont be able to continue with the other steps. i type discpart and it shows up similar to the "unknown disc <there is no disc in the drive> and i type fixboot and it wont work. is this a hardware problem and if i cant do this myself who should i take it too since the computer was bought from a buddy. it worked when i first started and it shows the windows menu where you can see your computer and internet explore, but not with me. plz help me

My suggestions:

Check if your Windows CD is scratched/damaged.
Run a lens cleaning CD on your CD-ROM drive.
Borrow another CD-ROM to try the install.

Let us know how you go.

Soltek QBIC, Pentium 4 3.0GHz, 512MB RAM, 200GB SATA HDD, ATI Radeon 9600XT 256MB, Netgear 54Mb/s WAP, ridiculously expensive Satellite Broadband
Windows XP Home SP2, Trend Micro Internet Security, Firefox, Thunderbird, AdAwareSE, Spybot S&D, SpywareBlaster, A-squared Free, Ewido Security Suite.
