Just read through the linked post. You need to get your BIOS to boot from the CDRom drive. It may be worthwhile taking a look at your ASI V210 motherboard manual, available from ASI here.

Place the XP CDRom in your drive.

To access your BIOS setup and change your boot order:

1. Power off the machine completely.
2. Press the power button.
3. Press the DEL key on your keyboard repeatedly until you enter BIOS setup.
4. Use the arrow keys to navigate to "Advanced BIOS Features" and press the Enter key.
5. Use the arrow keys to navigate to "Boot Sequence" and press the Enter key.
6. Change the first boot device to [Floppy] if available.
7. Change the second boot device to [CDROM] if available.
8. Change the third boot device to [HDD-0].
9. Set any other boot devices available in any remaining slots and enable "Boot Other Devices".
10. Press ESC until you return to the main menu.
11. Use the arrow keys to navigate to "Save & Exit Setup" and press Enter.

The computer will reboot and will boot from the XP CDRom.

You can now boot to the Recovery Console as indicated in the other post. Let us know if you get this far.

thank you that worked, I'm able to run, BUT it is very very slow.......I ran malwarebytes and got half way through and it froze,
I ran a full system backup and got to 55minutes with 4 min. left and again freeze,

So even though I'm able to run win. now I can have a shower and still watch the welcome screen just finish.

Let's get some data on this system, please.

Manufacturer and model?

How large is the C: partition? How much free space currently on C:?

How much RAM installed?

I don't know anything about computers, my friend checked this one out as hamluis, needed some specks,,
this comp. had 40gb.hdd. 250mb.ram. and was 6yrs old,this machine was used on a school network hence why I could not get far.

I've had it for over 18 months but have only just started useing it.
We decided to get rid of it ( threw it into the dam for the fish to live in.

So thank you all for your kind help an am sorry I wasted your time.
