The only thing I can think then is that the disc isn't a full version of Windows XP because I can hear the disc spinning in the CD Rom whenever the computer boots up and I still get the error message.
The disc reads "Operating System-Already installed on your computer. Reinstallation DVD Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition with Update Rollup 2". And then there's a line that says "The software is already installed on your computer. Only use this DVD to reinstall the operating system on a Dell PC". So, to me, it certainly sounds like it's a full version of Windows XP and not just a recovery CD.
Any thoughts or suggestions on what I can do?
Thanks for all your help.
