Sounds to me like you had an ASR (Automatic System Recovery) floppy in the drive when you booted up. That's the only scenario I can envisage whereby the system will ask for a secondary installation media if it doesn't detect it in the DVD drive. A genuine Windows XP installation DVD is located on one disc.
My mother needed her pc fixed, so she took it to get it fixed. I asked her how much the computer was to be to fix it she said like 100 something dollars and the people were just going to put in a new psu. I had an extra Psu and told her I could do it for free. After I installed it and turned on the Pc it loaded fine and it came up as an installation of Xp, even though Xp was already installed and working fine before hand. I decided to let it run its coarse. I came back in like 30 minutes to check on it, and it said something like "We need Xp installation disk 2, to finish.". I don't that disk it's asking for, I wanted to cancel it and install a copy of Win7 anyways.
Is there a way to cancel the installation? Or do I have to finish it? and if so where can I find the stuff online to put on the disk to finish it?
