It may be possible to boot from a USB flash drive if the computer supports it. You can create an iso from the install disk using Imgburn then use Rufus to create the bootable USB flash drive. Backup any data on your flash drive as it will be erased.
Edit: I recommend a read speed of no faster than 4X when creating the iso.

If it's a valid XP install CD and it doesn't spin up at boot...I would clean the disk with water and a soft/cotton cloth, drying it in straight lines (no circular motions).
If the disk is a repair/restore disk of any sort...then I might expect the non-reaction described.

What is the make and model of the computer. In BIOS does it let you set USB flash or key as first boot device? If USB is set as first boot device then try the following.
Boot the XP USB disk.
Edit: I forgot to mention that all steps in Partition Wizard are virtual and do not complete until Apply is clicked.

At boot tap Esc or F10 and see if it brings up a boot menu. I don't thin slot 0140 is a USB port. The disk should boot from either the CD or DVD drive.I did a search of iba 4.1.08 and didn't find anything.
Edit: It is not USB.

If the install CD is bootable the DVD drive should be able to boot it unless this is a very old DVD drive then I wouldn't know. See my post #2. You can create a bootable iso using Imgburn then burn the iso to DVD.

How did you burn the iso of Partition Wizard? Right click > Burn Disk Image? The disk has numerous files on it rather than one file with an iso extension, correct?
If you cannot boot a CD, DVD, or USB then I am out of ideas on this one, sorry?
