Also you can force the cd drive to read the windows disk.Go into bios and disable your hard drive and then boot up.It should read off the cd drive now.Then when windows starts to reboot go back into BIOS and reenable the hard drive. Usually I have to do this with older BIOS's but I've had to do it on some newer ones also.

XP doesn't have drivers for everything, You have to install the drivers that came with your motherboard and or any add on devices you have added.
