Default Having trouble loading XP

Hi , I am a beginner Computer Builder . And I have done quite a bit of basic repair and builds . But I ran into a problem and don't have any clue what why its happening . I am building a generic PC with a 450 Pentium 8 gig hd , 128 mg of ram . My problem is this ,on loading up XP I get the normal hit any key to boot from CD . But just before that I get a message " No Emulation System Type-(00) " Now it seems to load fine but EVERY time I get to 34% of the Windows setup it freezes . I thought it might be a bad copy of XP .So I tryed another , I get the same . Could someone give me some info on this message and maybe what I can do .

if the motherboard is an Asus, according to these guys ( http://www.mcse.ms/message188359.html ) the BIOS does not support booting from CD.

sorry can't find any more info...
