4) Set the BOOT to your Cd-ROM drive that has ur XP cd in it.
5) Exit and Save Settings(this shud automatically reboot ur PC.
6)Follow the Instructions on the WIndows XP Screen
when u reach the below picture,it will show your previous window ME which is FAT32 on the screen. From here, u should delete all the previous partition n make a new 1. if your hardisk big enough such as more than 40GB, i suggest to make 2 patition. first partition u allocate 5GB to install window xp(c drive) while u put the rest for the second partition (d drive). D drive is for u to put all the program files n important data so that next time u window unstable n u want to reformat again, u just need to reformat drive c only.Ok, back to the topic, after u set the partition, it will ask you to reformat your drive, is better for you to choose full/clean format using NTFS, not quick format.
after format the machine will automatic reboot n it will enter the screen below. it will aumatically install the window for u. just follow the instruction of the screen.
after u reach the screen below thats mean u already success install window. but do not forget to change back your boot sequence to hardisk on next reboot.
