Default Stuck in a Loop while installing XP

I am installing my XP (originally Vista) on my laptop. I boot with the CD and it went into the blue screen, and format my C drive and copied the files. Everything looked fine until it rebooted after copying files, it just went back to starting point asking me to agree license, format, etc. Basically, I am stuck in a loop and can't get out. I tried format and copied the files again but still the same thing. Now I can't even boot with another XP CD cuz it says data error and can't boot from HD either as it's already formatted.

Any idea how to solve this? Thanks alot
