First off why are you trying to install Windows XP with 96MB Ram when Windows XP needs atleast 216MB To run PROPERLY..



1)Computer is booting from a non-bootable source.
2)Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS.
3)Corrupt NTLDR and/or NTDETECT.COM file.
4)Misconfiguration with the boot.ini file.
5)Attempting to upgrade from a Windows 95, 98, or ME computer

6)that is using FAT32.
7)New hard disk drive being added.
8)Corrupt boot sector / master boot record.
9)Seriously corrupted version of Windows 2000 or Windows XP.
10)Loose or Faulty IDE/EIDE hard disk drive cable.

i do not know anything about the picture that you are not getting
