FATAL ERROR MESSAGE/DELL OPTIPLEX GX150 DESKTOP/WINDOWS XP PRO

\015 I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO RE-INSTALL WINDOWS XP PROFESSIONAL SP2 TO MY DELL OPTIPLEX 150. WINDOWS BOOT OKAY, I SEE THE WINDOWS XP SCREEN, THEN IT AUTOMATICALLY GOES, SET UP IS STARTED. THEN I GET THE XP INSTALL SCREEN SAYING I HAVE 39 MINUTES TO UNTIL ALL FILES ARE INSTALLED. THEN I GET A SCREEN THAT ASK FOR XP CD-ROM. WHEN I INSERT THE DISK THATS WHEN I GET THE FATAL ERROR WITH SET UP MISSING A SET UP FILE ON C DRIVE. CAN YOU HELP.\015

Answers :

It sounds like the system is not booting from the CD-ROM and therefore is repeatedly trying to use the same set of files it has already copied to the harddrive. Check the boot sequence in the BIOS and verify that it will boot from the CD-ROM before the harddrive. You'll know you have it right when you see the message "Press any key to boot from CD..." (this message appears only if there is an active partition on the harddrive)
\015\012
\015\012Note: If the CD-ROM is after the harddrive in the boot sequence, and the harddrive is blank or does not have an active partition, it will then boot from the CD, which is probably what happened the first time)

I just reinstalled XP Pro SP3 on a Dell OptiPlex GX270 after the hard drive failed. I had ane updated SP3 disc from a newer Dell unit, & it worked fine. However, when I reboot, it requires the CD in the drive to see it & go on & boot up. If I remove the CD & bootup as usual, it hangs at F1 / F2 screen & will not go further without it, it just loops to the same screen. Any ideas here? I have done this before, but this is the first time a PC required a Dell OEM Disc in the drive to boot up normall
