Reload xp on laptop

\015 I have a toshiba Satellite 4600 and I formated the harddrive. I tried to reboot it with a Windows XP Cd Rom and it did not work. So i tried a windows 98 SE floppy disc and it booted up to A drive but now wont read the Cd Rom. Can you help me get my laptop going or tell me how.?\015

Answers :

Bpaul76,
And, a good evening to you!
First thing to do is to go into safe start up and make sure that you change drive priorities to show the cd ROM is assigned the first device to read from. All should be well, from that point on.
