Help with xr reinstall

\015 Thanks again \302\240i will be out sun. am \302\240for awhile to do some christmas shopping because i have put it off for 5 days while i fought with my computer. \302\240i hope we can catch each other some point today. \302\240like i said earler. \302\240i did what you suggested and it still wouln't reboot. \302\240kept saying to hit f1 to retry or f2 to go to system setup??? \302\240my knowledge base of this is very low. \302\240if i could just get it to accept the reboot i could probably take care of it. \302\240again i had to turn off all items in boot order except the cd drive. \302\240if i made cd #1, i was not able to # the other drive. \302\240thanks again\015
