    I have the same issue I reformatted the drive in another system and tried installing Win XP, but it will not boot from the CD, I'm thinking its in need of the Sony addition of Win XP that came with the system which I don't have a copy of.

Is the Drive reading any CD/Dvd during windows.

Please check the BIOS priority, if the HDD is set for first boot.

Let me know if you need further assistance. Also clarify the problem in detail.

    Note To boot from your Windows XP CD, the BIOS settings on your computer must be configured to do this.
  3. When you see the "Press any key to boot from CD" message, press any key to start the computer from the Windows XP CD.
  4. At the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to start Windows XP Setup.
  5. Read the Microsoft Software License Terms, and then press F8.

Hello there, I can't reinstall Windows XP. When loading the reboot DVD, my both computers mention they can't find the device. Which device they can't find is not clear. Both computers are set up to...


Even though you have set the computer to boot from the DVD first, there is usually a special function key you can press to ensure you boot from it.
Just when you get the error will determine what the problem may be. When you first start, you should get the prompt "press any key to boot from the CD (DVD). If you don't get that prompt, then your DVD may be going bad on you.
You say you are loading a reboot DVD. I have no idea what that is, but XP was distributed on a CD for the most part. Be sure you are trying to boot from the original Windows XP CD or a system restore CD.
If you are allowing the computer to boot to Linux first, then you're in for trouble. That won't work.

How to Fix a Code 10 Error
A Code 10 error is due to:
  • Missing device driver
  • Malfunctioning device driver
  • Incomplete device driver files
If the device due to which the error has occurred contains the value FailReasonString in its hardware key.

then this string is displayed as an error message. Otherwise, the device displays the following error message:
This device is either not present, not working properly, or does not have all the drivers installed. (Code 10)

Most of the time, you can resolve this error by updating the device driver for the faulty device. To update the driver, select the System option from the Control Panel. In the System Properties dialog box, select the Hardware tab, and then select the Device Manager button. Scroll through the Device Manager window and identify the faulty hardware device. Right-click on this device and then select the Update Driver command. Next, follow the screen instructions to update the driver of the selected device.
