Did you check if your computer is capable of running Windows 8 comfortably? Have you followed the upgrade procedure? 2 GB memory seems rather too little. What was the original Windows version? XP, Vista, Windows 7. Was the original OS 32 bits or 64 bits?
If you have problems slipstreaming you can during the first part of the XP install by pressing the F6 key to install a 3rd party driver for the hard disk. Windows will prompt you to press F6 so be ready.
the cd you are using is not original thats the main problem. if you can get an original cd fine other than that look for a vistacd and use insteed because your machine was designed for vista thanks. rate this solution if it works

you have to use a standard windows start up disk with cd rom support like win 98 works well so the computer will recognize a older version then insert it and boot the computer with the operating system that u want to install but be advised if you have a warranty on the machine you will void the waranty i found out the hard way i had xp on my toshiba laptop and i put windows me on it couple of months later i had a cd rom issue and sent it to the manufacture and found out that the waranty was voided because i put a different operating system on the machine
