Installing XP is almost automatic. After you select the drive which is always C: drive, the only time it will stop is when it ask you for your XP license. It will continue to see the cd without no issues.
Your license shpuld be on the back or side of your PC Or on the folder that the XP cd came in.

Here is a site which goes through the XP install step by step, you may not need to do the first section , since you already can boot from the cd :

copy and paste the link into your browser.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Is there any recoverable data left on the printer memory that I should be aware of when I dispose of my printer


If you are that worried, permenantly delete the printer .. with a hammer.
If you have onboard memory on the printer, it is quite easy to recover data from it, even if you where able to reformat it.
Even hard drives that have been formatted can get the data recovered quite easily

How can i install my pixma canon printer without cd. after removing virus and repormat


Canon's website will have the whole package for download, likely with a newer driver than the one you lost in the reformat. They will ask you several questions so the correct driver is made available.

Lost 'Destinations.msi'


Since you have the recovery disks you may reformat the hard drive and reinstall windows Xp.  You can reformat the hard drive with some free software that can usually download from the manufactor of you hard drive. Yuor hard drive is listed under   MY computer(right click) - properties-hardware . The other option is to go to the MSI website and see if they have special software for *********** board for VISTA for the:" Destinations.msi"

Cannot retrieve application list


My updates to the printer automatically downloading to a C:// drive for my hard drive which was labled H:// after the format. I had to reformat the computer partitions after backing up my hard drive to disk and relabeling the Hard drive back to C:// once the updates were installed to the correct drive the scanner downloaded the needed updates and began working. if anyone needs to know how to reset your partitions in the hard drive, all you do is after inserting your boot/install windows disk at the time of asking were to install windows a setup window will appear on the screan. at that time you may install another version of windows or delete the partition by pushing F2 to format, or in any case at the bottom will lable correct button to push to format the desired partitions. REMEMBER ONCE DOING THIS ALL YOUR INFORMATION ON THE COMPUTER WILL BE DELETED! So I strongly urge you do back up all information. THIS INCLUDES ALL OF YOUR DRIVERS! if you do not back up your drivers you will loose essential data to run your computer again including your network controller adapter<-- this is needed to get online it is basically your ethernet/ internet port which you may want especially to download the new drivers to other programs Video drivers etc. The Whole process is a couple of hours to complete but if you can take the risk in trying this you'll save yourself time and money getting ripped off to have someone else do it. Where by the way charges are incured with system diagnostic runs to make sure places of computer programming and system tech supports are covered if anything is to go wrong with the computer. then youll laugh when you see the bill after not having a computer for a week!

I reformatted my hard drive now it doesnt recognise my version of windows XP which in turn stops me downloading updates and it is not performing the same as when I bought it new.


If you have reformatted your drive and re-installed XP you will have to re-activate XP before you can do anything useful. Have you done this?
