For boot from disk first you have to set first boot device option in BIOS.
for that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot menu then set first boot device as your cd/dvd rom.
then save settings then insert recovery diks in rom then check.
Then it boot from disk if your disk and cd.dvd rom works fine.
Let me know if you need more assistance.

Factory settings without the cd rom disk

Default behavior of Windows XP is that it automatically logs in if there is only one user account in the system and is not password protected.

Here is a way to make XP automatically login to a user account.
  • Click Start, Run and type CONTROL USERPASSWORDS2
  • Uncheck Users must enter a username and password to use this computer
  • Click Apply.
  • Now, fill-up your user information and password there.
By default, it shows Administrator. You need to input your username and password.

Delete any account you don't need
