After you click accept does the light on the CD rom start flickering again or does it stay off? There is a possiblity that the F8 key on your keyboard doesn't work. Never seen a computer hang on that screen before. Maybe try another keyboard. If the CD rom does flicker after hitting F8 and looks like it's trying to access the cdrom then the cd may be damaged or dirty and it can't read from the cdrom to go on with the installation. In fixing thousands of computers I've never seen one hang at the Licensing agreement or I was asleep with it did so.

    Computer wont bootup windows xp error loading operating system drive 1 not found please help me


    1.Restart your computer. Immediately after the screen goes blank for the first time, press the F8 key repeatedly. The Windows Advanced Options menu appears. If the menu does not appear, restart your computer and try again. Use the cursor keys on your keyboard (your mouse will not work) to select Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start.

    .
    If you recently installed new hardware, shut down your computer and disconnect the hardware. Then, restart Windows XP and troubleshoot your hardware to get it working properly.
    3.
    Restart your computer and press F8 again. This time, choose Safe Mode and press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start in Safe Mode, which does not automatically start programs and hardware, and displays very primitive graphics. If Windows XP starts successfully in Safe Mode, you can remove any programs or updates you have recently installed. Then, restart your computer normally.

    Performing a repair installation of Windows XP can fix many serious startup problems. While you should not lose any of your important documents, you might lose settings, and you will need to reinstall many updates.
    Before performing a repair installation of Windows XP, you should have both your Windows XP CD and your product key available.
    To perform a repair installation of Windows XP
    1.
    Insert your Windows XP CD into your computer.
    2.
    Restart your computer. If prompted, press a key to start from the CD-ROM.
    When the Welcome to Setup page appears, press ENTER on your keyboard.
    On the Windows XP Licensing Agreement page, read the licensing agreement. Press the PAGE DOWN key to scroll to the bottom of the agreement. Then, press F8.
    When prompted, press R to have Windows XP attempt to repair Windows by reinstalling important Windows components.
    The repair and reinstallation process might take more than an hour. Eventually, Setup prompts you to answer questions just as if you were installing Windows XP for the first time. For detailed instructions, read Install Windows XP.
