Can you reboot and get into windows or is now corrupt?
What do you mean by 'uninstalled XP'??
You cant uninstall it unless you format the drive, in which case the recovery discs are now probably useless as they rely on a folder on the HDD called i386.
Recovery discs normally dont have the OS on them, they rely on the I386 folder to gather info about the computer and then restores it to the state when it was new.
If you can acess the system, reboot and go into the bios and change the boot sequence to CD, then insert the first recovery disc. then save the settings and the computer will reboot and start the recovery process again, this should clear up the error.
If it does not it will be because the i386 folder is missing in which case you can either explore the recovery discs for it or you will have to buy a copy of Windows XP.

You have a complicated issue that is very difficult to repair using this one way conversation method. I must, however, compliment the detail of your description.
From what I can see, you have a problem with one of two, or possibly two of two things. One message says your network card is not functioning properly, the other says your hard drive is not functioning properly.
Either of these issues may be either the device which has failed or the software which controls it has failed.
If you have access to another machine, you may be able to remove the hard drive and test it (this would be my first choice, since a recovery disk should still work even if the Network card does not).
By testing the harddrive, you can be sure it is working properly. If it is working properly, the next test would be on the memory. Believe it or not, memory often will stop a system from reading data off the DVD drive during recovery or installation of the operating system.
This one would be much easier for me to help you diagnose if I had it in my possession, and I'm certain most techs will tell you the same thing.
Additionally, the recovery disk may actually be bad, and this can be investigated with a visual inspection. Look for scratches and fingerprints on the disk.
And often, Windows Vista does not install unless the BIOS is set to the INSTALL OS mode. Different machines do this differently; and again, if you had another machine that was working, it would help.
