Question about Packard Bell Computers & Internet
Even though you have set the computer to boot from the DVD first, there is usually a special function key you can press to ensure you boot from it.
Just when you get the error will determine what the problem may be. When you first start, you should get the prompt "press any key to boot from the CD (DVD). If you don't get that prompt, then your DVD may be going bad on you.
You say you are loading a reboot DVD. I have no idea what that is, but XP was distributed on a CD for the most part. Be sure you are trying to boot from the original Windows XP CD or a system restore CD.
If you are allowing the computer to boot to Linux first, then you're in for trouble. That won't work.
