Question about HP Pavilion a1520n PC Desktop
It sounds a little strange because it should do as the disk tells it.
Check the BIOS is set for DVD/CD Rom drive as 1st boot device.
Insert System disk into drive. Re boot the computer and follow the on screen prompts.
Vista will have no problems because it will check the OS that is installed, notice the date stamp is older than Vista and install a new OS on the drive. XP however may have a problem. If you have SP2 or SP3 installed, your XP system disk is older and will not be allowed to load without prompting.
Hope that helps.
