Can not boot from Win XP Pro without an auto restart
I see you are having issue installing windows, getting an error the the Boot Manager is missing...
The windows Disc that you have is this a burnt copy? possible that the installation files on the Windows you have is incomplete.
But if I may ask before you tried installing this Windows what windows did you have on your computer?
Have you tried booting the disc directly from the CD drive instead of installing it from within windows.
Go into BIOS and change the boot configuration of you Computer make sure the the CD/DVD drive is selected as the primary boot option before the hard drive, once that is done restart your computer make sure that you Windows disc is in the cd/dvd drive, you should get a prompt on the upper left saying to boot from cd press any key - press Enter right away once you see that prompt this should boot from the disc for the installation to continue but if still it looks for the Boot Manager the copy of your installation disc maybe incomplete.
Also you can try to wipe clean you hard drive and try again again with the installation.
