I'm trying to reinstall Windows XP to clean up my system because too much of my C drive is used and not enough free space. It will not boot to the disc. I've tried the recovery discs from manufacturer and a MS XP disc home edition. The system goes straight to the desktop and acts like a disc is not in the drive. I've also tried the install by accessing the disc through my computer and clicking on install, and it says the OS loaded is newer than the one on the disc, so it will not auto install. I've checked the bios and the cd drive is the first boot order, removable devices second, and hard drive is third. I've tried a boot disc in the floppy and it states invalid disc. Ugh! Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks.
