What happened to your "friends" Win XP disk, why can't you use that? Someone must have used it before if it had XP on it...

Your neighbours XP cd is not of any use to you., as you will doing a illegal install with it.

Get your friend to purchase a legal operating system to install, instead of pirated copies.

If it is an actuall xp installation disc from dell....why can you not boot with it and go into the repair console and repair it! Every Dell XP disc I have ever seen are stamped copies of the MS installation disc with Dell logo information on it!

OK so you have to have a Win 98 disk for this computer, that Dell said should have Win 95 on it. Somehow you have dicked around with a Win XP install on it, hence the blue screen and error messages. Still sounds sus to me.

Go and purchase a Win 98 cd...
