Other installation discs, all xp. Some official, some I've written.

That would seem reasonable, given that you have an EFI BIOS (I assume that you have from the image you posted). This did not exist when XP was released, so its installation routine has no idea what to do with it.

Do you get this message just with XP install discs or with others as well?

Others. I've tried one in another PC and it starts fine, but not in this one.
