It sounds like you are trying to load xp from within windows 7. You can't do this.

You need to put your cd in.

Restart your computer and tap the boot menu key ( some machines are F12 some are F9, it varies. ) and select boot from cd. Or you can go in the BIOS and change the boot order.

Once it boots, from the cd , you will need to "press any key' to continue.

Then you just follow the instructions.

Hope this helps. If I missed something or you are unsure about something please don't hesitate to post back

a blue screen that doesn't say anything? I have never seen that. There is usually an error of some sort. And often times that error will help troubleshoot the issue.

What is the error on the bluescreen. That's what we need to know..

You can get a formatting tool from Ultimate Boot CD or something...

Download Darik's Boot and Nuke from SourceForge.net

You can download the zip file and burn the ISO and run the software..

Windows 7 x64 finally!
 
 

You should try Gparted to format the HD, then install XP from scratch: GParted -- Welcome
