Did you try running the DVD from XP?

Where did you get the DVD? Did you burn it yourself?

the weird thing is that the many times when i install windows 7 the hard with the total size 74.5 was disk 0 and the other one disk 1,but now is the reverse order.

@Jonathan_King it's a simple delay,when i log on to my pc will take 2 minutes to enter windows xp,i hope you get it.

It's actually pretty simple. Find out what motherboard you have (use Speccy to find out), and go to the manufacturer's site. The BIOS is in the downloads section.

Sometimes OEMs like Dell use custom motherboards, in which case you need to go to their site and look there.
