Does your laptop meet the min system requirments for xp?

no i m doing fresh installation, & all the system requirements are meeting for the installation, as soon as i put any bootable cd it is giving error "no emulation booting"

Your boot cd was probably written to be dependent on files already in the hard drive (emulation boot). If this is the case, you need a boot disk that does not need files on the hard drive and can execute inpdependently (no emulation booting). If this wont be possible you might want to find out what files it needs so it can work and then get those files into your hard drive. In theory this should work.

hey there
There is files on the hd that needs to be included in the installation as the previous poster was saying.
Heres a shortcut to what you can do without having to search the files:
--------------------->This implies only if you backed up your data,or the data on the hd is of no importance to you>---------------------

-Format your HD in another machine
-BOOT from a xp disk

It should work fine

cheers
