You may already have the answer as to why you are having the problems
installing Windows XP; however, for those looking for answers, the problem
may or may not be with the CD ROM drive or the disk. Many times files can
become corrupt in memory and write "bogus" information to the hard drive due
to bad RAM
\SOLUTION:

Look to the RAM - change-out RAM chips or try taking out all RAM and placing
in the system one at a time and try re-installing Windows. When the
installation completes, you will then isolate the bad RAM chip.
