What CD are you using?

Is this a clean install or are you installing over another copy or OS?

Installing other than on a formatted drive can cause this problem.

Are you entering the number correctly?

If it is a slipstreamed copy it is likely the copy is corrupt - if a fake XP CD then the same may be true.

Did you boot from the xp home disc and then do a full format (not the quick) or was the Harddrive formatted in some other way?

hi lotvic

the hard drive was formatted through setup and was the long format thanks Chippy

I can only think that your DVD's are scratched (both of them..?) so I would try to borrow one to use with your product key. It's the product key that counts for the legal (genuine) part - not the actual DVD (which can be copied quite freely)

Or maybe the HDDrive has a fault, have you another you could try?

Out of interest what make and model of pc is it?
