It sounds like it's looking for the XP disc all the time. Have you tried looking at the CD from Start\Run Browse the cd

Or right click on Start go Explore and click on the drive in Explorer and look for setup file

I can see the contents of the cd, but when i try to run setup i get the 'not a valid win32 application' error, i get the same when i try to run any executable off the drive, im wondering now if i have a duff drive, but if it is how is it installing windows ? this ones really bugging me now, anymore ideas ?

No it's some thing to do with what XP as done it's not your CD drive or XP would not be recognised

ive installed a cdrom temporarily, and that is working, so i may have a go trying it as the slave, if it still doesnt work ill set it up on my internet connection and see if windows update sorts it.

Have a look in Device Manager at the CDRW and make sure DMA is disabled NO TICK IN THE BOX
