    At first insert the cd. restart pc. press "delete" key to enter bios, select cd-rom as first boot device. then setup will continue. but when the first restart occurs, u have to change first boot device to the hdd drive from bios.
    I think this was the prob, you forgot to change the boot device order.

    1) Are you installing xp on c:\ drive? have you formatted c:\ drive before you got this error?

    2) why is the date set to april 9 2009 ?

    I guess there is some problem during installation, some files are not copied, i suggest you to install XP again from the scratch.

    You can wait for other member to respond to your problem first. If nothing works then do this.

    i reset the bios, change the boot order, boot xp cd, repartition, format, setup copies files, setup reboots, system asks if i want to boot from cd...i let it go so the setup uses the flat file it copied, i then get the error loading operating system.

    tryed to install again, but it said "boot from CD-rom..." and sat there for roughly 7-8 seconds, then gave the same error message.

    seems like some of the files are not getting copied properly or they are missing, may i suggest you to try installing xp from a different disc.

    Try using another xp installation cd or try installing in another partition or remove the xp cd once the files are copied & reboot ur pc then later insert the cd when asked to during the setup

    Default Check your cmos battery

    Is your system showing the correct time?if no then it is the problem change your battery.
    als try this
    if you can get another data cable and connect the hard disk through it,it may also be the problem...
