I have posted this at least 3 times before, and not certain it will help, but try taking out your cmos battery in the defunct computer and trying again. Also, with XP, there's no need to go through all the formatting stuff. As long as your computer can access and read the CD, then the program should do it on it's own. You can format via the install CD when it prompts for it, if needed.
