There is nothing we can do. What device is the bios set to boot from? It may be going back to the disk drive the XP disk is in.

what exact computer has this problem?

Win XP does not have drivers for most of the hardware on today's laptops. It's better to install Windows XP in a Windows 7 Virtual Box. To do that you will need the Ultimate version of Win 7.

There is a three legged stool here, please pardon the interruption.

You can have cheap and fast, but not BIG. Or you can have Big and Fast, not cheap! Or, you can have Big and Cheap, not fast! In your case, you have cheap, and fast, not big!

You cannot have it all, The stool legs have to be level!

You mos' def' won't get XP updates! I would go the 7 route! At least it won't be a bot!
