    it needs to be 64 bit to run the 64 bit....you cant just be on 32 bit and stick in a 64 bit edition and upgrade like that.You need a 64 bit processor.

    when you put your XP disc in, does it show up in your Computer? If so you can start from that or go to your Run command and start it there....try those...

    you can try this method.you should have a folder called sources open it and you should see setup.exe.doing this way should be able to run and allow you to even format your entire pc and install from scratch.

    usually you turn off your psp then hold or press f8 a few times and some options will come up.then you hit boot in safe mode option

    is this a copied disc or a real authentic disc? cause most windows setup discs have a source folder.it tells the disc what to run
