Setup cannot find a previous version of Windows installed on your computer. To continue, Setup needs to verify that you qualify to use this upgrade product.

Please insert your Windows NT 3.51 Workstation, Windows NT 4.0 Workstation, Windows 95, or Windows 98 CD into your CD-ROM drive. When the CD is in the drive, press ENTER. To quit Setup, press F3.

this is the message!!!

i dont have a windows cd!!!!!!

RE: dont know what to do!!
if the disk is still in the drive, have you tried removing it and restarting?
was put impeccably into words at DebianDay for me last Saturday, by Knut Yrvin of Trolltech - adults try something once, fail, and then are like "ffs this doesn't work". Children try, fail, and then try again, and succeed - maybe on the second, or even fifth retry. But the thing is that they keep at it and overcome the problems in the end.

What you have is a Windows XP Upgrade CD. You cannot use that disk to setup a new installation of Windows XP. You need a "real" Windows XP installation disk.
