    Installing xp home with the upgrade disk should not cause this problem. You will however require a previous version of windows.

    Try checking your cd in another machine and see if it is recognized there.

    Perhaps Koehler09 is referring to the disc itself being an upgrade, from Windows 2000 to XP?

    If that is the case it will be necessary to get a complete install Windows XP disc.
