    What are you trying to boot on ? Your Windows XP install CD ?

    ps. that video card is a bit underpowered compared to the rest of the system (unless you don't plan on gaming).

    Well if you haven't installed anything (Windows presumably) it's only normal that you get this message. Purchase a Windows XP CD + license, boot on it & install it on the hard drive.
