    Ok, lets see if I understand correctly, you installed XP, then it crashed upon reboot? What do you mean by crash? Did it freeze and refuse to respond? Was it a BSOD?
    I also assume that you are refering to entering your product key when you say it asks for a code.

    Why not just reformat and start again? You haven't gotten that far yet, and it won't hurt anything.
