I have a little issue with an HP xw8400 workstation. I used the restore cd's that ware delivered with the computer.It all copied all the data on the HDD-drive as soon as it finished it asked me to remove the recovery cd.After that the computer restarts and begins windows setup/installation. As soon as the first GUI screen appears the computer restarts thus creating a little restart loop, it has done this continually for almost 2 hours.
THX in advance for your help !

I recently bought two xw8400 with the OEM key codes provided (windows xp pro 64bit) , but with no xp pro software installed. Can you give me specific directions on how to perform a boot and startup? What disc will I need to do this? Where can I get them? I bought my machines '2nd hand' and they didn't come with discs.
Also, where would you get a copy of the OS system software for win xp pro 64bit OEM version that would work on this machine, if you already had a valid product key code but, no software?
I'd love to get past this situation, and get my machines up and running. Thanks.
