    I have been unable to Reformat /perform a clean reinstall on my
    computer w/my Windows Home Xp (sp 2) installation disk .I have a
    Monarch furia custom desktop with an Asus A8N-E Motherboard,Athlon
    64/fx,socket 939,N force4,ATX,4GB DDR,2000Mhz FSB.I cannot reach
    Monarch for help since I believe they are no longer in business.I think
    my Bios is a V6.00pg ACPI Phoenix Award Bios (Phoenix technologies )Bios
    Revision 1008 (1984-2005)I only have one SATA drive(A150352 WD caviar
    8mb cache 720 rpm.Regardless of which boot order I assign the computer
    either shows a disk boot failure or else just simply loads from my hard
    drive ,therby loading the existing OS .Please Help .I don't believe
    there is anything wrong with the installation disk.I tried an earlier OS
    installation disk with no success( I was sent to me by Monarch along
    with a Product Key.)
    Thank you so much for reading this .I am fairly sure the media(installation disc is in good condition as it started to load through my Windows desktop (I would prefer though a totally clean install on a new partition)
