Howdy,

What discs have you tried and what has happened that you need to boot from a disc?

Understood....

but you haven't said what is the problem that you need to boot from a disc?

How old is the PC and is it the same Hard drive?

How long have you waited with the blue screen up as sometimes it can take awhile?

Is the Windows XP CD the original one?

Have you tried the discs on another PC as a test.
