Hi,
Welcome to Just Answer ,My name isXXXXX will try to help you..

Sorry for the delayed reply.First of all you cannot install OS from other disc in a branded PC. because the drivers are inbuilt in the recovery disc. But, the problem you are describing is generally caused due to defective hard drive.Please try to reinstall windows once again and check the issue. If the problem persist, then you have to replace the hard drive. One more thing, if you want to order the recovery disc from emachine, then you can do from the link below. They may take the shipping cost from you and send the disc.

MY FIRST TWO REPLY ?S AREN'T ENOUGH DID YOU EVEN GET THEM?
Expert:  Sowrav D. replied 2 years ago.
As you have relisted the question without any reason, I didn't got your replies. Now, I think you said that, you have installed Windows XP as your recovery CDs are cracked, then when I told you to reinstall XP, why are you saying, that I did not told you the steps to do it, because if you have installed Windows XP from other disc, then you should know the way to reinstall it. Please read my replies carefully, because I told you that, if you are unable to reinstall Windows XP, then your Hard drive is defective. As I cannot see your PC, I cannot tell you anything on assumption, so I told you to reinstall windows once more. Hope you will understand my limitations.
