This may be an indication that the CDROM has a fault, or the CD media.  Have you tried a different disc, or tried making a copy of that disc and running from the copy?

Sounds like the cd drive has failed . . you can go into BIOS and disable it to see if it will boot without it.

what test was it running, the dell diags will try to burn to a cdrw(preformatted0 if you have a cdrw drive, and if a balnk disb isnt in there you will get a failure message like the one your getting. When you boot to a cd what point does it stop? becaus eit not going to stop at a logon screen there is not logon screen when booting to a cd. If its not booting to the cd then it will try to boot to the hdd. To test just the read portion of the cdrom boot back into the diagnostics and choose custom test, then click the plus next to the cdrom and there should be an option for a read test, make sure then is a known good cd with data in the drive then double click the reasd test and this will run the test if you still get this error running a read test the drive is most likly bad and will need to be replaced.

It can also be a bad XP CD.  Make a copy of it and try the copy first -- better still, try a new XP CD.  If you get the message on 2+ CDs, then you can assume the CD drive is failing.

if you can open the laptop, try removing /reseating the cd drive.
You can then try to boot without cd too
