Windows XP on a sata drive will not be found when I run from XP CD

I have a Dell tower with a STA drive running windows XP. I want to wipe windows and reinstall so I put the Windows XP CD in and run from CD. When it searches from previous version of Windows is comes up with nothing,

If I let the computer boot up normal I get right into Windows XP.

I just tried using a Dell CD to reinstall and it just came up. NO idea why.
