It's been a while but I had a similar problem with a work computer. Would
not boot WinXP disk with Vista installed.
If you've given up on Vista use the Vista DVD to delete the Vista partition.
Boot to Vista DVD and skip the enter code page and you will come to a page
with "disk utilities" or some similar verbiage. You can delete the Vista
partition from there. After you do that quit. You should then be able to
boot to the WinXP CD. Worked for me.
