It could be that the cd drive is faulty, the other drive you have tried must be compatable with your laptop or it will not work correctly.

And no as far as i know you cant get another comp to repair XP from another comp, just the same as you cant install XP on one comp and put it in another comp and expect it to work.

The BIOS will show the drive as "CD ROM" if its not being shown the BIOS is not detecting the drive, check that its seated correctly into the comp and that none of the pins are bent etc.

If all OK there and the BIOS is not showing it it could well be faulty.

The last and I mean ”last” solution, if another doesn't work.
Put the HDD from laptop into a functional PC (there is an adapter HDD 2.5” to 3.5”, and is very cheap). After that, copy on the laptop HDD a Windows XP home kit. Install from there. I made this with my both laptops, several times.
