F8 key won't work. Is there another way to "accept" UELA during XP install?

By Park1214 ·
I'm trying to do re-install Windows XP from my original disk. However, when I get to the EULA and hit F8 to accept the agreement, nothing happens. I tried using another keyboard but got the same result. I also made sure Toggle and/or Sticky Keys were not on. Is there any other key combination or trick I could try? Is it possibly my install cd?

If your usb keyboard has a function key, press it then the F8 key. That has worked for me in the past.
