I have a 40gb hd formatted to NTFS not fat32 Im trying to install win xp home on from win xp home cd (not a popy ) original cd full version.
it gets as far as copying all the files from cd then when reboot I get the message insert system disc ? press enter when I reboot its just loading system files agian where am I going wrong Its just like going around in circles it wont boot to win set up any ideas does the hd have to be set to master for it to work as at the moment its set to slave does it matter. slave or mater
cd set to 1st boot in bios does the copy files to hd then get the format and partition drive ok then reboot when reboot get the error message install system disc or press enter it wont boot to win set up
