I put a larger hard drive in and removed the small

I put a larger hard drive in my tower and removed the smaller ones, how do I put XP on it, all I have put on so far is ms-dos version 6.22.
What can I do next do you think ?

Hi, I have xp pro, full version. If I put it in the drives noting happens though ?

I think I need full help, I can get into the bios by hitting delete and I guess change stuff there ?

Its a phoenixBIOS setup utility bios, It says on the BOOT part that the first boot device is atapi cd-rom drive, third boot is hard drive

I have a dvd rom and cd-rom in the pc also, the light come on but I'm not sure they are working ?

All I'm getting is the C:\> prompt when i reboot with disk in or out ?

That doesn't work either, jst put windows 98 disk in nd booted, that works, but xp won't, what's this all about ?

I've managed to get windows 98 in, but I really want to put the xp in. when I now go to c: properties it says the drive is 1.99gb, but on the label on the drive it says its 20 gb.

I've managed to start loading xp now, maybe it was just an upgrade.
Still odd how the pc thinks it's only 1.99gb though ?
