I have been given a HP Compaq DC7100 with the SFF case. This PC is fitted with a SATA hard disk drive. The previous owner installed Fedora Linux and the PC boots and works just fine.
My problem is that I want to run Windows XP on it. I have tried to install WinXP by inserting the CD into the CD drive and re-booting the PC. The CD Drive runs and I get the message that Windows is examining my Computer configuration - but then everything just stops and the CD drive stops running.
I have also tried booting from a BartPE CD - same thing. After a few seconds it just stops running.
The CD drive is fine. Any Linux application runs OK. The PC still boots into Linux just fine.
How do I get Linux off the PC and Windows XP onto it?
