Hi I am having trouble installing Windows XP on a new hard drive while connected to a computer i have and was wondering if there were a way to install it using a usb storage adapter for an IDE hard drive? The computer is a dell optiplex sx260 (workstation computer) so its hard drives are laptop style. Currently when i try to boot from the disc while it is connected to this computer it sits at the "press any key to boot from CD..."
Anyone have any ideas i could try to get windows installed? or is it possible the hard drive is bad?
