I currently have two hard disks in my computer:
c: - running vista operating system no problems - Primary master - (80gb)
d: - completely empty - Secondary Slave - (200gb)
And obviously a dvd drive (Secondary master).
My aim is to put XP onto d: as it is blank.
I run the dvd with the xp disc in on startup and it starts going through the setup process. I reformat d: during the setup process just to make sure and tell it to install on to that drive/partition. It copies all the xp setup files onto the d: and then its time for the reboot. When it reboots, it asks if i want to boot from the cd so i leave it to count down and then boot from the hard drive in order to start the GUI part of the XP setup but all that happens is the screen goes blank. It is set to boot from the primary master after the dvd drive but it doesnt start the setup process. I think its got something to do with the vista booting process on the c: but i dont know what to do or how to get around it.
