I had some problems with Xp. My computer froze when I updated to the latest nvidia drivers and had SP 2 or 3 installed. I formatted in hopes of solving the problem. Now I can not install XP at all.
It goes through the install, after the first reboot, XP then starts over the install. When I select the partition again it says there is already a version of XP installed and warns about multi boot OSs on the same partition. If I try to boot to it my computer says improper boot device please replace and hit any key. I tried install this on 2 different IDE on 4 different SATA drives and my SATA Raid 0 config. It all does the same thing. It is just in an endless loop? I have reset the cmos and even replaced my battery. Any thoughts?
