this is a great tut but it's not mentioning my problem.....
How to clean install WinXP
Scroll down the page to the step by step instructions on how to clean install. Post back if you have any problems.
1. Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM and reboot the computer
If you see a message about hitting any key to boot the CD, do so now.
Otherwise, you will see a message about Setup inspecting your system.
2. MS-DOS portion of Setup begins
In the first stage of Setup, you will see a series of blue and gray MS-DOS-based screens. In the first step, you will be asked to press F6 if you need to install any third-party or RAID drivers.
Then, you can press F2 to initiate the Automated System Recovery (ASR) tool, a new XP feature that lets you recover non-booting systems from XP Setup. Ignore this.
Finally, Setup will load the files it needs to start a bare bones version of XP. This may take a few minutes.

thnx the don.
Hi When i built my new computer i put my old harddrive in so did not have trouble you are getting. when I put in my old hard drive which i was told to do by the computer shop i got the 2nd hard drive, and motherboard. so that i did not have that trouble.
The A: that you are seeing is for either to recognise the motherboard or harddrive, is there a way for you to log onto site of motherboard and download onto floppy which is a drive the drivers you want, also i agree with you this should not come up, also have you made any of the drives you have installed slaves.
