hi im having problems with installing xp on my nc10

Hi and welcome -
From what I read you must be trying to do a Reinstall or downgrade / upgrade to this system -
Can you please list the original O/System and why you are installing XP now, as most seem to have had XP installed -

Thank You -

The below is from Samsung on how a CD/DVD player is usually installed -

The Samsung NC10 is not fitted with a built in CD/DVD drive and this can make installing applications,
games and playing movies more than a bit awkward. Fortunately it's possible to purchase an external CD/DVD drive that connects to your NC10 using it's USB ports.
Some of these drives are also capable of burning DVDs & CDs. They often require two USB ports to give them the power needed,
in a similar fashion to external hard drives. Make sure you've installed the drivers that come with your drive before youve connected it.
It pays to follow the instructions on these as drivers can make things very awkward if they go wrong.

The link that I have left above is to the forum that is directly concerned with these netbooks -
If you log on there you might get more direct answers , as I am just copying from the threads on that forum -

Thank You -
