Ok I put the windows xp pro cd in I restart the computer then i let it load it reads my hard disk(40g IBM deskstar) and i promt it to either install windows xp or repair it and I make a partition C: drive and i go NTFS (quick) and it gives me the blue screen saying "Make sure the drive is switched on and properly connected to your computer. if the disk is SCSI disk, make sure your SCSI dvices are properly terminated. Consult your computer manual or SCSI adapter documentation for more information."
