Possibly a Drive Controller driver is not present but usually if that is the case you wont get to the "F8" Screen. You need to go to the Mfg Website and download the SATA or RAID Driver, it should be less than 1MB and get it onto a floppy. When booting up to the XP disk press F6 when it says to add a driver and follow the onscreen directions.
It's amazing how people don't even really read the thread. They just go about spewing answers to things that are no longer a priority.
Go get a PS/2 keyboard. They're 6 bucks at walmart.
we're up to the part where he presses f8.
he presses it.
we determined he's using a wireless usb keyboard.
wireless usb keyboard is NOT going to work until AFTER you're into windows.
he needs to get a wired keyboard, be it usb or ps/2
then we'll see if any more help is needed.
