Hello all,

I would like to format my PC and do a clean install of Windows XP.
I looked around the web on how to do it, it's just I seem to be stuck on one step.
I get to the part where you can: install windows, create a partition, or delete a partition.

I chose to delete the existing partitions of my SSD and HDD.

When i choose to install windows onto the SSD, it says that I should go back and make a partition on the HDD.

It then creates a New Raw partition on the SSD.

so what's left is the HDD unpartitioned,
the SSD unpartitioned and partitioned

theres one that says New RAW 60 GB
and one thats only 8 MB or GB

my SSD is 64 GB

Where do i go from there ?

I read to get the most out of your SSD, you would have to install windows in ACHI mode,

I tried to, but I'm met with a blue screen.

I also read that you need F6 drivers to do so.

How would i go about obtaining those drivers and installing it with my Windows XP Professional x64 Edition disc ?

I forgot to mention that i disconnected the HDD, as I also read that would solve the first dilemma
