It has been awhile since I installed XP but won't the install disk detect the HD then partition (if not already) it and then format it with NTFS?? I have a 100gig HD and Xp didn't give me any options for formatting it used NFTS I believe because of the size of the HD.
Best to you, James
sure I was in a hurry so I didnt have time to do that or remember how.
I just installed xp then the first thing I did was install the atapi patch to update the driver then I added the regkey for 48bit lba and rebooted
