I am trying to load Windows XP professional on my laptop but everytime it gets to the part where there is 23 minutes left and it says its copying and deleting files it gets stuck. So what I have done now is started it all over to where I have to create a partition which XP Pro will be installed on and i have the options of FAT or NFTS and those two but the "quickly" ones.

So i wanted to know is there a link that shows me what to do from the initial step of creating a partition and going from that point on. SOME ONE HELP ME PLEASE

Try this.


This is also a good website.


Then there is this one but i disagree with only a 10 gig xp partition. I make it a 20 gig partition.
