Are you using a SATA drive? If so, maybe you need to load the SATA driver from a diskette when you see the "Press F6" prompt?
Google has lots of info on this. I found this article which is pretty specific: http://www.alexnolan...stallxpsata.htm

I have a SATA hard drive and for me it was really hard getting the drivers loaded because I don't have a floppy drive.
If you feel comfortable with it you can also slipstream your SATA drivers onto a Slipstreamed XP disk.
You might want to take a look at this article.

Modern motherboards and hard disks do not need any SATA drivers. The needed support is already available in the BIOS and windows.
