My problem is, when I place my windows XP cd in and boot, it will start fine but when it comes to detecting the hard drives later on it can't find any so I cant delete/create partitions and install XP.
I realized I needed the third party program drivers for the sata hard drives. I got them, cleaned up my usb stick, and extracted them to my usb. When I placed it in and restarted the computer, it comes up with a screen saying place the factory floopy disk into drive A: and hit enter to continue, but it does nothing.
I have tried both, having the usb in on start up, and placing it right before that screen comes up and it does nothing.
Please help, thanks.
