I created a single partition on the hard drive,and formatted it. Went into the BIOS, and changed the boot order to CD Rom, then A then C.
The CD I have for XP is bootable, but when I reboot my system, it returns an error "Invalid System Disk".
I've tried to double check everything, but to no avail.
The only thing I notice is that the CD ROM doesn't appear in the list of IDE devices, for either secondary IDE devices.
The CD does work when you boot from a boot floppy.
ANy advice would be more than welcome.
