    I am trying to install XP, on my second hard drive (a Seagate Barracuda 250GB) in my mac pro.

    I booted from the Windows XP SP2 CD and installed it, but when it tries to boot into Windows, I get the message:

    Windows could not start because of a disk hardware configuration problem. Could not read from the selected boot disk. Check boot path and disk hardware.

    Talking to myself.

    I found the cause of the problem to be the jumper on the harddrive, when removed, it allows XP to boot.
