I've noticed that some of you have sucessfully done this install. I can't get past the point when the Windows installer sees the drive that I've formatted FAT32 with the proper size and it sees it at C: But upon executing the install I get this message: Windows XP Professional Setup ============================== Your computer's startup program cannot gain access to the disk containing the partition or free space you chose. Setup cannot install Windows XP on this hard disk. This lack of access does not necessarily indicate an error condition. For example, disks attached to a SCSI adapter that wasn't installed by your computer manufacturer or to a secondary hard disk controller, are typically not visible to the startup program unless special software is used. Contact your computer or hard disk controller manufacture for more information. On x86-based computers, this message may indicate a problem with the CMOS drive type settings, See your disk controller documentation for more information. I have also tried it using a USB connection, but the results are the same. Any tips?
