HELP:Installing XP on netbook

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a copy of windows XP HOME that I want to put on my netbook witch has windows 7. My netbook has 220gb drive.

I am using this video, I am having trouble at 3:40 mark in the video
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-q-Dt1EeCHM

I press escape, it should show my USB drive and my hard drive, it only shows my USB drive and it list my USB drive as my C: drive. Why is it not recognizing my 220gb hard drive?

My "boot priority order is:

USB HDD (USB Drive)
IDE0:ST925315As (hard drive)
USB CDROM (No idea)
USB FDD: (no idea)
Network book: Atheros boot agent (no idea)
IDE1: (secondary hard drive slot?)

Never mind I figured out the problem. For any one that comes across this change the hard drive setting in Bios to IDE
