Re: My First Custom Computer Build
Installing XP shouldn't be a problem with any drive.
The only thing I can think of, is the CD ROM/DVD Rom drive may not be set to read at bootup, in which case, just go into the BIOS (Del usually) and set in one of the main menu's to check for CD's before the hard drive.
Then place the XP CD in, and let it do its work.
I advise you make a partition during setup, making the XP installation a seperate part of the hard drive, so if you ever wished to do a clean up of Windows, you could just format the C drive for example, keeping your main data files intact.
