Re: help installing XP on a Dell
Sounds strange to me. If you delete all the partitions and do a full format in the NTFS system, there should be no problem. Once i did have an instance but then i just shut down the laptop left it for a while and tried later. hey presto! Also make sure that there are no massive scratched on the CD.
Ive helped format, toshiba, hp, sony and acer with an original win xp cd.
Branded recovery cds just apply the default programs that are programmed for the brand
