I guess I should tell you what the problem(s) were!
1. Pretty sure the 2 discs I used the first 2 times to install XP are corrupted in some way!
3rd disc was successful!
2. This being the big one, when I went in to bios to see if AHCI was enabled(it was not)
I read all the side notes when you highlight a category and there was a note that said under SATA enabled(instead of AHCI) use SATA ports 1-4 only! Ports beyond 4 can be enabled through the OS later! That I dont get, but its not a big deal.
Yes, I had the SSD connected to port 5!
After those changes it went fairly smooth!
Activation process sucked when I talked to an agent(for lack of a better word/name)
About damn time!
Anybody have 8GB(4x2gb) DDR2 800mhz they would like to donate?
