    Hi guys, got a question to ask. Let's say I've got a motherboard which doesn't allow me to save anything to BIOS. And I've got only 1 HDD in the PC that this motherboard is in. The HDD is 60 gigs. Assuming that I don't have any other OS on this HDD, then how would I be able to install WinXP on this particular PC? Thanks for any and all help.

    (Note: No booting from CD-ROM 'cos the BIOS goes nuts when you try to save something to BIOS and it has to be resetted via the motherboard jumpers.)

    Go to the MS site & get the boot floppy program for xp. Sorry don't have the link. This will create six floppies for you to boot from. That's about it. Boot up with I assume the first floppy & away you go. Have the cd ready to insert when prompted.
