You will need to have an XP with at least SP2 or SP3.
Another alternative is to:
- Download the latest Service Pack for Windows XP.
- Download a software called Nlite.
- Slipstream the service pack, thus creating a new OS bootable CD with SP2/3.
Make sure to set the drive as IDE in the bios. Otherwise if you have it as AHCI or RAID, you may need to slipstream the F6 driver also.
All the best,
I have the same situation as "wing8383" faced. But I am trying to install XP with SP2. Also, In Bios the drive type is set as IDE. Still the issue persists - KBD locks up half-way thro'.
All other peripherals - Grapchis Card (MSI) on PCI exp slot, HDD (512GB Seagate), DVD writer (Sony), XP installation Media and 2GB DDR3 memory have been individually tested elsewhere and found working.
