Hi there,

Does the other partitions contain data?or you recently created them by norton ghost?if so then delete all the partition and create new partition from xp installation disk itself.

Thanks

Hi,

C drive is having a file system that is not supported by windows xp. If you are

sure that it doesn't contain any data then delete the C drive partition and

then select that unpartitioned space and press C to create it and press enter.

Now select that partition C and try to install the windows xp.
