I did that, but somehow the xp setup did not delete everything else in the harddrive. It refuse to delete the whole partition since there were some files in there that needed for Window setup. Therefore I go to the Western Digital site to download a dos program that will configure the HDD. So it is use in a bootup disk. And the program it opens allow me to fully reformat the HDD.
Now After that I encounter the problem in which even I just putting in the Window CD will not work. Because you will probably know that usually whenever you install a Window OS, you will first install some hidden files then you have to restart to begin the true installation.
This problem is getting annoying. It is a few days now. I can not figure out how to begin to install this. All I need is for the HDD to recognize the CD and take me to the installation.
