I am having difficulty getting WinXP to intall to a Hp xw6000 workstation. I set the Bios to boot from CD first to get setup going, allocate drive etc. then setup starts to load files. When the system reboots for first time the unit won't boot from the HD. I have tried changing the boot order etc. but can't get it to work for me.. Any advice would be welcome. Thx in advance.

Seems like you need to load a IDE/SCSI/RAID driver during installation (Press F6 to load driver prompt during WinXP setup) You will need to find what type in your system first, drivers are found here http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=295781&prodTypeId=12454&prodSeriesId=295779&swLang=13&taskId=135&swEnvOID=1093#113100
