    Ciao. Ho un pc con 2 hd. I need to install windows xp sp3 in the first hd (that has 2 partition.) .the problem is that the original setup from the dvd does not let me to format and install. Take a look at the imagine. What can I do to resolve ? But also maybe I have to change the letter of the volumes because the C: is associated to the 2nd HD which contains appz and others. Help me....

    I translated part of your screenshot: "However, this disk does not contain a compatible partition. To be able to continue the installation of Windows XP, return to the screen partition selection and create a Windows XP compatible partition on the specified disk.

    I just installed Windows XP Pro last week. I know during the installation I had to delete all the existing partitions and format it.
