NEED A LITTLE WITH XP INSTALLATION. RRS feed

    HI EVERYONE, GLAD TO BE HERE!
    I JUST THOUGHT ABOUT A QUESTION ABOUT BOOT CAMP!
    FIRST, MY PROBLEM: RECENTLY, I INSTALLED THE 10.5 X, AND TRIED TO INSTALL XP, HOWEVER, DESPITE ALL THE PREP I DID(IT DIDN'T ASK ME WHAT FORMAT OF THE DRIVE DID I WANT IT TO BE! AUTOMATICELY INTO FAT32), AFTER THE INITIAL WINDOWS FILE SETUP BLUE SCREEN, THE STAGE THAT THE CD WOULD GO CRAZY IN THE DISC DRIVE FOR ABOUT 5 MINUTES, AND THEN, BEN!!!BLACK SCREEN WITH BLINKING CURSOR!!! MANY TIMES I TRIED, SAME RESULT! OF COURSE, I TRIED ALL THE SOLUTION POSTED ONLINE, BUT THEY DON'T WORK.
    NOW, I THINK THE PROBLEM IS THE BOOT CAMP DRIVE IS UNBOOTABLE FOR SOME REASON. AFTER A FEW NIGHTS OF LOSING SLEEP, SUDDENLY THOUGHT ABOUT THIS. TO ME, ALL THE SIGNS ARE POINTING DIRECTLY TO THE PROBLEM. THE WINDOWS DISC WILL BOOT, ONLY WHEN IT SHOULD GO INTO THE INSTALLATION STAGE, WHERE THE HARD DRIVE STARTS TO INVOLVE, IT STOPS.

    IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THE WINDOWS XP STOPPING THE HARD DRIVE FROM FUNTIONING??? BUT I TRIED TO INSTALL IT IN PARALLELS, IT WORKS!!?!
    ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEA, I REALLY WANT TO PLAY SOME GAMES IN WINDOWS, T_T!!!
    ALL HELP IS APPRECIATED!
