Installing XP Professional Clean copy RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a copy of XP Professional that I'm trying to install.   I go through all the steps and then it says it is copying files to the HD but when the system reboots it boots from the CD and not the HD.  When I switch the boot order, still an error - like not a bootable device.  The version of XP is 2002 and i think it has SP1 on it.  The motherboard  is an ASUS NF8.  The HD is a WD 80 GB the Video card is generic and nothing else is installed.  Would things run different if I got a copy with SP3 on it?
