  1. Yea i think so. The first time i tried to install xp in the extented partition, i didnt set partition active too.
  2. Oh WOW, i made it at last. This is my way: 1) Format USB stick(256MB) with HP tools (windows 98 dos) 2) Copy Partition Magic to USB stick. WINXP Installation: 1) Copy the \I386 folder from WinXP CD into the USB Harddisk (2GB FAT32) 2) Set my system BIOS to boot from USB. 3) Delete all partitions from the Laptop Hardisk using Partition Magic and create a new one with a main partition and a 1GB extended partition. 4) Set the main partition as active with Partiton Magic. 5) Reboot using the USB harddisk to effect partition changes. 6) Format and transfer DOS system to Laptop main partition using: x:\>format x: /s 7) Format the 1GB extended partition as well. 8) Run SMARTDRV 9) XCOPY \I386 from usb harddisk to laptop 1GB extended partition. 10) Copy SMARTDRV.EXE config.sys n himem.sys from the usb stick to laptop main partition. 11) Remove USB and reboot 12) Once in DOS, run SMARTDRV 13) Goto the extended partition \I386 folder and run WINNT I thought i gonna get the "Unknow Hard Error" again, but i didnt!!!!!!!!! I used a whole week to figure out how to do it.... LOL Thank You very much!!
