i'd create a bootable usb flash drive with "hp usb format tool", and boot my vista lap, but i can't read any hard drive to install xp.

as xp cd refuse to boot at all, although i set bios to boot from cd and disabled serial support for HDD.

the usb flash had took the letter C: and i can browse its content but there is no other partitions visible ??

acer 4315

Thank you...

SATA HDD? Need drivers loaded to access it (?)... Couldn't say about the CD-ROM problem... BTW, you didn't say what is on the USB stick (OS you are booting...). Edited by submix8c

DOS doesn't fly... doesn't read/write/"see" NTFS. You need an NTFS-type bootable (2k and up). Look around the forum for how-to on creating an XP Bootable USB Install. I think there's one in the Unattended section... Create that one and install directly from the USB.

You can also use a WinPE or NTFSDOS to view NTFS volumes. WinPE follows NTFS permissions while NTFSDOS doesn't. So I use NTFSDOS to reattribute, move or delete files otherwise inaccessible.

Thanks Tripredacus for the info...
