    Is it possible to install XP Pro on a formated drive? (No os on it)
    If so, how would i do it? I tried it before and i think it said something like it can't run 32bit apps or something...

    Insert the cdrom in the drive. Reboot the system and when xp boots up select install. During the installation you will again reformat by following the onscreen commands. You should use ntfs as well and when prompted , delete any current partition.

    In addititon your system needs to be set to boot from cdrom 1st
