    Trying to install XP on an old AJP Notebook Model D87P

    Setup gets so far as recognising the disk and displaying its size.

    "Press Enter to Install Windows on Selected Partition"

    Then "Unknown Disk" is displayed and something about a Non XP Compatable Partition

    Tried it with 2 HDDs and 2 different XP Install disks

    Deleted and Created Partitions

    Restored BIOS to defaults

    Would it be Software, hardware or Bios

    Thanks
