Why NTFS? XP works better on FAT32 cause NTFS was unstable (used to be)..
I etc are flash memory vs disk drive.. not relevant..

Are you loading Sata controller drivers at F6?
Remove all USB devices (not keyboard & mouse)

You likely don't need SATA controller drivers if XP CD sees any partitions.

I would try deleting the XP partition in Disk Mgmt then creating it using XP installer NTFS, full format.

If this fails, create NTFS Primary partition using Partition Wizard bootable CD, then rightclick>Modify>Set to Active to try XP install.

If it fails again, you can use the PW CD to rightclick System Reserved partition to Modify>Set to Active which will remove active flag from XP partition.

I don't think a fourth primary is possible (I could be wrong but I think three is MAX for primary). That's why I created my rescue DVD's then removed the recovery partition.

Read the tutorial to see how it is done. You are allowed four Primary, but Disk Mgmt will create Logical by default as fourth partition for further expansion.

You may wish to do this is you ever run Recovery Disks, so your Recov partition remains intact since it is more stable method for running Recovery than the disks.
+1 Thanks for the support.
