maybe I can install it with a partition? and then delete the partition?.. idk

Right now I have one windows xp partition
so only xp is on the drive?

Are you for certain the 32 bit DVD is a good burn? will it boot when inserted while running XP ?

In the Bios, is there a setting for ACPI compliant ? Older computers need this to install win7
