I want to re-install the XP Home SP3 that came on the reinstall CD. I have set USB Storage as the boot device in the bios settings. I've also tried setting CD/DVD as the boot device. No difference. It seems to be reading the CD, then comes up with "Operating System Not Found."
If I boot up into Snow Leopard, it shows up in the Finder as "XP_Home_SP3 and has a bunch of files on it.
My CD/DVD drive is one that I pulled out of a desktop computer and I'm getting power and data connections to it through a USB hard drive enclosure.
Anyone know why SL can find files on this CD, but the mini doesn't seem able to boot from it--indeed, doesn't even think it can find a Windows operating system?

I just now noticed that the drive has jumpers on the back. I wonder if there is a jumper setting that needs changed?

OK, I tried all three jumper settings (Master, Slave, Cable Select) and it made no difference.
