Default Help XP Installation - 12-08-2011, 06:31 AM

I had snow leopard installed and decided to give XP a try. I used a USB hard drive along with a Windows XP SP2 disc. I used the following guide
Ultimate way to Install Windows XP From USB Drive

I can get to the blue install screen and wipe out all the osx partitions and format the newly create partition, but when it gets to checking disk it fails. The following message is displayed

Setup has determined that drive C: is corrupted and cannot be repaired. Setup cannot continue. To quit Setup, press F3.

The strange thing is that the screen before was showing D: is the drive that XP was going to be installed too. The C: drive is the external USB device i am trying to load from. Any help is appreciated

This issue is resolved. It turned out to be the USB External Drive I was using. I purchased a 4GB flash drive and I had no issues.
