Installing Windows XP on a 2TB SATA drive.
« on: November 15, 2019, 10:40:38 pm »
Hi guys, I have a small issue trying to install this old piece of software, I have an ISO file with WXP Pro SP3, I put it on a flash drive using DirectGRUB, any other program like WinSetupFromUSB etc. didn't work but this worked fine, everything seemed to work until the installer saw my 2TB drive as a whole drive (E: ~190K MB), I could not install on it obviously so I need some advice from you. Perhaps I need a smaller drive like 50GB, but I need to make sure I really can't do anything about it.
Specs:
CPU: Intel Core i3 2100
RAM: 8GB DDR3
Drive: Toshiba HD2D120 (HDD with 4 partitions, one for W10)
Motherboard: Gigabyte H61M-DS2
Current OS: Windows 10 Pro x64 (the goal is dual-booting it with XP)
Pls explain in proper language, I'm not really much of a computer pro
