Long story short, I have the need to install my legal copy of Windows XP on a new 64 bit AMD HP 455G1 laptop running Windows 7 Pro, because my old software does not operate correctly in the XP virtual machine mode!
So, I added a new 80GB partition (currently W) on the HDD of my laptop. I was able to get the XP SATA driver for another model HP AMD laptop, and have slipstreamed my Windows XP SP2, SP3 and x86 driver into an ISO file using nLite.
The installation works fine up to the point where it asks where to install XP and the partition (W) I created is not shown, so setup stops.
Any ideas how I can get my laptop to recognize the new partition? As you all know there ain't nobody out there supporting XP anymore, and that is a crying shame!
