I'm trying to install Windows XP on a TravelMate 7530 laptop. I used WinSetupFromUSB to make an bootable USB installation disk.
The problem occurs when the installation is started. The step where destination partition is chosen, it shows 0 for unallocated space and a C:/ for 2GB, which is actually the USB stick itself.
There seems to be no sign of the hard disk. Any ideas what could be tried?
I deleted all partitions with PartedMagic. However, it's still showing 0 for unallocated space.
I've also created an NTFS primary partition with PartedMagic and it's still not seen by the setup.
Update: If root (hd0, 0) is changed to root (hd1, 0), then grub4dos complains "Filesystem type is ntfs, partition type 0x07 configfile /winsetup.lst" Error 15: File not found
That is, it now finds the harddisk (hd1) but it now tries to find the winsetup.lst in the empty primary ntfs partition instead of the USB stick.
