Finished the install. The reason is that your answer didn't help me but the link in your comment did. I'll leave it up to you. I just want that you get credit for finding the answer and also for anyone else having the same problem to be able to find the solution quickly.

joeqwerty, so far the install that you linked to in your comment is working. I'll add another comment when it is done then I would request that you move your comment to an actual answer so that I can accept it.

Thanks Tom but I've already read the stuff at Paul T.'s website (aka the link in the description). This even steps through the USB boot option although it uses different programs. I will check those out if I need to.

I did not want to do the upgrade from within XP as I prefer to start from scratch with a clean harddrive. THANKS for that link. That is exactly what I was looking for. I have an older MSI motherboard so I will definitely have to try this all out this weekend. If it works then I'll let you know so you can move your comment to an answer that I'll accept.
