    The only thing you have to do in the bios is make sure that the system is set to boot off of the CD drive FIRST. If that is a go, the put the Windows cd in the drive, restart the computer and press any key to boot off of the cd when prompted. Foloow the instructions to install Windows XP and let her rip. When it is all done WIndows will let you know if it needs any more drivers....Good Luck.
