    I'm attempting to install windows xp on a system currently running Linux. I've installed a second hard drive to install xp on. I've installed Disk Director w/ OS Selector which allows Linux to boot with no problem.

    When I attempt to install xp I have numerous problems. I've tried changing the disk order but when the windows install reboots OS Selector won't run. If I try to reactivate OS Selector it tells me it reactivation is unsuccessful.

    How do I use your product to do this?
