Hello everyone

I have a test Laptop, currently Ubuntu 7.10 and fedora as double boot installed. 
Because of webcam driver development I decided to trash the first partition and 
install Windoz on it. But this was not possible, the Windoz install CD did not 
boot on this laptop :-(. I tried the CD on a other PC and it was booting just fine!
Today, I bought a new HD for that laptop and now the Windoz install CD just 
booted fine!? and I could install Windoz!

Does the Windoz XP Pro install CD have some "anti" Linux detection?

Anyone out there had the same experience?
