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

| Anyone out there had the same experience?

its got nothing to do with "anti linux"  detection. theres no such
thing.  im 100% sure its got more to do with one of these 3, the cdrom
driver, bios boot settings, or the type of cd you used.
