    Are you trying to load XP 32 bit or Windows 8 32 bit? I'm confused.

    Also I noticed this morning I can not get to safe mode. I was able to yesterday. If I can't get windows 8 to load I'm considering wiping the SSD. And getting a new laptop. Any suggestions on how to wipe XP from the SSDS. I couldnt get DBAN boot and nuke to load from CD. So I'm not sure of my other options. Sledgehammer?

    In that case, try installing from a USB Pendrive.
    Create Bootable USB or DVD with Windows 8 ISO
