Don't think that will work reliably, swapping a drive mid-install like that. Even that early, the setup files are geared for the particular chipset.
Honestly, I believe the best way is to use peace's method as described in an earlier thread, which is to install XP on the hard drive in another system, boot with SAFE mode, go into the hardware profile and change the IDE controller to "standard" plus remove any chipset-related devices (i.e. sound, video, etc.), THEN power down and swap the drive into your I-Opener. The link with details is:
Admittedly, I've not tried it on any of my own I-Openers, but I *have* used it several times for motherboard upgrades, and I believe the principle is sound. One item to remember: putting the latest drivers you can find for all onboard or external devices into a separate folder on the hard drive *before* you swap it will make your life much easier. Especially helpful with the I-Opener's lack of external drives.
