    I've been having numerous problems with booting into my computer. So much different stuff hard to keep it strait, so I decided to make some XP Pro bootup disks, and when I run the first one after a bit I get this message:


    File \biosinfo.inf could not be loaded.
    The error code is 4097

    Setup cannot continue. Press any key to exit.


    What is up with this?? What's the problem, how do I get the biosinfo.inf file back so it can load so I can fix my computer????

    it's having trouble reading the files off the bootdisk, i think.

    you say you're having lots of problems? they could all be related to one thing. memory, perhaps. this would prevent even bootdisks from working.

    If it is saying your HD (???) doesn't exist go into the bios & see if it is being picked up there.

    If not chose automatic & it should pick it up.
