I tried many a times (unsuccessfully) to install Windows XP on my Hard Disk (after I had formatted my previous copy of WInME thinking I would be able to boot from the XP Install CD - sadly, after formatting,I realized that the XP CD is an upgrade type CD and can only be run from within windows). Booting thru Win98 startup disk, WinME startup disk and running the setup file in the i386 would only take setup so far before I it would get stuck at some file). Finally, after searching the net for a few hours, I figured out I need the Windows XP startup disks to install a FRESH copy. So, Downloaded, the file, it copied the image into SIX Floppy disks. Booting from the diskettes, installation went without a hitch. Then i got this idea of making the 6 floppies into a bootable CD and then copying the Windows XP Setup CD to the same so I woudl have an all in one package. I used Nero CD creator to make the bootable CD, Inserted the first startup disk in my floppy to be used to get the boot files. Nero made the CD without a problem. The CD even boots perfectly, however, after starting up, it goes thru the setup routines, and after some time, would come up with a message saying Insert XP startup Disk 2 in Drive A. After that, I couldn't do anything. There is no config.sys/autoexec.bat file in the WinXP startup disks for me to see and modify to assign drive A as the CD Drive. The setup program doesnt let you exit to Dos, it ONLY allows to restasrt the system. Does anyone know HOW to get round this?.
