can you make a boot disk in XP? or do you have to use a 98 boot disk?
yes you can make boot disc's you need 6 floppies for the set and the set up file is on microsofts site make sure you get the right one there are 2 sets one for PRO and one for HOME
WinXP_EN_PRO_BF.EXE is the name of the PRO set
6 disks?? wow thats alot... that would take 10 years to boot...
i dont understand why they left out the option to make a boot disk in windows?
thanks for the quick reply !!!
Why dont you make a boot cd
with your windows xp in it.
thats a good idea.. i was just thinkn that...
XP BOOT FLOPPIES
You p.c will not take ten years to run the six floppies,it takes mins and will then ask for windows xp cd-rom.
I foind the files are the same as the ones that the cd load anyway.
If you are not installing on a empty drive ,IE after a format, you could just do a full install from your exesting install and it will give the option to download upgrades for the install beforehand.
Prob better with a format and boot p.c from windows xp cd-rom.
I hace did all varients, and seem the same.
