    Hello Guys,
    I've had a quick look around and can't seem to see it anywhere so could someone please post a step by step guide on how to create a bootup CD (not disk) for XP. Which includes things like what files need to be copied and how etc.
    This would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I don't believe that you will find one. xp doesn't boot with a diskette unless you are using the fat32 filing system. I could be wrong but I don't think so. If your using fat32 it might. I'm not sure on that one. frogg_mann

    Welcome to the forums frogg_mann. :)

    I've never created the six boot floppies for xp but I would assume they act in the same way as the xp cd. Fat32 or NTFS either should be able to boot.

    btw If you have a cd rom that boots then there is no need for the floppies. Just insert the xp cd & boot up........once the bios is set......which it already should be.
