How do i make a boot disk for xp pro


OSNN Veteran Addict
you can pop a floppy in the drive, goto my computer right clikc, choose format and make sure you use the copy system files option :)

or you can download and use the 6 microsoft ERD (Emergency Recovery Disks) heheh...i'd go with option numba 1 :)


XP cd?

Or you could just use the windows xp cd to serve as a boot disk instead of copying system files to A:\..I have done it a few times, so whatever is best for you.


You can boot straight from the windows xp CD and not bother with the boot CD's.
If you use this way it will give you the option of an upgrade (if an o/s is already present) or a fresh install.
Don't be a nugget like I was and used a copied CD with the wrong volume name and wondered why it wouldn't auto boot : )
Good luck - let me know how you get on or if you need any further assistance.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
