Hi!

I'm currently trying to upgrade my Windows 98-2 to XP Pro. I installed it under Windows, but when the computer restart, it asks me to insert the CD of XP into de CD drive and press Enter.

I do it but nothing work, it seems it doesn't recognize my CD drive or CD. :(

Any solutions or tips ? :confused:

Thanks a lot :)

Have you tried setting your comp up to boot from the XP cd and upgrade from there? alot of times that goes alot smoother then attempting to do it from inside windows

re:

Boot from an 98 flop with cd rom support

After booting from the disk

go to your cdrom

select i386 and then run winnt.exe
example: e:\i386\winnt.exe

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
