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

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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!
