Just read the article. You copy all the files from the ISO to an actual folder on the HDD. Use DOS and start XP setup. It should be pretty straightforward.Ok, this sounds exciting the only question I have is what command would I use for the system to know where to look for the ISO?
Ok, sow I have this P4 Tower that is literally a fossil ....but a working fossil nonetheless. Over the years taken a lot from it but I recently managed to get everything I need to get it up and running. The only problem I have now is Windows.
Since this system is very old and not flashy at all I was looking to get windows XP pro working in the.
1.After a tedious trial I managed to get a windows XP pro ISO that looks right (should work)
2.Then wrote the disk image on a flash drive after formatting it. I did this with ultra ISO
3.changed the boot order in Bios menu to start with USB .......failed to boot
4.On startup I pressed f9 to get boot menu then selected USB still failed to boot
The error I get is NTLDR is missing.
What am I missing, what am I doing wrong,if you know pls share thy wisdom
Hmm yes, it should be easy, but in my case, I have to do some digging around as I am not a well-equipped user of commands.Just read the article. You copy all the files from the ISO to an actual folder on the HDD. Use DOS and start XP setup. It should be pretty straightforward.
