Quote from: Elmar on August 20, 2009, 19:53:58 PMwhat filesystem is on the harddisk, ntfs or fat? if its ntfs then format it as fatdo you have a pc that has:a floppydrive or cdrom drive a bios with usb support
Quote from: Elmar on August 23, 2009, 13:04:10 PMi am sure there are other waysthis is my plan:1) make the usb harddisk bootable. running freedos on it. the harddisk must be fat formatted.2) copy the i386 directory from the xp install cd to the usb harddisk.3) booting from the usb harddisk and format the internal harddisk to fat and make it bootable with freedos.4) copy the i386 directory to the internal harddisk5) boot freedos from the internal harddisk, change to the i386 directory and run "winnt"6) xp installer is running and you can convert the fat partition to ntfs and install xpi dont know what you are thinking about this. you can search the web for any other solution. maybe there is an easier way. for me its not difficult to do this, maybe you can do it too.regardselmar

Quote from: aiha on September 01, 2009, 08:16:41 AMdid the xp install change back the partition to ntfs ? this will probably happen again when i run winnt from the i386 folder ?

Quote from: aiha on September 12, 2009, 14:10:14 PMAll the computers I tried which still could boot from floppy did not have the possibility to boot from usb. I have 4 of these at home and I tried 4 others from friends.
Quote from: aiha on September 12, 2009, 14:10:14 PMIs there a way we can boot w98 from cd like freedos ?
