Anyone know how to create a bootable windows disk?

Postby acsguitar » Wed Aug 03, 2005 1:13 pm

So I want to reinstall Windows XP on my PC on another harddrive..

I don't have the disk's anymore but I have a valid XP Activation code..

So I have the XP ISO on disk that I downloaded and burned.

however, I want it to load up on another harddrive..Therefore it would need to autorunwhen I select boot from cd in bios...

Anyone know how to do that? Nero?

Sounds reasonable. I seem to remember that in Nero (or Roxio) or any of those programs, there is an option to make the disk bootable.

Worse comes to worse, you could always make a DOS disk from an older OS, and then use that to initialize you PC.

Since you have the ISO, it might even be bootable when you burn it. I think that all Win XP disks are bootable.
