hi every one back again,i cant install xp, i use my six xp set up floppies,then i put in xp cd rom, format hd from there, files are copied to installation folders, i take out last floppie system reboots and instead of continuing with xp set up i get a black screen with error message "missing operating system" the boot sequence is set to floppy, ide-0, cdrom, i have tried another hd just in case original was faulty, but still have the problem, can any one advise me please, thanks
hi chaps i tried booting from the xp cd rom i get messages "boot from atapi cd rom " and then "missing operating system" you do realise that i am trying to install xp on a formated hd and not do a clean install over xp, thanks
Sorry, just stepping in here (as the thread title intrigued me) --- pc mad, you say "back again". Could you refer to an earlier post so others can try to catch up, difficult to determine where you are starting from you see.
An installation is quite straightforward so there must be more to it. (Floppies?)
sorry if this is way off,and i most probably am but.....sledgehammer - walnut - CRacKed. Floppy limit 1.44mb- install file spanning, did i mention floppies with xP setup? cmos clearing? boot order wrong for xP_ hdd-0, cdrom, floppy. Just some questions, but hey - im that kind of person...
