I've followed the instructions in this article click here and the computer boots to my Win XP desktop- like it always does.Is this what's supposed to be happening?Is the use of the boot disk bypassing the boot files on C:\ and then loading the system files from C:\Windows by using the parameters in Boot.ini?Can somebody please confirm this for me.
What you trying to do?
No specific problem, just curiosity really.I've created the boot disk as insurance against a corrupt Ntldr or ntdetect.com, my intention being to boot from the disk and then copy the files to my hard drive.I know I can use the Win XP CD to repair a boot problem, but I thought I'd create the boot disk just to see what happens.When I use the boot disk the floppy drive is read for a while before the boot process continues in C:\Windows.If I understand the article correctly this is what should be happening, but I'm not totallly sure, and wondered if somebody can give a definite Yes or No.
If you copied the Ntldr and the Ntdetect.com files then the FDD wil boot you to :\windows
Cheers, ticked and closed.
