It's an old PC but runs XP fine but I need a larger capacity hard drive. So I get a compatible SATA drive and make a USB boot from an ISO of XP set BIOS to boot from CD/USB and I get 'no boot drive found'. So no problem, I thought,and reverted to the original C:drive, reset BIOS to boot from this drive. But I got 'no boot drive found'.
The only way I can get it to boot is to use an XP recovery disc and when it comes to what do you want to do I enter exit and the C; dive boots.
Any ideas why my original C: drive won't boot?
Thanks Fruit Bat I did use Rufus but when i checked compatibility XP was ok. I note that latest Rufus starts at Win 7. Can you explain why my USB boot won't work?
I suspect there is a boot problem with my PC as my original C drive won't boot without recovery disc. Time for the great computer skip in the sky i think, which is a pity because I'm addicted to XP.
