It suggests that you can down load a set up option of floppy discs to repair XP HE if your PC does not come with a repair option on XP CD - mine comes with a "factory" CD only. Could someone please provide me with a link to this? Thanks David
Thanks both for your very prompt suggestions. The first link (MS)looked very promising until I read the last line " Note that you will need to use the Windows XP CD-ROM to finish Setup." I can't use this because I only have a "factory" CD. Any other options? Thanks David
I have used this to make floppyies for my XP home and it didnt ask for the xp cd,it does need 6 floppy to make,all you do is run the program with a blank formatted floppy in the drive,at least this is all i did.
1. Did you use the 6 floppies to do a windows XP repair, thats what I wanted them for - just in case? I note you reckon it did NOT ask for the XP CD! What did you use the floppies for? 2. I have NOT any XP problems, its a just in case I do exercise. Thanks Both David
PS - just noticed your reply, which said it did not ask for the XP CD to down load the 6 floppies. I think you misread my reply which said MS will require the XP CD to complete the set up following the use of the 6 floppies. Thanks David
This part i do not know like you i made them for when and if they were needed so i havent used them yet,so cannot be sure if it asks for the cd after you have used them,i do know it didnt when i made them.
