You didnt have to take a rep point away for that...
:swearing: :swearing:

Windows bootup disks for XP are very horrible, I've never gotten one to work. Because, XP is not DOS-based like 98, 95, 3.1. If you really need to boot using a 98 CD

If that doesnt help, you need to have a CD burning program like Nero because they have an option for bootable disks. Copying files into the horrible Windows burning doest work.

I cant believe you took a rep away when i was trying to HELP you... geez :swearing: :swearing:

Nero won't work against that , I tried. You need those boot files from the 6 windows xp boot disks but i don't know where to put them....

Booting from the six XP boot disks is the same as booting from the XP CD, if I'm not mistaken. (I know for 2000 it's the same either way.) If for some reason you're trying to copy the files created on the floppies to disk, then (like it was said), you need to make the CD bootable when you burn the files to the CD. ...but again, if you can get it to work, it will be the same as booting from the XP CD.
