Creating USB Boot Disk

By maf ·
I have created a UFD to boot Windows XP. Ther are four files on the disk namely bartpe (image files), mtdetect (ms-dos application), ntldr (file) and winnt.sif (SIF file). When i try to boot with the UFD i get the message "MISSING OPERATING SYSTEM".
What could be the problem? I did not get any errors when i created the boot disk using bartpe.

I think True Blue intended to give you this resource link:

to point out that that it isn't bootable and does'nt have an Active Partition.

That will teach me to put words into someone else's mouth. I'm glad you posted back, because now I see your point.

It is a great Article :)

but without that extra information on how to make the Partition Active a lot of the people using it as a guide are getting lost.

I don't think that it would be to hard to add that extra info.
