    Reinstalling WinXP w/o CD ROM


    by ziniti ·

    My system does not recognize the internal CD ROM or an external one. How can I get Win XP to reinstall without the use of a CR ROM?

      Copy the I386 folder

      First off, does your BIOS recognize either of the drives?

      If it does, you can just make the bootable floppies for the install and use those. You should be fine from there.

      If it doesn’t, then you will want to boot to dos, and then copy the I386 folder to the computer and run setup from there…

      Lemme know if you need any further explanation.
