How To Install East Asian Language Support In XP Without XP CD

  1. First, check to see if you have the i386 folder on your hard drive. This folder will have the East Asian Language Support files that you need to install. The i386 folder can be found here: C:\WINDOWS\Driver Cache\i386 or here: C:\i386
  2. If you cannot find the i386 folder, you will need to obtain a copy of the Windows XP CD and copy the i386 folder to a USB thumb drive.
  3. Click on the Start menu, open Control Panel, then open Regional and Language Options.
  4. Select the Languages tab and under the Supplemental language support frame, check the the box next to "install support for East Asian languages".
  5. Click on Ok or Apply, then you'll receive a dialog box which says that "The following file ' - ' is missing.." and it also allows you to specify a directory where it should be found. Click on Browse and select the "I386" folder on your hard drive or thumb drive.
  6. After the files are installed, you must restart your computer.

while installing xp sp3. Error message: file missing check i333


Are you sure i333 is not actually i386? The i386 folder contains all the files Windows uses to install XP. If you have XP installed already and it is asking for the i386 folder, it wants you to put the original Windows XP folder into your CD drive. If you are attempting to install Windows XP with SP3, there is something wrong with your CD. To avoid this problem in the past you can do this:

windows does not see full size of new Hard drive


Is your disk correctly partitioned?

  1. Right-click My Computer.
  2. Click Manage.
  3. Click Disk Management.
Find your newly installed disk and see if there is any unpartitioned space on it. If there is, just create a new partition, or delete the previous one so you can create the partition which will consume full size of the disk.

Insert the Windows 98 CD into the CD reader
Run smartdrv.exe from the Win98 directory on the windows 98 CD (file caching)
