To create bootable disk follow the steps: 1)Enter floppy disk or cd in your dvd/cd drive. 2)You can create boot disk by using Nero CD Burning software or other software with which you burn your cd or dvd. 3) to create with windows xp go to http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=FBE5E4FC-695F-43E5-AF05-719F45C382A4 Or carry out the following steps: Using Windows XP, place a blank floppy in drive A and format the disk. Navigate to the root folder of the system (in most cases this will be C:\) and copy the following files to the floppy disk. Boot.ini NTLDR Ntdetect.com If you can't see the files, click [Tools] and [Folder Options...] in the Menu Bar of Windows Explorer. Click the [View] tab and click the radio button next to [Show Hidden Files and Folders]. Remove the check mark next to [Hide Protected Operating System Files (Recommended)] then click [Apply] and [OK]. The files should now be visible in Windows Explorer. If the files still cannot be copied, right click each file, click [Properties] and remove the checkmark from the Read-Only attributes. Reset whatever attributes were unchecked after the copy procedure is completed. In addition to the files listed above, check the same directory for bootsect.dos and ntbootdd.sys files. If they are present on your system, copy them to the same floppy diskette. The disk is used as any other boot disk, inserting it into the floppy drive (A:\) and initiating a cold boot. Make sure the BIOS is set so that the A:\ drive is first in the boot sequence.

How To Make Vista Bootable DVD with WIM Downloaded Files
you have purchased Windows Vista online and taken the delivery of the
latest operating system via web download from Windows Marketplace, you
would ends up with a few downloads with .wim and .exe file extensions.
Rather than paying additional shipping and handling charges, you can
burn or create a bootable ISO DVD image from downloaded Vista files
with the following trick, where the .iso image can subsequently write
to a DVD. The DVD created will be the typical 32-bit Windows Vista DVD
that available in retail channel, and can be used to clean install.
How to make a bootable Windows Vista ISO DVD media
1. Put all 3 downloaded files (namely install.wim, boot.wim and an executable X13-49120.exe) in the same folder (for this tutorial, let’s assume the files are put on C:\ else you need to modify the path accordingly).
2. Run the X13-49120.exe executable. Windows Vista Setup Preparation will create a new folder “Vista” inside the folder and will populate the folder with all necessary Vista setup files which takes up about 2.52 GB disk space.
3. Exit from the Install Windows screen.
4. Download CDimage 2.52
5. Extract CDimage from CDimage.zip to the C:\ root directory.
6. Open a command prompt shell, and run the following command:
cdimage.exe -lVISTA_EN_DVD -m -u2 -bC:\Vista\boot\etfsboot.com C:\Vista\ C:\Vistax86.iso
Bootable Windows Vista x86 DVD ISO image in UDF format will be created as vistax86.iso in C:\ or any folder you specified above.
7. Burn the newly create ISO with a CD/DVD burning software such as Nero or Alcohol 120%. Try to burn at low speed (i.e. 4X) and turn on verification to ensure that the DVD creation is fine.
Create a Windows Vista ISO image and DVD with Oscdimg
Another possible way to create a bootable Vista ISO and DVD is by using Oscdimg CD-ROM and DVD-ROM Premastering Utility, available via WinPE (Windows Preinstallation Environment) via Business Desktop Deployment 2007 or Windows Automated Installation Kit (AIK)
1. Complete step 1 - 3 as above.
2. In the command prompt window, run the following command:
oscdimg -bC:\Vista\boot\etfsboot.com -h -u2 -m -lVISTA_EN_DVD C:\Vista\ C:\VistaDVD.iso
A VistaDVD.iso UDF DVD image will be created and can be used to boot the computer from DVD to install Vista.
3. Burn the ISO image file by using last step above.

My understanding of this problem is as follows: When you put the Windows XP CD into the drive and switch on the computer Windows starts from the CD. In order to access the CD it uses the BIOS. However, at a certain point it decides to use its own drivers instead of using the BIOS. Oops! it doesn't have the right driver because your CD drive is too new, so it can't read the CD, and thus can't continue the install. The solution then is to copy all the necessary files onto a place where Windows can read the files. Solution 1 Do you have another computer? Take the hard drive out of the machine you are installing and put it into the second machine as a secondary hard drive. Switch on the second machine and copy the i386 directory and all its files and subdirectories from the Windows install CD on to the secondary hard drive. Remove the hard drive and put it back into the machine you are installing and switch it on. When Windows then asks for the missing file you can direct it to the I386 directory on the hard drive. This should be C:\I386. It will ask for the location of about 10 files. Give the same answer each time. Solution 2 You will need a bootable CD such as Hiren's boot CD, and a second CD drive. Put Hiren's into the primary CD drive. Put the Windows CD into the second CD drive. Switch on, and choose the mini XP Copy the I386 directory and all its sub-directories onto the hard drive. Again, when Windows asks for the location of the files direct it to the appropriate directory on the hard drive.

Tips for a great answer:
Restart your computer during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the delete or F2 key
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system
note after you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to failsafe or optimised defaults
after windows has loaded
your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation
the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd
if your installation disk is only a service pack 1 or 2 you might need to create an xp sp3 disk
if you have a copy of windows service pack there is a program that allows you add service pack 3 to it so you have a copy of xp sp3
hope this helps
