You don't. It requires the rest of the setup files to install XP. i386 folders are placed locally for probable use, like when making changes to Add / Remove Windows programs.

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:

Try cleaning the CD with dish soap and water, u may have a dirty disk, be careful (don't scratch it). Try using a different XP install disk from someone you know, just use your product key instead of theirs when it asks for it. Your install disk is failing.

Trying to install HP c4280 printer to Dell OPTIPLEX GX620 computer w/ XP PRO. Asking for sRCB.ICM from XP CD ROM Can not locate the sRGB file. Suggestions???


The file might be located on the Dell system disk.
You can also look in c:\windows\system, c:\windows\inf, c:\windows\system32, or in the I386 directory which may be directly under c:\windows
I checked some sources and saw this problem listed only twice--once for Win98.
The name of the file you are looking for is probably SRGB..ICM. I found it on my Win XP system here: C:\windows\Driver Cache\I386\driver.cab

Ntldr error on ibm intellistation z pro w/ xp pro


During the XP install, you will be given the chance to set up partitions on the drive. Blow them all out. Completely. Then recreate the partition and let XP install. I expect this will solve the nt loader issue. If, however, it does not, then use the recovery approach below to get the required loader files onto your boot partition.

  1. Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.
  2. When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
  3. Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
  4. Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
  5. You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
  6. Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter, which in this case is "d." This letter may be different on your computer.

    copy d:\i386\ntldr c:\
    copy d:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\

  7. Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.

HOW TO ACTIVATE XP PRO USING A COPY OF XP PRO?


If it is a copy, and not genuine, it won't work. It is impossible to make an exact copy of Microsoft product CDs. They detect it. Also, if you do install it, you cannot use it without any limitations. 
So be legal and search for an old XP CD. It is out of sale now, until stocks last, but it went out 6 months ago.
You can buy and install the superb new Vista or even buy and download it safely from the Microsoft website.

Install Xp From Dos


If XP will not install from the CD or if you have a new drive with no operating system onit yet try these:

Install Windows XP from the hard drive with Windows 98 already installed:

Boot Windows 98
Insert the XP CD into your CD reader
Explore Windows XP through My Computer
Copy i386 folder to C:\
Go into C:\i386 folder and double click on winnt32.exe to launch the setup from the hard drive

Install Windows XP from DOS (ie. no OS on a new hard drive):

Boot with a Windows 98 Start Up disk
Insert the Windows 98 CD into the CD reader
Run smartdrv.exe from the Win98 directory on the windows 98 CD (file caching)
Type cd.. to back up to the root directory
Insert Windows XP CD into the CD reader
Copy the i386 folder to C:\
Go into C:\i386 folder on C: and type winnt.exe to launch the setup from the hard drive.
