The floppy might be defective. It is asking you if you want to format the disk because it can't read it. Make sure that you keep anything magnetic away from the disk. It will corrupt the data.

Downloadable windowsxp boot disc winxp setup process


Windows XP Professional
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=55820EDB-5039-4955-BCB7-4FED408EA73F

or

Step 2: Run the Setup disk program to create the Setup disks

When you download the Setup disks, the download contains only one large program file. When you run the downloaded file, it extracts the files. You receive the following message:

This program creates the Setup boot disks for Windows XP. To create these disks, you need to provide 6 blank, formatted, high-density disks.

Please specify the floppy drive to copy the images to:

Type the drive letter for the floppy disk drive (this is typically drive A). After you type the floppy disk drive letter, you receive the following message:

Insert one of these disks into drive drive letter:. This disk will become the Windows XP Setup Boot Disk.

Press any key when you are ready.

When you press a key, the downloaded file starts to extract and copy the files. Continue to insert the blank disks as you are prompted to do this until all six disks are created. If the process is interrupted, you must run the downloaded program file again to create all six disks.

Make sure that you label each disk appropriately with the number that is specified by the program. You must use the disks in the correct order during the Setup process.

Step 3: Start your computer by using the first Setup disk to begin a new Windows XP installation

After you create all six disks, insert the first disk in the floppy disk drive, and then restart the computer. The computer must be configured to start from the floppy disk drive. You may have to modify the BIOS settings on your computer to do this.

The Setup process starts. Insert the other floppy disks when you are prompted. You must use the Windows XP CD-ROM to finish the Setup process.

hope it helps

I am trying to transfer photos and data from 3.5 disk to cd's and memory cards but when I insert a disk it is telling me that the disk is not formatted and ask me if I want to format now. I know these disk...


You can't retrieve data from those disks on whatever computer you're using it on. It apparently doesn't support the same format that you used save the data to the disks initially. I don't know what you can do, other than just trying the disks on any computer you can find that has a floppy disk drive until something works. Personally, I absolutely hate all the formats there are for removable disks. I have problems just like that with CDs all the time.
Well, good luck.

We want to install win Xp in Toshiba Satallite A205-S5825


Depending on the model of your Toshiba, it may have an unsupported hard disk controller which requires that you load a disk driver from a floppy disk by pressing F6 when prompted during the boot of an XP installation CD. If so, you will need to download the apropriate driver and put it on floppy diskette, Of course a floppy drive will also have to be available during the boot. (enable USB legacy support in BIOS if you use a USB floppy drive)

Alternatively, check your BIOS settings to see if the disk controller can be set to operate in ATA mode rather than AHCI mode. ATA mode should work with the XP cd-rom.

Problem with new install xp


First of all, was there a reason that you wanted to reinstall windows? If you were having problems with the operating system and now upon reload the hard disk is not appearing it could mean that the disk or the system board itself is bad.

If you pull the XP disk out and just try to boot your computer up are you able to login and use your computer from the previous/original install of XP?

If so, then perhaps you're using a special hard drive controller that supports RAID. If you have a RAID controller you'll need to load the drivers of that controller on a Floppy disk. During the initial startup of the XP install it will give you the opportunity to click the F6 button on the keyboard to load additional device drivers. You want to click F6 when it prompts you at the bottom of the screen and wait for it to prompt you to put your floppy disk (with the RAID controller drivers) in the floppy drive.

Hope this helps. If you need more help just let me know.

If u try to install server console so follow the instruction:

Go to the server console; or Rconsole if you're remote; from the prompt type in load install. Then arrow down to license options; put the floppy in and hit enter. It will find it from there.
If you are remote, copy the server.mls file from the floppy up to the server's sys:system. Then after you've selected license options; hit f3 and type sys:system; enter. to verify the license were added go back to the console prompt and type in versions. Have a good one. :)
