Chapter 3. Installing Windows XP Home > Making Replacement Startup Floppies

Making Replacement Startup Floppies

Windows XP setup can be launched from floppies, but you may not have received these floppies with the Windows XP distribution CD or they might be been lost or damaged. In any case, you can create new setup boot floppies right from the CD. You need to gather five preformatted blank floppies, and then follow these steps:

1.
Label the five floppies as Windows XP Setup Disk 1, …Setup Disk 2, and so on.

2.
Insert the first disk into the floppy disk drive, and insert the Windows XP CD into the CD-ROM drive.

3.
Choose Start, Run, and type the following:

d:\bootdisk\makeboot.exe

(Replace d with the letter of your CD-ROM drive.)

4.
Follow the onscreen directions.
