Question: How can I create a Windows XP boot floppy?
The IT Guy says:
If you have a functional CD-ROM drive on your computer, you are better off booting from the Windows XP CD and then running system tests or reinstalling the operating system from there.
Microsoft has a downloadable file that will create Windows XP boot disks available on â€œWindows XP Professional Utility: Setup Disks for Floppy Boot Installâ€. After downloading the file and saving it to a convenient place on another computerâ€™s hard drive (like the desktop), double click the executable (.exe) file and follow the instructions to install and use the program. For best results use new, clean floppy disks rather than old floppies that have previously contained other data.
