Rescue floppy for XP
Posted on 2003-11-07
I have read how to create a rescue floppy for XP, but it relies on the existence of the OS on the hard disk. i.e. it is just incase the boot files are corrupted.
I have the following problem.
I keep a copy of the installation on the hard disk.
I would like to be able (when in trouble) to boot from a floppy and then run the installation and install the OS from scratch.
With W98 this was no problem - you could run the Setup.exe from the DOS you reached with the rescue floppy.
I tested this with XP, and you cannot run the Setup.exe from the DOS prompt - you have to be in Windows.
How do I do it?
