ReInstall Windows XP


How can I reinstall Windows XP when my laptop won't start anymore windows on harddisk (original) or form a fresh CD with the windows XP.iso on it.

I can only start my laptop from Knoppix and thats it.

How can I clean up my laptop so that I can do a format of my harddisk  or a reinstall from the CD.
I also have an image of my harddisk. So how can I put that image back on a proper harddisk?

At the end I needed to start from scratch with that image.
It was a virus that I couldn't clean (because I couldn't start up).
After a long search we put the imaage back,.

Thanks for your help

If your computer starts with Knoppix then there's a problem with your XP CD
Have you created a bootable CD from the .iso?

Hi Masqueraid,

Yes itbis the same problem as in q_25012510. But now I know that the laptop can start with knoppix.

Hi Senad,

It is and ISO burned on CD special burn for ISO-files. I tested the CD on another computer and it worked (my very first thought was the same (that I did something wrong when burning is), so I already tested the CD)
