Win XP Pro Bootup Disk

Discussion in 'Windows XP' started by AAH, Aug 6, 2010.

    I have downloaded a file
    WinXP_EN_PRO_BF.EXE
    Windows XP Pro Startup Disk 310994

    This file prepared 6 floppy disks to startup to setup
    Win XP Pro SP3. Thèse disks 2-6 appears to contain the
    compressed file.
    My question is
    1. Is it safe to use disk #1 just to bootup the
    computer? It would not interfere with the
    current setup?
    2. Are the disks 2-6 good enough to evive the
    system, if not, what other folder and files
    needed on the hd?
    I am sorry I have no experience of XP setup.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    What exactly are you trying to do? Install Windows XP? If so then you do not
    need any floppy disks. Just set your BIOS so that it uses the CD drive as
    its primary boot device, then boot off your WinXP installation CD and
    responds to the prompts.
