This File contains steps to create bootable disk in windows.

STARTUP DISK FOR WINDOWS XP Create a Windows startup disk when you first install Windows on the computer. This disk is different from an MS-DOS startup disk. Unlike MS-DOS, the whole Windows operating system cannot fit on one floppy disk. A Windows startup disk contains only the files that you must have to start the operating system with the remainder of the Windows system files installed on the hard disk drive. To create the startup disk, follow these steps: 1. Insert a blank floppy disk in drive A, and then format the disk by using Windows XP. 2. From the root folder of the system partition of your hard disk drive (for example, C:-), copy the following files to the floppy disk: Boot.ini NTLDR You may have to remove the hidden, system, and read-only attributes from the files. 3. Restore the hidden, system, and read-only attributes to the files on your hard disk if you removed these attributes. 4. If the Bootsect.dos file or the Ntbootdd.sys file resides in the system partition, repeat steps 2 through 4 to copy these files to the boot disk. If you format a floppy disk in Windows XP, the startup record points to the NTLDR file. When NTLDR runs, it loads the available operating system selections from the Boot.ini file. If you select Windows, NTLDR runs, and then passes control to Osloader.exe. If you select MS-DOS or OS/2, NTLDR loads Bootsect.dos.

BOOTABLE DISK FOR WINDOWS XP In this article we would create a window XP bootable disk from copied files. This is very useful when you have copied files of XP. To keep backup we generally copy the entire disk on hard disk. But you could not create a bootable disk from these files.

The following items are required: • A copy of the original Windows CD/DVD. • A copy of the Boot Files Download from here. • A minimum of 1GB available hard disk space for CD's. • A minimum of 5GB available hard disk space for DVD's.

Click on the Label tab. • IN ISO 9660 text field Enter volume lable • IN Joliet text boxes. Enter system identifier label

Click the Burn tab. • Check Write. • Check Finalize CD (No further writing possible!). • Set Write Method to Disc-at-once. (We have had Track-At-Once work as well.) Click the New button Locate the folder C:xpcd (OR where you have copied XP CD) Select everything from the folder and drag it to the ISO compilation panel.
