winxp cd

Recommended Posts

Hi, today when i got home from school, i found my computer stuck on an error message... "Lssass.exe blah blah bad image" So i rebooted it 2 or 3 times, on the 3rd time i left it on and called my brother asking him to bring home a windows xp cd. He couldn't because he didn't have time. What i want to know is how can i create/burn a Windows XP CD, i have the files for it, from my friend's cd(he lives far away i dont have his cd anymore) but i dont know how to make it bootable. I tryed to make it a CD-Rom(ISO) in Nero, from what some other person told me but it didn't work. Also know that im not pirating windows, i have my own serial key that i purchased, i just lost my windows cd.

Thank you.

I do not have any idea or I dont think you can make a cd from files only. I think you are going to need a copy of the windows disc. As far as making a bootable cd from a preinstalled system try this

a good idea is to keep your windows CD in your PC. I was thinking to have one of those paper CD cover things glued somewhere inside the side panel where noone can see it but its there.

Definatly a great idea to keep a spare WITH the system. :D However I just have 20+ copys of my version with SP2 slipstreamed (SP0 Orig. CD) floatign around my house/LoArmistead's house/other ppls houses. Around here I ususaly pick up a random pile of CDs and usually find one :lol:

Another thing I believe you can do is to create a bootable floppy and then boot to that. Then, through the command prompt, you can tell it to run the xp setup.
