    A convo, with a person on KaZaA follows.


    Yes. But U have to make a bootable CD. Its not the same as just burning a CD. There is a way to arrange the sector so that the PC looks for the boot INI
    --------
    KXM@KaZaA:
    So burn & boot?
    --------
    ***@KaZaA:
    If U run the exe file as it is it will not do a clean install and U wont get the best performance
    --------
    KXM@KaZaA:
    Do you mean burn it to CD, than boot from the CD? Or run the EXE file?
    --------
    ***@KaZaA:
    But its not a bootable version. SO U will have to make it one





    [/b] Now, I know how to Burn an ISO. And, I know how to Boot from a CD.

    However, this INI stuff?

    Any know what he means?[/b]

    BTW, the file is:
    Win XP corp Final.

    THNX,
    KXM

    Sounds like the exe file is a self-extracting file???
    Run the exe and see if it unpacks the files and let us know the files and file types.
    It may either extract into an iso or bin....or it may just be an exact copy of the installation disk.
    If it is a copy of the disk, then you can just burn those files to a cd and it should be bootable.

    I ran the file, and it just did that thing where it poped up a MS-DOS window, for a sec.

    The part I don't get is this:

    There is a way to arrange the sector so that the PC looks for the boot INI
    Eh? Does he mean, I need to know how to boot from a disk? That part is easy... but what's all this about an' INI? The file it self is an' EXE. Will Windows boot from a single EXE burned to a disk? Do I need to convert it? Is it like an' ISO? I know NERO didn't reconize it, as anythig other than an' EXE.

    Even the slightest amout of help, would be GREATLY appreched.

    THNX, in advance...
