Double click "My Computer" or click START > "My Computer"
2.Right click on A: drive with a floppy disk.
3.In the format options select the check box to make a boot disk.
4.And whaa laa! you have a very simple boot disk when you are finished.

your problem is windows xp isnt dos based so it it itsnt reading your h/d its not impossible to boot to dos in xp just the recovery console to run dos based progs open start menu,accessories then command promt and to switch dir use the cd command try good luck

Tried that didn&#39;t work same error

Well you know what my theory is that the win98 and the one that winXP makes (winXP makes a winME boot disk) don&#39;t recognize the NTFS file system that&#39;s probably why the say invalid drive specification cause they can only read FAT and FAT.

So probably I would need at least a windows 2000 boot disk

Sound striped o well it was a thought

Xp can not be run is DOS mode. You will need to boot up with a 3rd party DOS boot program. The only reason I can think that you cant access the C drive is maybe it is NTFS file format, which is like someone already mentioned, unreadable. I think it&#39;s time to give up. :(

Xan-II

Yeah I think your right It&#39;s time to give up :( and I mention that theory of the boot disk not reading the NTFS file system I might me right. :lol:
