I have windows xp and want to install pro edition. I use Alchohol 120% registered version to mount the image. It says i need to boot the cd from startup. IS there any way i can boot my cd from startup without burning it onto a cd?


No offense but please dont reply if you dont know the answer. Please do not reply if you have something else to say(even if it is about me) Finally yes i can afford a cd but thats not the point. I want the knowledge of being able to do it without the cd+ I have finals this week no time to go out at all.

No, you would have to burn it to the CD. The virual drive is only existant within Windows.
