Hi all.
Ive tried most of what i can think of, lots of os's, and stuff. I had another post, but i kept getting error messages. Anyway
what im trying to do is start any version on windows withought needing a physical disk.
I cannot boot from a CD Drive.
I cannot boot from USB.

So far i have the Floppy and drivers to sucessfully access a USB drive in dos.
I tried installing windows 95/98 (sucess) but when i ran them using the 'win' command, i got some errors saying 'Can't Find the registry Files.' Then a VFAT error.
So is there a way around such issues?

Or even a way to boot windows live (CD).
I can copy the files to the usb drive.

Anyway, see ya
Josh.

I believe there is a way to make your own Windows Live cd. Just search google for windows live cd and it should bring up some informative pages on how to make one. I think there is even software you can get that will make one for you too. not being mean or anything, I just think you'll get more info from one of the sites than me trying to explain it lol, ya know.

good luck
