Hello,

I need to have a problem solved. Ok, so I try to install XP in dos, doesn't work. So I go to E:I386\winnt.exe, and I go through the stuff, restart the computer. Now the error is after I restart my computer, it says that EULA cannot be found. Any ideas?

might be a bad disk- try another disk but make sure its the same type (upgrade, oem...etc) that you have or your cd-key wont work

Howdy:

Legit XP cd's are self-booting.. all you need to do is make sure the first boot device in BIOS (Setup) is set for the cd-rom!!

Why are you trying to do this through DOS??

What are your BIOS options??

How old id that system as it would be the first one I have ever seen that did not have an option to boot to the cd first!!

What BIOS??

What are your BIOS options when you get into BIOS and look for the Boot setup??

It CANNOT only show floppy as that would mean you ALWAYS need a floppy to start your system..

As I see it, you are being a tad evasive here.. Almost makes one think you are trying to install a copied/pirated version of XP !!
