Right, here's my dilemma.
I have a laptop HDD that Im trying to get XP installed onto. I have all the XP files as an .iso on my main PC, which I can open and extract, BUT, I cant actually get XP to install on the second drive.
The problem here is that I cant make the second drive bootable - I need to get some kind of boot command onto the drive so that I can run the install sequence from there. This SHOULD be easy, BUT
a) I dont have a floppy drive, so I cant make a boot floppy
b) I dont have the original XP CD (thats at my house in the UK, 1000 miles away)
c) I dont have a CD-R drive to make a bootable CD.
So how the hell do I get XP installed onto this little drive? I know I can copy NTLDR onto the drive and use a boot.ini, but then the drive needs XP already installed...
