XP INSTALL PROBS! HELP! - 04-21-2009, 01:10 AM
Hey everyone I am new to the mini I have the 4gb with linux and am updating it to XP PRO. I have done lots of research here and have done the following:
Using a 2gb flash drive I put XP PRo on it using these instructions http://redirectingat.com/?id=258X408&ur ... -disk.html
I tried to install and it was giving me error codes saying there was missing files. I found the missing files and started copying them. I then moved forward with the install and now it says "setup cannot find a cd-rom drive" and it can't continue hit F3 to exit.
How do i get around this so I can format and install. I'm going crazy here been working on it for too long. I am by no means an expert here but don't know what is wrong. In the bios I have set to boot on the usb flash drive and have the non-execute memory protection disabled as I heard when it is enabled it can cause errors. I have read people doing this same method without problems so what am I doing wrong, please help!
