  1. Trying using fbinst right now... However saw this in boot-land : "However, ZIP disk would be (fd0) at boot time, and the data partition is (fd0,0), some application can't handle this properly. To solve this, you can use grub4dos's map command to map (fd0) to (hd0)." Have you heard of this? if yes any idea how to map fd0 to hd0? The only info i can get on the motherboard at the moment is this :
  2. Thanks jaclaz, attached is the MBR_HardDisk1.dat file Took the first sector of physicaldrive of the usb key... Here is a screen of my bios: MBR_HardDisk1.zip
  3. Thanks ilko, i think that was the problem My bios does have USB HDD but my usb stick only shows under USB KEY which i guess is a floppy... Pretty weird since my other usb key with ubuntu boots up fine. Both keys are 2Gigs. You think the " Install XP from a RAM loaded ISO image " method might work in this case? or maybe " Install XP from USB AFTER Booting with PE from HDD or USB "?
  4. All files are where they are supposed to be. the cat (fd0)/menu.lst prints the menu.lst file all other commands give me "Error 15: File not found" Thanks for the fast reply btw
  5. Hi! First off thanks to everyone for their support. I have a Fujitsu Simens laptop but my disk CD drive is broken. Have tried to boot from my XP CD from an external disk drive but i get the NTDETECT failed error. So installing from a USB key is my last resort (although i will try the ram method) I have used the latest version of WinSetupFromUSB. I have XP MCE SP3. I have attached the log file. However when I reboot, i only get a GRUB4DOS commandline. (booting works fine) I went back and edited the first boot command to put errorcheck on and this is what i get : configfile /menu.lst Error 11 : Unrecognised device string, or you omitted the required DEVICE part which should lead the filename. I opened a commandline and entered the following: >> root (hd0,0) filesystem is NTFS, partition type 0x07 >> configfile /menu.lst Error 15: File not found Anyone have any tips? Here is my WinSetupFromUSB.log : 2009/11/12 19:17:14- WinSetupFromUSB 0.2.3 started 2009/11/12 19:17:14- OS: WIN_XP Architecture type: X86 ServicePack: Service Pack 3 OS Language: 0409 2009/11/12
