  1. At the bottom of menu.lst or winsetup.lst (I can't remember) change the line that reads root (hd0,F:) to root (hd0,0) or even better find --set-root /winsetup.lst. This should solve your problem. Edit: Here's some files for you. txtsetup.sif (for ISO), setup.cmd, menu.lst and winsetup.lst I replaced root (hd0,F:) with root (hd0,0) in menu.lst. Now wasn't errors. I selected first installation part. But it wants to install OS to my HDD. He asked do I want repair or reinstall my C: disk OS. Now was not possible select on which partition I want install.
  2. I think that problem is not with Dell winXP CD. Before I wrote here first time I tested USB install with original Microsoft XP Pro CD also. Issue was same.
  3. I tested now with beeta. With beeta: I formated my USB with RMPrepUSB. This make USB two partitions: first is NTFS main parttions and second is unactive unknown with capacity 0MB. After boot I got error message: root (hd0,F:) Error 11: urecognized device string, or you omitted the required device part which should lead the filename. I attach log. With 0_2_3: I formatted with RMPrepUSB NTFS format. This make USB two partitions: first is NTFS 3.8GB parttions and second is unactive unknown with capacity 0MB. I deleted both partitions but RMPrepUSB make two partitions. I tried to install on USB 3.8GB partition not 0B partition. In my computer is winXP pro. WinSetupFromUSB.zip WINNT.SIF TXTSETUP.zip
  4. It didn't help. Now I installed WinSetupFromUSB to default place (with 8.3 filename). I made new USB and start first boot but error is same. My USB filesystem is NTFS. I attach new log file. WinSetupFromUSB.zip
  5. Thanks! Now I attached true log file. Other description is true. Installation is ending with error message: "Setup cannot create the folder \windows" and "Setup cannot continue until the folder is created". WinSetupFromUSB.zip
  6. I want to install Windows XP pro to USB stick with WinSetupFromUSB_0-2-3.exe. I formatted 4GB Kingston USB stick with NTFS. All WinSetupFromUSB_0-2-3.exe options for make USB stick was default. Installation files copied to USB from win xp installation CD for this computer. Next I started first boot from USB. After I had selected correct partition to install XP and I pressed enter, then I got error message: "Setup cannot create the folder \windows". Computer is Dell Latitude D610.
