    Problem booting from XP CD!

    Hi ppl, first of all i know that this is not a forum that supports piracy what so ever, but i have a problem.

    My Liteonit Burner 52x24x52 supports CD Booting has my BIOS, i can for ex boot from a Linux Distro has Knoppix, but i cant with XP!

    I have 3 ISOS of it, two in Portuguese and other in English, they both work 100% has i sucessfully installed XP with those 3 CDs, but they dont boot from DOS, and i have to use the Boot Floppys.

    I made an experiment with Nero and choose make Bootable CD, put the files of XP and when it asked me for a disk floppy i put the first of the 6 floppys of XP, and them burned it.

    Them it worked, of course has i knew it would ask me for the rest of the floopys but the experiment was complete, now...i just need to make the CD bootable..but i dont know how..the folder i386 has all the floppy´s files, i dont understand..

    Can anyone help me?

    Hmm,

    1. Does the machine normally boot into Windows?
    2. You should not have to use boot floppies with XP..............it should boot from the CD if you have elected to do so in the boot sequence in your BIOS
    3. If you boot up, then install the floppy does it autostart it?
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    It should work on any OS if you use Nero 6.
