Post WINXP - WinXP Installation says Setup disc not detected.
So I boot from usb, get to the page where you press enter to install fresh copy, press r to repair and F3 to quit....

As I press enter to install a fresh copy it tells me that the setup disc is not found....

Windows Setup Disc is not detected please insert Windows NT, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows (all versions lower than xp) and press ok to continue.

[im not really sure how that even makes any sense.... shouldnt it be asking for a windows XP setup disc??? anyways the pc doesnt have cd drive to begin with]

=======================================================================

Anyone know how I can fix this? this is some dumb problem im sure but my internet search came to nothing...

I used my sister's Official Windows XP Home French disc and used wintoflash 0.7...... Did i forget to check something??? shes on a crappy notebook with no cd drive :O also shes using the "El terrible windows 7"

Thanks in advance for any reply/help i shall receive.


EDIT : *** SORRY FORGOT TO MENTION THAT MY MS-DOS BOOT THING FROM winnt.sif IS AND ALWAYS WAS AT "1" ***

Have you tried changing the drive letter on your USB drive? It's worth trying.

Sounds like you used a WinXP upgrade CD instead a full version to create your bootable usb drive.

I've had the same problem, but now I've been able solution. This happens usually when installing windows xp on a notebook or laptop.
how: Check the setup bios on the hard drive settings
select sata enablel / disable or the like.
check around it because every different bios menu.
hope that helps.
