Running Xp Setup From Dos?

  1. I have been given this to try. Does it make sense to anyone?

    To run Setup from MS-DOS, you can run Winnt.exe from the I386 folder on the Windows XP CD-ROM. Type drive:\i386\winnt.exe, where drive is your CD-ROM drive, to start Setup.

    True? :confused:

    Please do NOT start a new thread for every question you have!
    You have now THREE threads, all about you trying to format/reinstall your PC.
    One is enough!

    Yes, you could install that way, provided you can boot AND have access to your CD.
