Hello, Trying to install xp pro on a laptop. I have no cdrom and no floppy for the laptop. I do have a laptop to IDE adapter for the hard drive. Here is where I am... I boot a separate PC with a 98SE boot disk. I fdisk the drive. I then format the drive. I then type in sys c: from the a: prompt. I reboot with the SE boot disk. I then try to copy the i386 folder to the c: drive with "copy *.* c:\i386 " when in the r drive(mscdex makes my cdrom r drive). I then copy until I get to banana file then get kicked out. I have tried to do this with three different XP pro cd's. All look good, all give the same message about error from banana device. I think the error message is from CDrom. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
