    Well !

    You need to copy the DISC

    You need the Xp CD and you copy directly from the CD to an image file.

    You cannot do it from a Windows folder (with the CD contents copied to it)

    Windows CD Required

    Also, please write clearly.

    If you want the CD to boot

    You need the Xp CD to make an exact copy

    Please get an Xp CD to continue
