Windows XP Pro Startup Disk 310994

The Windows XP startup disk allows computers without a bootable CD-ROM to perform a new installation of the operating system
Users who are running Windows might occasionally need to reinstall their operating system because of software crashes or malware infections. This can typically be achieved by inserting the Windows CD and following the on-screen instructions.

However, when users are running Windows XP and they do not have a CD-ROM, they can try Windows XP Pro Startup Disk to restore their OS to its initial state.

This application can be easily downloaded then run onto the host computer, and it helps users create bootable floppy disks for installing their OS. It needs to be mentioned that six blank formatted diskettes are required for transferring the needed information.

Once they are created, these disks load the correct drives for Windows XP Service Pack 2, the Professional edition, so that users can enjoy their operating system again with as little effort as possible.

One needs to be aware that this package cannot be used to reinstall Windows XP Home or other editions than the Professional one. In addition, this application cannot be used to upgrade a version of XP to the Professional one.

Briefly put, this software solution can help users overcome the fact that they do not have a CD-ROM and create floppy disks that can be later used to reinstall the operating system.
