so im using WinXP to format a drive full of crap and revive it.
the format goes great, but the install stops becuase of a bad joystick controller .sys file
after attempting a couple more times, the computer just boots up to a black screen saying "no operating system"
i go to microsoft website to download boot disks for the WinXP home edition, and the program keeps writing disk 5 of 6 as corrupt.
my next solution is to find somebody with a copy of Win98 diskettes and just load that to get it running, and after that do WinXP.
does anybody else think this is a good idea, or do you have a better idea?
