|To make an xp copy bootable.|
First make an ISO then burn the it.
Just doing a copy does not always copy the hidden files on the cd,....but making an ISO will get all the files.
So now you will need to reinstall using a 98se bootdisk with smartdrive,,,,,,google ...it is out there. cd to the X drive a:\ x: enter then cd to i386 then winnt.exe.
When you have the time slipstream a new cd and but the boot files on it.
