Hi today i rebooted my pc and deleted the partion on my hard drive so I could install a genuine widows xp copy I got the xp disc from a second fujitsu sienens pc in the house i installed windows and resarted my pc. When it came to a black screen with boot to windows xp home or setup windows I went to setup windows and it started copying files to the hdd after a few seconds it said fcannot find dile iaStor.sys

Sorry, thats too involved. Click and download tha IAA package, extract the files to a floppy disk, when you start your PC and boot from the XP CD, hit F6 when you see the prompt (Hit F6 to load drivers) - put the floppy in and the setup program will get the iastor.sys from there.

Unfortunatly I dont have a floppy drive is there any other storage I can use?

It's longwinded compared to sticking a single disk in but you can create a custom XP CD using Nlite - click here

Ignore all the optional stuff, just add the folder containing the drivers at the appropriate point in Nlite configuration.

Do I just need to boot the pc from the disc and reinstall windows?

After installing Nlite and creating a new XP disc.

Burn the resulting modified XP .iso file to a CD (ImgBurn is good; click here)and it will work exactly the same way as your original XP CD.

Recommend a CDRW in case you need more than one attempt.
