Maybe you don’t have a CD-ROM or DVD-ROM, or you don’t want to use one, or you are building a retro gaming PC and the onboard SATA controller is form VIA, and won’t boot from an optical SATA drive. Easy2Boot is free and lets you put your Windows XP ISO images onto a USB flash drive and install it from there. It also has a driver pack for storage controllers and is all-round a great tool.

  1. Hello there,
    Thank you very much for this tutorial, yet I am unable to install it.
    I am at 4:07 and when I press enter to install, my PC says that program cannot gain access to the disk containing the partition or free space of my choosing, so setup cannot instal windows.

    Any advice what to do please? 🙁

  2. Step one done successfully, but when computer restarted and i booted again from USB, i got a massage from my laptop says "Windows could not star because a disk hardware cnfg problem. Could not read from selected boot disk…etc" what to do 🤷🏼‍♂️

  3. Hi Phil.
    I did everything you said and it worked perfectly, but I can't get past the Volume License Product Key screen. I've tried keys from some websites which didn't work, but the key on my computer itself (it is an old hpxw4400 that was left without a HDD GPU and RAM) is apparently invalid. What can I do? Please help. I've been trying to get this PC working for months now

  4. Thanks, had a dell computer that just completely refused to boot from cd-rom or floppy, kept saying failure or boot device not available when the drives were tested working. Now I can finally use it.
