Default ASR with No Floppy

Oh come on!! Who made you bloody "internet police" ?!

The fact that the post is still carried by the group and internet search
engines means that the posted question *will* keep being viewed by many.

If only part of the thread is still viewable, by answering it, those people
searching on the topic mentioned, may get some benefit out of a decent
reply - no matter if it is two, three or five years old!!

The only issue should always be : "is the advice given was factual and
relevant?" ...

Do you really think the OP is coming back to look for your reply from the
post made in 2007? What a trip you must be on!

Default ASR with No Floppy


Thanks for this thread.

I am running XP on my Macbook Pro -- which the hard drive is dying.

So, I am trying to figure out how to be doubly sure I do not lose my
Windows data to have to re-install every freaking program.

I am running the XP with Bootcamp and Parallels.

I am hoping Winclone will work. But, the be safe I did the XP Back-up
Utility and then found out at the end that I needed a floppy.

Are you saying that if I have to do a fresh install of XP (if Winclone
fails) then I can install XP and then Restore with the XP Back-up
Utility AND I DO NOT NEED A FLOPPY?

Thanks for the help...

PT

1. So long as your hardware (BIOS) pemits you to boot
from a CD drive, you can perform INSTAL or RESTORE
without a floppy. (When booting a PC with no Operating
System installed, it does not matter from which drive the
OS comes, so long as it can be enabled.)

2. We would expect a backup routine that includes writing
anything to a floppy is NOT configured to prepare a bootable CD.
