Insert the floppy disk into the drive and invoke the main menu by pressing the "start" button. Go to the Run dialog and type cmd in the Open box. Confirm execute the command line utility by clicking the OK button, and enter format a: in the text box, the command interpreter Windows. Confirm format the disk by pressing the function key Enter and wait until the process is complete.
Click "All programs" in the main menu "start" and open the link "the Standard" Start "Windows Explorer" and open carried system drive (usually C: drive). Navigate to the folder that is named i386, and create copies of the files Ntldr and Ntdetect.com. Move the created copy to a floppy disk.
Create a copy of the Boot.ini and edit it to make changes to the system configuration. Please note that when the computer boots from a SCSI hard disk, the option multi in the [operating systems] section should be changed to scsi. In this case, you must create a copy of a driver of SCSI controller in the root folder of the created boot floppy and change the name to Ntbootdd.sys. The disk parameter must be set to the ID of the SCSI drive, for download.
When you create a boot floppy on the computer not running Windows version XP, you must change the name of the Ntldr file to Setupldr.bin. Further steps are completely similar to that described above.
Be careful when editing the Boot file.ini. Error when defining path to system files or the inclusion of the name of Tom will result in error messages and the inability to correctly boot the OS. Another reason for the appearance of such messages may be the lack of the file Ntbootdd.sys or the wrong choice of SCSI driver.
