I have done this procedure a few times on multiple computers including my own, its always gone smoothly and quickly. However, after approx 3-5 hours of solid work with this one, nothing seems to do the trick. I have gotten close on a few occasions, but something ALWAYS goes wrong just at the end.
So, in a bid of hope I ask the people here if anyone out there, has/knows someone who has/can obtain a CD( or copy of?.. ) Windows XP Professional.
They have the CD key, it works, thats been verified already. I dont need another, and I wont buy another either.
Some details here I suppose
I am in New York, USA. So if you live somewhere like japan expect shipping to take a while..
The CD key works, thats established.
You can send me the CD any way you want, and Ill send it back VIA a local post office. ( hell, ill probably stuff in $5 for the trouble and as thanks )
The computer they are using was bought with Windows XP Professional Service Pack 1 ( WINXPPRO SP 1)
They do have a functional I386 file, however its 860 megs so it cannot fit on a CD.
There computer does not seem willing to burn a dvd..... >.>
Quick edit: Forgot to mention they have a regular CD/DVD drive and an A: Floppy disk drive. So you can send floppys too.. although admittedly I hate the things.
I have used every guide out there for this damned thing, and have done the procedure ( as mentioned above ) multiple times easily. This computer alone has ever given me trouble. So dont really expect to link me a guide and be done with it. ( I know how to use google too )
Anyway, all the details are here. If anyone wants to try to pitch in with advice/knowledge/A CD, feel free to.
Just respond to this thread mentioning you have what I need, and we can work it out from there. I will probably establish a phone call before giving you a shipping adress to a nearby store or something.
Thanks ahead of time.
P.S. Im still going to try working on this thing. So if no one comes up with a cd within a certain amount of time this issue could be resolved already.
