Question Install Windows

I want to install windows XP via hard disk without bootable CD. Is there any way to do this. Actually my old Pentium-2 need reinstallation and it can't boot via CD only floopy drive can work or other method is connection Hard disk to other computer and install windows on hard disk. tell me how to do it? If it is possible.

Hmmm, I don't think there's an easy way to install from a HDD, unless you have a CD in the first place.

You might need to buy or borrow a CD-ROM drive to install it.

Check back for more answers though, someone else might know a way of doing it!

EDIT: Told ya so! \/ \/ \/

Don't ask questions, just click my rep tick. Now.

does your system not have a bootable cd drive?(is this what your saying?) you can boot from flopp and then put the cd in by using
