Default Re: PC boot failure

from the looks of things and what you said...that's not a legit windows xp install

of course, you may know that and are just wondering what the issue is of your non-legit XP install...on that, I could not say.

FreeDOS - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

if you did not know it was not legitimate....well now you do.
