Default How do I get into the Blue Windows XP Installation screen if I don't have a floppy dr

Hi.

How do I get into the Blue Windows XP Installation screen if I don't have a floppy drive?

If I have windows installed, and put in the bootable cd... it says press any key to boot from cd... , so i do, and then it just loads up my normal windows

I want to go into the Setup and Delete the Partition

I want to do a New Install.

Will this work... if I download "Ultimate Boot CD" http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/

And then once it boots up, I put in my Windows XP cd.

Then I can type maybe : DIR, or CD .. ?
and then SETUP

Or does anyone know a DOS Bootup Disk on CD-R?

Or maybe I can use one of its MS DOS boot disks that Ultimate Boot CD has on it?

Which one is good?
DOS Boot Disks
FreeDOS Boot Disk 3.25
NwDsk: NetWare Boot Disk 3.25
Madboot Floppy 8.0
MSRRC: Bart's Network Boot Disk on FreeDOS

What would be the steps?

1.) Insert Ultimate Boot Cd and boot
2.) Run one of those Dos boot disks
3.) INsert my Windows XP cdrom into CD drive
4.) Say in the Dos prompt: cd D: ... dir ... setup
5.) Install Windows XP
??????? is that right????
