When exactly do you get this error?

Have you used this ISO file before so you know it is good?

Have you used just the XP files before so you know they work?

Were they extracted from CD that was used successfully before?

Where did they come from, have they been used successfully by you, and in what form?

Please answer each^

I don't know. My friend had the CD, and he lent me it to copy it. That's all as far as I know. Thats was years ago as well.

This is the error:

When do you get the error?

It is normally given when attempting to boot into XP with SP2 conflict.

The last I heard you were still making bootable flash stick

can you boot into Windows 7 now?

? Your confusing me. I am in Windows 7. >.>

When I try to install Windows XP, that error, which I gave the screenshot, appears.

It says the INF file txtsetup.sif is missing or corrupted. Setup is discontinued/closed.

Press any key to exit, and the laptop restarts.

You showed me how to make it bootable with UltraISO or whatever. I already have rebooted, booted up the flash drive, but I still can't install XP because of the error shown above.

And what does this have to do with Windows 7 booting problems?

Google the error as I am doing.

I was waiting to hear if you got the ISO installed to flash stick when you report this error. Nothing was said about trying to boot into flash yet. That's the confusion.

Did you format the flash first? Can you run the chkdsk on it as given several posts above?

Try formatting the stick FAT32 in Disk Management, then rewrite the ISO to it/

I format it to Fat 32? That may be the problem, I have it formatted to NTFS.

Might not be compatible to XP. Right click on flash in Computer and FAT32 long format.

Then rewrite ISO using UltraISO, without formatting. Check verify box.

I got no report on how the Ultra ISO steps went.

Rightclick on flash in Computer, select format, FAT32, uncheck quick format.

Rewrite ISO using Ultra ISO without formatting, but check Verify box

Wait wait wait... do you mean to format the flash drive or the partition I'm planning to install XP to FAT32?

Then I write ISO with UltraISO without click the format button there with of course, Verify box checked.

And my report on how the steps of UltraISO was a success.

Security scanning - Multi-OS / Dual-boot?
Curious to know if AV/Malware scanning for both primary partitions can be fully performed when the scanning software is installed onto just one or is it 100% thorough only for the active partition? Would like to keep one bootable active partition as lean as possible...if possible.
