The hard drive crashed on my old Dell Latitude D600 and I installed a new one. I burned a copy of Windows XP (an ISO file) onto a CD, but when I start up now it says:

Starting Caldera DR-DOS

and ends with ...

No NTFS volumes found, exiting ...
[DR-DOS] A:\>

Can anyone tell me ... in layman's terms please :)  .. where I go from here?

Hi

To burn a ISO to a cd or DVD you need a recent operating system
Can't remember if vista does this but win 7 does
ahead Nero can burn ISO to cd
Imgburn is easy to use v2.5.7 (be aware v2.5.8 installer puts adware on your PC)


Did you try to create a bootable cd with ISO visible as a file on cd
With a caldera dr-dos boot sector

Real Microsoft windows does not use caldera dr-dos files
