F6 hard coded in XP setup.exe issue.
I do have a slipstream for all , nlite and vlite.
but it is a pain, having to do that for every system I maintain. Max PAIN.
I wonder if someone has not designed a Floppy emulator hardware device the plugs into the floppy port.
this device would translate a xd flash or thumb flash to the floppy controller.
one could keep device in a service kit an would never have to see Bad sector reads, for the rest of ones life.
I get a lot of Vista down grades, so I am busy.
that setup.exe is hard coded to use the floppy port, even when the MB bios has the floppy disabled.
dirty little THING, it is. and only loads, "mass storage" drivers.
I too have may USB flash sticks that boot to usb-fdd and usb-hdd. but that is no solution.
any one see a hardware solution?
cheers to one and all.
btw this guy posting said , he has no FDD port,
