Hello,
My toshiba laptop (windows xp home edition) has failed to boot. I don't have the installation CD to perform repair. It cannot even start in safe mode.

Is it possible to create a bootable SD Card (windows xp)?

Kindly assist me in any way.

Yes, but you need to put a Windows CD or OS on the bootable media.

Do an internet search for recovery options for your Laptop model. Restore to factory settings is one option, but you lose everything ! Creating a boot rescue disk like Linux is another option. Hard drive, memory, corrupted OS are common causes. If you can, remove memory sticks, then boot with one, then the other might get you going.

You can get a restore disk from toshiba, won't cost too much, I think around $30. If you have a valid copy of XP you can use, you can create a boot disk off that, or even if you know someone with a Toshiba OEM XP disk, you can borrow that and use your XP code form the laptop to install it.
