I'm upgrading my motherboard and I know that I will have to re-install XP which will require a boot disk to make sure my CD-ROM is recognized, but the problem is I don't even have a floppy drive hooked up to my computer, so I can't have a boot disc. I've heard that if the CD-ROM drive is bootable then I can just forget the boot disc and go straight to installing XP. Any help on how I can find this?
I have a boot menu that lets me select what drive I can boot from, one is the cd-rom drive, one is the harddrive and I don't know what the other one is. I don't have the actual Windows XP disc right now, I just have the CD to re-install.
