uvioc replied to ilko_t's topic in Install Windows from USBHi, great programme. Trying to install XP on a Samsung NC10 which has an existing install but has recently caught a pretty terminal virus (Win32/VBS Ramnit). Following this guide and using version v0.2.3 I think I successfully made a bootable USB, and all was going well until during the normal blue XP setup screens, I received this message: 'No previous version of Windows NT could be found on your computer. Setup is unable to verify that you qualify to use this upgrade product. Press F3 to exit.' I can only assume that this is due to the fact that the XP Home disc used to make the USB is an upgrade (genuine). But I have never had this issue before in the dozens of times I've used it. Is there any way around this? This is really frustrating - I have the genuine disc and key but am unable to install! Until I can sort it my NC10 is kaput. Any advice appreciated.
