Read GPT hard disk on Windows XP

Recommended Posts

I have seen for a long time that it is possible install WindowsServer2003-KB919117 update on Windows xp to read GPT disks.
I have noted that disk.sys must be extracted to work in XP and I don't remember what this means.
Do you know information to read GPT disks in XP? I want to read a USB disk.

I have copied the disk.sys and partmgr.sys files from Windows 2003 to Windows XP.
But nothing new happens.
The disk appears in the disk manager as a protective GPT partition
I leave the attachments.
Caution, Spanish version, I don't know if they are the same as English version

partmgr.sys disk.sys

Check that the files are actually in place, the system may have restored them during boot from the dllcache folder. Or the problem is that the USB drive, I only checked for SATA. The language of the files does not matter, they are all identical.

When i did this i checked with USB drives and it worked fine.

Probably Windows restored the original files for you...
