    I had win xp installed on my computer. the boot disk ive for win xp is not the original cd it is a copied version. now when im starting my computer using boot floppy it tells me no cd rom device drivers found. still i continue reformat my hard drive by typing format c: and at some point i also deleted all the partitions and creatd a new fat32 partition but after i format my hard drive and set my bios to cdrom and reboot my computer. it gives me a msg "invalid system disk error".

    ive tried all ways to get this done but all in vain and im exhausted. i wud highly appreciate if you can point me in right direction. is the problem due to a copied version of xp that its not right away booting from cd or im missing cdrom drivers in my boot floppy??? or some other problem
