Ok im having problems with this. I have read the guide over and over. My bios is ancient so it seems i cant boot from usb flash drive. Now heres my problem, i follow the tutorial, line for line, i get to the part were it says to type your drive letter, (Mines is C (thats the only hard disk listed) than hit cd xbf. When i do this action, it says Change Directory XBF failed. I even created a smaller 1 gig partition and tried it on that, same thing. Change directory XBF failed. I did everything right im sure, i did the xtreme bootmaker correctly, the XBF folder formatted correctly in my root folder. When i start up my cpu, i only leave the hard drive XBF is on and the cdrom to boot the XBF cd. I'm not sure why the change directory is failing and i was wondering if anyone could help me without flaming me like Scorpion from Mortal Kombat. Heres my CPU specs anyways CPU: AMD Athlon™ XP 3200+ Processor QuantiSpeed™ Architecture operates at 2.200GHz 512KB L2 cache & 400MHz FSB Operating System: Genuine Microsoft® Windows® XP Home Chipset: NVIDIA® nForce™2 Memory: 512MB DDR (PC 2700) Hard Drive: 160GB HDD (7200rpm) Optical Drive: DVD ± RW Drive (Write Max: 8x DVD±R, 4x DVD±RW, 32x CD-R, 16x CD-RW; Reads 40x CD, 12x DVD); 48x Max.
