I have a Netbook without a CD rom which has been running Windows XP.
I decided to install Linux on it to run a dual setup, however that somehow corrupted my Windows installation, probably because of when Linux Mint created its partition, perhaps it overwrote some data from Win XP.
I was previously getting an error for a missing file, which I downloaded and put into my system32 folder. Now when I boot windows, it just gets stuck on 'mup.sys' file and then it reboots. I think this is because of missing windows files, and if I could just restore windows xp from a boot disk, that would fix it.
Since I don't have a CD rom, I have to use a USB to create a windows XP bootdisk. So far I'm not having any luck with that. All the tools for building a Windows boot disk seem to be Windows only, and I can't seem to be able to run them on Wine.
Any ideas how to fix this situation?
