I made the same mistake. That file is just the service pack (a collection of patches), not the operating system. I have been unable to find an iso file anywhere for any version of XP, itself, for several years.

WinPE itself contains one "bootfix.bin". When converting WinPE to ISO, that ISO will be having one more "bootfix.bin". I think when booting through WIMBOOT it will use bootfix.bin inside *.wim file. And when booting through ISO it will use bootfix.bin under "media/boot/bootfix.bin"(this is for 32bit). I am able to boot without the "press any key prompt" ...

I know this question is old and has an accepted answer, but I found an alternate solution to renaming files. This HP suite is difficult to deal with and removing it can be difficult. Disabling HP ProtectTools Service Press Ctrl+Alt+Del and select "Task Manager." Click the "Services" tab and select "hpqwmiex" without quotes in the list. Click "Open ...

Hadien is absolutely correct in his posting however, for me, I got my Asus Z87-Deluxe motherboard to post and boot up perfectly using the Asus 2103 Bios firmware. Key wording is you "must" use the Asus Flashback utility and NOT EZ Flash2 which is what I did. I spent over 47 hours (on and off) before I gave up and emailed Asus support. If you use EZ ...

You might have caused the problem by reducing the Windows partition too much. Windows has some unmovable files that a third-party product might decide to move. You should in the future use the Windows Disk Manager to resize its partitions, as it will not break the disk. It is also a good idea to first turn off and empty the Recycle Bin, disable the Paging ...

No. OS X requires Apple hardware. You could look at running a hackintosh, though the legality is dubious and it'll be a lot more work than simply putting the SSD into a PC, if it's possible at all on your new hardware.

Burn the windows 7 to a DVD and put it in your dvd drive, Turn on the computer, and press F12 to access the Boot Menu, choose your DVD Drive, and just follow the installation. If that doesn't work, then press f2 as the computer starts to access the BIOS, and choose the dvd drive, to boot from.

By installing Windows 8 after Ubuntu you have overwritten GRUB (Ubuntus default Bootmanger) in the MBR (Master Boot Record) and need to reinstall it. A good manual to do this can be found here.

You're safe to do that. It renames your original install to Windows.old with your documents, settings, and program files as a form of backup. If you don't need anything from the original install, just delete the folder.

Assuming a BIOS (not EFI) x86 system. Some architectures like ARM require platform data or device tree info. Build a kernel. Make a single boot filesystem, and mark as bootable. Install the kernel into the boot filesystem. Install a bootloader. Configure the bootloader to boot your kernel, no arguments necessary, no init{ramfs,rd}. Boot. Read ...
