    If the I386 folder from the XP CD was not copied to the hard disk, insert the Windows XP CD and close the autorun program if it launches.

    Click Start, Run, type INF and click OK to open the folder. Right-click OOBE.INF and click Install.

    If you're prompted for the location of the files, browse to the I386 folder on the CD
