My Mom got a laptop recently. And we went to fix a problem(caused by the Fn key) we did a system restore /w backup. So we have the origanal windows dir and everything in a backup dir. I want to restor them back to gewt everything exactly how it was without having to download all the software all over again. One problem. The files in the windows folder are write protected. So I have to boot it in another OS then copy the backed up copy over the new copy(from the restore). I've tried using the restore prompt from the win xp cd, but it wouldn't work cause copy don't work with wildcards or subdirectories, and xcopy won't work on it. I would make a dos boot cd but dos doesn't recognize partitions larger than 2 Gb. Is it possable to put a copy of linux onto a CD and boot from there, or will it not fit?
