ok, so yes, I am using illegal windows, simply because of this computer wont be much connected online. SO anywAY, I downloaded Windows xp from torrent, when downloading windows(just like any game) you get a cd image, wich either you have to burn on a cd or use virtual cd opener, like PowerISO or Daemon Tools. Anyway, i burned the cd image to a cd, and put the cd in the CD-ROM, but when I try to run the image thats on the CD, the computer scans it, then nothing.
This is what you do, take a lighter and put it to the bottom of the CD, this should bring the data closer to the surface where it needs to be in order for your computer to read it.

Asking a forum full of Linux users to help you pirate software is like asking for a drink in an AA meeting.

The answer: No F-ing way.

typo, sorry. I meant I thought it was windows based but gave you the feel of linux. (almost typed windows again, lol)

I'm assuming it was made for windows users to get the feel of linux?

trust me. it ain't worth it to get windows illegally. its just wrong and windows isnt that great of a system, in my opinion anyway.

(sorry for double post. i'm very tired and thought I hit the "edit" button).

We will *NOT* support you with any kind of illegal activity, sorry.

Strictly against our rules.
