Boot ini file is corrupt missing or needs updating
If you get the "Setup cannot continue because the version of Windows on your computer is newer than the version on the CD.".You should create a slipstreamed copy of your XP CD by using the software and step by steps supplied in the links below.When the boot loader process fails, it will happen after you see the BIOS information but before Windows actually begins to load.
Once this was done, I tried updating again, and now it’s working well, running the new firmware.The BIOS then loads the master boot code into the PC’s RAM and hands off the startup processes to it.The master boot code scans the partition table, determines the active partition, loads a copy of the boot sector into the PC’s RAM, and hands off the startup process to that code.It is to your advantage you follow the suggestions to prevent data loss and especially if you also have the capability to boot into XP, perform the steps listed in the and you did not remedy the no boot situation, you can use an OEM XP Pro or Home, "retail" XP Home or Pro full or upgrade version CD of the same version Home or Pro to perform a Repair Install.OEM Restore disks or hidden restore folders on the hard drive will not work for the Repair Install.
It’s this boot strapping process that allows the initial bits of the Windows code to start loading.
