    Of course you cant because you have no idea what you are doing. Unbuntu has very nice gui friendly distro's which are probably more your speed.

    How is anyone expected to know what the problem is, when you ask it in the way you did and with absolutely no information at all.

    I fully understand. you are trying to install your bt disc (maybe .iso maybe not) while windows xp is loaded. You are looking for the intella shield backtrack installer. I said what I did because if you cant even boot a live cd your in for some real issues.

    Looks like we helped after all.
    They searched the forums, and are now reading "HOWTO: Dual boot XP & BT (With LILO)"
    So there's a step in the right direction at least.

    It would appear the problem is you cannot ask an intelligible question.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    1) Learn what an ISO is.
    2) Learn how to use an ISO.
    3) Learn some google'fu, search'fu, and wiki'fu

    My guess is a standard PEBKAC issue.
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    Well, Im sorry to tell you that you can't just install backtrack via Windows XP.
    I'll shortly explain how I installed backtrack on my laptop:

    1. Download Backtrack 2 final (RLY!?YA RLY!)
    2. Burn the BT2 iso with Nero to a CD.
    3. Partition HDD: Use Parition Magic (Can be finded on Hiren's Boot CD) to partition your harddrive. I did the following:
    I made one LINUXSWAP of 512MB, one boot of 50MB (ext3) and one to save backtrack2 on of 5GB (ext3).
    You need at least 2700MB for BT2, but I recommand at least 1GB more, because if you want to crack wep, you need to be able to store .cap files, and depending on the amount of packets, your file can be quite big (300mb easily, when not using ptw method).
    4. Launch boot cd, Login and startx
    5. Go to K-->System-->BackTrack installer
    6. Select the correct harddrive partition and install it.
    Wait...Wait...Wait...Can take some time....WAIT!... READY
    Now you are good to go, restart your system without the livecd ofcourse to see if it worked out.

    This did it for me


    Good luck.

    PS: If you want to add WindowsXP to the lilo bootloader, see this:
