What is your boot source? Did you create an iso image of a bootable Windows XP CD or are you booting the VM straight from a physical XP CD loaded into a physical CD drive?

well according to the guide, i think i portioned off a space on my hard drive to be used as the hard drive for the virtual machine. which labeled as coming from "Drive E" but that's a problem as on my computer "Drive E" is the disc reader. so i don't know what's up wtih that. i really just don't know how to use the program. and no, i didn't use a bootable windows xp CD. i don't have one of those. this would be so much easier on a windows 7 machine as microsoft has a thing called XP mode but this is only for windows 7. unless you guys have a way i can use that on windows 10.

You need a Windows XP CD in order to install XP on a virtual machine.

The Oracle Virtual Box creates a virtual area to load an Operating System on. Now, you need to provide the Operating Systems Install Media. If you want to install XP, then put in an XP CD, or whatever OS you want to have a virtual machine of (ie) Linux, Windows 98, 7, 8 or whatever. So, if you don't have an XP CD, you can't load XP.

It doesn't matter what Youtube video tutorial you follow, You have to provide the Operating System disc to install the OS (ie) XP, 7, 8, 10, or Linux
