I have been running a variety of Windows operating system versions on my workstations. At the moment my collection consists of Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. Some time ago I decided to install Windows 7 on my Windows XP machine. That was however easier said than done as I got the infamous Code 5 error: "Cannot boot from CD-ROM Code 5".

Just as a lot of other people I was getting frustrated about the lack of exact information about this issue.

I did however stumble upon a very simple and very effective solution. The solution is described at: http://www.sevenforums.com/installation-setup/2591-boot-error-code-5-a-2.html#post31719.

I can tell you that it was quite a nostalgic feeling having to find a diskette to boot from. ;^)

The reason I am writing this blogpost, which basically is just an echopost, is that I hope that others might benefit from an increased focus on this solution. I do not know AlfaMikeDelta, but I do know that he is a personal hero of mine at the moment.
