We also had the problem of the absence of EULA (“Configuration cannot find the end user license agreement”). I used Rufus 1.3.4. In the advanced format options, you can change the BIOS ID. The standard BIOS ID has been set from Rufus to 0x81. I tried 0x82, which restarted the PC forever. Then I tried 0x80 and passed the EULA message and was able to format the partition and the installation files were copied to the partition. Unfortunately, after a reboot, I launched the error “Windows could not be started because the following file is missing or corrupted: system32hal.dll Please reinstall a copy of the file below.” I could solve this problem by reworking the boot.ini file on the hard disk of the target computer and replacing “multi (0) disk (0) rdisk (1) partition (1)” twice for “multi(0) disk (0)rdisk (0)partition (1)”. I even searched in the ISO file and I can find the Eula file in txt, so I don`t know why it still says that *: I know that despite the drive label, it will work well, but my end user is not a computer scientist and he troubles them after the last 20 years with C: . I tried to install xp on a netbook with Linux with rufus. It seems that Flashdisk is now a bootable drive and is trying to install xp on the netbook, but there is an error that says “Configuration cannot find the End User License Agreement” (EULA) and ends the configuration. The most common problem is that your source XP does not contain the appropriate hard drive drivers for your system. If your BIOS is configured for SATA-AHCI mode, change it to Legacy IDE mode.

If you cannot change the BIOS mode of AHCI/SATA, you should either get an XP CD/ISO with built-in mass storage drivers or use Easy2Boot with the package of mass storage drivers added. Look here also superuser.com/a/623998/63915 If he can`t find one file, it`s likely he can`t find others. This is only one thing to give the error. I have to continue with the installation, and this error occurs. » Setup End User License Agreement (EULA) cannot be found. I tried two programs, but I always failed until I found this forum. It is only for the protocol and without offending another method/tool and its respective authors that I would try the WinsetupFromUSBwithGUI approach which I believe is the most tested (successfully). Full Error Message: “Configuration Cannot Find End User License Agreement (EULA) I have set the hard drive to boot before the USB port and use F12 to get a Start menu. Nevertheless, the Windows files have been copied to the USB drive. Before he started copying, it was said, “Examine an 80 GB drive” or something of that magnitude is the hard drive. The configuration therefore knows that the hard disk exists.

The first partition is FAT32 8GB, active. The second partition is NTFS~65Gb, expands logically. As I said, installing Windows from the optical drive works well (same partition scheme: Windows installs on 8GB FAT32). Well, the flash drive boots well, but after pressing the enter key to install XP, there is an error that the EULA cannot be found. I didn`t find a solution that worked, so I`m posting it here. Is the problem that I have changed the files or is there a problem with Rufus? If it is the first, is it possible to get XP to install and boot successfully on an external hard drive? If it`s that last point, what do I have to do to make it work, if Rufus works for it? I tried bios 0x80, 0x81 and 0x82.. .
