Recently I was trying to upgrade my Windows XP Home Edition to Windows XP Professional Edition on my computer. One day while I was trying to install it, my CD drive burnt out. Now I'm no longer able to install from the CD. I do, however, have a copy of the CD contents on my hard drive. I was wondering if it is possible to install Windows from my local drive. I want to do a clean install and format the drive so I'm not sure if it's possible. Is there maybe a way to put the CD contents on a different partition or something? I really want to do a clean install due to the fact that my current Windows install is full of spyware and adware that no removal program I've tried can remove. Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
