is it possible to reinstall windows without the bootable disk?
I had a windows xp cd some time ago but I missplaced it, luckaly I made an image (.iso) of it, now is there anyway I could format the C drive (I got C and D drives) and reinstall windows without a bootable disk and only using the .iso+daemon?

i don't think so, since it's used to boot at BIOS.
if you burned the .ISO to the cd by not just adding it there, you should be able to install it.

Yeah you have to burn the image onto a CD. Cd images are mounted on windows startup, not on pc startup.

EDIT:
Use nero and burn the iso file onto a blank CD. Easy as pie.
