"make a boot cd of Windows XP Professional"
My CD (from Microsoft) is bootable. All my 'from Microsoft' XP CDs boot. If I need another I just duplicate them.
Your approach is flawed so why not just order a replacement CD from those that have them?
I'm trying to make a boot cd of Windows XP Professional because the cd it's currently on isn't bootable, and the PC I'm going to install on isn't loading the current OS so I want to format/overwrite with this version.
I followed the instructions here-
and got the error in the nltdr error when trying to boot from the disc.
I don't see what I could have done wrong. I tried two different XP images
Could the problem be a conflicting label? It doesn't say specifically what you're supposed to enter. For example if I had an OEM copy of XP SP2 would I enter "VRMHVOL_EN" in both the "enter volume"/"enter volume set ID" fields or something else? Or does it not matter what is entered?
The other thing is when you open your cd image file, and drag it to the image window in UltraISO, does it matter if it's simply the one .iso file or do you have to see the contents of it in the window (ie. I386, AUTORUN.INF, SETUP.EXE, etc.)?
Also I checked the contents of the folder and there is indeed an nltdr file in there, so why would it be telling me it couldn't find it?
I never though making a boot cd would be so difficult.
Any help greatly appreciated.
