Please tell more about that older copy of Windows. What version, and how did you make it?

As far as I know Microsoft never supplied versions of the OS that were in 2 iso-files. In fact, up to Windows 7, Microsoft only supplied disks. And a Windows setup always has been on one disk.

We know that MCE is at it's heart XP PRO but then the capability to use Windows Server (Domain/AD) logins was disabled.

That's one strange version. Did you create that?

In principle, it's quite easy.

1. Mount the ISO's (either using a virtual CD program or after burning to CD).
2. Make a new folder on your hard disk.
3. Copy whatever you need to that new folder.
4. Edit if necessary
5. Burn that new folder to a bootable CD using your favorite burning program
6. Make an ISO of that CD

Done. The difficult steps in this case will be #3 and #4.

You can google up ISO EDITORS but as MSFT never issued such an image you would have lots of fun trying to make this work!
