OEM........Bootable Slipstreamed CD

by Integrity / March 13, 2008 3:28 AM PDT

Hi All,

Problem: Can't make a BOOTABLE CD of XP PRO with SP2 and later SP3 slipstreamed.

Purchased: OEM XP PRO with SP1 and OEM XP PRO with SP1A, I have 2 computers.

Accomplished: Received the message " Integrated install has completed successfully" for a slipstreamed SP2 file and also a SP3 file version currently on my hard drive.

To attain a bootable CD I tried Bart PE with my origional OEM CDs with the following:
"Download PE Builder v3.1.10a - self-installing package (3.15MB) - if you are unsure what you need to download, get this!"

The build gave 3 warnings as follows:
Warning: building from an OEM version of Windows can mean trouble...
Warning: Creating ISO-9660:1999 (version 2) filesystem.
Warning: ISO-9660 filenames longer than 31 may cause buffer overflows in the OS.

My new Bart CD commenced booting and froze at about one third of the loading.

So then I tried the 10 day trial version at the following site:

I also downloaded and installed the following MS fix first for my 32 bit XP system:
The burning process froze.

Found the Active Disk Win ISO image file & tried to burn it with "CDBurnerXP"....didn't work but I think it isn't compatible with Vista.

Anyone have any other ideas on what I can use to make a bootable CD or DVDwith my OEM XP???

Those OEM versions can be the issue but

Try NLITE next time.

This is not an offer to help you make this happen but there are other ISO capable softwares that do work find with Vista. The issue with CDBURNERXP could be that native Vista cd/dvd recording is still enabled.

Think my problem is that my system is already screwed up. It got so bad that some of my earlier XP restore points disappeared. I also can't restore my OS with the backup ISO file made by Paragon.

I did get my boot Image file by extracting it from my OEM CD with ISOBuster. My burned XP-SP3 slipstreamed CD still won't boot, but I think I shall have to do a clean install before I can create it properly.

I think the important thing is to have the SP3 file available as a download to load BEFORE going on the NET for updates.

Then maybe I can also get the Win UBCD to work.
