Check out ImgBurn for free burning program needs.
And it's been a long time since I've made a slipstreamed XP CD, but I'm pretty sure that boot sector file is really pretty small. All it needs to do is tell the BIOS where to find the rest of the files needed to boot the installer.
So to by pass problems w/ XP Pro (no SP) onto a SATA HD machine, I have successfully created a slipstream XP w/ SP .iso using N-Lite.
My question is that after using IsoBuster to "extract Microsoft Corporation.img" (saved to a folder) from the left side "bootable CD", How big should the extracted item be?
The extraction gave the .img as 2kb. There were a few sec. files there also (bootcatalog.cat & image) totaling 4kb. I think that 2 +2 kbs =4kb.
Does this sound about right? Have I missed something? After the extraction there was a message about "no system files were found, would you like to search again?" yes brings no additional files found making me think there should be?
Possibly a moot point since I've discovered the only 2 burning softwares I currently have (Nero Express & Sonic Record Now) are both OEM bundled versions that don't support "create a bootable CD"!
!! Likely I'll have to have someone w/ full versions do the actual burn of the bootable CD for me unless someone knows of a free, trustworthy, down loadable burning software that does support such?
Thanks for your knowledge in advance! Sandy
