Default How-To: Bootable Windows XP?

sponsored links

 
I want to make a backup copy of my Windows XP CD. However I cannot seem to make a bootable copy.

Someone says there are settings I have to change in Nero.

Under Nero what are the settings,

Boot
- Kind of emulation: Floppy Emulation 1.44MB
- Boot message: Nero Boot-Loader V6.0
- Load segment of sectors (hex!): 07C0
- Number of loaded sectors: 1
ISO
- File name length: Max. of 11 = 8 + 3 chars (ISO Level 1)
- Format: Mode 1
- Character set: ISO 9660 (standard ISO CD-ROM)

These are default when I create a new CD-ROM (Boot) compilation. But I remember it's different for Windows XP bootable.

Do you know the settings?

Just do a straight copy of the CD and don't bother with the boot settings. If you have it, use CloneCD or similar.
Are you certain that your copy is bootable? WinImage will tell you.

Yes am positive. A friend sent me a copy of this file called boot.bin. He says that's the bootimage used for Windows XP. I don't want to used CloneCD because I want to add/fit in Windows XP Service Pack 2.exe file. That means I have to manually create a new compilation using a program like Nero (which am doing now).....

ISOBuster, WinISO or WinImage can be used to extract the boot image from your own CD. The process is simple.

Select [b]Enable Expert Settings (for advanced users only)[/b]

Set [b]Kind of Emulation[/b] to [b]No Emulation[/b]
Set [b]Load Segmentof Sectors (hex)[/b] to [b]07C0[/b]
Set [b]Number of Loaded Sectors[/b] to [b]4[/b]

Other fields such as volume label etc have to be changed as well.
Full instructions for manual slipstreaming can be found [url=***********.theeldergeek.com/slipstreamed_xpsp2_cd.htm]here.

You could use Autostreamer or NLite to do all the hard work for you.
