Default Making a bootable backup of winXP with Nero

sponsored links

 
Hi now i know this is walking a 'very thin line' but i have a valid reason for doing this. I scratched my windows XP CD so i have borrowed a mates and need to make a bootable copy.

I'm using Nero and Windows XP, in winME i'd create a boot disk and then use that, is it the same thing for XP. Any help is much appreciated.

Cheers

XP CD itself is bootable, so nothing else is needed.

There is no copy protection of any kind and if your mates CD is an original then it is bootable and therefor a copy would be bootable.

If however your mate has a pirated copy then who knows...

Ok his copy is not a pirated copy! It boots and the copy doesn't.

Anyway i used the guide [url=***********.justinwojas.com/bootcd.htm]Here and also managed to 'slipstream' SP1 into the install so no need to re-install SP1 every time i format!
