whatss a good program made to burn winndows cds.. so that u can install on boot:read:
Do you mean "to make a bootable CD" as in switch /s?
Do you mean "to make viable copies of bootable CDs?"
to be honest im not a hundred percent sure..
heres what i wanna do
make a cd that has windows xp.... fresh on it just incase i need to reinstall windows or if i would like to help a friend reinstall their's
hope this clears things up
n thanks for the reply
so just make a viable copy of the xp cd with simple duplication.
read my post on bypassing windows activation with simple registry
editing. This will work with XP. That way you can install to any
system without worrying about activation.
I like that trick.. but i'm simply asking for a program that burns windows xp onto a cd or dvd.
a program that burns it so that when u put cd/dvd in computer and restart computer it begins installing (windows xp)
So you don't actually have a disk that you are duplicating.
Is the XP in ISO form or what?
If it's an ISO just use Nero.
You don't have to do anything special to make an operating
system disc bootable. Just copy it.
I don't recommend that you try to extract an islolated
operating system from your computer to use on another.
There are plenty of OS ISO files out there.
Check the APPs section, dude.
You could create your own using nLite or for vista vLtie
Please don't start stripping your Windows System components without expert help.
Perhaps Wolfen's will post a guide or tutorial for you.
Remove Windows components like Media Player, Internet Explorer, Outlook Express and more
nLite is a GUI for permanent Windows component removal by your choice.
After removal there is an option to make bootable image ready for burning on cd or testing in virtual machines
With nLite you will be able to have Windows installation which on install doesn't include, or even contain on cd, unwanted components.
Mainly, it's a little bit of a slipstreamer, customizer, reducer and iso creator all in one package.
Quick overview :
1. Slipstream - After you extract it to any folder and run it, you can browse and point to folder on hard drive which contains your Windows installation.
If you pointed to right folder with i386 in it and Windows id files, nLite will detect if you have already slipstreamed SP1 or SP2, and if not it will change Browse button to Slipstream, when pressed it asks for Service Pack installation file (or update.exe if you extracted it). Then it Slipstreams it passively. Or you can configure your existing version without slipstreaming.
2. Customize/Reduce - Choose which components to remove from your Windows installation permanently. It's version independent, it's possible because I'm not using filelists, well, allmost. There is only an inf-filelist which then gets parsed for used files, so ~95% of file names are automatically generated from your own inf's. The other 5% are manually added. Most likely nLite will work with future versions of Windows XP without any problem.
3. Advanced Options - Make sure to keep Data directory with nLite and all the files in it unrenamed. Added automatic hacking of syssetup.dll for OOBE disabling (if you choose to remove it, this will not crack Activation). SFC is entirely disabled too simply by copying hacked dll from Data and adjusting registry. Many options to add in the future, priority so far was on reduction issues.
4. Make ISO - This section is using external file datacdimage.exe which I believe don't need introducing. When reduction process finishes you can copy additional files to installation directory and then press Make ISO, it will ask you for desired ISO name and location.
thanks guys... and yes iso form but nero sseems to be a heavy duty program.. anything with less size that works good..?
i personally use " PowerISO / Power ISO v4.3
"do a search and you will find:heyo:
Yes use UltraISO this is what I use to burn all my ISO files from OS's to basic programs and it works fine and is light on your system.
I did a basic search so just click the link and find the newest version and install and burn.
