Hi -

If you're unaware of how to burn operating systems and images, refer to this guide for further reading.

If you're unaware of image formats, download Extension Finder or refer to what an .ISO is by going here.

I've personally tried MagicISO and it worked flawlessly, although I prefer other burning tools.

This is interesting, it's using the Windows feature "restore" to burn an .ISO image.

To burn a windows disc properly,

1. Need to have show hidden files and folders on.
2. Then copy it to harddrive
3. Now you will need Isobuster to pull the microsoft image from the xp disc and copy
it to the xp files you copied onto harddrive. (this is why its not booting from cd).
4. Next, Magic ISO to make an image file of it ( I use as undocked windy posted)
5. Burning program, such as nero 6, or nero 7, or there are a few others that will work too.
