Has anyone created a Bootable WINPE 2005 DVD?

It is not documented in the help file. Anyone know how to do it?

I want to store a Ghost image on the same disk. But to do that I have to boot a DVD instead of a CD.

Yup... I am running of a DVD! If I am not mistaken u must specify a -m switch for the iso utility (oscdimg.exe) so that u can create images larger then 700 MB. I am not sure about the last part... but it defintly works to have WinPE on DVD.

I am using WinPE also on DVD with the -m switch as stated in the OPK.chm (OEM Preinstallation Kit). I install WinXP unattended using winnt32! Very handy! Quite nice too!

This post was helpful to me when cooking my last Windows XP image. I put all possbile hardware drivers in with my XP SP2 as well as all the software my company had for XP. The final ghost image plus WINPE was 4 GB. No matter what I did, I could not get WINPE 2005 to boot. For kicks I tried WINPE 2.0 and it couldn't handle it either. I trimmed it down to 3.95 GB and *poof*, now it works. To clarify the -m switch is all that is required with the oscdimg.exe to create the DVD iso.
