XP Boot Folders - NEED HELP!

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

On flyakite's Multi-Boot DVD tutorial (link), under the section "Creating the Boot Folder", it tells me that I need to execute winnt32.exe /noreboot to get the boot files. This method has worked for me in Windows Server 2003 SP1 Corporate, but when I try doing it in XP Pro SP2 Corporate, it prompts me for my product key. Upon entering it, it gives me the error "The product ID you entered is invalid".

Now I definetly KNOW my key is valid - I did a clean text-mode install in VMware and it accepted it, no questions asked. However, when installing from Windows, it refused point-blank to accept it. In desperation, I seeked out a keygen for XP Pro Corporate and it still rejected EVERY key I threw at it. Those keys also worked when I clean-installed in VMware. I can't understand this stubborness to refuse even valid keys. Like I said before, Windows Server 2003 gave me no problems.

So now I'm stuck. How the heck do I get the boot files for my multi-boot DVD? :no:
