I ran through this guide and finished it with almost complete success. I don't really notice a difference in the time it takes to install xp. I notice a huge size difference like gosh says. Its like around 350 megs. Gosh if you're seein' this...how long did it take for u to install xp with this rapid install copy?

VOL folders should be on the root of cd.

I don't think i ever talked about my 2nd menu. My cd also had 10 boot images, such as drive image and norton ghost. You can easily create an .ima file using Winimage.

Windows Update refuses to acknowledge that I've installed the update either using this method, normal unattended installs, or even via WU itself on my main computer. I assumed it was MS' fault. :)

i followed the first page instructions (exept the bootfix thing, cause i can't find it) i burned the cd.

the problem is, that when the blue screen setup comes up, it asks me to put windows xp profesional sp1 disk into drive A...

-zero-: it's a cd ident issue. Make sure the root of the cd has the cd ident files - spnotes.htm, win51,win51ip,etc. My Guide does work, so you must have missed something.

OUCH!

i had put em in the i386 folder... what an id***...

is it necesary to use tje cdimage.exe to make the the .ISO?

or can i use nero to burn the cd just like i used to ? (using the xpboot.bin as boot file)

also, where can i get the bootfix.bin?

thx

really? thx :)

what about nero? i'll try with a re-writable cd now, i don0t want to waste another cd-r, and with the .iso method, it tells me i have to finalise my cdwr, and i'm not sure, but i think that would turn it like a cr-r and not be rewritable anymore.

Why not use cdimage? You just type a command for cdimage then youre done. I don't see why people think typing one command is harder than going through nero and configuring everything.
