Finally replacing 10yr old hardware. New system has 750 gig HD, XP Pro install CD is pre SP1, which means it can't see the entire hard drive. I know I could load XP, then after I apply SP2 I can then format the rest of the drive in a partition but I don't want to do that. Soooo... I've attempted to create a bootable XP install CD with SP2 slipstreamed in. Loading a directory w/ the install disk folders/file and merging it with SP2 was a piece of cake thanks to instructions found on this sight. I used CDBunnerXP to create the CD. When I try to boot with the burned CD I get the CDBOOT couldn't find NTLDR (I don't have any problems booting with the original install CD). I looked on the burned CD and both NTLDR and NTDTECT are loacated in the folder i386 folder, just as they are on the original install CD. The only think I can think if is, either I didn't create the boot CD correctly (very possible) or CDBurnerXP isn't capable or created the CD exactly the way it need to be created (less likely). Any help would be greatly appreciated.
