bootable windows cd image
i am in the hardware testing phase of my project and am wondering if anyone has a cd image they have created using nlite or equivalent to boot windows from a cd. i have found many posts reguarding creating flashcard type installs, but none that use a cd. all i would need is a very basic cd image to boot windows, hopefully with some sort of mp3 player to test my sound card as well. hopefully one that someone has used several times and feels is stable. since i already have my cd player installed and i have succesfully booted GeexBox operating system (geexbox.org if anyone is interested) i would like to try the same thing with windows. this is a result of a failed instal of my hard drive....i cant get windows xp to boot from my hard drive and i am hoping this will allow me to figure out why or at least bandaid the situation until i can fully test the mobo in a spare desktop computer.
also note i have very limited knowledge of software and programing, this is why i am hoping someone has a cd image i can borrow rather than trying to create my own from my windows xp install cd.
