    use nero and select "burn image" from the file menu

    then nero will recognize the files inside and automatically burn it to a CD

    yeah thats what i did. btw before i made the ISO i checked the folder to see what i had been left with and the olny files in there were

    I386 (folder)
    boot.bin
    WIN51
    WIN51P
    win51ip.sp2

    and thats all does that sound right?

    you do`t need an exe file

    i think your problem is your burning methode

    Make sure you burn the ISO using Disc-at-once in your burner options, rather than Track-at-once. Because this usually helps resolve bootability issues or file copy errors.

    You dont run your nLite XP cd from windows, you set your bios to boot from cd first and install it that way.

    and during the installation, you can just choose to reinstall windows, so you don't lose any of the other program data

    yeah the problem is no matter how many times ive tried i cant make the CD boot. ive done a one to one copy of my disc and it will boot from the disc no worries but i cant get my nlited one to boot. i looked at the disc in isobuster and it shows the disc is bootable so why wont it boot?

    i know its a long shot but anyone got a nlited XP iso they can uplaod somewhere so i can burn it and see what happens?
