I've found the guide for creating a boot cd, but I have a question maybe someone can answer before I try it. I have dual boot set up with ME and XP. Will this CD work as is or are there mods needed since XP is on the D drive? Thx

not for sure why you would need a boot disk for XP??? but in any event, if you have a dual boot already setup, when you make a boot disk (assumming an XP boot disk), and you boot.ini doesnt include ME, you will have to manually add ME to your boot.ini. Just ensure that the 2 boot.ini's (XP & boot disk) read the same.

I have never booted from a boot disk (because the CD is bootable), but i dont think it is going to prompt you for an OS even if you change the boot.ini. It is more of a repair disk than anything from my understanding. But anywho, I hope this helps.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
