Bootable CD's warfare


I wasted 9 cd's so far. I've read 3 tutorials. I've printed 2 of 'em. I've been putting 'check'-marks after every step on every tutorial. I've checked everything twice before burning the CD. Then I've checked everything for the third time. I've used Nero, EasyCD creator and CDRWin. I'm about to have a nervous breakdown.


I own a non-bootable copy of WinXP pro. The goal is to create a bootable cd with unattend.txt, so I don't have to specify all the standard shit.

Now, the errors I've got so far:

  • xxxx.dll missing, setup cannot continue
  • can't find the EULA. Setup cannot continue
  • cannot access the Windows XP Professionnal CD-Rom, make sure the cd is in the drive, and press any key to continue
  • Please insert the Windows XP cd-rom into the A: drive and press any key to continue (one of those again, and Im gonna do it!)


Please give me a link or write me a tutorial so simple that even my mom would understand, becouse I'm really desperate.

You could also download the bootdisk (floppy) from microsoft which will eliminate the need for a bootable CDROM (useful if you have a 3rd party raid device and can't select to boot from the cdrom)

thnx


Gajef, this is indeed a nice site.

Punk, the meaning of all this is that I will be able just to put in my cd rom and watch the whole installation without doing anything. The setup takes about 50 mins, and I'm always filling in the same details.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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!
