Step 1: Copy your XP CD-ROM contents to the hard drive
First, you need to find your Windows XP CD-ROM (any bootable and/or retail version; including Full and Upgrade versions; XP Home or Pro "gold" release) and copy the contents of the CD to your hard drive. Create a folder in the root of your C: drive called xp (C:\xp) and use My Computer to simply drag and drop the files between the two locations.



Step 2: Get XP SP2
While this is copying, obtain the Full Network Install version of Windows XP Service Pack 2 (272 MB), which you can download from the Microsoft Web site or copy from the Windows XP SP2 CD-ROM. The download version of this file is named WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU.exe, while the CD version is called xpsp2.exe. However, both are identical, save for the name. For this reason, I will refer to the simpler xpsp2.exe below, but you can substitute WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU.exe for that (You can also rename WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU.exe to xpsp2.exe if you'd like). Now, create a new folder called sp2 on the C drive (C:\sp2) and then copy this file to that location.

Step 3: Combine XP with SP2
Now, you need to bring up a command line window by navigating to Start, and then Run, and typing "cmd" (no quotes); then hit ENTER. In the command line window, type the following (where [ENTER] means hit the ENTER key):

cd \ [ENTER]
cd sp2 [ENTER]
xpsp2.exe /integrate:c:\xp [ENTER]



First, an Extract dialog box will come up and extract the files contained within xpsp2.exe. Then, XP SP2 Setup will combine, or slipstream, the SP2 files into the XP install, as shown in this figure:

3

When it's completed, you'll see this dialog box. Click OK, and then close the command line window. If you don't see this dialog, you've done something wrong. Ensure that the command line entries you've used are correct.



Step 4: Extract a file needed to make your new CD bootable
Before we simply burn the resulting file set to a CD, we need to make sure we have a hidden file found on your XP CD-ROM that will make your new CD bootable. We can't grab this file with My Computer, but will instead use a shareware tool called ISOBuster, which you can find on the Smart Projects Web site. The latest version at the time of this writing is 1.6.

After you download and install ISOBuster, choose to use only the product's free functionality, unless you decide to purchase it, which wouldn't be a bad idea. The ISOBuster UI will resemble the following (assuming you've left your XP CD in the CD-ROM drive):



On the left-side tree view, make sure you have selected the node named Bootable CD. You should see a file called Microsoft Corporation.img (or similar; it will be named something.img) in the right side of ISOBuster. This is the file you need to extract. To do so, right-click and choose Extract Microsoft Corporation.img. When ISOBuster prompts you, choose to download it to the root of your C: drive. Now you can close ISOBuster.

Step 5: Make a bootable XP SP2 CD
Start My Computer and make a note of the name of your Windows XP CD (my CD happens to be named WXPVOL_EN because it's a volume licensed version of XP Pro, but yours will likely be different). Then, eject the XP CD and place a burnable CD (CD-R or CD-RW) in your CD burner, and dismiss any autorun dialog boxes XP might display.

Now, you're ready to burn your new, bootable Windows XP SP2 CD. How you do this will depend on the CD writing software you use. In this section, I'll examine Nero Burning ROM 6 and versions 5 and 6 of Roxio Easy CD/Media Creator. Please note, however, that the latest version of Easy Media Creator, version 7, will not work. I'm looking into workarounds.

Click here for Nero Burning ROM 6 instructions
Click here for Easy CD Creator 5.x instructions
Click here for Easy CD Creator 6.x instructions (coming soon)

Step 5a: Make a bootable XP SP2 CD with Nero Burning ROM 6
First, start Nero Burning ROM and choose CD-ROM (Boot) from the New Compilation's Boot page. Then, under "Source of boot image data," choose "Image file" and select C:\Microsoft Corporation.img by clicking the Browse button. Then, select the option titled "Enable expert settings (for advanced users only)" and change "Kind of emulation" to No Emulation, and change "Number of loaded sectors" to 4. The "Load segment of sectors" option should remain at its default value of 07C0. When this step is completed, the Nero Burning ROM application should resemble the following:



Now, select the Label page in Nero Burning ROM. Under "Volume label, ISO 9660" enter the name of your CD (WXPVOL_EN in my case). When completed, this page of the dialog should resemble the following:



Now, click the New button. The New Compilation dialog disappears and the main window of Nero Burning ROM is available, as shown here.



On the right side of the application, in the File Browser area, navigate to C:\xp. Then, select all of the files inside of that directory and copy them over to the new CD, as shown here:





Now you're ready to burn the CD. Click the Burn icon in the toolbar, or choose Recorder and then Burn Compilation, and then click the Burn button. Nero will cache the files and then write them to disc, as shown here:



Now, jump down to Step 6...

Step 5b: Make a bootable XP SP2 CD with Roxio Easy Media Creator 5.x
Start Easy CD Creator and choose File, then New Project, and then Bootable CD. This will launch the Choose Type of Bootable CD dialog, shown below. In this dialog, select "No Emulation" for Bootable CD Type, 0x7c0 as the Load Segment (this is the default choice), and 4 for the Sector Count. Then, click the Browse button to locate the Microsoft Corporation.img file and use this as the bootable image. Click OK to close the dialog.



When the dialog closes, you're returned to the main Easy CD Creator window, which now shows two files, BOOTCAT.BIN and BOOTIMG.BIN, in the root of the CD project you're making. Select File and then CD Project Properties to launch the CD Project Properties dialog. There are three tabs in this dialog, and they should be configured to resemble the following three shots.





A couple of notes here: The Volume Label should match the name of your original XP CD-ROM. In the figure above, it's named WXPFPP_EN, which is the name of the retail Windows XP Professional (US) CD-ROM, but yours could be different. Make sure the options in each tab on your system match the options as shown in figures above, then click OK to close the dialog.

Now, drag and drop all of the files from C:\xp to the CD project. You can do this from within the Easy CD Creator interface, or you can open a My Computer window and drag them over from there if you'd like. When you're done, the Easy CD Creator window should resemble the following.



Now, click the red Record button to start burning the CD. The Record CD Setup dialog appears. Click Start Recording to begin. While your CD is created, the Record CD Progress dialog will appear, as shown below. When its done, click OK to close the dialog.



Now, jump down to Step 6...

Step 5c: Make a bootable XP SP2 CD with Roxio Easy CD & DVD Creator 6.x
Start Creator Classic and choose File, then New Project, and then Bootable CD. This will launch the Choose Type of Bootable CD dialog. Click the Advanced button and the dialog will resemble the figure shown below. In this dialog, select "No Emulation" for Bootable Disc Type, 0x7c0 as the Load Segment (this is the default choice), and 4 for the Sector Count. Then, click the Browse button to locate the Microsoft Corporation.img file and use this as the bootable image. Click OK to close the dialog.



When the dialog closes, you're returned to the main Creator Classic window, which now shows two files, BOOTCAT.BIN and Microsoft Corporation.img, in the root of the CD project you're making. Rename Microsoft Corporation.img to BOOTIMG.BIN.

Now, select File and then CD Project Properties to launch the CD Project Properties dialog. There are three tabs in this dialog, and they should be configured to resemble the following three shots.





A couple of notes here: The Volume Label in the first tab should match the name of your original XP CD-ROM. In the figure above, it's named WXPFPP_EN, which is the name of the retail Windows XP Professional (US) CD-ROM, but yours could be different. Make sure the options in each tab on your system match the options as shown in figures above, then click OK to close the dialog.

Now, drag and drop all of the files from C:\xp to the CD project. You can do this from within the Creator Classic interface, or you can open a My Computer window and drag them over from there if you'd like. During the copy process, you will receive approximately three error dialogs noting that certain directory names (such as SYMBOLS.PRI) will need to be renamed to be compatible with the naming conventions of your disc file system. The first time you see this dialog, simply click "Change All" to dismiss it.



Once you're done copying the files, the Creator Classic window will resemble the following.



Now, click the orange Record button to start burning the CD. The Record Setup dialog appears. Click OK to start recording the CD. While your CD is created, the Burn Disc Progress dialog will appear, as shown below. When its done, click OK to close the dialog.



Step 6: Test it
Once the CD is created, you should test it on a non-critical system or in a virtual machine such as those used by Microsoft Virtual PC and VMWare Workstation. Depending on the environment you choose, the CD should either boot automatically, or you will see a note asking you to press any key to install. Use the CD to install Windows XP with SP2 to make sure it's working correctly. Most important, perhaps, ensure that the version of XP you've installed is SP2. To do so, go to Start, then Run, and type "winver" (no quotes) and hit ENTER. The SP2 version number is 5.1 (Build 2600.xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803-2158: Service Pack 2).

When you're done testing, you should consider backing up the newly created CD, and deleting the cruft you've added to your hard drive, specifically C:\Microsoft Corporation.img, and the directories C:\xp and C:\sp2

Warez, always make sure to state your source!... copyrights are still something to keep in mind. This is a great how to, from this site...

The steps to create are:

BCD installation instructions:

Download BCD full package v1.1.1 (523KB).

Or update from previous version: BCD update package (v1.1.0-v1.1.1) (5KB).
When updating from previous versions, just extract the package over the previous version, overwrite any existing files. The bcd.cfg file will not get overwritten!

Unpack the BCD package to some folder for example d:\bcd. If you want to be able to run it from a server you should unpack it to a share from where your workstations can run it. You will need to map a drive letter to that share and run bcd using that drive letter.
Make sure you also unpack the subdirectories!

Download Nero Aspi Library (wnaspi32.dll) and copy it into BCD's d:\bcd\bin directory.

I have asked Ahead Software AG if I could distribute their aspi manager with my BCD package but they said: "...due to our licence agreement you could only let your users download it freely from our web site...".


Download Windows XP package v1.0 (wxp10.zip) (5KB).
Unpack it into the BCD directory, d:\bcd.
Make sure you also unpack the subdirectories!

The Windows XP package contains the Windows XP bootstrap loader (same as Windows 2000) and some other files used to build the CD.


You must copy the i386 folder from your Windows XP installation/setup CD-Rom.
For Windows XP Home Edition copy it to the d:\bcd\cds\wxphome\files\ folder.
For Windows XP Professional copy it to the d:\bcd\cds\wxppro\files\ folder.
Make sure you copy all files and all subdirectories!

If you're Windows XP files are already "slipstreamed" with a service pack you must also copy the win51ic.SPx or win51ip.SPx file.
This will prevent the CD asking "put the SPx CD into drive A:" during install.

The location of the i386 folder may differ, for example when you have a dual boot MSDN cd-rom it will be in \%lang%\winxp\%edition%, where %lang% is your language, like "ENGLISH", "GERMAN" and %edition% is "Home" or "Pro". Other CD's may have it just in the root or in some other location.


Optionally you can also copy the following files (not needed for bootable CD installation):
autorun.inf
readme.htm
setup.exe


If you have a Windows XP CD from MSDN...
Edit the file i386\txtsetup.sif
section [SetupData], and change the setup source path, it should read: SetupSourcePath = "\"


You can apply Service Pack 1 to this installation (integrated installation). So that you have an installation CD-ROM with the service pack built in.
Apply service pack 1 to your files using the "-s" option (you must supply full path).

For Windows XP Home edition: xpsp1_en_x86.exe -s:d:\bcd\cds\wxphome\files\
For Windows XP Professional: xpsp1_en_x86.exe -s:d:\bcd\cds\wxppro\files\

Notes:

The Service Pack file can have another name, like xpsp1_nl_x86.exe for Dutch language.
The xpsp1_en_x86.exe can only be run on a Windows 2000 or XP PC!
You should now have a win51ic.sp1 or win51ip.sp1 file in the files directory. Check this, to prevent the CD asking "put the SP1 CD into drive A:" during install.


All other files and folders you want on the CD-Rom must also be added to the files directory, these files will not be integrated in the Windows XP installation, they're just parked there. Things you could add are: latest patches, internet explorer, directx.

Add your files to:
For Windows XP Home edition: d:\bcd\cds\wxphome\files\.
For Windows XP Professional: d:\bcd\cds\wxppro\files\.


Open a command prompt, go to the d:\bcd folder and run:
For Windows XP Home edition: bcd wxphome.
For Windows XP Professional: bcd wxppro.
This will build the (bootable) ISO image and burn it to your recorder.


Done!
