Tip & How-To about Ahead Software Nero 7 Essentials Suite Full Version OEM

Create a new bootable CD for your Slipstreamed Windows XP using NeroROM

After you have slipstreamed the latest service pack 3 and all hotfixesin order to use this to perform a new install you will need to eitherburn a new CD or use the ISO mounted to perform it using a VirtualMachine for testing purposes.

The easiest way is to use Nero Burning ROM to create a Bootable CD you will need to follow these instructions

  1. Obtain the Microsoft Corporation Bootable image file (IMG) extract and save it using ISOBuster from an ISO image of the original Windows CD
  2. Open NeroROM and select CD-ROM Bootable option then select the image file you extracted in 1.
  3. Make the window look like the screen dump below,ensure that you select No Emulation and change the Load Segment ofsectors to #07C0 and the No.of Loaded sectors to 4
  4. Then select New
  5. You will need to add all the files from the folder that you have just slipstreamed the SP3 + post hotfixes
  6. I suggest that you save the project as GRTMHOEM_EN forWindows XP Home and GRTMPROF_EN for the Professional Version so thatyou can use it later for the same folder
  7. Press Burn, I suggest low burn speed X4 when using the Nero ASPI or create an ISO using Nero and the burn it using Patin-Couffin Interface option on ImageBurn with my AWS that includes 80% of all readily available media.

My Hard Drive is 250 GB but I only see 137GB


Windows xp has a max Hard drive limit of 137GB, so what you see is totally right.
Windows XP did not support 48-bit LBA for ATAPI disk drives, which is what larger drives needs.
The service packs do address the problem but you need to have a copy of windows xp which includes at least service pack 1 on the installation.
The problem is when you install from your original disk, it doesn't include the service packs, so by the time you have got the system up and running the hard disk space has already been allocated.

Bios update wont help
controller card won't help either

Possible solutions:
If you can get hold of a new version of XP which includes at least service pack 1, you can re-install with this disk and it should find all your hard disk space
or
You can do what is called 'slipstreaming', this is when you burn the original XP disk and the service packs together on one disk, but it does take a bit of working out.

here are a few links which may help you more:

cant finish loading win xp


is this a new computer (built for vista)? If so, then the most likely culprit is the driver set in XP cannot handle your hardware. so it locks when it gets to that point. Or it could be a read/write error. First try installing again, but delete all existing partitions and make new one, and when you format, do not use quick format. If that doesn't do it, you will most likely need to build a custom windows install cd to make it work. You can slip stream Service Pack 3 in, and that helps. you can also slipstream drivers for your PC into the disc so that the will be available at install time. Check out nLite, at the link below, really good package for doing this.

HELP ME


hi there my friend,

we have the hard way and then we have the easy way...

the hard way is to bootup with your bootable xp cd .follow the installation guide ..then.put in your key when you get the chance to ..and finish the installation. then apply service pack 2 to your installation .. and you're done...

the easy way would be to make a Slipstream Windows XP Service Pack 2 CD....which you can use each time you need to fix your system.

1 - Download the (full) "Network Install" of the Service Pack (English version [266 MB]), and save it to a directory (folder) on your hard drive (in my case D:\XP-SP2). Other languages can be downloaded from the Microsoft Download Web site.

Note: do not use spaces in the folder name!

2 - copy your Windows XP CD to your hard drive. Just create a folder (I used \XP-CD), and copy all the contents of your Windows XP CD in that folder.

3 - , open a Command Prompt (Start > Run > cmd), and go to the folder where you downloaded SP2 (cd \foldername). Type the command: servicepack filename /integrate:drive/path. In my example the command is WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU /integrate:D:\XP-CD.

Extract SP2 files

If you get the error:

This service pack can't be integrated error

This is caused by the fact that your Windows XP CD contains updates that will be automatically installed when you run setup. This type of CD's will usually be from larger OEM suppliers (like Dell, HP, or others).

You cannot use this type of CD to create a slipstreamed SP2 install.

First, the files will be extracted, and next they will be integrated in your Windows XP files:

Updating Windows Share

When ready, you should get a confirmation. Windows XP Service Pack 2 has now been Slipstreamed into your original Windows XP files.

Slipstream Completed


Creating a Bootable CD

For this part I used IsoBuster and Nero Burning ROM 6

After you install IsoBuster, you can choose to use only the product's free functionality for what we want to do, IsoBuster will look like the image below (you need to have your original Windows XP CD in the CD-ROM drive).

Start to extract the boot loader from the original Windows XP CD. Using IsoBuster, select the "folder" Bootable CD, and right-click Microsoft Corporation.img. From the menu choose Extract Microsoft Corporation.img, and extract it to the folder on your hard drive where you have your Windows XP files (D:\XP-CD in my case).

Extract Boot Image

Next, start Nero Burning ROM, and choose CD-ROM (Boot) in the New Compilation window. On the Boot tab, select Image file under Source of boot image data, and browse to the location of the Microsoft Corporation.img file. Also enable Expert Settings, choosing No Emulation, and changing the Number of loaded sectors to 4 (otherwise it won't boot!)

Nero Boot Settings

The ISO tab should be configured correctly as shown below:

Nero ISO Settings

If you have an older version of Nero you won't have the option Do Not Add ";1" ISO file version extention under Relax ISO Restrictions. You won't be able to boot your new CD, so update Nero!
You can configure the Label tab to your liking, I would however recommend that you keep the Volume Label the same as on your original Windows XP CD. Here are some (English) Labels:

* Windows XP Professional: WXPCCP_EN
* Windows XP Home: WXHCCP_EN
* Windows XP Professional OEM: WXPOEM_EN
* Windows XP Home OEM: WXHOEM_EN

Nero Label Settings

Next press New, and from the File Browser window, select the files and folders from your slipstreamed location (in my case D:\XP-CD). Now drag & drop the selected files in the ISO1 window.

Copy Files

Next, burn your new CD.

Burn

You now have a Bootable, Slipstreamed Windows XP Service Pack 2 CD!
