How to make a bootable Windows Vista ISO DVD media

  1. Put all 3 downloaded files (namely install.wim, boot.wim and an executable X13-49120.exe) in the same folder (for this tutorial, let’s assume the files are put on C:\ else you need to modify the path accordingly).
  2. Run the X13-49120.exe executable. Windows Vista Setup Preparation will create a new folder “Vista” inside the folder and will populate the folder with all necessary Vista setup files which takes up about 2.52 GB disk space.
  3. Exit from the Install Windows screen.
  4. Download CDimage 2.52.
  5. Extract CDimage from CDimage.zip to the C:\ root directory.
  6. Open a command prompt shell, and run the following command: cdimage.exe -lVISTA_EN_DVD -m -u2 -bC:\Vista\boot\etfsboot.com C:\Vista\ C:\Vistax86.iso
    Bootable Windows Vista x86 DVD ISO image in UDF format will be created as vistax86.iso in C:\ or any folder you specified above.
  7. Burn the newly create ISO with a CD/DVD burning software such as Nero or Alcohol 120%. Try to burn at low speed (i.e. 4X) and turn on verification to ensure that the DVD creation is fine.
Visit here for illustrative guide on using CDImage GUI version to make the bootable DVD ISO.

Create a Windows Vista ISO image and DVD with Oscdimg
Another possible way to create a bootable Vista ISO and DVD is by using Oscdimg CD-ROM and DVD-ROM Premastering Utility, available via WinPE (Windows Preinstallation Environment) via Business Desktop Deployment 2007 or Windows Automated Installation Kit (AIK).
  1. Complete step 1 – 3 as above.
  2. In the command prompt window, run the following command: oscdimg -bC:\Vista\boot\etfsboot.com -h -u2 -m -lVISTA_EN_DVD C:\Vista\ C:\VistaDVD.iso
    A VistaDVD.iso UDF DVD image will be created and can be used to boot the computer from DVD to install Vista.
  3. Burn the ISO image file by using last step above.
Visit the guide to create Vista bootable DVD using vLite.
Note: For 64-bit Windows Vista, download etfsboot.com and put it into “\Vista\boot” folder. Or users using WAIK (WinPE), the etfsboot.com can be found at %Programfiles%\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\amd64\boot\ folder. So simply replace -bC:\Vista\boot\etfsboot.com with -bC:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\amd64\boot\etfsboot.com when making 64-bit Vista DVD image.

BOOT MGR MISSING!!


if a friend has the xp cd, ask to use it, USE YOUR KEY CODE LOCATED ON A RAINBOW STICKER...usually on bottom of laptops, and back of pc desktops, this is your best bet, make sure your operating system is the one you both are using, ie...xp home edition on your puter, if your friend has professional, your key code wont work....make sure you both use home...or professional...sticker will tell you what your running.....a boot isk pretty much is obsolete with xp, windows 98 used em, me..as well....up to windows 2000, cd needed, downloaded the file really wont do it...i have never had sucess doing it....you can also contact the puter company and like $20.00 they should be able to send you the factory default restore/recovery disks, i am doing that with a friends toshiba now...waiting for the disks...that will be a way better thing tho, you'll have all info and drivers and os for it......good luck...shia

ABOUT OS...


No it is not if Vista is already loaded. In order for it to work and have a dual-boot, the earlier OS must be loaded first. So, first you must have Windows XP; then you can load Windows Vista; however it does not work the other way around. So if you wanted to have both, you would have to wipe your hard drive clean, load Windows XP, then load Windows Vista....Good Luck.

If you truely have Xp and Vista installed properly, you will see a dual-boot menu when the PC starts up... From there you would have the option to choose which operating system you wanted to start... Otherwise, if you dont see that menu, you still might have both OS installed but you would have to edit the master boot record...

NEED WIZ"S HELP- CANT BOOT XP OR VISTA CD FROM DVD DRIVE


Hello,

I'll give a whack at this problem. I think the previous person meant blank drive NOT black drive (that doesn't make sense to me).
I would follow the previous persons in going to BIOS and making sure the first boot device is CDROM. My question to you is whether you've already done this or whether you need assistance with this process. If so, please tell me what computer model you have.

Trying to install xp on a vista


First, have you deleted Vista, or are you trying a dual boot?

Second, you do not have to disable your HDD or you cannot do the installation!

For a step by step procedure to install XP on a Vista computer (dual boot), please check here:
http://www.syschat.com/dual-boot-vista-xp-vista-already-1946.html
or
http://apcmag.com/how_to_dual_boot_vista_and_xp_with_vista_installed_first__the_stepbystep_guide.htm

I do not recommend removing Vista completely,if that is what your laptop/PC came with, as most components and drivers installed will be Vista specific. If you need to have XP, make sure you have all the drivers for XP first.
