    Hi,

    I’ve just slipstreamed my copy of XP Pro with SP2, and plan to burn it to CD. However, the final size is over 800Mb, which doesn’t fit onto a CD.

    With that in mind, I thought about burning it onto DVD. Unfortunately, the version of Nero I have doesn’t support Boot DVDs, so I downloaded a trial version of one from the web. This software looks for a boot image (.IMG) file, which I’ve extracted from the original CD.

    After I burn the DVD, and try to boot from it, it comes up with a “Cannot boot from CD. Error 5” or similar.

    Has anyone any ideas what this means, or of a way to create a bootable DVD?

    Cheers
    MJ
