Step 7B: Create the bootable WinXP SP2 CD Con't

Now go to 'file\project properties.' On this screen, 'file system' should be set to 'Joliet' and 'physical format of disk' to 'mode 1: CD-ROM.' Now go to the 'file filter' tab and uncheck both 'do not add hidden' and 'do not add system files.' Ensure that the setting at the top is on 'all files.' Click 'OK.'

In the 'select source' pane, navigate to your 'D:/XPCD' directory and highlight all files and folders. Click the 'add to project' arrow to move these files onto the CD. Remove the 'Microsoft corporation.IMG' file from the bottom pane, then hit the 'burn to disk' button to create your CD.

In the 'record setup' screen, choose the 'record' and 'disk-at-once' options, then create the CD. You should now have a usable Windows XP install CD with Service Pack 2!
