    Hey guys. I need to burn windows XP to a boot disc so I can install it on a new harddrive. I've never used nero before and have no idea on how to use it. I tried a few times and looked at a few EDUs but still failed.
    Any help? :x:

    Your legally purchased copy of XP is already bootable.

    ...and if for some reason it's not bootable, you can use nLite (www.nliteos.com) to pull out garbage from the install files, install service packs and other patches, and build a bootable ISO image that you can burn onto a new disc.

    Ah. See, we don't like to help people steal shit; not so much because we're all saints, but because we'd rather not get shut down for aiding piracy.
