    Better using XPLite then you can add service packs and mod XP and make it totally automatic on install.

    OMG That was the software I was looking for. I thought it was nero so I intalled nero on my system. This software detects whether it is os installation or not right? :)

    Just burn as image. That's what you want for a bootable disk. Doesn't matter if it's an OS or anything else.

    I had a problem when imgburn and nero were installed on win 7,
    I had to go into imgburn options and change it from "STPI" to the other option, can't remember which. Keep that in mind in case you have a conflict.

    Other than that, Imgburn seems to know everything - try and make it do the wrong thing and it will tell you off and put you right!

    nero sucks on monkey balls. making a bootable iso is easy (you'd just need few tiny files) and you can burn it on win7 it supports isos.
