I finally got nLite configered with SP2 and to be copied as an ISO and it booted up and worked--mostly. It failed to be an unattended install as I had configured it , but instead was about 50% functional in this mode. I am still satisfied as I checked for the normal corruptions and none were present (when compared with a TI10 image onto a DVD). The strange thing was its placement of the 1.91 gigs of XP right in the middle of the partition, as viewed by the defragmentation utility: This is XP PRO moving a partition via the defragmenter!!! This has only been the second time this has happened to me ( in well over 50 clean installs). It was an uncorrupted 'copy' (surprising as Disk director 10 often leaves corruption after a "copy partition" operation). Amazing.
