    Hi,

    I was thinking XP or Vista, where the hdd has a recovery partition, or the actual 'active' OS & from one of those make a Windows disc, that would install the OS. I know you would need the contents of the I386 folder + drivers, but how to make it bootable?

    Hi Rico, how have you been?

    A couple of years ago I was able to make a working XP disk following the instructions here. http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r19133441-Make-your-own-Windows-XP-CD

    It's probably best to read the entire thread if your going to do this. If I remember right it wasn't that long of a read.

    This disk didn't have any of the custom drivers but I think you can use the disk you make from the instructions above and then use nlite to add the drivers and make a custom XP install disk. If you don't want to do that you can always install your drivers after installing XP.

    Good luck!
