Is it possible to make a windows disc, from an OEM install, partition?
What OS? something on these lines?
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.
