Ah, darn - I read your post too fast and misled you with my reply. Sorry about that. Blame it on the fact that I only got a few hours of sleep last night thanks to installing Windows 7 x64.
The EXE in the three files you downloaded from DR simply builds a folder using the other two files as the source. This new folder is called "expandedSetup" and it contains an OS install DVD folder and file hierarchy. After that folder was built, I did NOT
run the SETUP.exe therein.
Instead, I used IMGburn to turn that folder into an ISO file and indicating in IMGBurn that the ISO would be bootable. The “expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot.com
” was the bootable image filename source that ImgBurn needs.
Once the ISO was created, I burned it to DVD and booted from that, then stepped through the install. From there my previous post's chronology picks up the story.
