Thanks for the guide SIW2

I managed to create the iso and it booted fine in my laptop and on a virtual system (virtualbox)

SIW,

Just made an account to tell you i tried your method and the iso produced SAYS 'bootable' in imgburn. Am burning now and will let you know if it boots properly.

Just to verify as this will save me some time:

If I run the install executable from my second hard drive, F for example, I can do a clean install to the C drive?

I am using Windows XP and I do not find this CMD prompt to work. I changed it according to my OS.

oscdimg -bC:\DocumentsandSettings\USERNAME\Desktop\expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot.com -h -u2 -m -lWIN_EN_DVD C:\DocumentsandSettings\USERNAME\Desktop\expandedSetup\ C:\7.iso

And it gives me this error

Error: Could not open Boot Sector File "C:\DocumentsandSettings\USERNAME\Desktop\expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot.com"
Error 3: The system cannot find the path specified.

I think it would be easier for users to move the expandedSetup folder and the oscdimg.exe file to the root drive so C:\expandedSetup instead of the user's directory "C:\Documents and Settings\username"... etc to avoid the headaches of typing the correct path.

I believe you're supposed to replace USERNAME with your own username you use to login.

I moved my expandedSetup folder into something easy to remember before I ran his commands (like C:\expandedSetup).
