Does that make any sense?

I have made my own versions - but I haven't done it exactly as described above.

I may give it a go now.

I might try it with Vista because I have just captured a sysprepped install.wim of that.

If you download the iso and open it up, it will look exactly like your pic. You don`t create the files and folders, Microsoft does. As everyone has ask what are you trying to do ?

I think he is doing it for fun and as a learning experience.

What is wrong with that?

Nothing "wrong" with that at all. Of course, he could tell us and then people wouldn't have to guess.

Knowing "why" someone wants to do something usually makes it easier to better advise them as to "how" to do it.

Windows XP Professional x32

First, thank you all for you advices and suggestions.
Second, I still use Windows XP and I'm satisfied with it for now. I plan to change from XP to Win 7 maybe next year, not yet.
I remember I found a few yeras ago on Internet site where located all files (with option for download each of them) which included in installation folders for OS XP, Vista (maybe Win 7). Now i forget what's the site. I'm sure there is some site on Internet like that.
I know I can download complete ISO, extract it and then have all files, but i think there's site with individual files from ISO with download option. If somebody know that site let me know.

Thank you.

When you're ready to migrate to Win7 on the XP machine, buy an Upgrade version which will include the disk. Clean Install Windows 7
