Windows 8 Pro x64


I set myself a project to create a multi-boot DVD so, if I boot from it, it asks me whether I would like to install:

Windows XP
Windows 7

If I load the .ISO File in VirtualBox and asks what I want to do:

x = load Windows XP Setup
7 = load Windows 7 Setup

If I press 7 to load Windows 7 setup it says:

CDBOOT: Couldn`t find BOOTMGR

If I press x to load Windows XP setup it says:

CDBOOT: Couldn`t find NTDLR

I created this Bootable Disk in MagicISO! In my DVD Drive I have a "7" Folder containing windows 7 DVD setup files and I also have a "Xp" folder containing windows xp DVD setup files! I also have an mboot folder; mboot.bin file; mboot.mbt file

Please help me and tell me what to do!

I would just put 7 on it`s own dvd and XP on it`s own cd.
