i think i found what the problem is, the cd is missing 500k of info. I think the burn program im using isn't doing a good burn or transfer.

im going to try this tomorrow.

Once you get a working cd, yes use a ntfs format. Much more reliable and secure.

Being un-p.c. with a pc

What are you trying to burn? If a copy of Windows I use Nero 5.5 at work and 6.0 at home. It burns fine. I have burned copies of everything regarding data with no prob. Make sure your burner is updated with current drivers and same for the software. When that fails then start looking at other things, including software.

+1 on NTFS though. FAT32 was fun but not as stable. Being a gamer I need stability. Can we make some women NTFS and no so FAT32? lol

Back in the day, clonecd could make perfect copies of it too. The problem with the cd that you have, is unless it has a legit license you wont be able to get sp1 of the bat, you will have to download a key changer and a valid key for sp1, then you still won't be able to get sp2 untill you find yet another key. And then you still won't get the regular security updates. It might just be less of a headache to buy OEM Windows XP. XP pro full oem is around $160, home is around $110.

the one i got is a iso version called 8 in 1 not much a fan of xp. But if i fix someones computer, they usually have XP.

when i view the iso that the original creator made. It states, he created a script where it edits the bios. That it resets the date and fools the software.

I read an XP book about xp only allowing so many upgrades. The first install, the user needs to contact MS then they get an ID. Then they can upgrade their computer 5? times with different video cards/sound/hard drives etc...


Im going to try again with burning the CD. I burned it twice with the same software and it has the same error. Im going to use another burn software, or convert the ISO to Neros version. I did the undisk but i forgot what happened. I know it lets me view it. With winimage, it uncompressed everything and it turned into 3 gigs.


So stressful like trying to recover my 170meg harddrive while running doublespace and win 95 with 9 megs of ram

also winiso works great, but I think you have to pay for that.

i tried a different CD burner and it was able to burn the iso correctly. I have to look on my other harddrive know what program i used.


Does it state anyplace where the 30 day trial remainder is located? Or how do i know if this script is really beating the system.


thanks
