Sandi,
If you still have your completed iso file, how big is it if you do a properties on it?
Mine is 533 MB (559,710,208 bytes) for the home version.
And it's interesting, but that is the same size as the xpsp2 cd after I make it.

Hi Trapper,
I think the AutoStreamer did it's job making the iso file that is supposed to be a cd boot file, so it should take care of all the boot stuff for you.
Then, I used Easy cd creator five to burn the cd. I've seen several web pages that said if you don't use later versions, you won't make a good boot disk, so I don't know, but it makes me suspecting? The cd's appear to burn successfully.
I have two computers that both seem to recognize that the cd is supposed to boot, but then, so far, all boot type cd's I've made fail, the most usually thing is can't find the ntldr file, which is where it is supposed to be on the cd.

It hasn't on mine,yet. :O) I've tried twice. I think something else may be
wrong.
It did appear to work without a hitch, AutoStreamer that is.
