Hi mrx1,

You're missing a lot of important files in your source, I assume this is an OEM (supplied by PC manufacturer) reinstall disc or ??. You need an untouched, retail version of XP SP2+ (google for downloads) as it comes from M$ or if slipstreamed, it has to be done per M$ instructions here.

Once you have a working build (ISO boots normally in VM or from CD), there are different methods for setting up a bootable USB/UFD, the simplest is to use wimb's Make_USB tool which uses the ISO directly as a boot image.

First thanks amalux for your concern, what i am trying to basicly is to crate livexp source inorder to setup xp from it using my 4gb usb, this xp version is my laptop oem so i guess i will not be useful.
also i would like to ask about the missing bootsdi.img supposed to be located in winbuilder\iso\ram\i386, i did not have ram\i386 in the iso folder, is it because of the defect in xp source or we use anthor program.

Hi mrx1, would you please edit the title on the topic that you have open to something a bit more explicit?

This really helps others to find it and read the solution afterwards. Thank you.

If you don't have a "proper" source, try building yourself one.

You don't need another program, if you supply correct source, winbuilder does the rest :confused1:
