WinXP SP3 + Win7 SP1
Posted 05 April 2011 - 07:11 AM
I'm trying to create a multi-bootable DVD which consists of WinXP SP3 & Win7 SP1...
I tried the same by using EasyBoot, but the file size of my DVD exceeds the traditional 4GB DVD-R size.
And I can't reduce the size of my DVD, bcoz XP has already been flushed using nlite & Win7 SP1 is about 4.1 GB (I checked Microsoft's website & confirmed it).
I followed the previous articles posted by my favourite guy, Mr. Shirin, but all in vain.
I created an ISO file using Aero Studio (while following all the instructions), but when I booted it & clicked on "WinXP Setup" or "Win7 Setup", it fails to boot & shows some garbage value.
Please help me in creating one. I need u...

May be i could not understand the problem clearly.
1)_ If the problem is the size of ISO (win 7 source),why do not you delete unwanted versions from windows 7 source ?
2)_ If there is some problem with the kind of software you use for this job (EasyBoot ,aerostudio or ...),please tell us more about your project.

I'll try to clarify as good as possible.
First with your questions:
1)_ I deleted the unwanted versions from Win7 DVD using Microsoft's WAIK. I have only HOME PREMIUM, PROFESSIONAL & ULTIMATE editions (both x86 & x64).
Tell you one thing, the install.wim file in Win7 is different from Vista. Even if you delete a few editions from the Win7's .wim file, its size remains the same.
2)_ No problem with the software (EasyBoot & Aero Studio). And regarding my project, I've already mentioned that I want to create a multi-bootable DVD which consists of WinXP SP3 & Win7 SP1...
NOTE: While doing this project in EasyBoot, my ISO file size went to 4.5GB. I converted this into a dual-layer DVD, but to no help. The problem is when the DVD file size exceeds, WinXP fails to boot from DVD whereas Win7 boots perfectly fine.
So plz help me out
