Hello,

I am trying to burn a XP OS so I can install on my sons computer I put together for him. I cannon't get the CD to boot when I fire up the machine.

I burned as an ISO image. Is there something I am not doing, or any reason the disc is not booting.

If anyone can think of something I might be missing or if you can be any help at all. Please reply.

Thank you in advance.

:)

You do realize that you can't activate that copy if the key is already in use on another system, right?

Since you're not an OEM or a Volume License user, that "license" will also come with a disk. What's the point of worrying about this one? You need the new CD-Key to install anyway.
