XPSP2 slipstream missing NTLDR

Evening all

I am attempting to create a boot CD slipstreaming SP2. I have an original XP cd and I need to integrate SP2 into it so it will recognize my new Seagate 1T HD. After following all the instructions from http://www.helpwithwindows.com/WindowsXP/winxp-sp2-bootcd.html

using IsoBuster and CDBurnerXP

when I attempt to boot to the CD it says the NTLDR is missing. I open the CD (on another pc) and confirmed the file contained the ntdet and ntldr. I am not good with this type of stuff and am looking for some suggestions on what I should do at this point. My ultimate goal is to simply load XP on my new 1T hard drive.

  1. My preferred method for slipstreaming is by using nLite. There are plenty of tutorials online. I have provided a link below if you are interested.

  2. ty btk1w1 for the link but I would prefer to find out what is causing this to happen and how to go about fixing it. I have spent most of the day trying different programs here and there and none worked. The forums about slipstreaming make it sound like an easy task so I am not sure why I am having such an issue.
  3. NTLDR errors page below.

    The first reasoon they give for this happening is attempting to boot from non-bootable media.

    The link will hopefully help you narrow the problem down to a solution.

  4. That is a cool link TY. I did read over it and book marked it.

    As for my issue I actually tried burning it one last time and i must have checked/un-checked/look at wrong, etc.. something the first time because the integration works fine now.
