1. Looks like building the CD for XP is ok on a Vista machine, so I charged ahead. Please tell me if this is not a good idea based on the additional questions.
2. I have an XP SP1 cd from a 5-year-old Gateway system. Do I need to slipstream (whatever that means) SP2 so my boot CD will work on the problem SP2 machine?
2a. It would be REALLY nice if somewhere on this site, someone would explain what slipstream means. Wikipedia is no help. Reading the Slipstream page on this website is confusing (probably because I can't find a definition of what it really is.)
2b. To slipstream the XP SP1 CD to SP2, do I need to run the process on my good old XP SP2 system?
3: Burning... I know the How To Build instructions said, "-"Burn to CD", an excellent option, please use this unless you have an other preferred ISO burning application." But does that mean I need to stick a blank CD into the drive before I start? The guy recommending this site said I'd need a good CD Burner -- I have Roxio, he said that was ok. But what do I copy to the CD... everything in the BartPE folder (590 MB), or the UBCD4WinBuilder.iso (587 MB)?
4. I know this is long... If you're still reading, do you care to comment on the build warnings and errors:
4a: Warning: building from an OEM version of Windows can mean trouble...
4b: Warning: creating filesystem that does not conform to ISO-9660
4c: Warning: Creating ISO-9660: 1999 (version 2) filesystem.
4d: Warning: ISO-9660 filenames longer than 31 may cause buffer overflows in the OS.
4e: Test Unit Ready command failed, exception 8, status 0, text 'CStarBurn_ScsiTransportSPTI::ExecuteCDB(): Command failed.
Thanks for any and all help! I'll really appreciate any help at all.
