Using wincd3.8d also tried nero 5. I am very sure that I followed your instructions to the letter.
byte at address 0057: is 13 on original and 14 on bootable.
on sector 18 the sector is almost blank on the original, but has alot of random data on bootable
on sector 19 original says microsoft corp etc. bootable's sector 19 looks like originals sector 18
on sectory 20 the original has much data, bootable's sector 20 (this is the one I though we copied) has Arnes boot record and is almost blank.
My understanding of hex and boot sectors is slim, but since we copied bin of sector 20 should they not be the same on both discs?
Also how does the "load segment 07C0 (hex)" relate to the header info in sector view of "00 02 20 01"? I would think these would both be refering to the same address location of sector 20, but I am losing the corralation

There are more, and several that you must have a subscription to access. Maybe if I ever get this down to a smooth process I'll write it up and send it Josetann's way.....

on one of the update it said the new bios would fix the win2k boot disk.
after flashing and booting with the win2k (which i though it was bad) the setup screen came up, no errors
maybe thats the problem many of you are experienceing

I did note in the how-to that you may be able to use EasyCD or Nero now, since they allow you to make a bootable cd without emulation. I haven't tried it personally and haven't heard of anyone trying it and succeeding...so if you try that and it fails, just use CDRWIN (at least to make the first iso, then you can use whatever program you want to burn that iso).

file over and it works fine...

Not trying to sound rude, because I am honestly curious. If you're copying it somewhere else, like the root directory, and it works; that could help some of these people out.

I am currently running Windows NT on my HP Burner with Easy CD Creator. Do I just install CDRWIN alongside my version of Easy CD Creator and it will work fine? Or do I have to remove my version of Easy CD Creator (I hope not)? I also noticed that the download version of CDRWIN is a 30 day trial, will this do to complete the bootable process? Is this the version everybody else is using?
Also, the version of win2k that I'm using is from the MSDN, and the CD is not bootable. I'm not sure if there is a boot.bin file on this CD (will check). I usually have to CD to the correct path whenever I do an install (which is boring). This process will surely help me out a lot. The information on your page is amazing. I am definitely planning on trying the slipstreaming and bootable CD as soon as I receive a response from you.
For slipstreaming, can I do all this copying/extrating on my NT machine that has the burner, or do I have to do this on a machine running win2k pro and then copy the files over to the burner machine.
