I did try the cdrom afterwards ,as far as it was bootable and it setup untill the first setup screen .I do not know if it installs , and the question of working with the original key and all the rest (activation and so) .
The only thing I probably will need it for is for eventually running sfc /scannow

I dont need to reinstall but I want to know that I could!

I tried slipstreaming to my XP Pro Corp (legit) and my XP Pro (regular version).

I do not mind because I will never need it to setup , as I never needed the ones I made with w2k sp2 neither.

As far as it not asking you to press any key too boot is a different story. Im taking it you used the sector 20 from the win 2kpro for your xp pro aswell. If you use the xp pro sector20.bin it won't ask you to press any key at all...atleast mine don't it just goes straight to setup up like the diskem1x.bin.
Has anybody tried changing the product key on a that certain corp. pro release to install and it working out??? Ive read where you can update/change the license key with a keygen and using the update license scheme...but will that work on install ???
If it don't work on a plain install then you'd have to install regular winxp...then slipstream in xp. Again i have not got a chance to get it yet. I had a chance yesterday but it just wouldnt come fast enough (17k ;-/)

But i have succesfully used WINISO ver5.3 to make a ISO's of the original OEM disk and a Corporate CD, removed all the files from the original and imported the slipstream files and $oem$ directory (for the fully automated install) to the root of the cd and created my install disks from the ISO's i was able to save from WinISO.
Saves alot of time since I have to install the O/S on 5 computers a week. Makes for a fast recovery also.
Thanks to the tech guide for leading the way for US.
If anyone has any fixes or reasons why CDRwin is crashing at the end of the creation process on the XP cd creation, using the boot.bin I extracted from XP and the one that is on thetechgiudes web site for W2k. I would appritate it greatly.

getting multiple errors like can't find the SP1.cab even though my txtsetup.ini is setup properly.
i then noticed that it now says that my pro install is home????
well i'm still working on it and will update if needed.

tried it, works perfectly also generated office xp pro key and activated the product over the internet, works fine, well unless m$ knocks on my door sometime, which I believe is unlikely to happen because the keygen generates keys which they cannot distinguish from their own.

you don't need to change the key anyhow
Posted 17 September 2002 - 08:51 PM
also it sounds like you are using the same .dat file to boot off of for both installs

I think this is not an isolated incident and if you tried it you get the same.

wouldn't microsoft wonder about a "volume" license key that it never issued being used for activation?
