the wife's laptop again. the backup cd is an image of windows media edition plus dozens of unwanted trial programs and mostly unnessary software. to make a windows cd for repairs etc is it just a case of looking for and copying the i386 file from the root directory to a cd or is there more to it.
can any one point me to a web or give simple steps on she could do this please so that she has a decent windows cd in the event of any future problem.
thanks for the link, but I got lost trying to make sense of it. My aim was to copy the windows files from the C drive to a cd to use as a repair windows cd for any future use. but I'm lost on how to get started on this other than buying a retail copy.
click here or you can use this and just extract the i386 file and the sp2 and make it bootable and burn it to disc. I did it this way with an HP disc I just extracted windows and sp2 and it worked fine.
