Can I install an integrated Win XP from DVD?

Post by chazcon » Wed Dec 26, 2007 5:17 am

Might be a dumb question, I'm new to RyanVM Integrator and want to know this:

I have my Windows XP Pro CD copied to a folder on my HDD.

I will make an integrated disk using that plus the latest UpdatePack, in a separate folder, and burn to DVD.

There should not be a problem with then doing a clean install using that DVD on my system, correct?

Looking forward to enjoying this program as I reformat and reinstall every 6-9 months (old habit from Win 98 days probably)

Cheers

Yes you can, but if you are only adding the latest rvm update pack you should be able to fit it on a cd

Thank you for the reply. I'm past using CDs, it's DVDs or a flash drive these days. I've considered tossing out my floppy, but I do need it once a year to install my RAID drivers :)

Hmm, perhaps that is something that could be added to an RVM integrated disk via AddOns? There is a bit during the Win XP install process where you are prompted to install your RAID drivers from floppy...if that could be added to the RVM disk, what a handy thing that would be.

Cheers.

:shock: you can do that using DriversPacks @ http://www.driverpacks.net/
If you see dinosaurs, stop using drugs. But, if you don't use drugs, GET THE HELL OUT OF THERE!
