Disaster Recovery of Windows XP to CDR


Recommended Posts

On multiple attempts, I have yet to burn a readable CD, to be used for “Disaster Recovery” for Windows XP Professional. This is not an issue related to the burn process it’s self. On testing the Disaster Recovery CD by booting from it, the boot process always hangs during “Windows Setup”. “Setup is loading files”, “Standard IDE/ESDI hard disk controller”. Different Disaster Recovery CDs stop at the same place, even though they were created from different ISO creation passes. Could it be that there is some form of copy protection on the Windows XP Professional master disk, causing the Disaster Recovery disk to fail? How do I get past this problem to make a usable Disaster Recovery CD ROM?
