Hi.

I need to make a bootable rescue disk so that I can restore my computer. I have made the backup image using Drive Image XML but I can't make the bootable CD using Bart PE because my Windows CD is OEM, from Dell. Bart PE needs a windows cd slipstreamed with SP2, which I can't do because it's OEM, and if I could it probably would not work anyway, due to the OEM thing.

So, is there any way that I can make a bootable rescue CD using my OEM windows CD?

Thanks.

I am nearly certain that my XP Home SP2 disc that came with my PC when I bought it was an OEM disc, nonetheless I just made a bootable Slipstreamed SP3 version from it using Nlite which you can get from the following link, http://www.nliteos.com/ It is very easy to use and does the whole thing for you.
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA770T-UD3, CPU: AMD Athlon II X3 450 Processor, Memory: OCZ 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz,Graphics: PowerColor HD 5750 1GB GDDR5,
PSU: Corsair 430W CX PSU 4x SATA 1x PCI-E, Hard Drive:Samsung SpinPoint F3 500GB Hard Drive SATAII 7200rpm 16MB Cache.

OK, thanks, I'll try that but I'm not sure that SP3 will work, it did say SP2.
