I put the recovery cd that came with my computer in the dvd drive and tried to copy all the files to my computer but even when I click show all files, not all of them will copy over. I have tried the drag and drop method and I tried letting nlite make a copy but nlite told me I needed to find the 'cmpnents' folder to make sure my media center is installed properly. I wanted to make a slipstream so I can do a sfc/scannow without having to change my source path. I don't want to make any changes to the registry. My recovery cd has 1.17 GB and what I am able to copy over is only 1.11 GB. I have it set to show all hidden folders. I don't know what I am doing wrong.

Use this program: http://www.imgburn.com/ (IMGBurn) to get all the files correctly off the DVD, put them all into a folder in your root directory (example, C:\XPCD). After this, nLite to said directory, and use this file (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=5b33b5a8-5e76-401f-be08-1e1555d4f3d4&displaylang=en) for SP3. Then once the ISO is made (don't use nLite to burn the CD) use IMGBurn again to burn it.
