Hi All,

I'm trying to create windows XP booatable CD. I copied all I386 files and the creating XP bootdisk using win95bootable. Autoexec batch file will make CD drive as X drive. Here is the script
@echo off
winnt /s:x:\i386 /u:x:\i386\unattended.txt

this gives error saying no space for swap file and setup stops

Can you please help me to solve this problem

The more reliable way to do what you want is to create a boot CD the "Microsoft" way. Here are the general steps; if you need specifics, they can probably be found somewhere here at AppDeploy or I can provide them:

1. copy your original MS media to hard disk
2. optional: "slipstream" the Service Pack you want into the i386 directory
3. rename your answer file to winnt.sif, and place it in your i386 folder
4. reburn these files onto CD
5. to make the CD bootable, extract the microsoft.img file from an original Microsoft CD, and tell Nero or Easy CD to use it as your boot image. If you need the microsoft.img file provided to you, I can send it to you.
6. in Nero or EasyCD, choose "no emulation" as the emulation type, and set the number of boot sectors to 4.
