I followed the guide on this site for creating a bootable unattended CD but when I try to boot from cd it just sits there! I ran CD Image pro script after following the instructions to a T.

I started out with the Volume Licensing CD (not SP1). I then slipstreamed SP1 into it without problems. I added applications and registry edits as described in the article. I then ran CD Image pro script and created the .iso. I burned it and now it just sits with a blank screen where it should ask to boot from CD. The original VL disk boots up just fine. Do I need to extract the boot files from the Volume Licensing CD to allow my custom CD to boot?

I know you guys can help me!

Well... SP1 checks for a valid VLK when you install it. If you slipstream SP1 into it and you have a "blacklisted" VLK then it will do what you talk about. If you have a valid VLK because you are a Select Partner or a VLK customer then you really shouldn't have a problem.

Slipstream Service Pack 1 first, then the Rollup slipstream, not vice-versa.

I am using the the actual green and copper disk from Microsoft. The company I work for (Hendrick Motorsports) is a Microsoft customer and MSDN subscriber. We use Mobile Automation to keep rogue software installation to a minimum and Microsoft receives monthly reports on what software we install on what machines. I have the actual disk in my hand and a Volume Licensing key obtained from Microsoft for use in installation. What am I doing wrong?

I'm just going to Slipstream SP1a and see if everything is fine so far. If I can boot that disk, then I will do the rollup and so on from there. Do I need to extract the boot files from the actual disk or will the bootfiles in the CD Image Pro script work fine?

I got it to boot - I followed the Elder Geeks guide to the letter and extracted the boot files from the actual CD and named it WXPVOL_EN as on the original. I personalized it with our stamdard software package (Acrobat reader, Norton, reg settings) and it works perfectly! I installed all but two of the hotfixes. I am very pleased!

Thanks guys
