I searched the forum but couldn't seem to find what I need, so I decided to start a new post (I apologize if this same problem has already been posted previously).
I am using HP Media Center m7160n that didn't came with any OS Disc; moreover, I was asked to create a set of 2 Recovery DVD Discs. On the other hand, I have recently been hacked, so I have re-formatted my computer a couple of days ago; however, I hates it when HP installs all those other craps that sometimes I couldn't get rid off, so I turned to nLite. In the past I had successfully created two versions of Win XP Home SP2 disc by using nLite, so I thought slipstreaming MCE would just be the same, but turned out it was not.
Everything was going fine until the second disc was prompted to be inserted so nLite can copy the CMPNENTS folder over in order for MCE to work, so I inserted the second disc of my recovery disc; however, nLite didn't detect it, so I manually searched for the folder in disc 2 with no luck. I then searched disc 1, didn't find CMPNENTS but found the followings:
The above three files I explicitly searched for because I read from post #7 on this thread and it talked about manually creating the folder: http://www.msfn.org/..._1
Interestingly, all the file names I have seen on this forum ends with CAB_ not CA_, so I have a few questions:
1. I am wondering if I need to change the extension to CAB_?
2. Does this means that my recovery discs cannot be used for slipstreaming MCE SP2?
3. Is there any way to work around this problem?
4. If I decided to give up the MCE edition (ie. not copying over the CMPNENTS folder), will I still be able to install XP Pro and slipstream XP2 into it to create a bootable CD / DVD?
Thanks a lot!
