How do I know my Windows CD is clean/gold?

XP without SP is around 550MB.
Also, there should be no $OEM$ folder at the root of the CD.
Afaik there should be no winnt.sif file in the i386 folder in a MS CD.
If you have an OEM CD (customized by a manufacturer) it can be used with nlite but it's better to clean customization from it. If you wonder how to clean it, just ask.

I found out I have a clean windows xp but it is scratched...grrr
I tried using nlite on it, but setup says a file is corrupt. Anywhere can I buy one?
Some files will be replaced by service packs. So you may try to copy your CD to the hard drive, then use /integrate to integrate a service pack (look here for the "manual" way).
Btw, do you know which files are corrupted/impossible to copy ?

Just use the Licence on the CD Case
Beg, Steal or Borrow
