    I think that the zip file that you've posted is intended for WinXP SP3. Because when i used my None SP3 WinXP CD to create the ISO, before the installation begins I get a message "Please insert the disk labeled Windows XP Pro SP3 CD into Drive A: "

    Do you have the edited files for WinXP SP2 or WinXP?

    Thank you!

    hey question, When I try to boot it tells me that file atiide.sys cannot be found? is there any way around this? or better yet , where can I find this file to replace it in my iso?

    and just to toss this out there, I really am not sure as to what I'm doing when people get overly technical. please you may need to "dumb it down" for me. Thanks.

    Hi, I thought I has posted this question but I realize I must not have hit post reply....

    Anyway I am working on a Mac and through Parallels I have made a dvd disc of the iso with the correct files that were posted here for Windows XP SP3. I have a Macbook AIR so I'm having to remotely upload this on to the external harddrive from another macs disk drive... this is all really complicated and I've gotten really far but now when I try to load it on to the external harddrive my parallels wont get past trying to set up the "Setup" part of downloading the OS. I think this is probably bc the edited files that were posted on here are no good. If any one has advice or would like to make fun of me, feel free. Thanks!

    PS has anyone had success using the edited files that were posted on here? Just wondering, thank you.
