Can't finish installation with my bcd.iso file
Authored by: oldpbg415guy on Jan 24, '07 02:03:25PM

I have tried to burn several bcd.iso files to install Win XP Home on my version of Parallels, but I keep getting the "insert Win XP Second Ed disc into drive A:" each time I enter installation.

I've created both a win51ip.sp2 and a win51ic.sp2 file as described previously. I've made sure (In Mac OS X) that each of these files does NOT have a .txt attached. I placed both these files in the folder: \bcd\cds\winxphome\files before creating the bcd.iso file in Virtual PC/Win XP Home on my Powerbook.
I then copied the bcd.iso to my wife's new Macbook and told Parallels to use this image file.

Is it a problem that I also have this folder: \bcd\cds\winxppro?
I do get some sort of error during the bcd process that says it can't create an ISO 9099 or something compatible file without the "roadie" attachment or something. I assumed that was not a problem.
