XP Pro Bootable CD

Dear fellow Windows users,
Is there a Microsoft approved method for creating an XP bootable CD?

I've seen various quite complex suggestions on the Web for doing this but
wondered whether there is a standard, recommended MS way.

Many thanks,

Tony

All Microsoft Windows XP CDs are already bootable.
The trick is to open your BIOS and set your CD Drive
as the first bootable device and the hard drive as the
second bootable device.

All Microsoft CDs for *installing* Windows XP are bootable.

If you want a bootable CD that will *run* Windows XP or a subset
thereof then Microsoft does not have anything available.

The most popular method of doing this is Bart's PE Builder

Good luck

The Windows XP Pro disc is already bootable.
Perhaps you need to change the boot priority of your drives?
