Default Need a non bart boot CD for drive image xml

Hi.

I want to make an image of my hard drive as per the instructions in the article on this site "Never reinstall windows again" The problem is that I can't make the bart PE boot disk because my windows XP installation disk is OEM. I did try and it warned me that my disk was OEM and that that may cause problems and it was right.

So I would like to know if there is another way that I can get a bootable CD that will allow me to restore my drive image xml image.

Thanks.

In other boot cd's you may not be able to inject plugins as easily as in BartPE.
Can you get a XP cd from somewhere (not OEM)? You just need to copy the entire content in a folder and use that when creating the Bart PE (no installation required).

I'm not sure if I can find someone with a non oem xp disk but if I can I will give it a try. For now I think that I will try one of the other recomended drive imageing programs and see if I can get a linux boot CD to work.

Thanks.
