instead of making an image and then burning that image to a cd, you might just want to burn a copy on the fly.
windows xp pro and most microsoft merchandise dont have any sort of copy protection whatsoever...just the new product activation and the old product id thing going on.
also, you shouldnt need a powerful program like alcohol of clonecd to create and burn an image.
if you have nero, just burn it straight. if you use alcohol or clonecd, dont use any special profile...just do it direct. hope this helps and isnt too confusing.
