I'm thinking of a better solution, BartPE. You can roll your own
bootable Windows CD. Anytime I have to update firmware for CD/DVD
drives or something else that is Windows only, I throw this in the CD,
boot off the disc to a preconfigured XP environment and away I go.


Only thing you need is obviously a working Windows box and the XP with SP2 CD.

I would include a link to the ISOs I made, however I made them with
our campus license of XP and don't want an legal trouble.
