    Greetings,
    I'm new so I hope I'm posting this in the right place.

    My new PC came with a recovery disk and an OEM XP install disk. The recovery disk installs XP to off the shelf condition. The XP disk of course will give me a "clean" XP install.

    Here's what I would like to do...

    Make a bootable DVD with both the Recovery and OEM XP install versions on it. On boot up with this DVD is it possible to have some sort of menu choice to either recover factory default install or the OEM XP install?

    With the current recovery disk my only options are destructive restore (with all the junk) and system recovery. I would like to add the OEM install disk to this.

    I know... this sounds nuts but how can I do this? Maybe some sort of Autorun.inf?

    How do I burn a bootable DVD with both these disks on it?

    Thanks for your patience and help.

    I hope its possible. But dont know any solutions. May be u can try nLite. Its easier to add features in it and create an install CD.

    Use the software named as "EasyBoot" by EZB Systems. It creates Menus for Bootable CD/DVD. You Can use "Magic ISO" too to create multi-Boot cd/dvds
