    Hello. I need a XP iso to download. I have my cd and box w key. But when I try installing it gets to about 40% and gives me a error about copying wbdbase.nld. after googing I see it could be from a bad dvd reader. So I tried cleaning that and the disc. same result. I have just tried using imgburn to copy the disc and burn to usb but i am getting a unreadable sector error or something. Any help would be appreciated.

    I have XP Pro SP2 and it's the gold cd says student edition 2004. I am guessing my key will only work for this exact one so need the iso.

    Sorry one last question. What is the best free program to copy the iso to usb? I don't see that option on imgburn.

    Thanks. Unfortunately I tried iso to usb for hours and everytime it would get started with burning to the usb the program would freeze and not respond.


    A new problem now...I burned to the usb but when I boot with it all I get is a black screen with a white flashing line in the top left corner?
