I know this is an old post...but does anyone know how to do this? I have Toast but sometimes it's quicker to use the OS burner. I just don't like waiting for the disc verifying process to end.

One option I would suggest would be to replace the HDD that's in your MB with a bigger and faster one. Then buy an external enclosure ($10-20) for your existing drive. Agian, just an idea.

That is a fantastic price for a MB. Would that make the final price $599? Where did you buy it at?

I got my non-retail copy of XP on ebay for $30. Just make sure to buy from a reputable seller.
