XP Error - Wrong CD inserted ?
Suddenly I get the following Message, when the XP CD is required, for a Repair etc.
" You have inserted the wrong CD ( i.e. a different windows product Cd than the version installed ). Please insert The Windows XP Professionel Service Pack 1 CD ".
This is strange because it's the CD I used when I installed XP, its XP Pro Corp. with SP1 integrated. Anyone know of a fix to the problem, seems like an error in the registry.

Just to let you know ( maybe somebody, get the same error and can use the Info ) that I found the course of the error.
I spend 4 - 5 hours today trying to find a website mentioning that problem and finally I succeded when finding the following .........
" The error occur if the file " win51ip.sr1 " ( it's in the XP Sp1 .exe file) is missing from the Root of the Slipstreamed CD, the file prevent the installation from asking for "The Windows XP Professionel Service Pack 1 CD ".
To check if that was the case, I copied the XP CD to a folder on my HD - unpacked the SP1 file and copied the win51ip.sr1 file to the Root of that folder, burned the CD and rebooted.
After rebooting I did a test to check if the Error occured. Inserted the CD in the drive and tried to Run " sfc/scannow " ( have failed before ) and Jubii no error message about a wrong CD.
Have a nice Day / Evening
