How To Create Bootable CD For Windows Operating Systems ?

Yesterday, there was a huge debate between my friend and me about creating a bootable Windows XP CD. Finally, I won. Usually most of us use BBIE or Nero, but now you don’t need them. All you have to have is an application that extracts the boot image from your current Windows XP CD and a CD burning application that is used to create a new bootable CD.
First, create a folder structure to save all the necessary files on the local PC before they go to the burning CD.
Go the drive, create a subfolder XPSP3 CD, and copy the entire contents of the XP CD to D:\XPSP3CD. Enable the option to view all of the hidden files before copying the files to the subfolder.
Now copy the SP2 standalone file to the subfolder that is windowsxp-kb936929-sp3-x86-enu.exe. Now, you can use a file archiver like WinRar. At the same time, you cam make it by going to Start/Run and type in.
D:\XPSP3\windowsxp-kb936929-sp3-x86-enu.exe –x

Now you can get an extracted dialogue box, just extract the files to D:\XPSP3. If you don’t want the original SP3 file, just delete them now.
Now download BBIE and extract the files to a local folder like D:\BBIE and then open the command window and navigate to D:\BBIE and run the command as follows. bbie x: (here x is the optical drive with the XP CD).
Now BBIE will start searching the CD for any available boot images and it will extract them using an image1.bin, image2.bin extension files. After that, there will be one boot image on the XP CD. BBIE can also extract the boot images from ISOs.
Now just change the command as follows
bbie x:\cdimage.iso ( here x is the folder that contains the ISO and cdimage.iso is the filename). If you do this, the image1.bin will be saved in the active folder D:\BBIE.
In order to integrate the service pack, now go the run command and enter the command as follows
D:\XPSP3\i386\update\update.exe /integrate:D:\XPSP2CD

Once you enter the command, the upgrade program will launch and install the service pack to the locally cached CD and confirm the prompt once it is done.
Finally, launch Nero Burning ROM and create a new bootable CD compilation, when you find the compilation properties windows and select the Boot tab.
After this, click on the Image File radio button and browse the image1.bin file, which BBIE extracted. Now under Advanced, tick “Enable Expert Settings”. Now enable “No Emulation” and ensure “Load segment of sectors” is set to “07C0” and change “Number of loaded sectors” to 4.
Now click Ok and add the contents of D:\XPSP2CD to the compilation project. Burn the CD it is enough. Now you can access the Bootable XP CD.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications. The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou
