Windows Server 2003 nlite

I just made myself a nice lite version of Server 2003.

I burn to disk using nLite.

I try and boot from the disk and it comes up with Bootmgr missing.

Whats gone Wrong?

Edit: Could it be because I put the files on a DVD.. the only disk I could find..

At the end of the nlite procedure did you choose to make an ISO image? If not, and you just burned the files using nero to a DVD that's prolly why.

That is what I did, and I burnt the image to disk using nLite.

hmm..i've never tried burning to DVD using nlite, but I know it works using vlite so just assumed it would be the same. Maybe not
