This project can create a real bootable Windows Live CD/DVD, so you will be able to use full installation of Windows operating system on CD/DVD without installation.
You can use this even if you don't have HDD on specific computer where you boot your disk!
Tested working Windows version list:
Windows XP (5.1 Build 2600 - SP2, SP3) Windows Fundamentals for Legacy PCs (5.1 Build 2600 - SP2) Windows Server 2003 (5.2 Build 3790 - SP1, SP2) Windows Code Name 'Longhorn' (6.0 Build 4051) - I don't have success with this
Possible working Windows version list:
Windows XP (5.1 Build 2600 - SP0, SP1, SP2, SP3) Windows Fundamentals for Legacy PCs (5.1 Build 2600 - SP2) Windows Server 2003 (5.2 Build 3790 - SP0, SP1, SP2) Windows Code Name 'Longhorn' (6.0 Build 3551~4094) Windows Home Server (5.2 Build 4500)
I've tested till now with XP SP3 RTM, Server 2003, LH 4074 (didn't work for me on 3718, 4051)

I've tried with Windows XP SP2 unsuccessfully (both VirtualBox and VMware Player): at the last step, the ISO from ETBoot Builder is not readable by UltraISO and it does not boot into a virtual machine. Can you describe which steps do you do differently from the PDF guide?
Skip steps where you use SelfImage (pic 6 and 7), i.e. after shudown your virtual machine go directly to ETBoot Builder, select for type "all types" in harddisk image and capture vmdk (3gb file, for example: in my documents\virtual machines\your machine.winxphome.vmdk)
