Boot options missing file version suppression checkbox

Recommended Posts

I ran back through several installers in my collection before I found that cdbxp_setup_4.3.8.2631_x64.exe has the necessary options and gave me a bootable Windows XP SP3 install CD.

 

Versions that didn't work:

 

cdbxp_setup_4.5.0.3717.exe

cdbxp_setup_4.5.2.4478.exe

No. If I burn with 4.3.8, the options are available but the disk doesn't verify. It does start to boot and then fails with corrupted files. If I burn with 4.5.4.5143, the verify is successful, but the boot loader can't find files on the CD. (It's a well-known issue with the MS boot loader, which assumes the disk lacks the ";1" version numbers in file names.)

 

Should the options be missing? Were they deliberately removed? Or do they get removed at runtime as a result of some mysterious property of my system?
