Slipstreaming Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Create Bootable CD

I saw this article and have tried it, but having issues creating the bootable CD.
http://www.helpwithwindows.com/WindowsXP/winxp-sp2-bootcd.html

I was able to integrate the SP2 files without any issues, I got ISOBUSTER and was ok there too, but these intructions are for Easy CD creator 6, but I have Roxio creator business edition, version 10.1.177

I was able to create the CD, but when I tried to load into a computer with a new hdd (IBM T42 laptop), I got error code 4, unable to boot from CD.

I need to find a way to create this bootable CD with Roxio creator business edition.

I am constantly building laptops and desktop with Windows XP SP1 and then installing XP-SP2, but would like to have this as one bootable CD, so I can save time down the road.

Not only that, but if this works I assume I can install bigger HDD since WXP SP1 only recognizes up to 130GB HDD.

Any ideas on how to do this or anyway I can create an image with XP and SP2 together to build desktops and laptop?

You need to have boot sector on your CD. Can you verify that your CD ISO you created with ISOBUSTER is bootable. Can you extract boot sector from your original CD with ISOBUSTER, and add it to your ISO file?
Consider creating your boot CD-s with nlite www.nliteos.com

This is what I have done...

 After you install IsoBuster, you can choose to use only the product's free functionality for what we want to do, IsoBuster will look like the image below (you need to have your original Windows XP CD in the CD-ROM drive).

Start to extract the boot loader from the original Windows XP CD. Using IsoBuster, select the "folder" Bootable CD, and right-click Microsoft Corporation.img. From the menu choose Extract Microsoft Corporation.img, and extract it to the folder on your hard drive where you have your Windows XP files (D:\XP-CD in my case).

Let me know if I am missing your question/suggestion.  I must admit I am new to this slipstream and it is my first time ever creating a bootable CD, so you can consider my wet behind the ears on this topic.

The instructions are for Nero not Easy CD creator? You used isobuster to extract the boot sector of CD (*.img).
Other thing that you are missing is the CD boot is selected as option in Nero. On first nNero screen you can notice that boot image created in Isobuster is added to Nero to create boot sector. Do you have such option in Roxio?

Looks ok with me as far I can see, did you do this last time when you burned your CD?

I have a brand new IBM T400 and I will try to use the CD that I created and see what happens.
I will make sure the BIOS on the HDD is set to Compatibility mode instead of ACHI.

Something is wrong with boot cd settings in Roxio. I recomend that you try nlite www.nliteos.com, it's free and easy to use and it will burn CD image directly on CD. I use it and I can provide you help, take a look at http://www.nliteos.com/guide/part1.html
Just copy your windows cd into folder (new, not in folder where you already streamed SP2), point the nlite to that dir, he will find what version is that, select only Integrate Service pack and create bootable Cd. Point the nlite to sp2 file you downloaded. Nlite will slipstream service pack for you and create boot iso. On the last screen you can choose to write directly to CD.
