You may have to specify all the attributes at once:   attrib  -s -h -r  $WIN_NT$.~BT

dir /a shows all, whether it's S or H

That's right. For some reason it did not work when I tested it.
However, listing with attrib has its pro's, like seeing the attributes in one go.

thanks for the help guys. i'll test it again and let you guys know the result. i remember doing attrib -s -a -r -h and dir/a. can't show. but the folder does exist as it's in boot.ini and it will boot to that winxp installation temp folder after i restart

but i'll test again to confirm. stay tuned
