MDT - Save i386 directory

I'm trying to save a copy of the i386 directory from the C:\minint\source\ folder during the installation process for XP when executed from MDT. I'm using an imported ISO, not a WIM image.

The command I'm trying to use is a command line using "xcopy /S /I C:\minint\source\i386 C:\".
This either fails with the i386 directory not existing or hangs indefinitely, depending on where in the task sequence it is placed. What am I doing wrong?

I dont use MDT, but do you get a GUI mode setup? If so, Hit Shift+F10, and try your copy command there......
