Merge installation CDs

To install Windows like this you simply need to extract all contents from both CD images (or copy all files from regular optical CD disc) to a single folder: Windows Server 2003 R2 CD1 and CD2 merge.png

If asked for "autorun.inf file already exists, replace or skip" select skip.

Select resulting folder in WinToFlash

Don't check the "Use my ISO...", WinToFlash will use your folder as a source.

On the page "Process steps" select "Transfer all folders from original image"
