I was wondering if there is a way to 'install' an XP Live CD to the hard disk and have it as a boot option in case of an emergency. If it is possible, how would I add it to the boot.ini or preferably GRUB?

Thanks

There are several ways.
You have to consider LiveXP exactly like any other PE 1.x (or BartPE) build.
And consider a partition on your internal hard disk mostly like a partition on external (USB) disk.

With this in mind, start read these:

They should cover your question and most of those that may follow.

Once you have chosen:
between BOOT.INI and grub4dos (NOT GRUB)
between RAMDISK booting or "normal" booting
between \minint or \I386 directory structure

If something it's still not clear feel free to ask for help. (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

BOOT_IMG.cmd Copies WinBuilder LiveXP BootSDI.img Image file to C-HDD or USB-Drive
and makes Entry for boot.ini Menu and GRUB4DOS menu.lst for Booting with PE from RAMDISK
loaded with BootSDI.img File on Harddisk.

LiveXP RAM BootSDI.img file is loading from USB-stick in 5 minutes and from Harddisk in few seconds.
Booting from RAMDISK in 30 seconds.
