I didn't make it!
So, got a new laptop with vista installed BF2 Installed latest BF2 patch (1.41) downloaded Daemon tools 4.09HE downloaded a mini imaged blh-bf2.mds from gamecopyworld. mounted image with daemon tools. Game ran fine online for 3 days on a few different servers. Tried out the single player, tinkered around a bit. Went back to online play and now any server with punkbuster i get a permanent guid ban. I understand why it bans me, however ive read of many many ppl using this same method to just run the image instead of loading your dvd every time. Anyone know what triggered it?

Umm, running the mini-image from gamecopy world?
PB is a cheat prevention system that is being updated regularly, they were bound to pick up on this sooner or later, you were unlucky enough to get caught.
wont work if you're using any daemon tools to burn the image, they would consider that cheating, or what apocalyspe_kid said, if you want to play the game the way it is meant to be play i suggest that you reinstall it
