  1. OK. So I did some testing (that's what this site is all about right?). When I did an XP Pro slip with SP3 ONLY, I found there were NO errors (SUPRISE!!). Everything was as you would expect. So I guess without anyone replying to my original email, that the answer is; YES, it is normal to have errors in the error log, particularly when you have removed parts of Windows and added other things as well. So to all you fellow newbies out there, don't be too concerned with errors in the log, I think it just means that your slipstreaming is working as it should. PS. Then again, I could have this totally wrong. Please reply if that is the case. Dohh!
  2. Can anyone help me out with this please Sorry if this has been asked before, but I have searched under error log and nuhi talks about a clean error log. Mind you that is in the context of slipstreaming XP with SP3. Perhaps he didn't remove any items as part of that testing. Remove Components Broken But I get heaps of error lines, a lot saying the same thing
  3. Can anyone tell me please if the following errors in setuplog.txt are normal after installing an nLited XP Pro SP3 install? Seems to be many which go on and on and on... 01/10/2008 14:26:10.961,d:\xpsp\base\ntsetup\syssetup\log.c,133,,The system file named [c:\windows\system32\] could not be copied into the DLL cache. This file may be necessary to maintain system stability. 01/10/2008 14:26:10.961,d:\xpsp\base\ntsetup\syssetup\log.c,133,,The system file named [c:\windows\system32\] could not be copied into the DLL cache.

  4. Thankyou Arie for your lengthy and detailed reply. Perhaps you could help me further? 1) What is the fundamental advantage of say switchless installers running at T13 and installing a program using RunOnce after first boot? Is it a question of compactness (is that a word) or it is a question of preference or simplicity? Is this whole thing a hobby or an art form (or both)? 2) I guess that Update Packs, because they are integrated before install, are nicely compacted and the Windows "footprint" is smaller. Is that correct? Jack
  5. I have been trawling all over MSFN forums looking for a simple explanation of the difference between Hotfixes and Switchless Installers and when and where they are used? In the past I am pretty sure I was able to add switchless installers to the Hotfixes part of nLite (wasn't I)?? The guides seem to be out of date and don't cover the basic concepts. Specifically I would like to know: 1) At what point in the slipstreaming/installation process are the various hotfixes, addons, switchless installers etc integrated (are they integrated)? 2) What types of packages eg .exe, .cab, .rar, 7z are able to go where in nLite. 3) If I have programs that I wish to install after first boot, do I add these to the Value Add folder and add to the ISO image? 4) And what about RunOnce? Where does that fit into the scheme of things I have looked at the "Unattended Guide" but I want to be able to know how to use nLite. Sorry for the dumb questions - hence the need for a "For Dummy's Guide" Please help a dumb newbie Jack
  6. I put in the XP pro key as this is the one I'm installing. But I have to put the other disc (XP home) in momentarily so it can authenticate that I am upgrading "legally" as I have an upgrade copy of XP pro. Problem is this is a pain and prevents me from doing an unattended install. Any ideas? I found this web site which is kind of on the same track, but not quite: http://www.heise.de/ct/english/05/12/148/ </a> Please can someone help?? Regards Jack
  7. Hi there My issue is this: 1) I have a retail copy of XP home 2) I also have a copy of XP professional UPGRADE 3) I have XP SP3 ready for slipstreaming. 4) I use nLite for slipstreaming. I would like to be able to slipstream XP professional with SP3, but when I do, and go to install it, the installation routine asks for the XP home disc for verification. Is there a simple way to get around this so that I may do an unattended install? Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere Thanks for your help in this regard. Jack
