  1. hmm this thread has grown and your program has progressed, thats nice. But it seems that the new version doesn't work for me. The old version from the quote below however works. If you're wondering what doesn't work, after installation is done and I'm trying to boot without USB it says hal.dll is missing.
  2. btw while we are at it I have a question regarding nlite+USB Sticks. nlite has a feature "RunOnce" to run commands after first install. And it usually gets it's "Source Drive info" from the registry and it tells the CD/DVD drive letter from where the installation CD is. for /f "tokens=3" %%i IN ('reg query HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup /v "SourcePath" ^| findstr "REG_SZ"') do set SOURCE=%%i But the SourcePath is set to A:\ when using USB-stick instead of a CD/DVD. Is there any way of determining the SourcePath of the USB-stick? And another thing i noticed that when booting GRUB4DOS "First part of Windows XP Professional setup from partition 0" is the set to default. I just think that it would be better to have "Second part of XP Professional setup+Start it first time from part 0" as the default to autoboot after 30 seconds. The reason is if like you are about to start a new installation it's most likely you are monitoring the screen to start the setup and then you can manually select "First part". And then you start the install and format the C: drive or whatever.. And after that it's mostly unattended I think. It copies a bunch of files and then it reboots. After reboot it would be good if GRUB4DOS runs the second part without user intervention after 30 seconds. That way you don't have to monitor your installation. Of course I know this can be done by setting "default 1" in menu.lst. But I thought perhaps this can be changed in your next version?
  3. I actually installed Windows with the old version, I edited the DOSNET.INF first of course.. But I tested the TXTsetup with this new one (with the old DOSNET.INF) and it works.
  4. 1.4.5 Final I think. btw this latest one fixed the quotation marks issues but introduced a new error: 2008/08/07 03:29:51- ERROR!!!----F:\I386\Bootfont.bin could not be copied to D:\Private\Projekt\USB\WinSetupFromUSB\TEMP\$WIN_NT$.~BT\
  5. The new version mostly works except for 2 important files: 2008/08/06 22:56:20- ERROR!!!----F:\I386\ntdll.dll could not be copied to D:\Private\Projekt\USB\WinSetupFromUSB\TEMP\$WIN_NT$.~BT\"system32\ntdll.dll" 2008/08/06 22:56:20- ERROR!!!----F:\I386\usetup.exe could not be copied to D:\Private\Projekt\USB\WinSetupFromUSB\TEMP\$WIN_NT$.~BT\"system32\smss.exe" and it's from this part of DOSNET.INF [FloppyFiles.3] d1,disk1,disk104 d1,ntdll.dll,"system32\ntdll.dll" d1,usetup.exe,"system32\smss.exe" And again this works if I remove the quotation marks, ex. d1,ntdll.dll,system32\ntdll.dll And btw the qutation marks is something nlite have added since my original windows source doesn't have them.
  6. I've found the problem, the problem is in my DOSNET.INF [Directories] d1 = "\I386" d2 = "\cmpnents\tabletpc\I386" d3 = "\cmpnents\mediactr\I386" It should be [Directories] d1 = \I386 d2 = \cmpnents\tabletpc\I386 d3 = \cmpnents\mediactr\I386
  7. I tried to do the same thing on a windows XP 32bit in vmware, i still get the same errors... maybe it's my WindowsXP that is messed up
  8. I copied the XP CD to D:\ It didn't help much... still get the same errors I've attached the log files WinSetupFromUSB.zip
  9. Ok I manually copied & extracted all files that failed to copy using WinSetupFromUSB. And the TXT setup starts but I run into another problem now.. while loading drivers/controllers when it reaches Silicon image SATA something... SI3132B4.sys It says roughly translated: Not enough memory for SI3132B4.sys. Press any key to continue. And when I do that it says Installation Failed. Press any key to reboot. I don't think the whole 1 gb of ram would be full with drivers.. :S And somehow it worked with USB MultiBoot 10. The question is, is it the memory or something else? Did I do something wrong while i copied the missing files? The $WIN_NT$.~BT is 24mb so I don't really think that the drivers takes 1 gb of ram....
  10. Vista x64 Yes, I have rights Administrator privilege account Yeah TEMP is created Tried from D:\WinSetupFromUSB, did not help, same error messages.
  11. I've tried several times, with only XP, with HP format util, PEtoUSB util, ie fat32, NTFS & fat16.. With XP, BartPE, gparted... But when i try to select "First part of Windows XP Professional setup from partition 0", it prints out: Filesystem type is fat, partition typ 0xc and goes back to GRUB4DOS I've attached the log file. Here is the content of menu.lst without the comments: color black/cyan yellow/cyan timeout 30 default /default title First part of Windows XP Professional setup from partition 0 root (hd0,0) chainloader (hd0,0)/$WIN_NT$.~BT/SETUPLDR.BIN title Second part of XP Professional setup+Start it first time from part 0 root (hd0,0) chainloader (hd0,0)/ntldr title Start BartPE/WinBuilder from partition 0 root (hd0,0) chainloader /minint/setupldr.bin Here is the content of the USB-stick: Volume in drive K has no label.

  12. I'm stuck I managed to create the a bootable USB-stick with windows XP and BartPE. I'm using my friends asus eee. I get into the grub4dos menu and select the first line... it did not work, it simply reloads the grub4dos menu. The second line, part 2 of windows setup simply won't work without the first part, it says no OS basically when I try it. The third line, BartPE worked... Any ideas whats wrong and or how I can be more verbose? /Raboo
  13. I agree with ilko_t, keep it simple. All I want to do is able to install my nlited + driverpacks Windows XP from a USB Stick exactly as I would from a CD/DVD drive with no changes or as little changes as possible. No extra options or such.. Nice work ilko_t and everyone who contributed to and inspired this project.. Keep up the good work. /Raboo
  14. XP SP3 Slipstream problems

    I'm trying to slipstream SP3 to a previously nlited XP with SP2 slipstreamed. 1. People are mentioning RTM, what is that? 2. When slipstreaming SP3 in nlite, it asks if I should remove previous service packs, Yes or No? 3. I selected NO and it slipstreamed fine, but when installing XP it gets a lot of error messages of files missing during the copy of files phase, ex. drwatson.exe which i previously stripped of when i had SP2 on my nlite'ed XP. How do I solve these issues without starting from a clean XP?
