Hello all. I was curious if anyone could explain why "Windows Updates Downloader" doesn't download KB958644 for Windows XP SP3. What I've read on the web is this update applies to XP SP3. This is a pretty serious update, it's one of the ways Conficker propagates. TIA.
Alright, so I got that to work. Now my computer gets a BSOD. I know people have done this before... why can't I get the Documents and Settings to redirect properly?!?!? The BSOD is the generic one with no error codes. It just tells me to run chkdsk /r. I do that and of course the drives are clean. Does this maybe have something to do with the fact that my computer has a RAID setup. There are two RAID arrays... RAID1(C:) and RAID5(D:). I am going to have lots of users logging into this server so I want the D&S folder to be on the large array. Please someone guide a lost soul.
I want to change the partition that Documents and Settings is on. I have created a Windows 2003 Server CD with a WINNT.SIF file containing the following: [GuiUnattended] ProfilesDir="D:\Documents and Settings" I saw that the D: drive was already created when I choose which partition to install Windows on. The error I'm getting is: Internal setup data structures are corrupted (phase 0). So then I added some lines per this KB article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/238835. Here is why my WINNT.SIF looks like now: [GuiUnattended] ProfilesDir="D:\Documents and Settings" [Data] UnattendedInstall=Yes MSDosInitiated=No AutoPartition=0 Now I'm getting another error and don't know how to fix it. Here is my error: Setup failed to install the product catalogs. This is a fatal error. The setup log files should contain more information. Does anyone have an example WINNT.SIF where they successfully redirected Documents and Settings? TIA.
