  1. Unattended WinXP SP3

    You can forget about the updates for SP2. Grab your source disk or distribution folder (the place where your i386 and other folders are) and use HFSLIP, nLite or manually integrate SP3 to the folder I named first (source disk or distribution folder). Then you proceed making an unattended source as explained in the unattended guide here in MSFN.org (http://unattended.msfn.org/) Right now there are 184 MB in 47 updates post Sp3, for the Spanish version of Windows XP. Hope I'm useful to you EDIT: Yes, you can use the program included in deploy.cab in the support folder, setupmgr.exe, it's user-friendly.
  2. How can I adapt this to anopther language version of Windows? What do you advise me to do?
  3. Automating text-mode phase

    I think I succeeded doing what you want when I tried launching XP setup from my live xp that partitioned XP almost automatically I had created a BART PE disk with partition magic and then it started winnt32 I think. I'll try to get my backup disks back from I don't know where zone I remembered where my dvd's are. They were at my ex-girlfriend's house. I don't talk to her anymore. Sorry.
  4. You should know something about it. I also tried to move out of my C drive some folders, with junction, so I then could use Deep Freeze to get a virus-proof system with a usable user account. The problem with the drive letter is something I couldn't solve completely. It has given me headaches for months but I think it's possible to automate it all. I started my project of a Windows XP CD containing the latest updates and installing unattended ready to freeze, with separated partitions for system and user files. I had no luck in learning to use diskpart scripts. That might interest you. It's located in system32. PD: You can download Junction from sysinternals. It's a MUST HAVE program for every system admin. [ I'm still trying to get my XP SP3 source updated ... windows update it's not helping a lot ] I started this project by different parts at the same time. I had a Live XP that loaded partition magic for me. That was -theorically- the only stage of setup that wasn't unattended. Then I wrote some programs in VB so I had winnt.sif configured the way I wanted (machine name, users' profile folders location, etc) that offered a default config and the possibility to change it, and then installed windows the unattended way. It's possible to automate I had thought about what you want to do. Some time ago I thought about the purpose of the "default user" folder, it MUST be created at some time by Windows Setup, I think it must be created by a hive*.inf file in text mode. I don't have such a powerful computer to use virtual pc to install xp several times until I get that information. and I'm a bit short of time. Hope all this help you.
  5. I tried searching the forums and asking google about some files Windows Update downloads to my XP SP3 Spanish clean install. What I'm trying to do is updating my XP SP3 source with the latest updates, but I don't know how to handle these files: Their extension is .PSF The header of the files say "PSTREAM" windowsxp-kb951698-x86-esn_6c3c70cdfd65c0c1e94cd2900f41165e2cbd76fb.psf windowsxp-kb951978-x86-esn_ba9436b957923e997de8854263f18a829ab04026.psf windowsxp-kb951748-x86-esn_57c22bf5efbb218d7048f9c0c8f072bffed0ec9e.psf windowsxp-kb952954-x86-esn_548adec6ac900a062241e467efddbe295df125ce.psf windowsxp-kb950974-x86-esn_d30e2a7750ba2ad19091385d139b261dc7d8fa7f.psf windowsxp-kb954459-x86-esn_0b56824088ba0b635dab348da2a4b850f76a4d99.psf windowsxp-kb956802-x86-esn_8dc8aa0ffa01fa96b25d6da74cf185aa1be986a8.psf windowsxp-kb955839-x86-esn_e8a5fc88e82c9b797096f6926395e090008d73b6.psf I downloaded this files directly from Microsoft, thanks to the WindowsUpdate.log file in my Windows folder Does anybody know what to do with these files? How do I integrate them? XP SP3 Spanish x86. Thanks people!
  6. I slipstream now using HFSLIP no more problems, SP3 Spanish right out of the box
  7. KB905474 - Download

    When I downloaded the Spanish file posted here and tried to install it, it told me it was old :S Windows Update downloaded this file and installed it. http://download.windowsupdate.com/msdownlo...d60bfca1212.exe File Name: WindowsXP-KB905474-ESP-x86.exe Size: 1,35 MB (1.422.376 bytes) My OS: WinXP Pro SP3 Spanish Thanks!
  8. HFSLIP - Test releases

    When hfslip-2.0.0pa_80630a.cmd tries to get my language... REM ======================GET LANG======================================================== :GETLANG FOR /F "TOKENS=2 DELIMS=2." %%I IN ('DIR/B/O-S SOURCE\I386\MFC42*.DL*') DO ( IF /I NOT "%%I"=="U" IF /I NOT "%%I"=="DL_" IF /I NOT "%%I"=="DLL" SET LNG=%%I ) It works fine (I tested copying this code to a separate batch and echoing the result variables) The problem comes when it wants to choose the language. I understand that you can't know the name of every file in every language of the XP source disk. Here's my buggy part of the code: IF /I "%LNG%"=="ESN" SET LCIDD=3082&SET Localization=Spanish&SET LNG=ESN&SET LG=ES&SET LG3=c0a It tries to compare "ESP" with "ESN", it obviously won't coincide so it executes this part: IF NOT DEFINED LG ( ECHO.&ECHO HFSLIP was unable to determine the language of your source OS. As a result, ECHO several updates such as the Windows Update Agent ^(all OS's^) and the hotfix ECHO for .NET Framework 1.1 ^(Server 2003^) cannot be slipstreamed properly.&PAUSE ) Maybe you can correct it if it is wrong or maybe I'm doing something wrong, don't know. The file you're looking for is MFC42ESP.DL_, it must be really difficult to make such a great program for every language. Congratulations. And thank you really much for the program and the support. I really appreciate it. Note: Sorry if this isn't supposed to be placed here. I'm new (9 posts jajaja) Is there anyone with a spanish source out there who can check if I'm the only one having this issue? Note2: I've seen a new issue, don't know what effect it will have :S 368 archivos copiados Merged extracted driver packages into one folder Adding updated driver files from hotfixes bthport.sys Finishing up setup information files "HIVEHEAD" no se reconoce como un comando interno o externo, programa o archivo por lotes ejecutable.

  9. ok, I'll describe the process. I slipstreamed manually, by opening a cmd in my XP SP3 system. Then copied the contents of my original cd to a folder in desktop. Then got the SP3 file from microsoft. Then I used the /integrate switch and it told me that the integration had been succesful. At this stage, I didn't test if this slipstreamed setup source was able to install a working XP Sp3 system. Then I made a Windows XP Live with bartpe from ANOTHER source (Windows XP Sp2 setup files, using the same XP Sp0 cd and sp2 exe file downloaded from microsoft download center) Then I added to BartPE XP Sp2 three programs written by my own that create a custom winnt.sif file and start WINNT32.exe from my XP SP3 files and point to that winnt.sif. My xp sp3 i386 files are copied to harddisk before executing winnt32.exe to [driveletter]:\source\i386 to (unattended) set windows up and that's it, I can also launch installation from the bootmenu I made that will launch a non-unattended XP SP3 Setup directly from the DVD. I haven't burned anything yet, I'm testing the ISO created with EasyBoot (it's easy and boots ) in a virtual machine with 256 MB of ram and my amd sempron 2200+ overclocked from 1.5 to 1.8 Ghz I haven't installed SP3 from a SP0 system. I slipstreamed it. I was thinking about searching for a program that would intercept windows update when downloading service pack 3 installation file and then use that file to integrate to my SP0 source. Hope I've been clear. EDIT: Hear the news: I've checked the hash of the file I had downloaded some time ago and the file I downloaded today and they are the same :S I don't know what to do, if slipstream sp2 and then sp3 or what. Does anybody know a way to view the url of a file being downloaded by Windows Update? I forgot to say I'm using spanish versions of the files, SP3 Spanish, XP PRO CD Spanish, etc.
  10. Thank you really much. I'm gonna try that. I've redownloaded the file and now I'll download SP2. I forgot to mention I am slipstreaming over a XP Professional CD. Thank you all.
  11. Well, I have this little problem. I slipstreamed Service Pack 3 into my XP no service pack CD. When I use my new slipstreamed cd to install XP, it installs as the original XP (SP0), not the updated one. Any ideas? I'm clueless about where to search. What did I do wrong? I slipstreamed the SP3 in a Windows XP system, with Service Pack 3 installed by Automatic Updates, not from Vista. I didn't use any programs like nLite or so. The system that resulted in SP0 was installed from a XPSP2 BartPE. (Does it really matter?) Note: When I tried to install from the SP3 file I downloaded from microsoft something like this happened too. After installing, my system was neither SP2 nor SP3, it was something in the middle. After using Automatic Updates I finally got "service pack 3" text in System Properties dialog. Should I try downloading the file again or am I proceeding wrong somewhere? It's a really big file :S Thanks!
  12. I think I can make you a program that checks if certain process is running and when it stops it loads shutdown.exe But it wouldn't be universal, you should have Visual Basic 6 Runtime files copied and registered. If you want I can write it for you.
  13. When I get some free time (I'm studying for university) I'll check that out in a virtual machine but, last time I installed XP or 2003 in other drive than C it remained that drive. I'll try again. Thanks. Edit: I think I manage to understand what you say... I'll try that. You say that if I image D: and put it on any partition it will remain D?
  14. I know what you're talking about, Vista will always take the C letter, but XP won't. And I often need different installations. It's not the same to install server 2003 + xp than installing server 2008 + vista or any other combination. XP instead, never takes another drive letter. If you install on C will be different than installing on D or E or whatever. If I could make Vista as functional and as fast as my XP Professional fully customized, I wouldn't have to bother so much with this, but it's impossible, they're different, Vista was made for buying new hardware, and I'm not going to spend the money I don't have just to upgrade my hardware while XP runs as fast as I need. With thousands of megabytes in applications, freezeing some parts of my computer had made it continue being faster. Anyway, I appreciate the information and tips you give me. They're really good because they give me some ideas. I could resize the second or third or any partition and then move it so I can create a new first primary partition for XP so it would always be C. An argentinian guy says thanks to all of you
  15. What I'm trying to do is to make a setup for my pc's. I can't make an image because I use different drive letters. It's not that simple Thanks for your reply.
