  1. How would I add the vista source to the USB drive so I could install Vista or XP from same thumbdrive? I used the instructions from: http://www.msfn.org/board/Installing-Winxp...npe-t88270.html
  2. it also doesn't integrate DOS-mode drivers...
  3. I'm also getting errors: ialmnt5.inf
  4. Use WinBuilder to create a VistaPE project Copy the I386 folder from your XP source to it learn/create a batchfile to create a partition on your HD (put on usb drive) learn/create a batchfile to format and make bootable (bootsect) the partition learn/create a batchfile to start winnt32.exe (using unattended file and makelocalsource) check out any of the driver tools like DP base or DrvComp
  5. Well, I couldn't get the nlited source to work. I ended up building a WinBuilder VistaPE project Copied the entire winxp(slipstreamed with sp3) i386 folder to the USB drive created 3 batch files * one to diskpart * one to format c: and bootsect * one to run winnt32 etc I'm now looking for an easy way to integrate drivers, I suppose I could do nlite as long as I ONLY integrate drivers, but I'd really prefer a drag and drop (wouldn't we all) I'm checking out http://www.msfn.org/board/DrvComp-v20070809-t90020.html (DriverCompressor) with and without DPBase
  6. WinBuilder just kicks serious butt. The VistaPE project rules. Never seen a scripted image project work so easily
  7. That is a real good idea, Iceman. I'm going to have to test that out. Even a simple "ping -a <ipaddr>" of the adapter might do it
  8. from everything I've seen about this, the issue is due to the OS at some point re-initiallizes the USB bus. When it does that, it looses the USB drive and the data on it. Therefore it cannot read from the disk and tends to Blue Screen. To work around that, they developed the RAM Disk proceedure.
  9. I just checked out the nlite site and lookie what I found v1.4.6 fix: XP SP3 manual install (winnt32) issues Lets see what it does... EDIT: Nope, same thing. I'll eventually just try it with with bare xpsp3 and working up from that. I'm thinking that the slipstreamed WMP11 is fubaring it.
  10. I'll give it a shot building the source by hand... since SP3, there really aren't a bunch of hotfixes to apply, so I'm really only using it to slipstream IE7, WMP11, and a bunch of drivers... winnt.sif does most of the config after that I suppose I can just add WMP and ie7 afterward
  11. I'm having a slight problem with the actual install of XP I have an nlited source that I have robocopied to my thumbdrive (actually made 2 nlite xp source files) I can boot via thumbdrive into PE2.0 The diskpart works fine the XP setup GUI works fine (Winnt32.exe etc...) My problem occurs in the DOS mode when it is copying the files. It complains about a missing "MFPLAT.DLL" at about 60% complete. I have verified that the file exists in the thumbdrive and in the source file folder. If I burn the files to a DVD and setup via that disk, there is no error and setup concludes correctly. If I skip the file it again errors at "WMDRMSDK.DLL" at 85%. Skip that file, and the GUI setup starts and runs for a while before complaining about un2regmp.exe (or something similar) It will complete eventually, but there are many missing shortcuts and missing applications. This does NOT occur if booting from a DVD to do a typical unattended XP install. I have made 2 deductions about these files: 1. they are not compressed in the i386 folder... MFPLAT.DLL not MFPLAT.DL_ 2. They seem to be WMP files that I slipstreamed in via "WMP11 Integrator" Anyone come across this?
  12. I image the full HD, (P1-dell utility partition, p2-winxp) The boot failure said something to the effect of "error loading operating system". This dos text appears immediately after BIOS screen goes away. This only appears after using winpe2.0 cd to ghost the HD. When ghosting from a bart or pe1.5 cd the image applies perfectly. It is on the same hardware/same PC that made the image
  13. BTW... when I use it to apply a ghost image, the image fails to boot. Apply the same image from a bartPE or winpe 1.5, the image applies correctly. I'm thinking the is a case of "The lords giveth, and the lords taketh away"
  14. Ive gotten a standard PE.win to boot from CD and thumbdrive, but I'm having difficulty in getting many GUI apps to work like Freecommander and A43, they'll start but will not list drives and such... I'm just running them manually via cmd line from a folder on a thumbdrive... Anyone got a list of tested apps that will work?
  15. what about dumping additional files onto an imaged drive without rebooting. basically dump image on a drive than copy additional files to that drive, from PE...
