  1. Don't delete anything. Setuporg.exe which has to be placed in XP_INST.IMA \setup\ : 1) In case BTS driver packs were used, or any other method using "fake setup" at start of GUI- just use I386\setupORG.exe, which should be the original MS setup.exe. 2) Original media/unmodified setup.exe- extract it from I386 (7zip or default MS expand.exe) and rename it to setuporg.exe. Don't worry about winnt.sif for now, that's optional. Haha, oh dumb me. I thought when the instructions said to "extract the setup.ex_" that you had to take it away (delete) from the installation image =D I didn't know the setup.ex_ was the setup.exe in a compressed form =) Well I shall try it again tomorrow, ill post the results =) Worked perfectly on Asus EeePC 901 with a Windows XP Pro SP3 image

  3. This didn't work that great, when the first stage installer was done and it rebooted for the second stage, there was a cmd window "setup -newsetup" and a box saying "Error starting the MSI file". After you click OK it reboots and same happends again. I tried both without the stick in the USB and with the stick in the USB and same thing. So heres what I did: Installed the grub4dos to a USB drive with fat32 FS Added the "Loading XP RAM install" item to the menu.lst Deleted file "I386/setup.ex_" from the "XP_RAM.ISO" Copied "XP_RAM.ISO" to the USB Stick at "Inst/XP_RAM.ISO" Copied the file "SUPPORT/TOOLS/SETUP.EXE" from inside "XP_RAM.ISO" to "setup/setuporg.exe" inside "XP_INST.IMA" (there also was a SETUP.exe at the root of the XP_RAM.ISO but it wouldn't fit the floppy image so I guess its the other one?) (what is this WINNT.SIF that you "may add", where is it, where you add it?) Copied "XP_INST.IMA" to the USB Stick at "Inst/XP_INST.IMA" Booted to the stick with my Eee PC 901 and selected the XP RAM Install First stage install went just fine without any errors. The computer reboots to second stage installer, the second stage installer reboots itself right away After it comes back it spits out the error I described at the top
