  1. Well i modified the setupldr.bin in all the XP OS's and i got it all working which is the main thing
  2. Thanks for all the help guys iv done it !! 3.5GB ISO Image, booting up with BSCRIPT * Windows XP Home OEM SP3 * Windows XP Home Retail SP3 * Windows XP Home Upgrade SP3 * Windows XP Pro Corp SP3 * Windows XP Pro OEM SP3 * Windows XP Pro Retail SP3 * Windows XP Pro Upgrade SP3 * Windows XP Media Centre SP3 * Windows XP Tablet PC SP3 When selecting a OS it installs the following silently - All windows update to date (Slipstreamed with SP1/SP2/SP3) - .net framework packages - Office 2007 with SP1 and SP2 (unattended) - Video/Audio codecs - Zonealarm /AVG - Windows Plus! Media Edition - Registry files to correct the keyboard currency location etc... - Runs Disk Clean up - Runs Defragmentation The problem I faced was the setupldr.bin file, I got a "cracked" version of this and basically used the same one for each OS but edited the XPHO or XPHR text within it, after when I done all of that, the ISO image was 15GB, I ran each of the OS's and i got NTDETECT FAILED, then i optimised 15gb down to 3.5gb = resolved! I done it all finally!!! next step......... VISTA AIO!
  3. found on the internet that i need to edit the setupldr.bin at address 00002060 Replaced value 74 03 with EB 1A, I have done that but it still wont boot, so far on the disk i have XPHO, XPHR XPHO I have not edited the setupupldr.bin at address 00002060 so that is default, that boots fine and goes through install, however on my boot menu when i select XPHR I get NTDETECT FAILED, which XPHR i have edited the setupldr.bin at address 00002060 please see zipped up edited file, any ideas? SETUPLDR.zip
  4. "You might want to check the actual LBA addresses of NTDETECT.COM (and of all files it cannot find)." How would i go about checking this? The NTDETECT FAILED is the main issue really the rest i can try and get past. [ i created the os integration etc.... via nlite and magic iso for the boot menu and power iso for optimisation ]
  5. Hello, A bit of back ground information on my project so far please see: Issue I am having now is : The .ISO image is 16GB big, and managed to optimise it down to 3.5gb which is good, however what happens now is, when I add the "software" folder in the root containing all my programs when i boot up it says NTDETECT FAILED? I took it out and ran it again and works fine, I then slowly added each directory within the software folder and it works. So far I have XPHO and XPHR, now when I add other OS versions it trips again! NTDETECT FAILED?? I think it has something to do with the directory name paths being too long? im not sure? or the size of the Directorys? even though the ISO image is 3.5gb, its like its really sensitive? I might have to add each folder then save and run , kind of like trial and error, but has anyone else come across this issue? Could it be with the ISO image properties? ie. 9660 thingy? im confused! im at a stage now where it says that and now all of a sudden cannot boot mboot.bin! ARGH!!!!! Shed some light please people! HELP! (P.S With just the XPHO and XPHR and software folder, it goes through the install no problem , but when it logs on to windows for the 1st time and it runs the runonce.cmd, some files wont run? it says cannot find the files even though i can navigate to it via the disk in my computer?i tried manually running it (start>run) and it doesnt like the switches? but runs fine without switches argh!!! ) Problem : 1) NTDETECT FAILED 2) Cannot boot MBOOT.BIN 3) Does not like switches Help!
  6. ok I figured it out, it is a problem with the winnt file, for some reason I had to add a line to repartition automatically? :s although it works fine on the stand alone ISO image, I got past that problem
  7. Hello I am a new user so hello!! My setup that I have been creating for months are made via Nlite and personal scripting via batch files, I have created a unattend for the following: * Windows XP Home OEM SP3 * Windows XP Home Retail SP3 * Windows XP Home Upgrade SP3 * Windows XP Pro Corp SP3 * Windows XP Pro OEM SP3 * Windows XP Pro Retail SP3 * Windows XP Pro Upgrade SP3 * Windows XP Media Centre SP3 Now I have created them all with there seperate ISO's. With my unattend setup it installs: - All windows update to date (Slipstreamed with SP1/SP2/SP3) - .net framework packages - Office 2007 with SP1 and SP2 (unattended) - Video/Audio codecs - Zonealarm /AVG - Windows Plus! Media Edition - Registry files to correct the keyboard currency location etc... - Runs Disk Clean up - Runs Defragmentation (Note: Windows XP Media Centre was so hard to do because of that rollup 2 thing, but i by passed all that and it all works with sp3 and all updates and everything ) So all the above is processed unattended, so i put the ISO image via VMWARE or on disk on a pc , put it in , leave for for a hour or so and it does all of that on its own. So, seems really good? I havent got a problem with it , however the problem starts when I merge all editions on 1 disk, I following MagicIsos guide on creating a multiboot ( http://www.magiciso.com/tutorials/miso-create-multi-os-cd.htm ) I can get the menu up and working, when it boots when i click on a OS version it loads, then it loses all the unattend to it! It asks me to format the disk etc.... what have I done wrong or what havent I done? I have extracted the boot file from each OS ISO image, I have done the correct folder/file structure, edited the setupldr file to point to the I386 (renamed) in the CD drive also the txtseup.sif, I just dont get it! It works fine on its own ISO images but when i try do a multiboot it loses the unattend? Please can someone help?
