  1. I'm back.

    Hey, members. It's been a while since I've been on here. Looks like a lot has changed. Looks like I have many hours of reading ahead of me.
  2. error on line : 1944 (missing an ending bracket sign?) error on line : 2185 (missing an ending bracket sign?) error on line : 3588 (missing an ending bracket sign?)
  3. 3rd party 32-bit DriverPacks

    Here's my personal laser printer KONICA MINOLTA PAGEPRO 1350W http://rapidshare.de/files/15774120/Driver...Printer.7z.html Link valid until April 4, 2006.
  4. 3rd party 32-bit DriverPacks

    For some reason, a lot of these packs will not download for me. I don't know if it's because I'm using a customized HOSTS file or what. However, some of them WILL download. ???
  5. It'd be nice if there were a short description as to what '1' does. Example : ;Disable the NTFS Last Access Time Stamp (speeds up viewing folders in ntfs) [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem] "NtfsDisableLastAccessUpdate"=dword:00000001 The description of the above tweaks begins with negative word, disable, meaning that the current value of the dword "00000001" will perform the disable function. However, in this next example : ;Optimize System Cache Size: server only (Will cause data corruption if you have ATI vid card and 1 GB of ram) [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management] "LargeSystemCache"=dword:00000001 The decription of this particular tweak does not begin with a negative word, meaning that the value of the dword "00000001" will activate the function outlined in the description. My confusion is that the dword value of "00000001" is used for both disabling and activating registry functions -- depending on how the decription is written and interpreted. A final example : ;Disable Windows Installer Rollback (faster msi installs, But some MSI installer wont work with this tweak activated, caused all sorts of problems don't recommend [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Installer] "DisableRollback"=dword:00000001 Since the decription says 'disable,' does that mean if I left this dword value alone, that this function would be disabled ? ( In other words, this key (1) already is coming to me in the already-disabled position ? But aren't there keys with the same value (1) coming to me in the already-enabled position ?) If I wanted this function 'enabled' would I have to change the dword value to 00000000 ? In tweaking this registry file to meet my needs, I would have to change the description on every value so that I would remember which dword value corresponds to which function ( on / off ) . Perhaps this standardized format could be used : ;USE ntfs last access time stamp ? (1=Yes / 0=No) (speeds up viewing folders in ntfs) [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem] "NtfsDisableLastAccessUpdate"=dword:00000001 --- ;USE windows installer rollback ? (1=Yes / 0=No) (faster msi installs, But some MSI installer wont work with this tweak activated, caused all sorts of problems don't recommend [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Installer] "DisableRollback"=dword:00000001 Just tryin' to be helpful.

  7. Integration of NVIDIA's nForce RAID and AHCI drivers

    This method works! Thanks! Using Windows XP with SP2 - Corp. Edition. Procedure: 1. I copied the contents of the entire CD to a directory named G:\XPCD . 2. I used NLite to remove the IDE drivers from G:\XPCD . 3. I integrated BTS's driverpacks, as well as the user created TV packs and my own packs, included MassStorage, using Method 1 to G:\XPCD . 4. Using Notepad, I edited TXTSETUP.SIF & DOSNET.INF . I deleted all references to 'NVRAID' and 'NVATABUS' that BTS's driverpacks had inserted. This also included deleting the HWID (Hard Ware IDs) references. 5. Using the instructions outlined on the first post of this thread, I copied filed FROM the 'Legacy' folder to the 'Sata' folder. In addition, I copied the contents of the 'SmBus' folder to the 'Sata' folder. Version number : v6.70 . 6. Using NLite, I 'added' drivers. All I did was point NLite to the 'Sata' folder that contained the files from both the 'Legacy' and the 'SmBus' folders. 6a. If you re-check the DOSNET.INF & TXTSETUP.INF files with Notepad, then you'll see how and what NLite interjects in order to make the nForce 4 drivers work. (Example, you'll see : d1,nvraid.sys ....as well as... d9,nvraid.sys and what not ...) 7. After all of this, I added RyanVM's updatepack as well as several other updatepacks using RyanVm's integrator. (I'm not sure if this was in the right order, but it does in fact work.) Thanks again. I can now boot my father in law's NF4 computer with only this CD.
  8. Best spyware blocker

    Was reading about the custom host file. Found this site : http://www.timdorr.com/syko86/ycsoft/hostssecure.htm and http://www.bluetack.co.uk/forums/index.php?showforum=65 Seems interesting.
  9. Overkill

    Reducing the source makes sense if say, you're installing Windows XP or 2000 on a customized Carputer or something like that. In the regard, however, it makes much more sense to modify an xbox with a mod chip, put XBMC as the dashboard and go from there. Regular xboxs are like $150, an upgraded HD will run around $100 depending on size, the modchip is like $65. With a few LCD screens, you can make something that'll really pimp your ride. And you'll be able to watch .mkv, .avi, .qt, or whatever. You can always upgrade the HD on an xbox. I knew a friend in high school that put a PC in his Blazer (early to mid 1990s) just so he could interface his sound card to his stereo system so he can play Mp3s. Now, there are factory CD players that play Mp3s from the CD itself. To me it makes more sense to have a stable system, regardless of size or speed. A fast system is nice, but it has to be fast for a purpose. What is the purpose of a fast system ? 90% of the people will respond : "To game." I understand that. But even there, there are fanactics that want every last .005 FPS they can get. Me ? I want the most stable, and within stability, the fastest system I can get in order to FRAG people. Upgrading drivers is the quickest way to gain performance and stability. But the drivers depend on the OS to function. I think people translate a faster OS into more FPS. I want my OS to be quick, responsive, protected and uptodate -- this is the cornerstone upon which all else depends (well, except for the hardware). That's why I use HFSLIP, RyanVM's stuff, and BTS's driverpacks. I want to be able to have one CD or one DVD that has all the hotfixes and drivers already on it to help those that I know who are in no way computer savvy.
  10. I know there is a huge hotfix package available on 'another' site. Is it against MSFN policy for users to make available their collection of 'private' hotfixes ? Would it be better if people uploaded their contributions to rapidshare or megaupload ? If people really take a liking to my suggestion, and if it is not against any MSFN policies, I would recommend that people describe the KB#'s inside their uploads ( to minimize redundant downloads ) within their replies to this topic. As I undertand things, Hfslip is THE way to go for hotfix installation. This is why I'm creating this thread within the hfslip sub-forum. On MSFN, there is a thread for the well-known, and publically available from Microsoft, hotfixes. (a very good thing.) What I am suggesting is the creation of a thread ( or a topic as the Admin sees fit ) for those hotfixes that you have to call Microsoft in order to obtain. Personally, I would like to see such a thing. But if the moderators or admin oppose such an idea, then hey ... in the end it was only a suggestion. Private Hotfixes for Windows XP Private Hotfixes for Windows XP Media Center Edition Private Hotfixes for Windows Server 2003 Private Hotfixes for Windows 2000 I do not know if it is a 'good' thing, for example, to integrate hotfixes that were designed for XP Server into XP Pro... or from XP Media Center Edition into XP Home. I'm nowhere near qualified to answer that one. If I'm given the green light, with the standard 'use at your own risk' and 'user contributions in no way reflect MSFN recommendations' disclaimers, then I'll begin. I will begin breaking down the hotfixes released by that 'other' site into smaller sized chunks. I know that Ryanvm and other members of Ryanvm's forums have collected a bunch of hotfixes. It'd be great if they got in on this. For this reason, it'd be awesome if either hfslip itself, or another program that someone could write (which hfslip would in turn call), would use the latest version of duplicate filenames and/or hotfixes. Ok, I'll quit editing my post now.

    Uh. I think I overlooked the link to your tool. Where is it ?
  12. STEP FOUR. Download and prepare the hotfixes to be slipstreamed. Save all of the following to the HF folder, which can take Type 1 and Type 2 Hotfixes. Do not rename the files. (However, it is ok to put a prefix to the filename in case you want to segregate some hotfixes.) If you don't see a hotfix listed here but you know about it, don't worry, just go and get it!! Without getting overly complex about it, if a hotfix was issued after August 2005, you should download it, because it will be useful. HFSLIP is smart software... it will slipstream only the latest binaries into your source.
  13. If Hotfix X-v1, X-v2, X-v3 are present will X-v3 prevail ? In other words ... If hotfix 123 is later replaced by hotfix 456, will hfslip overwrite the contents extracted from 123 with the newer contents from 456 ? In other words again ... Is this statement true, "Those who wish to put every post-windows-xp-sp2 hotfix on the internet inside their HF folder, without examining each and every hotfix for the lastest version number CAN do so because hfslip will always use, in the end, the latest version number of each file within a hotfix. An example : If you have the Cumulative Windows Internet Explorer Hotfix from February 2005 inside the HF folder along with the newer Cumulative Windows Internet Explorer hotfix from August 2005, then hfslip will extract both versions of the same hotfix, but will ultimately use the latest one."
  14. DriverPacks BASE V5.10.5

    @Fencer128 Are you saying that the currently : SET T1=Fedit -add -once -create -f I386\SVCPACK.INF -s ProductCatalogsToInstall -l %T1% "KB888111.CAT" %T1% "KB892559.CAT" SET T1=Fedit -rem -f I386\SVCPACK.INF -s ProductCatalogsToInstall -l %T1% "KB888111.CAT" %T1% "KB892559.CAT" should in fact be changed to : SET T1=Fedit -rem -f I386\SVCPACK.INF -s ProductCatalogsToInstall -l %T1% "KB888111.CAT" %T1% "KB892559.CAT" SET T1=Fedit -add -once -create -f I386\SVCPACK.INF -s ProductCatalogsToInstall -l %T1% "KB888111.CAT" %T1% "KB892559.CAT" if I misunderstood, sorry. Just wondering what you're talking about when you said "delete should come before create."
