  1. On the boot image subject - so now that I have BOOT.BIN by using SuperMagician's getboot.cmd -OR- if I already had a boot image to use from before - I can empty the HFTOOLS folder and use one or the other boot image when making the final cd with nero? Interesting, does this mean newer as in date the program/file was created or newer as in newer version number?
  2. OK thanks for the input. The make cab and all that will require some learning on my part. If there are some step by step directions you could point me to that would be great. In anycase, I was going off of foggy memory and FDV's directions - way back when I helped make some of it more clear to newbs like me lol. Is there an updated set of instructions anywhere? With LegitCheckCtrl/WinGenuinelyAnnoying, I think I tried it in the fix folder back then and it didn't work. Here I was just taking a stab at it to see if perhaps it would work that way now. It would be nice to figure out how to get that file in there just as a convienience from having to put it in sys32 post install.
  3. I ran the getboot.cmd file and it put BOOT.BIN in the HFTOOLS folder. The file I extacted manually, way back when, with Bart's via the cmd promp is called image1.bin ? Anyway, I re-ran HFSLIP with just bbie.exe in HFTOOLS and my XPcd in the drive and still no boot image winds up in HFTOOLS after HFSLIP does its thing (also moved getboot out of HFSLIP folder) here's the log files attached T P was this to me? If so please elaborate. "Type in..." where? into what? New_Folder.zip
  4. This is really really nice Tomcat !! Great work - it was nowhere close to this simple when I did this last year My my, things have truly come a long way with HFSLIP
  5. I sure can D:\HFSLIP\HFTOOLS contains: MSICabExtract.exe, MSICabExtract.txt, & bbie.exe Thank you HFSLIP.zip
  6. Hey guys its been forever since Ive been around. Things look great. I decided to do another disk so may as well get the latest stuff - so here I am. I noticed in STEP 6 for xp: Create a boot sector file from your Windows CD. You need to extract a copy of your CD's boot sector using Bart's boot image extractor. (Or use Google, you'll find it easily). Put BBIE.EXE in HFTOOLS and make sure your Windows CD is in the drive. HFSLIP will extract a bootsector automatically. If, for whatever reason, you don't have a Windows CD on hand but you do have a boot sector file, rename it to boot.bin and put it in HFTOOLS. I did it the manual way before so I thought this was really great. I had my XPcd in the cd drive when I ran HFSLIP but I don't see the boot image. Is it supposed to be in HFTOOLS? or is it supposed to be hidden? If its supposed to be hidden then how do I get nero to find it to make a bootable cd?
  7. I like the sound of this
  8. I'll reply any darn where I want to FDV - Thanks for the signature logo !!! Looks like this thing has just EXPLODED !!!
  9. yes HFSLIP and nLite work very well together. My xp now installs in 16 minutes!!! Of course no one believes me at first when I tell them lol
  10. I think a fourum with multiple subject threads would be a good idea. It should make this easier to read because it can be broken down into different threads: newbies, xp, 2000, 2003, program development, troubleshooting... We are sort of all over the place right now. Our "thread" has enough twists and turns to knit a sweater! Reminds me of a "chatroom" with all different subjects bouncing around at the same time Is there someone we can e-mail polite requests to grant HFSLIP it's own fourum?
  11. @ saugatak If you don't have the full version of Nero that might be the reason. I think I ran into that same issue because I only had the OEM version that came with my burner. If you just want to create an iso image to test on a virtualPC I just used nLight for that. Just skip straight to the last step. Once I got my HFslip like I wanted it I upgraded my Nero and used the method on FDV's instructions to burn the CD. Re NERO: I like things that are free just as much as the next guy but sometimes you get what you pay for. Or sometimes you just have to pay to play...
  12. PG I get the same thing, I think its pretty much normal. Actually I'm surprised WU doesn't have a heart attack - not prepared to see HF's slipstreamed. WU also wants to install its malware HF on mine. I'm not at all concerned about 2-3 HF's from WU when HFSLIP saves me 10-20 mins from the first WU's. After using nLite my XP install takes exactly 16 mins !!! And my current PC is not all that fast. @ Lupo WinXP = SYSOC.IN_
  13. FDV you crack me up thats one way to put it. it really does need to be cleaned up and/or redone somehow. It was 90% over my head but I read it anyway. Tough to get new recruits with all of that. Maybe we can add a link to the first post telling newbies to read step by step instructions before reading through the entire thread. Also perhaps direct new people to skip ahead to a more recent post # to start reading at that is more current/relevant to what HFSLIP has become today. PeterG you can also use the very last step of nLite to make a bootable iso and just burn it to a cd that way.
  14. LMAO fdv
  15. @PeterGau: Hang in there you'll get it running for you. Its well worth the effort and you will get to learn a lot in the process. ALSO I kept getting "unexpected 7-zip error" during instalation. I removed RyanVM's java pack from the HFSVPK Folder and the problem went away. His netfix(.NET) pack works fine. @ToomyP: I noticed a post about KB890046 not slipstreaming corectly with a non englis version. Just thought I'd let you know I have the same experience (US english version).
