  1. I only have Windows 7 on one PC, does this mean I cant use WMP to send to the Vista computer? I tried right-clicking a song in WMP but I dont get the Play To option.
  2. Is it possible, or more specifically, does anyone know of a program that I can install (just an idea, there may be other ways) a server on one computer and a client on the other, and the client can connect to the server and transmit its audio over my network and have the server play it? In case this seems kind of confusing (and reading it back I can see how it would be) I decided to have some fun in Paint to explain my idea
  3. As with the rest of ya, Ive given up. I picked up an 80GB iPod HDD, and tossed that inside.
  4. I cloned the SSD to the USB and installed UsbBootWatcher and it gave me 0x7B so I tried both the modified NTDETECT.COM and embedded drivers, and they both still give me the 0x7B bsod
  5. Yes, system_%date%.sav does cause this. Backup the file "f:\windows\system32\config\system" yourself. Then ignore this error message. The file containing the registry hive system at USB: f:\windows\system32\config\systemDid a second cmd window opened? There should be a second cmd window opened, USB registry adjusted and second cmd closed. This part may work or fail at Windows 7. With Windows 7 that part did not happen. On XP I did notice it happen. However it didnt allow it to boot. Im in the process of in stalling SP3 and cloning now. I will let you know how that goes
  6. Use files and folder Comment the '@echo off' line. Run usb_xp_init.cmd again.Does this line cause the error: copy "%XP_system32%\config\system" "%XP_system32%\config\system_%date%.sav" Ignore this line so far. Usbohci.sys is not found at driver.cab, but expanded from sp3.cab. That's not a error.Do you run Windows 7 Release Candidate ? usb_xp_init.cmd hasn't been tested that way. There didn't exist Windows 7 RC back then. Does exist files d:\windows\system32\UsbBootWatcher.exe and d:\windows\system32\UsbBootWatcher.conf? Was system registry file updated? Can you upload your system registry file? Yes Im running Windows 7, I didnt realize I needed to run usb_xp_init.cmd from XP. My server runs XP so I will copy usb_xp_init.cmd to my server and hook up the hard drive and run it and post what it says. Which 'system registry file' do you mean? EDIT I created the directory structure like you said, commented the @echo off, and ran your program.

  7. Insert the SSD again.Install XP to the SSD card. Install UsbBootWatcher http://www.911cd.net/forums//index.php?showtopic=22473 Clone the XP SSD card to USB drive. Disconnect the SSD card. Boot from USB. Report the boot behaviour. You may require the edited ntdetect.com or XP Embedded usbhubb.sys. I don't trust ISO editing tools at Windows installation CD. Extract files, build a new CD, read the files: cdimage, mkisofs, ImgBurn Use a decent writer, good quality media and burn at appropiate speed. This is not always the lowest speed. Edited: Do you have this files at USB hard disk still? Files after first restart?There is usb_xp_init.cmd http://www.911cd.net/forums//index.php?s=&...st&p=153920 This change some USB settings. XP may boot from USB and continue installation. I tried your usb_xp_init.cmd file and when I ran it I got a few errors: C:\Users\J Skoba\Desktop>usb_xp_init.cmd D:\windows\system32 prepare XP files after first installation reboot The system cannot find the path specified. 0 file(s) copied.

D:\Windows\system32 is the path to the usb drive that I am trying to install onto (I connected the drive to my computer after the first restart and ran your script). EDIT I tried doing an install with a nonpatched SP2 build and it bsod's on the laptop w/ usb drive, and installs fine in VMWare. Did the usb patch to it and I get the same thing. However the SP3 builds dont give me the bsod on the laptop (but then files are different).
  8. BSOD 0x7b may relate to the broken SSD too. Can you remove the broken hardware? Can you disable the SSD disk at BIOS? XP does support install from a USB CD-ROM. A default XP SP3 should do this. No BSOD 0x7b so far. There are USB adjustments required for first restart. NTDETECT.COM case is importand at CD. The SSD has been physically disconnected. There isnt any actual problem with it, just a design flaw, so I decided not to use it. And I am installing off a USB CD-ROM (well, a SATA DVD-Rom with a SATA -> USB adapter). - I have tried pure (untouched) SP0 and SP2 builds and as per the last two edits, neither will load past "Setup is starting Windows" (0x7B bluescreen). However SP2 build I have does. I have deleted all the partitions on the drive to make sure its not a file system error or anything like that. - Uppercase, got it. - I am using ImgBurn to rip the iso, WinISO to extract/add the files, and ImgBurn to burn again, at 2.4x speed (however I am burning to DVDs as I dont have any blank CDs) - I am using notepad.exe to do the editing and I am typing everything by hand, with the exception of usbboot.inf Hopefully I was just missing something and I needed to sleep on it, Ill work on it some more after school today
  9. You may have better luck with the patcher: http://www.911cd.net/forums//index.php?sho...=19235&st=2 http://www.911cd.net/forums//index.php?sho...181&st=1986 jaclaz P.S.: Forget the above. This is the first report I ever saw about a Windows filesystem/app being CaSe SensItIvE. Are you sure of your last edited post? Have you tried the files I gave you a link previously? As far as I was aware, it didnt matter how it was named, thats why I named it NTDETECT.COM. After it errored, I googled the error and found someone who renamed the file to lowercase (something about BartPE and it having converted files to lowercase/uppercase when it shouldnt have, and they renamed it) so I renamed it as they did and it got rid of the error. In the first link you gave, the poster had a problem with the boot sector - I see the Windows XP loading screen & bar, so Im pretty sure the bootsector isnt my problem. In the second link you gave, the first link in your post (excluding the modified ntdetect one) links to the ngine.de forums - I have been doing lots of reading there but Ive decided to post here instead as there seems to be very little activity over there. The second link in your post is to the guide Ive been following this whole time. The last link, "http://www.nedprod.com/Niall_stuff/BootWinUSB/", Im reading through now. Im also going to give the patcher a shot. If you have any other ideas, Id love to hear 'em. Thanks! EDIT Im reburning the CD with the files you attached, hopefully I missed something. EDIT 2 No go, the files you attached give me an error in setup: "The following value in the .SIF file used by Setup is corrupted or missing: Value 0 on the line in section [sourceDisksFiles] with key "SP3.cab" By the way, Im using an un-touched OEM SP2 install disk (I had an Integrated SP3 disk that I normally use, but it only had one [Files] section when I was told to put the modifications in the second section, which told me the disk had been modified (and I wanted to rule out the modifications) EDIT 3 Is there any way to have windows pause for a couple seconds before trying to boot off the USB drive (to give it time to init and stuff)? I just remembered that with BackTrack I had to add a rootdelay=10 in the kernel line or it would fail to boot. EDIT 4 Crap, just tried the patcher and I realized that the version Im using is SP3. Ill have to find a Pre-SP3 disk around here somewhere! EDIT 5 Tried it with an untouched SP0 build and it gives me an 0x7B just before the textmode installer would list off the disks in the computer and allow you to format. Trying with SP2 now. EDIT 6 WTH. Tried an SP2 build, and I get an 0x7B at the same time as the SP0 disk. This is really starting to p*** me off. I need to invest in a CDRW EDIT 7 Tried the SP2 build, without doing the usb patching, and I still get the 0x7B bsod right after "Setup is starting windows". Why do some disks work and some dont?
  10. I tried the ntdetect.com file, saved it with Tiny Hexer as the author said, checked the file size, and when I try to boot, I get "NTDETECT failed" EDIT Renamed it from NTDETECT.COM to ntdetect.com and now it doesnt give the error, but still gives me the 0x7B bsod. Im trying to read through the 911cd.net thread but a lot of them speak in really broken English and it makes it really hard to understand. Cheers!
  11. XP dosn't support your approach by default. USB drivers are not loaded, hence the BSOD 0x7b. Change the drive load order. Dietmar described the behaviour and solution: http://www.911cd.net/forums//index.php?showtopic=14181 There are two projects http://www.ngine.de/index.jsp?pageid=4176 http://www.usboot.org/tiki-index.php Tried 4 different versions of XP with the ngine guide, and re-did the files a couple times each, and I still got the 0x7B bsod after the first reboot. Also tried copying the "XP embedded drivers" as per their forum post, and I still get the BSOD. Did a fresh install of XP and used USBoot on it, copied it to the drive, and it would give me a black screen after the boot select screen. Eff. EDIT Wierd! Tried adding different disks to the boot.ini file, incase it wasnt rdisk(0), which didnt work, but when I tried the original line again, it didnt BSOD... updates to come!
  12. I recently picked up an Acer Aspire One, and the SSD inside is garbage - it hangs up all the time, even doing the most basic things in Windows or Backtrack, so Ive decided to use an external USB -> SATA adapter with a spare 80GB notebook SATA drive I had around. I have no problems partitioning and installing Backtrack and having it boot (this rules out the drive and the laptop), but whenever I install XP on the drive, after the textmode copy and restart, I see the windows XP loading screen and bar for half a second, then I get an 0x7B (inaccessable boot device) bluescreen. The drive is never unplugged from the machine. I am doing the install from a USB -> IDE adapter & a CDRom. What am I missing/doing wrong?
  13. Dont wanna jinx it, but so far so good. Turned Aero back on with 169.25 and it hasnt froze up yet.
  14. Found this as a "fix" for the problem (pretty basic if you ask me - one of those 'why didnt I think of that already' moments) so Ill try this and turn Aero back on:

Its even worse if I have two games open at once (the reason behind me buying 4gb of RAM). Ever since the new patch, the game causes the screen to go black for a few seconds, then a message saying nvlddmkm was successfully recovered. It would either do that, or just bluescreen off the bat. If you google "WoW nvlddmkm" there are tons of issues. I tried one of the fixes, turning Aero off, and thats solved it. So I just cant play the game with Aero on. Go figure.
