  1. Thanks for the info, but I want to do all that I've explained before except that I want it on an unattended install. I don't want to install windows and then try to remove and update each component by last links. By the way. Does anyone know how to make the boot disk for Windows 2000 SP4. My Windows is in Spanish. I hope you can help.
  2. KiLLERHOLiC. I know that Windows XP is too very different but somewhere on this forum I found a topic that talks a little about placing some windows xp functions on windows 98 through the Service Pack 2 implementation. And some kind of tips on how to integrate Windows ME updates, but im not too sure about that. They say it can be done but I haven't tried. I just don't simple remove the graphics drivers because I want to be able to select in one way what drivers to remove from each category. I have 5 pcs at home and building 5 discs (one for each pc) isn't a good solution. I need to keep some drivers and remove others. Thanks for your help
  3. I wanna know if there's a way to upgrade Windows 98, ME with Windows XP components and updates. For example would be interesting to have a Windows 98 as secure as Windows XP is. According to Microsoft when you have a valid license of Windows XP or whatever operating system that is superior to an older os. You also have license over that operating system. Is something called Retroactivity, so I think is not illegal to apply updates to older os when you have license of a newer os. I wanna update Windows 98 with new drivers, apply new hotfixes and to wide the compatibility. Could someone please tell me how can be done? I need Windows 98 because there's older PCs that only support it and I have license of Windows XP. Still nowadays too many people uses Windows 95 and 98. By the way, I know there're a lot of Driver Packs provided for other MSFN's members but I wanna make this whole process on a Windows 98 and the drivers pack are in English but my language is Spanish. Some of you put the driver packs, thanks for that , but that does not work for me if you don't explain how to do that with other windows languages or how to get the files in a particular language. About Windows XP I wanna ask if someboy knows a way to identify the drivers contained on DRIVERS.CAB, this is because when I install my PC I use to use nLite to do so, but how my video card is a GForce FX 5200 windows XP SP2 installs an updated driver that I don't wanna use because is causing me a lot of troubles. I have to remove all the drivers for Graphics Adapters to force the installation of my driver, I don't want this 'cause it makes my Windows lose compatibility and useless to install drivers when I install new hardware (I do this very often). What files must I seek for, What is need to change, Can I use this to add new drivers? Please answer ASAP
  4. I agree with you. That is what I did. I extracted the i386 folder from the recovery cds or partition, then downloaded the boot files and hex edited them. Applied the SP2 (or whateaver you want use), them make a few changes here and there and im using my OEM XP Home, extracted directly from my recovery. I can guide you trought the full process and have it working in few days. Just contact me when you're ready to go and we start doing that special CD with your XP out of the trash.
  5. Fezik, don't go so fast!. I also have a laptop pc, Mine's HP Pavilion zt1135 and I also made this with my recovery cds. The utility to make the boot disks its only to extract the files needed to built the boot sector. We're going to change some bytes on that files to make a bootable CD or DVD with this files. A floopy isn't needed. If you want try we can try. Doesn't matter if you don't wanna apply the SP2, we can try it out with your current files. Do you wanna try yet? If you're planning still using SP1 then you will need these files instead the SP2 ones. This one is if you wanna use XP Pro http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...&displaylang=en And this for XP Home http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...&displaylang=en
  6. Bi0haZarD, I made this process on an HP 505n, but I suppose the process must be similar because this people use to use the same software to create their recoveries. We can try it out! Since this people fusions the Windows XP with some prereleases versions of Service Pack 1. The desintegration must be done applying a superior update like Service Pack 2. If not trash could remain. I use service pack 2 and I haven't had any trouble with a clean an automated install with my method. This is the utility to create the boot disks for SP2: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...&displaylang=en You must extract all this files on a separate folder with an utility like WinImage Please send the info I request or I couldn't help you.
  7. Hello Again. To start I need to know if you are using recovery cds or a recovery partition. The second step is let me know the structure of the medium to know what can be done. To process the whole thing you would need: 1. Windows XP SP2 2. nLite tool 3. Windows XP SP2 Boot discs 4. A hex editor 5. Your Windows XP CD 6. ModifyPE I need more info to know how are the files on your recovery medium. I had a computer with a recovery partition, without any discs, but I wanted to have apart the Windows CD for install without the trash that computer stores put on. Then I asked HP if there were any trouble doing this and they say its perfectly OK to do it if I use the original files and the serial on the hologram label pasted on the PC.
  8. Let me guess. You're trying to get out your Windows Home OEM from the recovery cds? If this is the case I can help you, this is quite very easy and I've done this before and i know is legal because i asked to the company i bought my pc from. Explain it with details and I could help you. Send me messages and i will answer.
  9. Thanks for the help maxXPsoft. I've been checking and found out a lot of stuff to work around. But it could be a big help to know exactly which of the five hundred .in_ files are the really needed to separate from the setup the components and drivers. My idea is to develop a tool that not only allows windows reduction but also allows integration of new components instead old ones and that at the same time a user can attemp to apply the several tweaks explained on the different forums. I wanna do a multiple windows customizer. That different than nLite allows customization of all windows versions. Please respond everyone that knows something about this topic. Im interesting in getting data and at the same time I wanna learn. I would been checking the forum for answers. Thanks people!
  10. I just wanna know on what files and what I must look for to start recollecting data to perform my own customization software of a Windows Me, XP installation CD. How do you know what files are requiered to install Movie Maker, Media Player, IE, etc? On what files do you look at? To start I need to know what files contains the requiered data to divide the components and allow selection and having that I can allow the installation of new attachments or remove unnecesary windows components. In what INI files and on what sections or how do you know how each component is composed? I've created many successful unattended DVD and CD windows installation and i have many ideas to create software better than nLite to customize our Windows CDs also new as old versions. Please if you know something about or could give me clues that would be a big help. Thanks a lot, please write here all you can about that. I would check it out later.

I was wondering if someone of you please can help me by telling me how exactly you do to remove or add windows components on Windows Me also as on Windows XP. I know nLite and similar software do this without any trouble by im kinda curious of knowing how do they do this. I have checked the windows files. Im a programmer and im sure i could do a better software to custom my windows installation. But my poor knowledge about how to get the list of files stops me. Does anyone knows what files i need to look for and how to compile the requiered files that for the package of, for example, Windows Movie Maker, Media Player, Internet Explorer, etc. I also noticed there are only tools to custom XP and I want to make mine to other windows versions. Please if you know how to do this tell me. I wanna start my own project. Thanks a lot for any help you can bring.
