  1. Hello! I many times try run my usb wifi dongle in 9x, and now, after four years owning this device, i can say - it work! u can look on my screenshots: in this post i want say, how u can do it for our devices... post will periodically updating. ===== what need having for experiments: WDMEX from rloew. i am sorrry, but w/o this u need yourself implement one stupid function - NdisInitializeString. W/o this function driver RT2870.SYS (and many other drivers for 2k/xp) is just not starting - we see error code 2 or 10 in DM. So i assume, that u have implementation of NdisInitializeString. if so, can continue. one NdisInitializeString is not enuogh. driver req some other imports, which i can close old good WDMSTUB. after this, i check in debugger, that driver loaded w/o errors, and try using it with help Odyssey, but w/o good results. adapter was present in DM, but not present in Network Properties. then i try ME, and immediately get results! i connect to my router and can out in Internet. but on 98 it not work. Sweetlow say me, that support NDIS5 in 9x is poor, and recommend use NDIS3. i try, and all success. here i attach my work inf file for Ralink driver version date 27.Dec.2010. this driver work with Odyssey 4.52 and WPA2 AES. Most new version from official site can not connect... this inf req UR work. U MUST manually add into VID/PID for our device! DWA140.INF
  2. Looked thru topics in here but none seemed to contain easy-to-apply solution, so posting. Just an hour ago one of my relatives deleted 3 rather important files from pendrive. The Device is one of the 2 GB craps they share here and there for advertising purposes, and it's like 8 years old stuff, ~600Mb of free space. Files to recover are measured in kilobytes. 'Deleter' was told to stop using pendrive just after the accident so these should be able to recover. I looked thru different reviews of free/shardeware/trial/will-install-you-tons-of-crapware recovery programs, downloaded one that seemed to be safe and tried my best. It has shown list of deleted files properly, but recovery returned only garbage files (they were saved to HDD JFYI). I have DMDE I have downloaded some time ago, but certainly I'm to lame to do the right thing within a reasonable time. Also, pendrive is used for sharing personal data and there is no way I will publicly share it's image. If someone can recommend some free software that contains no crapware and will do its job, I'll be pleased. Musn't be freeware in fact, 10-minutes trial should be enough. If this requires more work with low-level tools, I'm willing to cooperate.
  3. I've run into a question that I can't really find any good answers on. It kind of runs across different topics 1. I'm looking for things on how to make a USB drive bootable for things like DOS/98/Me/XP, but I'm finding a lot more about rigging up install disks for Windows 7, 8.1, and nothing much more than automated "format" programs. One thing I need to pick up...but however... 2. I already have some custom boot discs in storage I made from when I transitioned things from floppy to CD that I'd like to pull out and preserve... then 3. There's this whole disk image format that I see in some of the VMs... So, how do I proceed on this in order to back up my boot CDs and then be able to use them in such a way that I can install things onto a VM or straight boot from them off of USB drive? Also, is there anything else that I haven't thought of?
  4. Well, here it is folks. USB Support for Windows 95 - simplified. This is essentially "NUSB for Windows 95" except for the fact that no USB 2.0 drivers exist for Windows 95. No hoops to jump through. No multiple packages to install. No endless searching for USB storage drivers that work. This package has been a long time in the making, and would not be possible without our good friend rloew, who has created a universal USB storage driver that is Windows 95 compatible. Click here to download: XUSBSUPP.ZIP So without repeating myself, here is the "ReadMe" for the package, which will provide further details. ========================================================= XUSBSUPP - eXtended USB Supplement for Windows 95 OSR 2.x Version 1.0 July 15, 2014 Copyright © 2014 Conner McCoy (LoneCrusader) & Rudolph Loew (rloew) ========================================================= OVERVIEW: This unofficial update package for Windows 95 OSR 2.x (95B and 95C) combines all of the original Microsoft USB Supplement packages and HotFixes ever issued for USB support under Windows 95 along with a universal USB Mass Storage Device driver solution for Windows 95 into one stand alone installer. This package is similar in function and intent to "NUSB" - a popular unofficial update for Windows 98 Second Edition. Once installed, no other third-party drivers will be required for USB Mass Storage devices and they will simply "plug and play" as they do under Windows ME, 2000, or XP. A "Safe Disconnect & Removal" utility is also provided that will appear in the System Tray when a device is connected and functions like Windows ME, 2000, or XP. This package is intended to be used on a new, clean installation of Windows 95 OSR2. It is not recommended for use under other circumstances or conditions and has not been tested under other circumstances or conditions. Do NOT install this package on a system where the original Microsoft USB Supplement (USBSUPP.EXE) has already been installed, as it will DESTROY the backups created for uninstalling the original Microsoft package. ========================================================= INSTALLATION: WITH A NEW INSTALLATION OF WINDOWS: 1.) Install your new Windows 95 OSR2 system. 2.) When Windows 95 SETUP is complete, reboot your system. 3.) When your system has rebooted, open Control Panel, System, Device Manager. 4.) Remove all unknown "Other devices" from the list of hardware. 5.) Run XUSBSUPP.EXE and follow the prompts. 6.) As the system reboots, follow the prompts to install drivers for USB devices. 7.) When the Desktop has loaded, connect a USB Storage Device and proceed as you would with any later version of Windows. WITH AN EXISTING INSTALLATION OF WINDOWS: ***NOTE that this package must not be used with USBSUPP.EXE already installed.*** 1.) If USBSUPP.EXE or any other package that provides USB drivers has been installed, each must be uninstalled and you must reboot before proceeding. 2.) Start with a clean boot of your system. Do not perform any other tasks prior to beginning this installation. 3.) Open Control Panel, System, Device Manager. 4.) Remove all remaining USB devices (if any) and all unknown "Other devices" from the list of hardware. 5.) Run XUSBSUPP.EXE and follow the prompts. 6.) As the system reboots, follow the prompts to install drivers for USB devices. 7.) When the Desktop has loaded, connect a USB Storage Device and proceed as you would with any later version of Windows. ========================================================= UNINSTALLATION: 1.) Open Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs. 2.) Select "eXtended USB Supplement to Windows 95 OSR 2.x" and click "Add/Remove." 3.) Follow the prompts and reboot your system. 4.) Be aware that two empty folders will remain inside your Windows directory, namely \SYSTEM32 and \SYSTEM32\DRIVERS. If these folders are empty they may be safely deleted. 5.) Be aware that copies of USB.INF, RLUSB95.INF, or other INFs contained in this package may exist in the \INF\OTHER folder if placed there by Windows 95. They should be removed manually to prevent confusion if other drivers are used. ========================================================= CONTENTS: This unofficial package contains the following files, listed by the original official update or third-party package that contained them. The file name will be followed by its corresponding version number or in cases where no version number is available the original timestamp will be used. Files that were included in an earlier update and later superseded by a HotFix will be listed under the latest HotFix. Files that have been modified from their original version will be denoted by a "*MODIFIED FOR XUSBSUPP" notation. -Files included in original USB Supplement and files later superseded: USBSUPP.EXE Original Microsoft Package v.4.03.1214 - Windows 95 C CD-ROM AUTOEXEC.BAT Thursday, April 10, 1997 12:14:00 PM CONAGENT.EXE Thursday, April 10, 1997 12:14:00 PM DETROIT.INF *MODIFIED FOR XUSBSUPP DEVLIB.EXE Thursday, April 10, 1997 12:14:00 PM IMAGE.INF *MODIFIED FOR XUSBSUPP IMAGECLS.SYS 4.03.1212 KRNL386.EXE 4.03.1212 LICENSE.TXT *MODIFIED FOR XUSBSUPP NODRIVER.INF *MODIFIED FOR XUSBSUPP REDIRECT.MOD Thursday, April 10, 1997 12:14:00 PM RPLCLDR.EXE Thursday, April 10, 1997 12:14:00 PM SPOOLSS.DLL 4.03.1212 USB.INF *MODIFIED FOR XUSBSUPP USBCAMD.SYS 4.03.1212 USBD.SYS 4.03.1214 VCOND.VXD 4.03.1212 VFWWDM.DRV 4.03.1214 VFWWDM32.DLL 4.03.1214 VMCPD.VXD 4.03.1212 VPICD.VXD 4.03.1212 VTD.VXD 4.03.1212 VWIN32.VXD 4.03.1212 VXDLDR.VXD 4.03.1212 WINOA386.MOD 4.03.1212 USBUPD2.EXE Original Microsoft Package - Windows 95 C CD-ROM *ALL FILES IN THIS ORIGINAL UPDATE ARE SUPERSEDED AMDK6UPD.EXE Original Microsoft HotFix - MSKB Q192841 & Q234259 NTKERN.VXD 4.03.1213 247965USA5.EXE Original Microsoft HotFix - MSKB Q247965 VMM.VXD 4.03.1217 USBUP.EXE Original Microsoft HotFix - MSKB Q181499 OPENHCI.SYS 4.03.1217 HUBUPD.EXE Original Microsoft HotFix - MSKB Q189284 USBHUB.SYS 4.03.1218 e7kusb9p.exe OEM Update Package from Toshiba UHCD.SYS 4.03.1218 175086US5.EXE Original Microsoft HotFix - MSKB Q175086 KERNEL32.DLL 4.03.1216 *SUPERSEDED BELOW BY UNOFFICIAL BUG PATCH -Files added to correct known bugs and to expand functionality: 249070USA5.EXE Original Microsoft HotFix - MSKB Q188803 & Q245583 & Q249070 MSGSRV32.EXE 4.00.1112 Solves Plug & Play lockups on some systems DISKUPD.EXE Original Microsoft HotFix - MSKB Q214522 DISKVSD.VXD 4.00.1114 Solves misreported sizes for USB disks W95Y2K.EXE Original Microsoft Update - MSKB Q225050 & Q225053 CFGMGR32.DLL 4.10.1422 SETUPAPI.DLL 4.00 CFGMGR32.DLL required by HOTPLUG.EXE These two DLL's are usually paired so both included KERNEL32.ZIP KERNEL32 2GiB BUG PATCH FOR WINDOWS 95B/95C KERNEL32.DLL 4.03.1217 RRL This patch corrects file copy errors with files larger than 2GB and is provided as free software from Rudolph R.

Loew. ========================================================= KNOWN LIMITATIONS: This package does not provide a driver for USB 2.0, as no such drivers exist for Windows 95. Many hours were spent by the authors searching for a compatible driver, and many hours were spent in experimentation trying to get Windows 98-compatible USB 2.0 drivers to load with no success. This package does not provide a driver for USB 3.0, as no such drivers exist for any version of Windows 9x. This package does not provide a driver for USB-HID or USB peripheral devices such as keyboards, mice, or joysticks. While some very early ("embryonic" shall we say) and incomplete work was done in this area by Microsoft (see the Windows NT4 DDK), unfortunately none of the sample driver files provided actually work. If anyone knows how to make the Microsoft files from the DDK work and can successfully demonstrate this, or knows of any working third-party USB peripheral drivers for Windows 95, please inform the authors of this package. This package enables the use of USB-connected optical drives, but does not provide a driver for the UDF filesystem frequently used on CD\DVD\Blu-Ray discs. Visit Rudolph R. Loew's homepage at for a suitable driver. When unistalling this package, two nested folders will remain in your Windows directory, specifically the folders \SYSTEM32 and \SYSTEM32\DRIVERS. If these folders are empty, they may be safely deleted. This package does not remove them due to a limitation in the Windows 95 version of WININIT.EXE. ========================================================= LICENSE AGREEMENT AND LEGAL ISSUES: This package is provided as free software by Conner McCoy and Rudolph Loew, hereinafter referred to as "authors."

  5. Hello. I'm looking for some information about deploying a custom sysprepped image of windows xp via USB. I know this OS is old but it's still used quite a bit in businesses some legacy apps don't play well with windows 7. I'm ok with installing the reference image, configuring the software and creating the answer file. What i'm wondering about are the steps that come after that. What do I do then? I know for windows 7 i captured install.wim and replaced this on the install media sources directory. But what about windows xp? I've not seen any .wim files on the install media. I've seen a bit of software available for installing windows xp from usb. But I want a fully updated pre-configured sysprepped xp sp3 with all the latest lan/wlan drives. I know how to inject these drivers to the image already. But how do i get a fully installed/configured windows xp back to winxp.iso with all my customizations? is it possible? Please can someone assist me with the next steps. Thanks.
  6. I seem to be unable to create a "fully" working multiboot/install DVD using the "Create Windows 98/ME/NT/2K/XP/2003 all in one installation DVD" I replaced Windows 2003 with Windows 95 (Version C) as I planned to put 2003 on a different DVD with newer versions of windows on it. When I try booting any of the disk I put on there they show an error about not being able to find the setup/installation files. For some reason Win 95 - ME will still work if I type "setup" (D:\WinME\setup for Windows ME installer) and continue normally. Windows NT 4.0 doesn't boot at all and when I attempt editing the iso and add the I386 for WinNT to the root folder it will boot but BSDO when setup starts. Windows 2000 and XP both boot but fail to start at all giving me a "insert Win 2000/XP disk into drive A:" error and I can't find a way to fix that at all. I use UltraEdit (Version and Oracle VirtualBox (Version 4.3.30 r 10610 64-Bit) on Windows 10 Tech Preview 64-Bit (Build 10270) to build/test the ISO. Message me for images/files if you need them. If anyone has any ideas please help or suggest another method of combining these disk to a DVD Iso or USB drive. Guide I used: Link to images of the errors/iso: P.S.: If I posted this to the wrong forum section, just feel free to tell me where it should be or move it there if possible.
  7. Hi, I am trying to understand the usb support or non-support problem of Win95. The usb support files of OSR 2.5 extent Win95 with several files and especially with the NTKERN.VXD which include the usb wdm stack, I think. Inside that file there are some strings which points to HAL.DLL and ntoskrnl.exe. I believe that this two files are inline of NTKERN.VXD, could this be right and how will these two files used by the other driver files like usbd.sys? Sadly, I couldn't find any tools like 'Dependency Walker' or 'PE Explorer' for files in LE format to analyze vxd files. Perhaps someone can help me.
  8. This problem has been making me rip my hair out in large clumps... and I've reformatted this ****ing thing about 17 times in one night solid. Whenever I install Windows 98SE, install DirectX 9.0c, and then the Unofficial Service Pack 3 and reboot, things seem to be fine, however some USB Devices won't work until I install the USB 2.0 stack (from USBStack.exe that U98SESP3 puts into /windows/system/). But now, the problem is, once I install that, and reboot, my Windows 98 hangs on boot if there are any USB Devices plugged in. If I leave them unplugged, it boots fine. Once I plug everything back in, I get an NTKERN.VXD error, and the devices still do not work. I fixed the NTKERN.VXD error by copying NTKERN.VXD from /VMM32 into /System, however, the hang on boot is still there. I have no way of uninstalling the USB2.0 Stack from Add/Remove Programs, and I have no clue how to solve my current problems. I think I might have f***ed up too by not deleting the right files/infs before installing USBStack.exe. I want to get rid of the thing entirely and fix this problem, and perhaps install NUSB instead, but I don't know where I should begin. *sigh* I'm really getting p***ed off and stressed with this thing. I've already spent an entire week trying to figure this out... time wasted when I could be actually using a functional system and doing something productive. Is there anyone out there who can help me sort this problem out?
  9. I'd like to apologise if this has been asked before, but I searched and didn't find the answer I was looking for. In 1.2, the Windows 7 "setup folder" method of creating a USB installer seems to be missing (a previous beta version had that feature where you can point to a directory containing Windows 7 setup files/directories). Is that no longer supported in favor of ISO to USB or are there steps I am not aware of in creating a Windows Setup using a source from a directory? Please advise, thank you.
  10. Hello everyone, I have Toshiba laptop with preinstalled Windows 7 on it, and was recently trying to install XP S3 on it instead. I don't know how many hour I have spent on this installation since I always seem to run into new error/problem just after I get rid of previous one. I've managed to add all needed drivers to istallation using nLite and finally everything was running smoothely untill i was asked to format partition so XP can be installed on it, but my problem is that it don't matter if i choose NTFS or NTFS (fast) formatting, it gets stuck right after start with following information: I've tried using advanced option in nLite, Minimal memory requiment, but it didn't change anything. Also adding: into [Data] section in WINNT.sif file doesn' work either. Does anyone know possible solution for this situation? Thanks for your time.
  11. Hello, do you know if there are monitors (not TV, due to taxes in my country) capable of playing videos directly from an usb stick or an SD card, without a pc? I'd like to create a playlist to loop in my office. Thanks!
  12. Hi everyone! I´ve been stuck with this problem for more than a year trying to run an Autoit program within the WPI program Please help me to get some mind relief, here`s the line Run ("F:\Install\ENCHULAR\WMASTERPRO\WallpaperMasterProV1.51.exe") the problem is that WPI in not always the letter drive F where the WPI is located. So how can get around this problem? Any help is aprreciated!
  13. Hope you find this useful... An easy2boot USB drive will boot most linux ISO files just by copying over the linux iveCD ISO files. To add a Win98SE Install ISO, you need to delete all unnecessary folders and rename the ISO file to have the .isoDOS01 file extension. You can then boot directly from the USB drive and choose the Win98SE ISO from the menu. For more details see here. The same principle should work for most DOS-based Install ISOs (as long as you keep the files numbers down by pruning!).
  14. Hello! There are many similar topics regarding Windows 8 deployment... I tried to google and check out as many as I could. Wasn able to solve my issue though. I'm writing here, hoping that someone might be able to help me out. I am trying to deploy Windows 8 put problems with starting it. I have new Samsung laptop, where I have installed Windows 8 Pro. Iinstalled programs, created user-accounts etc.Then I bootel laptop from USB WinPE media and captured C:\ drive as a *.WIM file. So far everyting OK. I got second laptop (same model). Booted it also from Winpe USB media and used Diskpart to clean-create partition and format it as NTFS. I created just this one partition. On that partition I applyed the wery-same image that I previously created. Image was applyed and then started problems. --> bcdboot c:\windows is not working. --> Failure when attemting to copy boot files. --> I also tried bcdboot c:\windows /s c: --> Boot files successfully created. But after this OS isnt booting, still. Anyway, this is where I got stuck. Please help me out.
