HFSLIP64 v1.1.5 released

None that I can see. It was just "more stubborn" compared to XP :)

After rerunning xp x64 with the release just before the one you just posted, a lot of things are missing like internet explorer. The folder is in program files but its empty. Same for media player. Im going to re do it just to make sure nothing was corrupt. This is also on a different machine using VMware 6.0.

I never had the problem you're just mentioning and I'm also using VMware 6.0.

Make sure you got the latest plugins (if you're using any).

Did you see any error messages during Windows setup?

Does C:\WINDOWS\setuperr.log show anything post installation?

I forgot to slipstream service pack 2 is one problem. I moved machines, I was working at home this weekend. Even after slipstreaming service pack 2, its still giving me lots of errors in setuperr.log with .exe files.

a small suggestion. don't slipstream sp2 every time, just slipstream it once and use that as your source, will save a lot of time and you obviously won't be forgetting to slipstream it again ;)

Oh i know. I forgot to copy the source I was using at work so that I could use it at home. For whatever reason, the source im using at home is acting weird. I just checksums and everything. The exact same.

Removed winnt.sif, plugins, and changed in hfanswer.ini installrc=1 to installrc=. I'm rerunning now.

Must be something in my winnt.sif file that it doesnt like. I removed that and it installs properly.

I don't know much about WINNT.SIF myself, but you can always attach it here if you like (after blanking out sensitive data). Maybe there is something that catches my eye.

BTW... The INSTALLRC variable has no effect as HFSLIP64 doesn't have code that handles installation of the Recovery Console. See the default HFANSWER.INI that's linked from the first post in this thread for a list of variables that you can predefine.

The only thing that looks suspicious to me is the AutomaticUpdates variable. What happens if you comment it out?

Same thing. I'm commenting out oempreinstall and oemskipwelcome and rerunning.

There's always the possibility that one or more hotfixes are incompatible with WINNT.SIF, just like you can no longer use the branding options if you slipstream IE7 into XP 32-bit.

Well... That's about all I can say on WINNT.SIF. I'm sorry.

Removed automaticupdates and the driverpolicy parameters. No errors in setuperr.log

Well... It isn't the AutomaticUpdates setting (at least, that's what you said earlier).

But the DriverSigningPolicy variable could be a problem now that I think about it.

HFSLIP has always set Driver Signing to "Ignore" at T-13 via a registry edit (so actually you don't need to do that) but I once tried to have it injected into the registry through an INF file that is installed from TXTSETUP.SIF (at the end of txtmode copy). When I did that, I got all sorts of error messages during Windows setup. So I think Windows setup can't handle "tampering" (as Microsoft calls it) with the Driver Signing Policy setting at such an early stage if hotfixes are slipstreamed. It seems to be OK at T-13.

Not only that, but the NonDriverSigning value isn't used in anything but Win2K - it's ignored in XP and 2003 sysprep processing, so that might well cause problems too.

Here is a new error im getting. This is the most recent version hfslip using plugins since I fixed my error.

OK... I can see why that's happening. HFSLIP64 sets the value to "21" in the beginning, and then HFANSWER.INI is polled but the default HFANSWER.INI I had online (v1 and v2) blanks it out again. Please set the value to 21 (or any value between 10 and 21) in HFANSWER.INI or grab v3 of the default HFANSWER.INI.

I'm in the process of improving the code that handles DRIVER.CAB and SPX.CAB a bit. I'll also try to find a way to work around the problem you're having should the user have manually entered an invalid value.

Just ran. No problems at all. So, can't use DriverSigningPolicy = "Ignore". Trying 2003 now.

Everything is working thus far with 1.0.0 rc. Is WMP11 not far down the road ? I know this isnt specific to hfslip, but what about the .net maker for x64 ? I was thinking about looking at it.
