Let me see... I've not used anything like this before...
OS I'm using: Windows XP Pro SP2 - completely updated save SP3 (which I'm holding off on)
nLite vers: 184.108.40.206
Source is from my personal copy of XP Pro. Was copied to a HDD folder with standard copy protocol.
BIOS: Set to look for the optical drive first. It is booting from the optical.
CD - runs perfectly when inserted. I don't see the file VIASATA.inf in the root. Not sure if nLite "folds" it into another file when it processes. Am I supposed to see VIASATA.inf in the root or elsewhere? There are two other files in the WinXP folder of the driver disk - a .sys file and a .cat file. Should those have been included? NLite said to ensure only the INF was ticked.
Told nLite to make a disk image. Burned diskimage image with UltraISO - selected "Burn Cd/DVD image".
Quote - In order to see the repair option you will have to run the Unattended section and select Prompt Repair under Unattended Mode - I wasn't aware of that option. I've redone the entire project again to incorporate it.
I think what you've pointed out is that my sources in the "source" folder get modified. So in order to re-do this, I've made a fresh and unadulterated copy of the orig XP install media again.
Why do I need a repair install? Long story. Basically I cloned from a 160gB HDD to a 500gB HDD using Acronis TrueImage. But there is a problem somehow with the Shadow Volume Copy service/process. Any back up of the new drive, yields a BSOD - Bad_Pool_Header - stop code 19 - even using XP's native backup util. SFC yields no negative results. Chkdsk runs through without error. So, I'm attempting to set up a repair install to see if I can fix whatever corruption is causing this. Nonetheless, ultimately I may have to re-install from zero - which means I'll need the SATA driver(s) on the install media anyway.
I've redone it from scratch. At this point I'm going to hold off burning anything and will wait for an opinion about LastSession.ini.
