Why do you need this method if you copy the drivers directory to your hard-drive?
On my CD I have the following directories for my drivers:
what do I put here?
And that line you posted is inside the presetup.cmd is it? you don't really know this method.

I have a problem during an installation of a hp d230m
During the hardware setup in gui setup a blue screen appears with an error message, that there is a problem with the portcls.sys.
There is no way to install this computer with the driver pack.
I used the sound, graphics, chipset and lan packages in the newest version.
I hope, that anybody can help me.
Thx a lot
I removed the sound pack and the blue screen does not appear. But I don't want to solve the problem in this way.

Björn_2, update DriverPacks_BASE to v6.01. The problem has just been fixed.
I used DriverPacks_BASE v6.01 but the problem exists anymore. I tried to integrate the KB888111 Hotfix myself with the KB888111.exe /integrate: method and the integrate-method of base 6.01. But nothing work.
I think, that there is a wrong driver windows tried to install. Is it possible to get out which driver will be installed during T-35?

Actually i am using Pyrons method(presetup.cmd, updated setup.ex files and all stuffs) as it helps to inculde custom drivers and all.
Everything works fine till i found my svcpack.inf is not working.I was thinking like others that there was some problem with pyrons method.
Then as evilvoice suggested(not to me,but in the forum) i tried running setup form my orginal setup.ex removing pyrons setup.ex,but still couldn't have svcpak.inf running. So i understood there wasnt and it isn't because of any problem with pyrons method but there is some other basic problem that needs to be sorted out first
Then i went down to check everything from the scratch.That search ended in my svcpack.inf file where in the version part it was given as :
;Windows XP [Version] Signature=" NT$" MajorVersion=5 MinorVersion=1 BuildNumber=2600
which is incorrect and it was supposed to be like this for XP
[Version] Signature="$Windows NT$" MajorVersion=5 MinorVersion=1 BuildNumber=2600
Actually i have done all my initial work on unattended Xp from Alanoll unattended windows guide. Its a nice guide and i should thank allonol for his wonderful compilation work.
But this small error is there which needs to be corrected.
Allanol if you happen to read this hope you will correct that mistake.
Hope this experiece of mine will help someone else in their cause.
NB: I havent gone full throught this forum and if anyone has pointed out this earlier please ignore this.

I've been trying to follow through the installation of the Bashrat's driverpacks and seem to have been successful in running the 'Run_me.cmd' file. I'm interested in integrating the whole set of driverpacks.
I followed through the steps required and I now have with a 'WinXPSp2_integrated' folder which is sitting a 722MB.
This is the bit I am stuck at.
How do I fit this on a CD? (or do I?)
I can use the RVM_Integrator to create an ISO which takes it to 747MB which obviously won't fit on a CD so do I put it on a DVD or is there something I missed in the initial setup of the integration.

anyone knows why when I use the Driverpacks and add them to my RIS installation it does not do the cmdlines.txt anymore. Therefore also does not run the RunOnceEx.cmd.
Does this has to do with the setup.ex_ and the setuporg.exe?

I am asking for some advice, on remote Unattended installation.
I have been installing both Xp and Windows2000 remotely on to PC and laptop's recently with no problems at all, and it has made life a lot easier. Recently I was presented with a new PC to carry out a remote installation of windows 2000 plus other applications, and at the time thought this should be easy, how wrong I was!
The New PC uses SATA RAID disks, after reading through the doc's I installed win2000 remotely, so far so good, upon bootup, the Windows 2000 setup message F6, install third Party SCSI or Raid adapter. pressing F6 and "S" to select the A drive, the process of copying the files began, after a short while a message appear:
Setup cannot copy the file: aar81xx.sys from the floppy
This happened for other files on the floppy : aar81xx.inf
This I tried several times with new floppy disks with no success and eventually, I decided to install Windows 2000 server by hand directly onto the new PC, along with the floppy disk containing the driver, no problems were observed and the system booted correctly.
I have looked around the forums for a possible solution to my problem, and wondered if PYRONS method would resolve the above but ideally, I wish to save the files from the drivers floppy disk onto the remote server and install them automatically. I have done this with other drivers for network cards with no problems, it appears the SATA RAID driver needs more work to install and configure it remotely.
Any help on the above would be much appreciated, I can give more information on my configuration if this is needed right now.

Setup cannot copy the file: aar81xx.sys from the floppy[/q]
Please, do not use oempreinstall=Yes in unattenden anserver file.
If oempreinstall=Yes F6 not work.

Would reduce the string length in the DevicePath in registry.
I have some problems where I have a lot of folders in my Drivers folder, making the SetDevicePath.exe not working.
If I remove some folders it works fine.
For example I have a audio driver for an IBM Intellistation where there are 20 subfolders with language files.
The same with an audio driver for an IBM M55.
I think I could remove some of those folders, but I not sure.
Anyway if the SetDevicePath.exe only added folders with an INF file in it, it would reduce the length of the string a lot.
For now my DevicePath in registry is 15077 characters long
I found this http://www.vernalex....tools/spdrvscn/
But dont know (yet) if it can be run from the presetup.cmd file.
This one only adds folders with an INF file in it.
Just tested, it works flawless on Windows XP.
My DevicePath in registry is now 1804 characters
Other ideas are welcome

The driveletter of the CD is searched first:
for %%i in (c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z) do if exist "%%i:%tagfile%" set CDDRIVE=%%i:
(thanks to serialsz for the shorter version, slightly modified)
Remark: note that the tagfile might be different for you. You might have to change it to '\WIN51IP' or '\WIN51.SP2'.
I have a question about this part. My installation source has WIN51 and WIN51IP and WIN51.sp2. Since it says I might have to change it, which of the three I listed should I use?

7. edit TXTSETUP.SIF directly under [SourceDisksFiles] to include the following entries:
setupORG.exe = 1,,,,,,,2,0,0
presetup.cmd = 1,,,,,,,2,0,0
These two are absolutely neccessary, everything else can come from CD later on.
There are different sections with the SourceDisksFiles. Which one do I put those two above entries under? The first one?
Posted 19 December 2006 - 05:50 PM
1) Choose one file, it can be anything, the file acts as a "marker" only.
2) It's under the first [SourceDisksFiles] only.

So far I've been working with both AutoIt and WPI to try to get one of them to start using Dependency Walker to see what files are required for these programs to work but still no luck.

What else do I need to change in the Presetup.cmd to make this work

I made on my DVD a directory named Drivers. It has many subdirs with extracted drivers of all driverpacks. it is about 1.4 GB. I know, but I have space on the DVD, why I have to extract file to my hard drive? Thats the problem. After presetup.cmd my system is frozen, the DVD drive is working-working, but nothing happens. Interesting: with virtualbox (wmvare like software, but free) it is OK.
One time I left my computer to work, after about 1 hour the setup continued and every hardware was recognised correctly.
Is it normal?
Other: I made a service DVD with BartPE. I made a little change in the PROGRAMS hive: I modified the DevicePath key to point on my DVD/Drivers subdir (and recursively ofc. It is about a 15000 byte long field...). Same as before: during recognising my HW, the system was hunged up, DVD was worked also. I ejected the DVD, but the system was too busy to continue, I think it tried to solve the path of my drivers. No error messages or something similar.
Can anyone help me?
(Sorry about my english... Maybe everybody understood me! )
