second part - installation - plz help

17 posts in this topic

hi guys,

thanx for this awesome tool! ;)

but i do have a problem to reach the second part - get error code for e.g. hal.dll/ntoskrnl..

i think the solution is the boot.ini, but how to solve???

geometry hd0:
drive 0x80(LBA): C/H/S=121/255/63, Sector Count/Size=1943865/512
Partition num: 0, active, filesystem type is fat, partition type 0x06

geometry hd1:
drive 0x81(LBA): C/H/S=1024/255/63, Sector Count/Size=16450560/512
Partition num: 0, active, filesystem type is ntfs, partition type 0x07

thanx for your support! ;)

What do you have in boot.ini on the USB stick?

As I get it you have one partition only on the internal hard disk, where Windows is being installed to, right?

use this:

[Boot Loader]
Timeout=20
Default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[Operating Systems]
C:\btsec\XPSTP.bs="1. Begin TXT Mode Setup Windows XP, Never unplug USB-Drive Until Logon"
multi(0)disk(1)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Continue GUI Setup + Start XP from HD 0 - Part 1" /FASTDETECT
multi(0)disk(1)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Continue GUI Setup + Start XP from HD 1 - Part 1" /FASTDETECT
multi(0)disk(1)rdisk(1)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Continue GUI Setup + Start XP from HD 1 - Part 2" /FASTDETECT
multi(0)disk(1)rdisk(1)partition(3)\WINDOWS="Continue GUI Setup + Start XP from HD 1 - Part 3" /FASTDETECT
multi(0)disk(1)rdisk(2)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Continue GUI Setup + Start XP from HD 2 - Part 1" /FASTDETECT

tested with all of this options, but doesn't work?!

Did you delete ALL partitions during Setup and create a new one?

Are you using modified Windows, which may install in another directory, not Windows?

Zip and attach winnt.sif in ~BT folder and txtsetup.sif from USB root.

What Windows version are you installing?

That's weird. :wacko:

Do you have any USB card reader, mobile phone, iPod etc. connected to the computer being installed?

Did the Text mode part work fine, no errors, missing files etc. ?

Just edit boot.ini on the USB stick changing all disk(1) to disk(0).

How did it get changed in first place? What you posted is not default boot.ini...

In TXT-mode you should NOT delete partition, but just select the C: partition on which you want to Install XP and then Quick Format with NTFS FileSystem.

If for some reason you delete the partition, you have to go TWICE through first part of TXT-mode Setup in order to prevent your problem.

See http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=111406

New Harddisk and Creating Partitions after Booting from USB-Drive:

Direct after Deleting and Creating New partitions, Quit XP Setup with F3

OR Switch OFF your Computer and Boot in any case from USB-Drive again and

Run 1. TXT Mode Setup again so that DriveLetters get their Correct Value

So in this case one Boots ** TWICE ** in the TXT-mode Setup XP

Hmm, my lengthy post disappeared...

Anyway,

like this:

...

You need to add another line, just below C:\btsec\XPSTP.bs....

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Second part of XP Professional setup from hd 0 part 1" /FASTDETECT

since you are installing in partition 1 and you will be using it.

This line, with partition 1, was present in boot.ini in post #3, you had to correct only disk(1) to disk(0). Where did it disappear? :ph34r:

BTW- where do you get all thise boot.ini's from? You said you used WinSetupFromUSB, boot.ini posted is from usb_prepare.cmd or usb_multiboot.cmd, with wrong disk () values... How this mess is happening?

@Wimb- there are no issues with drive letters, just wrong disk() values, which should be 0.
