1,535 posts in this topic

Thank for your reply, I check your reply every day because I want to solve this problem

Of couse I made WinXP include SATA driver by nlite (I used this WinXP setup.iso to install for many computer successful)

I did as you said and saw fail: "A disk read error occurred , Please press ctrl+alt+del to restart" ( alway unsuccessful with other computer with differrence hardware)

I think this cause by bootsector fail (I choose "update with bootice") ( I tried with Norton Ghost and Acronis True Image)

I made 7 days with many cases but not successful

Ah, thanks think i understand now.

Winntsetup creates following boot order:

MBR --> PBR --> NTLDR --> Boot.ini --> BOOTSECT.DAT --> $LDR$

of course BOOTSECT.DAT will give an error on different hardware.

What you can do before capture:

- delete NTLDR and boot.ini

- rename $LDR$ to NTLDR

this should hopefully solve your problem.

@JFX

- GUI upscale on higher Windows DPI settings

Very nice. I wish more developers would take this into consideration when developing an application. I often use apps that don't have a clue about being DPI conform. Most of the time text gets truncated or there is overlap. It seems testing is only done using normal 96 DPI. Windows also offers 120 DPI. I don't know if the developers are too lazy to bother or if they don't know how to code it.

What language do you use for codng WinNTsetup and is there a specific function for making the app compatible with different DPI settings?

Thanks, will try out the new version tomorrow on an XP build.

Hi click-click,

WinNTSetup, is written mainly in Autoit3. A few months ago, i noticed that it looks awful on Windows with a higher DPI setting.

After searching i found a topic: fontgui-resizing.

So I changed every GUI coordinates/width,high using a DPI factor. Very Nice if one already have over 150 GUIelements :ph34r:

Also added dpiAware entry to the application mainfest.

But, how do I re-enable System Restore again? I've tried every possible solution I could find on net, even SFC failed.

What the hell does WinNTSetup's tweak do and how can I undo it? :blink:

I had WinNTSetup 1.5 then, there was no red skull mark next to Disable System Restore, so I thought it just does something in registry...

assume you mean a xp install?

It does actually nothing special, only disable the sr service

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\sr]
"Start"=dword:00000004

enter this in command prompt:

sc config sr start= demand && sc start sr

Should active System Restore again.

****! Now that finally fixed it! There was nothing about that in Google...

I'll write that down in case I will ever encounter this again.

Thanks a lot!

hello my dear friend JFX ,

i have not yet tested your tool , for direct install on usb (for win7) , but in case it is interesting for you , coz i dont know what set of reg entries / fixes you are using currently for using win7 directly from usb ,

here are the two reg entries , in win7 , which considers as working OK for booting win7 from USB.

NOT tested by me, reference thread is here. and reportedly , they are working OK.

http://bbs.wuyou.com/viewthread.php?tid=201023&extra=page%3D1

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control]

"BootDriverFlags"=dword:00000004

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\PnP]

"PollBootPartitionTimeout"=dword:00003a98

you can use google translate .

Regards,

Maanu from Pakistan

hallo my dear friend,

Thanks for that thread. And yes with version 2.1 these both entries are set:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet???\Control]

"BootDriverFlags"=dword:00000006

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet???\Control\PnP]

"PollBootPartitionTimeout"=dword:00007530

also if you integrate NEC USB3 driver, they get BootFlags assigned.

@JFX, very nice tool. One of the annoying limitations of NT 6 setup is you can't install an x64 version from a 32-bit version of Windows. Can you make it a single EXE that can install for example, 64-bit Windows 7 from 32-bit Windows XP?

Hi xpclient,

not sure I understand you right? WinNTSetup2_x86.exe is a standalone exe,

that can install from any 32 bit system (at least XP SP1 and higher) all Windows version from Win2000 up to Windows 8 Pre x64.

It support installing 64Bit OS form 32 Bit Windows.

You mean by starting WinNTSetup2_x86.exe from 32-bit Windows, I can install 64-bit Windows 7??? (Not by starting WinNTSetup2_64.exe)? Then that is what I wanted. Thanks. :D

Yes that's right, WinNTSetup2_x86.exe is all you need. :)

WinNTSetup2_x64.exe is thought to run under a 64Bit Winpe, which does not support 32 Bit applications.

like:

- Erd Commander x64

- Recovery Console of Windows 7x64

- Windows 7 x64 Setup DVD
