That's easy

 

I'm glad that you agree to add this functionality. I'm sure it will be another plus of your program, and will be appreciated by users!

When we can wait for a new version? And do you need help with testing?

"When can we wait"? I guess you can start waiting right now :-)

 

Just kidding, I think you should re-read JFX's last reply, I think you might have misunderstood the "That's easy" part...

JFX, just had to share this:

Just finished installing the new Windows 10 preview (14251 build), using WinNTSetup of course. Install went fine, even with all my usual tweak etc. All fully unattended, etc.

 

I just find it so funny that WinNTSetup is installing this without a single problem, when even Microsoft's "standard" setup is refusing/ giving setup errors, etc. At least that's what I'm reading on all the forums.

I must admit I usually only test new Previews (quickly) to make sure my normal setup and PostInstall still works fine (just to check if there are no unpleasant MS surprises or "features"), but I think this is another fine example of the power of WinNTSetup.

WinNTSetup is the best!!! :thumbup

Yes, I understand that it's not easy. Even with a proven bat files.
But I hope, JFX yet agree. For me it's very, very important!
And I'm ready to give him any support.

I think WinNT has more that enough options in it as is. I don't always update when options get added if I can manage without them. The more you add, the more work it is for the developer and the more complicated it gets to maintain. Bite the bullet and use your three screw drivers.

Yes I understand.
But within 5 years the program has received a lot of functions and achieved excellent results.
And the release of new versions shows that the author is interested in its further development and enhancement.
I believe that it is true, so my hopes are associated with JFX. The last word for him.

Has anyone managed to install XP using WinNTSetup? Whenever I try it, on the first boot it says

Cannot find the file C:\Windows\System32\Winload.exe

0xc000000f

 

So, WinNTSetup install it correctly but I do not know what the error means. The file is there and I've tried vanilla XP and also XP with injected sata drivers.

Any tips?

Yes, I use it for XP all the time. JFX even was so kind to include special modifications for it to work with OnePiece-pack created iso's. I created a new iso last tuesday, with the latest FinalXP pack from OnePiece, and the latest POS updates.

 

I don't remember exactly if I saw your error codes before, but are you sure you included both text-mode and windows SATA drivers in your source?

Also, have you installed this on a multiboot setup? Did you let WinNTSetup change the boot sector?

I've used DriverPacks Base tool with the following settings:

Iijected DP_MassStorage_wnt5_x86-32_1209.7z using Method 2, GUIRunOnce

 

Isn't that enough?

The error is an indicator that you try to boot XP in a wrong way, since winload.exe is not a file of XP.
XP is booting through ntldr and boot.ini file,
whereas later Windows versions 7/8/10 are booting through bootmgr menu and using file winload.exe

If you try to boot with bootmgr menu, then you can add Grub4dos boot option to your menu by using UEFI_MULTI.exe
Don't Add XP to Bootmgr Menu, since this will add the real ntldr to your boot drive,
whereas you want to find ntldr (= renamed setupldr.bin) for install of XP.
After booting in BIOS-mode first select Grub4dos ,
and then in Grub4dos menu select find and load NTLDR of Windows NT/2K/XPv

http://reboot.pro/to...ve/#entry168079

What is exactly your present boot configuration ?
What is your boot drive and what is your system drive ?
Where is file ntldr needed for booting XP ?

What is the partitioning (MBR needed for XP or GPT) of your drives ?
Are you booting in BIOS-mode (needed) or in UEFI-mode (which does not work for XP) ?
In case of booting from USB then USB 2.0 is required, since USB 3.0 will not work for XP.
Give screenshot as shown of windows disk management.
