Install XP from a ISO file

136 posts in this topic

Anyway this method can be used with DPMS driver stuff from chenell? What I mean is that the cdob's IMA is mapped to "floppy" but so is the driver if found from DPMS. Would this not cancel one or the other out? I notice that the driver is loaded to (fd1) but on my Asus, the stuff from cdob's IMA will only works from (fd1) so you can't have two txtsetup.oem in the same "floppy" right?

i use RUN batch by a chinese friend Sratif
Thanks for the head up.

Any way to use remap hard disks only?

Use a own firadisk.img, map a ISO, command run to remap drives and continue.

E.g.

map %myISO% (222)
...
command %dir%/run remapHD
root (222)
chainloader /I386/SETUPLDR.BIN

BTW: I'm looking forward to visit Fairy Meadow http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairy_Meadow_Nanga_Parbat

But I doubt this year, hopefully next year.

By the way, cdob, did you say you had a V6?
It's under construction. I've fun with different approaches and different BIOS.

That's simple: integrate firadisk to ISO image.
What I mean is that the cdob's IMA is mapped to "floppy" but so is the driver if found from DPMS.
That's another approach.

XP setup reads driver from both floppy drives. Try IMA at fd0 and dpms at fd1.

But BIOS does matter too. May work at one BIOS and fail at the next.

Two different floppy approach seems to work technically, but not reliable in real world.

Ahead of you on this.

My Asus will work with anything that is mapped to (fd0) except the IMA project. Maps to (fd0) fine but get "can't copy firadisk " and so on error on XP install from the IMA file unless I map to (fd1). Once I map to (fd1)...everything copies fine

What? :)

dpms at fd1.

DPMS loads to (fd1) anyway

It seems a parameter can change the behavior:

Further improvement. Support to specify DPMS.ISO file (the file name must be DPMS.ISO)

2 new parameters

pe for pe, just copy the SYS file

0 | 1 | 2 0 use only (fd0 using the), 1 (fd1), 2, and all use.

I have been using the ISO format with this in my menu.lst

map %USBDrive%/XP/DPMS.ISO (0xff)
map --rehook
(0xff)/dpms.bat

Not sure if this is the proper way but it works so far.

I noticed in the dpms.bat, the ISO is mapped this way

map /DPMS.ISO (0xdf) || map --mem /DPMS.ISO (0xdf)

Not sure what the 0xdf is

There is no need to use DPMS.ISO, DPMS.BAT should be enough.

The point was that DPMS.BAT accepts parameters, e.g.

/DPMS.bat 1

map DPMS floppy to fd1

/DPMS.bat 0

map DPMS floppy to fd0

/DPMS.bat 2

map DPMS floppy to both fd0 and fd1

I've tested the above, with "/DPMS.bat 2" two floppies are created, fd0 blank or with unreadable contents, and fd1 with the drivers. The unreadable contents of fd0 are either a trick yet to be revealed, or a bug, or the parameter is expected to go along WINPE one.

There is also a switch WINPE or winpe, put first if present, which causes only driver files to be copied to the floppy.

Not sure what the 0xdf is
Similar to 0xff, BIOS CD number- 0xff=255 decimal, 0xdf = 223. 0xdf must have been picked as likely to be available one, as 0xff or hd32 are typically used.

I was using the extracted version but nod32 sometimes will delete everything in the DPMS folder except chkpci and fat (weird I know)

So I started using the ISO unextracted to prevent this.

Hello everyone,

I use XP_INST v06. I tried the following methods of booting Windows XP ISO to install it to hard drive (I use MSDN original image). However, they all failed. The 1st one ended in BSOD 0x7B even before drive selection screen, and others prompted to insert diskette into drive A: after I pressed F6. If I load ISO to RAM it seems to pass this obstacle, but it takes too long. I'd like to leave ISO on disk rather than load it to RAM. Is it possible to alter these methods somehow to achieve the result? My hardware is Sony VAIO VPCF13S8R.

I am not sure to get it. :unsure:

This thread is about "Install XP from a RAM loaded ISO image".

There is another one:

Install XP from a ISO file.

Use a original ISO file. Or use a custom version, e.g. integrate mass storage drivers.

No RAM disk used.

Usefull at low RAM machines and slow USB BIOS speed.

P.s.: last post and the present one were originally posted on this other thread:

Toshiba satellite laptop i3

Win 7 Home Premium 32 bit

 

Hi!  I tried to read some sense into pages 1 & 2 of this thread but I'm afraid it is way above my head, so I stopped reading....   I have what I think/hope should be a simple request. 

 

Without having a clue what I was doing, I used nLite to slipstream SP3 + ?latest SATA drivers onto drive D:\WinXP SATA folder as an ISO file.  I want to dual boot XP with Win 7, so that I can use some old XP programs occasionally.

 

My Question:  What the heck do I have to do next?

 

by the way, when I earlier tried to install XP onto the Win 7 machine, I got the hung screen with STOP  0X0000007B message.

 

Hope you can help (in words of one syllable, or less....)

 

EdKerm

 

PS  If it isn't simple, why isn't it?

I want to dual boot XP with Win 7, so that I can use some old XP programs occasionally.

Use annother approach: from running Windows 7 use WinNTSetup. http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/149612-winntsetup-v372-375-beta-1/

 

If it isn't simple, why isn't it?

It's causes some issues adding a older OS to a existing machines (XP in addition to Windows 7).

Offer a free partition. And restore/create the dual boot configuration.

Start a new thread, if this is unclear.
