How to integrate hardware Add-ons?
Posted 30 April 2011 - 07:07 AM
I have no problems integrating hardware drivers with "inf". It clearly explains in the Index guide. I have searched and could not find step-by-step integrating Add-ons like Opera, CClean and Add-ons drivers, without “inf” files.
I appreciate greatly if someone willing to help me here. Thank you.

These are the links to the add-ons for
Broadcom 57XX Gigabit Integrated Controller - R116105 http://www.mediafire...DDON_R116105.7z
QuickSet - R165094 http://www.mediafire...DDON_R165094.7z
Add them to the Add-ons section in nLite, just like the other two.

Feedback: Just tested (done several since) nLite Slipstream. I am extremely pleased, except unable to insert DellDriver_ADDON_AD.7z in "drivers" selection task screen, either single or multiple. I finally gave up and continue. While burning, I realized my mistake, I should insert it in "Hotfix, Add-ons and Update" and not "driver". On testing one yellow "?" in system hardware. I guess R138226 Broadcom without the "inf" is missing. I install all drivers without "inf" and System software. Checked again all OK. Found Intel® PRO/Wireless R236916 icon look different from the original, but wireless work perfectly. Maybe it loaded the generic driver??.
I am not a savvy computer geek. I had clean installed Win98SE probably a thousand times. WinXP is new to me. To speed up, skipped "Unattended, Option and tweaks", exception removed search, messenger and three or four more which I have forgotten. I will do another one and any help, and tips or advice will be most welcome. The Reference Guide is too brief and needs more details. On my first nLite attempted I use below URL as guide (found it). It works. With UDC-04.15.11.zip, I updated 27 security patches etc. Thanks everyone..I may come back for more help to trim the fat as I remove...options....tweaks.

edit - I take that back! IE8 is there since it's considered as "critical update" by MS.

R138226.exe is offered as Intel Mobile Chipset on Dell's site. Do you know which chipset you have? Anyway, you can get a much smaller download containing the same files here http://downloadcenter.intel.com/

I would rather not install IE, but kept IE7 as necessity, been using Opera for over 12 years. Checked out Intel’s URL and decided not to change, took me over 6mths to get the wireless running properly. If it’s working good, don’t touch it, right?
I installed/reinstalled R-138226, R11610, R116105, R114200 (hit or missed attempts). There is still a “?” on ECP port. I always deleted secession.ini before attempted the next one. Should I use the last secession to make changes on a fresh copy of WinXP3?
Should I attach the secession file here? BTW, can you remove the secession files I posted earlier, it embarrassing to be reminded of my ignorant? Tried to edit it. Thanks.

I didn't give it to you for wireless, it was for Chipset drivers.
So, open Device Manager, double-click the '?', go to the Details tab and copy the Hardware IDs. It will tell us what is missing, so you can install it.
Yes, it saves a lot of time. If you don't like something, change it and it will be saved in the new Last Session.ini.
Bear in mind that some Dell drivers will not install in a VM, especially if the hardware is not present. That is why I told you I can't test the add-ons I made, since I do not have a Dell PC.

-Installed two drivers without "inf". R90851 - Intel Mobile Chipset and R138226 - Conexant modem Application
-Reinstalled again R236916 - PRO/Wireless 3945ABG. I pick "NETw5x32.inf", instead of "w29n51.inf"? Your advice.
-Reinstalled again R171789 - SIGMATEL. There is audio but no Startup and Turn Off tune. Can live without if, but prefer with it. Attach session file. I did add session but didn't show up??

1. Explorer-Launch folder windows in a separate process - Don't do this, as users have reported bugs with nLite
2. System Restore - Disable it when it's installed, but do not remove it. Out of personal experience, I got a lot of weird errors when I removed it.
Also, if you have Windows-KB89083O-v3.18.cab, then you don't need Windows-KB89083O-v3.17.cab; you can also find newer versions of Unlocker if you search.

2. System Restore - OK
Also, ......you can also find newer versions of Unlocker if you search. Unlocker, prefer older versions. Tried the latest version earlier, not much difference. Most newer "freewares" force you to install "Ask, Yahoo tool bars" and "Bing". Another freewares "Eraser 5.88" is far superior to all versions there after.
You did not give an answer on how to remove or what cause the "Windows XP Professional Build 2600.xpsp_sp3_qfe-101209-1646 (serviced Pack 3)" to be on the lower right-hand corner. Any suggestion?
I think I got the hang of it, a difficult learning curve, but worth the time spent. Thanks you. hope you can advise the lower right corner wording....
