WinXP SP3 USB install fails on second phase

6 posts in this topic

Hello

I followed this tutorial for making a WinXP USB install.

I tried installing it on this very old Athlon 2000+ machine. The first phase goes well i format and copy the new files then it restarts and boots from the stick again. I try starting the second phase but it just roles some text and comes back to the Windows installation selection screen.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Can i do this from the command line?

Can you figure out what the text is?

and comes back to the Windows installation selection screen.

What happens if you start the second part again, without going through the first part? Just select again the second part.

Can i do this from the command line?
What do you mean?

1 First several lines appear saying something about NTFS then all that goes away and says at the top Start cmain()....

2 Yes ...the same happens goes back to the windows selection screen

3 Start the second phase from the command line

Lets try.

Boot from USB again. Press "c" key when the menus appear. This will get you in grub4dos command prompt.

Then type:


map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
map --hook
find --set-root --devices=h /ntldr
chainloader /ntldr
boot

What does it return after "find --set-root --devices=h /ntldr"?

Does the GUI mode start after "boot"?

Another way- just boot from the internal disk after Text mode/First part. What happens then?

How many internal disks do you have attached?
