Hello everyone, I have registered because I got into trouble while trying to put Win XP on Acer Aspire One D257...
*torrented winxp*
First, i did the uiso thing, it wrote on my usb

i put it in , enter BIOS with F2, set boot from usb, then i get the message :

INF file txtsetup.sif is corrupt or missing, status 18.

Setup cannot continue. Press any key to exit.




I search for alternate solutions and end up with WinSetupFromUsb 023, i write on usb again

boots good, enters setup, i click enter on first part of setup...

then it DOESN'T show that i can install on HDD (which is detected in bios, linux works on it, 500gig thing) and only shows the USB (7k + MB)
i tried to install it there for the kicks and lols and i got the message that drive U: is corrupted whatever i do
it even offered me to make it a NTFS (i think it's FAT32 atm, my usb ...)


Help me, PLEASE :o
I'd rather take help here and potentially donate money here when we get paypal, rather than drag this netbook to the service to some guy who'll do it for more money in like 30min. :S

1) I strongly advice you to use the latest 1.0 beta8
2) About the missing hard disk- read this post, or search a bit in this subforum, question has been answered numerous times:
http://www.msfn.org/...ost__p__1016861
http://www.msfn.org/...post__p__884370
3) About the last message you are getting- which part of it is not understandable?
For USB boot you start from USB, right?
XP Setup has two parts (Text mode and GUI mode), with restart between them. The message is telling you to boot from USB twice, for each part of Setup. In other words, when the first part is completed, the text mode part, you have to make sure computer boots from USB again, for the second part. Many BIOSes would boot by default from the internal disk if not told otherwise and you will get an error.
1.0 versions do not have this requirement, hence the first advice to use 1.0 beta8, besides all the other improvements.

Install Windows from USB, boot Linux, multiboot and a lot more with WinSetupFromUSB

3) is ok, i understood it, it's been long time since i installed winxp... :(



edit:

please believe that i am currently feeling like a stupid caveman, tired as hell, trying to make this work, it's not for me, it's for a dear person.
i need some step-by-step, everything seems like chinese alphabet here :(


stupid me found the beta 8 . . .







edit2

Did you figure it out?

when i say "solved" and post pics of windows desktop it is solved
so no, i didn't figure it out... i told you i need instructions :\
this is a very frustrating experience for me :'(
realize that I am stupid for this, I have never done it before, I do not know what to do anymore
and errors are not an option, it is NOT my netbook and I do not want to make a major screw-up


http://www.nliteos.com/download.html
nLite
Deployment Tool for the Bootable Unattended Windows ISO
(Remove components, integrate hotfixes, drivers and themes. Tweaks, patches...)


v1.4.9.1 | Installer | 2.54 MB

downloaded this





1) Integrate in your source the appropriate mass storage (SATA/AHCI) driver, apparently Intel one, using nLite for example, then recreate the USB disk.
2) Integrate in your source BTS mass storage driver pack and recreate the USB disk:
http://driverpacks.n...uide-windows-xp
Make sure "DriverPack Mass Storage text mode" is checked.
3) In BIOS switch SATA/AHCI mode to IDE/compatible if there is such option.


done the 3) part
1) ok, i see that i should click the F6 thing in order to install those drivers prior to the installation
can you explain which ones should i put and where?
2) still need to dig this



NEW EDIT

tried to install

i now got the

wow

oh god

i think i won here

i'll take pics and try to install, hang on

edit next:

but fail
http://i.imgur.com/XPuPB.jpg

i think i'll have to wipe everything?

edit next:

i wiped E V E R Y T H I N G
because linux works in mysterious ways
and windows must work as NTFS

so i made 1 partition of 50GB
and pc decided to make everything else as D:\ , i wanted to make some separations but nvm, i do not want to complicate.
so atm i am formatting the C:\ of 50gig to NTFS, took pic for someone who will read this in few years lol

i think i got it now... i'll edit this post further.

thanks



NEW EDIT:

installation part 1 done (copying files on hdd)
then i went to part 2

i now have the GUI on

Asking for help on a WAREZ release is a good recipe to get banned in no time.

Hello everyone, I have registered because I got into trouble while trying to put Win XP on Acer Aspire One D257...
*torrented winxp*

See Rules of this board:
http://www.msfn.org/...tion=boardrules


JFYI nliting a non-original source is a perfect recipe for disaster (as most WAREZ would have been already modified - possibly through the use of the same nlite)

I am not banning you (for the moment) but this thread is going to an end right now.
