So, jaclaz, there are the Win XP SP 1.0a czech files LAYOUT.INF and TXTSETUP.SIF.

Both with their original state and my modified state.

What I did wrong? I just cleaned out the files, removing empty lines and stuff and removed many of the ".Load" files to get the install rid of many of the unwanted files. Is this that big crime, so the install should crash, as it does?

Which exact kind of "crash" do you get?

Can you describe what actually happens?

At first sight you are editing the file in a "semi-random" way :w00t:, in the sense that you are removing just an occurrence of *something* without thoroughly checking the whole file for other occurrences of the "same" *something* (IF and how this will affect the result cannot say)

Still at first sight, removing ksecdd.sys may be not a smart idea. :unsure:

I guess you would find interesting info and useful tools here /which you may want to re-read):

ninf is not that bad :), and AFAICR once the modified setupapi.dll issue has been finally solved:

there is no particular difference between SP1.0a and later servicepacks (or original "Gold" release)

I tried to describe it as well, as I can there:

http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/162523-winxp-sp10a-czech-setupapidll-hack/

...but if the ksecdd.sys is really required (it was not in W2k file, so I removed it) as part of the core, then it might explain all the issues I having. Hence new test must be done with the ksecdd.sys back in the Filesystems.Load section of TXTSETUP.SIF.

So, back to testing - thanks for the first sight! Now I removed also the "_x" to prevent checking the files, so we see, if the install can work with modified files - that is the goal.

NO, that was BEFORE you managed to get the SETUPAPI.DLL "hacked".

It is assumed that once you had it hacked you already tried to install with a NON modified TXTSETUP.SIF and that you were successful AND that you already tried to install with only a single, trivial, non-show-stopper edit of TXTSETUP.SIF and that you were successful.

This would excludde that ti s anything wrong in the patch.

Now you should have different symptoms or a different "crash" (namely a BSOD of some kind, most probably) than:

When installing, it keep getting stuck on the message that the Win install file is wrong and it's signature is missing. It give this code of error: 800b0100 ...

When reporting a problem, do always follow the standard litany:

http://homepage.ntlworld.com./jonathan.deboynepollard/FGA/problem-report-standard-litany.html

it will be easier for everyone :). (and no, "install crashes" is NOT a description - or an accurate enough one - of what happens and that you see, remember how we cannot see what is happening on your PC and we have to base any suggestion on your descriptions of what happens).
