I have created XP-ISO files from various different sources.

In all cases I get the error message " GlobalRoot\Device\CDROMON\I386"  (cannot be loaded) when I boot from the DVD created.

 

How do I have to configure nlite to avoid this ?

Yes, it even happend with a Full Legal Win XP Professional, containing Service Pack 2, Version 2002

 

Goggle shows a great number similar complaints., but no real solution.

Hmmm. :unsure:

 

BEFORE, you should have got:

 

"Files Needed"
The file 'Asms' on Windows XP Professional CD-ROM is needed. Type the path where the file is located, and then click OK.

Let me doubt that it is connected with nlite, that kind of problem is seemingly much more "generic".

 

Though it can have several causes, it is often caused by the "tag" files missing (or misplaced):

 and/or an edited (incorrectly) path in TXTSETUP.SIF and/or LAYOUT.INF:

http://www.msfn.org/...something-else/

http://www.msfn.org/...tinf-reference/

http://www.msfn.org/...youtinf-needed/

http://www.msfn.org/...nf/#entry188809

 

If you are making a "large" DVD, this can be another cause:

Yes, I get a window to put in the path (GlobalRoot\Device\CDROMO\I386)

But when I put in the path to the DVD nothing happens.

 

At that time the driver to the DVD does not seem to work yet.

WHICH path do you input in that window? 

 

You should be EXACTLY in this situation:

http://jonatan.nilss.../?p=106&lang=en

 

I.e. by uninstalling and re-installing the CD/DVD driver (if needed) then input D:\I386 (or E; or whatever drive letter the CD/DVD has) you should get to the next file.

I cannot remember if now the D:\I386 that was typed will be in the "drop down list" in the dialog, but you can use copy/paste anyway.

You will need to input that some 20 to 30 times (again if I recall correctly).

Obviously this is just a workaround, and the actual cause needs to be found (for next install).

The link you gave me does not really give a solution.

 

When i try to open regedit when the error message appears I am told it is not found.

 

Obviously there is no simple way and simple description to get around the problem.

I dont really want to spend many days trying this and that in vain.

So I really have to forgett nlite and better use the WinFiuture XP-ISO Builder

In order to find a solution, you need to find the cause.

If you are happy thinking that it is nlite, and that the solution is to not use nlite, that's good (wrong, but perfectly OK).

If your CD is a legit WinXP professional CD, perhaps you should check the directory structure inside ASMS folder.

 

This error happened to me before. So I might be able to help you track your problem:

1. Make sure you don't burn your disc with 8.3 filenames, which will break many things.

Find this directory in your CD, it should exist: (note the word "NETWORKING", if you get a directory named "NETWORKI" then you have the problem.)

I386\ASMS\52\POLICY\MSFT\WINDOWS\NETWORKING\DXMRTP\

2. The Windows setup does complain about additional files in the ASMS directory. Search for all files in it, and the files should be in one of these extensions:

.CAT .DLL .MAN .CA_ .DL_ .MA_

If you found a file not in these extensions, then you have the problem.

 

Hope this helps.

Somehow I managed to get around the problem, but I will try your advice.
