" The file winntbbu.dll wasn't copied correctly. The file setup placed on your harddrive isn't a valid Windows XP image. If you are installing from CD, there may be a problem with the XP CD. "

Actually i have changed the bootup image using the file winntbbu.dll. after that i did makecab winntbbu.dll and copied the cab file to 1386 folder and deleted the

i modifype the winntbbu.dll

then i get winntbbu.dl_

i think your getting modifype confused with makecab

if u modifype your file, the filename/extension doesnt change, ONLY the CRC header which u cannot see without a resource hacking utility

u need to download modifype.exe & type

modifype.exe winntbbu.dll -c

makecab winntbbu.dll

I also got one question about this. I used modifype -c on winntbbu.dll and after that I cabed it down into winntbbu.dl_. Then I replaced the original files in the i386 with these, replacing both winntbbu.dll and winntbbu.dl_. When the setup copies the winntbbu.dll I get the same error as suraj. Anyone know what I should do?

Edit: Nevermind, I somehow managed to solve it. I just used the -c first and afterwards cabed it down and this time it worked :blink: Anyway, thx

Regards,

make sure that you modifype -c the winntbbu.dll

When i use modifype it always says program is too big to fit in memory. i have 128mb ram and 40gb hard disk. plz provide solution very soon.

Im sorry if this is a real dumb question and ive read several post and the guide but still ament 100% sure. The original logon file in my Xp sp2 cd is WINNTBBU.DLL and I downloaded a billboard screen off here which is called WINNTBBU.DL_ what should be my next step? I was under the understanding that WINNTBBU.DL_ is the completed file name and ready for use?

Fine then ignore me :whistle:

Hi..

WINNTBBU.DL_ is a compressed version of the file WINNTBBU.DLL.

If you want to modify it, you have to expand it using the command EXPAND.

It should be enough to have either the compressed or expanded version in your I386 folder for it to work.

1- edit winntbbu.dll then save.

2- modifype it.

3- makecab it. (to save space on your CD)

Delete any of winntbbu.dll or winntbbu.dl_ from your XPCD before putting your new cabbed one there.

At the time of Windows Setup, if both files are there, Setup will use the uncabbed one and will ignore the cabbed one!

THANKS, it's working now, but still have a small problem.

When I run the setup, only 4 lines, or sometimes 4 lines and a half, of text is shown in the main window.

Not the complete text. Do you have any ideas?

Anyway I made a big step forwards.

Thanks again

Did you run a real setup, or just the setup.exe, or use WINNTBBU Editor?
