c_20127.nls error after sysprep.

85 posts in this topic

When I install from an Nlite created xp pro w/ sp2 cd and later run sysprep on that install, on first boot I get an error related to the c_20127.nls file not being found, if I browse to the system 32 directory the file is there and the install conitnues with a few more similar errors, all with files on the local machine properly, and the minisetup completes normally. This error does not occour on an install made with a normal slipstreamed xp2 CD.

Any help would be appretiated.

Thanks

Mike

I never tried sysprep so it would speed things up if you explain to me how to reproduce the problem in short.

Thanks

Well I slipstreamed sp2 in with XP and all the hotfixes using nlite, took out movie maker and a few other things. Then used that CD to load a laptop with XP at which point I ran sysprep using reseal option.. upon booting back up you get numerous erros .. I have talked to a few people now that have had the same problem..

Hi nuhi, hi all:

sysprep is used for cloning, making a single installation usable on several different computers withput having to mess around with SIDs etc.

Myself I use sysprep in very large evnviroments using the same sysprepped image on laptops and desktops.

This is what you do:

Install Windows XP with everything needed on a desktop (laptops don't work for that), use FAT32 so you can mofify things in the image, Customize everything in the default userprofile, so you make sure that every new user get it. When this is done, create an image. This is helpful if you want a strting point later on, e.g. update software or drivers, hotfixes.

When done start up windows xp open a dos-prompt:

change into your sysprep folder

now:

sysprep -bmsd (creates the mass-storage section)

convert c: /FS:NTFS (say no, and the yes, so it will be converted after the next reboot

sysprep -clean (all drivers, etc will be unloaded)

sysprep -mini -quiet -reseal ( this will kick out the sid's, and force a mini-setup when the maschine is powered up again.

When sysprep is finished, the pc will be shutdown. Now take a new image. This image can now be cloned onto the maschine.

If you power the pc up, it converts the partition, reboots, and then after aminute or two it asks for the files needed.

If you have any questions feel free to contact me.

shortie

P.s.: In oder to use the image on laptops and desktops you must change the computer-type two Advanced configuration and the IDE controller to standard ide.

Hi nuhi! Great work!

You make my life easier! Nlite is the best thing ever happen to me.

But I still have the problem stated above. I added 39 hotfixes directly into nlite. Everything is fine if I don't sysprep my pc to make image for rest of the computers. But after I run sysprep and reboot I have c_20127.nls file missing error. When I press cancel, it went through fine. But it is a big delay for me when I deploy 100 computers coz I have to press cancel for each pc. I used RC1 through RC6 and I selected the compatilibity for windows activation and sysprep check box. Any advice for me please. Many Thanks

Yup I know that sysprep bug is still there on reseal.

All you "need" to do is to point it to the CD or windows subfolders for missing files, they are there, it's just it don't see it...signature issue.

Since sysprep is mainly used in companies and other commercial branches and they never donated me anything I don't care either.

Don't get me wrong, it's not like I'm holding the fix, it is hard, I tried many times and decided it's not worth the hassle...like the dos winnt.exe bug. (winnt32 works ok)

Hi,

I completely understand that! Paying lots of money for usless crap is no problem here, but donations... how how.. Anyway, I still don't use nLite at work since the sysprep problem is still there. If it is fixed, I could send a link to this thread to the boss :P

On the other hand, I don't work at a commercial company, but a university hospital.

nuhi, I saw another article (something about Active Directory) you mentioned the c_20127.nls error would be fixed and we should look for 'sysprep fixed' in the changelog. I noticed it appears in the latest version (07?). My question though:

Do I need to do everything from scratch, or can I just take my existing N-Lite prepped files and run the latest version.

Thanx

Sean

sflesch, from scratch.

And some reported that networked install will still have some issues with sysprep.

I tested the reseal without problem.

You can get around this problem by creating a i386 folder in the sysprep folder and then put the files that are being requested in that folder. You can get the files from the "nlited" windows XP folder or from the CD that you burned.

edenkers, does that means that this problem is still present? Which files did you miss and could you please explain in short how to repeat it?

Unfortunately, I'm still having this (similar) problem with reseal. I just keep getting the errors for missing files. It's starts off with the c_20127.nls which you can find already installed on the harddrive and the rest of the files are to be found in the i386 directory on the WinLite CD.

I made sure I checked the box on the Compatibility box for Windows Activation and Sysprep, but it didn't change anything. Is there some setting that I've chosen that screwed up everything?

Here's a incomplete list of those missing files (I just got tired of listing them by using a floppy):

I'm working on XP SP2 master image thats fits on all PCs possible and i'm having the same issue. I build my image using the last version of nLite, I did removed all unused language files to make the image smaller. Maybe its linked with the issue ? Did you guys removed some language files 2 ?

Also I found on some forums that if you install your OS from a CD the source path in regedit will be D: (CD-Rom letter), but is has to be C: since your making a master image and the XP CD you used early w'ont be loaded to the PC. SO by changing the value to C:, the c_20127.nls file should be found. I'm testing it write now, I'll get back to you.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup]

"SourcePath"="C:\\"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion]

"SystemRoot"="C:\\WINDOWS"

"SourcePath"="C:\\"

"PathName"="C:\\WINDOWS"

Create a folder called I386.

Put the following files in it:

Make sure to remove the hidden attribute on the files.

In the sysprep. inf add the following line to the [unattended] section:

InstallFilesPath=C:\i386

That should fix the error messages after syspreping.

Well I added all of those files you suggested bigfoot18, but now it says its missing agt0407.dll.

What the heck are all these missing files related to?

Why does nlite break sysprep?

Oops forgot to add the msagent files to that directory. I took them out of the list because I thought they were specific to what i was removing.. Guess not.

got to windows\msagent\intl and copy all the dlls from there to the i386 folder.

that should fix your problem.

I dont have a clue why it breaks sysprep, just how to work around it.
