HFSLIP, The 2K/XP/2K3 slipstreamer

411 posts in this topic

It's been a long time I used Nero; I forgot how it handles bootable CDs. I use CDIMAGE.EXE through a seperate batch file to make an ISO (the .BIN boot file is there too) and then burn the ISO with Sonic RecordNow DX 4.61. But I think any burning utility should be capable of handling ISOs... :)

HFSLIP uses the /D switch on the XCOPY command which only overwrites files if the ones in the source location are newer. The file dates are checked, not the version numbers.

No issues to post. Just want to say that, so far, HFSLIP does good for my need and for what I include in my unattended cd.. Thanks so much!

How come the version of HFSLIP posted on FDV's site (60425) is newer than what's mentioned here (60422)?

Where did that come from?!

:w00t:

And has anything been changed since last test release ?

Btw, I think a new "test release" post should be used, the current one is 40-pages long. :o

Not really. Aside from the removal of USP5 parts, TommyP added in a change to an obscure section of HFSLIP.

I have awesome timing. I find the solution to all your problems a mere hour after you release a new final. :lol:

If you're referring to USP5, then there's still one more thing we didn't cover. See the executable inside the SVCPACK folder?

Strange... I could've sworn it was March 28, but now I see there was no "final" released on that day. I set it to March 31... :rolleyes:

I have used the lasted version of HFSlip and it looks as though some updates are not being slipstreamed.

Have attached required files

install.zip

You are obviously not using the hotfix lists on the HFSLIP forum, but I suggest you wait a day or so until I update mine for the new hotfixes that were released today (yesterday).

@whakamaru: The lists that TC is referring to are in the stickied posts and TC's sig. Use those if you can't wait for this month's patches to be ironed out. If you can wait a bit, you should do so.

@whakamaru: Another thing - the updates listed in that dialog you captured as updates*.JPG are the ones that were just released. Yes, please use Tomcat's updated list.

By the way, if those were the only updates that Windows Update requested, then you are all set. However, I did notice that you have some hotfixes that are obsolete/unnecessary (again, refer to TC's list).

If you plan to slipstream those new hotfixes, make sure you use the latest test release from this thread. Many, if not all, of those are not properly supported by the latest final release.

One final note: Move your dotnet2.exe file (I'm assuming this is RyanVM's installer, am I right?) to HF. .NET 2.0 normally cannot be installed from SVCPACK, the folder where HFSLIP places those files you put in HFSVCPACK. A special registry hack is needed, and HFSLIP will make Windows perform this change if you place the installer in HF. Be sure to use the latest test release for this functionality.

:) Hope everything helps.

Thanks for the help. I have successfully slipstreamed all the hotfixes for XP SP2 even the newer ones. I used the "Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer 2.0" to analyse the system and it has reported that all the hotfixes have been installed. This was all stipstreamed with version hfslip_60528.

Great program. Now that is required is to get rid of that WGATray.exe. Would it be possible to integrate this into the next version. I have read on several web sites that what is required is to rename wgatray.exe, winlogon.dll.

Thanks again for the help

If you don't want the WGATray, then don't slipstream it.

I doubt Tomcat would want to integrate a fix for turning off WGA Notifications (KB905474), but I could be wrong as we had a bit of a similar discussion about a week or so ago.

we can integrate hotfixes with nlite, what does this tool offer more?

IMHO this tool is better. I don't know how much time nuhi spends after each Patch Tuesday and if he can test as many platforms as HFSlip users do.

And this is open-source. :D

i second that Camarade Tux! :)

further test releases are done almost on daily basis to address real-time issues ...

nLite would be a very good material though for slimming down the source as ...

HFCLEANUP. The alternative SOURCESS reducer.

This section is UNSUPPORTED and YOUR MILEAGE MAY VARY using this. It is geared for people who want to reduce their own SOURCESS. It’s also geared for people who like crafting their own reduction files. Perhaps someone will craft additional reduction files and post them for us all to use.

DO NOT COMPLAIN IF YOUR APPLICATIONS DO NOT WORK!!!!

& from the open source code of HFSLIP :)
ECHO * Reduce your source, an NLITE alternative (Do it at your own risk)

Time will be getting limited to me very soon and as such don't expect major changes. If however, there are improvements to be made to the script, I can edit it as required. I accept inputs from others for script "plug ins". However, please test what you create, and if it works, submit it and I'll incorporate it.
you're not going anywhere TC, are you? :no:

btw, the link (http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=74019) for

* Optionally automate HFSLIP.
