hi sirs!
i think i am getting close ... so far i have ended up with some successful builds (with different combos) & a quite few otherwise ... :)

pls know that i'm very thankful for all the support you guys have been providing ... when i'm out of the woods finally, i'll be posting for sure some other headaches for y'all ;)

i still have to create about a couple more builds to indeed validate what was/were causing my issues ... i would not want to conclude yet though withour being able to attach the error reports for you guys to comment on ... further, i would brun the ISOs 1st & install it on a PC instead of VMs ... i'll post these over the weekend though (as i've got an outta town commitment :))

Do you have an error report in the WINDOWS folder that contains more information? There should be several setup*.log and setup*.txt files there.

as for this, sadly i couldn't get the said txt files as the installations don't finish at all :(

hi sirs!

does this mean anything ... inside the Add or Remove Program, it shows HFSLIP Total Slipstream? :w00t: yahoo!

i am happy to say that i have already successfully built ISOs that are working in VMs or in real PCs ...
please find the attachments handy & kindly validate if my problem lies with the sfc_files.dll in the FIX folder ...

as per the various ERROR_REPORTs (i renamed it though for this purpose), when the said file was present in the FIX folder i always end up with aborted installations ...

please know too that among the many attempts, i likewise tried integrating all those that are not official & were handled by HFSLIP quite well (although some are not actually visible &/or usable when already in OS) :}

btw, dotnetfx 2 (even the 1 i downloaded from: http://www.msfn.org/...211#entry411281 ) didn't integrate successfully as some apps still look for an installation of dotnetfx 2 ... apart from it not being present in Add or Remove Programs, this is what i see in the event viewer when i verify:

Product: Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 -- Error 1406.Could not write value DW0200 to key \Software\Microsoft\PCHealth\ErrorReporting\DW\Installed. System error . Verify that you have sufficient access to that key, or contact your support personnel.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft....link/events.asp.

further, during the unattended install, despite specifying that time zone = 225, it doesn't take it & always shows the default value :(

i remember seeing too on my desktop after successful installation 2 non-labeled folders which cannot be opened ... & the only 3 options i have when right clicking on these are: cut, create shortcut, & delete ... opting to delete these shows the pop-up:

Attached File  delete.jpg   10.39KB   62 downloads

what could these be?

now that i am out of the woods, may i ask how do i remove the cat files via HFSLIP? ;)

lastly sirs, 1 quick question ... is HFSLIP built for official hotfixes only? if so i truly respect that ... however let me just share that some errors &/or warnings found in the event viewer points to unofficial releases as resolutions ... if you like i have about 9 or 10 of those that i requested from MS via calls i made to them ... i'll be happy to upload these for your perusal ... but no biggie if not interested :whistle:

thanks a lot y'all for the guidance!

The purpose of the FIX folder is to replace any existing files that are in the installation source. IIRC, sfc_files.dl_ is a non-existing file to begin with. The real filname is sfcfiles.dl_. The *main* purpose of HFSLIP, as stated on FDV's site is to slipstream critical hotfixes. Application Add Ons could work, only if the author of the AAO's thoroughly test them before posting. As some HFSLIP users found out, some authors tested and some didn't.

How do you specify your time zone? A winnt.sif file? Can you post the code for your winnt.sif for that section only? We don't need to see the entire file.

As far as your extra icons/folders on your desktop goes, this is strange. I hate to sound like a hardnose, but you can test with the tried and true hotfixes to get a grasp at HFSLIP before adding in all the extras? We asked this numerous times already. Apparantly, you are still using some crazy hotfixes that don't slipstream correctly. If the slipstream isn't correct, then your OS could be hosed and the proper registry entries aren't made.

Kiki, see my post in the Test releases topic.

btw, dotnetfx 2 (even the 1 i downloaded from: http://www.msfn.org/...211#entry411281 ) didn't integrate successfully as some apps still look for an installation of dotnetfx 2 ... apart from it not being present in Add or Remove Programs, this is what i see in the event viewer when i verify:

Product: Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 -- Error 1406.Could not write value DW0200 to key \Software\Microsoft\PCHealth\ErrorReporting\DW\Installed. System error . Verify that you have sufficient access to that key, or contact your support personnel.

IIRC, the .NET Framework 2.0 cannot be installed via SVCPACK or GUIRunOnce. However, I do believe someone said that Zxian's installer, which you downloaded, should work. I think Tomcat should know more. (BTW, .NET 2.0 is completely different from .NET 1.1)

As far as I can see, the program files for .NET 2.0 are being installed with Zxian's installer, but I don't have/know about any applications that require .NET 2.0 so I can't verify if the whole program is being installed properly. I'm not into gaming....

Regarding your time zone setting in Winnt.sif...
It ONLY works if the install is FULL UNATTEND that is just the way the lil' devil works.
I once tried setting the value in the HIVE defaults - but even that didn't work.
I had an idea that I might try using a program like resource hacker to search thru the various DLL,s and EXE's might find the value that M$ places during install - but never did the 'leg work'.
Just seemed like it was more effort than changing the zone after install.

Just a quick tidbit:

Microsoft released two hotfixes to change the time zone on many computers at once to GMT-05:00 and GMT-06:00.

However, those can only be obtained directly from Microsoft (i.e. they cannot be downloaded).

@tommyp,

Are you talking about the time zone hotfixes? Apparently Microsoft thought some companies might need to mass change time zones on computers, I guess.

hi!
thanks for all the comments!

@tommyp
i did create many successful builds already (& these included strictly adhering to those outlined in HFSLIP) ... & i know it works ... i'm merely trying to validate if my hunches are correct ...
i know that sfc_files.dll is supposed to come out as sort of blank file ... but then again, in all those builds (as shown by the zipped logs) --- the most common for the successful ones are those without it ...

btw, these are my entries in the winnt.sif
[GuiUnattended]
EncryptedAdminPassword=NO
OEMSkipRegional=1
OEMSkipWelcome=1
TimeZone=225

as for those 2 blank folders, i suppose these were from some addons ... i caouldn't be too sure though ...

@Electrician
i concur with that the setting of time zone working in full unattended mode because when i did that, it worked ... but for the other modes, it wouldn't even if setting it in the winnt.sif (for setup from cd) ... thanks!

@Tomcat76 & Super Magician
the applications that require 2.0 so are basically the addons (time zone, xpize) ... i just installed it after the OS installation ... it couldn't be slipstreamed/integrated ... :)

thanks y'all! :)

Hey guys its been forever since Ive been around. Things look great. I decided to do another disk so may as well get the latest stuff - so here I am.

I noticed in STEP 6 for xp:
Create a boot sector file from your Windows CD.
You need to extract a copy of your CD's boot sector using Bart's boot image extractor. (Or use Google, you'll find it easily). Put BBIE.EXE in HFTOOLS and make sure your Windows CD is in the drive. HFSLIP will extract a bootsector automatically. If, for whatever reason, you don't have a Windows CD on hand but you do have a boot sector file, rename it to boot.bin and put it in HFTOOLS.

I did it the manual way before so I thought this was really great. I had my XPcd in the cd drive when I ran HFSLIP but I don't see the boot image. Is it supposed to be in HFTOOLS? or is it supposed to be hidden? If its supposed to be hidden then how do I get nero to find it to make a bootable cd?

It should appear in HFTOOLS. Can you attach a copy of your HFSLIP.LOG file, or tell me the exact files in your HFTOOLS folder?

That is odd. And you have a genuine disc from Microsoft?

Try the following. Download the attached script and place it in your HFSLIP working directory (i.e. D:\HFSLIP\). Run it with the XP CD in your drive and report what you see after it runs.

P.S. You no longer need MSICabExtract in HFTOOLS. TommyP/Tomcat removed the need for that awhile ago.

Once you put the boot.bin in the hftools directory, type in MAKEISO instead of "I have read...." as a shortcut to make your iso. Cheers!

I ran the getboot.cmd file and it put BOOT.BIN in the HFTOOLS folder. The file I extacted manually, way back when, with Bart's via the cmd promp is called image1.bin ?

Anyway, I re-ran HFSLIP with just bbie.exe in HFTOOLS and my XPcd in the drive and still no boot image winds up in HFTOOLS after HFSLIP does its thing :(
(also moved getboot out of HFSLIP folder)

here's the log files attached

Once you put the boot.bin in the hftools directory, type in MAKEISO instead of "I have read...." as a shortcut to make your iso. Cheers!


T P was this to me? If so please elaborate. "Type in..." where? into what?

You need to have either mkisofs.exe or cdimage.exe in the HFTOOLS folder. You didn't mention having it. Since March 27/28, HFSLIP no longer fetches the boot image if neither mkisofs.exe nor cdimage.exe are detected. There's also no point in getting the boot image if it won't be used by HFSLIP.

Something else. I see you got LegitCheckControl.dll in the FIX folder. Three comments:

1) It should be compressed with MAKECAB so the extension is ".dl_". HFSLIP only *copies* the files from FIX into SOURCESS\I386; it doesn't compress them.

2) In the current final version (60422), it should only be named "LegitCheckControl.dl_" if you include a LegitCheckControl executable (ie, a hotfix type). You are including LegitCheckControl.cab instead, of which HFSLIP renames LegitCheckControl.dll to WGA1.DLL so the file in your FIX folder should be named "WGA1.DL_" (makecabbed WGA1.DLL).

3) In the current test release and the upcoming final version, *ALL* files named LegitCheckControl.dll coming from either a hotfix executable or from LegitCheckControl.cab are renamed to LCC.dll for the sake of conformity. So the file in your FIX folder will have to be called "LCC.dl_" then (makecabbed LCC.dll).

Maybe you should include a fix for the FIX folder :). Have HFSLIP rename "LegitCheckControl.dl_" or "WGA1.dl_" to "LCC.dl_", and compress "LegitCheckControl.dll" if that's in FIX.

OK thanks for the input. The make cab and all that will require some learning on my part. :(
If there are some step by step directions you could point me to that would be great.

In anycase, I was going off of foggy memory and FDV's directions - way back when I helped make some of it more clear to newbs like me lol. Is there an updated set of instructions anywhere? :wacko:

With LegitCheckCtrl/WinGenuinelyAnnoying, I think I tried it in the fix folder back then and it didn't work. Here I was just taking a stab at it to see if perhaps it would work that way now. It would be nice to figure out how to get that file in there just as a convienience from having to put it in sys32 post install. ;)

There's still another way. Just rename it to WGA1.DLL and put it in HFSLIP\HFEXPERT\APPREPLACEMENT\. The only thing you'll need to be sure of is that the file is newer than the one coming from LegitCheckControl.cab.

On the boot image subject -

so now that I have BOOT.BIN by using SuperMagician's getboot.cmd -OR- if I already had a boot image to use from before - I can empty the HFTOOLS folder and use one or the other boot image when making the final cd with nero?

There's still another way. Just rename it to WGA1.DLL and put it in HFSLIP\HFEXPERT\APPREPLACEMENT\. The only thing you'll need to be sure of is that the file is newer than the one coming from LegitCheckControl.cab.


Interesting, does this mean newer as in date the program/file was created or newer as in newer version number?
