HFSLIP, The 2K/XP/2K3 slipstreamer Support Ended
Posted 01 May 2006 - 04:53 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?

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.

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
T P was this to me? If so please elaborate. "Type in..." where? into what?
Number of downloads: 33

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).

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?
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.

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

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.
