HFSLIP - Test releases

2,380 posts in this topic

So, tommy, what exactly was FDV's "special request" for beta E?

:sneaky:

No biggie, really. In 2006 or so, I set permissions on all of the empty directories in 2000 in DEFLTWK.INF so that an admin call truly delete them. I carried that trick over to XP.

The added request for E is to run a new file, DELDIRS, to delete directories like:

system32\com_dmi, system32\ias, system32\1028 and others, etc. just before first boot.

There are a bunch listed in the file but networking in XP has a dependency on one of the folders, I don't know which one yet. I suspect dhcp or oobe. Haven't had time to find out.

So, beta E is just doing a bit more cleanup.

If this topic intrigues people, I encourage them to have a closer look at DEFLTWK.INF.

FWIW, I also assign WORLD to the time set permissions, and a few other little things as well, such as a branch in the registry required for my eventual mp3-Car PC fileset.

New beta is up. Inki discovered a flaw when slipstreaming drivers when not using hfcleanup. All is fixed. If you haven't used hfexpert or hfcleanup, then this change probably won't affect you. Remember, I can't test all cases out, so please test away and report back. I'd like to make this a final one day.

Helo TommyP, i used HFSLIP 1.7.10 BetaF and got this result in Windows XP SP3 PT-BR(Portuguese Brazilian):

vmerror.jpg

In this Screen Says: "The install Program Cannot copy the file msimsg.mui."

The log File is in Attach^^ i use 1.7.9 normally and works fine, this started with 1.7.10 Beta.

PS: I used VMWare 6.5 to run The ISO made from Nlite. I used Nlite only to make the ISO.

Thanks for any light!

Simbionte.

A new beta is up. Please test if you are a home user. If you are a working at a company or business, get lost and don't use this software. If there's one more business user that comes on this board and asks for help, I'm outta here.

simbionte - you discovered a lingering prob. There was an issue with your language of the script. There was a "fix" I posted in the installer thread a few months back that required a manual edit to fix things for your language. Hopefully I have automated that process with the new beta.

wela - thanks for posting. Hopefully others will follow suit and say they are successful too so I can make this a final and get on with my life. :)

If your language isn't Chinese or Portuguese, then this beta won't change things for you.

Sorry Tom, I thought that we should only post if having a problem with the betas...

Anyway, me to is succesfull, allthough I installed yesterday with rev.F and not the newest rev.G, but i'm using ENU so that shouldn't matter i believe...

All is OK with XP-SP3-ENU, HFCLEANUP and all security updates and high-priority non-security updates for the standard XP-SP3 components(except MRT, WGA, Package Installer and Windows Update Engine).

Thanks again for all your efforts, mate! :)

The new betas have worked for me 100% fine FWIW. 2000 and XP. Haven't tried 2003 with any betas beyond C, but C worked fine.

Sorry to be a party spoiler, but there may be a possible issue with Windows 2000 + DirectX 9 and KB975560/MS10-013 (quartz.dll, msyuv.dll)

(Unless, of course it is a glitch by MS or I fouled something up):

Installing Windows2000-DirectX9-KB975560-x86-ENU.exe manually presents no problem. However, when installing from a HFSLIP-based installation CD, the text-mode file copying phase is interrupted by the following error message:

The file msyuv.dll was not copied correctly

The file Setup placed on your hard drive is not a valid

Windows 2000 system image. If you are installing from a CD,

there may be a problem with the Windows 2000 CD.

- To retry, press ENTER.

- To skip this file, press ESC.

- To quit Setup, press F3.

Choosing the option to skip allows the installation to proceed, and once it is done, the file msyuv.dll on the hard drive is exactly the same as after a manual installation or what can be extracted from the hotfix installer. (Tried this with two CD burns, using betas F and G)

I had a feeling that the quartz hotfix wasn't going to be handled correctly. Put it into the sw1 folder and call it a day. or better yet, have you considered using the 2k update list instead of the old school unoffical sp5? Whatever the case is, I have no plans for fixing 2k. I've moved on.

I suppose though, you can manually edit the layout.inf file, locate the msyuv.dll entry and make it say msyuv.dll = 1,,,,,,,,3,3 instead. I don't recall is layout.inf is a protected file or not so do this on a test case. Other than that, I don't plan to investigate further.

Sorry to hear that, but OK and no sweat, if you say so. You're the Boss.

And thanks for the tip, I will be sure to try it out.... No joy, though, but that's cool.

Tommyp,

Successful report. I used 1.7.10 beta G to slipstream SP3, IE8, WMP11, RDC7, and most other updates

into Windows XP Pro, Gold (aka, Service Pack 0) source.

I used HFSLIPFC v2010/02/12 to prepare. This tool was VERY, VERY helpful.

FYI, I didn't use the HFCleanup utility or nLite.

After running HFSLIP I created a CD from the resulting .iso and used it to do a fresh install.

All worked great, no problems at all. Later I used the CD to do a repair install, all worked great there too! (See followup note below.)

You can help by checking if the binary removal files (2000SP4.EXT, XPSP1.EXT and XPSP2.EXT) cover everything. Download dumpdupes.cmd and place it in the main HFSLIP folder (alongside the normal HFSLIP executable). Run this tool AFTER you ran HFSLIP (it namely requires a SOURCE and a SOURCESS folder to compare). If there are any duplicate binaries that can be removed, a file called EXCLUDE.TXT will be created. Let me know if it contains additional files to those that already exist in the current removal files.

I'm confused, can someone please tell me which .EXT file I should be comparing to? My XP source is SP0 (Gold), I'm intregrating SP3.

Thank you so very much for all of your hard work, and for sharing it with us home users.

Lilla

2010-03-02 Followup. While the repair install I did above "appeared" to work, it was a simple case where I did a fresh install with network cable unplugged, then immediately did a repair install. Since I could open WMP11, notepad, etc. I concluded the repair install worked. But, today I tried to repeat this, and after doing the repair install I find IE8 doesn't work and CCleaner (installed after repair install) gives error messages. See my new post for details.

There's no need to do anything with the exclude.txt file. Thanks for reporting a success mission. :)

I personally do also use a exclude list simply by modifying HFSLIP.CMD. I only use it to exclude svn directories from being copied. Normally I should export my project first but using this hack I can run hfslip directly.

hfslip-1.7.10_beta_G (line 561)

TITLE %T1% - Copying Source
XCOPY/DE /EXCLUDE:HFTOOLS\EXCLUDE.TXT SOURCE SOURCESS

In HFTOOLS directory I now put a textfile:

EXCLUDE.TXT

Hi, sorry to be the that will say that something got wrong but this updates aren't getting slipped in the source:

WindowsXP-KB969084-x86-ptb.exe

WindowsXP-KB968389-x86-PTB.exe

WindowsXP-KB967715-x86-PTB.exe

after using hfslip i can see them in SVCPACK\ folder and also they are opened in the install process to the user press next,... not hidden.

I supposed they should be slipstreamed 'cause in HFSLIPFC and Mimo's list is said to put them on HF folder.

Is this normal? Should i make an addon with them? I add both log file and the .cmd after integrating everything from Mimo's list.

Also 905474 isn't getting to work, or better it's is installed but still asking to install it in the updates.

EDIT:OBS... I realized that the version i did download from hfslip site is old, so far that might be the problem, tonight i will try it again.

Sorry my bad english.

theruan - Sorry I can't help you if you didn't post the results from your last post. I don't know what I don't know.

A new beta is up. Please test if you are a home user. If you are using hfslip at a company or business, get lost and don't use this software. If there's one more business user that comes on this board and asks for help, I'm done with this.

When I use addons in HFAAO folder often shows me a request to replace the existing file.

What I need to change to the default script to overwrote all files?

thanks

dziubek - Does this happen with all AAO's? Or just this one in particular? The picture you show tells me that you are slipstreaming something AND HFAAO'ing the same thing. If not, I take it that you've been seeing this problem for a long time. This part of the script is unchanged from when tomcat76 wrote it.

hi dziubek, tp! i believe it's only for this particular addon ... had the same experience i posted a while back:
along the way too, the run was halted by:

E:\HFSlip179\TEMP\AAO\MSWINATL.CAT already exists. Overwrite it ?

[Y]es, [N]o, [A]ll, n[E]ver, [R]ename, [Q]uit

& i answered n[E]ver to stop the succeeding numerous prompts.

the other .cats but not all were: MSWINCRT.CAT, MSWINMFC.CAT

EDIT: had conversations with Kelsenellenelvian who prepared Kels_Runtimes_addon_v6.rar. he thinks it's most likely because .cats actually exist in couple of the asms folders & suggests removing asms folder from the runtimes & manually drop it into I386 folder. in my last successful build though using hfslip-1.5.0, i had an earlier ver of his pack: Kels_Runtimes_addon_v2.6.6.CAB (the structure's still basically the same) & it worked without hiccups. could there have been code modifications in hfslip-1.7.9 that might have affected the way this is processed now?

... a related thread may be found here ... though still want to see how hfslip works around asms-related concers ... thanks! cheers!

dz/kiki - the error message is due to either a limitation of rar.exe or the script is calling the incorrect commandline. I was unaware that hfslip supported rar files until today, unless it was one of those hidden easter eggs that tomcat put in.

If someone finds the correct commandline, then I'll roll the change in. Or better yet, manually extract the addon rar file and make it a conforming cab or 7z file instead.

hi tp! i recall rar files being supported way back ... i actually have rar.exe sitting in hftools ;) ... anyways, the .7z suggestion sounds greats ... thanks! cheers!

HFSLIP homepage for HFAAO states that it only supprt .cab & .7z format.

It never mentions support for .rar format at all (although I have seem some codes for RAR files in hfslip-xxx.cmd and I tested them before but never get it to work)

I simply convert .rar to .CAB or .7z. Usually no problem at all after reslip.
