If you have a legit XP CD, I can't explain myself how you ended up with no winnt32.exe. Anyway, here's a link for the XP Pro SP2 files

im tring to make a muiltboot dvd but the windows i want to put on dont have then winnt32.exe so i cant get $WIN_NT$.~BT and $WIN_NT$.~LS and i was wondering if there was some way to get aroud that cuz im trying to make a aio with 8 different windows xp and 1 windows 2003 and i was tring to use magiciso to make it but evey time i test it i get cannot boot from cd and ive made it twice and got the same probly and going through this guide i dont knwo how to get the to files needed sence i dont have winnt32.exe in any of my i386 folders

The files you want are on the install drive aftrer the first boot. You have to start a fresh install. When the system reboots you have to prevent it from booting from c: drive. Boot from a cd & the files you are looking for will be there. If the c: drive is ntfs formatted you would have to boot BartPE to be able to read them. Fat32 are visible from even win98 floppy disk.

i have a real xp but i was workign with tinyxp and i wanted to make a aio with those but none of them have the winnt.exe's in them

Tinyxp is for fresh install only. I don't think winnt.exe or winnt32.exe would work as files & folders required for upgrading your win98, ME or 2K are missing.

Has anyone gotten this to work with XP x64? I looked at the post about it, but it is quite vague.

to anyone that was reading my post i did a little more searching and found the files that i needed to finish up what i was doing and thanks to all who put all this info out on the web

How i do thats ??? i can not upen the file with winrar, someone tell me how ????

Note that svcpack.inf may come as svcpack.in_, just open it up with WinRar (for example) and extract the svcpack.inf inside it, then delete the svcpack.in_. As you can see Svcpack.inf will launch RunOnce.cmd at T-13 stage. The thing is that you'll have to addapt svcpack.inf according to the files you allready have in it, because when you change CatalogSubDir="\whatever" to CatalogSubDir="\i386" it may point to a diferent location and you'll get an error during installation, if you don't have any files inside then just don't worry about it. After you change svcpack.inf move it to C:\, open a command line and write this:

The File svcpack.inf I Have Starte With This, I Have All Updates To 16/12/06 In My svcpack.inf

[setupData]

CatalogSubDir="\I386\svcpack"

[setupHotfixesToRun]

KB926255.exe /q /n /z /b:SP2GDR

KB926247.exe /q /n /z /b:SP2GDR

KB925486.exe /q /n /z /b:SP2GDR

The Guide Will Have This

[setupData]

CatalogSubDir="\i386"

[setupHotfixesToRun]

CMD\RunOnce.cmd

Can someone tell a stupid danish gay, what it mean.

Thanks

Hi all!

It seems this post has been outdated for a while now... That's because MSFN stoped sending me emails for new posts :/

Well, now i'm here, and will be continuing writing on this thread.

TheExterminator you only have to right-click and choose "Open With..." and then choose WinRar. Easy ;)

TheExterminator let me explain :)

All extensions that end in *.in_ are compressed files. These files can be uncompressed with WinRar and the *.inf file within is the one you want :)

You can open *.inf files are simple text files, so you can open them with Notepad.

Now there may or may not be *.in_ files in your installation source. If there's only *.inf files, then you don't have to uncompress anything, easyer ;)

I hope I answered your question :)

Pliek, i'll be here if you need me ;)

Okay, But when i paste this in

[SetupData]
CatalogSubDir="\i386"
[SetupHotfixesToRun]
CMD\RunOnce.cmd

I will Chance my CatalogSubDir="\i386\svcpack"

And it will not work.

Oh yes, i believe i understand your question now. If you change CatalogSubDir="\i386\svcpack" to CatalogSubDir="\i386" just edit your svcpack.inf from

[SetupData]
CatalogSubDir="\I386\svcpack"

[ProductCatalogsToInstall]
KB873339.cat

to

[SetupData]
CatalogSubDir="\I386"

[ProductCatalogsToInstall]
svcpack\KB873339.cat

For example :)
