Hum, i didn't realized the example file has "???" on it, sorry about that :)

You should change those ??? with PRO1.DAT according to my tutorial. Of course you can name the boot file, what ever you what :)


No, your example file is OK, but I was unsure, since I dont have "pro1.dat" file at all.

PRO1.dat is just a bootfile. if you look at most of the examples it tells you how to create pro1.dat etc. in your case pro1.dat would boot polish and pro2.dat would boot english. Basically its the standard boot file with a modification to make it boot from a folder other than i386 (the default folder)

I've followed all the steps in the tutorial, but all i've got, is 'pro1.bin' and 'pro2.bin' files. Shouldn't I use those names instead of 'pro1.dat'?

Well, it seems CDShell has a preference for *.dat files, i've never actually tried with the *.bin extension, it was a too-easy-to-bother detail :P
If you've tried it, please report back so i can simplify a little bit more the tutorial :)
Good luck ;)

Damn, it doesn't work for me, and I've been trying this for almost 2 days now.
But everytime I get this weird manifest error.

What am I doing wrong?

Posted Image Posted Image

I extracted my files from the TechNet ISO called "en_winxp_pro_with_sp2.iso". (CD Name: VX2PFPP_EN)
If I install with this ISO directly, Windows Setup works just fine.
I also tried with my German and Japanese files, but the same error occurs.

I'm using Virtual PC 6.0.142.0 (2007).

Please help!

Hi Wuschmaster, from those images it looks like you mixed up some files from sources with diferent languages, ence the "Invalid character" error. I would say the problem resides on the winntbbu.(can´t remember extension) file. But you may have also mixed up some other files as well. Check for that and report back please :)

Good luck!

Thanks for mirroring the original guide but what I need is the
original command you paste in the Start > Run box to obtain
the boot files, because I am using Server 2003 not XP and this
guide only covers XP with an automated SFX to get the boot files.

Anyone know the command?!

I know its something to do with: winnt32.exe /noreboot but I can't remember it!

DOH! Thats literally all it is:

D:\I386\WINNT32.EXE /noreboot

Don't do a dynamic update, click advanced and tick to copy all files from
the CD, then when its done that, grab the files from C:\$WIN_NT$.~BT

Then whatever you do, make sure to take the lines out of C:\boot.ini :rolleyes:

Sorry if you read this, you didn't need to :P

>C:\DVD\SETUP\Server2003\Standard\I386\CMD\RunOnce.cmd

Hi I am kinda new at this, well not kinda new I am new. But was looking at the cd layout and was wondering if i actually need more then 1 copy of the
C:\DVD\SETUP\XP\Professional
folder for dif setups of xp pro? ie if i add unattended or software its all done in the pro1 pro2 etc folders and the install.cmd of course? Am i correct on this? Or do i actually have to have separate real folders for each pro version as well as the pro1 pro2 folders?
Also if i have one install with hotfixes and 1 without then i def would need separate folders i think right?
Sorry for all the questions but its only way i will know for sure. I kinda want one install at sp2 but want one at current hotfix lvl as well and possibly each of those with and without software as well which from waht i see above would only need 2 dif full cd's one with hotfixes and one without and do rest in pro1 2 3 and 4 etc?

Also I used the sfx file to make the boot files for my pro1 folder but it does not copy the ntldr file to it so my iso would not run and gives the error I have read about where some had problems it finding ntldr. Anyway I copied it over manually and it works but thought it should be known that the sfx does not copy it.

Thanks in advance

Hi dreadlord!

Well, if i understood right, your plan is to have 4 choices to install from:
XP Pro SP2 without hotfixes
XP Pro SP2 without hotfixes with software
XP Pro SP2 with hotfixes
XP Pro SP2 with hotfixes and software

You can do this by having 2 separate sources on your DVD, one with hotfixes, one without. In each source you can have 2 diferent boot folders, one that installs sofware, one that doesn't. So the final DVD layout for those 4 separate choices would be something like this:
C:\DVD\ - Multi boot DVD Source
C:\DVD\BOOT\ - CDShell folder
C:\DVD\PRO1\ - Boot folder 1 for XP Pro SP2 with hotfixes
C:\DVD\PRO2\ - Boot folder 2 for XP Pro SP2 with hotfixes and software
C:\DVD\PRO3\ - Boot folder 3 for XP Pro SP2 without hotfixes
C:\DVD\PRO4\ - Boot folder 4 for XP Pro SP2 without hotfixes, with software
C:\DVD\SOFTWARE\SOFTWARE\ - Folder where software is placed
C:\DVD\SOFTWARE\Install.cmd - CMD file that takes care of the software installation
C:\DVD\SOFTWARE\SOFTWARE_ALL\ - Folder where software for all OSs is placed
C:\DVD\SETUP\XP\ProWithHotfixes\
C:\DVD\SETUP\XP\ProWithoutHotfixes\

So, yes you need 2 separate source folders because you want one OS with hotfixes, one without, but don't need 2 more to install software, the guide is written exactly to avoid that situation.

Hope it helped,
André Casal

I'm stuck right now. I'm trying to include a highly customized unattended XPSP2 install that I created months ago with nLite. I don't have a winnt32.exe file in my i386 folder. How do I get the boot files?

Hi tknaught :)

Well, i suppose you have the original Windows Source, so you just need use the SFX geitonaki built (Automatically create multi-boot folders and files (thanks to geitonaki)) and extract the needed files from original source.

You have another option though, create a copy of your files on the hard drive, press Start -> Run -> Browse to Winnt32.exe and add the "/noreboot" command, somethinglike this: "C:\source\Winnt32.exe /noreboot".

Use what suits you better, good luck :)

Ok. First of all. Absolutely, total kick-butt guide. The best I've found. I've been fighting with Powerpacker & am happy to have found a way to make my cd manually.

However, I have an issue w/ DriverPacks currently.

First, my setup:
Posted Image

There's XP PRO VOL, XP PRO OEM, XP Home OEM, and XP Home RTL.
THere's different folders for the 5 different XP VOL Keys we have.
All of which have been integrated w/ RVM, and have some other packs applied, and are working swimmingly.

As you can tell from the screenshot, my current configuration includes and $OEM$ and OEM folder in each /Setup/XP/<folder>

These are the RVM packs everything was build from. Since the $OEM$ is exactly the same for all folders, CDImage is nice enough to save me a ton of space.
However, I don't know if that's the correct approach.....although I've verified it works.

More importantly, though, Driver Packs is NOT working, and I'm trying to figure out why.

Currently, the XP Source folders all have driver packs applied individually......and obviously work that way, as a single install CD.

However, when I put them in the multiboot, we're hosed
Posted Image

I don't know exactly how driver packs work yet, but I know there's a presetup.cmd, I just don't know how it's called.

From what I can tell currently, the only thing changed with the multiboot approach is that the TXTSETUP.SIF has one line changed
Posted Image

And although presetup.cmd is in the file, there is obviously something amuck w/ the current use of my OEM folder (automatically created by driver packs)

So, my questions are as follows:
#1. What is the most correct approach for the $OEM$ folder? One per setup source underneath the /Setup directory, or is there a better method
#2. Aside from trying driver packs w/ the multiboot approach, which is my next test, is there a way to make my current driver pack setup work properly?

And again, this thread kicks major butt. Thanks a ton.
My next step once I fix driver packs is to add on a slipstreamed 2K3 (Ent, Std, Web),and finally, a custom XPE (think Sherpya) buld I already have.

FYI, I did not have a need for using the install.cmd/<youros>.tag method because my apps are integrated already via SVCPack, regedts are imported via commands.txt and then I use WPI after installation.

Thanks for any reply.
Calpha.

PS. The create folders batch file blew my **** mind....looking at the source. And I'm a developer. I was totally impressed with the tricks applied in changing the file contents and never would have thought in a million years to do it........although admittedly, I don't understand the code exactly.......but am trying.

PSS. I will update when I try method 2 (multiboot apprach) with applying the driver packs.

Update: Driver Packs Working

I missed two things.

#1. Do Driver Packs Last. I was running the create_folders_.cmd on my Sources and then doing the driver packs. DOH!
#2. Bashrat's directions work perfectly for multiboot: I flummoxed the last try somehow, but they're working now.

Here's more clarification:
I have 6 Versions of XP currently.

These folders all exist at c:\dvd\setup\xp\

XP-VLK (RVM UpdatePack, 20+ Addons)
XP-VLK-MINI (RVM UpdatePack IE7, WMP11)
XP-OEM (RVM UpdatePack, 20+ Addons)
XP-OEM-MINI (RVM UpdatePack IE7, WMP11)
XPHomeOEM ( UpdatePack, 20+ Addons)
XPHomeRTL (UpdatePack, 20+ Addons)

From there, XP-VLK-MINI has 5 diff't keys so there's 11 options in my CDMenu, but 5 of them are all built from the XP-VLK-MINI.

Soooo------the catch is to follow directions correctly, and you don't have any issues.

Given:
c:\DVD
c:\DVD\SETUP\XP\XP-PRO-VLK

I create one DPACK .INI file for each folder underneath c:\dvd\setup\xp in DISC MODE
Then create one more more INI file in multiboot mode.
Make sure to select C:\DVD as the boot folder

Slipstream!

The results?
#1. C:\DVD\OEM created. This is the .7z'd DPacks......
#2. C:\DVD\SETUP\XP\XP-PRO-VLK\$OEM$ created if it's not there, and DPS ROE, etc, added.

NOW, run the create folders cmd.......

------------------------------------------

The only catch now, is I wish there was one place I could put my $OEM$ folder on the disk instead of one $OEM$ in every C:\DVD\Setup\XP\XP-PRO-VLK\$OEM$ and every os afterwards :)

The files you're looking for are the .BIN files.

I just changed my cdshell entries to chain the .BIN and everything worked.

If you followed the example exactly, you would have a PRO1.BIN ----- and this file would be the loader that CDShell calls.

Hi calpha, thank you for the complements, really appreciated :)

So the major question is:
"What is the most correct approach for the $OEM$ folder? One per setup source underneath the /Setup directory, or is there a better method?".
Well, this guide was build with easy maintenance and performance in mind, avoiding the use of a $OEM$ folder, so we don't have to wait it's DVD-HD copy time, installing everything directly from DVD. Anyway, as far as i can remember, there is no way to access a $OEM$ folder outside the source itself, so we would have to stick with a $OEM$ folder for each source. However, if you really need a $OEM$ folder, you can simulate one, by just having a command to copy-paste a specified folder (what $OEM$ does) to the HD. But then again if you want to copy something from the DVD to the HD, just use the Install.cmd and you can use just one folder to keep your files in :)

See you soon ;)

Hey!
Thanks for this! I can see alot of hard work has gone into it! :)

Right, im having problems tho.
Im trying to put on: XP Pro SP1 + SP2, XP Home SP1 + SP2, with them all tweaked in nLite v1.4b. (I only have Sp1, so I will have to use nLite to slipsttream SP2)
Ive tired this.
1.) Ripping Pro + Home to HDD, copying them, renaming them to SP2, ready to be updated.
2.) Applying "create_boot_folder.cmd". Which worked fine!
3.) Then on each of the OSs, did the nLite mods (all fine)

but when I came to be trying it out, in the XP setup on ALL the OSs, it was saying alot of files where missing! So then I deleted it all, and switch step 2 & 3 the other way around.
This also didn't work, this time on both SP1, it said that "ntkrnlmp.exe" with error code 14 (google didn't help out)
and with SP2, it said that please put in a floppy disk into A:, with XPSP2.

So when do I apply nLite then?

I believe you can use CDShell for bootup just about anything, just read the official site for more info. About winnt32.exe, yes, if you remove "manual install & upgrade" the file get's removed. You must redo your install.

Greetings,

erm, how does

Automatically create multi-boot folders and files (thanks to geitonaki)
- Download geitonaki's SFX file
- Execute it and browse to your DVD folder. When finished it will open create_boot_folders.cmd, modify it to your needs.
- It will create the PRO1 boot folder, modify setupldr.bin, modify txtsetup.sif, create the PRO1.bin boot sector and copy the WIN51, WIN51IP and WIN51IP.SP1 (WIN51IP.SP2 if Service Pack 2) tag files.

call create_boot_folder.cmd C:\DVD\SETUP\XP\Professional C:\DVD PRO1 FOO 0

work?

folders are not created and there are no errors when running ...

my code
call create_boot_folder.cmd C:\OS Deploy\DVD\SETUP\XPPROX2.1-DNP C:\OS Deploy\DVD PROX2.1DNP FOO 0

@andreqcasal

firstly thank you again :) I made almost 90% but there is a litte problem.

I just created XP, 2003 Standart and 2003 Enterprise. Regular setups are fine but when I press to "Unattended" nothing gonna happen :) Just like Regular setup, windows installation needs all informations.

Same here like Dunky12.

This is my Winnt.sif file:

;SetupMgrTag
[Data]
AutoPartition=1
MsDosInitiated="0"
UnattendedInstall="Yes"

[Unattended]
UnattendMode=FullUnattended
OemSkipEula=Yes
OemPreinstall=No
TargetPath=\WINDOWS
Repartition=Yes
DetachedProgram="%SystemRoot%\System32\cmd.exe /c @ECHO something>%SystemDrive%\XPPRO.TAG"

[GuiUnattended]
AdminPassword=*
EncryptedAdminPassword=NO
OEMSkipRegional=1
TimeZone=130
OemSkipWelcome=1

[UserData]
ProductID=xxxxx-xxxxxxx-xxxxxxx-xxxxxxx-xxxxx
FullName="adsdasasf"
OrgName="fafasafsfas"
ComputerName=*

[TapiLocation]
CountryCode=90

[RegionalSettings]
LanguageGroup=6
SystemLocale=0000041f
UserLocale=0000041f
InputLocale=041f:0000041f

[Identification]
JoinWorkgroup=WORKGROUP

[Networking]
InstallDefaultComponents=Yes


i saved this sif file into PRO2. But nothing happening at the boot screen. It need time zone informations, formatting, bla, bla, bla :)

Thanks for your kindly help andreqcasal

if exist %SystemDrive%\XPPRO.TAG call :XPPRO
REM checks for the XPPRO2.tag and go to the corresponding section:
if exist %SystemDrive%\XPPRO2.TAG call :XPPRO2
REM checks for the SERVER2003.tag file and go to the corresponding section:
[if exist %SystemDrive%\SERVER2003.TAG call :SERVER2003
REM End
goto :end


Why did we use "[if exist" there? Should it be "if exist"?

What is the difference between "if exist" and "[if exist"?

ALSO :) I still couldn't do UNATTENDED :( This is my 14th hours. I did several ways, several modifies but nothing changed.

Do you think why I couldn't it? Which file is calling "WINNT.SIF" file? Maybe that file is broken so WINNT.SIF couldn't calling from system.

EDIT:

I don't have:

%~dp0\Software\Program3.exe
%~dp0\Software\Program2.exe
%~dp0\Software\Program1.exe


and

%~dp0\Software\Tweak.reg


This can be problem?

FINALLY, I FOUND WHERE THE PROBLEM IS:

Add an Unattended option:
This section will teach you how to add an option which let's you install Windows unattendedly.

- Copy the PRO1 folder and PRO1.DAT file to "Copy of PRO1" and "Copy of PRO1.DAT"
- Rename it to PRO2 and PRO2.DAT
- Edit winnt.sif to include the unattended options.
This may be a good time to read the ref.chm file in Microsoft Deployment Too..


This way is completely useless for my bootdisk:

- Copy the PRO1 folder and PRO1.DAT file to "Copy of PRO1" and "Copy of PRO1.DAT"
- Rename it to PRO2 and PRO2.DAT


Main idea is this: When you copy and renamed like PRO2 and PRO2.DAT, PRO2.DAT don't see "PRO2", it still see "PRO1". So that, if you want to create a UNATTENDED version, you have to do same things like doing in PRO1. I mean you have to use Create_boot_folders.cmd for PRO2 too.

Thanks to andreqcasal again for this greate guide.

Sorry for the late reply, i am on vacations and i am using someone's wireless network with my laptop (ssshhh) :D
Major mistake by me, forgot to update that section of the guide when i implemented the Create_boot_folders.cmd, many thanks for your input ysfozy! There are two ways to go around that problem, reusing the Create_boot_folders.cmd or by manually editing setupldr.bin in the PRO2 folder so that all references to PRO1 now point to PRO2, and hex-edit PRO2.DAT so that it points to PRO2 as well (wich is kinda easy). I will update the guide as soon as i can, thanks again ysfozy ;)
