Using a F6 Driver with USB Floppy

44 posts in this topic

This fix will add support for USB floppy disks in the text mode portion of Windows Setup, and allow you to load F6 drivers.

This fix should work on Windows 2000 and up.

I have only tested it with a Sony USB floppy drive on Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 x64

EDIT: Thanks go out to everyone who has added more drives to this fix.

Windows Setup F6 USB Floppy Drive Fix

Create your Storage device driver disk and open textsetup.oem

Add the following lines to the bottom of [HardwareIds.scsi.(device name)]

If this section does not exist you must create it!

If your USB floppy drive still does not work, look for the hardware ID in the floppy drive driver's .inf file, and make sure any legacy floppy drives are disabled in the bios.

id = "USB\VID_03F0&PID_2001", "usbstor" #--HP
id = "USB\VID_054C&PID_002C", "usbstor" #--Sony
id = "USB\VID_057B&PID_0001", "usbstor" #--Y-E Data
id = "USB\VID_0409&PID_0040", "usbstor" #--NEC
id = "USB\VID_0424&PID_0FDC", "usbstor" #--SMSC
id = "USB\VID_08BD&PID_1100", "usbstor" #--Iomega
id = "USB\VID_055D&PID_2020", "usbstor" #--Samsung

Here is an example file

You are an absolute legend man. I googled everywhere for the answer to this, and it was all about slipstreaming the drivers to a new WinXP CD. Cheers man you saved me so much time.

That's exactly why I made the fix, I searched everywhere for a solution, and after about a day of research I realized the txtsetup.oem used the same formatting as txtsetup.sif. Which made sense, since MS likes to recycle code. This fix is more intened for people who can't make new windows CDs, like me. I couldn't make a new windows setup disc and tell my customer to install with it, not to mention the licencing issues. In a manufacturing setting this fix has saved me a ton of time.

It seems I left off the hardware id for NEC drives ( thanks to Greg for pointing that out)

Added Iomega drives ( thanks to Jammin )

updated list of hardware ids.

id = "USB\VID_03F0&PID_2001", "usbstor" #--HP
id = "USB\VID_054C&PID_002C", "usbstor" #--Sony
id = "USB\VID_057B&PID_0001", "usbstor" #--Y-E Data
id = "USB\VID_0409&PID_0040", "usbstor" #--NEC
id = "USB\VID_0424&PID_0FDC", "usbstor" #--SMSC
id = "USB\VID_08BD&PID_1100", "usbstor" #--Iomega

I don't understand.

You're putting the newly modified driver on a floppy, right? So how will the floppy be read from when its driver is not installed yet?

Can this method be extended to support USB thumb drives or HDDs? THAT would be really helpful.

I believe this method can be extended to USB thumb drives and USB hard drives, IF they are supported by the USBSTOR driver that is included in windows. You just need to find the hardware ID of your device, which can be found in the device manager. Look under the Universal Serial Bus controllers section for your device, goto it's properties, the details tab, then Hardware Ids, the bottom one should be the one you want. then just duplicate the formatting and add it to your txtsetup.oem file. I have not had a chance to test this, but I have loaded various other drivers via the F6 floppy method.

5eraph

When text mode first loads, it lets the system BIOS tell it what the floppy drives are, but once text mode finishes loading windows it no longer sees the USB floppy drives as a legacy floppy drive, instead it sees it as a USB device. This fix works because it tells windows what the USB device is, it exactly the same a loading a regular Mass Storage Device driver, Windows knows the device is there, it just doesn't know what it is. I hope that makes sence.

Am I doing this correctly? I use Freecom NEC USB floppy drive.

Is this possible to add this also in txtsetup.sif and/or dosnet.inf if needed?

Example:

Add following lines under section:

[HardwareIdsDatabase]

...

I don't know the correct syntax to implement this, maybe someone else has better knowledge to add those extra usb-floppy devices?

Hi guys,

I tried this solution with a USB KEY and it doesn't work at all ! It's weird because the USB KEY use exactly the same principle.

1) - Get the USB\VID adress :

With Devcon I list all the " hardware ID's of devices. " with the command line : Devcon /hwids * > OUT.TXT

#-----------------------------------------------------#

USB\VID_0930&PID_6540F8125605192D91E

Name: USB Mass Storage Device

Hardware ID's:

USB\Vid_0930&Pid_6540&Rev_0200

USB\Vid_0930&Pid_6540

#-----------------------------------------------------#

2) - Add the new ID within the " txtsetup.oem "

#--The following lines give additional USB floppy support

id = "USB\VID_03F0&PID_2001", "usbstor" #--HP

id = "USB\VID_054C&PID_002C", "usbstor" #--Sony

id = "USB\VID_057B&PID_0001", "usbstor" #--Y-E Data

id = "USB\VID_0409&PID_0040", "usbstor" #--NEC

id = "USB\VID_0424&PID_0FDC", "usbstor" #--SMSC

id = "USB\VID_08BD&PID_1100", "usbstor" #--Iomega

id = "USB\VID_055D&PID_2020", "usbstor" #--Samsung

id = "USB\Vid_0930&Pid_6540", "usbstor" #--MY USB KEY *

3) - Go to the BIOS configuration and enable the floppy emulation over the USB KEY

On theory everything is fine, except the fact that it doesn't work :unsure: , any ideas ?

Just to understand this right: To support USB Floppy drivers for F6 function, you don't have to change anything on the CD but in txtsetup.oem on the floppy? :wacko:

I wonder because windows setup is never told to load any usb floppy drivers? Or is USB support already enabled by default and just has to be "used"? My USB floppy drive LED never lights up when using F6 so how would changing txtsetup.oem make any difference?

There are Compatible ID's too. A Iomega USB floppy

USB\VID_08BD&PID_1100\5&1795AA7&0&2

Name: X1DE-USB

Hardware ID's:

USB\Vid_08bd&Pid_1100&Rev_0000

USB\Vid_08bd&Pid_1100

Compatible ID's:

USB\Class_08&SubClass_04&Prot_00

USB\Class_08&SubClass_04

USB\Class_08

XP txtsetup.sif contain some USB floppy Hardware ID's VID_*&PID_* . Some USB floppy drives are missing.

In addtition there are some usbstor Compatible ID's already.

USB\Class_08&SubClass_02&Prot_50 = "usbstor"

USB\Class_08&SubClass_05&Prot_50 = "usbstor"

USB\Class_08&SubClass_06&Prot_50 = "usbstor"

USB\Class_08&SubClass_04&Prot_00 is missing.

Hence the txtsetup.oem addon.

What about: add Compatible ID to txtsetup.oem?

#--The following lines give additional USB floppy support
id = "USB\Class_08&SubClass_04&Prot_00", "usbstor" #Compatible ID

awesome thread, indeed!

A friend of mine saw her brand new Sony Vaio VGN-FZ140E have a major hard disk crash last week. You know the story: no back-up (because it was new, she said), physical problem with the disk, a data recovery company charging tons of money, etc.

Anyway, I was trying to reinstall the OS (and downgrade from vista do Windows XP at the same time). As I didn't have a usb floppy I tried first with a usb pen drive, but didn't have much luck. Decided to give nlite a try, and was blown away by the program's capabilities.

Not only it recognized that I was using a Media Center's edition of Win XP, but also asked for the 2nd disk that comes with it, and nicely packed the drivers for my SATA controller (intel 82801HEM/HBM SATA AHCI) and turned the 3-cd's hassle into a nice custom DVD instead. Everything went smooth and in 10 minutes I was back on the game.

So, if you are stuck as many others here with F6 issue, etc, give nlite a try.

best,

guilherme ambros

Yes! Lets keep this going. Here's my contrib.

SanDisk U3 Cruizer Micro USB Device

id = "usb\VID_0781&PID_5406", "usbstor" #--sandisk

Haven't tested it yet but I'm sure this method can be refined even more; including more thurough instructions especially with thumb drives.

BTW Which txtsetup do you modify, the .oem that comes with the drivers (and if so where do you put it) or the txtsetup.sif in the i386 directory of the windows installation.

hi. im having a BIG problem here.. Im at a clients, ive wasted a full day. they want to boot from san, but I cant get the drivers for the qlogic fibre card working.

here is the full OEM file, please review and tell me where I am going wrong.

First off, It says insert disk in to drive a: am i missing something where I can use something else? im trying to use a USB drive.

The last line is obviously my USb cruzer drive/

PLEASE HELP, CLIENT ISNT HAPPY WITH ME

EDIT I got my lacie floppy drive to work THANKS for that. BUT the qlogic drive sys file says its corrupted... ive downloaded it 5 times... Do you think its actually corrupt? or just the way windows is reading it?

And actually, it fines the qlogic driver etc, and then it says "windows had a driver already, would you like to use the floppy, or microsofts" If i choose floppy it says the sys file is corrupt, if i choose micrsofts it says "no hard drive disks found"

what a freakin disaster

EDIT 2 - issues resolved. first off, diskette driver worked this time. driver from qlogic, recommended by tech support, was corrupt.. used a different driver from their site and im off and running.

wow am I thrilled.

thanks for pointing me in the right directions guys and gals

I'm using the 512 MB Memorex TravelDrive USB 2.0...

This is exactly what I see in the device manager for hardware ID:

USBSTOR\DISK&PROD_MEMOREX_TD_2B&REV_PMAP\07521C9238B9&0

Now my question is where specifically I insert this string in the txtsetup.oem file ?

Do I need the entire string ?

Please see my setup file below and indicate how I do this. Greatly appreciated !!!

:thumbup SPIFF, You are a god man! Your hack worked great the first time.

Nothing less than FANTASTIC! I wish I would have found this years ago.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
