  1. Yesterday
  2. I eventually just ran the installation file with the /overwriteoem switch, and it all came good with all three files now correct. This is exactly what I had to do back in January, for the same reason!
  3. Well, Brazil decided to match the US DST transition date of the first Sunday in November. Of course since Brazil is in the southern hemisphere, I assume they'll be going ON DST when the US goes OFF.
  4. TeamViewer crashes after update

    I use XP on a daily basis on XP and it was working fine 'till last week, but I might not have the very last version. I'm not at home right now, but as soon as I get back home, I'm gonna check with the latest update.
  5. cdob - Thanks for hal tip, i will try it. I made progress with clean Xp installation - YUMI with unattended nlite with Sata drivers - F7 for hal, after that i was able to complete instalation process, but there is something wrong with PS2/USB and my board, i dunno if whle Z370 chipset probelm or only Gigabyte implementation problem. At first phase of installation where is regional setting - not PS2 devices working, i later phase at least mouse is working, but after reboot at display setting - again nothing, rebooted and now im stuck at windows and still not usb and ps2, same at safe mode. I bios is USB legacy setting, XHCI usb setting and 60/64 port - i dont tried every combination yet, but i tried lot of them.. And bios and at boot menu keyboard is working. CMS enabled. Any hint?
  6. "Windows Starting" wrong language

    This is your issue: Change it to sv-SE, then remove en-US, using the procedure I gave you links to, Good luck!
  7. Well... it's consistent, at least! You can, of course, replace them by hand, but you must remember that you'd need to grab and rename ntkrnlmp.exe to ntoskrnl.exe and ntkrpamp.exe to ntkrnlpa.exe, because yours is a multiprocessor/multinucleus machine, and use the renamed files for the replacing, or the system will refuse to boot, as you do know. I know you've danced to that tune already once, so this is no news to you, but reminding of the pitfalls in critical tasks is never too much, right?
  8. "Windows Starting" wrong language

    This is what DISM had to show...
  9. Thanks Den! NTFS.SYS is correct, but the other two are 5.1.2600.7392 on the netbook, and 5.1.2600.7459 on the main machine. This is exactly the same scenario that I had before, where one file updated but the other two didn't. It may even have been with the exact same files!
  10. Checck whether C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntkrnlpa.exe, C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntoskrnl.exe and C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\ntfs.sys are v. 5.1.2600.7459. If so, hide the offer to update KB4101864 and forget about it. My 2¢ only, of course!

  12. I'm having trouble with one of this month's updates on my netbook. It installed fine on my main machine. It's KB4101864. I've installed it twice using MS update, and once with the standalone installation file. All three times it said it had installed successfully, but it the machine is still prompting me to install it. Is this the OEM list problem again? When that happened last time it was with an update which installed fine on my main machine but not on my netbook. I had to run it using a switch. Here's the installation log if it provides any clues. I can't see anything obvious there. The log is from the install from the standalone installation file. 3.110: ================================================================================ 3.110: 2018/04/19 19:58:32.359 (local) 3.110: d:\0d287e8b37264a579f96b6a53631\update\update.exe (version 3.110: Hotfix started with following command line: 3.110: In Function GetReleaseSet, line 1240, RegQueryValueEx failed with error 0x2 3.172: Exec Prereq.XPInstallEmbedded1.Section: Result System\CurrentControlSet\Control\WindowsEmbedded\ProductVersion Key Not Found 3.172: SYSTEM\WPA\WEPOS\Installed is Not Equal To Specified Value 3.172: System\WPA\WES\Installed is Not Equal To Specified Value 3.172: SYSTEM\WPA\POSReady\Installed is Equal To Specified Value 3.172: Second Condition in Prereq.XPInstallEmbedded2.Section Succeeded 3.172: Condition succeeded for section Prereq.XPInstallEmbedded.Section in Line 1 of PreRequisite 4.079: In Function TestVolatileFlag, line 11825, RegOpenKeyEx failed with error 0x2 4.079: In Function TestVolatileFlag, line 11857, RegOpenKeyEx failed with error 0x2 4.079: DoInstallation: CleanPFR failed: 0x2 4.079: In Function GetReleaseSet, line 1240, RegQueryValueEx failed with error 0x2 4.094: SetProductTypes: InfProductBuildType=BuildType.IP 4.094: SetAltOsLoaderPath: No section uses DirId 65701; done. 4.110: DoInstallation: FetchSourceURL for d:\0d287e8b37264a579f96b6a53631\update\update_SP3QFE.inf failed 4.125: LoadFileQueues: UpdSpGetSourceFileLocation for halmacpi.dll failed: 0xe0000102 4.125: BuildCabinetManifest: update.url absent 4.125: Starting AnalyzeComponents 4.125: AnalyzePhaseZero used 0 ticks 4.125: No d:\windows\INF\updtblk.inf file. 4.125: SetupFindFirstLine in LoadExclusionList Failed with error: 0xe0000102 4.125: SetupFindFirstLine in LoadExclusionList Failed with error: 0xe0000102 4.125: Enumerating Devices of computer, GUID {4d36e966-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318} 4.438: SetupVerifyInfFile failed with error 0x490 for hal.inf of device ROOT\ACPI_HAL\0000 5.032: OEM file scan used 907 ticks 5.079: d:\windows\system32\ntkrnlpa.exe is in the list of oem drivers...skipping copy! 5.172: d:\windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe is in the list of oem drivers...skipping copy! 5.282: AnalyzePhaseOne: used 1157 ticks 5.282: AnalyzeComponents: Hotpatch analysis disabled; skipping. 5.282: AnalyzeComponents: Hotpatching is disabled. 5.282: FindFirstFile d:\windows\$hf_mig$\*.* 5.750: AnalyzeForBranching used 0 ticks. 5.750: AnalyzePhaseTwo used 0 ticks 5.750: AnalyzePhaseThree used 0 ticks 5.750: AnalyzePhaseFive used 0 ticks 6.235: AnalyzePhaseSix used 485 ticks 8.516: AnalyzeComponents used 4391 ticks 8.516: Downloading 0 files 8.516: bPatchMode = FALSE 8.516: Inventory complete: ReturnStatus=0, 4406 ticks 11.625: CreateUninstall = 0,Directory = D:\WINDOWS\$NtUninstallKB4101864$ 11.625: Num Ticks for invent : 7515 11.688: VerifyTargetFileSize: Unable to verify size as Source = NULL for file d:\windows\inf\HFXAF.tmp 11.813: Copied file: d:\windows\inf\branches.inf 21.016: Allocation size of drive D: is 4096 bytes, free space = 317855932416 bytes 21.032: Drive D: free 303131MB req: 5MB w/uninstall 0MB 21.032: CabinetBuild complete 21.032: Num Ticks for Cabinet build : 9407 21.032: DynamicStrings section not defined or empty. 21.032: FileInUse:: Detection disabled. 22.032: LoadFileQueues: UpdSpGetSourceFileLocation for halmacpi.dll failed: 0xe0000102 26.579: System Restore Point set. 26.641: PFE2: Not avoiding Per File Exceptions. 27.235: DoInstallation: Installing assemblies with source root path: d:\0d287e8b37264a579f96b6a53631\ 27.235: Num Ticks for Copying files : 6203 27.329: Num Ticks for Reg update and deleting 0 size files : 94 27.344: DoInstallation: ApplyAdminSystemAclsRecursive for d:\windows\$hf_mig$\KB4101864 failed; error=0x00000003 27.344: UpdateSpUpdSvcInf: Source [ProcessesToRunAfterReboot] section is empty; nothing to do. 33.516: RebootNecessary = 0,WizardInput = 0 , DontReboot = 1, ForceRestart = 0 Any suggestions gratefully received!
  13. "Windows Starting" wrong language

    Thanks! I have noticed that I created a boot USB with nvme and that even boots from English...... I will have a look at DISM to see what gives.... boookie32
  14. Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

    They couldn't fix a p*** up in a brewary...so not much hope of them getting anywhere with Linux...
  15. Hmm, I don't know/remember exactly, since I don't load the router site that much when Internet is working.
  16. My build of New Moon (temp. name) a.k.a. Pale Moon for XP

    ....... that lacks competence. ___________________________________ Ublock Origin 1.16.0 is out.

  18. Automatically execute bat script after winpe is loaded

    You wouldn't be able to execute the command in the windowsPE phase because the hard drive will be blank. If your applications are in your image, then you would need to run it during specialize or oobeSystem phase. If you are only running one command, it doesn't matter if you run synchronous or asynchronous. The difference between the two is the equivalent to running something from cmd using /wait command. For partitions, if you are using setup.exe, then you use the answer file to set up partitions. If you are using DISM to appy the image, you use diskpart.
  19. "Windows Starting" wrong language

    I believe it has to do with the capabilities of your install media. There are install sources of many languages, but the "default" or common is en-US (and en-gb did not exist for Windows 7), and additional languages were achievable on that locale by using the LIP or Language Interface Pack. It would basically make it so you would have English OS and then it would change UI elements (that it supported) to the language pack you had installed. So you could change between languages as you wanted, or had the ability to support multiple languages on the same machine. This is different from a localised version of Windows, where whatever language is the default and acts as the opposite, where you would have to enable English if you wanted to. The difference here is that the LIP is designed to run for Explorer shell, but your boot UI is loaded before Explorer and thus before the LIP. So an En-US Windows 7 will show english boot UI, but say, a es-ES Windows 7 (Spanish version, the only non en-us without LIP Win7 I have made an image for) will have Spanish boot UI. You can try running DISM to get the info. DISM /ONLINE /Get-Intl
  20. User mode and kernel mode space?

    You can see memory mapping in Device Manager. They are in hex and here is an example of mine: I am not certain that I am calculating things properly, but if the highlighted option is the entirety of my video card, then it comes out to allocation some 800MB (or is it Mb?) of my total allocation of "3.25" GB, which seems correct because the memory shown in System Properties for me is 4.00GB (2.43GB usable), whereas 3.25 - 0.8 = 2.45. And this video card is only 128MB, but is running 3 displays and now that I think of it, may be relating to some performance issues I've had on this computer. ANYWAYS, I thought to figure this out because it is mentioned on a site from 2006, where the images are missing. I only did the one thing, but maybe you can make use of it further: https://hardforum.com/threads/understanding-address-spaces-and-the-4gb-limit.1035670/
  21. WinNTSetup v3.8.9

    @JFX Just a couple of more suggestions for a future release. I think that \Windows\Boot\Resources\bootres.dll should be added to wimbootcompress.ini, otherwise you'll get no boot logo in win 8 in compact/wimboot mode (not tested in win 8.1). Win 8.1, if installed in compact/wimboot mode, ends with both wof.sys and wofadk.sys enabled, I think would be better to set the start wof.sys to 4 while adding wofadk.sys and setting it to 0. Not that I have faced an actual problem, but in general having two drivers trying to get the same resources at the same time, doesn't sound as a good thing.
  22. Last Versions of Software for Windows 95

    Oh, that's a nice idea. I mean, using 2.5" to CF adapter to speed up Win 95 on a laptop. Those old disks are very slow and noisy. But I don't know if such a large "disk" would work. But I guess installing Win95 (and additional software) on a CF in a VM would be much faster. Especially with K6-2 and +2.1Ghz patches. I'm currently testing Windows 95C in VirtualBox. But I'm just trying to figure out what works and what updates/patches to install so I can make an ISO with all needed software before the real installation.
  23. BSNL randomly hanging up despite DSL LED

    In what IP range does your WAN IP normally look like, such as 157.x.x.x?
  24. Last Versions of Software for Windows 95

    Oops. OpenOffice.org 1.1.5. There are also two fixes after that (1, 2). I read somwhere that 2.0.x can be made to run on Win95 too. But I can't find the source (edit: of the rumor) and patches. Version 2.x and newer have a bit nicer GUI and support ODT (I think).
  25. even other users spotted that. https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?p=135005#p135005 and even MC had something to say to MT. https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?p=137686#p137686
