  1. Is there any easy way to integrate drivers?

    you know not stuff that risks messing up my Windows 2000 and then I have to redo everything.

    I want to integrate drivers to my Windows 2000 CD?

    What I am asking is, is there any freeware to integrate drivers, or software to make a self extracting driver install and install with svcpack?

    nLite doesn't work, nor does any other method easy to use.

  2. So does this software means all your computers that are legally licensed but if one computer goes rebel (you know replacing messed up Bioses) you don't have to activate each reinstall.

    Yeah I hate that when you have to reactivate each time you reinstall because if you get viruses or attacks constantly Microsoft will think you're giving it to tons of people. They thought I did that and I think they started attacking my computer as revenge against the pirates game they play.

    I search, and try all these tricks to try to fix my computer to where I don't have to keep activating.

    Why can't I just activate once and then it locks a file onto the Bios and when you reinstall your retail XP you just reinsert that file in your retail copy and it will know you already activated and your done. No Microsoft Hacking your computers, No activating constantly, and No constant activation.

  3. The instructions given here work just fine for Windows NT 4.0. I used something similar to slipstream the additional fixpacks into SP6a. You can even add registry hacks to HKLM this way too.

    Windows 95, Windows NT and Windows 3.1 were written when microsoft encouraged that sort of thing. I learnt the particular secrets from the Windows 3.1 (DOS version) resource kit.

    By the time Windows 98, 2000, etc came to town, Microsoft was insisting that IE was part of the OS, and made rather stiff process to prevent the install files and fixpacks from being modified. We see this with experiments like that Windows File protection thing, and a few other sorts of things, such as CAT files.

    The actual hack of SP6a to SP6b took me something like 3 to 4 hours. You end up with a single exe file that has all of the fix-packs and quickfixes rolled into one.

    This in turn becomes the basis of the J386 package, which is the slipstream of SP6b into the I386 files. This in itself prevents you having to reinstall the service packs and later fixes every time you change the system.

    However, you will find that with NT5, there is all this crap about digital signatures based on CRC or MD5 signatures, which means you just can't replace a file with another of the same name.

    How did you integrate SP6 into Windows NT?

    I always wanted to do that. Even someone begged nLite to allow NT and I think a few others also.

    I need to know because I have Windows NT Laying around and don't know how to patch it. Besides since it no longer gets security patches support it will be easy to patch Windows NT.

  4. I'm with you Hyipo. I can't see this project fail. Heck if a government organization is warning about security flaws maybe we should take care of Hyipo's SP5 problem more seriously. Besides the huge vunerability now is in the kernel. We can't disable the kernel so now we need to seal the vunerabilities in SP5. We need a team not one person that hasn't been on in a while.

  5. Hi,

    Unfortunately this project is on hold until Gurgelmeyer returns. His last post was over a month ago, on "Jul 19 2006, 10:22 AM" .

    So I think now is a good time to make it official!

    I will continue to host all of the files, but I can not provide support! Sorry!

    My hope is that Gurgelmeyer returns soon and that the MSFN admins leave everything as is for a bit.

    Please. Thank You!

    Sorry for the bad news,


    I could help until he returns. What about the the DHS said about needing to apply the newer updates because now the kernal may have vunerabilities. I could make a more updated SP until he returns, or help him.

  6. How to make a custom SP like gurgemeyer did?


    I know how he made SP5. I used the same method but now I figured it out.

    1. You take out the contents of SP4, or SP5 by extracting it. You can use 7Zip to extract it by right clicking then extract. It really works to extract exes with 7-Zip but only certain exes can extract with 7zip.
    2. you edit the \update\update.inf to add more contents
    3. You add, or replace the updated files into the extracted Service Pack layout.
    4. Then once your done you don't need a special SP installer. All you have to have is a installer that will extract the files into a certian location, then run the update.exe file.

    That's how you make custom service packs.

    How to integrate the custom SP:

    If you wanted to integrate it but don't have the /integrate option just install the files into a custom folder then just use the update\update.exe -s:folder_of_Custom_Service_Pack.

    How to integrate hotfixes, updates, and maybe even updates of WMP:

    Now to integrate hotfixes, and regular non-security updates what you need to do is replace the files like I told you, and add any files that are included in the update, then you take certain contents out of the hotfixes update.inf, then add it to your custom SPs update.inf.

    Some examples on what to do to directly integrate all updates in your custom SP:

    no svcpack installs necessary

    say for example we wanted to integrate a Directx hotfix if we already integrated directx directly.

    Windows2000-KB904706-DX9-x86-ENU.exe(You must extract the exe file using 7-Zip)//update/update.inf

    then you cut, or copy the contents in [Copy.system32] such as quartz.dll then paste it in your custom SP's update.inf under [Copy.system32] with the other ???.dll, or .exe.

    then you cut, or copy the contents in [Copy.dllcache] such as quartz.dll then paste it in your custom SP's update.inf under [Copy.dllcache] with the other ???.dll, or .exe.

    then you cut, or copy the contents in [sourceDisksFiles] such as quartz.dll=1 then paste it in your custom SP's update.inf under [sourceDisksFiles] with the other ???.dll, or .exe=? (exm. 1).

    then if [Test.FileVer.Section] has this content:

    GreatOrEqualOp = CheckFilever, System32.Files, quartz.dll , >= ,


    then I recommend you put it in the [Test.FileVer.Section] so your file can be updated in the registry. That way Windows Update won't ask you to install the update you already integrated. A good test is WindizUpdate because you don't have to have WGA just to test it.

    Also always integrate the /update/?????????.CAT, or .cat then place them in [Extract SP]/svcpack/place .cat's here. Then open your svcpack.inf and put your extra .cat file with the other .cat file entrees.

    After your done do the update.exe -s:Drive:\path\to\your\Copied\Operating\System\Files\ (also that's where your i386 is also too just so you know).

    You can even pack it in a installer, or in a Inno Setup file then have it ready for download on MSFN. You know post the download mirrors.

    One more thing is you need to take out the contents out of update.ver and replace the existing entrees in the SP5s update.ver.


    Now please make this a sticky. This is very useful information. I found out this method. Now I know what Gurgelmeyer knows. You could even use Inno Setup.

  7. We need to know.

    How does he make SP5.

    With Post SP2 for XP it's constantly updated but not SP5.

    I want to make my own personal service pack because it's taking too long to include new updates.

    I know your sick, and I understand your situation but I can't wait and getting too many update errors.

    If it's all in the service pack then no more update errors.

  8. I want to integrate my Intel raid driver. Using nLite I have added the driver from the disk I would normaly use when prompted after pressing F6. However, when windows starts up it still reads the file from the disk. Then after the format when file copying starts it stops and says it cant find file IASTOR.sys. I can see that it looks on the disk, but it seems not to find it.

    How do I integrates this driver into my sliptreamed XP cd so that windows will see the file when it starts copying the files.

    The same type thing happens to me. If theres a bug I may report it in the bug reports. A lot of people right now seem to be having problems with integrating drivers. Should I go back to a older nLite since the whole point was to integrate drivers, and the newer ones got some type of driver bug.

    How come so many people now after they integrate regular drives they have file copying problems in DOS Installation of XP, or 2000.

  9. I've never found bugs in nLite..I have a big bowl of nLite every morning and have never seen anything crawling in it..nLite is great and fits easily into any over head storage compartment!

    If there are no bugs in nLite how come when I integrate drivers I have errors and have to start fresh. The only time I suceed in making a good disk was altering the disk, USP5, and integrating updates. A lot of times with nLite I had to redo the disk over and over again.

    How come theres no bugs.

    If there were no bugs in nLite how come there are updates to nLite. sorry about that. I'm just mad because I wanted to integrate drivers too but failed like everyone else.

    I do benefit from nLite too like without it how could I make a bootable disk, and ISOs. Nothing is wrong with having bugs. Every software has bugs. No human being is perfect, and we all make mistakes.

  10. nLite really has done a lot to try to help and most don't realise it.

    nuhi You do a lot of work and charge no money for nLite. Is that correct?

    I should appreciate things that are free. Most have charged because no one said thanks.

    Thank you for this project nLite. You have done a lot of work and a lot of time and dedication. Also thank you other team members that helped in the nLite project.

    Also thank you ZCWorld for all your work and dedication in the addons forums.

    You have all done a lot of time and work and thank you for nLite.

    Does anyone else want to thank the nLite makers, and team for all their work, and dedication to making Windows a whole lot easier?

  11. For some reason my disks cannot take hardly any MSI installers and I want a Apache service runnig right after installation of Apache.

    I don't want any preinstallations. No preinstallations I only want the latest Apache, and latest MySQL addons.

    I am making my own since I added more features like MySQL support, PHP5, GDImage, and maybe more.

    So could you make the 2 addons? Pretty please with the server cherry on top!

  12. Do you think maybe someone could work on the unofficial service pack 5 while hes sick?

    Maybe someone can make a unofficial service pack 6!

    Also one more thing if I modify any SP5 files with upgrades how do I input it into a SP Installer, or even how do I make a service pack installer.

  13. Well while i'm waiting I have tried to modify the SP5 myself (just for me not and for anybody else).

    it also seems like a lot of updates you just copy and replace the file in SP5 so modification is very easy.

    I think I had 8 updates left to integrate so after my little modification I only needed to install 4 hotfixes left. I actually did all 8 but I think 4 needed registry entrees which I didn't know what to do.

    I am not trying to take anyones place i'm just tired of waiting so I puted the updates and added the Update references into the update.inf to install more hotfixes.

    That way hotfixes don't get messy and I don't have all these errors.

    Sorry I just couldn't wait anymore.

  14. Since nobody has made a remove Workstation update pack I want to remove it manually.

    So what file contains Workstation, Computer Browser, and Distributed File System.

    I found the solution. We need to tell this to nuhi the creator of nLite so that person would know that you Can Remove Workstation, and computer browser.

    I can't upload the attachment or post the code but It can be done. Instead I will post what you need to find in the HIVESYS.INF then delete it:

    find this (I belive it's line 3159):
    HKLM,"SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Linkage","Route",0x00010002,"""NetBT"" ""Tcpip"" ""{54C7D140-09EF-11D1-B25A-F5FE627ED95E}"""
    HKLM,"SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\networkprovider","Name",0x00000002,"Microsoft Windows Network"

    and delete it

    find this (I belive it's line 521):


    and delete it

    find this (I belive it's line 87):


    and delete it

    find this (I belive it's line 83):


    and delete it

    find this (I belive it's line 2572):


    insert this code in it's place:


    It's like a MOD.

    EDIT: changed to codebox -tain

  15. I used nLite to remove components. I got rid of NWlink and now Workstation won't work.

    Theres no problems with my network, and I can access the net still. Even when Workstation won't run. I don't need it. Also NACS said to disable Workstation. (NACS is National Academic Computer Security)

    Also this nLited disk is a server disk so it might as well be better to remove, or supress Workstation, Computer Browser, and Distirbuted File System.

    The only problems are errors in Event Viewer that's all. Since Workstation service won't run why can't I just remove it since it doesn't effect my server at all?

  16. I thought I heard (not sure if it's true or not) that WGA is required and some other stuff to get Windows Defender Beta2 Installation to work. If I have to install spyware to get a antivirus no way.

    There was something else which was weird. I went to walmart and Microsoft Onecare is for sale and guess what they included "Antispyware". So maybe they want us to purchase OneCare by forcing WGA so if we don't want it we will have to pay for OneCare.

  17. I tried the remove components update packs on Windows 200 Adv. Server and it worked fine so no problems with the Remove Programs Update Packs. Or at least if your talking about RyamVMs update packs.

    If it's another remove software I will give that a try and see if it works. If it does you can say it's for 2000 and XP only.

    Also another report. Great News Webmadman is unbanned. They must have made a error. We all make errors sometimes.

    Heres a saying from me "If Any human makes no mistakes even in making Operating Systems there would be no need for corrections, and security updates"

    Also is there any way to disable, remove, or supress Computer Browser, Workstation and Distributed File System. They are causing me problems because they are whining (exageration) I removed a vunerable software called "NetWare" I removed a vunerable software called "NetWare" Alert! Alert!. WHat really happened is I just got 3 errors saying

    Computer Browser can't function without Workstation

    Distributed File System can't function without Workstation

    Workstation can't function(No reason this time)

    Is there any workaround, or any nlite, HFSLIP, or any way to stop Computer Browser, Workstation and Distributed File System?

  18. I need some more help.

    I am not trying to be rude but WebMadman got banned and all his messages no longer contain the site.

    Can anyone post a link to RyanVMs forum with the Remove Component update packs for RVM Integrator. Please! :(

    Still thank you WebMadman but please keep the links there for other members. just post the smiley after I said thank you?

    Also Mods, and the Admin why can't we cache, or archive these forums so less people have to ask questions which reduces support work.

  19. What about sysocmgr.exe. Is there a way to use that to bring back Components Wizard or maybe I could get all the components entries and just install the components without the Components Wizard.

    You know like when Windows is installed on my Virtual PC just do a comand like sysocmgr write into sysoc.txt then take the information and import it into the sysoc.inf, WINNT.SIF, or Unattanded.txt
