  1. Hi all,

    i'm using the latest stable HFSLIP version 1.7.8 and the 4th timeszoneupdate.

    I'm facing an strange issue with XP PRO SP3 (Gold source + slipstreamed SP3) and the latest july fixes.

    Everything is ok with hf integration but i'm using sysprep to rescell my installs, and when the setup ask me to choose my time zone, the list is empty :


    i checked the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Time Zones" reg key, it's populated with all time zones.

    Can i check something else ?

    Thanks in advance


    1. KB951072 is not listed either by msba or ms/win update.

    2. Currently testing on a Rebuild iso without TZ4 addon and adding the latest KB951072 to HFSVCPACK_SW1 it's working

    -> TZVersion Upgraded To "5" with KB951072, joined a reg export from "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Time Zones" if this can help updating the add-on :)

    Again thanks for the hard work :)


  2. I figured out how to get multiple Win PE 2.0 WIMs in the menu with help from the posting here:


    This is what I ended up with:

    Rem Creates BCD (boot configuration data) for Windows 2003 - PE 2.0 DVD
    set bcdedit=D:\multiboot\boot\bcdedit
    set BCD-File=D:\multiboot\boot\bcd
    del %BCD-File%
    %bcdedit% /createstore %BCD-File%
    %bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /create {ramdiskoptions} /d "Ramdisk options"
    %bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /set {ramdiskoptions} ramdisksdidevice boot
    %bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /set {ramdiskoptions} ramdisksdipath \boot\boot.sdi

    set A=Windows 2003 R2 - Standard Edition - Automated Install
    set B=Windows 2003 R2 - Standard Edition - Manual install
    set C=Windows 2003 R2 - Standard Edition EVAL License - Automated Install
    set D=Hardware Setup (Windows PE)
    set E=Quick Restore (Windows PE)

    for /f "tokens=1-3" %%a in ('%bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /create /application OSLOADER /d "%A%"') do set guida=%%c
    %bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /set %guida% device boot
    %bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /set %guida% path \STDO\SETUPLDR.BIN
    %bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /set %guida% DESCRIPTION "%A%"

    for /f "tokens=1-3" %%a in ('%bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /create /application OSLOADER /d "%B%"') do set guidb=%%c
    %bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /set %guidb% device boot
    %bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /set %guidb% path \STDO\SETUPLDR.BIN
    %bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /set %guidb% DESCRIPTION "%B%"

    for /f "tokens=1-3" %%a in ('%bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /create /application OSLOADER /d "%C%"') do set guidc=%%c
    %bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /set %guidc% device boot
    %bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /set %guidc% path \STDO\SETUPLDR.BIN
    %bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /set %guidc% DESCRIPTION "%C%"

    for /f "tokens=1-3" %%a in ('%bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /create /d "%D%" /application osloader') do set guidd=%%c
    %bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /set %guidd% systemroot \Windows
    %bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /set %guidd% detecthal Yes
    %bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /set %guidd% winpe Yes
    %bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /set %guidd% osdevice ramdisk=[boot]\sources\hwsetup.wim,{ramdiskoptions}
    %bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /set %guidd% device ramdisk=[boot]\sources\hwsetup.wim,{ramdiskoptions}

    for /f "tokens=1-3" %%a in ('%bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /create /d "%E%" /application osloader') do set guide=%%c
    %bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /set %guide% systemroot \Windows
    %bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /set %guide% detecthal Yes
    %bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /set %guide% winpe Yes
    %bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /set %guide% osdevice ramdisk=[boot]\sources\restore.wim,{ramdiskoptions}
    %bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /set %guide% device ramdisk=[boot]\sources\restore.wim,{ramdiskoptions}

    %bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /create {bootmgr} /d "Windows Vista Bootloader"
    :: %bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /set {bootmgr} timeout 30
    %bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /set {bootmgr} displayorder %guida% %guidb% %guidc% %guidd% %guide%
    %bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /enum all

    cdimage.exe -lMultiBoot_Test -u1 -e -oi -m -h -bD:\multiboot\boot\etfsboot.com D:\multiboot "multiboot_test.iso"

    Now everything works nicely. :thumbup

    Thansk for the script :)

    for me it reports errors on the

     [b]for /f "tokens=1-3" %%a in ('%bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /create /d "%D%" /application osloader') do set guidd=%%c[/b]

    Lines, i've modded them to :

    for /f "[i][b]tokens=2[/b][/i]" %%a in ('%bcdedit% /store %BCD-File% /create /d "%D%" /application osloader') do set guidd=[b]%%[i]a[/i][/b]

    I'm using a french bcdedit version :)

  3. Hi all

    i just got the latest OEM Build of XP PRO

    it includes an hotfix in the SVCPACK Folder : KB911164.EXE

    If you place it in your HF folder naming it WindowsXP-KB911164.EXE HFSlip takes are of it :)

    it updates those files








    edit: Old hotfix used with IE6 so... don't bother :)

    SP2c works without issue

  4. Heres the DVD layout :

    |-\boot\fonts\ some ttf files
    |-\FILES\Install\i\pictures used by html files fro the -\FILES\Install folder
    |-\REDISTR\dotnetfx.exe -> IExpress package for .net v2.0.50727
    |-\SVR_2003\ folder containing 2003 "root" SVR Files (win51, win51il, win51il.sp2)
    |-\WHS\ containing specific WHS files, copied during setup to hard drive
    |-\windows\system32\qs.exe <- WHS GUI setup
    |-\windows\system32\winpeshl.ini <- containing a [LanchApp] section pointing to qs.exe above

    There's an SP2.cab & SP2.CAT in the |-\SVR_2003\i386 folder

    Not CAT Files included in the KB.EXE, just _sfx_XXXXX._p files, _sfx_.dll, _sfx_manifest_ file containing no referecen to a cat file

    Each KB.EXE contains also an update folder + an update.ver file

    let me know if you want something else

  5. Hi all,

    just wondering if HFSLIP can support this specific version of Windows Server.

    It's a 2003 server SP2 source with some files in SVR_2003\i386\svcpack :









    here's the content of the svcpack.inf stored as svcpack.in_:

    Signature="$Windows NT$"


    KB937108-v2.exe -u -z -q
    KB936598-v2.exe -u -z -q
    KB937253-v2.exe -u -z -q
    KB937153-v2.exe -u -z -q

  6. I'm using KB913800 because if on my hfslip folder i use all the hotfixes present in my hfslip.log exepct this one, ms update show me this hotfix isn't installed.

    Running 70821a atm, thanks

    Edit :

    I've re-run 70821a without KB913800, not more complain about EasyCDBlock.inf, after a sysprep, ms update doesn't complain about missing KB913800

    But it still shows KB912024 as not installed.

    thanks for the real time support ^^

  7. Hi all,

    I'm using the latest stable version to build XP PRO and HOME ISOs sucessfully with all hotfixes included (Ms Update says no critical and no recommanded update are missing)

    But with an MCE 2005 source, i've included all specific MCE2005 updates, including WindowsXP-KB912024-v2-x86-FRA.exe but ms update says it's missing.

    KB912024.CAT is present in SOURCESS\SVCPACK and listed in SVCPACK.INF.

    Edit : after using sysprep, I've got an error " Advanced INF Install" Unable to find C:\Windows\INF\EasyCDBlock.inf.

    it seems HFLSIP renames it to ezcdblck.inf

    here's my hfslip.log and WU1.TXT.

    Any help appreciated :)


  8. Hi, while we are on the Alternate input folders subject, is use the following HFSLIP structure :

    A root hfslip folder.

    3 sources folder (XP PRO, XP HOME, XP MCE)

    and for each source i use different files in HFSVCPACK, HFGUIRUNONCE, FIX, HFCABS, and different parameter in HFANSWER.INI (basicly ISONAME and ISOTITLE and INSTALLRC)

    I actually use to run a batch file that :

    rename my source folder (for example "XP_PRO") to "SOURCE",

    modifies the content of HFANSWER.INI.

    and run HFSLIP usign the altdir feature

    It will be great if the Alternate input folders fonction in hfslip authorize to use different sources, HFCLEANUP, and hfanwer.ini as it already authorize FIX, HFSVCPACK, HFSVCPACK_SW, HFEXPERT and HFGUIRUNONCE folders.

    If you add for example a "Source=" parameter in HFANSWER.ini and permit hfslip to read an ALTDIR1\HFANSWEROVVERIDE.INI if "ALTDIR1" is typed at the prompt this can allow hflsip to read/override defaut HFANSWER.ini parameter for that special ALTDIR folder.

    At the prompt we can so type ALDIR1 SOURCE1 for example to use thoses source and alt folders.

    let me know if you wan me to test anything :whistle: and thanks again for that great script !

  9. Hello,

    the workaround i found is to create an SFX and place it in \HFSVCPACK:

    it contains 2 files :



    witch can be found in %windir%\INF on a system with WMP11 already installed.

    below is the Winrar-SFX parameters i use for this file:


    this way, it includes the missing files in windows\inf, and after the sysprep, WMP11 no more complains about the inf file :)

    let me know if you want my sfx file

    btw, the same issue existed with WMP10

  10. @EmRoD

    Are you talking about LegitCheckControl.cab? What's COA?

    COA : Certificate Of Authenticity

    On feb 21 ms released a new KB905474 Version (1.7.017) with the WGA Tray in it again.

    My HFSLIPPED souces includes an old legitcheckcontrol.cab (1.5.0708)

    I install my computer with my product key, when it's done i activate it without issues.

    I run Ms update, it tells me a new KB905474 is available, i download it, install it and i'm having a error message saying that the tool cannot validate my licence :blink: .

    I look on the troubleshooting link, it routes me to this page http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/813422

    The instructions a "run a couple of regsvr32 commands to re register some dlls."

    When i'm done with it, ms update validates my licence and everything functions normally...

  11. Hi all

    with an hfslipped souce (version hfslip-70212b.cmd) and XP Home Or Pro i'm facing this bug with the lateste WGA thing...

    I'm using my COA, activate it without issue BUT

    when the lateste WGA is installed via windows update, i'm having an error message saying my copie cannot be validated...

    when i follow the instructions given by thi page :


    that is, to re-register some dlls it works:

    regsvr32 /S softpub.dll

    regsvr32 /S Wintrust.dll

    regsvr32 /S Dssenh.dll

    regsvr32 /S Rsaenh.dll

    regsvr32 /S Gpkcsp.dll

    regsvr32 /S Sccbase.dll

    regsvr32 /S Slbcsp.dll

    regsvr32 /S Mssip32.dll

    regsvr32 /S Cryptdlg.dll

    regsvr32 /S Initpki.dll

    Any clues ?

  12. Hi all,

    any chance in having Branding.cab supported again for IE7 as IE7 is "recompiled" for updates ?

    I'd also ask for an update in the ALTDIR folders, can you inclue a function to have different files/folder in HF :

    I'm building CDs for XP Pro and XP Home.

    XP Home has issues with WMP11, witch make me have to remove \WMP11 and WindowsXP-KB898543-v3-x86-ENU.exe from the HF folder and add mp10setup.exe, HMTCDWizard_FRA.exe, windowsmedia10-kb902344-x86-intl.exe, WindowsMedia10-KB917734-x86-FRA.exe, WindowsMedia-KB891122-x86-FRA.exe, WindowsXP-KB923689-x86-FRA.exe Into HF.

    Can ou include a exclusion/remplace list/function for the HF folder . (Currently i've build an HF Common folder, along with HFWMP11 an HFWMP10 and a batch file that copies/replace file in the HF folder)

    Thanks in advance.
