  1. i think its something wrong with the drivers, how can i chk if drivers are OEM etc? drivers from http://www.driverpacks.net/DriverPacks/DriverPack.php?pag=m anyone tried with sysprep?
  2. zzz... i still get the same error, that build mass storage section still makes the same list of stuff as "sysprep -bmsd" so guess it didn't help too much... u had this error b4? or any1 else? and how do i fix this? Microsoft says its becos of errors in MassStorage section but i didn't edit it myself! http://support.microsoft.com/kb/249690 a little quote To troubleshoot this issue, check the following: 1. Check the PnpIDs left of the equal sign (=) to make sure they match the PnpIDs listed right of the corresponding equal sign. 2. Check the spelling of each corresponding .inf file right of the equal sign. 3. If the controller is supplied by an OEM, make sure the path to the .inf file is correct, the description field matches what is included in the Txtsetup.oem file, and the disk tag and ID match. i got some drivers from http://www.driverpacks.net/DriverPacks/ should be ok right? does OEM drivers create this problem? i got mainly the LAN, MassStorage & Sound drivers so that the image can be as Universal as possible, i have also compiled drivers from my own PCs. mmm... a little of the mass storage section > pci\ven_8086&dev_2662=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf pci\ven_8086&dev_2664=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf pci\ven_8086&dev_2666=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf *int0800=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf pci\ven_8086&dev_0008=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf pci\ven_8086&dev_0326=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf pci\ven_1033&dev_00a9&cc_0600=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf pci\ven_1033&dev_00aa&cc_0500=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf pci\ven_1033&dev_00ab&subsys_00ab1033=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf pci\ven_1033&dev_00ac&cc_0600=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf pci\ven_1033&dev_00ad&cc_0600=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf pci\ven_1033&dev_00ae&cc_0600=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf pci\ven_1033&dev_00af=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf pci\ven_1033&dev_00b0=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf pci\ven_1033&dev_00b1&cc_0600=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf *pnp0a00=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf *pnp0a01=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf *pnp0a04=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf *pnp0a03=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf pci\cc_0604=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf pci\cc_0601=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf pci\cc_0602=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf pci\cc_0600=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf *pnp0c0e=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf *pnp0c15=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf acpi\dockdevice=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf acpi\dockdevice&_sb_.pci_.oak_=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf acpi\dockdevice&_sb_.pci_.isa_.slce=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf acpi\fixedbutton=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf acpi\thermalzone=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf isapnp\readdataport=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf pci\ven_10aa&dev_0000=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf pci\ven_1025&dev_1435=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf pci\ven_10b9&dev_1445=c:\windows\inf\machine.inf looks ok right? but whats those with the "*" in front?
  3. thanks, but i still get cannot update registry? i am doing it in VMware doesn't make a difference right? i also have used Sysprep Driver Scanner to add tthe driver links to te registry successfully sysprep -bmsd shouldn't create any wrong things right? but if i delete the whole mass storage section it works by the way, what switches should i use? i read that sysprep -reseal -mini -reboot is enough somewhere. but i ddn't use reboot, will reboot restart the comp or shutdown (which is what i would want)? also what does -nosidgen -activated -pnp do? do i need them?
  4. i am following "Art of OEM" guide here doing the after gathering all drivers, building mass storage section with "sysprep -bmsd " and running sysprep i get something like cannot update regisry y is this so? i read on Microsoft that its likely to be problems with mass storage section but i didn't edit it. EDIT: see attached file also after running setupmgr, the sysprep.inf i get is ;SetupMgrTag [Unattended] OemSkipEula=Yes InstallFilesPath=C:\sysprep\i386 [GuiUnattended] AdminPassword=* EncryptedAdminPassword=NO OEMSkipRegional=1 TimeZone=215 OemSkipWelcome=1 [UserData] ProductKey=XXX FullName="XXX" OrgName="" ComputerName=* [RegionalSettings] LanguageGroup=10,9 [SetupMgr] DistFolder=C:\sysprep\i386 DistShare=windist [GuiRunOnce] Command0="cmd /c "rd %SystemDrive%\$WINDOWS.~BT /s /q"" Command1="cmd /c "rd %SystemDrive%\$WINDOWS.~LS /s /q" [Identification] JoinWorkgroup=XXX [Networking] InstallDefaultComponents=Yes so is "InstallFilesPath=C:\sysprep\i386" not "InstallFilesPath="C:\WINDOWS\Driver Cache\i386"" as in the guide which is correct? also the guide's [SetupMgr] DistFolder="C:\WINDOWS\Driver Cache\i386" DistShare=windist vs mine [SetupMgr] DistFolder=C:\sysprep\i386 DistShare=windist Removed attachment - be sure to remove product keys before posting answer files.
  5. i have a question do i copy the whole folder from \Distribution\Out-of-Box Drivers or do i need to cab it? << if i do it this way i do not need to integrate with nLite right? Thanks --- EDIT --- also i am supposed to add this, so InstallFilesPath="C:\WINDOWS\Driver Cache\i386" will take care of drivers install right? ;SetupMgrTag [Unattended] InstallFilesPath="C:\WINDOWS\Driver Cache\i386" OemSkipEula=Yes DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore UpdateInstalledDrivers=Yes [GuiUnattended] EncryptedAdminPassword=NO AutoLogon=Yes AutoLogonCount=0 OEMSkipRegional=1 OEMDuplicatorstring="Windows Home Server" [UserData] ProductKey=?????-?????-?????-?????-?????

  6. i have been reading many tutorials on sysprep and Wim like Art of OEM here, but still quite lost on how to start, ok i am trying to do Art of OEM right now but maybe it will help if there is a video tutorial somewhere? ok an to clarify, 1) use nLite to customize 2) install on VMware 3) Sysprep << is it after install?? and does it take care of activation/CD key entry/languages etc? does it affect nLite's Unattended? 4) WIM image it? << how to? using ximage something likedat? i read a guide somewhere here by iceman(not too sure if its right name) but i still need to modify somethings to make the image universal right? ------ EDIT ------- oh ya and i need some driver packs right? mmm http://www.driverpacks.net/DriverPacks/ good? they wont corrupt installs as long as i dont mix x86 with x64? by the way isn't Intel E6600 x64? y does my XP say x86? << i guess i can still install x86 Xp on a x64 comp right? and the drivers will be according to the OS? and will different BIOS, different comps affect the process? also if i use DriverPacks, if i integrate all drivers of the driver pack using nLite/Other methods (sysprep also can isit? and how?) which is better?
  7. i am looking for a WIM tutorial so can any1 also help me? currently saw Art Of OEM... but y is there Hex editing all that? anyway ok anything else?
  8. but i found out most probably its Firefox. on a clean install XP (nothing installed) chkdsk = no problems, after installing Firefox and use it, the problems appear. seems like other ppl are having the same problems, do a chkdsk, did u do a chkdsk? on comps having Firefox? http://www.hardwareforums.com/hdd-spoilt-s...808/#post124354 http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.ph...7e295cbbb6689e8
  9. i am trying to make an install of XP from a HDD, USB at first but since i think my external HDD adapter is not good, i plugged the HDD directly into the comp for now, making it internal... NTFS is so that the partition can be bigger (but it works). so install media is internal HDD (any diff to the process? for now it works, internally). Version of windows - XP Pro SP2 (nLited). number of partitions - 1 Main HDD, 3 NTFS partitions, on the "Temporary Internal" HDD, 2 NTFS partitions (1 for this, and another for Misc Storage) and so it means Read Only is for USB problems which i escaped using an internal HDD? i think... Thanks
  10. guess so... but about low level format & zero fill, aren't they the same?
  11. erm i didn't have a problem with windows formated NTFS. so i did not use HP Format Utility (or is it because i am using a internal HDD?) This way the default entry is GUI mode, TXT mode must be selected manually. With these GUI entries XP can be installed and booted later from another partition on the hard drive, not only from the first. for me the text mode works but the GUI didn't... the screen flashed and i am back to OS Selection... why is this so? i think is the last line? what does it does? "chainloader +1" and is there a GRUB4DOS documentation/manual? after it's finished restore BOOT.INI whats this for? why do i need to backup boot.ini? and below? whats it for? edit WINNT.SIF & MIGRATE.INF. its for the Read-Only? but why read only for? and also this seem to remove my nLite unattended stuff?
  12. discovered something new! on a clean XP install = no problems on this clean install, install Firefox = no problems use firefox = MFT problems appear surf, i think so that cache fills = deleting indexes... do u ppl using firefox have this problem also? on another comp, with Firefox installed also i also have the same problem
  13. this is the last chkdsk... after a clean install of XP (which is fine when i first do chkdsk with no progs). then after installing progs... i do 1 more and get The type of the file system is NTFS. Volume label is WINDOWS. WARNING! F parameter not specified. Running CHKDSK in read-only mode. CHKDSK is verifying files (stage 1 of 3)... File verification completed.

  14. i want to clean my HDD, b4 i do a clean install... so do u ppl think a low level format will be better that a regular 1? it slow though and which low level format tool do u use? i used DBAN b4. any better/safer ones? this one has a warning that if any probs ... etc. and Norton Partition Magic's "Secure Erase" is not a low level? and Windows non-"quick" format ... whats the diff actually?
  15. hey found out something! when i restore this Acronis Image on another partition (E:\), the same thing happens! but ONLY when the XP is loaded, when i do a scan disk on the original corrupt XP (C:\) (i restored my Acronis Image on another partition w/o touching the original), no errors! so i can conclude that if i reinstall every thing from scratch, there shouldn't be a problem? and do u think that its the acronis image got corrupt after it was made? cos i did a validate archive wo issues. but i think b4 i create the image, there didn't seem o have any problems with the HDD...
  16. so it means if i do a format its likely to solve the problem? for your info, this is fixed from a once unbootable partition, marked as BAD in Partition Magic (so refuses to resize/delete/format until i did a /ipe switch in partition magic) but fixed using a low level format - dunno if this didn't really fix it... mmm ... dont mind formatting but my brother does. i am wiping out his files
  17. now when i do a chkdsk n BartPE, no errors but in XP there is... i dunno if i restart and do 1 in Bart will 1 appear but... is it XP starting can cause problems with scandisk? i did a SMART check in BIOS which gives no errors (what HP told me to do) - what does it checks actually? the HDD indicators dont blink. will a format be just a short term solution? cos if the "Bad" part is not used, no errors will appear right?
  18. ok... ran chkdsk in BartPE until no errors, but when i go in Windows and chkdsk, errors appeared again, and in BartPE also, then fix > no probs (in BartPE) then in Windows again! its a loop! by the way, i also tried fixmbr & fixboot (in Windows Recovery Console) didn't fix anything also but fixmbr seems to always report a "non-standard MBR" even after a fixmbr Thanks
  19. i don't have a "Autochk in the Source column." but i'll try chkdsk in BartPE, for now i get: but is this a Hardware prob (HDD spoilt)? cos i still has warranty from HP, its a new comp. but if its caused but my own prob/i can fix it myself, then i rather do it myself warranty need to take some days ...
  20. is there any good software that can verify folders & files? like MD5 checksums? i found this while googling: http://vdata.ed-s-software.qarchive.org/ but i think the MD5, ... will they allow me to verify folders? i think most checks for single file isit?
  21. i seem to get this error alot? is it because my XP is corrupt? other that this error, my XP is ok... oh and its Nlited dunno if i did something wrong. this error seems to be triggered by only somethings, RealPlayer, QuickTime, Microsoft Word 2007, Flash Projectors
  22. not those actually, its a HDD adapter i just got... a IDE/SATA to USB adapter... i plugged the HDD into the motherboard and all works fine now
  23. now i am using COMODO Firewall + Avast, but seem to have problems with some things like opening some things - like flash projectors (from autorun) i think. gives msg asking me if i want to debug in Visual Studio. but not sure if its because of it but anyway is kaspersky Internet security 7 good?
