  1. i tried that b4, it still didn't work... but i think after taking soo long of removing chunks of lines, i think the problem is caused by detectedpci\fd ... ^ no "\" YA IT IS... after so long... but anyone knows why would an automated sysprep -bmsd make such errors?
  2. i still get what can i do to debug? commenting lines under SysprepMassStorage? is there a multi line comment symbol? rather than commenting 1 by 1?
  3. mmm... i am using nLite 1.4.1 and still having this error ... after sysprep also anything i need to remove or keep? if i click cancel, it still works ops i didnt read the last few posts yet? but can some1 tell me what actually needs to be done? abit lazy
  4. so it seems C programming and ASM are used widely... ASM u guys mean from http://asm.objectweb.org/? nv heard of that b4 ... but from there it seems to be java, or made from java?
  5. i seem to have problems using driver packs from DriverPack.net with sysprep. i read in the Creating WIM images of Windows XP for system deployment using Windows PE i suspect its the same problem but the DriverPack version is not 7.121 now so is there a work around to this? any program to see the details of the driver? like for what platform and OS the driver is for? i was thinking maybe i can use DriverPack BASE to slipstream drivers into a XP install then use these integrated drivers for sysprep? something like that? so where can the integrated DriverPack drivers found? SOLUTION detectedpci... ^ missing "\" pci\ven_104b&dev_1040=c:\windows\driver cache\i386\massstorage\d\m\vm\vmscsi.inf ^ space so add "" quotes
  6. i know of 1 software that can "color" my folder icons for me: http://icolorfolder.sourceforge.net/ but anyone know of more, like how can i color the labels? this software only applies to folders (icons)... but its good tho.
  7. oh that bad, i was testing using VMware, VirtualPC and thought i was doing something wrong that didn't allow me to boot from USB... zzz
  8. i see more and more ppl here labeled as software developers, and was wondering what language do they use? stuff like nLite, XPize and others? then in the industry, what language is most used? just wondering... still schooling, and wondering what language should i be learning next time
  9. hmm... abit better. what i tried to ask has been answered by u, i think. maybe i just don't quite get the whole picture. after my exams i'll try to read the historical thread then see if i can understand it. what i am asking is actually, since the install from HDD process looks the same (speed, once files are copied, and procedures), text mode then proceeds to GUI, i am wondering why do i need to make local source. is there a way to run the text mode install without the makelocalsource? because i was wondering since running from CD, it can somehow boot and install, from I386 u say, i was thinking why is make local source needed. but i think what u answered makes sense. for HDD boot i need the ~BT for booting maybe. but i am sure CD needs a booting folder/file some where? i can't just use that? maybe the boot process is different? and 1 more thing, an install from CD will still make Local Source in the install partition? or is local source designed for booting from HDD only? don't think so right? cos if thats the case, one would not need to hack and all to make the install work? i got this idea because i think the ~BT and ~LS folders will be deleted after GUI setup? so its like temp folders? sorry quite bad at explanations, and after so many questions i cant get u people. but u people are professional system admins i guess?
  10. Why do i need to makelocalsource actually? since to me, the localsource setup looks the same as one without(from a regular CD). and the speed seems the same too. does making localsource makes the process faster or maybe without localsource i do not have the necessary files? err... quite embarrassed , i seem to be asking too much... lol but i think i just want to understand what i am doing better rather than using automated scripts not understanding what is done. but the script make things really alot easier. 1 day after my exams, abt 2 weeks from now i think i try to read the historical thread... 25 pages 486 posts. if someone have got too much time can extend the guide with some references on what does the steps actually do? but i guess its too much zzz exams... the education system seems to be flawed... many ppl just memorize for exams and forget them after exams. then whats the use of studying???
  11. err... what do u mean? i have done winnt32 /makelocalsource /noreboot /unattend:G:\WINXP\I386\winnt.sif then copied the txtsetup.sif, $WIN_NT$.~LS and $WIN_NT$.~BT folder to my USB HDD. correct? then because when i try booting and installing from this partition, the setup runs normally except it does not prompts me where (which partition) to install on. so it installs on my USB HDD. so to fix this i am supposed to remove the [unattend] section in WINNT.SIF? from my previous quote?
  12. i have a problem with my XP install not prompting me where, which partition, to install on. how do i fix this? i did it the manual way from Guide for MultiBoot USB-stick with boot.ini Menu except when creationg the localsource, i added /unattended:G:\WINXP\I386\winnt.sif for the unattended stuff created by nLite ---update--- oh maybe i found it http://www.msfn.org/board/boot-install-USB...html&st=199 but will it cause any difference? like it becomes not unattended? if so what does the [unattended] section actually do? how can it be so "unimportant" that i can just remove it like that? my unattended section [Unattended] UnattendMode=FullUnattended UnattendSwitch="Yes" OemPreinstall="Yes" OemSkipEula="Yes" FileSystem=* WaitForReboot="No" NoWaitAfterTextMode=1 NoWaitAfterGUIMode=1 DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore NonDriverSigningPolicy=Ignore unused=unused
  13. how do i add imagex to BartPE? --update--- anyone tried http://diddy.boot-land.net/pebuilder/imagex/imagex_1.htm? yup i think this link shld work building my BartPE now
  14. mmm did that but somehow its missing... maybe it didn't go into the wim... but nvm now when i start from step 5 then at step 9 i get C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools>peimg /prep D:\winpe_x86\mount\Window s /f Preinstallation Environment Image Setup Tool for Windows Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved. The image directory specified is a Windows PE image that was previously prepared with the /PREP command. PEIMG failed to complete the operation with status code 0x80070002. so i skip that step?
  15. actually after reading it quite a few times, i think i get it abit more. i think its not that it noob unfriendly but maybe its hard to explain... err but i think everyone will wish for a proper documentation for these things. esp. things like makeBS, mkbt.exe, BootSect.exe and GRUB4DOS. tho i think these are not their files or responsibilities i think? but i guess makeBS is by jaclaz
  16. i have tried the USB_MultiBoot2. it works most of the time except a few problems (minor ones) then PE2USB dont seem to allow me to select my WinPE2.0 folder... then since i am installing on a test partition my 3rd partition on my main hard disk, multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="2. GUI Mode Setup Windows XP, Continue Setup + Start XP" /FASTDETECT wont work, it shld be something like multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(3)\WINDOWS="2. GUI Mode Setup Windows XP, Continue Setup + Start XP" /FASTDETECT i guess, but this is a minor problem most ppl will install XP on the 1st partition but it'll be good if i can somehow change this entry. i noticed a few things. since i am testing, the install wipes out my old OS (main) entry from the boot.ini. such that my boot.ini (in C:) becomes [boot loader] timeout=1 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(3)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(3)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect this looks all right but it does not work... it gives me some error when booting... then i booted from the USB drive and selected the 2nd entry multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="2. GUI Mode Setup Windows XP, Continue Setup + Start XP" /FASTDETECT then it works, is the error because of the missing "/noexecute=optin /fastdetect" ? from the "default" line? and did u do something such that the timeout changes to 1? then i am just curious about somethings... since i am booting from a USB Thumbdrive, the C: will be the thumbdrive's 1st partition? not the C:\ where my WINDOWS is? i think since GRUB4DOS can do most of the work, or am i wrong, y not just use it? or is the .bs files used in boot.ini only? i remember u mentioned somewhere i can use something MakeBS or something like that to make these .bs files from SETUPLDR or BOOTMGR files isit? if i am thinking of doing one without so many things, for a start, so only XP install and WinPE, how shld i go abt doing it the manual way? i have done it b4 but i have forgotten many parts... 1) did a winnt32 /makelocalsource /noreboot /unattend:G:\XPPRO3\I386\winnt.sif (where G:\XPPRO3\I386\winnt.sif is the file created by nLite i suppose) 2) copy the folders $WIN_NT$.~BT and $WIN_NT$.~LS to my USB HDD/Thumbdrive XPPRO folder (where all my XP installation files are) then from here i forgot how to continue... so the GRUB4DOS/menu.lst parts... and maybe i need to copy SETUPLDR to the root and rename it or something? ---UPDATE--- i tried booting WinPE2.0 using the steps then it bust brings me to the boot.ini menu. what does this mean? -- err i guess i need the WinPE files in the root of the partition? then the XP SETUP fails showing an error that the txtsetup.sif is missing or corrupt. mine txtsetup.sif files are created by nLite that wont be a problem right? -- similarly, the $WIN_NT$.~BT and $WIN_NT$.~LS folers need to be in the root partition? can i have these files in folders? thanks
  17. i have a problem with PE2USB. it does not detects my USB HDD (nor eSATA < does it work with eSATA by the way?) will it destroy my other data in the HDD? in another partition? SOLVED --- i think i know why --- PE4USB cant handle partitions >2GB mine is 2.9GB
  18. is there a help for the USB_MultiBoot2.zip files? i dont quite get how to use it? oh i found it Help_USB_MultiBoot2.txt. but ya, its hard to understand... but i'll try maybe just tell us the key points. like when i get to the screen showing Prepares MultiBoot USB-Drive provided with Windows XP Setup LocalSource 0) Change Type of USB-Drive, currently [USB-stick] 1) Change XP Setup Source Path, currently [] 2) Change USB Content Source, currently [U_CONTENT] 3) Change USB-Drive Target, currently [] 4) Make MultiBoot USB-Drive and Copy XP and Content Source to USB-Drive F) Change Log File - Simple OR Extended, currently [Simple] Q) Quit what do i do? i am using a USB HDD so i change the 0) to USB HARDDISK right? then XP Setup source i use the folder where my XP Setup source is? (the result of nLite) then whats this "2) Change USB Content Source" ? and 3) Change USB-Drive Target is my USB HDD partition for this project? then i press 4 to make all these work right? and 1 question, why does FAT makes things faster?
  19. erm, i am using a USB HDD so does this apply? cos when i try using a thumbdrive, when i try a list disk, the thumbdrive does not show. in show volumes it shows so i can't get the next commands, clean etc. and also whill select disk then clean wipe out all data in the partition? which means i can't or at least need to backup all my data? and in all these guides, it says use FAT why is this so?
  20. err u mean that i have to find out whatever services i need? like imagex? i dont see imagex there did i? but anyway i'll try that. Good guide tho
  21. err did u miss out the part to add imagex? i get imagex is not a reconised ... batch/program error and i saw that i need to copy it from “C:\Program files\Windows AIK\Tools\x86\imagex.exe”? from http://technet2.microsoft.com/WindowsVista...3bc3fa1033.mspx 2. so now, do i need to redo every step to add this? i made a winpe_X86.iso already
  22. the question is in the title "HowTo Boot WinPE from USB HDD?" so i use something like GRUB4DOS? and how do i do that? like what do i have in the menu.lst file? and it will help if there is a reference on it (menu.lst) 1 thing i forgot how to do from last time... to boot install XP from USB HDD, i did a winnt32 /makelocalsource /noreboot (and if i want to use nLite's unattended settings how do i acheive that?) /unattended:D:\XPPRO\I386\WINNT.sif right? then the files from this will be created at C:\ and i need to copy them to my D:\XPPRO? < where all my setup files are.
  23. true, DDR3 now is super ex and if montevina does not support DDR2, it means that PCs based on it will be super ex, and so it means i cant buy it. but of course if it supports all the old stuff, which i feel is good enuf, and if its performance with these old components is better than the chipset now, santa rosa right, then it will be worth the wait. i had all along wanted to get a lappy, tot i can buy once 45nm is out, but now when its out, another new thing is out!
  24. just when i thought of buying a 45nm CPU in march, i found out that a new centrino montevina is coming out in May, or april, so ... anyone knows if its worth the wait? or will it be too expensive? cos i think it has things like DDR3 all that. and will there be much performance increase? or id santa rosa good enuf?
  25. i seem to noticed until now, there seem to be no 45nm intel chip laptops yet? will it be out by march when i am probably intending to get a laptop? in the US also not out yet? usually OEMs take that long to implement it?
