    nForce 730a (GeForce 8200) AHCI/RAID in XP 64

    It used to be possible with older versions of the drivers, I'm not sure if it's still possible with the latest versions. You might want to look at this topic, especially the last post - Gigabyte K8NS Pro (NVIDIA nForce3 250) https://msfn.org/board/topic/136807-xp-x64-driver-integration/
  2. Moved to RyanVM forums You can still ask questions here ======================================================= Some of you might also be interested in these similar guides for Windows 2000 or 98se. So you want to create fully up to date Windows XP Professional x64 edition installation media ? Well here's how (End of Life update, Feb 2016). There are a couple of options as to how to configure your install media, you can: . . A) Use Microsoft hotfixes or 5eraph's update packs . . B} Integrate IE8 or use 5eraph's IE8 AddOn or integrate IE7 or use IE6 . . C) Integrate WMP11 using Booogy's Slipstreamer or silent install WMP11 or use WMP10 . . D) Install .Net frameworks at a level of none, 2.0 SP2, 3.5 SP1 or 4.0 RtM This guide will list the files needed for the first option given and then note the changes required to use the other options. So you are going to need some files: From MediaFire, the Config_XP-64_date.7z file and extract it, this will also setup the necessary directory structure (read \Misc\FileList.txt for contents). Note on colour codes shown below and in the hotfix lists: % means that you must directly download this file yourself, it's either everchanging (Adobe Flash), an optional component, one of 5eraph's packs or simply huge (Service Pack 2, .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 and DirectX redist). @ means that the file is available in the 7-Zip archives hosted at MediaFire and as a part of the torent. # means that in order to save time (honest, it will take forever) and my bandwidth you should directly download this file but it's also in the torent. ▼ is a direct link to the executable Optional items and groups are described in green (as are their security updates), if you include them as directed then they will be installed From Microsoft you want: At \Misc\ % ▼ WindowsServer2003.WindowsXP-KB914961-SP2-x64-ENU.exe . 367,964,016 .

SHA-1: DBA96E4CA6F76BD0DD4CE83B2F2E5D69FFFA8289 To save on click fatigue 7-Zip archives are available of the smaller hotfixes (<6MB) at MediaFire (A only for 5eraph's packs, A+B+C for the Microsoft hotfixes method), extract them into the same directory that you chose to extract the Config archive into. The archives won't necessarily be updated every month, only when there are changes.

Due to my upload limitations it won't exactly be Speedy Gonzales (expect about 4KB/s, roughly 40 hours for full download), so you are recommended to download the larger hotfixes directly (mainly .Net patches). Run \Misc\UpdatePrep.bat before opening the Hotfix torent, this will remove any outdated hotfixes. 5eraph's packs users should disable the downloading of everything in the \Hotfix\ folder and the 8 items in the \XP64\RunOnce\ folder from post 3 of the lists. The torent is also useful for checking that you have all the downloads and that they aren't corrupted. It is important to note that the tracker's IP address is at least nominally dynamic (and I've been known to forget to launch it), so if you can't connect for more than a day or two PM me. The 7-Zip archives and torent also contain: \Misc\update.exe .. . 978,736 . patched to apply Server 2003 only hotfixes \Misc\ScreenShots\ . contains 21 photos of the process \Misc\SP2x32\ .. . . . contains files from the 32-bit version of Service Pack 2 for Windows Server 2003 TweakUI is a unofficial Microsoft powertoy that acts as a one stop shop for User Interface configuration. This is the (hard to find) x64 version, digitally signed though, unfortunately there are no silent install switches so it has been repacked. Grant Access - subinacl.msi is a command line utility meant for network administrators, but it can be useful to us mere mortals as it makes running as a limited user possible. Using the "Access *" shortcuts I only have to logon as the Administrator about once a fortnight. Since I started setting up my friend's computers this way I haven't had to deal with the "I cancelled a print job and now my printer is gone" (they deleted the printer) or "Why do I get all these annoying pop-ups" (opened Amazing_Photos.pps.vbs) type service calls. How many of us can truly say they have never clicked the wrong button or typed the wrong command? Remember, the neck you save might just be your own. Note as to format, the trailing number in italics is obviously file size while the leading number in the hotfix lists is to ensure that they are integrated in the same order that Windows Update would install them. The gaps in number are so that any future changes can be inserted into the hotfix torent without requiring name changes, re-ordering or re-downloading files. Whether or not you prefer to directly download all the hotfixes, UpdatePrep.bat will rename the files as appropriate. If you've chosen to include all the optionals \Hotfix\ should have 155 files 375,536,032, \WMP11\ should have 12 files 49,085,768 and \XP64\RunOnce\ should have 61 (ex flash) or 53 files 1,007,777,402 or 984,656,457. Of course you won't get very far without nLite, Boooggy's WMP11 slipstreamer and a Windows XP pro x64 install CD. Now it's time to fire up nLite Note that nLite must be run with administrator privileges, you might need to disable anti-virus software and most importantly, slipstreaming Service Pack 2 must be done on a Win NT 5.x host (2000/XP/XPx64/2003/2003x64). It may be worthwhile to do a pass where you only slipstream SP2 and then burn an .iso, thereby obtaining a clean XP x64 sp2 source disk as a base. There are screenshots available of the process at MediaFire. Run Misc\UpdatePrep.bat Locate your source. If working from a SP1 source slipstream service pack 2 then exit nLite (if nLite is open it can interfere with the WMP11 slipstreamer). Special note for users of 32-bit operating systems. You cannot slipstream Service Pack 2 as is (due to it being a 64-bit executable), instead you must do the following: First check that the files in your nLite working directory do NOT have their Read-Only attribute set, if so clear it. Extract WindowsServer2003.WindowsXP-KB914961-SP2-x64-ENU.exe with 7-Zip or WinRAR. Copy the files from \Misc\SP2x32\ into the \AMD64\Update\ folder of the extracted x64 Service Pack 2, replacing the existing files. nLite will warn that you cannot integrate 64-bit service packs from within a 32-bit environment, proceed anyway (just say no). Finally when integrating the Service Pack you need to navigate to the \AMD64\Update\ folder and select the Update.exe file. Whoa there Tex, it's time to get down and Boooggy. The WMP11 slipstreamer is fairly self explanatory, just target your working directory, the WMP11 install file and the 11 hotfixes in the \WMP11\ directory, then hit the integrate button. If you are planning to experiment, now is the time to backup your working directory. Then it's time to fire up nLite again (my session file is located at \Misc\, you may wish use it as a base). Add all the hotfixes listed in the \Hotfix\ directory, maintaining the order. 32-bit users: Check that UpdatePrep.bat has moved the following hotfixes to the \XP64\RunOnce\ directory (020, 036, 064, 100, 116, 156, 192, 392, 404, 416, 460, 484, 608, 940). 5eraph's packs users: Post SP2 update pack then IE8 addon then EoS Delta addon then IE8 tweaks. Add any drivers you may need, especially textmode SATA & RAID drivers (Intel, nVidia). I've found that 7-Zip will extract some things WinRAR won't (case studies incl ATI vid). Unattended settings, this is the most important one. Your RunOnce file should look like this: TimeOut /T 60For %%I in (Z Y X W V U T S R Q P O N M L K J I H G F E D) do if exist %%I:\XP64\Run1.bat set Drive=%%I&& goto Found:FoundCMD /R "%Drive%:\XP64\Run1.bat %Drive%" You should also set it to autologon twice to an administrator class account (read the note), fully automated mode would be an excellent idea Smithers. The TimeOut is to avoid a "Device not Ready" error. If you need to load drivers from a floppy then read the note on the general tab about OEM Preinstall. Make any tweaks you want, then run the process. Copy the \XP64\ folder and all its contents to either your nLite working directory or a USB flash drive (\XP64\AddOns\ contains optional files). After you drag n drop anything else that you may want / need, go ahead and burn that image / DVD. Installation: Ensure the PC is disconnected from the internet then insert the DVD (or DVD + USB flash drive) and boot to the install media following the usual textmode steps. If you have gone for the fully unattended option, then all you have to do is let it be for roughly 4 hours (assuming lots of AddOns), if you get a "no disk" message just "continue". The system will be ready for use when a logon box is waiting for your input. The only high priority download available will be the "Malicious Software Removal Tool" (none if using 5eraph's packs). If at all possible use a parallel IDE attached DVD drive as SATA drives have been known to result in install errors in some cases. Application AddOns: (do not place multiple versions of the same application in \XP\AddOns) nLite supports the use of application addon .cab files at the hotfix integration step, however I do not recommend their use as the file associations don't register with XP x64 (OK with x86 Windows). You should instead edit \XP64\Run1.bat or \XP64\Run2.bat to call the standard enduser installer with the appropriate silent install switches. Currently the following applications will be installed if they are copied to \XP64\AddOns\, unless otherwise noted they will work with minimal rights (guest account) and maximum DEP (Always-On): ε=EMET protected ..

VMware Tools, requires 7-Zip (seeing a pattern?) It should be obvious, but installing these applications is completely optional, for instance there is very little point in installing 3 different PDF readers. Another possibility is to strip the actual executable out of the various AddOns created by others (copying the file to \XP64\Addons\) and then adding the appropriate command to the batch files. The executables have usually been repacked as silent installers, but be sure to read the entries*.ini file to confirm this. If you don't intend to include any of these applications (vanilla install disk), then you only need to autologon once at step 8 (don't copy \XP64\Run2.bat across at step 10). You can have as many application install reboot passes as desired. To do this simply set the system to auto-logon (in step 8) as many times as required and place the appropriate number of batch files in the \XP64\ directory of your install media. The first 5 batch files are already written (at \Misc\) with the needed handover command, but if you need more they are fairly self explanatory. Be sure to install security software last. Comodo Firewall: The latest version installer doesn't support install switches, breaks Deamon Tools and has the "modern" UI so you should use the older version 5.12 x64 .msi installer which has a fairly extensive list of pre-approved applications (which you may not want) or the last of the 3.x x64 series with a very basic push-the-buttons AutoIt script. Testing: I use VirtualBox for testing purposes, highly configurable regarding choice of emulated hardware and also good for virtualizing Linux (some tricks needed for Windows 98se), however hardware virtualization support is required for 64-bit guests (AMD-V or VT-x). VirtualBox hints: Silent installation of Virtual Machine extensions is supported, once VirtualBox is installed there will be a file "VBoxGuestAdditions.iso" at "\Program Files\[sun|Oracle]\VirtualBox\", copy it to \XP64\AddOns\ on your install media (requires 7-Zip). To install VirtualBox's experimental Direct 3D support copy VBoxGuestAdditions.iso to \XP64\ instead (where the Run1.bat file is) and increase the number of automatic logins (at step 8) by one. This allows some games to work (Doom 3 for example) but also causes some minor glitches (YouTube doesn't work with Internet Explorer for one). On the System settings page leave I/O APIC and VT-x/AMD-V enabled (default settings). Other options are VMware Server 1.0.10 (Vista-) or VMware Player 12 (Win7x64+), they're also free but have some limitations. VMware Server also requires registration and has no default sound but importantly can virtualize 64-bit guests on some CPUs that don't have hardware virtualization capabilities (early Turions for instance). Before downloading and installing, use this tool to ensure that your processor will support 64-bit guests. VMware hints: Silent installation of Virtual Machine extensions is supported, once VMware server|player is installed there will be a file "windows.iso" at "\Program Files (x86)\VMware\[server|Player]\", copy it to \XP64\AddOns\ on your install media (requires 7-Zip). To enable sound on VMware Server you will have to integrate the VMaudio driver (3rd party signed version) with nLite at step 6 of the process AND once you have completed the New Virtual Machine wizard, choose VM >> Settings >> Hardware >> Add >> Sound Adapter. When booting up the Virtual Machine click your mouse inside the VM and hit F2, this will allow you to access the VM BIOS, you can then alter the boot sequence so that it always boots off the CD first. If the BIOS flashes past too fast to access add bios.bootDelay = "5000" to the VMname.vmx config file, this will give you 5 seconds.
  3. Due to formatting and updating issues with MSFN's current forum software, please read this topic at the VirtualBox forums, you can still ask questions in this thread. Win98se_Config_Files.7z

    Windows XP 64 bit nliting questions...

    Although there are differences in the CD layout for an XP x64 source (mainly an extra amd64 folder) there are largely transparent to the end user. Work can be done on XP x64 on a 32-bit host with the exception that SP2 needs some tricks to be slipstreamed and some hofixes won't integrate (5eraph's works fine though).

    HOWTO create a fully up to date XP x64 DVD (EoL Feb 2016)

    Due to the stupid WYSIsn'tWYG editor MSFN now uses I can't fix it when the main post goes awry, for instance when lists change from numbered sequence to bullet points. That is why it got moved to RyanVM, go by that version of the guide. Note that some options got removed, partly to simplify testing, but mainly because some things not longer worked with the pure hotfix method but still did when using 5eraph's packs.

    HOWTO create a fully up to date XP x64 DVD (EoL Feb 2016)

    Just got back from holidays Now while I won't try to troubleshoot component removals, if it doesn't work without removing any components, ask yourself if you did the following steps correctly: Note that nLite must be run with administrator privileges, you might need to disable anti-virus software and most importantly, slipstreaming Service Pack 2 must be done on a Win NT 5.x host (2000/XP/XPx64/2003/2003x64). If working from a SP1 source slipstream service pack 2 then exit nLite (if nLite is open it can interfere with the WMP11 slipstreamer). These are the things most likely to result in a corrupt file error (assuming a clean source), note that all the Microsoft downloads should have a valid digital signature.

    HOWTO create a fully up to date XP x64 DVD (EoL Feb 2016)

    KB2900986 doesn't seem to integrate properly when either using IE7 or when performing the process on a 32-bit host. To avoid it showing up on Windows Update it's silently installed at \RunOnce.

    HOWTO create a XP SP4 DVD with all DriverPacks and some apps

    Thanks for your interest and suggestions PCBONEZ, unfortunately however due to changes in MSFN.org's forum software it is no longer possible for me to update or maintain complex forum posts like the main guide in this topic. Attempts at updating the main post always fail, previously I was able to work on it offline as a basic text file and just copy/paste it but that is no longer an option. I intend over the Christmas break to rewrite and move this topic to another forum host, but there won't be any updates until then. ATICCC.ins is correct at 0 bytes, at least that's what the DriverPacks create with the ATI graphics settings I use.

    VirtualBox Windows 98se step by step

    Neighbour: What processor does your host machine have? I ask because it turns out that while a 98se guest install fails on my current machine (Haswell-E i7-5930K) it installs fine on my old machine (Core 2 Quad Q9450) and I seem to recall something about newer host processors sometimes having an impact on other guest OS installations. 135th: I've fixed the SciTech Display Driver link but this stupid new forum software won't allow me to update the QuickTime Alternative link.

    VirtualBox Windows 98se step by step

    VirtualBox clearly has improved Win98se compatibility since the 5.0.x series, but until I can get it to install W98 under VB 5.1.x without glitches on all my systems I'll keep the recommendation to install W98 using VB 4.3.38

    VirtualBox Windows 98se step by step

    Yes, my command window also goes blank and I have to force restart it to get AutoPatcher going, but the Win 98se boot-up sequence gets more and more unstable as the process continues until it can no longer start (except in safe mode) at all.

    VirtualBox Windows 98se step by step

    I've tried installing Win 98se in VirtualBox 5.1 and while the core OS install goes well, it fails while updating the system with AutoPatcher. Also the sound from the default SoundBlaster 16 is horribly crackly, changing to AC97 at least fixes that aspect.
  18. I'm away from home until Tuesday which is why the tracker is down, hopefully by then then MediaFire's detection issue will have been fixed (nothing apart from Microsoft's signature files has been changed in over a year)

    Why won't some games start on VirtualBox?

    Despite what others have mentioned VirtualBox is still the best option for Win98se Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 is almost as good but doesn't run on Windows versions after Win7 VMware does have driver support but with no graphics acceleration, not even the software acceleration that the SciTech driver gives you in VirtualBox.

    HOWTO create a XP SP4 DVD with all DriverPacks and some apps

    Updated to support version 3.1a of Service Pack 4. The most notable change to the process for the end user is that now there is only one hotfix, the Visual C++ runtime libraries.

    HOWTO create a fully up to date XP x64 DVD (EoL Feb 2016)

    It looks like it will be mainly root certificate and application updates from now on. Unless there is some other component change they will not be listed in the ChangeLog, however the relevant posts will note the month of latest update.

    There are indeed quite a few decent file hash utilities out there these days, although for basic elegance and ease of use reasons, I'll stick with HashTab for now. It would be nice to get one that also checks digital signatures while it's at it.

    HOWTO create a fully up to date XP x64 DVD (EoL Feb 2016)

    I've asked 5eraph to have a look at your issue, it's far better that any problem is fixed within the pack or executables themselves as it's unreasonable to expect end-users to have to deal with nLite's error reporting.

    HOWTO create a XP SP4 DVD with all DriverPacks and some apps

    One thing that's missing is support for a decent 3rd party anti-virus solution that still works on XP and can be silently installed. If anyone can think of one, by all means suggest it.
