  1. "If I unplug the IDE drive and try to boot off the XP CD it will say "Setup is inspecting your computer's hardware configuration" but wont ask me to "Push any key to boot off the CD". ==> this condition is normal since window xp cd can not detect a valid OS in your system, Then setup is automatically run. On the other hand, what is your brandname of your SATA drive , is it a new one? You can download disk manager from the official web site of HDD. such as seagate/maxtor to test the integrity of your HDD. Furthermore, pls. change back the boot sequence from your BIOS C->cdrom->others after copying all temp file to your HDD
  2. Thks for your answer first. i have tried your method but it fails. I think i have made any mistake. When i try to install xp, everything seems to be normal at first. However, the system can not boot to setting up window xp after completetly copying all the temp file to harddisk C drive. Just show an error message in the black screen that c:\windows\system32\hal.dll can not be found. Furthermore, the speed of copying the temp files to Harddisk drive is very slow. The condition just like smartdrv has not been loaded prior to setting up window xp. Is it possible to make the speed of copying temp file faster? Actually, i can't understand the step 7, can you further explain it? Many many thanks for your reply. 7. Create a folder BOOTFILES in USB stick root, and copy NTDETECT.COM, NTLDR and your custom BOOT.INI, which will be copied on hard disk later, during the first logon. Set them system, hidden and read-only in advance. All the steps are being done within working XP. You need to run that from command prompt of your local XP setup folder. An easy way to do that is by adding this registry info:CMDHERE.REG Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\Command Prompt Here] @="Command &Prompt Here" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\Command Prompt Here\command] @="cmd.exe /k cd %1 " When you import it you may right-click on the desired forder (I386) and from the context menu select OPEN COMMAND WINDOW HERE. @wimb- I just hope I did not make typos or missed a thing, as I usually do
  3. it is more stable to use custom store folder?
  4. kb888111 just like a patch. You have to install this file seperately for some kind of motherboard. Otherwise, you cannot install your sound driver successfully. KB888111 can be found from your original cd bundled with the motherboard. If you lose it, you may contact the motherboard vendor and ask them to send you back the file.
  5. furthermore, can you paste the details of boot.ini from your C:\
  6. yes, maybe this additional driver can be downloaded from your official website of your laptop
  7. you need to download a file for patching 4226 you can find the required file from the below url. during the process of unpatching 4226, you need to enter the numbers from command prompt . maybe you can enter 100000 http://www.lvllord.de/?lang=en&url=downloads Be aware that so many antivirus software will treat this file as virus. If you fell uncomfortable of it, please don't install this file in any aspect.
  8. I should run this command within the existing window xp or from dos command booting from windwo xp setup cd or booting from the usb stick ? thanks for your kind reply
  9. the problem when using ntldr and ntdetect.com to boot from stick or setupldr.bin renamed /ntdetect.com is that USB stick is second hard drive as seen and enumerated by them, but setupldr.bin expects files to be on first hard drive. --> this is the main point
  10. i have the same problem also. Still finding the solution currently.
