  1. What version number of Windows Live Messenger are you seeing this with, and were you using the display audio file playing feature when It happened? Edit: I just got hit by it as well.
  2. Has anyone here gotten xFire to work while using Yahoo Messenger? I can't get it to work here.
  3. Don't you get targeted ads in Gmail? And if you have Ad-blocking software like Norton Internet Security or something installed the ads don't show anyway.
  4. GM, MBSA can be flaky if files installed are newer than it expects to find.
  5. I would have to agree with GM on the updates. Since SP2 is only a Release Candidate and not the final one, they probably won't let anyone get them any other way until the Final is released.

    XPlode 1.1.2

    killerbee, I think it can be edited in any text editor that supports unicode... Wraith, feel free to tell if I got it wrong.
  7. I'm having a slight problem as well. When I use a winnt.sif file, the installation ends up with IE not associated with http url's and the Windows Update shortcut on the Classic Start Menu fails to open the Windows Update Website. I can post an edited version of my winnt.sif if it would be of help.
  8. If you put a compressed copy of the SATA/RAID driver in the I386 directory, you shouldn't need to.
  9. If it's written in C or C++, I might be able to do something if the code can be compiled with GCC, since that's the only 32bit compiler I have.
  10. DX 9.0b should have been there. DX9ntopk is the same thing. The Creative Tech update isn't a "Critical" update. KB817778 cannot be installed with XPCreate. You'll get an error message. Go to Start - Run and type SYSOCMGR to see what you'll get. As far as the others, I'm not sure.
  11. I have a DVD+RW drive. I like it so far. The one I have is the Liteon LDW-401S.
  12. @Alanoll, both of the motherboards I've had in my PC in the last year support booting from USB in the BIOS. I would agree with you on installing over the network, though.
  13. Interesting. I get 3.5 to 4 minute copy times from my CD-ROM and it's an old drive. I haven't tried copying from my new one, yet.
  14. Only file I put in was XPSP2. All 273MB of it. I might have the rest here somewhere if you want a more "accurate" time... For what it's worth, GM, my times on PATA are close to yours on SATA. I think the one full disk I did was around 35 minutes.
  15. Well, I just did one. GM, this is Windows XP Pro 2002, just updating it to Service Pack 2 RC1. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -- 16:53:48 -- Started at: 16:46:29 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -- 16:53:48 -- Finished at: 16:53:48 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- System is Athlon XP 2200+, 512 MB RAM, Creative 8432 CD-RW drive reading the XP CD-ROM, WD 80 GIG Parallel ATA HD. Just to the ISO stage, not including burning the image to CD-R.
  16. If they all support booting from a usb drive, you should be able to use the dvd-rom to do it. If not, multiple disks is the only way to go, but I don't know exactly how it would be done. How have you tried making the ISO? I was able to build an image of XP Home/XP Pro that still fit on one CD using the guide here.
  17. Don't have either program you mentioned to try that. As for the virtual hard disk, it's set for dynamic. I'll try fixed size to see if that makes any difference. Even with it using a fixed size disk, it hangs up.
  18. Microsoft Virtual PC. It hangs when trying to format. It does create the partitions, but hangs trying to access the CDROM. Error message is this: "Please insert the following disk in drive D (or your CD-ROM drive): Windows 98 Boot Disk or CD-ROM When you are ready to continue, press ENTER. " Since the disk is an ISO image and it is "in" the virtual cd-rom, I hit enter and the error message repeats.
  19. Yes, the mscdex.exe is on the ramdisk. The ramdisk is D:, so I'd have to set the CDROM as E:. Like I said though, if I exit the setup to the A:\ command prompt, I can fdisk and format the virtual drive, reboot and OEMSetup will start to install Windows 98se. I even tried different virtual drive sizes last night to see if that was the problem, and it's not.
  20. Here it is. @ECHO OFF set EXPAND=YES SET DIRCMD=/O:N set LglDrv=27 * 26 Z 25 Y 24 X 23 W 22 V 21 U 20 T 19 S 18 R 17 Q 16 P 15 set LglDrv=%LglDrv% O 14 N 13 M 12 L 11 K 10 J 9 I 8 H 7 G 6 F 5 E 4 D 3 C cls call setramd.bat %LglDrv% set temp=c:\ set tmp=c:\ path=%RAMD%:\;a:\;%CDROM%:\ copy command.com %RAMD%:\ > NUL set comspec=%RAMD%:\command.com copy extract.exe %RAMD%:\ > NUL copy readme.txt %RAMD%:\ > NUL :ERROR IF EXIST ebd.cab GOTO EXT echo Please insert Windows 98 Startup Disk 2 echo. pause GOTO ERROR :EXT %RAMD%:\extract /y /e /l %RAMD%: ebd.cab > NUL echo The diagnostic tools were successfully loaded to drive %RAMD%. echo.

  21. I was trying to get a screen capture so you could see exactly the error I'm getting. It's still in DOS. I'm using flyakite's 98se disk image, so I think the path is set right. For what it's worth, if I manually partition and format, OEMSetup will start the installation. Figure that out...
  22. @Alanoll, that's exactly what mine is not doing... It boot from the DVD image in Virtual PC, goes through the start up, tells me it needs to format the disk, at which point I get the error I posted. I thought I was being specific enough...
  23. I haven't burned it to DVD yet since I don't want to do that til I have it working right before I do that. Even if I fdisk from a DOS prompt in Virtual PC, 98se won't format the drive in DOS mode. It errors out with " Please insert Windows 98 CD-ROM or floppy and press Enter."
  24. @Alanoll My problem is that once I get to the point of formatting the hard drive it keeps asking for me to insert the Windows 98 CD. I'm using 98se OEM on a Multi-boot DVD built using flyakite's guide, including the disk images on his site.
  25. I've read this somewhere before... I found it as funny then as I do now.
