  1. hey Viper, are you the one that got all 3 of my modded EEE's? Your not too far from me, I already burned off a boot disk with the updated bios and verified its bootable. Contact me if you want it.

    here is what I did:

    grab a windows 98 boot image (I use this one)

    Use nero to make a bootable cd, chose "image file" and select the image you just downloaded.

    Select floppy emulation

    add in the bios files

    burn until crispy:)

  2. actually its very easy to use! Here is what I do.

    Download the program, and all the drivers you wish to use. You will not need anything else (the base, etc)

    I put everything into one folder at the root of the CD. I call it "drivers"

    Run the program, it will ask for locations and options, do everything EXCEPT do not "install". When you have everything set up how you want it, click "Ini file" button, and create it in the same folder.

    Now, every time you click the program, it will read this .ini and do whatever you specified.

    Since this is a simple stand alone program, it will not do anything for txt mode

    Here is my .ini in case you want to cheat:

    Check_For_Wizard_Title=Found New Hardware Wizard

  3. GoSpeed, you didn't send me your WPI launcher code, I wanted to look at that. It's nothing to do with the WPI code.

    I am using this cmdlines:


    and the runwpi.exe to call wpi. I am not using any other launcher. It is version

    Not sure if that helps, but this same issue was verified by Kelsenellenelvian unless I am misunderstanding his post. The only thing I am changing is just the WPI folder, nothing else.

    The way I need it to work is as before, where WPI starts first, allows you to install everything, forces a shutdown, and then once windows restarts, the desktop is allowed to load. I have that functionality in the old version that I am currently using, but it has the .xml error.

  4. simply remove the winnt.sif file that is in the i386 folder. If you want to make life easier you could also edit it (use notepad) and type in your key instead. One thing to conisder though, your purchased key will ONLY work if it is the correct cd. If it is a corporate version (very likely) that you got, your key will not work.

  5. Anyone using the 7.2.0 version of WPI that runs it before the desktop loads? I am having an issue where mine fails to run before, no matter if I check the "allow desktop.." box is checked or not. I have verified it still works properly with my old WPI, and I use the runwpi.exe in my $oem$ folder just like I have since they were released. All I am doing is swapping out the wpi folder, not the trigger. I have tried it on several computers, and it always loads wpi WHILE the desktop finishes loading.

    I am just trying to figure out how many of us there are, am I the only one?

  6. Zeus, are you saying that you want WPI to run before the desktop loads? I am having an issue with this as the old WPI would run this way and the new version will not (for me). No matter if I check the box or uncheck it, the desktop always loads while WPI starts up. I had to go back to the older version to make it work until a fix is found. If this is happening to you, we need to figure out what is going on, as we are the only ones having this problem.
