  1. JFX, Thanks for this wonderful tool. Is there is a checkbox in the GUI for forceunsigned and testsigning ? ( I cant seem to find it ) Or is it only a command line option ? Any plans of making the code open source and maybe hosting it on github ? I would love to contribute to this project.
  2. Please update the guide with support for vista and 7,
  3. VMLite (a virtualization technology based on VirtualBox ) can run XP Mode in Windows even if your processor is not capable of Hardware Virtualization. Its a tweaked version of VirtualBox and can run XP Mode even in Windows Vista. The XP Mode in VMlite does not require activation.(You have to download XP Mode from Microsoft and install it with VMLite) You can download VMlite here http://www.vmlite.com/index.php/products/vmlite-xp-mode Download XP Mode from Microsoft here http://download.microsoft.com/download/7/2...PMode_en-us.exe Download How To Guide here http://www.vmlite.com/index.php/products/v...ode/howto-guide

  5. Thanks. I found what I wanted. I will test it and post my feedback here.
  6. I want to avoid clicking on Load Driver(and load the driver from a secondary medium) in the Disk Partitioning part of the Vista Setup. The following Links contain the almost all the Mass Storage drivers. http://driverpacks.net/driverpacks/windows...ss-storage/9.01 http://forum.driverpacks.net/viewtopic.php?pid=32980 I want add one of these or both of these drivers to my Vista Setup's boot.wim This will make sure that the Vista Setup will detect and recognize any kind SATA/RAID hard disk during installation. Can anybody please help me?
  7. One of the most annoying things about using driverpacks is that the MassStorage drivers take ages load(TextMode part of Setup) The main reason for this is that all the MassStorage Drivers are compressed.Uncompressed driver files will take less time load than compressed files(This does not hold good if you are installing XP from USB). You can expand all the boot files using expand -r. But the problem is that many file names change after expanding due to which you will get an error during installation.So I have created a batch file which checks whether file name changes after expanding.If it changes then the compressed driver is used.If the file name does not change then the uncompressed file is used. The first step is to Create a BOOT folder which contains the necessary boot files(MassStorage Drivers,txtsetup.sif,winnt.sif etc) Download speedboot.zip attachment.Extract the files and place them next to I386 folder(Assuming this I386 has been nLited and DP integrated). Run makeboot.bat.It will create a folder BOOT .This contains all the necessary boot files. Now run expandboot.bat.You will have two folders next to I386. BOOT(contains the expanded boot files) and oldboot(contains boot files in their original form) You can delete the oldboot folder or move it some other location. Next, in the BOOT folder hex edit setupldr.bin. Replace the word i386 with BOOT (all capital letters), your hex editor should make 4 changes. Download XP boot sector from http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/view/web/15/ Hex Edit boot.img and change i386 to BOOT. Now follow instructions http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/view/web/15/ to create XPCD.Use the Hex Edited boot.img while creating the CD. I tested this in Virtual BOX booting from XP iso.Time taken for loading of MassStorage Drivers(From the time the blue screen appears till it prompts you to install XP or launch Recovery Console) The boot files in their original form Time Taken: 47 secs The boot files in their expanded form,after using expandboot.bat Time Taken: 23 secs This is how my XP Source folder looks. Contents of oldboot.Observe that many files end with sy_ Contents of BOOT.Observe that many files end with sys Ref: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=9478&st=0 http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=106964&hl= speedboot.zip
  8. Can't we load dummydisk.sys during txt mode part of xp setup to see the 2nd partition of usb?
  9. Using dummydisk.sys i created 2 partitions on my usb drive. How do I keep the xp source files in the 2nd partition instead of the first partition of the usb?
  10. How can I include environment variables like %systemdrive% I want to extract the drivers to %systemdrive%\d
  11. This method works beautifully.I agree with you. But the problem is that you don't get the increase in speed if you copy all files in the boot folder into the i386 folder. If you keep the boot files in a separate folder you get a boost in the speed. this method has been working beautifully for me
