  1. How to use mkisofs and boot.bin

    Wait, do you mean nLite? I don't understand what you mean. I tried jaclaz's command and I still get the error. So it's just not working how it should or I'm going crazy. nLite can burn the CDs for you Just tell it to at the end :3
  2. When I plug in USB stick windows ask for SP3 CD

    Dont remove "Removable Storage" -- thats the drivers for mass storage devices :3
  3. nLite for Dummies documentation

    That'd be a tricky one... you'd need DODWipe or DHDW. I'd really try a healthy combination of Billix (a free light linux distro and loader for several tools such as MemTest86) and an nLited install of XP
  4. How to use mkisofs and boot.bin

    ... And is there a reason to not use the default, built in options? it tells you the command line you're using.
  5. How to use mkisofs and boot.bin

    ... Let nLite make the ISO for you Under the options, there's a selection for "Bootable ISO" -- simply wait to press the "Make ISO" button if you have to change things/add things by hand. I've had too much coffee
  6. Loading update pack

    TTBOMK, they're already perfectly silent, so you can add them directly to the hotfixes. they'll be added right to the list of addons and integrated at install time.
  7. addon problem new with nlite

    I'd narrow the problems down to a certain set of addons -- there's an AVG8 installer somewherere around here (I'd make an appointment with mr. Goog L E Search. above and ask him about the problems with those addons) Nero has always been a prat. Plain and simple. there's a thread somewhere around here for doing Nero and such. But thanks for posting the info about your nLite config. Everything seems kosher with that. I'd check your addons. (read for the classic forum-er rant.) On another front, no you cant make the installers just wait for the user input after windows has installed. This would mean modifying the installers. Many of them in fact bubble up for user input _before_ they've even installed and some even come up for air after they've started the installer process. Its just how they are. Have you also tested them in some kind of Virtualized environment? I'd suggest for a fast and free one, try Microsoft's Virtual PC 2007 -- it can handle most installs nicely. If you want more control and dont mind a large download, try Sun's xVM VirtualBox. http://www.sun.com/virtualbox for more info.
  8. Wont completely boot.... Just keeps rebooting.

    thats your problem.. RE-install disks just dont cut it because they've been custom tailored I assumed you were using a normal OEM install disk -- one that was made for OEMs
  9. Wont completely boot.... Just keeps rebooting.

    Is it a stock source? ---------- It is a OEM version, if that is what you are asking. --> OK, at least its not a reinstall disk Do you have any additions installed? ---------- No additions, I have added a batch file to the root of the CD. --> What are the contents of this CD? are you removing anything? ---------- Is there something I shouldnt remove? --> Some things can cause system instability if you dont have at least _some_ of them (things like a few graphics drivers and other hardware) do you get a "boot from CD" prompt? ---------- Yes, I am able to install just fine, its once the installation is complete the preceding boot goes into a loop or rebooting. --> sounds like XP is hanging on some kind of stuck driver... have you confirmed that the source will install correctly? ---------- Yes, I have used the source disc to successfully install XP. --> This means the source disk isnt broken. have you considered that you deleted something you shouldn't have? ---------- Yes, but it is not obvious to me that one of the items that I am selecting not to have installed would prevent boot. --> Again, some things can make the system unstable in the real world have you attempted booting it in safe mode? ---------- Yes, I can boot into safe mode. --> Means a driver is broken somewhere or something is missing that the system expects for a normal startup. I'd try doing the nLitenment again, basing it off the OEM disk and wiping the old nLited version. there is an option called "safe" in the Components selection dialog. its next to the tray button, under "presets->Load"... this is a safe way to slim down your install without making life crazed.
  10. nLite Corporate/Government use

    there's an older topic on this. It basically revolves around using it for personal use only keeps neui from being sued out his ars* to mars by a large corperation because they used nLited installations. It also revolves around the fact that nLite DESTROYS the EULA in so many ways that it basically can kill your windows liscense in large corps.
  11. Wont completely boot.... Just keeps rebooting.

    Is it a stock source? Do you have any additions installed? are you removing anything? do you get a "boot from CD" prompt? have you confirmed that the source will install correctly? have you considered that you deleted something you shouldn't have? have you attempted booting it in safe mode?
  12. Bump+updated. This IS a win32 GUI app -- if you want to you can read the source from the first link Its all in form1.vb BrowserBoxes by the way are a cheap little hack to get a cheap file browsers. Because i couldnt find one in .NET already. I cant read info about the executable yet but all you _really_ need for a basic installer is the name, filename of the installer and its switches. The generator takes care of the rest. I havent added MSI support yet because of some various problems with MSIEXEC.
  13. Loading update pack

    Figured it out you should download the Post-SP3 Update Pack from the first mirror. its gonna be a 7z file. open nLite, follow SOP and add that 7z file to it. I had no problem... check that you downloaded the right file. WARNING! !!! I haven't actually tested the RVM-Update Pack-SP3! the problem was not being able to add it to the Addons page! RTFM for help! http://www.ryanvm.net/msfn/nlite.html for instructions!!! !!!
  14. Loading update pack

    try extracting the update pack -- there's a 99% chance it doesnt have an entries.ini file associated with it. Which update pack are you trying to use? links please?
  15. Help! nlite

    one: Yes you can. All you have to do is set those in the unattended Options dialog. Its not at FirstBoot its all in the installation stuff -- quite literally a modified installer to put whatever you want on it. nLite quite literally modifies the installation before its been installed. Second+third: 90% of all installers have some form of "silent" installation -- a way of installing without any user interaction. Some installations require whats known as an "answer file" -- a file they go to for information about the installer. Your best bet is to look in the sub-forum of nLite with the addons in it. Think of it this way: Windows XP is a car. nLite is a tool to make that car look as cool as you want and take out all the features you dont need and add the features you want. Hows that?
