  1. Thanks for all the help John. And that EDIT of yours answers one of the questions I was going to pose. I can now confirm that a Nlited image was created and successfully tested on the VM. This time I applied no SP. I'm attaching the "Last Session.ini" file for the record. So, to summarize, the SXS.DLL error associated with GDIPLUS.CA_ is almost certainly originated from trying to slipstream a later service pack on top of an older one which has been slipstreamed itself. Last_Session.ini
  2. Here's a picture of the CD contents (saved to my HDD). I've ran out of ideas. But will try some more google tomorrow. Right now it is 4am There's however one thing nagging me. This is a SP1 integrated OEM disk from Toshiba (SPNOTES.HTM -- which I attached for you -- describes it so). But you did mention before it's not advisable to slipstream service packs in succession. So I'm wondering how much of my attempt to get a working nLited image from it isn't a wild goose chase... SPNOTES.HTM
  3. Yes. I did check that before. Well, seems I hit a dead end. HFSLIP produces an image with the same error. As does slipstreaming SP2 instead of SP3. Nothing I do works. This disc (original oem from toshiba) just can't have an SP slipstreamed. And its the only legit copy of Windows I have
  4. My bad. I did mean No Error. Somehow I mistyped this. So, If I use nLite to just make an image of my OEM disc, there's no error. The error is entirely tied to SP3 integration. Just images. Won't burn to CD until I get a working and the desirable image. Will nonetheless give this a shot because even with manual integration of SP3 I am left with an unworkable installation. Another thing I'm trying is using HFSLIP to generate a XP SP3 working image.
  5. Thank you john, You'll find "Last Session.ini" attached. I've inspected GDIPLUS.CA_ and it's full of data. First bytes are "MSCF". Some more things I tried: - Changed the whole file to 00s and moved it back into the ISO, but same error. - Copied the CD contents into my HDD and did a manual integration of the SP3. Then used nLite to just create the ISO. Same error I don't think this is an issue with nLite. But an issue with my OEM version (Old one. Some 6 or 7 years old). I'm currently downloading SP2 and will try that SP integration to see what happens. If I manage to create a workable ISO, I'll then try and use this as the basis for nLite and see if then I can integrate SP3. Last_Session.ini
  6. Thanks john. But no. I have worked under the same session and started from scratch. I suspected maybe some issue with the \I386\asms\10100\MSFT\WINDOWS\GDIPLUS\GDIPLUS.CA_. I tried several approaches to this error. - Replacing this file inside the generated ISO with another from another CD (there wasn't a 10100 folder. So the replacement file was different. And still the same error). - Using nLite without any customization whatsoever. Not even SP3 integration. Just to generate an image file. Still, same error. No Error. - Using nLite only to integrate SP3. Error. So with this last I'm at least assured it has nothing to do with any changes I was doing to windows setup. But it's a curse in disguise because it leaves me completely stumped without knowing how to circumvent or fix this error. SP3 is the official SP3 from Microsoft. WindowsXP-KB936929-SP3-x86-ENU.exe My XP CD is an OEM with SP1
  7. Hello all, Using only nLite (, splistreaming SP3 into a SP1 OEM installation, removing some windows components I don't need, and making some changes to windows configuration. During test on a VMm I get the following error after the first boot from HD and when Windows is preparing the installation: I've searched the forums for this type of error. There's some references, but nothing that could help me understand what I can do. I'm stumped into what may be causing this. - A broken GDIPLUS.CA_ file? But I can install from the original CD. - Cabbing issues? But I tried with High Compression enabled and disabled from the options pane. - ISO is bad? But I tried with both nLite and RVM Integrator. Could you please help?
