  1. I encountered this problem too. Try modifing the setup.cmd file like the post above, removing only REM characters and maybe it will work
  2. I have attached them in this post. In winsetup.log there is: CDDRIVE U: - srcpath \??\U:\WINSETUP\XPpSP3\ sourcepath = "\??\U:\WINSETUP\XPpSP3\"Setup.cmd, before start of GUI mode found USB drive and files at U: as it should be. You mention USB drive letter D in the error message. Are both from the same install? If yes- at start of GUI mode setup changed drive letters when reenumering USB devices, U: gets lost, path to setup files is broken, installer complains and aborts, just a theory. Can you try again? In E:\WINSETUP\XPpSP3\I386\setup.cmd change rem start /min "USB keep mounted work arround, do NOT close!" pushd %CDDRIVE% to start /min "USB keep mounted work arround, do NOT close!" pushd %CDDRIVE% Yes it was from the same install, and thank you. Althought it appears a little dos windows during install It works very well this time witthat line modified in setup.cmd. Thank you again. It worked
  3. Which Run window do you use? Which OS do you use?Run XP to slipstream a XP SP. Unclear still: slipstream error or USB boot error. Verify slipstreamed XP first. Create a ISO file. Burn a CD. Make a test installation. Anyway: which hardware do you use? Motherboard, BIOS, USB device, USB storage size OK. i'll explain so to be clear. Under Windows XP Pro SP2 operating system: 1. I used an original OEM Windows XP Pro SP2 English CD, a yellowish one from Microsoft with hologram and all those other security things. 2. Copied all the contents to a folder named "XP" on C:\ partition. 3. Downloaded SP3 and left it in the root on C:\ partition, named XPSP3.EXE 4. Clecked Start > Run... and in that windows wrote C:\XPSP3.EXE /integrate:C:\XP and left it to be done. 5. Saved the boot image from original CD with UltraISO. 6. Added the $OEM$ folder in the C:\XP folder and with Total Commander and Winamp in $Progs, and a startup.cpl utility in $$ / Windows / system32 folder. 7. Created an answer file with the setupmgr.exe tool from the CD and saved it and renamed it in WINNT.SIF and put it in the I386 folder. 8. Using Nero Burning Rom, I burned all those files in the C:\XP folder onto a new CD, made it bootable with the boot image extracted with UltraISO. All of these were made under the Windows XP Pro SP2 operating system, not Vista, not W 7 nor '98, and it was made about 2 years ago. I didn't use any other tool, no nLite, no updates were included, nothing else at all. I used that CD for 2 whole years at the installation and I neved had a problem. Everytime the installation and the os newley installed worked very very fine. Now I've decided to put it on an USB stick because it intalls a lot faster so I didn't want to use too many tools, bit this one from here. Was tested on 2 different systems and I always had the same problem. Now it's more convenient for me to test it on a Asus P5N-E SLI MB, BIOS 0703, CPU E2220 2,4Ghz, 1G RAM, 80G Western Digital ATA, VGA Asus EN6600. The USB stick, is an Silicon Power of 16Gb, and I also used an Kingston DT400 of 4Gb - same problem with both of them. I didn't even renamed the partition on the USB stick. I left it blank.
  4. I have attached them in this post. for cdob: I mentioned before. Through /integrate command in Run window. I copied the contents of the CD on a folder on the hard drive, ant I've runed the command integrate SP3 into that folder. About MSVCIRT.DL_, msvcirt.dll. I removed MSVCIRT.DL_ and nothing is different. The same error everytime. Maybe those logs will help finding the problem. Good day. 3files.zip
  5. Was directly slipstremed through the /integrate command.in Run window. No other programs used. No other programs added and used to modd the image of windows other than the ones in $OEM$ folder which are Winamp, Total Commander and a startup.cpl aded in system32 of windows folder. The answer file was made with the setupmgr.exe tool from the same disk. Here is the WINNT.SIF file (maybe something is wrong in it): ' ;SetupMgrTag [Data] AutomaticUpdates="No" AutoPartition="0" MsDosInitiated="0" UnattendedInstall="Yes" [unattended] UnattendMode=FullUnattended UnattendSwitch="No" OemSkipEula=Yes OemPreinstall=Yes TargetPath=\WINDOWS FileSystem=* WaitForReboot="No" NoWaitAfterTextMode=1 NoWaitAfterGUIMode=1 OemPnPDriversPath=Drivers DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore NonDriverSigningPolicy=Ignore KeyboardLayout="US" Hibernation="No" [GuiUnattended] AdminPassword=* EncryptedAdminPassword=NO OEMSkipRegional=1 TimeZone=115 OemSkipWelcome=1 [userData] ProductKey= ---REMOVED--- FullName="WindowsXPPro" OrgName="WindowsXPPro" ComputerName=WINDOWSXPPRO [Display] BitsPerPel=32 Xresolution=1024 YResolution=768 Vrefresh=60 [RegionalSettings] LanguageGroup=2 Language=00000418 SystemLocale=00000418 UserLocale=00000418 InputLocale=0418:00000409 [identification] JoinWorkgroup=WORKGROUP [Networking] InstallDefaultComponents=Yes [WindowsFirewall] Profiles=WindowsFirewall.TurnOffFirewall [WindowsFirewall.TurnOffFirewall] Mode=0 [branding] BrandIEUsingUnattended=Yes Home_Page=http://www.google.com/ [Components] msmsgs=off msnexplr=off AutoUpdate=off chat=off deskpaper=off dialer=off fax=off " In case I didn't mention it, The windows copy was burned onto a CD, and one whole year as I used that CD , the installation was smooth every time, and I never had one problem with that copy. Whenever I install from CD this copy I get no error whatsoever. Nou when I made the USB stick , I used the tool downloaded from this very first post (V1.0 beta 7) and I only added Windows XP and a Windows 7 x64 on the USB stick, whithout making any changes to the settings. W7 installes without a problem, and the XP won't install at all.
  6. Hello. I'm new here and I thank you for the great job you've done. I also encounter a problem when installing XP SP3 I have a legal copy of WIn XP SP2 which had slipstreamed SP3, and I made it unnattended with an WINNT.SIF file with product key and all other settings, also with an $OEM$ folder to get automatically a few programs that I use very often. Now, the problem that I encounter is that right after the first reboot ( on the second part of installing Windows XP ) I get the Fatal Error message: " An error has been encountered that prevents Setup from continuing. One of the components that Windows needs to continue setup could not be installed. There are no more files. Press OK to view the Setup log file" I pressed OK and I get the next window: " System Setup Log - (C:\Windows\setuperr.log) Error: SXS.DLL: Assembly under D:\WINSETUP\XPPSP3\I386\asms\6000\MSFT\WINDOWS\COMMON could not be installed because manifest is missing. *** Error: Installation Failed: D:\WINSETUP\XPPSP3\I386\asms. Error Message : There are no more files. *** Fatal Error: One of the components that Windows needs to continue setup could not be installed. There are no more files. *** " I've looked up in that folder ( D:\WINSETUP\XPPSP3\I386\asms\6000\MSFT\WINDOWS\COMMON ) and I have these files: MSVCIRT.DL_ msvcirt.dll MSVCRT.DL_ msvcrt.dll MSWINCRT.CA_ mswincrt.cat MSWINCRT.MAN and a folder: CONTROLS which contains the files: COMCTL32.DL_ COMCTL32.DLL CONTROLS.CA_ CONTROLS.CAT CONTROLS.MAN The original CD contains only the folder CONTROLS which contains the files: COMCTL32.DLL CONTROLS.CAT CONTROLS.MAN Hope you can help me. Thanks PS: I want to mention that after restart, I booted up also from USB stick (selecting the option with the second part) and HDD directly. In both cases aI get the same error.
