  1. The latest update files

    With regard to the 12NOV2005\SVC-HF1 folder I have the following differences: files I have not on this location: Q282784_WXP_SP1_x86_ENU.exe Microsoft has released a command-line tool that easily enumerates all of the installed fixes by Microsoft Knowledge Base article number. Customers can then confirm that they have installed the appropriate set of fixes before using a valuable support incident and potentially experiencing unplanned down time. WindowsXP-KB883939-x86-JPN.exe Security issues have been identified that could allow an attacker to compromise a computer running Internet Explorer and gain control over it. You can help protect your computer by installing this update from Microsoft. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer. WindowsXP-KB885222-v2-x86-JPN.exe After you install Windows XP Service Pack 2, some 1394 devices (such as digital cameras that use S400 speed) may not perform as expected. Install this update to help prevent this issue. After you install this update, you will have to restart your computer. WindowsXP-KB885626-v2-x86-jpn.exe This non-security critical update helps resolve an issue where a limited number of systems running a BIOS without production support for Intel Pentium 4 and Intel Celeron D processors based on Prescott C-0 stepping can potentially hang on Windows XP Service Pack 2 installation. After you install this update, you may have to restart your computer WindowsXP-KB886677-x86-jpn.exe This update addresses an issue where double-byte character set (DBCS) characters may appear corrupted in Internet Explorer on Windows XP when you browse a Web site that uses Shift-JIS character encoding. Install this update to help resolve this issue. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer. files I have and are not in the presentend list: WindowsXP-KB899588-x86-ENU.exe A security issue has been identified in the Plug and Play service that could allow an attacker to compromise your Microsoft Windows-based system and gain control over it. You can help protect your computer by installing this update from Microsoft. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer. So in total here are 41 I have 37 hf. After installation only the following optional software is represented to me by windows update: 829019 dotnet 2 891122 WDRM enabled mediaplayers so perhaps there are some hf not necesarry for my system or there are some updates which are included in newer ones in the list of 41
  2. DirectX 9C silent installation

    sorry wrong forum
  3. This is exactly the method I used only here arises the conflict at the above link it says: Lastly, open up DOSNET.inf in the i386 directory and add the following text beneath all the values in [Directory]: Which Gosh said I don't need but installing all in the Guirunonce is slow and installs the hotfixes in a way that I find questioning since the files in the hotfixes are not in the XPCD. So in case of reinstalling (or I must be wrong, which is a good possibility since I'm a newby) things old files on XPCD will or can overwrite the new ones from the hotfixes It's prob. me but all the different ways makes me dazzle and All I want is a clean unattended hotfixes pre-installed unattended smooth installation, with a minimum of wasted space on the XPCD and on my hard disk after installation….
  4. I'm almost afraid to ask more, but I still want to know if this methods is compatible with installing unattended hotfixes in a way that the most recent files are one the CD., so that in case of reinstallation of some files the hotfixes are not overwritten with old files. In other words how to put in post SP1 hotfixes in this install during the setup and not in a batch or guirunonce, after the setup? I've know tried this method and installed the hotfixes in guirunonce and that produced a lot of garbage in my system folder regarding these hotfixes. that's why I asked how to combine the methodes, I'll be fine not to use dosnet.inf, but please tell me then how to correctly install hotfixes with a minimum off garbage production>?
  5. I've been reading this forum an also the forum about the Greenmachine's version of RoyalBox HotFix SlipStreaming Method http://board.MSFN.org/index.php?showtopic=9442 No I'm wondering about this dosnet.inf, because when reducing the size of the installation descibed in this forum leaves me without the dosnet.inf file. So what should I do 1. copy back the dosnet.inf file so I can add the stuff about optionalsourcedir etc 2. first make a CD with help of Greenmachine's slipstreaming methode for hotfixes and then try the method described in this forum to reduce the size? 3. something completely different Can someone please help me with this?
  6. what about this hal thing, no hal problems here. What is this hal used for, I mean what is it?
  7. I think I made it work now... In the screen where you choose the language there's a button: Advanced Options I selected (it wasn't by default) "copy all installation files from the Setup CD" tadaa and there is the folder $WIN_NT$.~LS next to the $WIN_NT$.~BT still have a question about the last screen is het better to say yes to get the updates or will that be unnecesarry since the unattende part later on for the hotfixes will cover that?
  8. Same results here have you got it workin' yet Dave ? (I also am getting only 1 folder: $WIN_NT$.~BT) I started from GUI WinXP in VMware: d:\i386\winnt32 /noreboot followed the screens: -new installation (advanced) -put in the key -choose language -skip update files and only $WIN_NT$.~BT is created with 4.8 Megs of data where did I go wrong?
  9. OK, First time here, I have been reading a lot about hotfixes but still not sure about what to do for a silent install.. Because the overwhelming posts on this item I'm getting confused (my fault ) I'm amazed by all the possibilities of the installation methods and I'm getting quit enthusiastic to getting started my own silent installations... Anyway can I get a short explanation about the methods for silently installing hotfixes with my XP SP1 installation. So far I've read about batch methods and svcpack.inf methods Which is what and what are the pro's ? I would prefer a method which is safe for uninstall en reinstalling things so that I won't be bothered with reappearing of older versions of files. A link to both methods and a short description would be fine... If for any reason someone feels offended by this request, sorry I'm lazy
