  1. If you are refering to downloading XPCREATE, then try: http://xpcreate.com/download/
  2. Hey GM Long time! Just wanted to let you know, I am alive and well Just been busy with work and other projects! Would love to test anything you need, just drop me a line anytime! -Shareef
  3. Well, its kinda hard to say. Gmail has a very clever "labeling" system which makes it almost like chat. It allows you to group all your mail into one thread, making it so easy keep track... and other things, unless you are using gmail, and remember, its still at beta, for a web based email service, its awesome.
  4. First one gets it! Use link below and if you are successful in getting it, please leave a post saying that, so others wont waste their time trying the link. To accept this invitation and register for your account, visit http://gmail.google.com/gmail/a-23c60051bd-6202a34155 Thanks! Gone!
  5. Totally agree prathapml! Last I knew, MSFN was all about helping each other! Signs of frustration in replies totally uncalled for. If no "constructive help" is forthcoming, apart from "use search", better to remain silent! My 2 cents.... Ohhh I forgot.....hehehehe @shapeless Dude, I am sure prathapml's suggestion above will work out for you, If not, go to the BitTornado website and send "theshadow" a mail with your question. He is a real nice and friendly guy! He'll point you in the right direction, if he can! Otherwise, if I catch him online, I'll ask and pass on what he says to you!
  6. Hey take out your CD key number Check your WINNT.SIF against mine attached..... WINNT.SIF WINNT.SIF
  7. I presume you also used a WINNT.SIF file? And if so, can you attach that please, just maybe the issue lies there. Just saw you log file, you have alot extra there, try taking all of them out and use ONLY the "failsafe" items and see if the problem happens again. Also, what are you using for your source?
  8. Came across this site, which might be of interest to the limited numbers of Win98SE (English Version ONLY) users here! Exuberent Software Kinda interested how well it does the job! Not that I use Win98SE anymore, just curious! Oppphs, just noticed that this was posted a while back! Sowwie!
  9. Many Happy Returns Aaron!!! Dont drink too much....... -Shareef
  10. Hi Place the WINNT.SIF (Make sure it has a SIF extention, NOT WINNT.SIF.TXT or anything like that. Has to be only WINNT.SIF) in FILESCD\I386 only! Do not place elsewhere. Take out the Drivers for the time being. Check your WMP file, it doesnt seem to be the correct version for WinXP. You can place the reg files in \FILESCD\$OEM$\, using a cmdlines.txt file. Both the reg file or files and the cmdlines.txt file should be there. See mine and change it to suit your own needs). We can work on the rest once we get the present issues resolved. cmdlines.txt
  11. Not sure where you are getting the "Line 1 of the INF file". Make sure the WINNT.SIF has the correct file extention. Also, have a look at my WINNT.SIF (attached), it works fine from \FILESCD\I386\ Hope this helps... WINNT.SIF
  12. Try the following method, perhaps it might resolve your issues! 1) Make sure your folder option is set to "show hidden files and folders". 2) Make a folder in C Drive (not in My Documents) called "XPC-SOURCE". 3) Using Windows Explorer copy ALL source CD contents to above folder on the hard drive. 4) Create another folder in C Drive called WINXP-XPC, where you have to extract the XPCREATE Files (Make sure you have the latest version). 5) Make sure all the hotties etc are in appropriate folders in the WINXP-XPC folder. 6) Change the xpcreate.ini file to :- [XPCREATE] XPSOURCE=C:\WINXP-SOURCEBOOTIMGFILE=BOOT\XPCTBOOT.BINXPISO=WXPCREATE.ISOCDERASE=NOCDSPEED=MAXCDBURNER=D: Change drive letter to your CD-RW, if planning to burn a CD in one go (Place DISK in Drive). Otherwise you would find the ISO file created in "WINXP-XPC" folder.7) Run "XPCREATE.CMD". 8) Make sure you have a programme to delect ISO files, like WinISO or UltraISO, otherwise you just might miss it. 9) Then you can burn the ISO file using Nero or whatever burning software you have. 10) Test it on MS Virtual PC or VMware if needed. This works well for me, never had any issues you guys describe. Hope this helps some.... and excuse me if I stated the obvious above, but sometimes it the very simple things that get overlooked!
  13. Please see below for DIR structure used to create a CD which included the latest April hotties and updates. Folders not included being empty - SPACKSxpsp1a_en_x86.exe SVC-DAHKB832414_MSXML3.0_x86.exe SVC-EXEMSJavx86.EXE (Using the Baliktad method) SVC-HF1Q322011_WXP_SP2_x86_ENU.exeQ327979_WXP_SP2_x86_ENU.exeQ810243_WXP_SP2_x86_ENU.exeQ811114_WXP_SP2_x86_ENU.exeQ814995_WXP_SP2_x86_ENU.exeQ815021_WXP_SP2_x86_ENU.exeWindowsMedia-Q828026-x86-ENU.exeWindowsXP-KB810217-x86-ENU.exeWindowsXP-KB820291-x86-ENU.exeWindowsXP-KB821253-x86-ENU.exeWindowsXP-KB822603-x86-ENU.exeWindowsXP-KB823182-x86-ENU.exeWindowsXP-KB824105-x86-ENU.exeWindowsXP-KB824141-x86-ENU.exeWindowsXP-KB825119-x86-ENU.exeWindowsXP-KB826939-x86-ENU.exeWindowsXP-KB826942-x86-ENU.exeWindowsXP-KB828028-x86-ENU.exeWindowsXP-KB828035-x86-ENU.exeWindowsXP-KB828741-x86-ENU.EXEWindowsXP-KB829558-x86-ENU.exeWindowsXP-KB833998-x86-ENU.EXEWindowsXP-KB835732-x86-ENU.EXEWindowsXP-KB837001-x86-ENU.EXE SVC-HF2js56nen.exeOE6.0sp1-KB837009-x86-ENU.exeQ831167.exeQ832894.exe SVC-MDCENU_Q832483_MDAC_x86.EXE SVC-MSXHMTCDWizard_enu.exe SVC-PREDX9NTopk.exe SVC-SWFswflash.cab SVC-WMPMPSetupXP.exe SVC-X2Mdotnetfx.exejviewer.exemm20enu.exemsxml.msimsxml3usa.msiThe resulting CD installed on MS Virtual PC without any issues. After running MS Update, the following items showed as required - Advanced Networking Pack for Windows XP KB817778 Q327405: Recommended Update (HU1002_PRO.EXE)Windows Messenger 4.7The above were not included in the setup by choice. I see no reasons why they cannot be added if you so wish! Hope this helps some.
  14. Exactly, and just make the proper modifications in the winnt.sif file at the OemPnPDriversPath Blyster Excuse my ignorance, but new to this SATA thingie ! I have the following - $OEM$\$1\DRIVERS\SATA [drivers placed here] Please note the $1 In WINNT.SIF I put the following - OemPnPDriversPath="DRIVERS\SATA" DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore I tested this on MS Virtual PC, so I guess I wont get any confirmation if the intergration was sucessful or not. Is there a way to verify this, without actually doing a "live" test. Any clarification would be most helpful! Thanks in advance.
  15. This update changes the behavior of the Shop for music online link in the My Music folder. Previously, clicking this link would launch Internet Explorer. After installing this update, clicking this link will launch the default browser. This UPDATE (WindowsXP-KB833998-x86-ENU.EXE) can be installed via SVC-HF1. Tested and working!
