Dell OEM XP Installation Disks and nlite

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Has anyone had success using nlite to create an updated installation disk for a Dell computer?

Right now, I have a Dell OEM SP2 disk and would like to create/merge it with SP3 RC1.

Comments and/or suggestions please.

Thanks,

pagroundhog

Suggestion : Try it! :hello:

Comment : It will work fine.

One of my base XPs is also a Dell OEM Pro SP2.

I did a Nlite ISO from my Dell SP1a disc and a Vlite from my Dell Vista RTM disc. Both worked just fine. :)

hello chris b. and daroga,

Well I tried it and it worked but I had problems during and after the install; here's what happened:

First, the installer informed me that it couldn't find any hard drives so I restarted, pressed F6, and installed them from floppy. Next, I was informed that certain language related DLLs could not be extracted and since I setup nlite to exclude them, I opted to continue. However, once done, I started to recieve a Windows warning that some critical files (not specifically identified) had been replaced by an unknown source and I was asked if I wanted to correct this situation. At this point, I gave up and did a normal reinstall; however, I wonder if thes files were, in fact, related to the 'not yet official' SP3 RC1?

Your thoughts and comments would be appreciated.

Thanks,

pagroundhog
