include xp64bit

There are 64 bit FiraDisk drivers at new attached XP_Inst.gz

Default is x86 drivers still, works at XP x86 and 2003 x86.

Set 64 bit drivers at menu.lst:

cat --locatei="= firadisk32" --replace="= firadisk64" (fd1)/TXTSETUP.OEM

Script i'm successfully using for server 2003 32bit

title *) Windows Server 2003 - Enterprise\n
find --set-root /ISO/FLOPPY/SRVR3SP2.IMA.gz
map --mem /ISO/FLOPPY/SRVR3SP2.IMA.gz (fd0)
map --mem /ISO/FLOPPY/SRVR3SP2.IMA.gz (fd1)

map (hd1) (hd0)
map --hook
chainloader (0xff)/I386/SETUPLDR.BIN
cant find option to attach modified file
SRVR3SP2.IMA.GZ

advantage of this script over your script is that we can use winnt.sif for unattended instlation inside SRVR3SP2.IMA.GZ folder... while using your above script system dose not read winnt.sif... any solution

the device associated with following device driver will not work correctly on this computer /firadisk/firadisk.sys

Please do read attentively cdob's post:

http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/137714-install-xp-from-a-ram-loaded-iso-image/?p=1061029

PARTICULARLY this part:

Default is x86 drivers still, works at XP x86 and 2003 x86.

Set 64 bit drivers at menu.lst:

cat --locate="= firadisk32" --replace="= firadisk64" (fd1)/TXTSETUP.OEM

If you have not modified txtsetup.oem as above, the firadisk driver that will be attempted to load will be the 32 bit version, which obviously cannot work for 64 bit.

Post your TXTSETUP.OEM, that error comes if you provide a "wrong architecture driver":

here i face another problem....

i see winxpx64 is still mounted as CD i can see it as cd drive in my computer when ever i plug my usb into the system...

I am not understanding what you mean, please try to describe this issue in more detail, or using different words. :unsure:

Try opening disk manager (when the USB stick is connected) and post a screenshot of it.

Try opening disk manager (after you disconnect the USB stick) and post a screenshot of it

i formatted my system, will install again then able to post screenshots...
problem is

after successful installation of Windows XP SP2 x64

when ever i insert my installation usb into system two new drives appear into my computer instead one (which should be my usb disk)

one of these two disks is my usb disk...

other is a cd-rom drive showing my winxpx64.iso file mounted (winxpx64.iso file is saved into my usb disk from where i installed this window)

when i eject my USB disk both drive disappear from my computer...

Try manually changing the line:

[Defaults]
scsi = firadisk32

to:

[Defaults]
scsi = firadisk64

for the experiment.

TXTSETUP.OEM

Why is yours so different?

At first glance you are missing firaedit.inf which also removes the firadisk service, the one which brings you up second disk, the CD with XP contents...

There might be other issues because of the missing lines.

this is another TXTSETUP.OEM in firaDisk folder

i'm using this file

http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_id=37547

What about this other txtsetup.oem file?

Where is that attachment from?

It's quite hard to follow you.
