Unofficial SP 5.2 for Microsoft Windows 2000 (WIP)

Here is the HFSLIP-info from the new version of HFSLIP. The SETUPREG.HIV in this case is very close if not the same as the one from my SP4 source: https://mega.nz/#!stsnGAjQ!pk3XQYhngBHX91_xOmbNnwuTx5O1lLv5iMB-VLv7GNo

Thank you. As I mentioned above, the difference between the two SETUPREG.HIVs does not seem to matter though. There is, however, another difference in the two HFSLIP-info files of yours. Could you please upload HFSLIPWU.INF from the i386 folder - both the old and the new one?

...I am suspecting that this may be the host OS (which is Windows 10 in your case) to mess the things up.

Maybe I should try HFSLIP on Windows 2000 instead of Windows 10?

I consider it axiomatic that if Windows 10 can't mess something up, nothing can.

OK, here you go: https://mega.nz/#!U0synYDD!HKbkV6VvRxKPLGOkOD3Iy9m2uQoKLBrDHEqJCOLePDc

I installed the copy made with the new HFSLIP last night and it still identified IE as 5 and DX as 7. Maybe I should try HFSLIP on Windows 2000 instead of Windows 10?

Yeah, so the only difference between the old HFSLIPWU.INF and the new HFSLIPWU.INF is the HFSLIP2000 version number included in one of the strings (1.0.2 vs 1.0.3BETA), which does not matter also. Right now there seem to be basically no differences between your and my copies of the updated Windows 2000 source, but mine installs perfectly here, so I am quite confused.

I myself am using Windows 7 (fully updated) as the host OS, and testing the installation in VirtualBox (v5.2.28). Where are you installing your Windows 2000? Is it a real computer, or a virtual machine?

I will try to test slipstreaming under Windows 10 (1809), and will also try to find out why that experimental version of HFSLIP2000 fails (because it is the only case where I can reproduce the IE/DX versioning issue).

Edit: Slipstreaming under Windows 10 makes no difference for me. The resulting source folder is exactly the same as the one slipstreamed under Windows 7. It installs correctly too.

After installing the original HFSLIP-created ISO in Hyper-V, I noticed that IE6 and DX9 reported as such.

I failed to state that I deviate from this form of installation by integrating AHCI drivers in nLite and then installing from USB on real hardware. Sorry for leading you on this wild goose chase :wacko:

Ah, so I guess that we have found the culprit then!

Even though you did take some time away from me, it is all right ;). At least now we know that slipstreaming with HFSLIP2000 works fine under all versions of Windows, and I myself will definitely make use of the HFSLIP2000-info script in my future testing. You kind of motivated me to actually write the script, and for that I am very thankful.

I would guess that it is nLite adding those drivers to cause the IE/DX issue. Installing from USB should normally not affect anything, unless you have used some kind of a fancy tool which tampers with the system files. I do not use nLite anymore, but as far as I remember, there is a special instruction on using it after HFSLIP.

Using nLite after HFSLIP?
(Copied from HFSLIP.ORG). If you plan on using nLite, please do so on the SOURCESS folder after running HFSLIP. Some items to consider:
Do NOT remove sound drivers. If you remove sound drivers, Windows Media codecs won't work.
You have to add some file names to nLite's "keep" box. Please use this utility to generate a list of new files slipstreamed by HFSLIP.

"This utility" can be found here:

Edit: I just want to say that I have not forgotten about the .NET incomplete installation problem. If you look carefully at the progress bar during the Windows setup process, you can clearly see that the .NET Framework components are being processed extremely quickly. I would say - too quickly. This likely means that the INF files responsible for their installation are simply being skipped there. I will try to troubleshoot the problem, but I may need some time to investigate all the possible causes.

Hello! What about porting the BlueKeep patch from XP?

Unfortunately I do not have the skills to do it. In case of Windows XP, M$ has released a new version of the file termdd.sys. The file itself is OS specific, so it is impossible to use the XP file in Windows 2000. The file in our OS would have to be reverse engineered and patched accordingly to the XP file.
