Test Zero Posted March 17, 2004 Share Posted March 17, 2004 I'm having a go using the version of Windows PE that Longhorn 4053's Setup uses.I ran Longhorn's \SOURCES\SETUP.EXE in Windows XP. This copies the installation files from \SOURCES\INSTALL.WIM to C:\$WINDOWS.~BTSetup then reboots the computer.C:\$WINDOWS.~BT\BOOTSECT.DAT boots up, which launches Windows PE.C:\$WINDOWS.~BT\system32\winpeshl.exe launches. Hex edit this file:winpeshl.exe launches C:\$WINDOWS.~BT\system32\startnet.cmd and then C:\$WINDOWS.~BT\Sources\SETUP.EXE and then finally reboots the computer.factory -winpeThis sets the screen resolution and then installs network components.SETUP.EXE should then load. However, I deleted this file beforehand. netstart.cmd's command prompt window stays on-screen. However, when this window is closed, winpeshl.exe restarts the computer because it thinks that SETUP.EXE has finished installing Longhorn (when it actually hasn't, because it doesn't even exist).I'm going to have a play with this; see if I can stop winpeshl.exe from rebooting, and see if it's possible to add Explorer to this. If anyone could point me in the right direction, please give me a hand with this. I'll let you know if I find out how to get this going properly.
