Two Questions About Diyba 128GB PAE Patch

That's fine, buddy.

From your claims, I can see you really have an in-depth knowledge about the subject.
Looking forward to your perfect patch. It's good to have alternatives. ;)

As long as we respect and don't copy each other's work, it's all good! :thumbup

Man do you have a disk greater than 2.2TB ? I have a experimental disk patch that can even unlock GPT in XP.

As you love experimenting with hardware so I am asking .

The patch is pretty stable but from time to time (several weeks between) I get a BSOD. Especially when I run a browser based on Chromium. :crazy:

that BSOD has nothing to do with his patch @daniel_k

I have also suffered multiple times from BSOD in the past when shutting the chrome 49 off

I recently got a BSOD with the 360 Explorer browser (chromium) and I suspect it's caused by the graphic card driver...

Of course it does, if it happens only on patched systems (which is the case)! :wacko:

But if it only happens several weeks apart, most probably on wednesdays and fridays only, and if there is a full moon when you close Chrome, and only if you do so at the exact moment when the time hundreth seconds are odd, then it is a meta-para-pseudo connection :w00t:, it has to do and it has nothing to do with the patch at the same time, hence should be classified primarily under the "voodoo" tag. :ph34r:

my PC was not patched at all when I got a BSOD. it normally happens when closing web browsers based on chromium.

it's OK. :worship:

I have not had any BSOD with the brazilian patch @daniel_k although with my current ASUS mainboard it only works with the 4GB string.

I have tested the ''ALL'' string with another ASUS board and it works just fine thus I think the russian patch is based on the ALL string too.

so if you ever release your own patch think on that, some hardware may not support over 4GB of RAM.

To be fair, Dibya never said Christmas of which year ... :whistle:

question for experts.

how can I mix up the kernel 1 with the 3

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /HAL=halpae.dll /TUTag=9CKGRR /Kernel=TUKernel.exe
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional (TuneUp Backup)" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /HAL=halpae.dll /KERNEL=ntkrpae.exe /TUTag=9CKGRR-BAK
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP DANIEL" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /HAL=halpae.dll /KERNEL=ntkrpae.exe

Can you expand on it?

I don't understand what the question is.

What is the 1, what is the 3 , what (the heck) do you mean by "mix up the kernel"?

ok. sorry.

I want to use at once the 4GB PAE and a custom boot screen created with TuneUp utility. (it's pretty simple)

the bottom line (3) is the original 4GB PAE @daniel_k

as you can see TuneUp creates its own kernel file (Kernel=TUKernel.exe) and set aside the 4GB kernel as backup (KERNEL=ntkrpae.exe)

once I restart Windows I can only see 3GB of RAM :crazy:

it seems like TuneUp makes use of the original NTOSKRNL file to create it's own kernel file = TUKernel.

I have tried to replace the NTOSKRNL file for NTKRPAE file but renaming it as NTOSKRNL

the problem is that Windows immediately restores the origial kernel file so this trick won't work

Besides it being IMNSHO opinion a perfect example of "looking for troubles" (actually "senselessly looking for troubles"), if we generalize the question to "How can I replace a "system" file which is protected by WFP (Windows File Protection) sometimes called "SFC"?", then the answer is "You shouldn't and you cannot (according by Microsoft)."

BUT, there are a couple good ol' tricks possible making use of a "hacked" SFC.DLL or (IMHO simpler/cleaner) an empty SFCFILES.DLL:

https://web.archive.org/web/20110719154642/http://www.vorck.com/windows/software.html

Will either method work for a kernel file? :unsure:

Who knows? :dubbio:

Try and see, but be warned that it is entirely possible that the system will be botched, so have handy a TESTED recovery/restore solution for the OS.

I would rather check if - by any chance - in your TuneUp program (whatever  it is) the path and/or name of the "source" kernel is hardcoded and hexedit it to point to the 4 GB patched kernel.

As a side note, IF the question is a different one, i.e. "How to change XP boot screen?" then there are different answers, possibly around here:

http://reboot.pro/topic/291-winbuilder-051-beta-4/page-3#entry2585

http://reboot.pro/topic/339-boot-logo-for-winbuilders-pe-build-post-ideas-here/

or maybe try another tool that works differently (and at least in theory "better"):

Start looking for it around here:

https://web.archive.org/web/20060715224654/http://www.stardock.com/products/bootskin/

(to have an idea of the story behind it)

Then, this is current:

I have no idea as to where the bitmap of TU kernel is getting stored. what is the difference between 1033 and 3082 ?

When I launch the TU kernel I get to see the second picture below but only 3GB of RAM :angry:

I can send you the TU kernel if you want to check it out by yourself....
