am trying to use the boot image created by isobuster that i used to make my "xp slipstreamed with Sp1 cd" that is in the directory H:\.

realise that i am probably doing something really silly, but am only playing at this and do not really have any real computer knowledge apart from the odd building/upgrading

had a bash burning files in cdroot directory in nero but at the end of the install got the error message

"windows cannot find C:\install\hotfixes\hotfixes.cmd"

so obviously there is something missing, will have to sleep on it, bound to have missed something

cheers

cheers for the reply, located the file, changed the file to read

BOOTIMGFILE=H:\FILESCD\BOOT

will see if this works

cheers again

darrellw

"cdboot - cannot boot code 5"

thought i might aswell start a new post as most of the problems with previous post now sorted thanks to swampy.

was having problem burning cd but changed line in config to read

BOOTIMGFILE=H:\FILESCD\BOOT

this sorted out my burning the cd error but now getting error message when trying to boot from the cd

"cannot boot code 5"

any suggestions??????????

cheers for the reply, just showing my ignorance but managed to burn the files in nero by making a bootable cd using the bootimage file from isobuster, after extracting the iso image via isobuster.

will see whether this installs the hotfixes or not.

to correct my earlier mistake should the line read

BOOTIMGFILE=H:\FILESCD\BOOT\XPCDBOOT

please correct me if i am wrong as i say i am really new to this side of the game, and to be quite honest have yet to get the hang of stuff like this

appreciate your help

managed to sort out getting the cd to boot, (another post) but now getting this error message

"windows cannot find c:\install\hotfixes\hotfixes\.cmd"

know that i have probably once again missed out something really simple, but cannot locate any info on the above.

here is a copy of my config settings

still having problems getting the cd created by xpxreate to be bootable so deleted the instruction to boot from the file and am currently xtracting with isobuster and burning with nero, any ideas

@darrellw: A quick look at your post shows that your XPCREATE file structure is amiss, and that your XPCREATE.INI file is not that shipped with XPCREATE. Use the standard procedures, and try a minimal CD, using only thies files listed on the Current Hotfixes page.

Unless you know what you are doing ... there is no reason to be modifying the files and directory strutures as you have done ...

@All: Please include the LOGFILES.CAB file in the NEWFILES directory instead of pasting the log file into the post.

cheers for the replies, managed to get rid of my latest error message

"windows cannot find C:\install\hotfixes\hotfixes.cmd"

thanks to alanoll, but still not installing sp1 or any of the hotfixes.

with regard to the other points, would this be better

[XPCREATE]

XPSOURCE=E:\

BOOTIMGFILE=H:\FILESCD\BOOT

XPISO=XPCREATE.ISO

CDERASE=NO

CDSPEED=24

delete these

CDBURNER=I:

DOCABS=YES

DOSVCPACK=YES

SLIPHF1=YES

SLIPHF2=YES

to be quite honest i really have no idea what i am doing trying this project as i have no real computer knowledge.

reason i added these lines in was an attenpt to get the installation to install the hotfixes

i have tried searching this forum and the web in an attempt to find a really good guide that explains/illustrates EXACTLY how to do this. the guides supplied are to be quite honest incomplete and i have no idea how to sort out why i cannot get it to work.

cheers for all the assistance

darrellw

not sure what you mean by

"@All: Please include the LOGFILES.CAB file in the NEWFILES directory instead of pasting the log file into the post.

how does the xp installation know where the hotfix files???????

do i need to use $OEM$ and the like which are part of "MSFN Unattended method" which i assumed to be separate to the XpCreate method of adding hotfixes???

cheers again

umm....

did you even LOOK at his site? and LOGFILES.CAB is the file XPCReate makes after the process, and located in the NEWFILES directory inside where you executed XPCreate.

greenmachine.msfnhosting.com

make a minimal WORKING installation before going any farther. Before adding winnt.sif or anything. Just do what his site tells you, AND THEN add to it. You're not putting the hotfix files where his website is telling you, you're trying to add them yourself. Just follow his site with regards to Hotfixes and you'll be fine.

Sounds like Alanoll's been reading too many of my posts: he's starting to sound like me! XPCREATE don't know nothin': it is looking for files where YOU were supposed to put them. Like the man said: follow the minimal steps, listed on the site, and if that does not work, attach LOGFILES.CAB to your post, explaining exactly what went wrong.
