Alternative Boot folders


Recommended Posts

I have followed the instructions on the flyakite website, and all my alternatives boot, but they don't seem to read the winnt.sif files, because nothing is automated, even when I have them set for unattended.



   AdminPassword=<encrypted password>

   OrgName="All in One DVD XP Pro"



AutoUpdate = off
Dialer = off
Hypertrm = Off

DefaultStartPanelOff = Yes
DefaultThemesOff = Yes


Profiles = WindowsFirewall.TurnOffFirewall

Mode = 0

If anything is obvious, please let me know, because my DVD is so close to working.

Well, it's a multiboot disc, so the guide says to put it in the boot folder for that option. I don't want this one to do an OEM Preinstall, but should I still make that switch "yes" and just not have an $oem dir in parallel?




-------no winnt.sif


-------winnt.sif with Unattended, but not OEM Pre


-------winnt.sif with Unattended and OEM Pre

Ah, ok. I think I understand. Though you'll probably need to have more directories if you plan on having a preinstall and setup on the same disc. Even if you don't do a preinstall, the $OEM$ directory is parsed. And it must be in the same directory as i386. So you'll need a preinstall directory and non-preinstall directory for each version of Windows (one with and one without a $OEM$ directory). Everything else seems to be in the right place though, so I'm not sure why your winnt.sif isn't being parsed.

Just an update. It ended up that the reason it wasn't parsing the winnt.sif was because I forgot to hex edit the SETUPLDR.BIN to point to the new boot folders. Now it seems to be working fine. Thanks for the help though.
