Setup "freezing" on GUI mode

Recommended Posts

First of all, i've searched and i've only found 1 entry regarding this problem:

http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=8488&hl=

i have tried cancelling the network, yet that failed, so i am opening this thread.

This is my first time creating an unattended install, so I'm assuming i have made an error.

When i load the setup from the boot(I use Virtual PC to test it) all works fine, text mode copys the files over, and copys my files i have set in $OEM$ folder too.

Then the usual reboot, GUI mode occurs, although as it seems everything is working fine it isnt. all the animations are working, there is no sign for a freeze. But no matter how long you leave it on, i have tried for hours it does not continue with the installation. It is stuck at the T-39 point there are no progress bars appering at all like they are supposed to and i do not recieve any error of any kind.

Version in subject:

Windows XP Proffesional build 2600

What have i changed:

- Slipstreamed SP2 into a original installation, build 2600

- Slipstreamed hotfixes with the RyanVM packs and included the WMP10 addon pack

- Created the basic unattended setup

- set 2 drivers, Ethernet card and USB Cable modem to install using the winnt.sif

- installed Office 2003, using advanced setup, and a couple more programs, all using RunOnceEx

- Applied the UXtheme.dll replacement using nLite

- Changed Setup billboard (From a source linked from the forum)

- Changed boot screen(installed by RunOnceEx)

- Added theme files to Windows\Resources\Themes using $OEM$\$$\Resources\Themes

- Applied the theme to be default using winnt.sif

Also the contents of the files i edited:

I'd appreciate any help with this, thank you.

Please note just for testing if it's the virtual machine running badly, i loaded my original CD unchanged right out of my cd drive and tried installing, it worked perfectly.

All of my changes were based on http://unattended.msfn.org/index.htm

Without reading everything in detail, this is my guess: disconnect the USB cable modem during setup, connect it AFTER you're logged in.

EDIT: or put a router in between.

EDIT2: and this is also incorrect:

Thanks for the quick reply, i'll try that.

By the way i believe that was made from posting as it dosent appear in my file.

Update: it didn't work, i'm trying to start all over testing each step, if it works hopefully i'll find the problem that way.
