I don't think it's because of your winnt.sif

It's because setup can't register a .dll (rsaenh.dll).

Maybe the source somehow got corrupted?

Have you tried making a new CD/DVD or tested in VMWare/VirtualPC first?

Yeah, thats what i thought orriginally, but i've recopied my source now, and checked that the orgnal source still works. The only difference betweent the two iso's is the winnt.sif .

I'm testing in MS Virtual PC, and have tested, with all additions/modification, Winnt.sif only, and plain source only. Only the Plain source worked, so i think it's the WINNT.SIF.

Cheers

Plus,

Originally i was using nlite, but then switched to maually adding the files etc. Still only the original sourceworks?

I'm guessing you have something under [COMPONENTS]?

Well, went through your winnt.sif of what you posted and it looks good to me.

This is how I'd write it though, but shouldnt produce error if it differs.

I have seen problems like this occour due to cd being burned too fast.

EDIT: Obviously this means there should be no problems in VM...

@druiddk, Hmm, well i'm mounting the iso directly using Virtual PC so i don't think it could be burn speed as such?

@BoardBade, Just trying your .sif, will report back. I would be surprised if putting the .sif in alphanumeric order helps. Still, if it does, allanol might like to know, as i just followed the unnatened guide order!?

Cheers

OK, Tested BoardBabes .sif, Same Error's: See Below

Error:
Setup could not reigster the OLE Control C:\WINDOWS\System32\rseanh.dll
because of the following error:
DllRegisterServer Returned Error 2147943405 (800703ed)

***

Error:
Setup could not reigster the OLE Control C:\WINDOWS\System32\dssenh.dll
because of the following error:
DllRegisterServer Returned Error 2147943405 (800703ed)

***

Error:

The signature for Windows XP Professional Setup is invalid. The error code is
80096001.

A system-level error occurred while varifying trust.

***

Fatal Error:

Setup failed to install the product catalogs. This is a fatal error. The setup log files should contain more information.

***

That's the full error before stop. Using BartPE to look at the error log, there are no further details that i can recognise as important.

Any Ideas?

Did you create all corresponding drives (C, D, E) in your virtual machine? If not, try changing your Documents & Settings folder to the same drive that you install windows on (for virtual machine only, of course). It would work on real machine, however.

The order of the content in winnt.sif does not matter at all. Also wether you have a space between the "=" and value should not matter. Though I changed something else, lets see if you can find it :P

Anyway... As the previous posts I must agree I doubt the problem is winnt.sif.

Well, i had noticed two other changes,

AutomaticUpdates=1
OrgName=""

I'de used;

AutomaticUpdates=Yes
OrgName="N/A"

though, in the reference file the winnt.sif apparently will take either of those options. Still no luck so far. I have created all the nessesary drives before trying the install, however i'm not sure which drive is being recognised as the CDROM so i'll check. I'll be working on this again this evening, hopefully it's as simple as the drive is being labeld incorectly in windows setup, i'm never sure how windows assigns drive letters during setup, and infact it seems t differ somewhat per install sometimes?!?!

I got that last error message about the "setup log files should contain more info". For me, copying the folders seperately (especially the I386 folder), solved the problem. For some reason, things got lost or corrupted when trying to copy everything at once. Have you checked all the folders/files on your XPCD to make sure they're identical in size to the originals?

Besides the creation of drives, you should also check that all the drives that you use (D & E) are formatted, 'cause windows setup cannot automatically format those 2 drives for you (should manually do it).

Thanks a lot for this. It worked like a charm!.

By the way, if anyone wonders, I'd set the program files and the documents and settings to drive d:. I created this drive during the installation, but I didn't fotmatted it. So I went to recovery console, typed " format d: /fs:ntfs ", then I restarted the setup, and walla!. It worked.

Thanks a lot zzzz....

Sorry for the kick, but I seem to have a similar problem.

Couple of days a go started to update my XP x64 disc. Usually downloaded all hotfixes sepperatly and used nLite to integrate them.

This time I ran into a recent update pack from 5eraph at the RyanVM forum.

The winnt.sif I already had, that worked (till now), corrupted the installation when I used that updatepack (both on clean as partially updated disc).

Errors are similar as mentioned in the 1st post here.

Errors: http://www.ravenslair.nl/files/setup_error_log.txt

clean SP2 install: http://www.ravenslair.nl/plaatjes/xp_x64_sp2_clean.jpg

with the post SP2 updatepack: http://www.ravenslair.nl/plaatjes/xp_x64_s..._updatepack.jpg

Anyway, after lot's of testing, trying and ruling out (like comparing my installation source to 5eraph's, 100% match) things, the winnt.sif appears to be the cause.

Since without it, the installation, of XP X64 SP2 including 5eraph post SP2 updatepack, goes/works perfectly.

Any idea what's wrong with it?
