F6 fails to copy SCSI driver

Recommended Posts

I have created a DVD-rom with Shell menu and two operating systems (winxp sp2 / win2k sp4)

This works fine without loading additional SCSI drivers.

When I try to load SCSI drivers (from floppy disk) during text based setup part (F6) it loads the driver correctly. But when Windows starts copying installation files it cannot find the SCSI drivers on the floppy disk.

This is working fine when I use the original Windows XP SP2 CD-ROM.

This option is default to No but if you are using the $OEM$ Distribution Folders then it needs to be set to Yes, so that Setup regards this installation as a distribution and copies these files over to the system drive. This occurs at the end of Text-mode Setup.

Having OemPreinstall set to Yes will also prevent you from loading RAID/SATA drivers from a floppy disc during textmode setup.





IN winnt.sif


OemPreinstall = "No"



Arguments = "/C START C:\WINDOWS\system32\OemPreinstall.CMD"

In txtsetup.sif


OemPreinstall.cmd = 1,,,,,,,2,0,0

CMDOW.EXE = 1,,,,,,,2,0,0

In OemPreinstall.cmd

cmdow @ /HID

@echo off
