[How To] Multi-boot DVD Guide


Recommended Posts

Thanks alot, why the hell i dont think on this.

Thanks alot again, and again and for the great guide you have made.

I have made a .cmd file where it download all update from microsoft, will you have it. ??

Oh yes, i believe i understand your question now. If you change CatalogSubDir="\i386\svcpack" to CatalogSubDir="\i386" just edit your svcpack.inf from






For example :)

I added too: IE7 with nlite + Directx 9 + Codec Pack + Java 6 And WMP 11.

Keep in mind that the the RyanVM update pack is the first thing you should do to your source. Use before anything else.

If that's not the case, then it seems you have some bad reference to a drive that isn't there. Don't know exactly what it is, but I'd say some of you CMD files (if you have some) has a reference to something other than C:\ (or the drive you'r installing to).

Not exactly sure, but take a look at your CMD files and check for errors. Hope it helps

Hi guys. I'm using this guide to streamline our SOE Build process and hopefully save our Field Service agents some time when rebuilding machines from scratch. I've been able to use these instructions to make a dual boot CD, which creates 2 different versions of our Windows XP CD by duplicating the source files for different installations. My unattend answer file uses the runonceex method to install our applications, and as such I'm unsure if it's really compatible with the instructions. I'd rather use the same DVD to build all four versions of our SOE, as they are all windows XP service pack 2 based. I've attempted to make setup call the correct batch file to make the registry entries in runonceex by using the .TAG file method, in order to differentiate between each SOE version.

The issue I'm having, is I've followed the instructions for creating the TAG file, however setup isn't creating the file at all.

My winnt.sif file is as follows:


DetachedProgram="cmd.exe /c @ECHO something>%SystemDrive%\DTPR.TAG"

I know setup is calling the winnt.sif file to do the Windows installation, as setup does not ask me any questions - and all the options are configured correctly in the operating system after installation, however setup is still not creating the .TAG file as required. The winnt.sif file is being placed in the PRO1 folder as suggested... Any suggestions?

Hello dunkie12 :hello:

The problem is very simple... You have DetachedProgram="cmd.exe /c @ECHO something>%SystemDrive%\DTPR.TAG" instead of DetachedProgram="%SystemRoot%\System32\cmd.exe /c @ECHO something>%SystemDrive%\XPPRO.TAG". Hope it helps ;)
