$oem$/$1/myFolder not copying to hard disk


 Share

Recommended Posts

Apologies but I cannot workout the correct answer.

I want to be able to copy myFolder to the root (c:\) from the install CD and start batch.bat

My CD has the $oem$ at the following dir with myFolder under $1

<CDOM drive>\$oem$\$1\myFolder

this is at the same level as my I386 folder <CDOM drive>\I386

Below is my winnt.sif which must have a problem but I'm going round and round trying to work out what it is

dd shadow

If the 'trick' is in the difference between our listings then I cannot see it. I take it your copies files over from CD to harddrive?

bledd,

I do have upper case $OEM$ on the cd drive file name. Do you have any examples you could post, taking out PIDKEys, etc ?

ddShadow,

I read the link and I'm sure that I have the correct drive paths that is why I am looking more closely at the *.sif. Driving me bananas really.

The root directory structure should look like this:

<CDROM>

\$OEM$

\$1

\MyFolder

\i386

Caps do matter for the $OEM$

I'm using Win2K3 Enterprise. Basically the same as Standard.

Sorry AlbinoRaven,

Are you suggesting that my dir structure should be

<CD ROM>\$OEM$\$1\MyFolder\I386

or all off the root

<CD ROM>\$OEM$

<CD ROM>\$1

<CD ROM>\MyFolder

<CD ROM>\I386

I currently have (hedging my bets)

<CD ROM>\$OEM$\$1\MyFolder

<CD ROM>\I386

<CD ROM>\I386\$OEM$\$1\MyFolder

Ok - that was better.

However,

1. All the file names have been shortened (MS-DOS 16 bit copy thing?). Maybe I should use an XP boot disk instead of a Win98 one.

2. Only the MyFolder1 & MyFolder2 directories were copied <CDROM>\I386\$OEM$\$1\MyFolder1

<CDROM>\I386\$OEM$\$1\MyFolder2

but the sub dirs in MyFolder2 were not copied.

Anyone got any ideas on that?

Sorry all of the formating I did was nuked so the message definately got muddled. It should be

<CD ROM>\$OEM$\$1\Myfolder

<CD ROM>\i386

That's it.

Are you using nLite to compile the iso or are you using WinISO like a file manager?

I find that Win2K3 something works better after running it in the nLite iso creator. It'll even give you the options of picking folders from your local drive and creating the $OEM$\$1 dir structure.

Just noticed that you've got a $OEM$ under your i386 directory.

The $OEM$\$1 directory has to be on the root.

Nothing goes under the i386 directory. If you want something to copy stuff into the winnt directory you use the following.

Cheers!

\$OEM$\$$

Contains files that Win2K Setup copies to the %Windir% (e.g., C:\winnt) folder during installation.

\$OEM$\$$\Help

Contains custom Help files that Win2K Setup copies to the %Windir%\Help folder during installation.

\$OEM$\$$\System32

Contains custom Help files that Win2K Setup copies to the %Windir%\System32 folder during installation.

Yeah,

nLite plus dvdburn.exe (windows toolkit resource) seemed to produce a much better iso image. I left the winnt.sif alone.

I shall carry on hacking away at thsi for a while to see if I can work out why the sub dirs were not carried across.
