How to do raid drivers and hotfixes correctly.

Recommended Posts

At any rate I could easily add some commands to clean it up nice and tidy. Thanks I had not looked at it.

Your script is fine: this stuff should just be included with any other house-keeping scripts that are running near the end of the install. I know, they tend to leave a lot of tid-bits hanging around ... but not on my watch!

Right that was were I was thinking of adding them. Also did you nitice any side affects to deleting these files? Do you do it by hand? or do you have a script that does it alread? Also if it is a script is it automatic in that you dont need to add each new hotfix?

Sorry for the image, anyway in the screen error I have "Invalid program arguments were specified" and then there is a list of the command line switches, /l, /z, /n,....

ah ok that is what I was thinking. You need to make sure and seperate them into the proper directories. I explain this in the begining of this thread.

Regarding the left-over .log and .tmp files: Till now, I have just manually deleted everything that looked superfluous, and that includes any text or temp files that were not "system locked" in C:\Windows\. Never had a problem. But I did just add the command to delete all logs (%SYSTEMROOT%\*.log) and temp (%SYSTEMROOT%\*.tmp). Except for SchedLgU.txt, which is locked, I've never kept any of them very long.

Igor: Did your error image/window have "Windows Setup Error" as a title for the pop-up box? And at which point does it occur? I have a similar problem with hotfix Q817778. Could be related...

Yes, it's the same error and it occur nearly at the end of setup

it just means that you have the hotfix in the wrong setup folder when you run do.cmd.

do you delete all the $###########$ folders also?

If you mean all the $NTUninstall????????$, I used to, as well as the uninstall entries in the registry. No need to now: with the "no uninstall" switch (/n ?) neither those folders nor the reg. entries should be created.

On the other hand, I think the problem Igor is having is not what you think. He says it happens near the end of setup, and I assume he means XP setup, and not the CD preperation. I have the same error everytime I try to install the update KB817778. The give-away is the windows title: Windows Setup Error. It is either the program itself (KB817778.exe) or, more likely, the update.exe that is contained in the hotfix. I've tried to install it with many different switches, and always come up with an error, unless I install directly from Windows Update. Furthermore, though there in a "no uninstall" switch, it refuses to install without leaving its uninstall routines/reg. entries. And even though it generates an error, the setup appears successful, though I have not tested the MS P2P stuff. I am surprised that no one else has trouble with this update. For the moment, I just put it on the back burner, as it is not critical. The most anoying part, is that the error messaeg says unsupported switch and gives a list of valid switches. Of course, the switches used were all in the list ... Go figure

Yes Isee there were afew for me also that can not be slipstreamed like this. For instance if that is hte hotfix for windows media player 9 well of course it has to be installed first before you can install a hot fix for it. so it will have to be installed after you get into windows and after wmp9 is installed.
