Install Freezes When Installing Devices.

Recommended Posts

Everything goes just fine until the "Installing Devices" message displays during the installation of my custom Windows XP CD. Here is a look at my WINNT.SIF file.

It's probably just because I don't have quotes around my driver inst. paths... but tell me what you think.

P.S.

Should I put quotes around ALL the values?

Your OemPnPDriversPath is way too long. The length limit is something small like 128 characters. One option would to be manually edit hivesys.inf. But i recommend shortening the driver list. It would be helpful if you posted the log files, setuperr.log, setupapi.log, setupact.log. It would be helpful to know what error msg you get.

Yes, you should have quotes at the start and the end:

OemPnPDriversPath="Drivers\Nvidia;Drivers\creative\Drivers\WIN2K_XP;Drivers\soyo\audio;drivers\soyo\raid;Drivers\soyo\nic\WINXP;Drivers\soyo\agp\

R112_Logo\AGP\WINXP;drivers\soyo\agp\R112_Logo\USB\Win2K_XP;drivers\logitech\keyboard\Win2K_XP;drivers\logitech\mouse\Win2K_XP"

I've also removed the trialling slashes before every semi-colon.

Gosh - I think the limit has been increased to 4096 characters since Windows 2000. Will need to check up on that again to be sure.
