Recommended Posts

hi tomcat!

another challenge for you *g*

when I install win2k with RC (through hfanswer.ini)

he complains about a missing winnt32.exe or wrong winnt32.exe

this happens after first reboot (at T-13?)

when configuring network and other stuff ...

installation through network and unattended.sourceforge.net

It's possible that a network install can't find winnt32.exe. It isn't copied to the hard disk.

Add this to TXTSETUP.SIF:

[sourceDisksFiles]

WINNT32.EXE = 1,,,,,,,,3,3

And this to DOSNET.INF:

[Files]

d1,WINNT32.EXE

If that doesn't fix the problem I'm not really sure how to do it. I'll search around...

I looked around a bit:

@ECHO OFF

IF EXIST %SYSTEMROOT%\SYSTEM32\CMDOW.EXE CMDOW @ /HID

Title HFSLIP

FOR %%i IN (C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) DO IF EXIST %%i:\I386\SVCPACK SET HFSLIP=%%i:\I386

START/WAIT %HFSLIP%\winnt32.exe /cmdcons /unattend

START/WAIT MSIEXEC /i %HFSLIP%\SVCPACK\msdrmclient.msi /qn /norestart ALLUSERS=1

START/WAIT MSIEXEC /i %HFSLIP%\SVCPACK\rmclientbackcompat.msi /qn /norestart ALLUSERS=1

%HFSLIP%\updroots.exe %HFSLIP%\authroots.sst

%HFSLIP%\updroots.exe %HFSLIP%\updroots.sst

%HFSLIP%\updroots.exe -l %HFSLIP%\roots.sst

%HFSLIP%\updroots.exe -d %HFSLIP%\delroots.sst

rundll32.exe advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %SYSTEMROOT%\HFSLPGUI\HFSLPGUI.INF,HFSLIPGUI

IF EXIST %SYSTEMROOT%\*.TMP (

ATTRIB -R %SYSTEMROOT%\*.TMP

DEL/Q/F %SYSTEMROOT%\*.TMP

)

EXIT

maybe /cmdcons /unattend /makelocalsource fixes the problem?

i'll try ..

edit

is it possible to edit the file after slipstreaming everything?

The /makelocalsource switch can be added by HFSLIP based on the existence of an entry in HFANSWER.INI but I need to know if it does the job before I insert it. According to the documentation, it is intended to copy the entire source to the hard disk which isn't really what we need...
