Post RVM Integrator with nLite.

Post by masterm » Tue Jul 18, 2006 5:14 am

Is it possible to use nlite to integrate drivers after integration with RVM integrator? Or should I first integrate the drivers and then use RVM to integrate ryans service pack. Or alternatively just use nLite

I would try integrating drivers after the integrator. I don't know if it will work or not... but I would think it would work fine.

I tend to use nLite first to add/remove stuff, then I use the integrator to add update/addon packs. I haven't tried the other way around because I don't know if nLite would have problems with an updated install.

I haven't tried it myself but I don't think there'd be any issues. Just look at the order that nlite does it's business....slipstream sp2...integrate update...integrate addons....removes stuff...unattended setup...etc.

I think the only problems that arise are when you try to integrate an addon AFTER you integrate drivers.

Stuff should be removed last. It only makes since. If you remove stuff first... the updatepack is bound to add some of those files back to the disk... and that defeats the purpose.

Not being an nLite user, I tend to do the UpdatePack, addons, tweaks/patches (in addon format), verify build, integrate removals (test build again) and then impliment driver integration/drivers from cd while implimenting my winnt.sif file and $OEM$ folder. Note: I tend to do each in seperate stages. IE: I'll integrate the ipdate pack, restart and integrate addons, restart and etc.

For testing, nothing beat's VM. Granted, it's not going to catch _everything_ but it will throw up the more likely errors to occur (like txtsetup not able to copy blah and stuff.)

Add stuff with integrator, pull stuff with nlite, add drivers with BtS, generate ISO.

This is how I've been doing it for since the RyanVM Update Pack came into existence. And it's generally accepted as the best method as well.

Choose Destination directory with the RVM Integrator and save 90 plus megs, this is enough for me to slip BTS Driverpacks, just choose the Alphabet letter that corresponds to your paticular hardware: A, B or C, dont use all 3

There is a removal addon on this forum I made that will do that for you.

How much space on the iso is saved by weeding out the upgrade files??
