ntoskrnl mod to XP Post-SP3 Update Pack

Post by Squeeto » Sat Jul 11, 2009 5:22 pm

Hi guys,
If I use the RyanVM Integrator to integrate his Windows XP Post-SP3 Update Pack which includes hotfix KB956572 that will upgrade ntoskrnl.exe to 5.1.2600.5755 and I want to integrate a custom boot screen, should I create an updatepack or an addon for my custom boot screen?

And how do I make the Integrator process Ryans updatepack before my updatepack or addon so that my version doesn't get overwritten?

Or, do I just integrate 2 times to ensure proper order?

Thank you

Wow, 4 days. I thought that this was a no brainer.
Ok, looking through past logs, it seems as though Integrator extracts updates before addons. So I am going with addon.

It is not so simple for me to "try it and see" because I haven't yet got it to work.

Thanks. Actually I got it to work. Making the addon wasn't the problem it was how Windows installs.

So, if anyone finds this post trying to integrate a new boot screen, this is the trick. Your computer only uses one of the 4 kernel files but the Windows installer needs all 4 modified the same way or it hangs\fails.
