By "otherwise working copy" I mean a copy that works and installs correctly. It is not 100% vanilla, because I have a modified usbstor.inf to allow installing onto a USB stick. I don't see that causing a problem.

I'll try with RVMi.

Just tried with RVMi and it works! So it looks like nlite is doing something weird on my setup.
The only issue now is that some of my added drivers in the source image are now throwing up unsigned driver warnings. Is there a way around that?

The following lines in WinNT.sif should prevent those warnings. If you copied that file from a previously nLited source then they should already exist.

Code: Select all

[Unattended]
DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore
NonDriverSigningPolicy=Ignore
The DriverPacks used to employ a workaround that continuously changed a registry setting to achieve this. I don't know how they currently work around it, or how nLite does this other than the aforementioned code in WinNT.sif.

Thanks for that. I seem to have run into another problem, though.
RVMi seems to optimize out the sp2.cab file. The image works, but if I then further modify it to add some drivers or apply a mod to allow installing onto USB removable disks, the install procedure then starts to notice that sp2.cab is missing but is still listed in dosnet.sif, and complains.

Disregard that last bit. I haven't been able to get the error to re-occur after repeating the procedure. The entry still exists in dosnet.sif and sp2.cab is still missing, but the setup doesn't complain about it now.

RVMi merges Driver.cab and SP2.cab when adding an update pack to save space. This includes editing DosNet.inf, DrvIndex.inf and TxtSetup.sif to remove references to SP2.cab. If you are manually editing those files to add your drivers then you should edit the modified files after using an update pack to avoid reintroducing references to SP2.cab.

Microsoft released KB979302 Wednesday which updates MSI.dll and MSIHnd.dll. While this update fixes a long standing problem, it still fails when dealing with certain installers. It will not be included in a future update pack of mine.

However, should anybody decide to slipstream it with nLite I have updated the KB967756_Rollback installer to remove it if necessary.

Hi,

I just wanted to post to thank you for building and maintaining this update pack. XP x64 is a wonderful OS, and I am saddened to see it so neglected by MS. Your efforts have increased its longevity significantly. Now I can have an up-to-date version and integrate AHCI drivers using nlite, and continue to use it on my new machines.

Thank you.

5eraph, your awesomeness knows NO BOUNDS.

I am always interested in how these updates affect the "Winver date", the system build date as shown in the winver dialog.

Can you tell us if this latest update advances this value from your previous work-of-art update packs?

Please accept this follower's THANK YOU, once again, for helping me keep up to date with the very latest and greatest update pack!

Best wishes always from Atlanta, GA.

Thanks again for the compliments, Mark. :)

WinVer.exe reports the kernel build date and branch stored in NTOSKrnl.exe. The last update to this file was released on February's Patch Tuesday, KB977165.

This information is also shown on the desktop for 32-bit XP when the following registry entry is set. On 64-bit XP/2003 the painted desktop information only displays the currently installed service pack level and OS build.

Code: Select all

HKCU,"Control Panel\Desktop","PaintDesktopVersion",0x10001,1

Thank you for your feedback, maur0. It is true that Windows 2003 x64 shares its codebase with Windows XP x64, but several differences still exist between the two operating systems. In regard to the updates you mention:
  • KB926122 - The files in this package (NTDSA.dll, wNTDSA.dll) do not exist in TxtSetup.sif on Windows XP x64 sources and are not installed. This update is specific to Windows 2003.

    The files w03a2409.dll and ww03a2409.dll are resource files that are common to many updates and do not count in these instances. No update exists that solely updates these files. If they need updating, they will be included in another update that requires the updated resources contained therein. Other resource files for which no update specifically exists are w03a3409.dll, ww03a3409.dll, xpsp3res.dll and xpsp4res.dll.
  • KB948496 - This update has been considered previously. It seems to apply to server hardware. The hotfix contains no files to install, only the registry entries described in Method 3 of the KB article.
  • KB971032 - The files necessary for Windows XP x64 are included in the update pack. Additional files for Windows 2003 x64 are not included, but require updating on that operating system: mqads.dll, mqdssrv.dll and mqdssvc.exe.
As mentioned previously in 2008 and 2009, I cannot recommend or support using this update pack on Windows 2003 x64. I do not have a copy of this operating system to test so I can't create an update pack specifically for it.

Hi guys! Long time no see i guess ;)
Question: How can i add QWORD values to registry in x64 xp using reg command(from batch file)? (reg add /?)

I'm sorry for bit off topic, but i dont know where to ask any longer. I've run into a single place in registry which has QWORD registry values (this is xp 64bit after all). I don't desperately need it, but it would be the icing on the cake..
Once i'm done i'm hoping to have a universal setup with tweak files the x64 variants of windows.

Thanks!

I can't find any reference to the QWORD datatype anywhere except in Microsoft's PowerShell documentation. However, since a QWORD (quadruple word) is twice the length of a DWORD (double word), and since a DWORD is nothing more than a bounded binary value, you could try entering it as a BINARY, which has no bounds.

That's just a wild guess, though. :)

Edit:
I just found KB256986 which basically says what I mentioned above.
Microsoft wrote:Data represented by a number that is a 64-bit integer. This data is displayed in Registry Editor as a Binary Value and was introduced in Windows 2000.
The command would be:

Code: Select all

Reg.exe ADD %KEY% /V %VALUE% /T REG_BINARY /D 0123456789abcdef /F

That concurs with what information I have found as well. It does get written correctly with REG_BINARY but of course, it does then say REG_BINARY instead of REG_QWORD. I will just have to do this and see if there are any problems. Keep up the good work btw!

I don't understand how people are able to use this update i.e. the windows installer service is always corrupted, there are other bugs too. But the main one is the windows installer. Half of the programs won't install after installing windows and microsoft updates do not work either etc :(

I retested this issue about 12 times...same result.

I've always used the RVM integrator 1.6 with an original XP pro x64 SP2 cd. I did this on a clean workstation running Win XP pro SP3 (I tried this on x64 system but this made no difference). After the update pack is integrated, I make the ISO and burn it (verify everything too) i.e. no other update packs were used.

Then install on a hard disk from scratch (but same errors occur on virtual machines too)

I just wanted to add that if 5eraph is not able to identify my problem for whatever reason I would be happy to pay/donate to obtain a CD with the update and the IE8 addon (without tweaks). Without a key of course. I don't use this at home but at work xp x64 is installed on about 20 servers and an updated disk would save me a lot of time in trouble shooting.

you are trying to compile from a x86 os. IT's possible, but you need additional steps to do that.

Try copying the files from your source disc to a folder on your hard drive manually, including the files at the root of the disc. Then direct RVMi to use that folder as the source with no Destination Directory. It should then work.

Many times when I have experienced corruption in the creation of customized XP setup media, it was due to one or more of these reasons:


Anti-virus or other security software running
Not starting with a clean (non-nLited/RVM'ed) source
Corrupted update file/bad download
System infection/corruption (have you scanned with 2 or more utilities?)
Rights-related issue (always run as Admin to create setup media)
System/domain policy interfering with setup media generation


I would setup a second PC and try the process there. Fact is, there are WAY too many vectors of infection and many modern malware are stealthy and silent to remain below your radar.

Are you CERTAIN your system is free of all infection, and HOW do you know this? I have special bootable DVD and USB flashdrive media that I can use to check any system with a verifiably clean boot sequence.

System Restore has also saved my bacon when cleansing progs did not work properly. It is amazing how simple and powerful turning back the clock can be for the reliable operation of XP.

I also use XP64Pro and I really like it a LOT, and so far it has held me in good stead and remained clean and reliable, and builds working XP media whenever and however I need.

I use nLite, not RVMI, just for the record, but I will be trying Ryan's program at some point to compare it with my years of using Nuhi's app.

P S - which version of RVMI are we using? Have you tried a different version?

Just trying to help. I know what tech problems can do to your head, and I'm always grateful when someone steps out to give me some help. Let's see if some fresh eyes can bring a new perspective on your issues.

Best wishes from north of Atlanta, GA.

AWESOME!!!!!!! IT WORKS NOW (will be testing it completely tomorrow at work). 5eraph's method was the key. What's annoying is that one could've logically guessed that it was related to that because the ISO's were 743mb, suggesting that the files were not actually integrated i.e. replacing the original ones. But I couldn't figure that out :(

Perhaps this is also related somehow to the unattended setup....which (with nLite) does work but then not really because it always throws unassigned driver errors...EVEN though all the settings are correct (WinNT etc set to ignore...) and no actual drivers or any other modifications are in place...

Thank you very much everyone, REALLY appreciate the input!!!!!!!

Glad I could help. :)

I noticed you're using older packages. A new update pack and IE8 addon should be available in roughly 48 hours, if you're in no hurry to deploy.

Latest Update Pack Working GREAT

Post by mark strelecki » Tue Apr 20, 2010 8:14 am

Just a quick THANK YOU and to say that my Core2 Duo laptop is singing your praises. I had no idea they could DO that.... <grin>

I see the WINVER date of Feb 16, 2010, making this THE latest version of XP you can get anywhere. I LOVE the Clean Install, 'cuz all updates and patches are rolled together and installed all at once so I can really hit the ground running.

I have upgraded this Acer AS6930 with a 120GB Corsair SSD and your updates make it fly (sing?) like a bird. Muchos Gracias, Amigo!

Why must WindowsServer2003-KB942288-v4-x64 hotfix be installed after installing a version of Windows XP x64 with your update packs? Without the hotfix, the Microsoft Installation Files are corrupted. I cannot install anything until I install this hotfix, and I'm wondering why this is so.

I've installed it twice now, with the same issue.

Your problem sounds a lot like michaelvqwerty's, but I need more information to be sure. Please post your RVMi log file or "Last Session.ini" so I can have a look.

It's the same problem...
The same solution applies. :)

Updated to 2010-05_2. Please read the Changelog for full details.

It is important for all to read the Notes section of the current release post, which is quoted below. In summary: If nLite throws errors with this update pack then try temporarily disabling your antivirus product. And MSI.dll has been updated; solutions are available if you experience MSI installation errors.
5eraph wrote:Notes:
  • It has been reported that some antivirus products may interfere with nLite 1.4.9.1 when integrating this update pack and others. nLite may throw one or more errors, including:
    • "H-The process cannot access the file '<SourceDirectory>\SVCPACK.INF' because it is being used by another process."
    • "CabLib Extract ERROR while extracting files from cabinet archive: Failure writing to target file"
    If this occurs, please disable your antivirus product temporarily and try running nLite again on a fresh copy of your source.

    Thank you, Kurt_Aust, for initially reporting and solving this problem with nLite and this update pack. :)
  • An updated version of MSI.dll (KB983280) has been included. Although I have performed some limited testing with this update, previous updates newer than KB967756 were known to cause problems when installing certain software. To revert to KB967756, please use the updated rollback installer or addon.
  • Please see a previous release's bump post regarding blocked updates.
