Re: setup cannot copy during windows xp sp2...

You may have a corrupted disk. Try and go back to the place you bought it so they can exchange it. It may also very well be a pirated disk, in that case I can't help..Try ignore error and continue installing.Could be a hardware problem, if you have one avaliable try a different hard drive. Think it could also be the RAM, If possible, try taking a stick out at a time and trying to re-install again.

How to Slipstream Drivers on Windows XP using WINNT.SIF

So you have already slipstreamed Service Pack 3 using one of the many tools available I prefer Autostreamer v1.0.33 Its Autopatchers little brother and takes the legwork out of uncompressing and recabbing. I then tend to integrate WMP11 using boooggy's slipstreamer this allow then installation of all associated WMP11 hotfixes.

When all this has been done its a good idea to slipstream all the post SP3 hotfixes to the I386 folder and also copy the WINNT.SIF file that you have created to perform an unattended install with drivers.inf files.

One of the best update packs available is Xables the latest version is v2.0.2 (August 2010) download link HERE this what the pack includes History at the point of posting August 2010 its stands at around 219 post SP3 hotfixes its only missing about 12 hotfixes mainly NET. Framework Service Pack fixes. Plus 12 optional updates you will need to go to the update website to get those if you really want them, or here is a list so you can google them

  1. Update for Windows XP (KB961118)
  2. Update to .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 for the .NET Framework Assistant 1.0 x86 (KB963707)
  3. Security Update for Jscript 5.8 for Windows XP (KB971961)
  4. Update for Windows XP (KB976662)
  5. Security Update for Windows XP (KB981332)
  6. Microsoft Browser Choice Screen Update for EEA Users of Windows XP (KB976002)
  7. Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 Update for Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP x86 (KB982168)
  8. Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 Security Update for Windows 2000 and Windows XP (KB979906)
  9. Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 Security Update for Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003, and Windows XP x86 (KB979909)
  10. Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 Update for Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP x86 (KB982524)
  11. Security Update for .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 and 3.5 SP1 on Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP x86 (KB983583)
  12. Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 8 for Windows XP (KB2183461)
When you have installed this you are ready to copy your WINNT.SIF file to the I386 folder and create the drivers folder in your Windows Source Folder, then use Signets DriverGrabber v0.51b on your existing installation to get all the INF DLL and EXE files that you will need for your driver folders

Create an $OEM$ folder and place inside it a folder called $1 and then another inside that called Drivers then a folders for each driver make sure that you number then to ensure that chipset is always first.

001_chipset <-----this must be first
008_ <------
more folders you need to add to the OemPNPDriverPaths

these are the paths that I have specified in the WINNT.SIF relevant section, you MUST add these lines in the [Unattended] section OR it will fail on you. !!!!

NOTE: The OemPnPDriversPath can't search sub-folders to all the files that Driver Grabber will give you will have to copied them to the relevant numbers root folders, and remove the subfolders for each driver remember that each path is separated by a semi-colon

add an extra semi-colon at the end, it might fail !!!

UpdateInstalledDrivers = Yes <---- this line is critical to make sure

All you need to do to complete this process is change these two sections to suit your OEM Licence and Owner Details.

AdminPassword="" <------- this can be encrypted using sysprep
ProfilesDir="C:Documents and Settings" <------ you can change this

FullName="your name"
OrgName="your organization"
ComputerName=your computer <----- note that there are no "." on this

FINAL NOTE: if you are using OOBE.INI in the either the $OEM$\$$\system32\oobe folder OR a cabbed (use Compression Bin by Jcarle) to create the OOBE.IN_ in the I386 folder, to set up new users (max 6 admins only) then make sure that you don't use these three lines in your WINNT.SIF to avoid any setup errors on the Out of Box Experience.


[Unattended Section]
AutoActivate = Yes

OR you will get a Out of Box Experience Error after the install as these skip the Create User Accounts and Set Up Internet Screens


If you have any other problems add these sections to your OOBE.IN_ and WINNT.SIF files that you have in your slipstreamed I386 folder

= Yes

AutoConfirm = 1

Offline = 1
Registration = 1
ScreenResolutionCheck = 0

IntroOnly = 0
NoIspPreconfig = 1
JoinDomain = 0
AdminPW = 0
SkipAutoUpdate = 1


remember to keep your OOBE.INI file so that you can edit it before you cab it with compression bin or makecab.

Locks up during installation process at a random percentage of completion

If you have sufficient hard disk space, copy SP2 from the CD to the hard disk first and then install it from there.

Xp recovery

You need to download all the drivers installer files from manufacturer website first, and also all the software you want to install automatically with Windows. Then you build a Windows Xp boot CD with all the software setup embedded.

Will not boot to XP

these are some following procedure
do it carefully

XP Repair install Please read carefully and make sure you followed the warning links before initiating the Repair Install. You can print a text version for reference. repair.txt
  1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
  2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
    Windows XP to run on your computer:

    To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

    To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

    To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.
  3. Press Enter to start the Windows Setup. note.gifTo Repair Install, press ENTER
    \r\n'); FP_changeProp(/*id*/'layer1',0,'style.borderStyle','double','style.borderWidth','3px','style.padding','5px','style.backgroundColor','#F9F4D5','style.backgroundImage','url(\'edgbkgnd4.gif\')'); FP_changeProp(/*id*/'layer1',0,'style.visibility','visible')" onclick="FP_changeProp(/*id*/'layer1',0,'style.visibility','hidden')" border="0" width="15" height="21" /> do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
  4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
  5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, END setup. After the reboot read Warning#2!
  6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact. If you get files not found during the copying stage.
    Blaster worm warning: Do not immediately activate over the internet when asked, enable the XP firewall before connecting to the internet. You can activate after the firewall is enabled. Control Panel - Network Connections. Right click the connection you use, Properties and there is a check box on the Advanced page.

  7. Reapply updates or service packs applied since initial Windows XP installation. Please note that a Repair Install using an Original pre service pack 1 or 2 XP CD used as the install media will remove SP1/SP2 respectively and service packs plus updates issued after the service packs will need to be reapplied.
