You are probably using a remastered CD or whatever...
Simply delete or edit your winnt.sif file which is located in i386 directory then reburn CD.
Obviously you'll need another PC and bit of knowledge working with ISO images, use "powerISO", is good.
or simply borrow your friends Win CD.
Hope it helps,

Inf file txtsetup sif corrupt or missing status 256


64-bit central processing unit is one that can support a higher amount of system resources than a 32-bit counterpart.
It has the ability to both recognize and use more amounts of available system memory to go along with its faster processing speeds.
If you want to install a 32-bit operating system on a computer with a 64-bit processor, you can--but you won't be taking full advantage of what your system has to offer you.

Place the installation disc for your 32-bit operating system in your computer's disc drive.
This can be one that you've purchased, as in the case of Microsoft's Windows operating system, or one that you've downloaded from the Internet, in the case of the Linux operating system.
Shut down your computer. Once completely off, turn it back on again.

Click "Next" to continue through your 32-bit operating system's setup program.
You will be asked to read the "TOS," or terms of service.
This is important legal information that you should read in detail, as it informs you of exactly what you're agreeing to by installing this operating system.

Specify any settings changes you want to make to the way your operating system is installed.
From these screens you can also input personal information into your operating system, such as your name or business information, which will save you the trouble of having to do it later when you install utilities.
Click "Install." The 32-bit operating system's setup program will format your hard drive, erasing all data on it.
It will then place the necessary operating system files on your computer.
This can take an hour or more depending on the operating system being used.
Once this process is finished, allow your computer to automatically restart.

How to do Fast and unattended setup of OS


Here I have an Idea for primary setup of a large lab quickly. Suppose you have to setup a lab where have more than twenty or thirty system but must setup it quickly. At that time if you don't have enough CD Rom drive or not enough OS installer CD then the task will take a long time. To save time at the same moment I like to prepare an unattendent operating system installation. Before this task I must check for presence of some requirement. Verify for unattended Installation: To perform an unattended installation from a CD-ROM, the following conditions must be met:The computer must support booting from a CD Rom The unattended answer file must be renamed to Winnt.sif and copied to a floppy disk so Setup can access it. So must need a floppy disk drive.The answer file must contain a valid [Data] section. This is explained later in this article. Before installation it has some conditions:

1> the installation is limited to a single partition.

2> you cannot specify third-party drivers during Setup Prepare For an Unattended Installation:

To prepare your computer for an unattended installation from a CD-ROM, I've followed these stepsFirst I've created a Folder in local drive & shared it. Then I create setup manager.I install Setup Manager by following these steps:I Open My Computer, and then open the SupportTools folder on the Windows XP CD-ROM.Double-click the DEPLOY.CAB file to open it On the Edit menu, click Select All.On the Edit menu, click Copy to Folder.Click Make New Folder. Type the name that you want for the Setup Manager folder, and then press ENTER. For example, type setup manager, and then press ENTER.Click Copy. Open the new folder that you created, and then double-click the setupmgr.exe file. The Windows

Setup Manager Wizard starts: alokerdas_2.jpg

Then I Use Setup Manager to Create an Answer File.
I open the setup manager & go to create a new answer file.
Then I go to the unattended installation & windows version option.
I have selected the fully automated option & create an answer file.


alokerdas_3.jpg

If you want Windows Setup to delete all partitions on the hard disk and to create a new partition, you must include the Repartition command in the Winnt.sif file. Under [Unattended], insert a new line, and then type "Repartition=Yes"
If you omit this line, you are prompted for the installation partition.

Add a [Data] section with the following entries to the unattended answer file:
Unattended Install=Yes - Value must be set to "yes"
MSDos Initiated=No - Value must be set to "no" or Setup stops during the graphical portion of Setup

Auto Partition=1 - If the value is set to 1, the installation partition is automatically selected. If the value is set to 0 (zero) you are prompted for the installation partition during the text portion of Setup.
Save the unattended answer file as Winnt.sif on a floppy disk.
Insert the Windows CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then insert the floppy disk into the floppy disk drive.
Change the boot order in the CMOS so that the CD-ROM is first in the list.
Restart your computer. When Setup is started from the CD-ROM, the Winnt.sif file located on the floppy disk will be used to complete the unattended installation.

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
002_LAN
003_audio
004_display
005_monitor
006_modem
007_USB
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

DON'T
add an extra semi-colon at the end, it might fail !!!

OemPnPDriversPath=\Drivers\001_chipset\;\Drivers\002_LAN\;\Drivers\003_audio\;\Drivers\004_display_2003\;\Drivers\004_display_2004\;\Drivers\005_monitor\;\Drivers\006_modem\;\Drivers\007_USB\
DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore
NonDriverSigningPolicy=Ignore
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.

[GuiUnattended]
AdminPassword="" <------- this can be encrypted using sysprep
EncryptedAdminPassword=No
OEMSkipRegional=1
TimeZone=85
OemSkipWelcome=1
ProfilesDir="C:Documents and Settings" <------ you can change this

[UserData]
ProductKey=xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx
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.

[Data]
AutomaticUpdates=yes

[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

e07da17.jpg

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

WINNT.SIF
[Unattended]
UnattendSwitch
= Yes

[Display]
AutoConfirm = 1

OOBE.IN_
[
StartupOptions]
Offline = 1
Registration = 1
ScreenResolutionCheck = 0

[Options]
IntroOnly = 0
NoIspPreconfig = 1
JoinDomain = 0
AdminPW = 0
SkipAutoUpdate = 1

[UserInfo]
Identity000="You"

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

I want to do a clean install of Winodws XP sp3 on a Acer 5515 laptop computer. What are the instructions I need to follow to have this done by me?


The best way is to use the factory reset option this will revert you laptop back to the way it was before you started using it.

I think is ALT + F10 during the bootup process.

If this fails I recommend that you use a Windows XP boot CD with SP3 slipstreamed, you can use nLite to do this, if you use have a USB floppy drive you can use a winnt.sif file on it you can add your OEM licence if you dont have a floppy then you can add this file to your I386 folder and burn a new install CD.

Use Nero Boot CD menu option and make sure that you set the screen as per this screen dump otherwise it wont work. Use Mode 2/XA for maximum CD-drive compatibility.

Download the required boot image file HERE

Minimum Required for Windows XP SP3 copy and paste this into a file named winnt.sif, replace the xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx with your valid Licence key I suggest that you check it first HERE fill in the rest your self and save it. You can add much more to this SIF file search the internet for more HERE is a great link for you to start with
