Issues emerging while slipstreaming. . .

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by Tony Sperling, Feb 10, 2007.

  1. O.K. - nearly there, however the 'HowTo' in this link (courtesy of Theo):

    http://maximumpc.com/2005/01/how_to_slipstre.html

    in Step 3. Says:

    Open the folder to which you copied your Windows XP CD (C:\xpsetupcd) and
    create a subfolder called $OEM$. Then, create a subfolder of $OEM$ called $1
    and a subfolder of $1 called drivers. The resulting path should be
    C:\xpsetupcd\$OEM$\$1\drivers.

    Later, in step 5, this is referenced as:

    You'll need to customize the OemPnPDriversPath line by entering the path to
    the INF file for your RAID/SATA driver (for instance if your drivers are in
    C:\xpsetupcd\i386\$OEM$\$1\drivers\RAID use:
    OemPnPDriversPath=drivers\RAID\FastTrack\WinXP).

    I tend to think the second version should be correct - any comments?



    Also, the text only deals with the driver consisting of only 'one' SYS
    file - mine has two, and as I recall, both where listed as (Required) when I
    installed the last time. The text also only deals with one instance of the
    CPI/VEN_ description, while making a note about inserting all instances
    (which I did). There are five - does this mean that I should insert those
    five ID's twice, each for the two SYS files?

    I hope someone has this in fresh memory - but for these minor
    inconsistencies, I am ready to burn!

    I really can't give you a good answer since I haven't played
    with Maximum's procedure recently. I did build a couple CDs
    that worked, but my current motherboard has the SATA IDE
    option in the BIOS (SATA or RAID) and I don't need to use F6
    anymore.

    Another possibility is nLite at:
    http://www.nliteos.com/nlite.html It lists 'Driver
    integration' as one of their features and it's menu driven.
    Actually, with nLite you can do both the SP4 integration
    and driver integration.

  3. I might do that, I tried 'nLite' once and it had many tricks - it finishes
    by producing your ISO for you, and you can configure it to use tweakui
    settings and lots of useful stuff. I thought at the time it had weak
    documentation and a somewhat confusing interface much along the line of what
    I'm confronted with at the moment - 'questions', and then I didn't even had
    the RAID to consider. But you are right - I should probably do that!

    Tony,

    I just got this working myself. I used an alternate set of instructions
    from Maximums. The correct OEM path is divers\RAID assuming that this is the
    folder where the drivers are located. Also, be sure to use the makecab
    utility to compress the .sys files before you put them in the I386 folder.
    BTW, I also put them in the AMD64 folder. I don't know your configuration so
    I can not advise on the TXTSETUP.SIF file. I have a Foxconn Motherboard with
    an AMD 4600 cpu

    Hope this helps some.
