Multiboot CD for all versions of OEM XP Home ?

Postby stevekong04 » Tue Apr 20, 2010 12:13 am

Hi, I have created using nlite all OEM XP Home SP3 versions of various brands eg. Acer, Dell, HP, Compaq ?

Instead of having individual discs, can I combine all into one multiboot CD, so
that when I boot up, I can choose which version to install ?

I have been experimenting with this PP release RC 9 but I keep getting a BSOD when booting from the disc created.

I have went through the forum but there seems to have little documentation.

Experts, please advise .

For multi-boot OEM installs, I recommend using my oemscan addon.
I just updated it to 1.8.5.1.

Also, there is a bug with PowerPacker if any quotes exist in the [floppyfiles.*] section of dosnet.inf.
Code: Select all
[FloppyFiles.3]
* change entries like this: *
d1,ntdll.dll,"system32\ntdll.dll"
* to this: *
d1,ntdll.dll,system32\ntdll.dll

When I start building a "new" update disk, I create folders and keep transferring the installs at different stages so I can look back and see where it went wrong. I had a lot of issues in the beginning so I keep track of the order of integration. This is just MY order, but it works every time for me.

-integrate sp2 (if needed)
-integrate sp3 (if needed)
-integrate post sp3 update pack ONLY
-integrate DX9, WMP11, IE7, dotnet, etc
-integrate oemscan (only on OEM of course)

I cannot remember the specific issues I had, because ever since I started building I have followed this basic "route". I actually name my folders exactly what is shown above, minus the ( ). I dont know if this will help you, but if you are lost give it a shot. When you need to go back and do updates to your disk, you will probably find this method easier :)

WHAT From what I am seeing you need the retail version, if you are like most of us here who rebuild there systems all the time and upgrade alot. The OEM version will not allow this???
