Well not really something you’re doing wrong… more of a shortcoming on my part…

Because I don’t know anything about python (I think that is the engine that produces the web interface), configurations to my version have to be made manually…
You create the installation in the normal UDA… then you copy the files to my UDA and edit some configuration files

You could try to follow the instructions at:

BUT i am declaring right now that I have not used these instructions in like forever…

I think the problem stems from the fact that the orgUDA uses “/var/public/tftproot” as its home directory and I use "/var/public/smbmount/DISK2”. So the web interface tries to change the wrong file or it doesn’t exist anymore or something along does lines…
To sum up:
1. you need to make the install in the orgUDA
2. copy the WINXP directory away from it
3. copy the relevant files from the tftproot directory:
(its been a long time, don’t pin me to the wall if I’m off a bit)

4. create in AviadsUDA a directory for it (e.g. duch)
5. copy the WINXP directory into it
6. add in the tftp configuration these lines:
7. edit the menu system to use the duch.0 file (look at the ris.cfg file)
8. tell me if you got it… :)

Alright with your instructions and that link to the other page helped me alot further.
Whenever I choose my windows image from the ris menu it get's bootd in my language and all, but when it needs to start I get the following message:

INF-file txtsetup.sif has been damaged or is missing.

I copied my xp directory from the tftproot directory aswell as the:

into the DISK2 mount.

The XP directory is in a folder called Dutch in the Disk2 folder.

I've put it this way in the tftpd.map file:


and in the menu file it's:

LABEL xpfeb
MENU LABEL WinXP pro NL - windows XP Professional (SP3) Februari 2009
KERNEL xpfeb.0

I've added it to the smb file by:

browsable = true
read only = no
guest ok = yes
path = /var/public/smbmount/DISK2/Dutch/

and rebooted samba.

And last in my sif file I've changed the links:

OriSrc = "\\\Dutch\WINXP\I386"
SetupSourceDevice = "\Device\LanmanRedirector\\Dutch\WINXP"

In which is the ip of the uda server.

Due to the modded menu you have to add new OS'es to the menu manualy.
Look inside the menus dir in REMINST2

txtoem.sif could be missing because of letter capialization or yet anothe missing rule in tftp.map

have a look at how the HEB xp is configured... you are close....
good luck
(sorry i can bring up my VM to see the files and point you in the right direction, but i am staying as a guest right now, and i dont have acsses to all my stuff)

Sorry you guys, UDA is no longer a project I participate in and I actually don’t even know if I have a copy of my version.

Clean unmodified UDA, tested on 2 machines. I'm brazilian, my testsmachine is a pt-br xp sp3 and the second machine, a Windows 2008 server machine both using Vmware Workstation 6.5 on tests.

Why all the spam in here? Where is the moderator? Isn't this about UDA anymore?

Are you still developing your version of UDA at this point?
