Win XP installation.

Postby hkb » Thu Feb 21, 2008 2:49 pm

First thanks for a very interesting and useful application.

I have tried to use it with redhat and win 2003 server without problems.
I am now trying to use it to install a number of WIN XP Professional clients.

I have made an image of the Reinstallation CD which came with the DELL computers we have purchased and configured uda with the images without problems.

Now when I boot the computer and select the ID for the WIN XP prof I get:
"Setup is inspecting your computer's hardware configuration"
and then after 1-2 seconds I get:
INF file XXXX is corrupt or missing, status 21.
Setup cannot continue. Press any key to exit.

Where XXXX is some cryptic letters.

What could be the cause of this? I suspect that some file is missing from the recovery cd although it looks like a standard XP cd.
Unfurtunately I do not have any other versions of XP cds which I could try to use.

Any ideas?

/Henrik

I have now looked at the log and found the following messages which doesn't help me alot.
As you can see from the log it requests a strange filename:

G'Day just adding my 2 cents as I've done the same as hkb and used a Dell ISO for deployment on my companies Dell PCs and the result have been the same.

I had altered the Dell Windows XP build using nLite (http://www.nliteos.com) to add drivers for 4 models of the Dell Latitude line and 2 models of the Dell Optiplex line.
When tested in VMWare the VMs built without a fault, when the ISO generated by nLite was burnt to DVD all the Dells it was tested with installed Windows XP just fine yet we got the error described by hkb in the first post when used with UDA.
Just for the hell of it I tried to build my work laptop which is a Toshiba Satellite A10 from UDA using the same ISO etc and funnily enough this happily went into the Windows setup environment and tried to perform the install (it couldn't continue as it didn't have a suitable network driver for my Toshi to continue).

EDIT: I'm making a new ISO from a volume install CD and will post my results once I'm done.

I think that the problem is in the network card/driver. I've seen the weird filenames before, but if I recall this correctly, there was no real solution. I guess that somehow the network card garbles the request that is done to the UDA. I do not know what the solution for this might be though. If you have lots of time to spare you may want to try setting us a MS RIS server and try it from there... If that works we may be able to work something out for the UDA as well...

Tried a build with a Dell Latitude D830, got the INF error with the status 21 as normal however the filename was not garbled as with other hardware I use from Dell and gave the filename txtsetup.sif which is in the i386 folder of the WinXP OS install repository.

Win XP installation Problem

Postby Lumiaen » Fri Feb 29, 2008 8:52 am

Hello. Nice forum and even greater Appliance.

I have a similar problem. I was able to deploy Win XP installation but when the system reboots,
i'm getting a blue screen and an error message that something has happend an there's a risk that my
pc might be inffected.

i couldn't find any thread ,at least until now, that refers if their is possible to install xp on a physical
machine.

I was trying to install Xp on my eee pc into an external HDD.

If anyone has any suggestions......

Thanks!
Lumiaen

Sounds like your original operating system left behind something in the bootsector or bios that checks whether someone is trying to boot something that it doesn't recognise. Are you sure that it boots from the external drive? Or is it trying to boot from the internal drive and then finds out something has changed?

To the problem with the Reboot:

The BIOS, as the_dude suggests, may be setup to monitor the boot sector for changes. This may be listed as an Anti-virus measure in the BIOS settings.

To the Garbles INF file problem... still working on it. I have found that the same image works on a Dell Latitude D600, and not a D610. The only initial difference is the Broadcom network card designation of NetExtreme on the newer D610.

I, as well, have tried adding the D610 drivers to the ISO image without any success. I have also added them to the BINL drivers with similar lack of success.

I still feel like this is a driver issue, though. I also think that this is not a garbled issue in the sense of a mis-transmission from the card, as the garbled text is the same every time. Timing factors would change the garbage if it were simply a garbled transmission. There is something else going on here.

Thanks,

Hi,

I'm having a problem with Windows XP installation too, maybe somebody can help me.

After booting via PXE and choosing the image this error message appears:

unexpected error (21) in file WINXP_SYS\e100b645.sys line 3788 in d:\xpsprtm\base\boot\setup\setup.c


I've already tried a different xp image but same problem.


thank you

e100b645.sys is related to a network card by the looks of it. I would download the network drivers for your system (or get them from the install CDs for your unit), and add them to the BINL service from the UDA web interface. Give that a try and see if it helps.

Thanks,

I'm not sure if I was able to get this fixed....anyway, I did a PXE installation with my RIS server 2003.
Maybe the next time!
