View Full Version : A few questions/comments after using Powerpacker
12-05-2007, 12:07 AM
I can slipstream the driverpacks base, burn it to a cd, and everything works fine.
I run through the same setup, but click "export settings" instead of slipstream. I name the file.
I run Powerpacker with the settings file for driverpacks and, although it says its installing with driverpacks, it never integrates the files and never updates my winnt.sif.
Is there something I am missing? Am I supposed to slipstream driverpacks to the folder BEFORE I run powerpacker (as well as providing a settings file)? Maybe I misunderstood how it was supposed to work?

Here is the Powerpack.ini file
I think I have tried every possible combination now. Still nothing. :confused:
XPSource=C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\XP Home Retail
XPDestination=C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\XP OEM
Winnt.sif=C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\XP Home Retail\I386
$OEM$=C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\XP Home Retail\$OEM$
DPSource=C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\Base\DPs_Base.exe
DPSettings=C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\Base\speed.ini

Ok, after searching around on the msfn forums, I see my issue.
The dp base cannot be in a folder with spaces in it. I moved it to the root of my drive and it seems to integrate.

Just out of curiousity... is that a limitation of the DP_Base or was that an issue with PowerPacker? PowerPacker shouldn't have any issues with spaces... if it does I will need to fix that. :)
Thanks for reporting.

not entirely sure, seems like more of a compatibility between the two
I was able to run the base from my desktop manually, but when I pointed powerpacker to it, it wouldnt go. Moved everything to the root of my drive and it works fine now. Other files and folders in powerpacker dont seem to care about filenames with spaces, so I am not sure. I plan to do a few more packs tonight later so I will let you know if I have any conclusions. Now, my next hurdle will be figuring out oemscan:-D

Another quick question...when it asks for the location of the winnt.sif, will powerpacker rename it automatically? In other works, can I rename my winnt.sif's to keep better track of them, and let powerpacker deal with changing the names?

I don't think you can rename them yet (if I remember correctly). But... when you use the Advanced Tab for creating a BOOT menu system using multiple winnt.sif files... you can use different names for your winnt.sif files. Just not on the main tab.
