View Full Version : Multiboot CD for all versions of OEM XP Home ?
04-19-2010, 10:13 PM
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. (http://integrator.siginetsoftware.com/index.php?addons&id=224)
I just updated it to 188.8.131.52.
Also, there is a bug with PowerPacker if any quotes exist in the [floppyfiles.*] section of dosnet.inf.
* change entries like this: *
* to this: *

I have read the forum. Someone mentioned about removing the quotes " " in dosnet.inf which I did but same BSOD occured. Hmm

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:)
