Need help to slipstream the hotfix into an XP Pro Install
Posted on 2005-05-13
I have a CPU that was running xp home and user tried to upgrade to XP pro. Of couse user never backed up data and it is important to him. (Have you heard that one before ...lol). Anyway the install is stuck in an indefinate loop. It crashes at the 34min mark and restarts again and again ........
I have looked at the setupact log and here is a partial log (can post it all but kind of long and unnecessary i think)
The WINNT32 portion of Setup has completed.
GUI mode Setup has started.

Setup encountered an error while trying to set system security.
An extended error has occurred.
C:\WINDOWS\System32\usbhub.sys was not deleted because of the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified.
So it appears I need to follow instructions covered in MS Article 814847 "How to Slipstream hotfixes hat replace preexisting driver files"
This is where I get lost and need help.
1. It says to connect to the cpu you want to make a distribution folders on.
How do I do this? Can I use boot disks and do this from a command prompt?
2. next it says to create an i386 distribution folder by typing the following MD E:\i386
What is E: suppose to be my hard drive (C:)?
3. Use the xcopy command-line utility to copy the files and subfolders from the Windows 2000 SP3 CD-ROM (integrated installation) to the E:\i386 folder. For example, if your CD-ROM drive is drive D, type the following:
XCOPY /E /I /V D:\i386 E:\i386
I am installing XP pro sp1 not windows 2000 sp3 so do all the commands stay the same?
4. Create an E:\i386\svcpack folder. For example, to create a svcpack subfolder in the i386 folder, type the following:
This should be easy once I figure out step 2
5. Copy the hotfix executable program (Qnnnnnn_XXX_YYY_ZZZ_LL.exe) to the E:\i386\svcpack folder by using the 8.3 naming format (Qnnnnnn.exe), where nnnnnn represents the actual hotfix number.
Where is this information coming from??
Sorry either my brain is shot or I just dont get it. Please help me understand. Thanks in advance.
