Microsoft Windows XP Pro Language for Non-Unicode Programs requires I386 folder

i modified a windows XP professional CD to slipstream network drivers as well as SATA and SCSI drivers. i used a winnt.sif file to set the installation directory to C:\winnt instead of C:\windows.
once the the OS is installed on a machine from the modified CD i login and try to set the "language for non unicode programs" to germany but it prompts me for the I386 folder.

is there any changes i need to make to the winnt.sif file for it to not prompt me for these files.

here are the contents of the winnt.sif file i used.
