Install XP in VHD using XP Setup ISO file and WinVBlock driver

VHD_XP_Create.exe - Make VHD file and make Grub4dos Boot Menu on HDD or USB
for Install of XP in VHD by using XP Setup ISO file and WinVBlock driver



Download VHD_XP_Setup - http://reboot.pro/fi...tall-xp-in-vhd/

More Info - http://www.911cd.net...showtopic=25345
-
Possible Scenario's
- Boot from USB and Install XP in VHD located on NTFS drive of USB or HDD
- Boot with Grub4dos Menu on NTFS USB-Stick for Install of XP in VHD located on NTFS Drive of Internal Harddisk
- Boot with Portable USB-harddisk and Direct Install XP in VHD located on NTFS System Drive of USB-Harddisk

First Prepare XP Setup ISO file with integrated DriverPacks as described in Section 2. How to prepare XP Setup Source ?
http://www.911cd.net...showtopic=23553
and Copy XP Setup ISO file to the root of internal harddisk drive of your computer.

Direct Install of XP in VHD on USB requires to Integrate Wait4UFD driver in XP Setup Source
http://reboot.pro/to...it/#entry167235


Selections to be made in VHD_XP_Create.exe
Boot Drive - FAT32 or NTFS - can be USB-stick so that there are no changes needed in the Windows installation on the internal harddisk
System Drive - NTFS - where VHD file is created e.g your internal harddisk drive
XP Setup ISO file - located on internal harddisk drive so that fast loading into RAM is enabled


Procedure to Make 2 GB VHD file and make Grub4dos Boot Menu on HDD or USB
for Install of XP in VHD by using XP Setup ISO file and WinVBlock driver

0. Run VHD_XP_Setup.exe and Extract to simple path on internal Harddisk - gives folder VHD_XP_Setup
In Win 7/8 OS Set User Account Control Off and Reboot
1. Use imdiskinst.exe to Install ImDisk driver (if not present already)
- Imdisk is used to mount VHD and HDD Image files in a virtual drive
2. If desired use first UFD_FORMAT.exe to make USB-Stick bootable with Grub4dos Menu and that can be used as Target Boot Drive
- Then Run VHD_XP_Create.exe to create XPSRC1.vhd and Grub4dos Boot Menu for Install of XP in VHD
- Select Boot Drive and NTFS System Drive and select XP Setup ISO file located in root of Harddisk Drive
3. Reboot and in Grub4dos menu select Start XP Setup on XPSRC1.vhd - WinVBlock driver
- XPSRC1.vhd has already NTFS compressed format, so you should NOT format at Setup, just keep settings
- Format XPSRC1.img inside XP Setup cannot be used, it results in corrupt message
4. After Reboot select Continue XP Setup and then Reboot to Start XP from Image XPSRC1.vhd

Option to Install 130 extra MassStorage drivers to make Universal XP VHD that can boot from USB on all hardware
When WINDOWS\DriverPacks store with subfolder M (MassStorage) for support of SCSI- en RAID-controllers is found in XP Source VHD,
then option MassStor of USB_XP_Fix.exe Or VHD_XP_Compact.exe will add CriticalDeviceDatabase registry and Services to allow booting on all hardware.

After XP Setup has finished then Boot with other Windows OS and use:

5. USB_XP_Fix.exe to enable booting from USB and to Install MassStorage drivers.
Select XPSRC1.vhd Image file and USB Boot Drive and click GO to create Grub4dos Boot Menu on USB Boot Drive.
If desired Copy XPSRC1.vhd to NTFS USB Drive for having Portable USB Drive booting with XP VHD.
http://reboot.pro/to...-and-windows-7/ Or http://www.911cd.net...showtopic=23553

Or
5. VHD_XP_Compact.exe - Make Portable XP in 1.2 GB VHD Or Mini XP in 0.6 GB VHD booting from Grub4dos Menu on USB or HDD
Make VHD with reduced size of XP and enable booting from USB and Install MassStorage drivers to boot from USB on all hardware.
http://reboot.pro/to...o-make-mini-xp/


Use UFD_Format.exe Or BOOT_USB.exe to Format and Make USB-Stick bootable with Grub4dos Menu
http://reboot.pro/to...ble-usb-drives/ Or http://www.911cd.net...showtopic=24424

UEFI MULTI - Make Multi-Boot USB-Harddisk Booting with Boot Manager Menu and using Boot Image files
http://reboot.pro/to...182-uefi-multi/

BOOT_IMG.exe makes Grub4dos Boot Menu on Target Boot Drive for VHD on NTFS Target System Drive (FileCopy of VHD occurs if not yet present)

================================================================================

Problems you may have
1. - VHD must be contiguous = unfragmented - Use WinContig to solve such problem.
2. - In case of VHD located on USB then some mobo will give VHD Disk 2048 MB No Access message in Partition Selection dialogue of XP Setup.
In that case reboot and in VHD_XP_Create.exe use Internal Harddisk drive as System Drive where to Create VHD for XP Setup.
It is important to use in that case XP Setup ISO without integrated Wait4UFD driver.
After XP Setup has finished then use USB_XP_Fix.exe to enable booting from USB and to Install MassStorage drivers.
Select XPSRC1.vhd Image file and USB Boot Drive and click GO to create Grub4dos Boot Menu on USB Boot Drive.
Copy XPSRC1.vhd to NTFS USB Drive for having Portable USB Drive booting with XP VHD.
3. VHD and XP Setup ISO file cannot be located on GPT partition - UEFI computers must be in BIOS compatible mode to enable booting with Grub4dos Menu.
Use MBR partition of HDD or USB as location for VHD and XP Setup ISO file.
4. In GUI-mode I386\asms not found error means that Virtual CD is not found in GUI-mode
Select Checkbox - Load XP Setup ISO in RAM might help to solve this issue.
Otherwise use WinNTSetup3 to prepare NT Setup folders in VHD mounted in ImDisk virtual drive - See Modified Procedure below
5. Black Screen - Freezing in TXT-mode of XP Setup - Fix TXT-mode by using map --e820cycles=0 in Grub4dos Menu before hook

Modified Procedure to Make 2 GB VHD file and make NT Setup Grub4dos Boot Menu on HDD or USB and using WinVBlock driver.
First WinNTSetup3 is used with XP Setup ISO file to prepare XP Setup folders in VHD mounted in ImDisk virtual drive.

0. If desired use first UFD_FORMAT.exe to make USB-Stick bootable with Grub4dos Menu and that can be used as Target Boot Drive
1. Then Use VHD_XP_Create.exe where XP Setup ISO file is NOT Selected in this case.
Select Target Drives and Grub4dos Boot Menu Checkbox and use GO
to make XPSRC1.vhd on NTFS System Drive and to make NT Setup Grub4dos Boot Menu on Target Boot Drive.
2. Mount XPSRC1.vhd as ImDisk Virtual Drive - if needed use imdiskinst.exe to Install ImDisk driver
3. Use WinNTSetup3 - click on XP tab - Right-click to Select XP Setup ISO file
Select as Boot Drive and as Installation Drive the ImDisk Virtual drive of mounted XPSRC1.vhd
Click Setup to prepare $WIN_NT$.~BT and $WIN_NT$.~LS folders in XP VHD
http://www.msfn.org/...inntsetup-v386/
4. Reboot to Install XP in VHD - Start TXT-mode and then reboot 2x with Grub4dos menu Boot Windows XP
