Hey there guys,
I’ve got a working bootable flash drive set up primarily following Tutorial #63 on http://www.rmprepusb.com. I have my WIN7 32 & 64 bit, WIN Vista 32 & 64 bit bootable installs working flawlessly. However, I seem to have hit a bit of a stumbling block with the Windows XP install.
I’m testing this out with the Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 3 (x86) - CD (English) ISO from Technet (I am a subscriber).
I can get to the point where I hit F6, specify the drivers I want (Both FiraDisk and WinVblock 32 bits) then I test out an AHCI Driver from the list (I’ve also tried this method while running my Hard Disk controller in IDE mode).
After I’ve specified these files the install will start running through the files it’s gathering and then get to the point where it say’s “Setup Is Starting Windows”.. waits a couple seconds, then just goes to a black screen…
I then retried the install selecting JUST the Winvblock driver, and the AHCI driver which resulted in a BSOD. Afterwards, I tried setting the controller to Compatibility (IDE) mode and running it with Winvblock (BSOD) , then FiraDisk (Black Screen).. selecting both (FiraDisk and WinVblock) will yield a black screen. The LED’s on the laptop and HDD activity seem to still be going.. however a cold shut down is required to restart.
I noticed the FiraDisk folder has no txtsetup.oem file.. Should there be?
I didn’t see this issue pop up in the troubleshooting for I thought I’d ask here about this issue. I’m on a Thinkpad W520 Laptop (In case you want to look up the specs such as Chipset and such).
Thanks in advance!
