Here below a quick "how to pxe boot xp installation thru RIS" to from here

 

 

1-enter startrom.0 as boot filename

 

2-put winnt.sif as unattended installation file in root folder  (see example in zip file)

 

3-put ntldr (renamed setupldr.exe), ntdetect.com in root folder

 

4-share the root folder (windows shared, nullsessions enabled) containing a subfolder XP (installation cd files)

 

5-extract all inf files from lan driverpacks to INF folder in root folder (OR else use a nics.txt file)

 

6-extract all sys files from lan driverpacks to XP\I386 folder in root folder

is it possible to have hardcoded paths for these drivers? Like Driver\INF and Drivers\SYS

i can think of adding a parameter in config.ini if this is what you mean.

Yes that would be awesome, instead of putting all the drivers in every WinXP source one folder would neatly do.

Not that about the path to the drivers fodler (i386), i cannot alter it :this path is set thru the winnt.sif (see below).

 

What I would propose is to hardcode the path to the inf folder next to the i386 folder.

 

This way you have your pxe/tftp root folder containing the following :

-XP

-XP\I386

-XP\INF

-winnf.sif

-startrom.0

-ntdlr

-ntdetect.com

[data]
floppyless = "1"
msdosinitiated = "1"
; Needed for second stage
OriSrc = "\\192.168.1.248\pxe\XP\i386"
OriTyp = "4"
LocalSourceOnCD = 1
DisableAdminAccountOnDomainJoin = 1

[SetupData]
OsLoadOptions = "/fastdetect"
; Needed for first stage
SetupSourceDevice = "\Device\LanmanRedirector\192.168.1.248\pxe\XP"

[RemoteInstall]
; Avoid automatic format/repartition
Repartition = No
UseWholeDisk = No

[UserData]
ComputerName = *
;ProductID=XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX

The only thing that BINL looks for is *.sys files, wouldn't be possible to intercept the files according to INF or by NCQ request?

This what TPS is doing already : get an NCQ request containing a VID & PID, go thru inf files, send back a driver filename, instructing windows setup to download it and continue the installation.

FYI, the latest TPS version can skip the INF folder parsing provided that you have a nics.txt in the root folder (i.e, next to startom.0).

 

The nics.txt should look like the below :

1022 2000 pcntpci5.sys PCnet
10b7 6055 EL556ND5.sys EL556ND5
10b7 6056 EL556ND5.sys EL556ND5
8086 100E e1000325.sys E1000

The drivers still need to be in the folder mentionned by winnt.sif

Awesome this is much easier to use since you don't actually put all inf files in every xp source i have.

 

Just like shepya's binl server.
