This thread is a continuation of a previous post:
which was moving way off topic; and needed to be retargeted.
So, here we are
The issue at hand deals with the nativeEx project which was current as of around June 29, 2007 (sorry, don't have a release number for the project).
In this instance, the project has been built on a reasonably new (and THOROUGHLY clean and maintained) Dell Dimension B110; using the following copies of Windows XP SP2 as source data for the build:
- The bare reinstallation CD which came with the compute; and
- a 9x Upgrade Edition 2002.
Next, the Dell reinstallation CD was tried; yielding similar results (errors) in the final build.
Lastly, an ISO file was built from the reinstallation CD, and was subsequently expanded into a new folder located on the %basedir% for the WinBuilder project. The final build from this copy produced results similar to the previous two examples (above).
In sum, here are the problems encountered with this build:
- HoJoPE was found to be taking enormous amounts of RAM during its operations. By switching from the Upgrade disk to the reinstallation disk for the build, this problem largely abated.
- In all instances, HoJoPE could not execute without commiting illegal operations along the way. Please see the attached logfile (and the log from the previous post) for more details. This current logfile was created from a build using the expanded (local) XP archive.
- Every attempt to boot a CD created from the resulting ISO (burnatonce was used burn the ISO image onto the CD -- always worked extremely well for Bart) resulted in the following error message shortly after the initial splashscreen:
File \i386\system32\ntoskrnl.exe could not be loaded.
The error code is 14
