CPU independent Windows XP using WDS Beta from Longhorn

http://pantherxp.net

:thumbup:;)

Hello all...
For awhile now I've been working on a system to utilize the early (WIM based) Panther engine as a means of deploying WinXP and other NTLDR based Windows NT systems to hardware with different CPU types. After only a gahzillion test cycles... It's finally done. :thumbup:

Discovering the system HAL type (when the wrong HAL is installed) was the main issue at hand. Most system builders have, to date, used data stored in the registry to determine the system HAL type for similar image based deployments. This is not always a reliable means of checking the number of physical CPU cores though. If the wrong HAL is installed or used in a preinstallation environment, the registry will reflect the incorrect HAL type when queried. For this reason a small 3rd party tool was was discovered for the task of checking the number of CPU cores reliably (A huge thanks to Galapo for pointing me to Crystal Dew World). With this task performed correctly, sysprep may install a new HAL on request if needed.
:thumbup:

For those curious, scripted (autoit3) HAL swaps were also successfully tested, but sysprep works fine if the CPU type is reported accurately.

With the HAL detection issue overcome, I'm now updating some supporting web documents.

If this sounds like something interesting to you, a demo client image has been tested and uploaded. (please pm)

attached is a preliminary readme.

more details will follow.

-edit-
attached readme is from an early release
the current client image readme is online here.

Sounds great... but you still need to boot into PE after laying down an image in order to do this, no??

Well if you need a beta tester just let me know. I've been doing the whole driverpacks/sysprep/hal thing for a while now. I'm also on the msfn.org forums (I wrote AutoWifi, UpdateHammer and DriverForge, USBeSafe).

Oh and do you think that it could be used for something like Acronis or Ghost imaging solutions?

Galapo has seen the project image,

You might think of Panther XP as an alternative to 'universal restore' by Acronis.
It uses the longhornpe, but does not have to. (These deployment systems all use sysprep, *just updated by MS)

Panther XP requires 1 reboot to go from PE to WinXP MiniSetup plus one more to finish and load the desktop. Thats.. err, um, ... 2.

:)

Please PM me and I'll provide a link for the client image.
...

I'm now creating a set of support tools to mount the beta wim image(s) and inject new files... :)

--there are now over a dozen servicing commands in all, plus new docs.

Once everything is finalized it will be made available for widespread use.
So far it's going good and is quite fun to work on, so it'll be done soon and something posted here.

...
btw...

* The new xp.5512 sp3 opk update is now out
It has a new sysprep (v 5512) which adds an update cycle to my project.
what the hell.

Your project continues to impress me! Seems a good idea to me to automate mounting and injection so as to prevent mistakes people might make. A side effect is that such automated commands help to document the process and what is carried out without actually writing a help file per se (I personally hate writing documentation!).

Regards,
Galapo.

Any updates??

I'm looking forward to trying this, but I'm not familiar with deploying WIM images. Could this work with ghost or acronis??

Updates about what? :cheers:

A bit of advice, if I may:
before attempting modifying a method, always try it EXACTLY as it is, get the hang of it, try understanding how it works, then, and only then you can try starting to modify it to suit your expectations.

I completely agree and understand that. I feel the same way. The questions was just that, a question to find out if it'll work with ghost. That's all.

I was just curious if WIM was the only way this would work. But it seems that that's the only method he's working on or will be working on.

As I see it, but I may be completely and utterly wrong, of course :cheers:, the same approach could work with .img (RAW images) or .sdi images, that can be read through RAMDISK or through filedisk, IMDISK or VDK.

AFAIK both Ghost and Acronis use proprietary format images, for which I cannot say if a "filedisk like" driver capable of mounting those images exists (or is given together with the respective Commercial product).

FYI, this "Panther XP" project has some points in common with a project born on MSFN:

Hey thunn... long time no see. :huh: My username over at 911cd.net was L3th4l I used to be a big time user of the bart disk and used many of your plugins. :huh: So I am sure this project is a great one as well. :)

This may be a little off topic but it is a question I have wondered for a while...

Is it possible to change the HAL info on a hard drive that is allready installed without having to re-image the drive and re-deploying it to the system? Currently I use Acronis True Image with the Universal Restore option when I need to transfer a drive from one machine into a new system. But I think it would be great if there was a simple way for me to rip out the HAL info from the drive... remove the drive from the system... pop the drive into the new system... boot it up... and not get a blue screen of death due to mismatching HAL types. Your project seems to deal with the same issue but from a different angle. Is there any way possible for me to accomplish this without re-imaging?

Hi Siginet,

You may use OfflineSysPrep to set HAL of your choosing or let it set the one matching your hardware.

Galapo.

:huh:


I'm curious if this options
/numproc = number
/NUMPROC= Specifies the number of CPUs that can be used on a multiprocessor system. Example: /NUMPROC=2 on a four-way system will prevent Windows from using two of the four processors.
/ONECPU = Causes Windows to use only one CPU on a multiprocessor system.

would enable a multiprocessor machine the ability to boot a uniprocessor hal?

Don't know, if i've got you right.
But you can use a uniprocessor hal + a uniprocessor kernel also on a multiprocessor machine. (look at PE)
But only 1 CPU will work of course.

:huh:

I would suspect so, as they were pretty useless on a single processor system.
