always and verify with each trial
did you run
RegWrite('HKLM\SYSTEM\Setup', 'SystemSetupInProgress', 'Reg_Dword', '0x00000000')
before trying ghost ?
Okey i followed the way of loader now
Than vss batch
ghostloader tries to install wimfltr, but it is already installed
vss batch is okey but cant start swprv service (okey i add swprv which i forgot). I add a line to the top of new batch which didnt make service start. picture (path to executable taken from 2k3!)
( vss_ddu.dll vssui.dll are not in xp and obviously will not effect the batch, as you say it is a general batch )
2nd trial with 2k3sp2 source
vbrun60sp6.exe --> cant so i manually add files -> cause lock down
Than vss batch -->swpnp service works
than ghostloader..... ---> trying to install wimfltr cause collapse
it seems to me with 2k3 if it is already exists, 2k3 refuses and lock .
so i turn back to junction+ .reg+.ghost14.cmd --> get same result with xp32
yep i know from begining, just giving a shot.
First of all xp is not verified to work. 2k3 and vista is currently verified to work here.
i dont junction dotnet2 at the moment, all in bootsdi.img. I decide to junction ghost14 because there is X:\LODR\ghost14 in .reg file.
Only junction the dotnet2 package. Do NOT junction anything inside LODR\ghost14.
The fixinstall.bat can be removed and is never used.
maybe my dotnet is too old , also i have other trials in my mind but time ..... ,
I guess for these lodr packs to try with livexp, first we need a dotnet2 package preparation routine that can be applied by everyone. For now a quick way to prepare a \dotnet2_xp_sp2_enu\ and \dotnet2_2k3_sp2_enu\ is enough to me in which i will follow sanbarrow way (later a more livexp way to prepare these ).
but as joakim indicated value of lodr comes with big packages and livexp need a trustable .net2 first .
