  • Installing XP via USB - nLite problems

    Hi all,

    Get my AOA150-AB soon, and am preparing to install XP on it via USB.

    I've been working for about 3 days trying to get it to work, as you can imagine I'm at wits' end with it. Have tried various install methods, it'd usually either:

    a) In text-based setup tell me the EULA could not be found and force exit
    b) In text-based setup tell me the "Windows XP CD containing the installation files could not be accessed"
    c) Ask me for a Win98 or earlier CD even though it's not an upgrade edition
    d) Not even bother booting into it at all
    e) Hal.dll missing

    Furthest I've got is with USBPrep_10.exe, bootsect.exe and the HP Disk Format Tool, I get to the screen where I can chose which disk to format, then when I try to format it tells me it could not be formatted, then upon pressing enter to continue it gives me the same old "The Windows XP CD containing the installation files could not be accessed" message and forces a restart.

    Anybody have any idea what's causing these? Have I installed it to USB wrong? Have I nLited it wrong? :S been searching long and hard and found no fix.

    It's a legit version of XP Pro with fresh install files pulled off the disk. Lastsession.ini:

          I honestly have not a clue. I've done it before and it's gone alright, but nothing seems to be working here.

          Think I'm gonna just get the scratch XP install files and go from scratch, once I get access to my XP machine (none of the programs like windows 7)

          Cheers

            FINALLY FIXED!!

            For anyone reading with the same issue:

            Had to use an XP machine and the HP USB Disk Format Tool to quick format my stick to NTFS.

            I then got brand new clean install files and nLited those, and then used USB_multiboot_10 (or USB_Prep_8, both work fine) to copy the files to the disk.

            The Grub loader it used didn't work and never showed the option, however, I deleted the grub boot files and it came up with "Grub loader not found... press any key to continue" on boot, which then led me to the screen allowing the selection of XP install parts.

            All is working fine now, but backup any important stuff, it could easily install everything on the wrong drive.

            If you're getting:

            -"EULA not found, press F3 to exit setup" error - you probably need new install files.
            -"Could not access XP install CD" error - you're probably using WinToFlash, which seems to brick it in my experience.
            -Unable to boot from USB even when boot order is correct - download bootsect.exe and write a new one (drive has to be NTFS)

            Oh, and if you get error 14001, you've been a bloody idiot like me and left part of the i386 folder out lol. In which case, redo the whole thing (but in nLite use your lastsession.ini file)

            My nLite lastsession.ini file if you wanna lift any of the code (obvs up to you to tweak as you like but if you're having issues you could try the config, made for an AOA150 but should work for a good few others):

                Indeed, there are many different ways of doing it.

                Though I think I found out why I had so many issues with every method... despite my OC being IBT 300 passes stable, it's not firefox stable, nor transferring-loads-of-**** stable.

                    Fair do's, I could never get it working, it did something that made the i386 directory inaccessible to the install. Maybe it works if you do it off XP like the other tools.

                    For the record, if you are getting battery no-charge issues or a blurry/jumpy/problem output on yours - update the BIOS (I did mine through Windows since I couldn't get Crisis disk level recovery to work)
