Hi all..

Has anyone built a setup CD/DVD with Ryan's Post SP2 hotfixes and Bashrats Driverpacks.

I've built one which seems to run okay but I have had to burn the ISO to a DVD as it works out at 744MB which won't obviously fit on a CD. I'm curious to know if I've done something wrong in the integration of the Driverpacks.

My reason for adding the driverpacks is that my system for some reason kept restarting after the 'installing network' section at 32 minutes and I gather it is a driver problem - possibly to do with my onboard NIC.

After integrating Bashrats driverpacks, it now works fine albeit that I have to burn to a DVD.

My next move is to use Nlite to add the Serial number and other options but I'm just curious on having to burn the ISO to a DVD. Is this just the way it is our have I forgotten to delete something.

I know this has nothing to do really with this Forum but I'm interested to see if anyone else took this approach.

Regards

Declan

I've used the Update Pack and DriverPacks together for over nine months now without problems. I use Method 2 and am assuming you are too. Lately the DriverPacks have grown a bit too large to all fit onto a non-nLited CD. Some CD burners can overburn up to 800 MB, but mine is not one of them.

Starting January I've had to omit WLAN and some other DPs to fit everything onto a CD for some systems, but I always use DVDs for my own. I don't see this as a problem because from what I've read Windows Vista will ship on DVD.

In my opinion, if a system hasn't been fitted with a DVD drive then it most likely isn't powerful enough to need the latest drivers to run the latest games and applications. Basic support for most older hardware is already included with SP2. The older systems that I often service really only need the Update Pack.

I don't use nLite. There are other ways to do the things I need done.

If the only language you need is English, just delete the i386\LANG folder.
That'll free up about 100Megs.

Yeah I delete the land folder, WINNTUPG, WIN9XMIG, and WIN9XUPG.

Use http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1535&highlight=win9xupg to easily and properly delete the extra folders that most of us do not need.
