Disable AV software It seems that some antivirus (AV) software causes the SP3 install to hang, while the installer seems fine with others. my review here

The error GetCatVersion: Failed to retrieve version information from.... .CAT is also present in Gurgelmeyer's USP5. I also struggled for over a week trying to get XP SP3 installed (after downgrading my machine from Vista to XP). Parted Magic can browse the file system and delete any files from within it's GUI.

It seems that battery is checked in a previous stage: Code: Select all697447F2 loc_697447F2: ; Xref 69744704 697447F2 8D85F4FDFFFF lea eax,[ebp-20Ch] 697447F8 50 push eax ;=========== HOT SPOT: Forcing this function Now, the final step is removing the "Battery unsigned issue". Some files inside were locked by system so I had to use FileASSASSIN and schedule pending delete. The files in 4GB_PATCH directory will add support for 4GB+ RAM.

I still tested them with nLite and Dutch XP, but of course (?) that didn't work... (Well, it kinda worked, but there were 2 errors).

In my case, that meant not forcing SP3 on the os until windows updates thought it was ready for it.

A unique SP3 update package for WinFLP will be made available at download.microsoft.com. This is essential to know in order to patch the syssetup.dll (I've already found the offset). Setuperr.log "noticed" my syssetup.dll patch: Error: Setup detected that the system file named [C:\windows\system32\syssetup.dll] is not signed properly by Microsoft. http://realink.org/solved-xp/solved-xp-install-problem.html Probably it requires some debugging.

Rarst 8 years ago # @Daniel You are welcome. :) Seems my recipe is about right enough to help without tons of additional stuff MS offers to try.

In front of the hex numbers that translate to SP4\i386\update\update.exe there is the number 20 00. UPDATE: An interesting observation: After installing SP4, the partmgr.sys driver is the only one which is signed. Any argument parsed to the sfx executable will be parsed to the update.exe in the cabinet. http://realink.org/solved-xp/solved-xp-sp1-install-freezes-at-32-min-left.html This was the source of theseinstructions, and thank you for mentioning it!

Rarst 5 years ago # @Josh That is somewhat strange, SP3 should have everything since SP2 (this the name)… So unless install was pre-SP2… Anyway, as long as it worked in Thanks.

The cmp combined with jz has a special role: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/9342 ... -after-cmp So edi and esi are subtracted. However, SFC does not report any problems after Windows installation. Yes, my password is: Forgot your password? How do I patch the syssetup.dll file to bypass this check?

Came back some hours later to find "failed to install catalog files". Windows Update on the web feels extremely broken these days and half the time I can't even get it to work on a Windows XP machine so having an update pack Windows 98/98SE needed some tweaking with USB and software (KernelEx) and so forth.

I can't find a patched syssetup.dll anywhere, msfn.org seems to be down at the moment and all other links are dead. Thanks so much!
