Repair Install Problem
Posted 13 August 2009 - 06:24 AM
from the instructions in the link.
After the files were copied, the system reboots into the Windows XP Installation
Screen. From there it tells me 'Setup will complete in 39 minutes'.
Although the information screen to the right does change ( Try the Easiest Windows Yet, Stay up to Date,
Your computer will be faster and more reliable), the countdown remains at 39 minutes and freezes.
I used a Windows XP Service Pack 2 Professional disk. My Computer has Service Pack Three.
I've read somewhere that if you have Service Pack 3 on your computer you cannot do a repair install with Service Pack 2.
I have an error code from the Setuperr.log:
Setup had problems registering the following OLE control DLL:
Contact your system administrator, who may provide assistance in diagnosing this problem.
The signature for Windows XP Professional Upgrade is invalid. The error code is 80096001.
A system-level error occurred while verifying trust.
Setup failed to install the product catalogs. This is a fatal error. The setup log files should contain more information.

If you have SP3 installed on the system, you cannot use a CD that only contains SP2...to do a repair.

I used an XP Professional Service Pack 2 disc for the repair install.
Does the error log help to troubleshoot what went wrong?

Which is why XP provides the warning message that it does when users attempt such.
At this point...all I can suggest is that you create a CD which reflects SP3...and try another repair or a clean install.

I find that using the nLite website...is the easiest way to create a successfully slipstreamed XP install CD. It's not the only way, there are various websites that also provide instructions on how they would suggest doing it.
