WinBorg XP April 2012 DVD

Image

What is Winborg XP?

If you boot with this DVD and start one of the setup routines, this will clean install a corporate edition of Windows XP Pro SP3 updated to the month of release. The aim is for you to be able to stick this DVD in, quickly get setup running, and then when setup finally stops, your computer is ready to use. There are no steps in between, you don't need to do a thing, you get a fully unattended installation of everything. This means all your device drivers installed and no critical updates need installing. You just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Actually, there are some options you can select, in particular, the Driver Packs Selector is something you'll want to look out for as the operating system is installed because you can choose extra driver packs that aren't selected by default and you can also un-select some to save some time for the install. You can also set the type of screen resolution you have - standard or widescreen - this will make the end result a lot more satisfying to gaze upon.

Winborg XP was created by BartOfBorg. Further development since August 2006 by Soporific.

DVD Boot Menu

Image

4 different flavours of Windows XP Professional SP3 to choose from:
- the choices involve whether you want:
> to use the driverpacks
> to install the OS without any tweaks or addons
> to install either the standard tweaked OS or the WinBorg one. See below for more info on the differences.

There's a tools menu available with a choice set of tools to help you with your hardware if need be.

[Image

The install theme

The setup billboard screen theme has been split in 2. The first part is Matrix inspired while the second is all about the Borg.

Image

Driverpacks

The driverpacks and screen resolution selection utility starts after your PC first reboots during the installation of the operating system. This is a good thing to watch out for because you can select extra driverpacks that aren't selected by default (as shown below). It starts after your PC reboots for the first time during setup (after the blue screen part). New in the November edition of Winborg XP is the PhysX driverpack which provides extra juicy drivers for the latest graphics cards.

You can also set the style of your screen resolution. For extra impact of your new operating system right out of the box, please set this to your usual screen resolution. There are only 2 options - Standard and Widescreen. Hopefully you all know which is which ;) -- if you don't and you have a widescreen monitor, the resolution is automatically set to 1024 x 768 (or higher) and this may not look very good. You can simply change it in Display Setting like normal, i'm just saying here that it will aid in giving you the pleasure of a good looking PC when setup is all finished.

The Operating System

This is the scene at the end of setup:
Image

Image

The OS is Windows XP Professional with SP3 v5512 integrated. You should not need to download any further hotfixes, and you should be able to 'validate' at any time with any OS you install from this DVD. When you visit Windows Update, you do not have to download or install anything in order to use it, the necessary files have already been integrated.

Vista icons package
--- OS options 1 & 2: the original icons were preserved.
--- OS options 3 & 4: Vista style icons

Image

OS Options

There are 4 OS options to choose from when you want to install the OS:

option 1 - Windows XP Professional SP3 with updated OS components only
option 2 - Windows XP Professional SP3 with minimal tweaks and add-ons

WinBorg XP Builder

For those not familiar with Winborg XP, see above for details of the April 2012 release.

What is the Winborg XP Builder?

i find it pretty hard to make decisions on what to include and what to leave off each and every Winborg XP disc i release. The choices are many! Update Packs, NLite tweaks, RVM addons, Driverpacks, Driverpack defaults, post-install hotfixes, post-install apps, Apps library contents, wallpapers, themes, setup music, and more! Rather than let me decide, why don't you decide?!

I have written the builder so anyone can build their own WinBorg XP DVD. well, nearly everyone - please see the requirements below. If you simply want to use the default settings -- download the builder, run it, and make your DVD image. This will be exactly as if i built the image and released it. Or, you can use the Builder Options utility and totally customize the DVD for your own needs.

Instructions

1) System requirements

* a windows machine -- the builder will only work on a Windows system (it uses Windows scripting). I have only tested this on an XP machine, but i can't see any reason why it won't also work on Vista and Win7 machines. Please report your experiences with using the Builder on PCs with these OSes.
* English language -- i'm pretty sure you will need to use an English OS in order for all the scripting to work. Feel free to try this out in a VM with a different language OS and report your experiences.
* Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 or higher is needed for some of the programs the builder uses
* 10 gigs of space - the builder will contain nearly 10 gigs of data by the time it has finished.

2) Preparation

* Extract contents of the released file into a new folder.

* Run Builder_Options.exe -- this is a script that acts like a guided tour of all the things you can customize on the DVD, and will also help keep it updated. It will open each folder location for you, open any readme.txt files you need to read, and URL shortcuts are provided to check for updates. Just run it and follow the prompts.

3) Using the Builder

* Winborg_Builder.exe -- this is the file to run when you want to start building. You have the option of running it in Auto mode, or Step-by-Step mode. Auto will run the scripts without stopping until the section where you are asked if you want to make the DVD image. Step-by-Step mode allows you to step thru the 25 sections that comprise the builder. If you need to stop the build in the middle, or want to start from a particular step, you can.

* Clear_Build.exe -- this is a small utility that will clear out any build files from any previous builds. This is actually a part of Winborg_Builder.exe but i have made it a stand-alone utility in order to easily clear a build. I use it when i am moving the build folder from one location to another (eg from Home to Work). Without it, you will be carrying around extra files you don't need to lug around.

* settings.ini -- this is the settings file for Winborg_Builder.exe -- with this file you can set the work directory. This is useful if you have 2 or more physical HDDs -- set the work folder to a different drive than the one holding the build files.

* Build_log.txt -- this is a time-stamped log file produced as the builder runs. It is useful for trouble-shooting and will also provide the time it takes to perform each step.

The Link:
WinborgXP.Builder.Edition.v1.0-SOPORIFIC.7z  [4.36 Gb]
MD5: A85796D8D20909E90AB0CBEAF7BA1028
Please note: this version is based upon the December 2010 release. A newer version based on June 2011 will be coming soon.


If you want to build your own Winborg XP grab the builder, if you are happy with the pre-prepared version then grab the latest pre-built edition.

To all that are having problems:

- please double-check that you have burnt the DVD properly. I have seen errors that look like hardware config problems but instead was caused by errors on the DVD.

- sometimes you have to fiddle with your BIOS settings to get the correct hardware config. Please read your manual back to front. Even read the chapters in the languages other than the ones you understand - hey, you never know.

- other than that there's not much you can do unfortunately. How about trying the CD version?

- regarding the question about the 3rd party applications, yes, if you choose to install them, that's it, there is nothing else to do, they are already cracked and ready to go.

- IF YOU NEED FURTHER HELP WITH YOUR HARDWARE PROBLEMS: please do the following before going any further:

1) please confirm that the copy of the DVD you burnt is totally correct, ie you have verified it is bit perfect. Bad DVD errors can sometimes look like hardware config problems.

2) please test that a normal copy of Windows XP (or some other version that you KNOW works) works on the machine you are having problems with. This narrows down the cause of the problem immensely. If neither version works, then you can stop bothering me, hey. If you can't do this step, fair enough, but if you can, please do.

3) please use the Ultimate Boot CD utilities included on the DVD to test your hardware thoroughly, especially the RAM which is usually to blame when it comes to hardware errors. In my experience anyway. If you know your computer was working properly before trying to install Winborg then you can probably skip this step.

4) then, and only then post your hardware spec list, especially the motherboard name (which i may use to look up the specs for online to research your problem - i said *may*), RAM type (generic vs brand), and a very detailed explanation of what you saw when the problem occurred.

5) do this for me and i will promise you i won't cease until you are experiencing the wonders of winborg.

I know you can't wait but don't worry ... in the end, you will be assimilated. It is your destiny.

hey there,

i'm listening to all feedback ... all requests (so far) will be granted if at all possible ... if it doesn't get included, i tried my best but it couldn't be installed silently. If it can't be installed silently there's no point wasting space that could be used for others that can be done silently. This is a big thing for me ... this DVD is for ordinary folks as well as computer heads like me. The ordinary folk in general can't do all the steps necessary to 'crack' a program so we have to do it for them.

If anyone gives me a app that is already packaged to be installed silently, then it is 99.99% likely to be included. Just give me a URL to download from ... any size is fine, i have wizzbang speed broadband. In particular, i like AutoIT packages ... i just love the automation as everything is done for you in front of your eyes to install the program. The only thing is AutoIT is very hard to get right.

Edited .. please don't dodge the word sensors ~ARCH

[The number '1 centillion' is a 1 with 600 zeros following it, the same as saying 10 to the power of 600. Really, it is, look it up. It's useful to know the names of really big numbers at times like these.]

EDIT: ok, i won't dodge the sensors - i've made my point :)

You installed MS .NetFramework 1.1 and i was supposed to inform you that this will disrupt the auto login for the administrator account. The username is "administrator" and the password is blank. To restore the auto login, use TweakUI (control panel) -- its under Logon - you want AutoLogon -- click the box that says "logon automatically as startup."

Re: Extracting DVD

Postby soporific » Mon Mar 17, 2008 4:24 pm

goodmore wrote:To help out the not so tech people ( including myself ) how do you extract the DVD? Do you extract the DVD and run the patch after? Thank You

OK, here's how you do it:

1. Open Windows Explorer (START -> PROGRAMS -> ACCESSORIES -> Windows Explorer)

2. Inside Windows Explorer, in the left-hand side pane, open up My Computer (or The Collective) so you can see all the drives attached to your computer (C:, D:, etc)

3. On the C: drive, create a new folder called 'winborg' so you then have a path called c:\winborg available to put the contents of the DVD into. You can create a new folder from the file menu.

4. Still using Windows Explorer, locate the drive that contains the DVD. Select it the in left-hand pane, and all the contents should appear in the right-hand side. Select all the contents (hit CTRL A after clicking once anywhere inside the pane) and then use the drag-and-drop feature of windows to copy the contents into the new folder you created on the C: drive (just click on one of the files you have selected and drag it, which will drag all the files, to the new folder) . You will need 5.8 gigs of free space to do this.

5. Once the files have finished copying, now you can use the fix. Just extract the zipped archive and run the file inside. You can simply use the default answers for the prompts. It takes 2 seconds to apply the fix.

6. The last thing is to make the image. Use the MakeDVD.bat file (inside the MakeDVD folder) to do this. You will probably need to adjust the file in order to make it work -- it is currently set to make the DVD image on the E: drive. If you don't have a hard disk at that location, it won't allow you to continue. It isn't that hard to change the file but if you do find it confusing, then just say so and tell me what you don't understand.

7. That's it. Just burn the image like you did the original.

i'm sorry this has happened to you, but what has happened is that your anti-virus was set to automatically deleted suspected files. Usually you would have had to set that yourself but its also possible you were unaware of this feature. Recently, some anti-virus companies have been black-listing perfectly legit files and these have been causing many many false positives. The files that are black-listed that shouldn't be are those that are used to silently run things in the background so the user is unaware anything is happening. Its obvious to see why this could be a security risk, but it also causes this problem when these files are being used for legitimate purposes, ie performing automated tasks on unattended boot DVDs. AVAST and AVG are the worst culprits. They have quickly become the ENEMY of file sharers the world over. PLEASE DO NOT USE THESE SCUMBAG APPLICATIONS!

Fix for Missing Languages

Instructions:

1) download this file:

Code: Select all

http://soporific.dsleague.com/files/Add-all-Languages.zip


2) extract the zip file contents onto the target machine that needs languages restored. Inside ZIP file is only one file and its called "Add-all-Languages.inf" -- right-click it and choose to INSTALL

3) files will start to copy over, then stop and ask you for a Source CD. You can use ANY Windows XP disc -- simply use the Winborg DVD, or something else, and point to a i386 folder. On the Winborg DVD, the best i386 folder to use (there are 3) is the one at this location:

D:\z-OS\Standard\I386\

assuming your DVD drive is the letter D:

4) after its all finished, reboot, and you should be able to use all East-Asian Languages (actually all languages get re-installed).

I hope this all goes swell.

Sop.

For those interested in something else i've had a hand in, the new LastXP v22 is out, go here:

viewtopic.php?f=20&t=137919

If you are from Great Britain and you have a version of Winborg installed that is starting to fail vaildation, i fully recommend installing the new LastXP, it will solve the problem.

Yeah cheers again soporific for all the hard work and a great looking release.

Just wondered though, out of the latest LastXP and this release. What would you say was the better release and why?

If there is any differences at all?

Would it just be the Windows 7 look on this one, that makes things different?

re: apps library -- nope sorry to say, no eta.

re: diffs between LastXP and the Borg -- not a lot. The two main creators of both systems have been mates for a while now and there has been a bit of a convergence. However, there are still main differences:

* LastXP is for people keen on creating a unattended DVD OS installation disk that they can mod to suit their circumstances. U can use it as it comes out of the box, but you are missing out on a lot. Still, no biggie. All the options actually make it a bit difficult to use, some people get confused but then again, its not really targetted at those people. Its more for IT enthusiasts and they can generally work it out for themselves. There is some help available and a good support network.

* Winborg XP is for the masses. You get 3 options of OS but apart from that, you get what is served up. The apps you get to choose but you can as well on LastXP. But Winborg is much easier to understand, there's much more help scattered thru the project, and the apps system is easier to transport and use. I purposely made it so it can be used by people who can't use computers much at all. These people would be lost with LastXP, but Winborg they could probably just manage.

i hope this helps clear things up.

The Windows7 theme was a very late addition -- its not in the current LastXP

Sorry Stoepsel, I should have read the rules more closely. I don't understand from the rules and my limited computer knowledge, however, how I am meant to get the files to Soporific, they are freely downloadable nvidia drivers. Can I list the exact names of the files here so that Soporific can google them himself? Thing is, I am trying to minimise his workload as he is doing me (and us all) a massive favour, in the same way you and your colleagues are, what with doing this all on a volunteer basis. Could you please advise?

Soporific and Stoepsel - I've tried PM-ing you and it says the PMs are in the outbox and it gives a time when they were sent but if I go to my sent box they don't appear there! I feel like I am having one of those days.

thanks guys,

PMs are being rejected for the same reason the post has been rejected.

I will not relax the rules when you can simply email Soporific the info he needs.

fair enuff, we've switched to email. I understand that the no direct links rule is there for probably the most important reason there is, i just thought maybe the context meant we could open the gate for like 2 secs. I fully understand the way it is now. Stoepsel, thanks for your understanding and patience in dealing with this small transgression.

Re: WinBorg.XP.DVD.August.(2009).(Released)

Postby soporific » Wed Sep 02, 2009 3:43 pm

WinBorg XP August 2009 DVD

What is Winborg XP?

If you boot with this DVD and start one of the setup routines, this will clean install a corporate edition of Windows XP Pro SP3 updated to the month of release. The aim is for you to be able to stick this DVD in, quickly get setup running, and then when setup finally stops, your computer is ready to use. There are no steps in between, you don't need to do a thing, you get a fully unattended installation of everything. This means all your device drivers installed and no critical updates need installing. You just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Actually, there are some options you can select, in particular, the Driver Packs Selector is something you'll want to look out for as the operating system is installed because you can choose extra driver packs that aren't selected by default and you can also un-select some to save some time for the install. You can also set the type of screen resolution you have - standard or widescreen - this will make the end result a lot more satisfying to gaze upon.

Winborg XP was created by BartOfBorg. Further development since August 2006 by Soporific.

DVD Boot Menu

Image

3 different flavours of Windows XP Professional SP3 to choose from:
- the choices involve whether you want:
> to use the driverpacks
> to install the OS without any tweaks or addons
> to install the WinBorg theme which is the logon screen and the name of 'My Computer' is renamed to 'The Collective'. The alternative is to install the OS without these Borg elements.

Image

There's a tools menu available with a choice set of tools to help you with your hardware if need be.

Image

The install theme

The setup billboard screen theme has been split in 2. The first part is Matrix inspired while the second is all about the Borg.

Image

Driverpacks

The driverpacks and screen resolution selection utility starts after your PC first reboots during the installation of the operating system. This is a good thing to watch out for because you can select extra driverpacks that aren't selected by default (as shown below). It starts after your PC reboots for the first time during setup (after the blue screen part). New in the November edition of Winborg XP is the PhysX driverpack which provides extra juicy drivers for the latest graphics cards.

You can also set the style of your screen resolution. For extra impact of your new operating system right out of the box, please set this to your usual screen resolution. There are only 2 options - Standard and Widescreen. Hopefully you all know which is which ;) -- if you don't and you have a widescreen monitor, the resolution is automatically set to 1024 x 768 (or higher) and this may not look very good. You can simply change it in Display Setting like normal, i'm just saying here that it will aid in giving you the pleasure of a good looking PC when setup is all finished.

Image

The Operating System

This is the scene at the end of setup:

Image

...

Image

The OS is Windows XP Professional with SP3 v5512 integrated. You should not need to download any further hotfixes, and you should be able to 'validate' at any time with any OS you install from this DVD. When you visit Windows Update, you do not have to download or install anything in order to use it, the necessary files have already been integrated.

Logon Themes
Knowing in advance what the logon screen is going to look like may significantly influence your decision with which option to go with. Here is the list of all differences between the OS options on offer:

Vanilla: only update and visual style addons were integrated, the theme and icons are untouched, it will look and feel like a standard installation of Windows XP Professional. I have applied a few tweaks but they were only to get rid of the very worst and most obvious of the XP annoyances, eg, the Search Assistant dog -- he was put down without mercy i'm afraid to say. Use this option if you want to tweak and theme Windows XP yourself. You are still able to use unsigned themes, i applied that tweak to this option also.

Standard: all useful addons i could find were integrated into both Standard and Winborg. See the list above. Kel's Uber Addon was not integrated. Rick's V'ISO Vista Icons replacement pack was integrated into both Standard and Winborg except the logon screens are different.

Winborg: Kel's Uber Addon was integrated, the sysutilities collection was installed, the default Task Manager is Prio 1.98 and My Computer gets renamed to The Collective. That's it.

The standard & winborg options logon screen:

Image

The vanilla option logon screen is the normal one you've probably seen a million times.

Essential Tweaks
- To find out what essential tweaks will be installed, click here: Essential Tweaks

Post-Install Applications Menu

Image
[click for larger image]

- you can choose groups of selections or you can go through the menu and choose for yourself.
- all your selections are silently installed, you don't need to do nothin with serials, cracks or anything else, all are ready to use after rebooting your PC.

Image

- after installations have finished, you should see a dialog box like the one in the screenshot above asking if you want to reboot.

Known Issues:

There is a bug with the Windows Time service in the latest edition of WinBorg XP. It appears to be running as a service, but in fact its not.
All you need to do to repair it is copy the following text to a text file, rename it so it has a CMD extension (ie call it something like "Fix_Win_Time.cmd") and then run the file.
or download the zip file which has the script already prepared and ready to run.
http://soporific.dsleague.com/files/Fix ... s_Time.zip

@echo off

echo.
echo Hi there. If you find your Windows Time isn't working as it should
echo. then continue with this little script. Press any key to start...
echo.
PAUSE >nul
echo.
echo.
echo Fixing Windows Time service ...
echo.
net stop w32time
w32tm /unregister
w32tm /register
net start w32time
echo.
echo.
echo There, all done. Press any key to exit...
echo.
PAUSE >nul


These are the instructions to remake the DVD with the fix included:

1) Copy DVD contents to your HDD
2) create new text file and put this into it (all stuff between <CODE STARTS> and <CODE ENDS>)

<CODE STARTS>

@echo off
echo.
echo Fixing Windows Time service ...
echo.
net stop w32time
w32tm /unregister
w32tm /register
net start w32time
echo.
echo.
echo ... all done.
WAIT 1

<CODE ENDS>
- blank lines aren't important to the code so don't be too fussed about this.
- save text file as "Fix_for_Windows_Time.cmd" (make sure you get the extension right - choose to view extensions)

3) Put "Fix_for_Windows_Time.cmd" file into this folder - "\UserSettings\code"

4) Search for "1stStart.bat" in the same folder as above, choose to edit it, and insert these lines before the line that starts with "shutdown" :

<CODE STARTS>

:: Fix Windows Time
CALL "%CDROM%\UserSettings\code\Fix_for_Windows_Time.cmd"

<CODE ENDS>
- blank lines aren't important to the code so don't be too fussed about this.
- save the file

5) Now use the MakeDVD utility that is in the MakeDVD folder to remake the DVD image. Then burn the image, and then you're good to go :)

WinBorg XP December 2009 DVD

Image

What is Winborg XP?

If you boot with this DVD and start one of the setup routines, this will clean install a corporate edition of Windows XP Pro SP3 updated to the month of release. The aim is for you to be able to stick this DVD in, quickly get setup running, and then when setup finally stops, your computer is ready to use. There are no steps in between, you don't need to do a thing, you get a fully unattended installation of everything. This means all your device drivers installed and no critical updates need installing. You just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Actually, there are some options you can select, in particular, the Driver Packs Selector is something you'll want to look out for as the operating system is installed because you can choose extra driver packs that aren't selected by default and you can also un-select some to save some time for the install. You can also set the type of screen resolution you have - standard or widescreen - this will make the end result a lot more satisfying to gaze upon.

Winborg XP was created by BartOfBorg. Further development since August 2006 by Soporific.

DVD Boot Menu

Image

3 different flavours of Windows XP Professional SP3 to choose from:
- the choices involve whether you want:
> to use the driverpacks
> to install the OS without any tweaks or addons
> to install either the standard tweaked OS or the WinBorg one. See below for more info on the differences.

Image

There's a tools menu available with a choice set of tools to help you with your hardware if need be.

Image

The install theme

The setup billboard screen theme has been split in 2. The first part is Matrix inspired while the second is all about the Borg.

Image

Driverpacks

The driverpacks and screen resolution selection utility starts after your PC first reboots during the installation of the operating system. This is a good thing to watch out for because you can select extra driverpacks that aren't selected by default (as shown below). It starts after your PC reboots for the first time during setup (after the blue screen part). New in the November edition of Winborg XP is the PhysX driverpack which provides extra juicy drivers for the latest graphics cards.

You can also set the style of your screen resolution. For extra impact of your new operating system right out of the box, please set this to your usual screen resolution. There are only 2 options - Standard and Widescreen. Hopefully you all know which is which ;) -- if you don't and you have a widescreen monitor, the resolution is automatically set to 1024 x 768 (or higher) and this may not look very good. You can simply change it in Display Setting like normal, i'm just saying here that it will aid in giving you the pleasure of a good looking PC when setup is all finished.

Image

The Operating System

This is the scene at the end of setup:

Image

The OS is Windows XP Professional with SP3 v5512 integrated. You should not need to download any further hotfixes, and you should be able to 'validate' at any time with any OS you install from this DVD. When you visit Windows Update, you do not have to download or install anything in order to use it, the necessary files have already been integrated.

Vista icons package
--- Vanilla: the original icons were preserved.
--- Standard: XPtsp
--- Winborg: XPtsp

Image

Pre-installed apps and updates
Vanilla OS option:

- Adobe Shockwave 11.5.0.602
- Mozilla Firefox 3.5.5
- Flash for Internet Explorer
- Java Runtime Environment 6 update 17
- Sop's Visual Styles Pack
- VMware Tools

Standard & Winborg OS options:
(all Vanilla option apps, plus:)
- SPTD driver v1.62
- Universal Extractor 1.61
- MS .Net Framework AIO
- XviD 1.2.1 (all OS options except Vanilla)

OS Options
Here is the list of all differences between the OS options on offer:

Vanilla: only update and visual style addons were integrated, the theme and icons are untouched, it will look and feel like a standard installation of Windows XP Professional. I have applied a few tweaks but they were only to get rid of the very worst and most obvious of the XP annoyances, eg, the Search Assistant dog -- he was put down without mercy. Use this option if you want to tweak and theme Windows XP yourself. You are still able to use unsigned themes, i applied that tweak to this option also.

Standard: all useful addons i could find were integrated into both Standard and Winborg. See the add-ons list below. Kel's Uber Addon was not integrated. Rick's V'ISO Vista Icons replacement pack was integrated into both Standard and Winborg.

Winborg: My Computer gets renamed to The Collective. This option is the most heavily tweaked and has the most pre-installed applications. See the add-ons list below.

Your control panel will have 60 objects after install, and the apps are all current as of date of release.

WinBorg XP Builder January 2010

What is the Winborg XP Builder?

Awesome is what it is! I dunno 'bout you, but i find it pretty hard to make decisions on what to include and what to leave off each and every Winborg XP disc i release. The choices are many! Update Packs, NLite tweaks, RVM addons, Driverpacks, Driverpack defaults, post-install hotfixes, post-install apps, Apps library contents, wallpapers, themes, setup music, and more! Rather than let me decide, why don't you decide?

I have written the builder so ANYONE can build their own WinBorg XP DVD. well, nearly everyone - please see the requirements below. If you simply want to use the default settings -- download the builder, run it, and make your DVD image. This will be exactly as if i built the image and released it. Or, you can use the Builder Options utility and totally customize the DVD for your own needs.

So, i am NOT going to release so many discs from now on. Maybe once a year. What i WILL be doing is releasing updates to the Builder :)

For this initial release, you will need to already have the December 2009 release to get access to the apps library and DVD tools. If you don't have Winborg XP December 2009, you can still use the builder to make a totally up-to-date DVD that will install Windows XP you just won't be able to use the apps library or DVD tools. I plan to release an apps package ...

Instructions

1) System requirements

* a windows machine -- the builder will only work on a Windows system (it uses Windows scripting). I have only tested this on an XP machine, but i can't see any reason why it won't also work on Vista and Win7 machines. Please report your experiences with using the Builder on PCs with these OSes.
* Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 or above is required for some programs that are used by the builder to work.
* English language -- i'm pretty sure you will need to use an English OS in order for all the scripting to work. Feel free to try this out in a VM with a different language OS and report your experiences.
* enough disk space -- the builder will contain nearly 8 gigs of data by the time it has finished.
* Time -- the builder takes anywhere from 30 mins to 90 mins to run depending on the speed of your PC and whether its the first run or not.

2) Preparation

* Builder_Options.exe -- this is a script that acts like a guided tour of all the things you can customize on the DVD, and will also help keep it updated. It will open each folder location for you, open any readme.txt files you need to read, and URL shortcuts are provided to check for updates. Just run it and follow the prompts.

* Some files and folders were left out of this package. They can be found on Winborg XP December 2009. They are:
\DVD_files\Apps
\DVD_files\BOOT
\DVD_files\HBCD
\DVD_files\WPI

Copy the contents of these folders into the corresponding ones within this package - you should find the folder empty except for a readme.txt file. They are not necessary to install the OS as they are only the apps library some of the tools from the tools menu.

These folders will also be released for those who don't yet have a Winborg XP DVD.


3) Using the Builder

* Winborg_Builder.exe -- this is the file to run when you want to start building. You have the option of running it in Auto mode, or Step-by-Step mode. Auto will run the scripts without stopping until the section where you are asked if you want to make the DVD image. Step-by-Step mode allows you to step thru the 25 sections that comprise the builder. If you need to stop the build in the middle, or want to start from a particular step, you can. You can use your PC while the builder is running, except for the parts where the builder needs to control windows. For these sections, please let the builder have control of your PC.

* Clear_Build.exe -- this is a small utility that will clear out any build files from any previous builds. This is actually a part of Winborg_Builder.exe but i have made it a stand-alone utility in order to easily clear a build. I use it when i am moving the build folder from one location to another (eg from Home to Work). Without it, you will be carrying around extra files you don't need to lug around.

* settings.ini -- this is the settings file for Winborg_Builder.exe -- with this file you can set the word directory. This is useful if you have 2 or more physical HDDs -- set the work folder to a different drive than the one holding the build files.

* Build_log.txt -- this is a time-stamped log file produced as the builder runs. It is useful for trouble-shooting and will also provide the time it takes to perform each step.See first post for more details (coming soon).

KNOWN ISSUES: The first time you run the builder, the progress bar says at the end you have reached Step 27 of 25. Oops :) ... this is because on subsequent build, you skip 2 steps. I will release an update pack soonish that fixes this and a few errors in the readme.txt files. Nothing major :)

Apps Library Update Pack

It is designed to update the apps library for Winborg XP Builder edition. This version assumes you have copied the apps library from Winborg XP December 2009 to the Builder folder.

Instructions:


Simply run the "WinBorg_Builder_Apps_UpdatePack_01.exe" file. What it does is this:

1) asks you to choose the Winborg_Builder folder ... and checks the location you choose to make sure its correct. Click cancel to stop the update.
2) after confirming step 1, it then deletes all old apps from the library
3) then it copies the new apps and config file.
4) you will see a message when it has finished.

N.B -- if you haven't copied the apps library from Winborg XP December 2009 to the Builder folder, you can still use this update pack, but not all apps will be available from the library when you go to use it.
