  • Minlogon and now no plug and play

    Okay, I nLited my Windows XP SP2 installation removing as much as I could, and i got it down to about 300MB. Well, I installed it and then installed minlogon and now my plug and play doesn't work. It works fine now that I reverted back to winlogon.

    Any ideas?

      Revert back to Minlogon and try it again.

        Well, it seems to discover my WLAN adapter (which I have drivers for installed), but it will not detect new hardware.

          What new hardware are you trying to install, you gotta be careful with nLite as well make sure you have drivers slipstreamed with nlite for all your hardware before hand..

            Well, I'd just like for it to detect new hardware and ask for the drivers. I'm just trying with different USB devices I have...

              That's not a minlogon thing. Check your nlite settings. There's actually a registry setting (or a service I think Shell Hardware Detection) for this. I'm at the Frankfurt airport waiting for a connecting flight so I can't really look up my notes right now, but I'm pretty sure it's not a minlogon thing.

                Its definitelly generic nLite problem. And I thought I am the only one so I did not report it in nLite forum. Sometimes, my USB flashdisk (correctly recognised, detected and working before on same OS) does not get detected and I see an "USB hub" icon in systray instead nof "Safely remove device" icon. No matter how many times I unplug and plug it again, it never gets detected properly until I reboot system. Then it most likely works correctly for some time. It also has to be said mentioned flashdisk works fawlessly on same development computer with unstripped WinXP of same version with same drivers etc.

                  Also, check out which services you removed with nlite.. then, look them up @ blackviper.com to see what they do.. (or atleast, did..)

                    It has nothing to do with services...

                      Whay version of nlite did you use? There was a usb problem with the early .99.5 betas.

                        I don't know if this is relevant or not but, I've got a USB device (San Disk Cruzer flash memmory device) that is rarely detected properly on almost any machine... until I reboot the machine... I use this device as a "toolbox" for software when I'm trouble shooting a machine or what not..

                          I have this problem. I was originally using Nlite+Minlogon but centrafuse wouldn't embed apps with it... Seems to be a common problem, veetid said he won't fix it for nlite users.

                          Well so I did a standard XP installed, and now used minlogon on that.

                          Won't detect new hardware!

                              When I first read about minilogon I thought it was one of the best Windows XP hacks out. I installed it on three customers systems and immediatly ran into really strange problems. Here is what I was able to determine.

                              Nlite'd install of Windows XP with SP2

                              Four identical systems are setup. One acting as a wireless basestation with no need for boot optmization so once XP was installed it was left alone.

                              I ran bootvis and did the minilogon hack on the other three. I lost the ability to plug in any USB Hard drive. USB CD-Roms and my USB mouse worked fine but all three systems would not regonise any of my three USB Drives. I was unable to browse computers or shared folders in network neighbourhood. I could share a folder on the minilogon systems and then from the unmodified base station view the shares.

                              I ended up just reinstalling XP and not applying the minilogon hack, every thing works ok now.
                              Spent all my money on carputers now I have to work a real job.
