    So I had this problem as well... I don't know if this is wise, but I just held down the escape key to ignore and continue... eventually after complaining about many files the install will continue normally. I haven't had any problems with my "lite" version of XP yet... I haven't done any extensive testing either.... <grin>

    Thanks for the reply... That what i did.After i got it to install, new device manager pops up saying im missing that driver, i think it has to do with the modem drivers that i took off. Looks like ima have to do it all over again.

    Actually, I think it is best if you remove all device drivers in Nlite and then after you have a basic os running download and install the device drivers that are specific to your hardware. Someone correct me if I'm wrong...

    good luck.

    Removing device drivers

    by not installing them in the first place.
    1. nLite your i386 directory.
    2. When done, expand and open SYSSETUP.IN_
    2a. In i386, type "expand -r syssetup.in_"
    2b. Delete syssetup.in_
    2c. Rename syssetup.inf to syssetup.in_
    2d. Windows will not care that you did this when it installs,
    it will just think that the file is 0% compressed
    3. Open this file, and search for [DeviceInfsToInstall]
    4. See all of these INF files? They are responsible for installing drivers. For example, 1394.inf installs firewire, or tries to (it will attempt to detect if it can, and goes to the next INF if it can't, or if it was able to and finished).
    5. Comment out what does not apply to you. Here is an example from my Windows 2000 installation:
    Code:
    ;1394.inf - I don't have firewire
    ;battery.inf - the PC is not a laptop, so I don't care about battery drivers
    cdrom.inf
    flash.inf
    disk.inf
    display.inf
    fdc.inf
    flpydisk.inf
    hal.inf
    input.inf
    keyboard.inf
    ;legcydrv.inf - my pc's new, I don't care about legacy devices
    machine.inf
    mchgr.inf
    ;mdmsetup.inf - no modem
    mf.inf
    monitor.inf
    mshdc.inf
    msmouse.inf
    msports.inf
    multiprt.inf
    ntapm.inf
    netnovel.inf
    netirsir.inf
    ntprint.inf
    ;pcmcia.inf - no pcmcia port
    scsi.inf
    ;smartcrd.inf - no smart card slot
    sti.inf
    ;tape.inf - no tape drive
    usb.inf
    wdmaudio.inf
    volume.inf
    6. It does not matter that this file is modded, because nLite turns digital checking on this file off (obviously it has to, otherwise nLite would never work).
    7. BTW, see [Infs.Always]? See that IE.INF? Not if you selected IE for removal. This is how nLite works. It turns off DigSig checking and deletes the INF file entries for components that you remove.

    In general, to avoid the file not found errors, what's happening is that the files are still in TXTSETUP.SIF. If you keep getting the same errors, and you are at wits' end, write down every file you get an error message about. Then, open TXTSETUP.SIF and comment them out with a semicolon. If you want to be thorough, you can also open LAYOUT.INF and do the same (LAYOUT copies files in the first stage to the temp dir on your HDD, TXTSETUP then copies them in the setup state to their final places in the Windows installation). I am at a loss to explain why you are getting this error. nLite should do the TXTSETUP editing for you (nLite does not edit LAYOUT, however).
