    SSE2 CPU PATH
    I SHOULD INSTALL ? OR NO ?
    MY CPU _ INTEL CORE 2 DUO E4600 X86 _
    • This commment is unpublished.
      Ramsey · 3 years ago
      @Grissa If it installs then it works. And this is only for Pentium 3 CPUs and below.
    • This commment is unpublished.
      Guest16346 · 3 years ago
      @Grissa No need to ask Ramsey endlessly about every small thing. If CPU-Z shows that it supports SSE2, then you don't need to rely on the patch. It's for ancient potatoes that don't support it.

      @Guest16346 I think that Grissa guy is literally retarded with all the comments I see from him is worded and all his technical question regarding his incapability with technical details. I have no problems with actual retards but if he is that incapable, then he should stick with vanilla Windows.

      Guest16346 · 3 years ago
      @Hyde I'd not say that, though. I have a feeling that he's just an un-techsavvy person whose English isn't a mother tongue. The nick sounds French, or Moroccan, or Tunisian for me, so yeah. They should use a good translator like DeepL if their English is bad, and that translator does wonders, compared to Google's.

    What does vanilla mean in this case? It sounds more like vanilla Minecraft which is just the plain Java edition without any mods at all. Does the XP iso come prepackaged with the mods and tweaks we're used too? Also what's with the key patcher? I thought this build of XP was preactivated.
    • This commment is unpublished.
      Ramsey · 3 years ago
      @Nick The (Vanilla) is the default one. And the "Optional Patch Integrator" script will create a customized one with the experimental patches you selected, and this one will then be called (Customized Option x,x,x,x,x,x,x).

      Nick · 3 years ago
      @Ramsey Thanks for the clarification, but what are the files in the WinXPPx86IE folder used for? They look like key patchers and I thought it was preactivated. Is that for a just in case scenario?
    • This commment is unpublished.
      Ramsey · 3 years ago
      @Nick It's per-activated. This are only tools in case someone needs them. For example, if someone wants to change the CD-Key with the CD-Key they bought.
    • This commment is unpublished.
      Nick · 3 years ago
      @Ramsey Thank you again for clarifying very quickly. I kinda thought that was the case. If the target system is an old Pentium 4 from 2004, I can disregard the extra tweaks right? I'm assuming because most of the extra tweaks not baked into the iso are for newer computers and the SSE2 patch is for even older computers.

    Hey Ramsey, find your "distro" because of getting nostalgic and wanting to play games with my Race Wheel attached to the gameport. After wondering why its not recognized as gamecontroller I eventually found this line in your Readme:

    * Nothing was removed that could cause System or Software problems, only outdated and unneeded components were removed. 5. 3rd-party Drivers: "Display Adapters", "ISDN", "Logitech WingMan", "Microsoft SideWinder", "Scanners", "Sony Jog Dial", "Toshiba DVD decoder card".
    Well - SideWinder drivers is what I desperately need, as there is no other source of drivers but the ones Microsoft shipped with the OS. How to get them back or find them in an original ISO ?
    Thank you very much.
    • This commment is unpublished.
      Ramsey · 3 years ago
      @andekande
      You can use the one from the CD of your Game Controller or even better download the Up-to-Date driver from the internet.
    • This commment is unpublished.
      Guest16346 · 3 years ago
      @andekande Or alternatively download the original unmodified ISO within the install., mount the ISO via ImDisk & pop the Race Wheel in. (or alternatively if it doesn't automatically install the drivers, install the driver via devmgmt.msc and direct it to the mounted ISO (either via the special CD/DVD option or manually).

      Was going to say about whether popping the clean ISO in would restore unrelated modified files, but these ones already have a digital signature so no need to worry about the file protection going apeshit.

      BTW normally I'd recommend that you get it from the-eye's MSDN mirror but it is currently offline now, so get the ISO from this mirror of the-eyes MSDN mirror: https://msdn.hackerc.at/
      Get en_windows_xp_professional_with_service_pack_3_x86_cd_vl_x14-73974.iso since that ISO is the closest to the base that Integral Edition is built on.

      andekande · 3 years ago
      @andekande Very appreciated. Got it installed, Here a summary:
      - MS Sidewinder Drivers on vogons are for Win98, the Software for XP does not come with drivers
      - Mounting the original XP SP3 CD should be the first choice while letting install wizard look through CD

      I did go for a more manual route though and found out that swnt.inf contains Sidewinder Game Controller drivers for Gameport devices. Extracted this together with msgame.syssw_effct.dll and
      sw_wheel.dll from .cab and installed the .inf

      Quiet a bit of an effort for what usually was designed to be plug and play.
      Anyhow, now happily driving with that wheel in a Camaro on Hawaii ;-)

    Hello all
    New to site today. I am trying to resurrect an old xp pro system and get all my updates. I have my original disc and product key. I am not a high level techie so I need help. I know to burn the iso for the xp pro Windows XP Professional SP3 x86 - Integral Edition 2020.4.14 (Operating Systems) download but I tried another product from a different vendor ( ALL PC World) but when I entered my original SP2 version from the burned iso file on boot up it did not recognize it. Need help.

      infuscomus · 3 years ago
      @BobOne Hi,
      you don't need a product key with integral edition, one is already included in an unattended install script on the integral edition ISO
    • This commment is unpublished.
      BobOne · 3 years ago
      @infuscomus so I don't need the key, and just boot to cd or usb using the burned iso? Correct?

    When I try to install the Patched version (AHCI, xHCI, 128GB) on another laptop it goes in a Blue Screen after some seconds on First Part. I tried with that two fixes, to no avail.
    IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL - 0x0A (0x08, 0x02, 0x0, 0x8080A6FC)
    • This commment is unpublished.
      Ramsey · 3 years ago
      @ArminC First try one patch at a time and also try different ACPI patches. This patches are no guaranty that they will work on all computers that's why i didn't integrate them by default.
    • This commment is unpublished.
      ArminC · 3 years ago
      @Ramsey Ok, so I went directly with the Vanilla one, just for test purpose. It still crashes. Laptop's spec. Do I miss something?
    • This commment is unpublished.
      Ramsey · 3 years ago
      @ArminC Then this is most likely a SATA driver problem. Try to use only the Universal SATA/AHCI driver option in the Optional Patch Integrator.
    • This commment is unpublished.

      @Ramsey Amm.. I thought about this too.. If I'm not wrong, I tried with that one too.

    ochentay4 · 3 years ago
    @RAMSEY thanks for this release, optional components are great as some of us had problems and do not like all the new additions for all the systems we have (specially the older ones), but I miss Wifi Drivers (as Wifi XP drivers are difficult to come by), maybe they could be added as an option? Many of us do not care for a bigger iso, because we dont use CD anymore to install XP. Could you think about it?
    Of course the project is getting bigger and bigger over time, but its getting better than ever and has become my default way to install XP for a long time.
    • This commment is unpublished.
      Ramsey · 3 years ago
      @ochentay4 If you go to the Driver Pack BASE forum their you can download all the Driver Packs you want and then simply put them into the ZIP Archive file in ".\OEM\RunOnce\Programs\Driver Packs\Driver Packs v21.4.2018.7z".
    • This commment is unpublished.
      Rei · 3 years ago
      @ochentay4 Take the longer route like me & just download your Wi-Fi drivers as well as other drivers in general that you can find from your hardware manufacturer's website as they are always the latest version, then install them after you install WinXP.
      CD installations are for the few left that still use CDs to install WinXP.
      @Ramsey But I do agree that route should be abandoned as prolly every motherboard & laptop since the early 2000s already has USB ports. Most old disc drive prolly already has weak optical lens & replacing them especially for laptop models are expensive or even n/a. Or take the linux distro route by having one download for CD installation & another download for USB/DVD installer.

      @Fisherman Yes the Vanilla is the one that has no experimental Patches included like the 2020 January version and the once before. Vanilla version = Stock version / Default version / Standard version ... :)

    A suggestion for the next version of the patch integrator:

    for the USB 3.0 driver integration component -
    add registry entries for the USB 3.0 drivers into HIVESYS.INF so that on first restart during the GUI part of XP installation if you have mouse/KB plugged into any USB 3.0 ports they should work.

      @infuscomus You mean to put all the USB 3.0 .inf register entries directly into the HIVESYS.INF file?

      @Ramsey yeah, including the parts that create a service so the drivers can start themselves early

      @infuscomus
      If you remove the DriverPacks BASE do you still have the USB 3.0 problem at the GUI mode? I found 3 conflicts with the USB 3.0 and DriverPacks BASE.

      1. DriverPacks BASE replaces the DevicePath register entries with it's own entry at the installation stage instead of adding them to the exiting once . :@
      2. DriverPacks BASE (MassStorage Pack) has the same USB 3.0 files in this Pack and overrides some part of the patched USB 3.0 driver files at the installation stage. (doh)
      3. The DriverPacks BASE (Chipset Pack) will make the USB 3.0 for some reason unusable. (headbang)

      I could fix the problem 1 and 2. (penguin) But i don't know whats up with the Chipset Pack. (drunk)

      @Ramsey >3. The DriverPacks BASE (Chipset Pack) will make the USB 3.0 for some reason unusable. Banging head on wall
      There's a similar problem for Win2K that force-installing the chipset drivers might mess up with USB2: https://msfn.org/board/topic/179665-running-windows-2000-on-modern-motherboards-usb-issues/
      Maybe it would be a good idea to remove the Chipset Pack and instead direct the users to get them manually for ex. this for Intel chipsets: https://www.win-raid.com/t895f42-Intel-Chipset-Device-quot-Drivers-quot-INF-files.html
      I especially recommend Fernando's clean AiO pack, since you don't have to rely on the bloat Intel includes within them like the software installer. You just update the necessary devices that require it with this pack.

    Hey ramsey,
    Not meaning be a dkhead but i think anyone who found his way up to here in 2020 has enough amount of knowledge to install drivers themselves. The auto driver thingy that is included in the pack is installing generic drivers but not manufacturer spesific ones which usually occurs conflicts even after reinstalling correct ones.. Maybe you could use the valuable space for some other stuff that is optional. Thank you for your support, big fan of integral xp.

      @SA Sorry but cant agree with you. Network drivers are essential and you can change later if you dont like them. Networking is essential to transfer files and do stuff.

      @ochentay4 No need to be sorry friend. I agree your point as well only if the driverpack just installs network drivers. Network drivers are essential until driverpack spreads like a virus to install audio, infrared,pcmcia card readers, vga and other devices..

      @SA In the new version everything is now optional.

      @SA hi
      what conflicts you talk about ?
      i always install my drivers after and they work just fine
      is there any more official detaille about that or it's just your personal opinion/experiance ?
