DriverPacks.net has never supported x64 drivers for NT5 platforms.

So... don't know where to find them. 

Some of the included drivers may or may not support x64, if they do it's unintentional and not supported.

x64 in XP was not well implemented, or supported, by MS or the community at large.

Best of luck

the DriverPack-17-Online_395285083.1492980021.exe is not created by us. released by us, or supported by us.

If you need our support you MUST be using one of our official releases offered here

Please ask for help from whomever you received the file from.

Thank you.


nice big_smile

why is the "component" code duplicated?

edit NM x86 and x64  ... duh

If enough people ask... maybe.. probably not. have you contacted them about it?

Really nice pickup frankyer!

you might have gone on to explain that the f7 key will disable the ACPI HAL and, in THEORY, load the standard HAL.

I personally have not tried this with BARTPE and am curious if it works @BartPE.

@ heypilee More info here https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/hel … windows-xp

Techdud added a newer version of 7zin to BASE 10 and unofficially beta released it. (he just substituted the new version).

It's around here somewhere, however Techdud has been MIA for a year or more.

No new "official releases"

I assume that we are talking about a USB keyboard and mouse?

I assume that you have not done a cold reboot. (full power off of PSU).

Did you try BIOS factory settings reset? (update?)

Some MBs allow charging of devices when the CPU is technically off. this would create a situation where USB KB and Mouse do not reset with the system. (Bios setting)

Long time no see, Welcome Back!

Happy Holidays Damnation!


I will have to test it to see... Sounds like an error in the massStorage.ini file... I may not have time until first of the year.

TY for reporting your issue

Happy holidays!

I don't know why you want an active hub (a switch) vs a passive hub.  Knowing that would help us to help you.
"serious problems" is rather vague...
there are print server devices already... Print server devices on google

those are basically smart USB hubs... does that help?


This is a FAQ

You can NOT write the image file to the drive that you are imaging...

they call that cyclic redundancy, they call that cyclic redundancy, they call that cyclic redundancy, they call that cyclic redundancy.


oh my... downloading

Very helpful botus...

Thank you



Dibya is very active with several other projects... He is helping us because it compliments his other work. Please be patient with him and us. We all want the same thing! Since we are all donating our time it is especially important to seem grateful rather than needy. Think this way, How can I help, rather than, why isn't  my free stuff done yet?


Excellent post Botus,

Added code tags for you...

Hmmm, might be a need for script to run an installer. In XP we do this with the DriverPacks Finisher. As far as I know it has not been needed with NT6.  They have taken most of the work out of adding drivers these days.  Try downloading the latest driver from the AMD website << AMD 64 bit reference drivers for example Radeon Software Crimson Edition Beta looks good? >> and install them on a clean installation. Does that work?  (is this a 64 bit machine?)

Nice... Thanks for following up!


Duly noted. Have a great day.

You are welcome sir!

But I will be doing that a lot more as you dive in. Just ask anything if you are not sure or stuck.

99% of the time, the only stupid question is the one not asked.

NP I have trained the best. It's tricky to get it right because it doesn't work the way you would think it would. Once you get it down then it is not so bad. Replacement drivers are always the ones every one screws up, and boy does it cause issues.

the starter course is here... http://forum.driverpacks.net/viewtopic.php?id=2461

this is helpful too... http://forum.driverpacks.net/viewtopic.php?id=445

there is more when we get there... I can always bat cleanup on a nightly (test pack) if you think you have it ready. big_smile I am a busy boy but if you can get 90% of the way there i can tackle the last 10.


PS Mass storage is the hardest pack by far... if you can do Mass then it's all down hill from there big_smile

You are correct. It fails because the ISO is not mounted ofter the reboot. So files are not found.

Try adding the OEM folder to the root of your thumb and see if that makes it all flow nicely.
Or copy the OEM folder to C:\
- it will need to be deleted later

Welcome to DriverPacks.net

Many chipsets that are on new MB have no support for XP from the manufacturer. Nothing we can do there.

Older hardware is supported already... The gap between the two could be filled in by someone. Know anybody?

try this http://samlab.ws/soft/samdrivers/

SamLab has been a valued team member here for many years, He used to leak our test packs on his site and report back here with any issues. Because he and his user base are Russian he would play go between and translate to English for us. That added thousands of Russian users to our testing program. Win , win.

His packs are more current, and he definitely knows the ropes. worth a look.

yup hardware is fine, windows broken. Agreed.
I expected re-enumeration to restore it. Ghost drivers show up in safe mode.

Story: (with relevant point)

I am at a customer premise (CP). Printer will not work. Spent two hours dinking with it, like you have. Finally i get annoyed and go and get an identical printer from the other side of the office. I plug it in... it works fine. Plug the non working printer into the slot the borrowed unit came out of... it works fine. swap them back and it no worky again.  I fixed it by SWAPPING them out. The printers are NOT identical to windows, I suppose so you could connect ten of the same model to one print server PC.

Windows had separate driver stack for each of the printers, one was broken, one was fine. The broken driver stack was tied to a SPECIFIC printer. and to find the fix for the driver for that one certain printer was buried in the registry somewhere? Maybe?  I Swapped the two identical printers out and forgot about it. Why find the needle in the haystack use the other one in the sewing kit big_smile.

I would bet big money you have exactly the same issue. Too bad you don't have an identical burner to prove it out.

I am a computer guy from way back like you and have worked for myself for decades.

Time is money, quickest, easiest (cheapest) first.
                         Unless its personal wink


PS I worked in one of the best shops in the city back in the 90s. Never ever used a wrist strap, ever. Also never had an ESD issue. We used to leave them plugged in, grounding the case. If you are touching the case... and the case is grounded what the h*ll do you need a strap for??? Cases should be grounded, not people. Although I do like people who are grounded that is yet another topic. One thing we did do was to water the carpet, with a watering canfor flowers... LOL. We built high end stuff, daily. NEVER had an ESD incident.  One time a test lead fell into a CRT monitor we were repairing and it fried in spectacular fashion, but never static.

PSS If windows did what it was supposed to do I would be out of a job... right? tongue
