Topic: DP Base [all versions] and the XP 'Repair' Option
Hello, just registered to ask for help on an issue I've noticed with DP Base 8.05.
I work at a computer shop and make Windows discs with via RVM and drivers from DP integrated to use with Windows installs and often with repair installs. What I've encountered since 8.05 was released is that any disc I make after using DP Base 8.05 on it doesn't see the current Windows install as a valid target for a repair install and only offers to install fresh along side it. If I use a vanilla SP3 disc or only integrate updates it works as normal, but as soon as I add driver packs to a vanilla disc or one with updates integrated it breaks the repair ability. I have yet to test with text-mode driver support disabled, that was going to be my next step, but without that feature the disc won't be usable anyway...
Note that with SP2 and the previous 7.x DP repair installs worked fine. It also works with sp3 + 7.x DP but that seems to have other issues with the DP fake setup not going off right.
