Re: fake setup called himself instead original setup.exe

DriverPacks don't support Win32 "upgrades".  This is in our FAQ and Tutorial.  You'll need to back up your data then format and install clean otherwise you can install clean to a new hard drive and copy your files over.
(the winnt.sif entries break the win32 upgrade process).
I don't know how to fix what you broke.
