Im running MAME command line for Windows ...  nlited XP not running it though!

There are several version of MAME

MAME command line for Windows (this is what you seek)

Grab the version that matches your rom set here :

http://mamedev.org/oldrel.html

MAME for DOS (it's command line of course)

MAME32 (now called MAMEui) is for windows and a graphical interface, it's great, try it!

I like to couple command line MAME with MALA front end, and use Blue skin

Also if MAME-XP is too stripped down for your application, you could just install regular XP and follow BlackViper's guide to slim it :

Keep me posted :)

Woops, I figured it out... I was launching a 64 bit version of MAME within 32 bit WinXP.  Ugh!

Well that never got answered, I'll take a stab at it :

404 Are you referring to "TinyXP" by "eXPerience" or "MAMExp" recently discussed in this thread ?

Also, Raitsa, I forgot to test that Win7 ISO ... I'll do it now :) Good thing I got it before the site went down :)

I assume the mega upload site w/ ZD7 - Windows 7 x64.

PS What is ZD7 windows 7 anyhow? I noticed some "Superior XP64 " floating around that supposedly can use 128gb of ram and run faster and stripped of bloat version.

Thanks for your response. I was speaking about the tinyxp64 build specifically. Not sure how the services and other apps  differ between the 32bit and x64. I'm assuming there were some things different but since i couldn't find out for sure so i never bothered trying out some of the lastsessions from other XP builds to slipstream my own build.

A word of warning for the DekkerXPX64 iso floating around the interwebz, I used this build only to find out some days later that they botched the wga stuff. The WGA nag screen during startup appears and the build does not let you activate as it's missing some dependencies to allow you to do so. This build gives you constant boot loops during the login process because of this. I have plenty of legitimate XP serials at my disposal; couldn't even get to the license screen in order to use any.

I tried TinyXP before and found that they removed drivers from the Windows CD.

Those drivers aren't available for download anywhere, as they are assumed to be native to Windows XP.

So if you have a device and they decided to remove the driver for it, you can't use it.

I'm all for a tiny sized XP, but device compatibility should be priority #1. So I like to keep the Windows native drivers and add Bashrat's driverpacks.

I like to make my own tiny sized XP using Nlite. It's easy if you do it following Black Viper's services guide and other guides. It's pretty easy to discover what window's components are superfluous and what is important. And you can tailor that to your specific needs.

These guys are just using Nlite to make these releases. You can do it too :)

Raitsa

As for "Windows 7 lite ZD7x86v12c.iso"

I tested it in Virtuial PC,  it looks good.

It was slightly slower than MAMExp, 17% difference. But that's not a big deal.

It should be a treat for folks that want to use Windows 7 in their cabinets :)

OK have fun!

I'm not a n00b at all when it comes to PC's. Mame on the other hand, I've only recently been exposed to the inner workings of.

I have slipstreamed my own copies of XP before using Nlite so that has never been a major issue for me. Biggest thing holding me back right now are the driver issues you and others have mentioned. I'm not really in the mood to install and test run so many different versions. Don't really have the patience for that.

Currently i have two test mame rigs going. One athlon x2 running xp x64 and one small 1ghz celeron system. The celeron currently runs the MicroXP build available on the net. Great memory footprint for such a small, diminutive system. I did run into the usual driver issues. I also encountered an issue with some Mame front ends. Some, like Mala tend to call up some windows media player dependencies, I'm assuming this is for playing sample game videos.

If you are interested, there is a version of MicroXP "out there" that comes with multiple options including driverpacks. It's the one I've been using for quite awhile. Rock solid. Every-time I put it on something it recognizes all the hardware which is soooo nice.

In fact, I just put it on a 400mhz, 128mb boat anchor (as Craig would say) that got rescued from the garbage several days ago. Boots in about 20 sec and runs Mala and Mame v84 fantastically.

Ya. If you get the time do that. I would like to see how Micro holds up next to your build. (which I have had pretty good luck with also if I may say)

What might that version of Micro be called, there are quite a few.

What might that version of Micro be called ? There are quite a few.

Apparently "micro" is the 3rd option when using the most recent "TinyXP" release.

1. Full Windows XP (nothing is removed)
2. TinyXP (large components removed, but usable for most)
3. MicroXP (extremely small, only takes 221Mb of HDD space)

yeah, found the TPB link some time ago but it seemed as if the torrent wasn't seeding. Maybe ill try again a bit later on. :)

There are 10 seeds at the moment, I'm getting 1 MB per second

Quote from: IG-88
Ya. If you get the time do that. I would like to see how Micro holds up next to your build. (which I have had pretty good luck with also if I may say)

Yeah I'll have to try that some time :)

I did a separate post about this, but wanted to follow up here since folks here have used it.

1. I had no trouble finding "TinyXP Rev10 Multi Boot 6 in 1 DVD" - it is fully downloaded.
2. I had no trouble burning it to a disk.  I also did it at a very low speed and had
3. I set the BIOS to boot from the CD.  No problem there.
4. When I try to boot from the CD, it won't boot from the CD.  I noticed that there is no "bootmgr" file on the CD.  Shouldn't there be?

What am I missing?

Did you burn it as an ISO or just copy the ISO to the disk?,

Yes, in other words - list the files that are on the root of the CD. If it's just one file you've done it wrong-ly :)

Also, I did try going into the ISO folder and running the batch files there (specifically 02a and 04).  In both cases, the batch file runs and then gives me a Windows cannot find cdimage.exe error.

Basically, I am just messing around trying some different things since I cannot seem to get this to work.

Thanks in advance for your help.

2 potential problems, you did burn it to a DVD, not a CD correct? ( 1st post you used cd/dvd interchangeably). Preferably use a DVD-R.
I'm guessing it is an older pc. The DVD laser might not be working correctly. I tossed a box full of old drives that had cd / and or dvd reading problems. Try a known good bootable cd and dvd.


3rd option it's not a old "Dell" is it? Beside not being able to boot from USB half of the time even though it is in the BIOS, they have problems booting "aftermarket :)" windows install disks. You could try USB booting a flash drive or DVD drive maybe with "Plop" boot magager (It's on most versions of "Hirens boot disks"

Here is what I do. CDBurnerXP is the software that I use. Works great every time and is free!    

http://tinyurl.com/8boxen

After installing, click on the icon to open up program and then highlite "Burn ISO Image" and click "OK"


then.....

...browse to your .iso image and  then hit "Burn disc"

Easy - peasy

ps. Burns CD or DVD's. I just use which ever medium I need the most space for,  and/or the machine's particular hardware.

Tommyinajar - nope, not a Dell it is an old emachines - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883114027

IG-88 - thanks for the info, but I did a burn using CDBurnerXP with the same result - won't boot from CD/DVD.

Can someone confirm for me that indeed the iso is not supposed to have any files beyond those I listed below.  I don't see how it could boot just based upon the files that are there.

Does it boot other bootable DVD's?  Can you boot it on other machines?(Don't install it!)  :laugh:

Anyways- Here is mine I just booted it on 2 machines, pressed "enter" to boot, seems to boot fine. I got it at TPB (Tinyxp rev10 boot 6 in 1 dvd) "Tinyxp-rev10.iso" is what it downloads the torrent as.

P.S. Tinyxp 11 is also out there...

And as always make sure you use the key from your original Version :angel:

Tommyinajar - I got mine same place and same torrent.  And our directories and files look the same.

Interestingly I can boot using Hiren's Boot CD (I am running diagnostics and wiping the old HD to make sure that isn't the issue).  I will try using a different brand of DVD (I tried to pick some up yesterday but they were out).

Again, the assistance is appreciated - this was supposed to be a quick reinstall and upgrade on my working cab, and it is really quite frustrating.

I'd still bet the DVD laser is bad in the drive. Try to boot a DVD or try a USB install. 100's of post on it. Here is one from cnet http://download.cnet.com/Windows-7-USB-DVD-Download-Tool/3000-18513_4-10972600.html. You have to change the bios. I do all my installs from USB now, quicker and no more scratched disk.

Also since you have Hirens cd there, try the plop boot from the Hirens cd drive and put the 10-in1- dvd in there. I think that was the only way I got old dells to boot some hacked windows install disk.


 It's been a while but now that I think about it, they might not have wanted to boot DVD's, only cd's. The plop has CD/DVD boot without BIOS support (IDE)

OK.  I can confirm that it can boot other DVDs.  I can also confirm that the TinyXP disk does boot on other computers.  I have now tried 2 different brands of DVDs with no success.

Also, no joy from Plop Boot - I tell it to boot from the drive and it just freezes.

I tried your suggestion of using the Microsoft Download Tool - it says that the iso is not valid (which is weird, since I already burnt it on a DVD and tested it on another computer - it works fine).

Just plane strange.  I appreciate the ideas, but any other suggestions?

Oh - and re: your earlier post.  Yes, my XP license code is printed on the side of my tower.  :)

Oh, and just to add to the puzzle, I just tried booting a burn of Micro-X with the same result.

I might of missed it but did you try a different DVD drive in the computer you are wanting to install the OS on? And you are sure that you have your system set to boot from the CD/DVD right?

IG-88 (love the name, BTW),

I only have the one drive for this computer, so no, I haven't tried it in a different drive.

But I can confirm that the BIOS is set to boot from CD/DVD.

Thanks. Been my fav character since I first saw him in the theaters some 30+ yrs ago  :o 

OK. The reason I ask is in my experience of installing these modified XP's, (and I've done it 100's of times trust me), 75% of it installing correctly depends on the hardware you are using to install it with/onto. I have boxes & boxes full of various DVD drives, CD Drives, ribbon cables, memory modules, audio cards, video cards, power supplies ect ect. and it often requires me to swap out parts SEVERAL times in order to get it to go correctly.

AND, there are irregularities within the various .iso versions that you get off the internets, so that doesn't help either.

Now I'm not saying all installs give me a headache but some do. These eXperience mods are pretty good and when they work they are usually rock solid. But sometimes....  :banghead:

For instance I have one up on the bench right now that got "saved" form the curb down the street that will hopefully make it into a bartop this summer. It may find its way back there tho.  I've tried installing an O/S on it 7-8 times in the last 2 days and it's just not co-operating.

So I guess I'm saying it could be alot of things yet.
