Ramdisk help
« on: May 04, 2004, 09:48:36 pm »
Hey guys :D
I'm running XP and I'm trying to do the tweak explained here:

http://www.broadbandnuts.com/index.php?page=ramdisk

and here

http://forums.speedguide.net/showthread.php?t=31504&highlight=Ramdisk

I'm still having no luck

I changed the TCP.BAT to:
@echo on

copy c:\windows\System32\DRIVERS\tcpip.sys Z:\
copy c:\windows\System32\DRIVERS\afd.sys Z:\

net start afd
net start tcpip


ipconfig

Still no go. In fact NOD32 says "Kernel failed to load" when I run this. That's because I'm doing something wrong and I have no network connection.
If anyone could help me out here I would appreciate it allot. ;D 8)

PS I forgot,
I'm using Arsoft Ramdisk

Load order is critical.
This is the login.cmd file that I use (with a static IP)
Works for me and adds no noticable boot time.
Hope it helps.

****************************************

@echo on

Echo Starting TCP/IP Services

copy c:\windows\System32\DRIVERS\afd.sys z:\
copy c:\windows\System32\DRIVERS\netbt.sys z:\
copy c:\windows\System32\DRIVERS\tcpip.sys z:\
copy c:\windows\System32\DRIVERS\ipnat.sys z:\

net start afd
net start netbt
net start tcpip
net start ipnat

That did it. 8)

I changed the image paths in the registry for "netbt and ipnat" as indicated in your script in addition to "afd and tcpip".

Thanks allot for your time Micro, I appreciate it. ;D
I was a bit stumped on this one to say the least. ;)
