  1. Example of XML answer file, please read the following notes: -I used this xml in autounattend.xml (attached to image) and WdsClientUnattend.xml (hooked to client, x86 boot) -after PXE boot and choosing WDS Vista harddisk will be wiped (1 partition will be created) and installation begins automaticly -workstation will be joined to the domain with correct workstation name (assuming workstation is prestaged for RIS) -www.google.nl will be set as homepage -local administrator account will be enabled and a local password will be set -UAC will be turned off -a custom script (custom.bat) will copy extra gadgets to the local harddrive: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend"> <servicing></servicing> <settings

  2. Mount your Boot.WIM with imagex / mountrw, load the System hive ("MountPoint"\Windows\System32\Config\SYSTEM) into regedit In the Key Name box, type OriginalInstall, and then click OK. and add the following key as REG_DWORD "HKLM\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\FBWF\WinPECacheThreshold" set the value to 0x40 (64MB) or 0x80 (128MB) Commit changes with ImageX / commit. Burn the new Boot.WIM on your WinPE DVD or replace boot.wim in Windows Deployment Services
  3. It worked with my Si3112 SATA controller, i added the si3112 drivers to the x:\drivers folder (added the driversroot.txt to X:\) and it worked (Windows PE)
  4. In the unattended.xml, section RunSynchronousCommand, Pass1 WindowsPE, I tried using the command "net use w: \\server\share" to map a drive. I also entered the proper credentials. However the drive isnt mapped under PE. What am i doing wrong ? <RunSynchronous> <RunSynchronousCommand wcm:action="add"> <Order>1</Order> <Credentials> <Domain>mydomain</Domain> <Password>mypassword</Password> <Username>administrator</Username> </Credentials> <Path>net use w: \\myserver\myshare</Path> </RunSynchronousCommand> </RunSynchronous>
  5. add %MACHINENAME% to the COMPUTERNAME SECTION (Shell-setup), add it in specialize pass and it will work. UnsecureJoin is FALSE in my unattended, and auto domain joining goes fine, and i get the correct pre-staged computername in the correct OU
  6. Solved by adding %Machinename% in Computername (Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup / specialize pass)
  7. I figured out (thanks mostly to Firegeier) to install Vista unattended in a network enviroment. I have some questions about the finetuning: -How can I disable the Windows Experience Index test during setup ? -How can I turn off Windows Search during setup ? -Although i prestaged the computername in Active Directory, Vista creates a random computername -WDS options -> "Create the client in the following location" doesnt seem to work, the computer account is created in the standard Computers OU
  8. I tried the diskconfig part of graymadder, but still nothing happens....i will combine the full unattended file of nebruin and use the disk-settings from graymadder..and figure out what the problem is. cheers. ghk.
  9. What am I doing wrong ?? Bootup with F12 - WINPE starts - PE asks for username and password - Choose IMAGE (Vista Enterprise) So far so good......then it asks for "On which partition to install ??" I dont want that.....i want PE to wipe it, format it and install vista without intervention....just like RIS does....i tried everything......can someone take a look at my answer file ? (this is attached to the Vista EE image and to the X86 WDS client). Note: domain join and timezone settings work, also the "enable local admin command".. ....but for example also the sidebar option (i just want the clock) doesnt work (after install it shows 3 gadgets) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend"> <settings pass="windowsPE"> <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Setup" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <UserData> <ProductKey> <WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI> <Key>XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX</Key> </ProductKey> <AcceptEula>true</AcceptEula> <FullName>HOMEUSER</FullName> <Organization>HOMEORG</Organization> </UserData> <DiskConfiguration> <Disk wcm:action="add"> <CreatePartitions> <CreatePartition wcm:action="add"> <Order>1</Order> <Type>Primary</Type> <Size>20000</Size> </CreatePartition> </CreatePartitions> <ModifyPartitions> <ModifyPartition wcm:action="modify"> <Active>true</Active> <Extend>false</Extend> <Format>NTFS</Format> <Label>VISTA</Label> <Letter>C</Letter> <Order>1</Order> <PartitionID>1</PartitionID> </ModifyPartition> </ModifyPartitions> <DiskID>0</DiskID> <WillWipeDisk>true</WillWipeDisk> </Disk> <WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI> </DiskConfiguration> <ImageInstall> <OSImage> <InstallTo> <DiskID>0</DiskID> <PartitionID>1</PartitionID> </InstallTo> <InstallToAvailablePartition>true</InstallToAvailablePartition> <WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI> </OSImage> </ImageInstall> </component> </settings> <settings pass="oobeSystem"> <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <OOBE> <HideEULAPage>true</HideEULAPage> <ProtectYourPC>3</ProtectYourPC> <SkipMachineOOBE>true</SkipMachineOOBE> <SkipUserOOBE>true</SkipUserOOBE> </OOBE> <TimeZone>W.

  12. I have successfully installed Windows Vista on a machine with Windows Deployment Services with an xml answerfile....i dont understand the additional drivers, how to add them /specify them. I added a driverpath in the answerfile like this example: <PathAndCredentials wcm:keyValue="1"> <Path>\\myshare\driverpath</Path> <Credentials> <Domain>UserDomain</Domain> <Username>UserName</Username> <Password>UserPassword</Password> </Credentials> </PathAndCredentials> I filled in the credentials, and tested if the share works....still during installation i get an error that it cannot connect to the share and locate the drivers... shouldnt it be \\SERVER\SHARE\driverpath instead of \\MYSHARE\driverpath ??? because it needs to know the server right or does it default use the WDS/RIS server ? Im confused...
  13. fizban2 ... the question that keeps me going is if its possible to just use the factory .WIM file that ships with the Vista build (install.wim located in the sources) or do i always need to install Vista with setup and make an image afterwards ? I installed Vista with the DVD and i noticed that for example bootmgr was now created in the root of c:\ ... when only restoring the install.wim from the DVD that file isnt created for example. I know that it's maybe simple minded to think that a factory .wim file would start my system, because of lack of drivers etc. The Vista setup process isnt just restoring the .wim file i guess because setup does a lot more .. maybe you can explain me a bit more about the difference between the factory .wim file and self created .wim (captured) files.
  14. Same problem here, I booted from Win PE, connect to my network share holding the install.wim file (build 5456 internal), then i used the command: imagex /apply install.wim 4 c: (4 = ultimate version) image succesfully copied to c: after reboot: ntldr is missing what am i doing wrong ???
