  1. Hi there, took me quite some time to recover my forum password... First of all, nice idea! The implementation in C++ is actually quite simple, but I didn't have the time to test it during an unattended installation. (just came home from work) Usage is like this: SetupCopyOEMInf.exe <dir with drivers in subdirectories> It scans a dir recursively and calls SetupCopyOEMInf for every .inf it finds. Windows may have problems when the referenced driver files are not in the same directory as the .inf, couldn't check that either. Feel free to try it yourself -- Pyron SetupCopyOEMInf.zip
  2. 7zip has nothing to do with, sorry. The closest thing in 7zip would be the dictionary size, which influences decompression speed. (but only indirectly, lower compression ratio -> better decompression speed) -- Pyron
  3. I would recommend Memtest86+ for testing RAM. -- Pyron
  4. I just found this document :http://home.hiwaay.net/~pittman/archive/makecab.doc, which explains makecab/ddf files in detail. This is what it says about FolderSizeThreshold: -- Pyron
  5. Try TweakUI, there you can see what entries are in the New-Menu and deactivate/delete them. (I don't need anything other than folder and textfile, so I delete everything else regularily) -- Pyron
  6. WDs are a bit picky about their jumpers, so when you say you set it to "master", I assume you mean you set it to "master/single". Has your mainboard an additional IDE controller onboard and did you connect the HD to that one? In this case you would need the drivers disk and use it by pressing F6 during textmode-setup. -- Pyron
  7. If this one would work as expected, there wouldn't be much difference. I prefer using my presetup.cmd, however, because I am much more flexible in what I do before setup starts and even afterwards before reboot. (Like uncompressing drivers before, setting registry keys, cleaning up, etc.) So it depends of what you need to to. Choice, the problem is choice. -- Neo, Matrix Reloaded -- Pyron
  8. As I said before, adapting my original guide for compressed drivers is just one additional line in presetup.cmd (uncompressing the drivers to harddisk), so using Drvz.exe there additionally would hardly be worth the effort. -- Pyron
  9. @Nologic: SetDevicePath.exe works much simpler, it just scans for directories. It is up to Windows to find drivers there later. -- Pyron
  10. And look here. Your key(s) could be blacklisted. -- Pyron
  11. Yes, I see clearer now. I assume the client is connected to the internet through your server. And you mentioned Microsoft's ISA server before. Therefore you have to configure its FTP-Proxy and your ftp-client accordingly. (I assume you use a seperate FTP-program, I would recommend it anyway). After a quick glance at google, you could also use ISA's SOCKS proxy, should save you some hassle if it works at all. If in doubt, search the manual for FTP or SOCKS. -- Pyron
  12. First try: use passive FTP. If that does not work: What errors do you get? If you cannot upload, it has probably something to do with user rights on the ftp server, but I am not really sure what you mean when you are talking about "client" and "server". You say you are using the "server" to upload files? Can you make that a bit clearer? -- Pyron
  13. In case you didn't reinstall windows yet, you could try Microsoft's Windows Installer Cleanup Utility to erase the previous HighMAT installation package. -- Pyron
  14. I just bought an AthlonXP 64 3000+ on an ASUS K8V SE Deluxe with an Arctic Cooling Silencer 64 Cooler. So far it's rock solid, didn't have any problems with it, except under linux (X freezes, but that has no high priority for me at the moment). And it does not get very hot, actually it runs cooler than the 1800+ I had before, on the past few summer days it got up to 52 degrees Celsius, so that's very ok for me. If you are a lot into numbercrunching (like seti@home) a P4 would likely perform better, due to hyperthreading. -- Pyron
  15. The two routers should have IPs from the same subnet, so would be okay. One more thing on the DHCP-server. The simple reason to disable the one in the WLANRouter is that the WLAN-Cards would receive their info from there first, ie gateway and dns information which points to the WLAN-router, not to the one connected to the internet. Which type of cable to use depends on the ports on the routers. If you have a port labeld "uplink" you take a straight cable from the uplink port of one router to a normal port of the other. If you have no uplink port, you connect them via a crosslink cable on the normal ports. The SSID is basically the name of the Wireless router, which can be broadcasted or not. You should disable the broadcast if possible, this adds a little bit to security. -- Pyron
  16. Are you sure? I seriously think you don't need those, at least not in a home network. -- Pyron
  17. I assume you have connected the 2 routers per cable uplink, so the first thing to do is to disable the DHCP-Server in your Wireless router. This way your WLAN Cards should receive their adresses from the internet router and you have only "one" network afterwards and you should have no problems going online. -- Pyron
  18. For anyone who recommends Flashget: NetTransport is a 1:1 clone of Flashget, but completely free. -- Pyron
  19. What's so difficult about reactivating it? -- Pyron
  20. You can use presetup.cmd to decompress drivers to a place referenced by OemPNPDriverPath, but I prefer to start SetDevicePath.exe directly after decompression, which spares me the trouble of keeping OemPNPDriversPath up-to-date. -- Pyron
  21. Okay, so now it's my turn to present a possible solution... Let's go back to the roots: Create a directory with your drivers, put SetDevicePath.exe in it. Compress the contents of this directory with WinRAR, make it self-executable. Put the following in the comment: path=c:\drivers setup=SetDevicePath.exe c:\drivers silent=2 overwrite=1 Put the resulting sfx-archive on your CD and start it with DetachedProgram in winnt.sif as usual. Here is the catch: I did not test it, as I don't use winnt.sif. So it would be great if someone could test this method. (I would have used 7-zip if wasn't so restrictive about sfx-archives) -- Pyron
  22. Loopback? You mean like or localhost? EDIT: Ah, I know what you mean. Look here (Microsoft Knowledge base) (BTW: first entry on google). -- Pyron
  23. Try this: REGEDIT4 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Driver Signing] "Policy"=dword:00000000 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Driver Signing] "Policy"=hex:00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\Driver Signing] "BehaviorOnFailedVerify"=dword:00000000 -- Pyron
  24. Go here: AC3 Filter homepage Do a fresh install, then deinstall. I would recommend leaving it installed however, I need it from time to time. -- Pyron
  25. Yep, couldn't have said it better myself. But serialzs method is for people using winnt.sif, which I don't, so it has it's place. It is just adding to the options you have nowadays when creating an unattended install (thanks to msfn! ). -- Pyron
