  1. thanks a lot, geek. I'll try your suggestion of disable NetBIOS over TCP/IP.
  2. We have 30 computers with the hardware all the same. we can boot all the comupters with a same Windows XP Image(by using DisklessAngel) over pxe. but the computer name will conflicts. I wondered Is there a way to rename the computer at windows xp startup and take effect without rebooting?
  3. SP2 install needed hacked files list

    To nolookingca: I cannot visit "http://nolookingca.netfirms.com/nlcahfpdl.htm" , of course, I cannot download the pack also. How can I do? thanks -Climbing
  4. Fresh install with Sata

    Try to run this batch on your xp system: REG.exe DELETE "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E966-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0000" /f REG.exe DELETE "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E966-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0001" /f REG.exe DELETE "HKLM\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{4D36E966-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0000" /f REG.exe DELETE "HKLM\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{4D36E966-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0001" /f REG.exe DELETE "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\Root\ACPI_HAL" /f REG.exe DELETE "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\Root\PCI_HAL" /f rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection ACPIAPIC_UP_HAL 131 %windir%\inf\hal.inf
  5. winamp 5.0.3

    :/, well, What's wrong with the nullsoft installer?
  6. XP TCP/IP Alternative Network Config

    Using netsh is a good way. and use this batch "getip.cmd": ipconfig /release ipconfig /renew may also work well to get a new ip for dhcp. If you want your laptop moving between diffirent LANs, you can try the software named "NetSwitcher". you can download its shareware version @ http://www.netswitcher.com/. Good luck!

  9. [help]Move %USERPROFILE% to other Drive

    Question 1: Where can I find this hivesft.inf? Question 2: I think this way may similar the way above to change the registry "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders" subkeys' values. I don't think this is complex as you said.
  10. execute ghost in before xp start

    as I know, PowerQuest Partition Magic modify the MBR before reboot. At reboot, new MBR boot the system from a Floppy Image by vfloppy.sys(or something else), then run its operation by a batch file. after operation done, it will restore the MBR to original. Hope this can help.
