  1. This thread clarified for me that I would need to use runonce instead of slipstreaming. However, instead of using 8 packages from the "Catalog" site, I used a 231MB package from the "Download Center" called .NET Framework 3.5 full package. It installs three frameworks with their service packs included (2.0 SP2, 3.0 SP2, 3.5 SP1). I'm pretty new at this stuff, I hope this helps and doesn't confuse things.
  2. I want the Start Menu MFU programs list to be initially empty. Normally it is pre-populated with MSN, WMP, Messenger, Tour, and Transfer Wizard. There are some old threads here that talk about using creative run-once .reg files. All of the methods I read were only for the current user, where I want it to be that way for all users. The keys they're using do not exist under HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT. I'm using nLite, and didn't find it in there either. Apparently the MS OEM builder has the ability to add to the MFU for all users, but nothing about removing the default ones. I even used regmon and ran Taskbar and Start Menu Properties>Start Menu>Customize>Clear List, but as expected, it used keys for the current user only. I think this question has been asked a lot, if someone actually develops a method for this, it would be helpful to many.
  3. I think he's overworked and underpayed. Writing a little batch file is a lot easier than rolling my own installation package. As such, thanks Acheron for your contribution!
  4. Here is my fix for various problems I had with using the installer unattended: nero- /silent /components="*nero_core,nero_core\nero_audioplugins\mausau,*nero_coverdes,*nero_toolkit,!nero_toolkit\nero_burnrights" nero- /silent /serial="XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX" /components="" del "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Nero\Nero Burning ROM.lnk" My observations are as follows: If the serial number is provided by switch, it will not work in conjunction with the silent switch. It will work if installed a second time. My own serial number is 40 characters, not 28 like everyone else is posting. Also, it's apparently not authorized for Burnrights or Wave Editor. When using the components switch, "*nero_core" doesn't enable "nero_core\nero_audioplugins\mausau", but it can be enabled separately. A near-duplicate shortcut is created, which can be deleted. (What does the /w switch do for nero.exe anyway?) I've read posts about all these problems in this thread, most without solutions. I hope this is useful to someone.
  5. I found a list, but it's not as large as the list I have in my XP installation. It is accurate however, and includes the countries I've seen asked for on this forum. http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms912039.aspx
  6. If I can't find a list or extract one, I would be more than willing to create a list manually. What format would like the list?
  7. I'm pretty sure changing "Language" and "Localization" (under custom) in the Regional tab of nLite will change the Standards and Formats to whatever applies for that language/country. However, I don't believe there's an option in nLite for setting a time format other than the one for your language/country.
  8. Since none of the regional options in nLite change the "Location", I've found where the registry key exists for it: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International\Geo] "Nation"="39" But there is also keys for every user (S-1-5-18, S-1-5-19, etc) and a default one here: [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\International\Geo] "Nation"="39" I've had no problem using nLite, but I have no idea how to safely make my own changes as part of a installation disc. What would be the easiest way to implement this for all users?
  9. I've been fiddling a bit with this, definitely cool, but I have question. Does it only work on devices with no drivers installed, or is there a way to have it work on devices with drivers older than the packs?
  10. Birds: In the "Regional and Language Options" control panel the first tab (Regional Options) has a "Standards and Formats" group which corresponds to the "Language" group in nLite. In the the third tab (Advanced) is a "Language for non-Unicode programs" group which corresponds to the "Custom" and "Localization" selection in nLite. I might have these reversed, but since you would usually set them the same, it doesn't really matter. nuhi: What does seem to be missing from nLite is the "Location" selection (lists countries only, not languages), which is selectable during a normal install, or afterwards in the control panel. nLite always just uses the default selection (which for my CD is "United States").
  11. I also had the problem with screen resolution not applying. As with a standard install, it asked me to confirm within x seconds that the display resolution was working, after which I got the default resolution, not the one I had set. I changed it manually once in windows and the resolution I had set in nLite would of worked.
