  1. Add your sata controllers driver to your installation disk either manually or with nlite.
  2. Had to get it working so just bought a new card (Silicon Image 3512)
  3. Hello, I can't get windows server 2003 to install on a silicon image 3114 (startech version). When I include the BTS driverpacks it sees the hard drive in the installer, but the second part of the setup fails (after reboot). If I add the newest driver via nlite, it sees the drive, installs but when I boot it gets the same BSOD (0x0000007B). Using the driver off the disc I got (from 2003) doesn't even see the disk in the install. I would use a floppy drive but I don't have one. Any ideas?
  4. You only need to be twelve to get a bank account in the U.K. from Halifax and probably a few other banks.
  5. I added it after install, got it down to 75mb total now. Nothing left to do with it so I'm gonna not bother with it any more You have got a point though about going for efficiency, when I do my normal images that is what I go for.
  6. I had a idea just a moment ago, why not have an option to remove all the unneeded directories that end up in the windows directory e.g. all the language directories in system32 except 1033 if your using English as the others aren't needed. Same with the ime,mui,srchasst,help etc. If it is possible of course, I've only ever removed the directories I don't need post-install rather than editing the install image.
  7. Linux was wrote from scratch by Linus Torvalds, it did follow the same POSIX standards as UNIX to make it compatible with UNIX and a similar file structure but the code was completely different.
  8. Removed basically everything in nlite, then removed a few other DirectX dlls left behind and replaced winlogon for minlogon. I'll post the config when I get access to the computer I did it on. Yea, it isn't anything new but just got back from hospital so have to stay in a for a few days and got bored Also, I forgot to say about disabling the page file and hibernation as that removes around 1GB from the drive. I was thinking about leaving in essent and the database support as they are only 500kbish each. Merry christmas to everyone
  9. Hello, so far I've managed to get my XP install image to 89MB and the actual install down to 265MB with only two services running (Plug and play and RPC). It currently takes 4 seconds to boot but I have not optimised it properly yet, except from minlogin (which does help and means oembios.bin could be deleted) Screenshot attached below: Edit: Forgot to say the PF usage just after boot is a lot lower (24MB) and as you can see it is in VMware.
  10. Just use the alternative framework, what I use and it works great.
  11. If you need to disable register globals just for your own domain then just add the following lines to .htaccess: php value register_globals Off If your hosting service is using a CGI based PHP you may be able to add "register globals Off" to a new file called php.ini
  12. Well, even your ISP blocks some sites and fair play with him serving advertisements on un-routable addresses, everyone needs to make money to run their service.
  13. To port forward don't worry about your external IP being static, it just your internal IP staying the same that matters. As then the rules would not be correct.
  14. Tor is a good option. However personally I would not do anything through http proxies due to the problem of the owner being able to see everything you do. That is why I use Tor, everything is encrypted between each node.
  15. Download gparted livecd (http://gparted.sf.net). All you need to do then is backup your data in case anything goes wrong. Then boot the cd and resize your main partition, just making it a couple of GB smaller will work.
  16. Oh shame, maybe the ghost decided to hide the evidence. Good thinking on his part Post back here if you find out anything more.
  17. Sounds interesting I've had cameras write the wrong date, but the same date as the death of someone who used to live there is a bit coincidental. Any link to the pictures? Good Halloween story though
  18. http://www.nvidia.com/object/winvista_x86_96.85.html You must not of looked properly These drivers are for build >5744 though, should work with lower though.
  19. What I found easiest was to extract the .exe files by running the installer, or extracting it with 7zip should work if you want to try that. Then just integrate the driver .inf files in nLite. Make sure you add the sata_raid drivers if your using raid though.
  20. Found out how to do the registry tweaks, regedit /s works fine. Got DriverPacks working as well, mostly. Only thing is the installer crashes half way through with a bsod, but re-running it works fine.
  21. Any way to fix this problem? When you log off or shutdown the box is not themed like every other box... I'm using the Royale theme maybe that is the issue.
  22. Hello... I have searched the forum and Google about my questions but could not find anything decent, sorry if I did not look good enough What is the best way to enable audio and hardware acceleration, with registry tweaks right? I have a .reg file with some of my tweaks inside it... but I can't get it to work with the run once thing... I'm using regedit /s \tweaks\tweaks.reg" Possible to have the Windows XP style welcome screen in 2003? I did enable the option, but I guess it is not included in 2003. Best way to integrate my drivers... I read about making my own driver pack, any better way? Thanks in advance
  23. Nice billboard, using it at the moment. I prefer the one without the logo though.
