  1. Previous dc7600 series use Broadcom NetExtreme Gigabit Ethernet Adapter dc7700 series use Intel LoM (Lan on Motherboard). Broadcom NICs are an option in PCIe slot. download and use the correct driver SP33669.exe from hp download driver support. Report your success or failure. [EDIT] wrong link [/EDIT]

  6. Noticed in your KIX script path to %SystemRoot% is hardcoded to C:\WINNT. I'm unable to make it works from a running Windows XP installation with Target OS Windows 2003 Server.: SET
  7. I remember a few months ago, i was looking for a tool i can run from command line to get infos about SMBIOS. Multi Manufacturer Pre-Activation I was disappointed to find this dmidecode website but no compiled version of the tool. @#rootworm So i want to thanks you for compiling it and share it with MSFN community.

  9. Performing a customized unattended installation of Virtual Server The Virtual Server Administrator's guide outlines how to perform a basic unattended installation of Virtual Server. However it does not tell you how to do a customized unattended install (where you only install some of the components). You can do this with the following command (all one line): msiexec /I "Virtual Server 2005.msi" /L*v %TEMP\VS2005Install.log ADDLOCAL=VirtualServer,VMRCClient,DevAndDoc,VSWebApp PIDKEY=#YOUR_PID_WITHOUT_DASHES# /qb- Where you remove the components from 'ADDLOCAL' that you do not want installed. So if you just wanted the VMRC client you would run: msiexec /I "Virtual Server 2005.msi" /L*v %TEMP\VS2005Install.log ADDLOCAL=VMRCClient PIDKEY=#YOUR_PID_WITHOUT_DASHES# /qb- Note: To get the .msi file with Virtual Server 2005 R2 you will need to run Setup.exe /c /t [drive letter]:\[path to the .msi file].

  13. For the purpose of putting Internet temporary files on a RAM disk, you can use: Free RAMDisk for Windows 2000 / Windows XP / Windows Server 2003 version 5.0.2.2 The size is limited to 64 Mb, large enough to browse the web. For downloading huge files, a download manager is mandatory. Otherwise the size of downloadable file is limited by the free space available in the RAM disk if IE is used.

  15. Downloaded: xx xxx xxx bytes in 36 files some updates reported by Web Windows Update are not included in mssecure.xml. The script works as expected. Great work tzeentch
  16. I will submit you a request maybe tomorrow... Need some time to explain the goal, not a very complex app but should translate my need in comprehensible words. Thanks for your proposal.
  17. Don't know what tool is used to create/write/modify the ul file. To create localized version of .ul file, you can download the ENU one, change the extension to .xml and open it with MindFusion's XML Viewer, Freeware XML Editor for editing. you will have to change: jcarle instructions on post #3 First, the general information about the UL file must placed in the top-level <updatelist> tag. Before adding the updates, the categories that will be used in the UL file must be declared. The update items contain all the information on each individual update available. title description filename url i have already 90% of update items infos (title, URL) for Server 2003 ENU (parsed from log files). See thread in HFSLIP pinned topics. maxximum FRA is available as starting point. Not enough time to edit
  18. Install and Configure the Email Server in Windows Server 2003 + Outlook Express
  19. http://www.r2.com.au/ And the same for Outlook 2000
  20. Try the free ViewOnly viewer here: http://www.priasoft.com/msgview.exe
  21. Change both. if you don't use FDV's fileset, you can run a script :// http://www.niiconsulting.com/checkmate/2006/07/userassist-revisited/ reg add "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\UserAssist\Settings" /v NoEncrypt /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f reg add "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\UserAssist\Settings" /v NoLog /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
  22. The only script i have ever dreamed about. Parse MSFT own list without effort. but... and it starts downloading each update for all OS flavors... maybe some inconstitency in current mssecure.xml?
  23. Keep up the good work. I will try it later to see if it can solve an issue i have with MultiPortSerial PCI board. Board itself is installed without problems but i have to accept the installation of each of the 4 COM ports. Drivers for both PCI board and COM ports are digitally signed.
