  1. I am pretty sure that it copies all the keyboards to HDD. Seeing as you have tons of keyboards to choose from once you are done installing and running Windows. As for removing the keyboards and languages, i did it and the CD went from 700mb (drivers, ryanvm updatepack, ryanvm addon pack, ryanvm directx, and .net 1.1 and 2.0) down to 400mb with (drivers, ryanvm updatepack, ryanvm addon pack, ryanvm directx, and .net 1.1 and 2.0)

    Indexing Service

    Windows Search is the indexing service. You will always get errors when unchecking the indexing service, since some system files are locked, so errors are expected. You may also have to go in and remove the scheduled task that indexes your drives, but normally that goes away when you uncheck index my drives. As for anoymous_person, Just removing Windows Search does not remove indexing. Windows Vista in Indexed by default, so you must uncheck the box to remove the old indexes.

    Well if you still can not get it to work, this weekend when i get off school i will put together a guide using pictures and text in a step by step basis. It will also include how to add service pack 2, drivers, etc. and ryanvm packs so you do not have to download 200+ hotfixes as soon as you start up.
  4. Nuhi may just need your lastsession file. Not 100% though.
  5. Based on your video, Security Center does not do the popups when installing things. That is UAC(User Account Control) found under msconfig/tools. Thought i would let you know.

    Deleted paint :(

    If you had system restore enabled you could simply go back to a later date. If not you could try recovery console. I tried looking around in my vista for windows components but did not find paint listed. Sorry
  7. I have played around with the services as well, but i would rather not mess with the function of windows just to save 150mb of RAM. 768mb is getting useless now, even with XP
  8. This post is a year old....are you using the new nlite and ryanvm pack?
  9. Did you select advanced mode under the registry tweaks in nlite? You can then make it start windows showing the my computer icon. This would be for future installations though. Have you tried downloading tweakui and trying that?
  10. Found this article about configuring RAID with Virtual PC. Not sure if it does anything, but it might allow you to test to see if the drivers work. http://blogs.msdn.com/virtual_pc_guy/archi.../21/431410.aspx
  11. I have a solution to convert your CD to Professional, but i am not sure if i am allowed to post it here.

    You could even add updates into the disc, but lets get the drivers working first.
  13. Stupid question, but did you update any of the drivers after you installed the new windows? What all did you integrate into your nlite? Are you using Microsoft Update?
  14. I got a Windows XP SP2 CD down to 400mb. I stripped it of all the languages and keyboards but English/united states. I also went in and disabled hibernate, and system restore. I also set some services to disabled such as search, index, firewall, etc, and SFC to speed up installation. I also added a default workgroup and company, along with a key. The CD is 400mb with RyanVM update pack 2.1.8, addons, directx, and framework 1.1, and 2.0. I also added a 40mb folder called goodies which include a theme and some other stuff. Haven't tried it yet, but it should work.

    Seems to be a lot more work for her. She already downloaded the required drivers off their site and followed everyone else's advice and nlite does a fine job integrating the drivers. Plus wouldn't the driver pack contain massive amounts of drivers that might not be necessary and just add space?
  16. Anyway to make this a installation only action? Or can someone post a way to reenable Windows Protection after you start Windows?
  17. Try this taken from the above "another forum" First, rename the network drive. Then navigate to... My Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MountPoints2 Your network drive will have its own key something like "##server-name#share-name", right-click the key and get its permissions. Basically, you want to have it read-only. So, click the "Advanced" button at the bottom of the dialog, and uncheck the "inherit from parent the permissions.." checkbox. In the dialog that follows, choose "Copy", and <ok> that. Back in main permissions dialog, security (the only) tab, unckeck "full control" for all users (there may be a "RESERVED" user, which has read-only access anyway, leave it as it is.) and <ok> back to the registry editor. Your mapped drives will now keep their cute names for ever, or at least until you reinstall Windows. EDIT: beaker takes all credit, thought i would just add it here to make it easier to find
  18. Cleaner in the sense that Ryan put everything together in a nice neat installer and there is last chance of this conflicting. When the installation hangs at 13mins, have you tired exiting the command window, or restarting to computer and see if it continues on faster? If it works, make sure nothing was affect though.

    Well i recently reinstalled Vista again for a weird problem. I just downloaded nlite again and ran it and so far i have not gotten an error integrating anything. I think everything relating to errors was my VIA chipset and ethernet drivers. They made it so copying would not work, would always crash and hang, which might be chipset or ethernet related since it affected networks too. Not going to reinstall them though. here is the thread i started on the via forums. http://forums.viaarena.com/messageview.asp...p;enterthread=y

    Did you get the drivers to integrate properly?

    My current OS installed on my computer is Vista. I am trying to make a new XP CD with all the new ryanvm updates. When i run nlite and start to register components after i add drivers, etc nlite crashes. I have disabled UAC, ran it with admin rights, XP SP2 mode, yet it always crashes. I need help, since my other computer cant use Vista because of the requirements so i need to make a new nlited XP cd.

    Bump! Anyone? I really need to make a XP CD, but everytime i start to integrate anything nlite crashes. Even tried in admin mode and in compatibility mode, neither work.

    Everytime i use nlite, when i begin to integrate anything i get a crash. I am using Vista Ultimate with all updates. This code was taken from the event logger. Faulting application nLite.exe, version, time stamp 0x45f58f63, faulting module ntdll.dll, version 6.0.6000.16386, time stamp 0x4549bdc9, exception code 0xc0000374, fault offset 0x000af1c9, process id 0x7ac, application start time 0x01c777eb6a5dd98c.
  24. I have no user account on my welcome screen, and that is because i only have 1 account and no password setup. So i think windows just bypasses it, even though there is no setting to change it. The user does show up though when i set a password.
