  1. Latest nlited dvd will not boot up

    My newest nlited dvd will not boot. You should know that I make a new dvd about every two months without issue. I tried my backup dvd from last month, and it would boot up if I so desired. Since I was having an issue, I started from scratch and still no go. I use a dvd-rw by the way. I also tried burning to a regular verbatim dvd, burning at 4x, using Imgburn as usual. Attached is the latest last session.ini. I usually delete the following before I start the process: DOCS, VALUEADD, DOTNETFX and SUPPORT Folders, and from the I386 directory I also delete the following: WIN9XMIG, WIN9XUPG and WINNTUPG and Lang. Outside of using the latest hot fixes, the rest of the format has not changed in quite a long time. Thanks in advance, Eddie LAST SESSION.INI

  3. Latest nlited dvd will not boot up

  4. New DVD disc skips setup

    Made a new nlited DVD disc today, rebooted, but it skipped the step - press any key - and went straight into regular windows. Put it my "old" backup dvd disc and the - press any key - showed up. Burned a new dvd disc ( I always use DVD-RW's), rebooted and it also skipped the - press any key. Started nlited from scratch again, original windows xp and then integrate everything, same result, no - press any key. FYI: I usually create a new disc every few months just to keep things nice and clean. Thanks in advance for any assistance. Eddie LAST SESSION.INI
  5. New DVD disc skips setup

    Through trail and error I have determined that the latest "update pack" is the source of my problem. Using XPSP3_QFE_UpdatePack_1.4.8_20110208.7z for Windows XP Post-SP3 user_hidden on 02-08- 2011 http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7184 I will register and post a comment on the Ryan site. As an FYI, I got a fresh copy of SP3, nlite program and the "update" pack. When I left out the "pack", and included everything else, the process worked as it should. "Including" the 'update' pack caused the previously described failure. Just wondering, can the "update pack" still be used after a fresh installation, if one were necessary? Thanks, Eddie
  6. New DVD disc skips setup

    Still need help. Tried a fresh copy of my windows xp pro operating system from my original disc. Still didn’t work. Am using ImgBurn v2.5.5.0 to burn ISO created by nlite. Tried using Deep Burner v1.9.0.228 to burn ISO, still didn’t work. Instead of using DVD-RW’s to burn ISO, tried using DVD+R, still didn’t work. My backup DVD still works with the message - press any key. Thanks again for any suggestions, Eddie
  7. New DVD disc skips setup

    @myselfidem Hmmm, well the BOOTFIX.BIN "is" in the DVD disc that I created that didn't work. I suppose its possible that its corrupted as you stated. When I first started this whole 'nlite' thing I first made a copy of my original disc so that I wouldn't mess up the original. So I'll try and use a 'fresh' copy. @Ponch Don't understand what you mean by: Does the (destination) optical drive see the files on the media ? -- When I put the DVD disc in, I can "see" all the files. If your referring to the "ISO" created by nlite, I already deleted it so I can't go back and check it. Thanks again for your assistance, Eddie
  8. New DVD disc skips setup

    I always copy my files "manually"
  9. New nlite CD Installation ?

    I just created a new “CD-RW†nlite installation CD. But I forgot to put a check mark on the ‘Windows Activation’ box in that first ‘components’ screen. I assume, as usual, that I will still need to activate ’windows’. Does anyone know if the following article works (I edited it to 'try' make it smaller): Users who reformat their hard drive and perform a clean installation of the operating system will find that they need to reactivate the product. But, as long as the new installation is on the same system and there won't be any hardware changes it is possible to transfer the existing product activation and skip having to go through the product activation process again. Follow the steps below to save the activation status information and restore it once your system is rebuilt: Go to C:\Windows\System32 folder - Find the files "wpa.dbl" and "wpa.bak" and copy them to a safe location. After you have reinstalled Windows XP on your reformatted hard drive, click "No" when asked if you want to go ahead and go through the activation process. Reboot your computer into SafeMode Go to the C:\Windows\System32 folder -- Find the file "wpa.dbl" and "wpa.bak" (if it exists) and rename them to "wpadbl.new" and "wpabak.new" Copy your original "wpa.dbl" and "wpa.bak" files into the C:\Windows\System32 folder Restart your system Your Windows XP operating system is now reinstalled on your reformatted hard drive and you are all activated without having to actually go through the product activation process! Remember though. This won't work for transferring activation information from one computer to another or if you alter the hardware because the information contained in your "wpa.dbl" file will not match the configuration of the computer. This trick is only for reinstalling Windows XP on the exact same computer after formatting the hard drive. Original article: http://netsecurity.about.com/od/windowsxp/...qtwinxp0829.htm I don’t really want to make a new ‘CD’, but if I have to so be it. Thanks in advance for any guidance, Eddie Just an FYI: I either did it wrong or it didn't work. Had to call 1-888 MS
  10. Proper driver selection

    I know everyone here is operating way above my head, but I used the free program Driver Magician Lite: http://www.drivermagician.com/Lite.htm It found all the drivers on my computer, non microsoft, put them in a folder, and that's what I have always used to integrate with nlite. Hope this helps, Eddie
  11. I tried to slip a couple of hot fixes, KB969618 & KB970059, by just adding them in with the rest of my hot fixes. Didn’t work. Then tried using the nlite addon maker with the following switches: /passive /quiet /norestart . Didn’t work. I have extracted same, and there is a “.msp” file extension. I saw somewhere that I could use the switch: /qb- , however, the nlite addon maker does not recognize this file extension in order to make the cab. The only reason I need these is because I am using the powerpoint viewer 2007 SP2. I don’t have “office” as such, only as it pertains to this ’viewer’. I did see some rather complex scripts, but I’m not smart enough to go that route. If that’s all there is, so be it, I can always add them in after words. Thanks in advance for any suggestions, Eddie
  12. Regarding some ‘office’ hot fixes

    Sorry for my ignorance, but was: "regedit /s $1\Install\tweaks.reg" supposed to be: "regedit /s $1\Install\ppviewer.reg" And do I assume correctly that "both" the "ppviewer.msi" & the "ppviewer.reg" are to be placed in my $1\Install folder. And the 'cmdlines.txt' in the root of $OEM$. Thanks again for your help
  13. Regarding some ‘office’ hot fixes

    O.K., Thanks for the assistance, Beats, It seems to have worked, I now have an ".msi & reg file", and per the following: Soooo, if I can figure out the silent switch for the "ppviewer.msi", (maybe /qb) I can add it as a hotfix, and then apply the "ppviewer.reg" file after the slipsteam installation. Does this seem correct? Thanks again, Eddie PS: I do have an $OEM$/$1/Install "folder" that I put my 'tweaks.reg' file in, but I don't know how to create a command to install other tweaks = regedit.exe /s %systemdrive%\Install\tweaks.reg Could it be as simple as = regedit.exe /s %systemdrive%\Install\ppviewer.reg
  14. Regarding some ‘office’ hot fixes

    Thanks for replying, ChiefZeke, however, as I mentioned, I don't have an "office suite" program. I only use the powerpoint viewer 2007, for when people send me emails that you need a powerpoint viewer to see. I looked at this "office integrator v1.1", but again, it won't let me "do" anything because I don't have an "office suite". I was able to add the service pack 2 and the two hotfixes but without an "office suite" you can not proceed. I was wondering if maybe I could use the write up " Making A 7-Zip Switchless Installer " from here: http://www.wincert.net/forum/index.php?/to...less-installer/ and then using the result to make an nlite addon Sticking the result with the rest of my regular hotfixes. Maybe there just isn't an easy way. Eddie
  15. Thanks, Seraph I will give it a try on my next attempt. FYI to b-man, I am currently using the following: Windows Genuine Advantage Add on -- http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6908 Hope this helps, Thanks again Seraph, Eddie
  16. I don't mean to hijack anyone else's inquire, but I had posted the same general question at the application forum: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=133553 Seraph, was wondering if you could be more precise on the runonce part. I don't understand where I would put the windows update agent 3.0 exe and exactly what the runonce command would be. As an FYI, I already create an $1\Install folder where I put my "tweaks.reg" and I put the following command in nlite's runonce area: regedit.exe /s %systemdrive%\Install\tweaks.reg This works perfectly. Thanks in advance for any guidance, Eddie
  17. Windows update agent 3.0

    I understand that I can make a cab using the following switches: WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe /wuforce /quiet /norestart Is the resulting "cab" something I simply stick into my hot fixes folder when using nlite or is there a different method that I should use. Maybe, runonce? And if runonce, could someone give me the actual command. I know where to place run once commands using nlite, but I don’t know how to actually ‘create’ a command. Or should I not even be doing this at all? Thanks in advance, Eddie
  18. Windows update agent 3.0

    Nick, thanks for the quick response. Will do service pack addon method as that's what I know how to do. Thanks again, Eddie
  19. Integrating drivers with no .inf files

    Have you tried: http://www.drivermagician.com/Lite.htm It can find all "non" ms drivers (inf). I used it to create my driver folder for nlite. It was very easy. Only a suggestion, good luck. Eddie
  20. In the past I have used the following switch for AVG Free without any problems. This switch did not seem to work this time. It installed silently, however, the updater “database” keep saying there was an error. When I installed the ‘exe’ normally there were no issues. AVG_Free_STF_en_8_100a1295 http://free.grisoft.com/doc/avg-anti-virus-free/ /HIDE /DONT_START_APPS /NO_WELCOME /NO_AVGW_STARTUP /QUIT_IF_INSTALLED Thanks in advance for any guidance, Eddie
  21. Could someone point me to where I can find the info on how to use this new lite 'exe' to make a service pack addon. I used the old method that Shark had, which I have used before, but it did not silently install. Was I supposed to unzip and use the "msi"? Maybe it can be added to first post. thanks in advance, Eddie Or maybe the silent switch/'s so that I can use the nlite addon maker. maybe /sall /rs
  22. If your still looking for the info have a look at autopatcher: http://www.autopatcher.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=705 Hope this helps, Eddie
  23. Time Zone

    I also got the Kabul time zone, and yes I used the 951072 v2. tried this last week, central time zone usa. using latest nlite no other issues. otherwise, install went smoothly. maybe next time i will try the slip cab the other guy posted. hope this helps, eddie
  24. Noticed yesterday that I could only view web pages in this forum and also at two other forums, one of those being cnet, that I am registered in, using IE6, my choice browser for some time now. The display was all messed up in these msfn forums. Ran all kinds of "anti" scans, nothing found. Decided to reformat using nlite. Problem still the same. Decided to install Firefox. Using Firefox, I am able to log in and out. Pages display properly. Anyone have any suggestions on how to fix IE6. And, please, don't say quite using IE6 and use Firefox. I happen to like IE6. All windows updates are current. Running Windows XP Pro SP3 Thanks in advance for any suggestions. Eddie Forgot to mention that I have been getting "IEXPLORE.EXE" 'hangs', with 100% CPU useage even after I close the browser. This was before and after the reformat. Also tried to reinstall Ie.inf. No luck.
  25. Can log in with Firefox - Can't log in with IE6

    Issue resolved. Seems when I slipstreamed the Google Tool bar it created this problem. I reformatted, going back to Windows XP Pro, only. After the usual basic install stuff and windows updates, I began to install my various programs. Up till this time I could login to msfn.org, upon installation of Google tool bar, I lost the ability to login to msfn.org. Uninstalled Google, and everything was fine again. Don't know why Google breaks my computer but it does. Just an FYI to anyone regarding 'tool bars'. Eddie
