  1. Whenever I open "My Computer", there is the "favourite links bar" to the left. How do I disable that via the registry?
  2. Nice guide and I have a question regarding the Microsoft updates part. If I follow instructions that you provided in Part 1 then I don't need to follow Part 2 right? Part 2 covers the batch install? Also regarding driver install. When you mean you want the .inf files, it's similar to Windows XP's unattended method where only the .inf files are used? Is it normal for Vista to ask for network settings after it hit the desktop even though I set it in the answer file to "Home Network" settings? Why did you set logon count to "2" and not more? What does the numerical value mean? I set the "protect your PC" value to "3" and yet auto updates is still enabled. Why is this the case?
  3. f u r using in unattended install, its not working coz ie7 must be executed atleast once. so after the runonceex execution, just open the ie7 windows thru Run registry entry and during next reboot, apply the tweak and remove the Run registry entry. I'm not sure if I understand you. Are you saying that in a unattended install, it won't work?
  4. Just wondering if the methods listed on the first page work with Vista?
  5. I'm not sure if I understand you. So you're saying that I do need to install those patches because .NET Framework 3 uses an older version of .NET Framework 2? What about the other patches?
  6. I think I installed all of the required updates as listed in the first thread for Windows XP Professional SP2 and yet when I go on Windows Update, the following list of updates still appear. Why? Another weird thing is that I installed .Net Framework 3 and there are updates for .Net Framework 2.

  7. Guys, I really need your help. How is it possible that some of you are able to get this working and yet I can't?
  8. To my knowledge, you can't use paths in SVCPACK.INF. I have never experimented with that. That would actually be cleaner. Change the %HFSLIP% variable so it points to your custom directory and then move all files that are installed from %HFSLIP% by HFSLIP.CMD into that folder. But it's more manual work. I have never used those so I can't really say what's causing the failure. Here are some possibilities:1) You need a reboot for the changes to take effect 2) There's a mini post-install (titled "Windows Update") taking place when you first log on after Windows setup has completed. Some of the things you inject into the registry may be overwritten by that. How do I ensure that doesn't happen? Restarting the computer will not do anything.
  9. I'm talking about the registry tweaks. Only the DPI and screensaver tweak did not work. Do you know why?
  10. I placed my registry tweak file in HFGUIRUNONCE and the settings doesn't appear to have applied. Maybe it's the way the entries are entered cause even if I include it with my main registry tweak file in HFSVCPACK, it still doesn't apply.
  11. Yes I am. I use cmdlines.txt to initiate my registry tweak file. All other registry tweaks are activated, but the screensaver is not. I don't understand why.
  12. bump! When are you guys applying this tweak? I try to apply it at the same time as any other registry tweaks and this still doesn't work for me.
  13. Simply create a reg file and add this into it: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\HFSLIPTotalSlipstream] Run this reg file at T-13, at first boot or after, it's the same. Do I put that file in HFGUIRUNONCE?
  14. If you are referring to the HFSLIP entry... You could consider it a confirmation that HFSLIP was used to update your CD. If you used a recent version of HFSLIP, you can easily remove it by clicking the Change/Remove button. ModifyPE.exe is mandatory in some situations:- when integrating IE7 (not slipstreaming) [this is actually not the case for Windows XP in the current final; I should rectify that] - when slipstreaming Office Update engine (OPUC4.CAB) - when one or more of these HFEXPERT folders are used: CODECS, APPREPLACEMENT and WIN Thanks to you and Kiki for the reply. Is it possible that you can add this as a feature into the next version to stop that entry from being added into the add/remove program? Tom, I know you said that it won't be practical for you to add SATA/RAID driver support, but is there any possibility that you can reconsider? Like add support for only the most popular models or at least the Intel SATA driver?
  15. Please quote only the section that you'd be referring to - pls dont quote an entire huge post......And which method do you follow? As the first post says: I went to the %temp% folder and I don't see any of those files there. I just typed "%temp%" into the address bar and it took me to a directory, but those files aren't present even though I double click on the .exe file and it finish extracting.
  16. Also is modifyPE.exe mandatory now? With previous versions, I didn't have to add that program, but now I do or I'll get an error.
  17. Thanks for the response. I have one final question then. If what you say is true, then how come in th add/remove screen, there is a HF program installed? So HFSLIP does not resort to any hacking method to integrate/slipstream the hotfixes?
  18. So I just drop my registry tweak file into HFGUIRUNONCE then and also have a registry file in HFSVCPACK? Will you consider adding a feature of automatically integrating a reboot? If in that way doesn't work you can add your reg tweak at "Startup" directory. Simply you must create a cmd file in HFSVCPACK that copy another cmd file to "%AllUsersProfile%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup" and in this cmd file you write: %SystemRoot%\REGEDIT.EXE /S "<position of your reg file>" I use this technique for adding reg tweaks in later times. For examples at windows first run or at second reboot. Ps. If you use this way, remember to delete the cmd file copied in %AllUsersProfile%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup Will the computer require a reboot if I apply the registry tweaks at the startup? Also can I delete that CMD file through cleanup.cmd file?
