  1. Hi, 2 of my friends have bought identical laptops HP Omnibook 6100. I've put XP Pro on them and for some reason they both are set on extended desktop - even though theres no monitor attached. I cant disable it in the display properties as its greyed out but its ticked. So at the moment you have to scroll around the screen to get from the top to the bottom of the desktop and also left to right - this even happens on the logon screen!

  2. Hi, i've just started using this after using the RunOnce method. I'm getting the following error after windows has installed but before my apps have installed :

    Windows cannot find d:\wpi\WPI.hta

    Im using a multiboot DVD - my WPI folder is located on the DVD as:




    I can move the WPI folder to the root on the DVD thats not a problem but is that where it should be located ?

  3. Just noticed that i have arguement instructions that belong to DetachedProgram=".\system32\cmd.exe"

    Arguments="/Q /C FOR /F %I IN (%SystemRoot%\SYSTEM32\$WINNT$.INF) DO (FOR %J IN (%I$OEM$) DO (IF EXIST %J (start /min /D%J Drivers.cmd)))"

    Think i'l just find a different way of installing the drivers so i dont have 2 instances of DetachedProgram= :}

  4. Hi, in Winnt.sif i install the drivers by placing the following in [GuiUnattended]


    But i've added a video now to the setup which uses


    Can i use 2 detached programs because i cant get it to work

    tried this



    But only the 1st option is picked up

    Any ideas ?

  5. Sorry change it to this - cant edit it for some reason

    REG ADD %KEY%01 /VE /D "Acrobat Reader" /f

    REG ADD %KEY%01 /V 1 /D "%PP%\install\acrobat\ar6.exe /qn" /f

    REG ADD %KEY%02 /VE /D "Adware Pro 6" /f

    REG ADD %KEY%02 /V 1 /D "%PP%\install\adware\adw6pro.exe /qn" /f

    Your Runonce should look like this

    cmdow @ /HID
    @echo off

    FOR %%i IN (D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) DO IF EXIST %%i:\win51ip.SP2 SET CDROM=%%i:

    SET PP=%SystemDrive%\Install\

    SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx

    REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Installing Your Apps 4 U - Sit Back and Enjoy" /f

    REG ADD %KEY%01 /VE /D "Acrobat Reader" /f
    REG ADD %KEY%01 /V 1 /D "%PP%\install\acrobat\ar6.exe /qn" /f

    REG ADD %KEY%02 /VE /D "Adware Pro 6" /f
    REG ADD %KEY%02 /V 1 /D "%PP%\install\adware\adw6pro.exe /qn" /f


  6. Change

    REG ADD %KEY /VE /D "Acrobat Reader" /f

    REG ADD %KEY /V 1 /D "%PP%%systemdrive%\install\acrobat\ar6.exe /qn" /f

    REG ADD %KEY%01 /VE /D "Adware Pro 6" /f

    REG ADD %KEY%01 /V 1 /D "%PP%%systemdrive%\install\adware\adw6pro.exe /qn" /f


    REG ADD %KEY%1 /VE /D "Acrobat Reader" /f

    REG ADD %KEY%1 /V 1 /D "%PP%\install\acrobat\ar6.exe /qn" /f

    REG ADD %KEY%2 /VE /D "Adware Pro 6" /f

    REG ADD %KEY%2 /V 1 /D "%PP%\install\adware\adw6pro.exe /qn" /f

    With those software apps in $OEM$\$1\Install\




    that should do it

  7. Hi, i've read various posts on different methods of installing ZAP 6.5 unattended but it would never fully work for me - after putting this and that together this is what worked for me

    Install ZAP as normal on your PC

    Setup ZAP how you want it to run

    Goto Overview > Preferences Tab > Select Backup and save the file as zoneconfig.xml

    Now open Regedit & export the complete key from:

    HKLM > Software > Zone Labs & call it zone1.reg

    HKCU > Software > Zone Labs & call it zone2.reg

    Now add this to your Runonce - change the paths to your local setup

    REG ADD %KEY%26 /VE /D "ZoneAlarm Pro 6.5.700" /f
    REG ADD %KEY%26 /V 1 /D "%SystemDrive%\Install\zone_alarm\setup.exe /s /i /noreboot /lickey YourLicenseKeyWithoutDashes %SystemDrive%\Install\zone_alarm\zonesettings.xml" /f
    REG ADD %KEY%26 /V 2 /D "Taskkill /F /IM zclient" /f
    REG ADD %KEY%26 /V 3 /D "REGEDIT /S %SystemDrive%\Install\zone_alarm\zone1.reg" /f
    REG ADD %KEY%26 /V 4 /D "REGEDIT /S %SystemDrive%\Install\zone_alarm\zone2.reg" /f

    Hope this helps someone B)

  8. I've changed the DVD text that shows when the DVD starts from

    Press Enter to boot from DVD...


    Press ENTER to go to the Menu System

    If you've started installing XP please WAIT for another

    30 Seconds for the installation to automatically continue

    Now i want to add this

    To boot from the Hard Drive press Esc

    so i added this but it doesnt work

    if $lastKey == key[esc]; then cls

    Also tried this

    if $lastKey == key[esc]; then goto boot

    Whole thing looks like this


    print "\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n"
    set textColor= color[brightgreen on black]
    print c "Press ENTER to go to the Menu System \n"
    print "\n"
    set textColor= color[brightred on black]
    print c "If you've started installing XP please WAIT for another \n"
    print c "30 Seconds for the installation to automatically continue \n"
    getkey 30 boot 0x80
    if $lastKey == key[enter]; then script menus/rootmenu.scn
    if $lastKey == key[esc]; then cls
    # When no key found...
    goto boot

    Any ideas - I just want to press ESC to boot from the hard drive
