  1. Windows 7 & Group Policy not Working ?

    1. Backup your DCs and policies to be on the safe side. 2. Download and install the Administrative Templates (ADMX) for Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 on a Windows 7 SP1 or 2008 R2 computer. 3. The admx and adml template files will be installed at "%PROGRAMFILES%\Microsoft Group Policy\win72008r2\PolicyDefinitions" on your Win7 SP1 computer. Copy the PolicyDefinitions folder to "%WINDIR%\SYSVOL\domain\Policies\PolicyDefinitions" on the DC. 4. Install the Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7 with Service Pack 1 (SP1) You will from now on manage the group policies from your Win7 SP1 computer. If you open the GPMC on the 2003 server it won't know about the ADMX files. If you open the GPMC on a 2008 server (not R2), you will see some error messages popup, because the admx files are a newer format than what 2008 knows about. Look at this article for more info Supporting Windows 7 Group Policy Settings with Windows Server 2003 Domain Controllers

  5. How to install WMIC in WinPE?

    wmic csproduct list /format:list works for me in both Win7(my computer) and WinPE 3.0 (in VirtualBox). Did you completely install WMI? Here is what I installed in my WinPE. dism /image:C:\winpe_x86\mount /Add-Package /PackagePath:"C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\x86\WinPE_FPs\winpe-scripting.cab" dism /image:C:\winpe_x86\mount /Add-Package /PackagePath:"C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\x86\WinPE_FPs\en-us\winpe-scripting_en-us.cab" dism /image:C:\winpe_x86\mount /Add-Package /PackagePath:"C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\x86\WinPE_FPs\winpe-wmi.cab" dism /image:C:\winpe_x86\mount /Add-Package /PackagePath:"C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\x86\WinPE_FPs\en-us\winpe-wmi_en-us.cab"
  6. XP w/SP3 - BSOD after sysprep applies

    Maybe try going back to using your image with slipstreamed xp sp3 disk, and in the pre-sysprep image install terminal services? Or figure out how to install it post-sysprep.
  7. 1 xp image for 3 pc's

    You can if you use sysprep and mysysprep. If the notebook is a tabletpc then you probably can't since it is a different OS. If it is not a tablet, then you can have 1 image for all 3. Are all 3 using the same OS?

  9. Vista RAW Glass (.msstyle)

    Thank you, this is nice.

    Why don't you use the powercfg.exe in Win2k? The executable works in Win2k.
  11. WinPE 2 colors

    Thanks for the reply. The key you gave me has the same colors as the one I found earlier. It looks like the GUI is using windows xp style menus vs the classic menus. I want to use the classic scheme, but I want the menus to use the xp style menus. WinPE is doing it like that imo. I want to replicate that in WinXP. EDIT: OK, my research has led me to the topic of manifests.
  12. WinPE 2 colors

    Hello, I am trying to make my WinXP classic color scheme look like WinPE 2. If you open notepad in WinPE 2, you'll see that the menus have 2 colors when highlighted. I exported the colors from WinPE registry [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Colors]. They are the same values as in XP's classic color scheme, so there has to be more. Is there anywhere else in the registry where theme settings are stored. Thanks.
  13. I got this from the tweaking section of this forum. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 ;Show all standard MS icons on desktop.

  14. Sysprep WGA

    This post about WinXP, Sysprep, and WGA. On the master image before running sysprep, is it OK to install the WGA control? Or is it better to do it on each computer after the image has been installed? I am talking about the WGA browser tool that pops up when you try to download a file such as: Sysprep Update version 1.1 I have had issues in the past with WGA thinking the computer's key is not legit, even though it is. Or is this issue fixed? Thanks for any help.
