    German "leftovers" found a new home

    After overtaking the last domain by stupid and some headaches we found a new "german" home; http://windows-unattended.org We are known as german-nlite.de, win-lite.de and we hope, you will follow us to our new forum. THX to nuhi for nlite and NTLite! Greetz, g-force

    Using "mkisofs" instead of standard ISO-engine - the choice isn`t stored and has to set everytime manually. Edit: Made another run - everything is fine, choice is stored. nLite.ini: [General]Language = DeutschCPriority = 2AdvTweaksNoCompatPopPath1 = W:\! XP-BEARBEITUNG_x32\XPCD-Test_1.4.9.3[ISO]ISO_engine = 1

    nuhi is back, post your suggestions here

    As XP will arrive at a "final" state in 2014, it would be a good idea to take nLite to a final version, too. THX nuhi for refreshing nLite again! Nuhi is back, and so am I.

    Creating Bootable CD

    Welcome to MSFN-Forums! Please read the red advice in the forums header. Please attach your "winnt.sif" too, but delete your CD-Key in it.

    Maybe "DriverPacks.net" is your solution: http://driverpacks.net/driverpacks/windows/xp/x86/lan/10.05.1

    [Solved]confused about locating windows installation

    I always work like that. I mount my XPCD-ISO with UltraISO, then point nLite to that (virtual) CD-ROM.

    nLite frozen when adding themes

    The cause for failed integration of your themes is your folder-structure. Every xxx.msstyles needs its own folder (mostly named like the style). It would be better and easier for you to install XP first as a working OS and then use nLite to get things work. You`ll be able to get the correct structure of the folders in XP, e.g. "%systemroot%\Resources\Themes". I always prefer to use the same Host-OS as the one to modify.

    Why Slipstream Drivers and Hotfixes?

    Is there any reason to do so? With nLite you integrate your drivers, they are available during XP-Setup. If you want to install them, you need to treat them like an "Unattended-Software-Installation". Edit: Double-Post here:

    Why Slipstream Drivers and Hotfixes?

    Having your Hotfixes integrated will prevent you of spending lots of time AFTER XP-Install. And you don`t need to be online and do the same thinga again, again, ...again... , ag....... One-time-in-5-years-XP-Installers: Don`t mind about us, who install 5 times a day....

    (once again): How to include .NET 3.5 in nLite?

    You didn`t SEARCH for yourself? Don`t Mind, I did: An ADDON can be be included using "nLite", quite simple.

    Integrating a mp3 into Xp

    WPI can do that.
  17. Agree - I use "setup.cmd" in some of my Silent-WinRAR-SFX (I usually install with this method). Some Setups won`t install (or stuck) without that "start /wait" because of false or "too fast" execution. I´m sure it makes a difference in a .cmd.

    History Not Showing In Explorer

    It seems to make a diiference if you start "explorer.exe" from "system32" of using your program. Maybe your program "Run" adds some parameters, I don`t know. Search for "explorer.exe" on your system (there are different "shortcuts") and execute them by using your "Run".

    What Win ver COA do I have?

    I think you bought a key (maybe few years ago), but you got to know what key you paid for. If you know there is no problem to lean a genuine XPCD that matches your key. A useful keyword for your search is PID.

    redirect "%USERPROFILE%\My Documents" ONLY

    I´M not sure about that, cause this is a HKCU-Setting: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders] "Personal"="YourDrive\YourFolder" I replaced my current setting with "YourDrive\YourFolder". I´m on a german system, don`t know if I´m right about "My Documents = Eigene Dateien".

    Computer name

    You`ve got to modify the "sysprep.inf" manually and delete the asterik "Computername = * ". It´s explained here: http://capitalhead.com/articles/force-sysprep-to-prompt-for-a-computer-name-during-mini-setup-in-windows-xp.aspx
  22. Maybe I miss the point due to my poor english. That`s what I understand (written in a .cmd): 1.) start /wait MySetup.exe ---> executes and waits until end of "MySetup.exe", then executes the next line 2.) start MySetup.exe ---> executes "MySetup.exe", doesn`t wait and executes immediatly next line of the .cmd 3.) no switch at all ---> same as 1.), because "wait" is set by default Please correct me if I`m wrong.
  23. A little "Push". I`m still looking for a backup of the german translation.

    How to insert drivers for new Raid Controller

    Glad to hear your good news. I`ve done this procedure by Try & Error a few years ago - without rabbit`s help... Enjoy, g-force
  25. If I don`t use Start /wait im my CMD, all lines are executed without waiting. So it makes a difference for me. There is no waiting enabled by default in a CMD.
