EDIT: Or maybe can sombody please show me a working xml (obviously without personal info's..eg key..lol) EDIT: After validating my xml, i get this error. Thank you
  10. Thanks for your reply, this was really helpfull, and now hopefully i should be able to get the server roles installed unattendenly via xml.
  11. Thank you for Moving to appropriate section. Hopefully someone will be able to answer my above question now.
  12. Can you please expain, what you meant by inputpath. Am trying to install server roles/features using xml unattendedly, but dont know how to install servermanager features using xml. I did copy and pasted the above scripts to my Autounattend.xml, but installation fails. Please help/advice Thank you
  13. btw is there any way i can install multiple features using ServerManagerCmd.exe, eg desktop experience, bitlocker, etc. without restarting for each features to be installed? EDIT: I got it. Thanks to aviv00 for his help
  14. Glad to hear your theme is working now. I only use 1 method, and that is xml, as the cmd method does not allow me to install couple of features in one go (maybe it does, but dont know how). so instead i tried xml, but failed. I do not use vlite at all, used it in the past, but stopped using it long time ago. Its a clean xml file, just with basic unattend scripts. Can you please show an xml on how you added yours? Thank you
  15. i added this to my Autounattend.xml, but for some reason half through installation, it fails and gives some sort of error "(null" blah blah...) and install end. Am i missing anything else from Autounattend.xml? Thanks and did your theme work?
  16. Spywareblaster, no hassles no memory hog, just open, and add bad sites to your browser block list, and off you go. And yes tech mind/Common sense is the key to avoid malwares, because even the top antimalware app cant catch everything.
  17. River tuner v2.22, Switchless installer: River Tuner v2.22
  18. When you launch regedit.exe, go to that key [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\LastTheme] and check if the theme name shows aero, or your theme name. If it shows aero, then you must edit this WITHIN regedit and change it to your theme name. If its already showing your theme name, then its fine, just export and your done
  19. Your welcome m8, and thanks as well on how to install desktop experience unattendenly.
  20. I have recently finished converting my server 2008 as workstation. I also applied the settings for theme to server registry, so its loaded on first logon. Configure your server first with your theme, then launch regedit.exe and export these following keys. Example of my one: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ThemeManager] "ThemeActive"="1" "LoadedBefore"="1" "LastUserLangID"="1033" "LastLoadedDPI"="96" "DllName"=hex(2):25,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,52,00,6f,00,6f,00,\ 74,00,25,00,5c,00,72,00,65,00,73,00,6f,00,75,00,72,00,63,00,65,00,73,00,5c,\ 00,54,00,68,00,65,00,6d,00,65,00,73,00,5c,00,57,00,69,00,6e,00,64,00,6f,00,\ 77,00,73,00,20,00,37,00,5c,00,57,00,69,00,6e,00,64,00,6f,00,77,00,73,00,20,\ 00,37,00,2e,00,6d,00,73,00,73,00,74,00,79,00,6c,00,65,00,73,00,00,00 "ColorName"="NormalColor" "SizeName"="NormalSize" Note (for this key, you must edit and add your themes xxxx.msstyles name before exporting, (Defualt is aero, i editied this to windows 7.msstyles and then saved it) [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\LastTheme] "ThemeFile"=hex(2):25,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,52,00,6f,00,6f,00,\ 74,00,25,00,5c,00,72,00,65,00,73,00,6f,00,75,00,72,00,63,00,65,00,73,00,5c,\ 00,74,00,68,00,65,00,6d,00,65,00,73,00,5c,00,57,00,69,00,6e,00,64,00,6f,00,\ 77,00,73,00,20,00,37,00,2e,00,74,00,68,00,65,00,6d,00,65,00,00,00 "Wallpaper"=hex(2):25,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,52,00,6f,00,6f,00,\ 74,00,25,00,5c,00,57,00,65,00,62,00,5c,00,57,00,61,00,6c,00,6c,00,70,00,61,\ 00,70,00,65,00,72,00,5c,00,57,00,61,00,6c,00,6c,00,70,00,61,00,70,00,65,00,\ 72,00,2e,00,6a,00,70,00,67,00,00,00 "DisplayName of Modified"="" [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop] "Wallpaper"="C:\\Windows\\Web\\Wallpaper\\Wallpaper.jpg" Note: for custom themes to work properly (if you use it), make sure your uxtheme is also patched uxtheme patch can be found here Uxtheme Patch After that, i added a cmd file to global startup menu, "ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup", so it applies these registry settings on first logon. My cmd: @echo off start /wait %systemroot%\Regedit.exe /s %systemroot%\Setup\Workstation\Theme\theme.reg Shutdown /r /t 06 DEL /Q /F %0 This cmd file will delete itself and restart, so your settings takes place. But as you mentioned above, make sure you have your theme service enabled as well. Optionally you can try this as well, only if you have an Autounattend.xml created then add this(i have not tried it with server, but with vista it works) <Themes> <CustomDefaultThemeFile>%WINDIR%\resources\themes\VistaGlass.theme</CustomDefaultThemeFile> </Themes> Audio solution Add this to a reg file then import. [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Multimedia\SystemProfile] "SystemResponsiveness"=dword:00000014 And finally , yes you can use "SETUPCOMPLETE.CMD" on server as well, i personally use that to apply few stuffs. If this still does not work then go to services and set "Multimedia class schedular to Automatic" Server 2008, Defualt is manual, on vista defualt is Automatic. Good luck Btw how did you enable desktop experience, am trying to enable or to get it installed unattendedly, so my server is fully set up as workstation out of box. I hate installing desktop experience via server manager.
  21. thanks x-shadow-x for your reply, i already got it working.
  22. Is there a way to place a shortcut using winrar sfx in start menu/accessories ? Thanks in advance edit: Done.
  23. I have been using vista since it released, and always had UAC disabled, ans still had no malicious crap on my system. and yes i agree with Rudi1, it makes you answer stupid questions like " are you sure" etc... IMO UAC is a stupid MS security feature, and am glad win7 provides full control over UAC. If ms removed that UAC security crap from windows 7 and replaced it with something better, then maybe i would be more than happy to use the securty feature without disabling.
  24. I dont think so, and i wonder what makes you say this.
