  1. I never asked for my posts to be deleted, only my account. Not logging into a site and deleting the cookies is definitely not the same as deleting an account. Having an account somewhere means you also have a password somewhere. If, for instance, MSFN got hacked, and for some reason they were able to recover passwords, that would mean that potentially my password would be retrieved as well, if my account were still here. If my account got deleted, no such chance. This is of course going past the fact that you should have different passwords for different sites, but I hope you get what I mean.
  2. No, that's allright then Thanks for the help
  3. Fair enough. Is it possible to have it deactivated then?
  4. How can I get my MSFN account deleted? Haven't been here for ages and I'm doing cleanup. Thanks in advance!
  5. Never mind... I found out what the problem is: If you install from a OEM dvd, then it has OOBE "built in", so it runs regardless of what you set in your XML. With a "normal" DVD it runs without a hitch. Thanks for the help everyone.
  6. Tried it by adapting my XML based on the generated on from vLite, but still no success... Next step will be to strip my XML and try to build it up from scratch... It's gonna take a long long time... :S My question now is: why does Microsoft document stuff that does not work?
  7. My XML has been created partly by the WSIM, partly by the online XML creator, and partly by stuff that I have found over here. The XML checks out in WSIM, only "error" it gives is that "SkipMachineOOBE" is deprecated. In which audit do you have the timezone stuff? Audituser or auditsystem? What does that command do exactly? And in which section do I put it? Thanks for the help
  8. Also tried it by both adding a user and an administrator. Also to no avail... I have found multiple thread on here and on the internet that describe the same problem, but none seem to provide a proper solution... I really really hope someone can help me. Regards, Ben
  9. Did that, doesn't work either... Thanks for the suggestion though
  10. I have now also tried with: <SkipMachineOobe>False</...> and <SkipMachineOobe> deleted and <SkipUserOobe>False</..> All to no avail... It keeps asking me for a user, a network location and timezone... I am now going to try it by creating 2 users: 1 admin and 1 "normal" account, and having it login with the admin account. No clue if that is gonna work, no chance to try it until tonight. Any thoughts, tips, etc are very very very and more than welcome.
  11. With the help of a lot of people on the forum here (although they didn't even know it ), I have managed to create an Autounattend.xml. The problem now is however, that it doesn't work properly. At least: it doesn't automatically create the user I specified and asks me the autoprotection settings. I have specified <OOBE> <HideEULAPage>true</HideEULAPage> <NetworkLocation>Home</NetworkLocation> <ProtectYourPC>3</ProtectYourPC> <SkipMachineOOBE>true</SkipMachineOOBE> <SkipUserOOBE>true</SkipUserOOBE> </OOBE> <TimeZone>W. Europe Standard Time</TimeZone> <UserAccounts> <AdministratorPassword> <Value>ThisIsATempPass</Value> <PlainText>true</PlainText> </AdministratorPassword> <LocalAccounts> <LocalAccount wcm:action="add"> <Password> <Value>temporary</Value> <PlainText>true</PlainText> </Password> <Description>It's me</Description> <DisplayName>me</DisplayName> <Group>Administrators</Group> <Name>me</Name> </LocalAccount> </LocalAccounts> </UserAccounts> Also my setupcomplete.cmd doesn't run, but that is another issue.

  12. I have got the exact same problem... Did you resolve this in the end? My Vista + SP1 is able to install without problems. However, once I integrate all the other updates after SP1, but then I get the 0x8030001 error. I'm starting to think it's because of my install.wim being larger than 4GB, but I'm not sure about that. Would it work if I would split my install.wim into multiple files? Any help on this?
  13. Update: Shuffling stuff around in my config.js and deselecting "Sort withing Categories" worked. (It also helps to actually change the stuff in the relevant folder ). Is there a "Feature Request page"? B/c I would like to add "ordering applications in WPI Config". Via up/down arrows or sth would be good enough for me. Saves me (and others) from going into the config.js. Thanks again
  14. Thanks for the answers Kel So it's not possible to select the programs to install @T13? (Basically: WPI runs, you select programs, it writes the selections to a config file, it runs at first logon and installs all selected programs). Too bad, but oh well, was gonna change stuff around anyway, so no biggie. Just have to wait a bit longer before hitting the drinks when installing a PC The switches you are talking about can be found on the WPI site? Deselecting the "Sort within categories" doesn't do anything. Might have to try switching around my config file, as that is now sorted alphabetically as well. So for instance, I now see: Classic Menu for Office 2007 (install order: 510) Office 2007 (install order: 501) Which doesn't make sense, as Classic menu is a dependency of Office, so it would make more sense to have it underneath it. They do install in the order set, so that is good. Must add that I did see this thread of mritter, which seems to discuss my "problem" as well. So hopefully this will be fixed in the next version Again: really like WPI, also in the process of starting to use it for my Vista DVD (although that needs a whole lot of more work...) Keep up the great work
