  1. Beta Login VSI Released

    Login Virtual Session Index (Login VSI), is a free and easy to use benchmarking methodology from Login Consultants. The Login VSI is a complete toolset that allows you to easily compare scalability all of today's major virtualization platforms and technologies. Login VSI supports most recent Windows OS’s (including 32 and 64bit), Office 2003 and 2007, all major application streaming technologies and most importantly both SBC and VDI. The next beta (out in a couple of weeks), will also include full support for benchmarking VDI environments” “Because the setup is so simple there is an infinite amount of combinations and technologies you can now compare. For instance, you can also measure the relative impact of a virus scanner or performance optimization technologies. Additionally, Login VSI will be a perfect tool to compare scalability of different virtualization platforms.” Login VSI can be downloaded from here.
  2. Well I didn't realize you were using some kind of custom tool... I always do stuff from batch scripts... But I see you allready found a post that deals with it. *shrugs at customs tools... they always complicate stuff... script it yourself *
  3. So you have all the tweaks in one .reg file? Then i'd suggest you make an RunOnce entry (in the registry -> HKLM>Software>Microsoft>Windows>RunOnce) RegTweaks = "regedit /s regfile.reg" this should load your regfile into the registry. Hope this helps -Henk
  4. I think he uses his USB HD/stick to install Windows in the first place, so disabling it in the BIOS will result to not being able to boot the setup... Maybe it's an option to first boot a Pre-Boot environment like Windows PE, in which you run Diskpart to create and format partitions on your hard-drive and change the drive letter of your usb device. And after that call Winnt32.exe from te installation source (with or without unattended switches)
  5. Mine is not the best Unattended solution out there, but it does the task i've designed it for beautifully. Here's what it does: 1. Windows PE image that's being booted from PXE (WDS server) 2. Connect to a network share that contains the source files for the Win2k3 Std. installation. 3. Automatic configuration of RAID controller (to make a raid 0 configution). 4. Automatic partitioning of the logical disk into 2 partitions and set the drive letter of the cd-rom to E. 5. Complete unattended installation of Windows 6. After installation, all drivers not yet recognized by Windows are being installed silently. 7. Automatic teaming of my 2 NIC's and set an static IP to the network team. 8. Automatic installation of Terminal Services 9. Automatic installation of Citrix Presentation Server 4.0 10. Automatic installation of ALL application needed by our users. The last 3 steps are not mine to take credit for though. We do this with the help of Solution 4 by Login Consultants Take a look at their website.
  6. Does the account you use to login with RIS have enough permissions to delete computer objects from the active directory?
  7. If you add Office 2007 to BDD, you should be able to specify serial number and installation path etc for the application. Look for tabs in the Add application Wizard when you Add Office 2007. Alternatively, you could always make a .MST file for Office, and use that.
  8. Unable to RIS Dell GX745

    Is it the error: RIS couldn't find a suitable driver for your network card, during init of text-based setup? If so, you need to add the inf,cat and sys file of the drivers to the i386 (source) dir. Example: RemoteInstall\Setup\Eng\Images\Windows_XP_SP1\i386 Hope this helps -Henk
  9. Not programming... but usefull nevertheless! http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/default.mspx Usefull resource about VBScripting (especially WMI)
  10. VBscript in commandline

    How do you call the vbscript, by just using the vbscript.vbs? or do you use a batch file which contains: call cscript somescript.vbs //nologo exit
  11. How Can i test my cmdlines.txt

    Can't help you then, i'm sorry. not used to RunDLL. I always use .cmd or .bat scripts
  12. d:\i386\winnt32 /syspart:c: /tempdrive:c /unattend:unattend.txt /s:d:\i386 This is what I use.. maybe try that Assuming D: is your cd-rom drive letter. If you type it from run box you might want to add " " to both ends so: "d:\i386\winnt32 /syspart:c: /tempdrive:c /unattend:unattend.txt /s:d:\i386"
  13. Sure, if you're stuck at some point with my 'method' give me a howler, I'll try to help you out.
  14. How Can i test my cmdlines.txt

    Well the easiest thing you can do, is pipe the output of the last command (that is responsible for the filecopy) to a temporary file you do this by adding >tempfile.txt add the end of the command and then delete the tempfile. so for example [code RunDll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 .\$$\Cursors\Aero cursors\Install.inf >tempfile.txt del tempfile.txt That will route the output to the file tmpfile.txt instead of to the screen and then delete the tmpfile.txt This what you're looking for? -Henk
  15. That's just the ActiveX component that needs to be installed for Windows Update... it's not the actuall Windows Update Client.
