    GreenMachine's Complete SP3 SVCPACK.INF

    This IE7 + SP3 is a Microsoft mess again... I've been waisting so much time with this. I tried GreenMachine solution but my installation is rebooting at T-13 so it goes into an infinite loop (restart at T-39) Do I need to install the Rootsupd.exe or it has nothing to do with this?
  3. [EDIT] I must appologize because it's been almost a month since the MSDN release of vista and there is nothing concrete about unattended installation... I don't know if this is the case with all of you but I feel like Vista automation is just to early. There is currently no need for it at work so it may be a while before I dive into it. For now, take a look here: Windows Vista Deployment Step by Step Guide [/EDIT] This topic is a proposition for collaborative work with the community in order to produce a guide to unattended vista installation. The first goal is to get the user up and running with the simplest method around. Later, we will expand to include more advanced techniques. I know the BDD is not completed yet by Microsoft so we have to work with preliminary information.... So go ahead, post your idea and I'll clean it up as it goes... Everyone who contribute will have their name listed as a reference. B)

    What are HTA's capabilities?

    You can write to a XML file without any problem with a HTA. My only concern would be in the WinPE environment...

    CDImage creation Error

    Then you cannot build a file larger than 4GB on this drive. You need to format as NTFS or remove stuff from your DVD so it is below 4GB in size.

    Blueray or HDDVD?

    If I am not mistaken, Blu-Ray is winning this war? I heard that there is only a few company left in the HD-DVD boat so it is only a matter of time before thoses exclusive titles are available to Blu-Ray. Also, there are report in the states that there is 2 Blu-Ray player for 1 HD-Dvd sold to consumers (the PS3 is helping out). Last thing to know, Blu-Ray burner are available for PC since 1 year now. HD-Dvd burner? Yet to be seen...

    Windows Home Server

    I gave one for Christmas to my brother. I used a small business server with Adaptec 1210SA Sata Card to get RAID1 security. This card was a nightmare to install... too many drivers on Adaptec website and none working properly (as they use to do on a Win2K3 Server). This issue is related (I beleive) with the way Windows is now installing thru WinPE. Anyway, I finally managed to install on a EIDE hard drive (must be over 80GB) then installing the RAID Card in Windows Home Server and then using Ghost to clone the EIDE drive to the Raid Array. Pheew. I must say I am too a little dissapointed. First, It is still too complicated for most people to setup (not talking about installing from scratch) this thing. Then there is some interesting features but I was expecting some other stuff in there: PRO: - Stability of Windows 2003 Server - Console Interface Easy to understand - Remote possibilities thru Web Interface - Search Engine Built in - Possibility to add extra plugs-ins? CONS: - Ugly front page for the Website - Website is mostly useless. Must go thru login to see something (why no public stuff available right from main page?) - Website allow you to download you music and pictures files (no slideshow!!! OMFG, no music streaming) - Icon on client always in RED meaning you have something wrong on your network (updates, domain name, WTF) - Strange access problem for a domain integrated laptop you bring home. - Only allow to select a .homeserver.com domain (blocking some options if you don't activate the domain) So I sincerely hope Microsoft or other software makers will boost the features of this server. PRIORITY #1 is a picture slideshow **** it. I don't want to download my picture you moron, I want to show them to other people.

    Multi boot CD

    Yes I saw that and I deleted the redundant topics. I must admin I have a hard time figuring out what this user wants...
  13. WoW, this is a nice little story and you can be part of it! Does somebody here lives in the United Kingdom? Let me know... I'll try to update this post as new elements arise. The events are in chronological order. SUMMARY (if you don't want to read the whole story) With a good timing, a scammer is trying to make me send money with Western Union for an item I already paid to a legitimate seller who has offered me a Second Chance offer after a closed auction. The scammer is waiting for my payment... what do I do next? 27 Decembre 2006 I am the first to bid 250$ on a SAS RAID Controller on eBay. The auction is closing around 00:30 and I'll be there for a last minute bid. The seller states that he has 3 controller to sell in the description of the items so this is a good opportunity even if I don't win the auction (Second Chance Offer). ---------------------------------------------------- 28 Decembre 2006 I'm back home around 01:30 so I've missed the end of the auction and I have fallen in third position BUT guess what! I have a Second Chance offer right in my mail box! The eBay email is real (not a fake) but there is this mention: I'm trying to contact the seller at the Email provided + the eBay member email BUT I always receive a error message from the mail server unable to reach both addresses.Ok, well, I'm tired and still a bit drunk (christmas party again!) so I'm going to sleep and I'll deal with this in the morning... Ok now I'm back from a good sleep... I have a Second Chance Email in my mailbox and this time there is a Buy it Now button so I can purchase the Item (This mail is from the real seller!). I try to pay for the item but I get this message in the PayPal form: So I contact the (real) seller thru eBay.SELLER: "Ill adjust the invoice and send it again." SCAMMER: Now his timming was perfect and I didn't know it was the scammer contacting me.ME: I provided the information to his email address but also to the real seller email address! SELLER: "im going to send you an invoice." AND along with this mail, the quoted message from the scammer along with the information I provided (since I sent the email to BOTH address)!!! He should have noticed something was wrong, I was giving some informations he never asked me! SELLER: Paypal Invoice to me ME: Paying the Invoice ---------------------------------------------------- 29 Decembre 2006 SCAMMER: SCAMMER Fake eBay Email with instructions on how to pay him with Western Union money transfert. Now I am getting nervous because I have no idea what's going on! I have already paid the PayPal Invoice (to the real seller) and now he is asking me to pay again with Western Union? I have no idea if the real seller has a spoofed/hacked account or something like that so I dicided to contact the other 2 guys who have bidded on the item to see how things are going. I managed to contact the winning bidder and he tells me everything is fine and that he has a shipping number already. Ok now the scammer told me the winner has retracted his bid. Now I have some proof that something is wrong. I try to contact the second bidder in the list but eBay is blocking me to send him a email. I then contact the real seller thru eBay and I ask him why he want's me to pay him with Western Union? So the seller is telling me he never asked such thing and we discover the scam! NOW, what should we do? I still have the scammer on the other end expecting a payment from Western Union. I have protected his information for now but I think I have is name and address in the UK.

    Read this before jumping to 64bit Vista

    I don't think there is a choice to be made here, we are already at the 4GB barrier... using 32-bits systems for the next few years will only delay development of the 64-Bit platform

    Read this before jumping to 64bit Vista

    Try to run a 32-bit system with 4GB of ram... what a nightmare. I personnaly think Microsoft should have enforced Vista in the 64-Bits flavor (and maybe one limited 32-bit edition) so software maker would embrace more quickly...

    Critical Hotfixes for Windows Vista

    Thanks for the update... One of our "Big Boss" insisted to get is new computer (a simple Dual Quad Xeon with RAID10 of 15K SAS drives... looks like a virtualization server to me!) with Vista 64-Bits. I must tell you that I have big problem on this computer with USB ports (not to mention Vista trouble + the 64-Bits variant). Upon now, I had previously found KB937187_x64 which somehow kind of solved the problem but it is still shaky... Darn Vista. On some computer, no problemo at all and on others only troubles...
  18. I get KB939683 and KB933360 shown as critical today on my french windows XP SP2 setup...
  19. I think you have to unpack the KB905474 (with WinRAR for example) and you'll get a file named: WGANOT~1.EXE This file can be used with /quiet /norestart /nobackup just like any "regular" hotfixes... I am using the downloaded file, renamed "KB905474.exe". No other changes. - John

    Most obscure bug

    Currently, I am building some "hot" workstations as research workhorses. Those beasts are equiped with 2x Quad Xeon 2.33Ghz (8 processor), 8GB of Ram, a RAID10 of 15K SAS Drive for fast workspace and a RAID5 of 1TB drives for storage, Quad Gigabit NIC, Etc... you get the idea: expensive and no compromise. Currently, I have three of them installed with Vista Ultimate Edition having a trully annoying issue: they don't want to work with USB Storage devices (Flash drives, External drives, etc.). The "fun" part is that they worked for a while but now they don't! Whenever you plug a device it says the driver could not be installed blah, blah, blah. I tried several tricks I found on some forums with people having the same issue but no luck. I found some other stuff I will try but for now this is a real pain in the a**. Thanks Microsoft.

    Multiboot XP 32 bit and 64 bit

    Take a look at this pinned topic: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=58410 Once the modification is done, you can integrate the 64-bt version just like a regular 32-Bit OS
