  1. Why not just add a password and remove it when done? echo password | net user Administrator * runasspc /user:"administrator" /password:"password" /program:"wpi.cmd" echo | net user Administrator * That sets Administrator password to "password" Then removes it again. All completely automatically. I couldn't get it to work, but you can set and remove a password and see if that works.
  2. Is there a list or program like WUD to download Windows 7 updates I can slip(stream) into the ISO?
  3. A few more votes since yesterday, let's keep them rolling in.

  6. Well, you should see the name of the wallpaper in the i386 folder like this: bliss.JP_ That's a compressed version of the file. (open it with WinRAR or 7z) Name your image bliss.jpg (or w/e image you want to replace) then use makecab.exe on it and it will turn into bliss.jp_ (once again, or the name of the picture). Now replace the old bliss.jp_ with the new bliss.jp_ and it should work when you install it.
  7. Alcohol won't put the bootable files in the CD. You need to make it with nLite so it has the bootsector included. Then it should work.
  8. I'm making a new autorun menu for my XP cd and I need a bit of help. I'm using AutoPlay Media Studio 7. Here's what I need help with. Shortcut to: Install Windows XP Install Optional windows components Set up Remote Desktop Connection Setup a home or small office network Transfer files and settings View Release notes Check system compatibility automatically And also, how do you create a button leading to another page?

  9. It doesn't have a molex, but it has a 4 pin connector. Rosewill 600 watt PSU. Should only need 400-500 watt of my rig.
  10. Here's my specs: (All at stock clock speeds) MSI K9A Platinum MB (PCIe dual x16) (AMD 580x Chipset) HIS Radeon x1650Pro IceQ Core594/Mem396 Sapphire Radeon x1650Pro Core 594/Mem396 Crossfire Mode Western Digital SATA 320GB AMD Athlon 64 x2 4200+ (2.21GHz) (Dual Core) 2x1GB OCZ Platinum Ram CL5 PC6400 3dMark06 3010 Marks Default Settings. I only get 11FPS(6.5 with CF off) on the Canyon test? Is this normal for these cards? Also, what could I buy in the 100-150(200?) price range as an upgrade? (PCI 2.0 is NOT supported). ATI Chipset please.
  11. I'm looking for the most accurate bandwidth test and also wanted to share my results from various websites. IE8 Beta results will be added "code" underneith.

Firefox 3.0 with some about:config speed tweaks.
  12. Well, I don't have much better to do, so I thought I'd offer a guide on tweaking ViStart to those that like the program, but didn't know they could tweak it and remove links. ViStart can be changed by simply going to the (Program Files\ViStart) directory and editing the resources, settings.xml and rollover. Rollover would be the picture the shows up at the top in the small box when you have selected an item. Make sure the pictures are 64x64. To make the picture show up you'll have to edit Settings.xml Resources contain the pictures that make the background of ViStart. You can change the logoff buttons or even the background color if your any good with photo editting programs. If you want some new ViStart skins, checkout (http://fediafedia.deviantart.com/) many great themes and also some nice skins. Now the important part. The Settings file. You can change a few options by right clicking the ViStart icon in the system tray. If you know programming language it should be easy to understand. Anyway, here's mine, I'll explain what everything means. <menu_options> <strings> <string id="strLogOff" value="Log Off"/> <string id="strSwitchUser" value="Switch User"/> <string id="strShutdown" value="Shutdown"/> <string id="strRestart" value="Restart"/> <string id="strStandBy" value="Stand By"/> <string id="strHibernate" value="Hibernate"/> <string id="strAllPrograms" value="All Programs"/> <string id="strBack" value="Back"/> <string id="strStartSearch" value="Start Search"/> <string id="strAbout" value="About" /> </strings> <variable id="DOCUMENTS" path="HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders\Personal"/> <variable id="PICTURES" path="HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders\My Pictures"/> <variable id="MUSIC" path="HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders\My Music"/> <variable id="VIDEOS" path="HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders\My Video"/> <option name="%USERNAME% Documents" program="explorer" rollover="rollover\userfolder.png"> <arguement value="%DOCUMENTS%"/> </option> <option name="Pictures" program="explorer" rollover="rollover\pictures.png"> <arguement value="%PICTURES%"/> </option> <option name="Music" program="explorer" rollover="rollover\music.png"> <arguement value="%MUSIC%"/> </option> <option name="Videos" program="explorer" rollover="rollover\videos.png"> <arguement value="%VIDEOS%"/> </option> <option name="Search" shell="FindFiles" rollover="rollover\search.png"/> <option name="Computer" program="explorer" rollover="rollover\computer.png"> <arguement value="::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}"/> </option> <option name="Network" program="explorer" rollover="rollover\network.png"> <arguement value="::{208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D}"/> </option> <option name="Connect To" program="rundll32.exe" rollover="rollover\connect.png"> <arguement value="shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL ncpa.cpl"/> </option> <option name="Control Panel" program="control" rollover="rollover\control.png"/> <option name="Run..." shell="FileRun" rollover="rollover\run.png"/> </menu_options> "Option Name" is the text that's displayed on the menu. "Program" is the name of the program to be executed. Anything you can type in the "Run" prompt you can add in these quotes. "Rollover" is the image that's displayed in the top right when you move the mouse over the item or highlight it. "Arguement Name" is where you'd specify switches for a program if a certain program needs it. "Shell" is the shell name of the program I guess? I'm not exactly sure on this. %VARIABLE% are variables defined at the top. %DOCUMENTS% is set as the path to documents which is defined in the registry. This allows a link to documents on any computer even if there in the default location. For the most part, you won't need these unless you plan to configure Settings files for multiple computers. <strings> </strings> Define the options that show up if you hit the expand arrow next to the shutdown button. I'm not sure if you an configure these to support custom options, I haven't gotten that far yet. These also show up on the system tray icon. Just post the questions or suggestions, or tll me if this already exists =) Here's how my final menu looks:

  14. I know you said free, but if you have Microsoft Office installed, you can use Microsoft Picture Management. It has a cropping tool, red eye removal tool, you can change the brightness and color. Its very basic and easy to use for small jobs.
  15. Anyone knwo anymore PE Builders beside the ones listed: UBCD4Win http://www.ubcd4win.com/ Bart PE Builder http://www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/ REATOGO http://reatogo.de/REATOGO.htm Removed - Contains warez (free licensed programs) WinBuilder http://www.winbuilder.net/news.php Correct me if any of these are warez =) For those for don't know, a PE (Preinstalled Environment) Builder is a program for taking a Windows Operating System--commonly Windows XP and Vista--that normally requires a long install, and turning it into an operating system that can be burnt to a CD and then started (booted) directly from the CD, and boot into a usable operating system that doesn't require installation. Typically when these boot, they create a RAM disk, a hard drive sort of partition in the RAM (memory). Once the computer is shut off, the RAM is cleared and nothing happens to the computers hard drive.
  16. I used CDShell to create a bootmenu with a splash screen. I want to add a background image that is displayed behind the options you can select. Is there any way to do this, or any easy to make boot menu, such as grub, that will support this. I don't like EasyBoot I know about that, I just wanted to know if there was a way to display an image behind the txt AFTER the splash screen. Its not possible with CDShell right? Anyone know any alternatives, such as GRUB with guides?
  17. I don't want to do a fresh install, because not only program registration issues, some are from Giveawayoftheday, but also because it takes me almost a month after every fresh install to get my system back to how I like all the settings.
  18. Great sysprep guide. The website also contains more detailed sysprep guides. http://www.vernalex.com/guides/sysprep/general.shtml
  19. I'm getting this error when trying to upgrade: Close Windows installation and contact the device manufacturer for updated driver software for these devices: o IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers: Standard IDE/ESDI Hard Disk Controller I downloaded the Vista chipset drivers?, but don't know what to do with them now. You can't install them since the installer returns a wrong windows version error. How do I get it to upgrade, my motherboard supports Windows Vista and even provided me with a Vista AND XP driver disc. I had a dual boot XP, Vista for a while, but I didn't like having half my apps and settings on each install. I'm thinking about upgrading Windows XP Professional SP3 to Windows Vista Ultimate SP1. What kind of errors might I encounter, any problems, incompatibilities? Here is a basic list of apps and hardware: 2GB PC6400 ATI Raedon 1650Pro (HIS IceQ edition) (Motherboard came with Vista drivers) ASUS DVD-RAM AMD Athlon 4200 x2 Adobe Apps (Reader/Photoshop) AntiVir Personal Premium (Vista Supported Ver) BitDefender 2009 Beta1 (Vista Supported) Acronis True Image Alcohol 52% Daemon Tools/Daemon Script Defraggler DTools Shell Extensions ImgBurn MagicISO PowerISO xplorer2 lite 7zip WinRAR Irfan View MS Office 2007 Auto Gordian Knot (AutoGK) ButtonShop CamStudio CyberDVD DVDDecrypter DVDFlick DVDShrink TNT Screencapture GIMP Handbrake Image Mender ImageBadger Livestation MediaCoder Sony Vegas Stardock Objectdock SUPER Total Audio Converter VLC Ad-Aware 2007 PeerGuardian2 (has a beta vista version) Spyware Blaster SUPERAntiSpyware Spysweeper Zone Alarms Free Firewall Notepad++ MultiSet (unattended windows installs) Glary Utilities GUiPeX nLite SandBoxie Unlocker vLite VMware Player Universal Extractor DemoCreator (screencapture) Will I be able to keep all my settings, reg tweaks, files, etc on an upgrade. Will it mess up some of the app settings? Will be system be fully, or almost fully usable directly after the upgrade?
  20. I found them awhile ago, but the site all the links too http://jdeboeck.msfnhosting.com and http://jdeboeck.msfn.org don't seem to work for me. Anyone have a more updated link? Doesn't anyone have a link to these files?
  21. Gosh said you burnt it wrong. Try using these directions, or nLite. http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/view/web/15/ Just open the source in nLite and select Bootable ISO and select burn on that page.
  22. I've tried Acronis True Image Home, but it doesn't seem to do what I want. You should try Symantec Norton Ghost, that's supposed to be pretty good. I don't think you're going to get a 40GB HD on 1 DVD, maybe 3 or 4.
  23. I want to make a context menu that expands when you click on it like the 7zip menu, or the Open With. . . menu. The only thing I found it the registry were links to dynamic link libraries, not a simple series of reg keys. Does anyone know how to make an expandable context menu without programming background? I want to make one that will offer options for CD Images. I have nearly 10 different programs for handling different things and editting iso, and it would be a cluttered mess to add them directly to the context menu.
  24. Eeeeekkk I feel alone. Am I the only .DLL? I'm a Dynamic Link Library? Test Here
