  1. Hi, I installed Windows 7 Basic initially thinking Home Premium or Ultimate will be too much for the hardware I have, but since then I did a few upgrades on the hardware and think that my PC should be able to support Ultimate. But the problem is, I have no idea how to upgrade. I tried inserting the Windows 7 Disc but get some kind of error about the DVD being older than the current version of Windows 7. As for the online upgrade, I don't have that internet speeds that would be required to go for it. Is it possible to use the Windows 7 Disc to boot up and then install on the same partition of t
  2. Hey, I've been using Windows XP for a couple of years now, and am currently running Windows XP SP3. My PC is used by all the members of my family, each for his own needs. But the problem is that, with so many people using it, it is vulnerable against virus attacks and the likes of it. I've tried securing it, but without any success. I use only two user accounts, one is my own personal one and the other for the rest of the family. But I have Administrator access granted to both the users, since some of my family members use applications which require Administrator access. But this is a bi
  3. Thanks for all the info. I really appreciate it. About the ******* cd, I didn't know it was warez. I came across some topics about it in the forum, so mentioned it here. If I disobeyed the rules in any way, I apologise.
  4. Hey everyone, Long time since I've been around here. It feels good to be back. . I was planning to do this when I first came up over here, but couldn't do it for the lack of time. Anyway, getting to the topic. I was wondering if it is possible to make a multiboot dvd having Windows XP SP3, Windows Vista and one linux distro (Ubuntu would be great). Is there a way to do this, or is this a bit too far-fetched? And on hindsight Hiren's boot cd would also be a welcome addition. Let's hope I am not overdoing it. It's just that I don't find an OS when I need it. This would be a great one
  5. Hi, I am installing a program using AutoIT, but the installation is showing up. How do I make it silent or run it behind the scenes with WPI? Do we need to use switches with the compiled script?
  6. I tried it out on a clean installation of Windows and it works fine. Not sure why it didn't work on the old one. But how can make it go about installing behind the scenes. I am integrating the software with WPI and would like it to install behind the scenes. How do I do it?
  7. Do we need to wait or something for it after compiling?
  8. I'm not sure if it's working properly. I thought it was supposed to install automatically. When I compile the script, I am greeted with the same install window that I get when I open the original file. But I notice a button in the taskbar, and it keeps flashing as X. When I right click on it, I see that it says Script Paused.
  9. Thanks for the script. Does this install silently or do we need to add a switch to make it silent? Can you give me a link to a tutorial of how to run an AutoIT script. I have no idea how it works.
  10. Hi, I have a pretty old office application by the name of Tally. I have uploaded the file to Mediafire at this link http://www.mediafire.com/?jetmpz5ejx1. I wasn't able to find the switch for this and the USSF doesn't find it either. I dunno if it does have a switch. But I need the installation to be automatic and completely silent. Does it need an AutoIT script? If yes, can someone do it for me? I have no idea how it works. The filename is install72.exe.
  11. No luck. I tried it out by uninstalling Nero 8, then again installing it via WPI. I was greeted with the box. The box has only two options. OK and Cancel. If we click OK, it reboots and if we click Cancel it cancels the setup.
  12. Thanks for that. So do I remove the registry entry that I created to register the serial number?
  13. I am using the full thing. I am using only one switch /qn.
  14. Hi, I haven't figured out how to skip the Nero 8 restart box which pops up saying that "A previous program requires a restart, please restart the system to begin Nero 8 installation". I moved it to the top of the order, but then again, it says "A Windows update requires a Windows restart, Please restart the system to begin Nero 8 installation". How do I get rid of the restart box?
  15. Thanks for confirming it. So this should be resolved now.
  16. I talked to him again, and he gave me the links to the driverpacks and the method he used to slipstream them. I tested it out myself, and it does create the OEM folder and not the $OEM$ folder. Here are the links http://www.driverpacks.net/DriverPacks/ and the tutorial to it is http://forum.driverpacks.net/viewtopic.php?id=1449. Apparently the method 1 of slipstreaming creates the $OEM$ folder while the method 2 just creates the OEM folder. Can you confirm on this?
  17. There are no apps in there apart from the upgraded IE 7 and Windows Media Player, plus a Firefox, CCleaner, Java Runtime and a Vista look to it. I'll ask him more about the OEM folder and let you know. The way you are telling me, it seems that he messed up with the drivers. I'll get back later
  18. Thanks for that. I did ask him what the OEM folder was for, and he confirmed that it contains additional drivers. I am not sure, if that makes it warez.
  19. No, no. It is not a warez disc. I was having problems with WPI and my friend tried out a combination of nLite and RyanVM integrator to modify the themes etc so that he could give the Windows XP installation a Vista like look and remove IE6, Windows Media Player and upgrade them. I just don't know why he used the OEM folder for. I got back the modified copy and resumed integrating WPI with it. I liked the look of it and went ahead trying to integrate WPI with it. I still do have the original disc though.
  20. Yes, The folder is without the $$ signs, but I'm not sure if it is trash, It contains 35.3 MB of data, some driver archives and 7zip compressor etc. So if I add the $OEM$ folder to the root directory, it won't overwrite the OEM folder or conflict with it?
  21. It does look like that. But I've not yet copied over the $OEM$ folder, because there is already a folder there by name of OEM. I think the OEM folder is required because it is an unattended copy and deleting it might corrupt the installation.
  22. I'm not sure if I understood the answer. The cmdlines file already contains the command RunWPI.exe. I tried out by copying both the files cmdlines.txt and RunWPI.exe to the already existing OEM folder. But when I installed the OS, WPI didn't run. The already existing OEM folder contains some files compressed files, an xml file and a bin folder. I had to run WPI manually.
  23. Hi, I am trying to integrate WPI with a copy of Windows XP. But the Windows XP already has a folder OEM not $OEM$. How do I go about integrating WPI with this? Do I just copy the files inside $OEM$ to the OEM folder?
  24. Hi, How do I automatically change the theme to one that I install in addons, so that when I boot Windows for the first time, the theme is automatically set to one that I choose? And where can I find a complete theme pack in these forums or somewhere else?
  25. Could you elaborate on the bit about inserting serial numbers using the switches? I want to configure it for WPI.
