  1. You assume correctly. This will only generate the entries for the builtin drivers. You then have to add your own lines.

    Just generate the entries once, then add your lines. You get a clue on what to add when looking into the txtsetup.oem files that came with your massstorage drivers.

    There is also an official howto in file ref.chm in your sysprep folder.

  2. Just to understand this right: To support USB Floppy drivers for F6 function, you don't have to change anything on the CD but in txtsetup.oem on the floppy? :wacko:

    I wonder because windows setup is never told to load any usb floppy drivers? Or is USB support already enabled by default and just has to be "used"? My USB floppy drive LED never lights up when using F6 so how would changing txtsetup.oem make any difference?

  3. @Bezalel: The ASUS OEMBIOS Files on your share are corrupt. At least oemscan says that. I already double-checked my checksums with yours and they match, so there must be something wrong with the files on your share.

    Does anyone have correct ASUS_FLASH files?

    The files I have have a valid MS signature Pleas check your SHA1 checksums for verification.

    CAT 8e1fae9079ddb07f18d2d8f73cef4b7f44c90d39

    Sorry, my fault. My files match the checksums. I tried it with an ASUS board and because oemscan matched the OEMBIOS files for ASUS, I thought it should work. It is a single board, not an ASUS PC. Any way to modify my DMI table so that Windows recognizes the OEMBIOS files?

  4. II. Making changes to the OOBEinfo.ini file

    OEM pre-activation can be preserved if changes are made to the OOBEinfo.ini file by ensuring that the %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\oobe\oobeinfo.ini file contains the information shown below but substituting the appropriate product key.

    If the above is true, would'nt one just need to add this file, along with the OEMBIOS files, inside each manufacturer's folder, enter the correct keys for each, and let oemscan copy over the oobeinfo.ini which would'nt require any physical key changes? Or have i totally got this confused ?

    Does oemscan copy over anything you place inside the folders to system32 or will it only look for the four oembios files?

    You' re right, this works. Thats the method I used all the time, BTW. Of course this needs the Windows Welcome page to be displayed and used so not 100% unattended automation. But I like it to make some individual changes to a system after the whole process, especially for entering the computer name and user name.

  5. @Bezalel: I am asking about the rapidshare folder because you are also missing some common files. At least "Acer Travelmate" notebooks are sold very well and widely spread but your repository misses the files.

    I have all non-obsolete filesets in my RapidShare folder. I will upload obsolete files upon request (if nobody downloads them, RapidShare will drop the files).

    Ah that explains it, thank you! And also thank you for re-uploading some files :w00t:

  6. Please excuse my bad English, I don' t have always the right words to say what exactly I mean. I don' t want to stress anyone in here! You guys have done GREAT work and I really appreciate it. It' s just not everything that clear to me because I didn' t code these tools here so I just wonder how exactly I have to use them.

    I am working on a universal unattended DVD and only have an IBM ThinkPad machine for OEMBIOS testing and it works for that machine. But I can' t test other vendors so I just have to use the right information.

  7. Guys, I am totally confused now. Do we really need 'Gateway,Gateway,Gateway,Gateway...etc' in oemscan.ini? I mean:





    Or is it enough to do a





    @Bezalel: I am asking about the rapidshare folder because you are also missing some common files. At least "Acer Travelmate" notebooks are sold very well and widely spread but your repository misses the files.

  8. OK We have bezalel' s rapidshare repository and Freestyler' s list of Strings (and missing files therefore). Could we establish a place where we can get everything together? I mean the files (including oemlogos), SLP Strings and Product-Keys? That would be great. Since bezalel is already a rapidshare user it would make sense to just complete his repository. :thumbup

    What do you think? :w00t:

    I also have another question: Why are there so many comma separated, same entries in the SLP Strings list? I mean, why is it 'Gateway,Gateway,Gateway...etc'? Or why 'AcerSystem ,AcerSystem' (whitespace)?

    OEMSCAN does only need one of these, nor? At least in the example ini.

  9. GREAT Tool, really!

    Could you make it so that one can add additional files to the specific ini entry? For example for the oemlogo.bmp etc.

    Also would be nice if the program could reply with return codes and a parameter for "do nothing but return code". This way one would know, if there has been a match and matched to what but don' t copy anything for the moment. :w00t:

    Or make it open-source :thumbup

  10. Hi everyone,

    I have just repaired an Acer PC from a customer. The PC was correctly activated but it had some corrupted system files and was giving strange errors (God, why does Acer STILL use FAT32 in the 21st century???)

    Perhaps because it' s a LOT faster compared to NTFS. Or they just forgot to implement the conversion after sysprepping ^^

  11. This just came into my mind: What about product keys?!?

    Can you use just one OEM key for all manufacturers or do I have to somehow find out each manufacturers master key?

    I wonder because WGA also checks the product key and it would be easy for Microsoft, to have a list of master keys matching only to appropriate manufacturer.

    Is there a master key list or is this completely unnecessary?

  12. Replacing the oembios files in the source won't make WFP use your replacement files (somehow it knows that the replacement files aren't origional) it only prevents WFP from finding the origional files to restore.

    You' re right. But I don' t really care about WFP because I also use patched uxtheme.dll, tcpip.sys and legitcheckcontrol.dll (all selectable within installer)...
