  1. remember me? after my last attempt i had to give up I would like to pay for somone to do the following for me:- I can made an unattended XP cd fine by myself and slipstream SP2 and sata drivers however i simply can't get the hang of batch files I would like to pay (yes pay) someone to make the batch files to install the programs i would like to use (about 15 programs i think) INFACT to be more to the point i would like someone to create a zip file containing all the folders, sif and batch files i would require. i would then add the sp2xp cd to the correct directory. I would also like to change the default wallpapers and boot screen if possible? What would be the going rate to do this for me? Would pay via paypal and supply my own serial numbers to the person willing to do this for me
  2. Once again thans for the reply Yes monitor7.inf is in both dosnet and txtsetup i'm going to try another cd incase thats the problem will report back tomorrow
  3. IT WORKS** Thanks to everyone for the help! Altho i do get 1 small error Setup cannot find the file MONITOR7.IN_ I have tested it twice and confirmed the file is on the cd ( I386\MONITOR7.IN_ ) could this be a CRC (yes i'm learning the technical phrases now) Also on a second note could I use Via Raid and Silicon (nforce2) on the same cd? Would i have to select which on manually to install or would XP find the correct one? Actually i have soo many questions i'll write a list
  4. i think it's nearly done new error .. viapdsk.sys could not be found would i be correct in saying i put them in the drivers folder? or should i do this MAKECAB C:\XPCD\$oem$\$1\Drivers\SATA\viapdsk.sys c:\done\viapdsk.SY_ then move to i386? i think i'm actaully learning now
  5. oh yes line 21764 starts PCI\VEN_1106&DEV_4149" = "viapdsk"
  6. Ok done that got this error straight away when i tried to boot from cdrom Line 21764 of the INF file \i386\txtsetup.sif is invalid setup cannot continue. this is the steps i took (1) Moved the driver files :- viasraid.cat VIASRAID.INF viasraid.sys to C:\XPCD\$oem$\$1\Drivers\SATA (2) Added this to the winnt.sif [Unattended] OemPreinstall=Yes OemPnPDriversPath="Drivers\SATA\VIASRAID" (3) Added this to the txtsetup.sif [SourceDisksFiles] viasraid.sys = 1,,,,,,4_,4,1,,,1,4 viapdsk.sys = 1,,,,,,4_,4,1,,,1,4 [HardwareIdsDatabase] PCI\VEN_1106&DEV_4149" = "viapdsk" PCI\VEN_1106&DEV_3149" = "viasraid" [SCSI.load] viasraid = viasraid.sys,4 viapdsk = viapdsk.sys,4 [SCSI] viasraid = "VIA Serial ATA RAID Controller" viasraid = "VIA ATA/ATAPI Host Controller" (4) Created the viasraid.SY_ file using MAKECAB c:\XPCD\$OEM$\$1\DRIVERS\SATA\viasraid.sys c:\done\viasraid.SY_ then moved the viasraid.SY_ to the i386 folder ideas? Cheers
  7. Thanks for the help. I feel i'm getting somewhere now. This is from the TXTsetup.oem [HardwareIds.scsi.VIAPDSK_VT4149_2003IA32]id = "PCI\VEN_1106&DEV_4149","viapdsk" [HardwareIds.scsi.VIAPDSK_VT4149_XP]id = "PCI\VEN_1106&DEV_4149","viapdsk" [HardwareIds.scsi.VIAPDSK_VT4149_2K]id = "PCI\VEN_1106&DEV_4149","viapdsk" [HardwareIds.scsi.VIARAID_VT3149_2003IA32]id = "PCI\VEN_1106&DEV_3149","viasraid" [HardwareIds.scsi.VIARAID_VT3149_XP]id = "PCI\VEN_1106&DEV_3149","viasraid" [HardwareIds.scsi.VIARAID_VT3149_2K]id = "PCI\VEN_1106&DEV_3149","viasraid"Now i am a little confused by the ends of the lines (as i can see other OS's) ie [HardwareIds.scsi.VIARAID_VT3149_2K] is that windows 2000? would i be correct in saying i should only use the ones with XP above? like this [sourceDisksFiles]viasraid.sys = 1,,,,,,4_,4,1,,,1,4 PCI\VEN_1106&DEV_4149","viapdsk"PCI\VEN_1106&DEV_3149","viasraid" [sCSI.load]viasraid = viasraid.sys,4 [sCSI]viasraid = "Via SATARaid Controller"and just incase i have this totally wrong here's the full txtsetup.oem ## format for txtsetup.oem.## General format:## [section]# key = value1,value2,...### The hash ('#') introduces a comment.# Strings with embedded spaces, commas, or hashes should be double-quoted# # This section lists all disks in the disk set.## <description> is a descriptive name for a disk, used when# prompting for the disk# <tagfile> is a file whose presence allows setup to recognize# that the disk is inserted.# <directory> is where the files are located on the disk.# [Disks] d1 = "VIA ATA/ATAPI Host Controller Driver", \VT6420, \PIDE\winxpd2 = "VIA ATA/ATAPI Host Controller Driver", \VT6420, \PIDE\win2000d3 = "VIA ATA/ATAPI Host Controller Driver", \VT6420, \PIDE\winnt40d4 = "VIA Serial ATA RAID Controller Driver ", \VT6420, \SATA\winxpd5 = "VIA Serial ATA RAID Controller Driver ", \VT6420, \SATA\win2000d6 = "VIA Serial ATA RAID Controller Driver ", \VT6420, \SATA\winnt40d7 = "VIA ATA/ATAPI Host Controller Driver", \VT6420, \PIDE\2003ia32d8 = "VIA Serial ATA RAID Controller Driver ", \VT6420, \SATA\2003ia32 # This section lists the default selection for each 'required'# hardware component.

  8. hi [bM]Crusher Thats fantastic m8 I have made my xp cd for the NF7-S but cannot test yet (main PC) i would still like one for the ABIT KV7 (via sata) as thats my test PC now. i have downloaded the drivers from - http://www.abit-usa.com/products/mb/driver...ies=1&model=125 when i look in the file from the download i can see the following files under - Foldername\DriverDisk\SATA\Winxp viasraid.cat VIASRAID.INF viasraid.sys am i correct in doing this .... [sourceDisksFiles]viasraid.sys = 1,,,,,,4_,4,1,,,1,4 [HardwareIdsDatabase]PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3112&SUBSYS_61121095 = "viasraid"PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3112&SUBSYS_611215D9 = "viasraid" -----------------------------------------------------------------------etc etc down to the last line replacing " Si3112r " with "viasraid"----------------------------------------------------------------------- [sCSI.load]viasraid = viasraid.sys,4 [sCSI]viasraid = "Via SATARaid Controller"this is guess work above but i have a good feeling about it (I hope) thanks again
  9. Thats actually a great idea and i may just do that i would still however like to have a cd with the SATA drivers installed (i have built a new PC with SATA only and have no floppy drive) Thanks John
  10. I've been at this for a while now ... still with no success I give up! Thanks to everyone for the replies (they were helpful but i cannot seem to get it to work) I have a request if anyone would be willing to help .... I have spent the past 2 days trying to simply make an unattended CD with sata drivers on it. Finally finished it tonight and it didn't work. Would somone make the folder structure and include the SATA drivers (Abit KV7 via) zip it up and email this to me? i can then add the "winnt.sif" and move the contents of my XP pro SP2 cd accross. Thanks in advance.. John PS my email address is twosenough [at] btinternet [dot] com
  11. Alanoll thanks for the assistance Right now i'm in the process of digging out my drivers and i shall begin extraction. will report back soon
  12. dtmunir thanks for the kind reply I am not trying to use a shortcut. I simply don't understand how to do it.
  13. I have actually read it over and over then i get confused so i start again from the begining but always get stuck when it comes to the bat files. That gets a little more complicated as in what to write, where to put it etc... in all honesty i even started just to copy the bats from the examples page ( http://unattended.msfn.org/xp/examples.htm ) I've also tried to re write the steps in notepad so i would know where i had stopped the previous night but it didn't help (made things worse) As a last ditch attempt to make one i thought i could join the community and ask for a little help there, if i could get some help with the bat files and drivers then told exactly where to put them i think i would be on my way to completing it.
  14. For the past month i have been trying to make my very own unnatended DVD without sucess i may add I would really like to get this working as my 15 year old son insists on breaking my computer! I don't know what he does or why he does it, for example i switched the computer on one day to see a new boot screen with a picture of a toilet on it saying "Windows XP sh*t* edition" although very amusing the PC would not boot the next day. Now i am very compitant on the PC and love the occasional game of UT, CS or TFC but i keep having to format or restore the computer and it takes a few days before i get everything the way i want it again. To the point of this - Would someone be kind enough to talk me through it on msn? or do the bat / cmd files for me? i have slipstreamed SP2 into XP pro so far and can setup the unattended XP install only. I still want to add a few programs and Drivers into it but the bat/cmd just has me lost. My Details 2500 Barton M @ 3200 Abit NF7-S motherboard 512mb twinmos PC3200 Radeon 9800se AIW (with bob) Lots of Storage with SATA and IDE The main Programs i use :- Service Pack 2 Thompson Adsl Modem drivers Sata drivers Radeon GFX Drivers (AIW) AC97 Audio drivers Abit NF7-S Motherboard drivers Nero 6 Ultra Gamers IRC (or any other nice mIRC program) Peergaurdian Kazaa ++ DVD Shrink Winrar Adobe imageready CS 8 Adobe Photoshop CS 8 PowerDVD 5 RealVNC Winamp 5 Steam (this is the new half life) Norton Antivirus 2003 Speenfan (monitors temps etc) Msn messenger 6 Iso buster Daemon tools Office XP (i plan to upgrade to office 2003 when i can afford it) I *think* the only real help i need is the bat/cmd files and where to put them and where to put the drivers and programs. I would also like to try out all the reg tweaks and replace the windows wallpapers and boot screens with my own if thats not too hard? Can anyone help? Regards Old-Man
