  1. Sorry i know this is a bit of an old thread but it relates to my issue.. trying to get knoppix v-4 to run off my AIO dvd. Has latest UBCD (dos) on it and win xp so far. All is working except knoppix. I dont know if i am using a different version of bcdw but when i run bcdw /isolinux/isolinux.bin I get an error saying invalid BCDW command. I have it set up in cdshell menu like this if ($lastKey == key[f1]); then bcdw /ISOLINUX/isolinux.bin I dont know if that matters or not though. I used cdimage like this to make the iso, then used virtual pc to test. E:\>start cdimage.exe -lAIODVD -h -j1 -b\AIO-DVD\BOOT\loader.bin -o -m -yd -k \AIO-DVD E:\AIODVD.iso Sounds like a syntax error or something.. anyone have any suggestions? EDIT: Very sorry everyone, I did do a search in the forum, nothing came up... however IF I had spelt BCDW correctly I would have found a post stating bcdw v 2 has different syntax... if ($lastKey == key[f1]); then bcdw boot /ISOLINUX/isolinux.bin again sorry for the silly post :/
  2. Thank you!!! I have been looking all over to find out how to get alcohol 120 to stop bringing up the "found new hardware wizard" . If in install alcohol from a batch file under winnt.sif, seems to work great, but if i use RunOnceEx.cmd from cmdlines.txt It stops and brings up that wizaed, if i cancel it all is ok, i install daemon tools as well so i dont need the virtual drive from alcohol. Thanks again!!!
  3. I use convert if i have to...works good for me.

  6. Ahha! found it... ;Disable Windows File Protection [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWinlogonAdd] "SFCDisable"=dword:FFFFFF9D Thats the only reg file i found though. not even sure if i should use SFC
  7. My unattend xp install runs great until one day i decide to run system file checker. I put my i386 dir in $OEM$\$1 so it would be copied to my C:\ after the install then i added gosh's info to a reg file Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup] "SourcePath"="%systemroot%" "ServicePackSourcePath"="%systemroot%" But when ever i run SFC it cant find the folder and keeps prompting for the cd. Shouldnt SFC be able to get the files from the i386 dir? Thanks
  8. Thanks i think vmware just takes longer to load explorer.
  9. Trying that right now.. Does it make .msi packages ?? Thanks
  10. Looks ok to me, but i'm by no means the one to ask...but as far as the wasteing a dvd I use VMware or virtual pc and cdimage to make the iso file, then mount with daemon tools, that way i can test my images and if they really die on me, oh well nothing wasted start cdimage.exe -lAIODVD2 -b\AIO-DVD2\BOOT\loader.bin -h -n -o -m \AIO-DVD2 E:\AIODVD2.iso The "-o" switch (optimize) i love i have 1 gig of files compressed down to 672 megs....**** nice! BTW: welcome to the forum, i dont think i have closed the page since i found it.
  11. never even though of that.. What would the syntax be to extract once its place in $OEM$\$1\install\applications or would i set up the extraction location from with in winrar? IE: %programfiles%\trillian Thanks
  12. I found that trillian doesnt use any registry keys except to uninstall What i'm trying to do is copy The trillian driectory i put in $OEM$\$1\install\applications to my program files directory then make a shortcut to put on all users desktop.

Nothing in there for making a shortcut yet, just trying to get the directory copied over.
  13. I think it may have something to do with vmware. I just threw the .cmd file into my startup folder and restarted, and it worked the way its supposed to. Although I dont know if that is really the same..
  14. hmmm same thing happened Shutdown started, then the dos window colsed...then shutdown aborted. Could this have something to do with me using vmare? Or is there something wrong with my file?
