  1. OK, I did notice the size of the folder is now 2GB, the iso file I created with rt7lite before apply/capture was 1.97GB. I did select max compression.
  2. OK so just to be absolutely sure: - First run RT7Lite with the config files SP1_v2 - Then use ImageX tab Apply, source is [rt7lited win7 folder]\sources\install.wim, destination is an empty folder (lets call it after_apply). - Then use ImageX tab Capture, source is the previous empty folder (after_apply), destination is the [rt7lited win7 folder]\sources\install.wim (overwrite?) - Then run vLite Is this correct?
  3. Hmm same here... doesn't work with the sp1 v2 configs
  4. Hey aviv00, unfortunately for the leaked official build of Win7 incl SP1, method 5 is not working anymore. Using the last session files for RT7Lite and vLite, I am getting an error when vlite is rebuilding the image, same error you see here: Press ok --> finalizes. But I cannot install windows with this image.. too bad seemed to be the best method! EDIT: sorry just saw the new config files for SP1 in your first post!! going to try those right now
  5. Oh ok then I misunderstood the whole point I thought it was necessary to remove winsxs with rtlite first then with vlite too. But now I understand RTLite is only used to remove other components. So for WinSxS removal, you actually don't need rt7lite at all..
  6. Thanks for the quick reply. I used your set in RT7Lite but I did deselect all drivers (to keep them) except for floppy. ---> But.. WinSxS was NOT selected using your set! So I selected it myself... because thats the whole point right? Removing it in RT7Lite first and then in vLite. Now creating an image, I will use this image in vLite to remove WinSxS completely using your set...
  7. Hmm using method 5 (simply doing RT7Lite first, remove all the components you want and then use vLite only to remove WinSxS) would mean a drastic drop in installation size? But what are the side effects? Or should I use RT7Lite to remove winsxs (is that possible?) and then use vlite to do the same? I thought using RT7Lite 2.6.0 would be the best way to remove components first and then use vlite to only remove winsxs. Also, I am currently integrating SP1 in a fresh Win7 dvd (x64) with RT7Lite... anyone tried that and removed winsxs afterwards with vlite? And do I still need to install kb947821?
  8. Yes but then you won't be able to process win7 64bit right? I am running XP 32bit and want to create win7 64bit image without winsxs.
  9. ok but youll need a 64bit os to run GimageX so won't work for me or I have to normally install Win7 first but I don't want that.
  10. Is method 2 still successful method? I have no experience with waik/sysprep or imagex. I have lots of experience with stripping WinXP but none with Win7. Still very happy about WinXP and won't upgrade till win8 (end of 2011?). But I'd like to experiment. Also Win7 has some features (audio) wich make it easier to transport DTS HD via HDMI to my receiver so I might use it on my htpc with xbmc.
  11. thnx, I dont know why but it only happens on some (older) laptops with old Intel 9xx graphics.
  12. Johnny you've made an amazing tool. Respect! I only have the same issue posted here above. I choose offline creation of the installer (silent installer not an addon). Everything is OK but Firefox is installed in Program Files\Firefox instead of Program Files\Mozilla Firefox. I cannot choose the path in your tool... I extracted the created installer, modified the paths in the .inf file, hoping I found them all. I tested by uninstalling firefox, removing the folder and all mozilla folders in the appdata of user accounts, then install again via the modified inf. Seems to have worked. Compressed it and together with Olegs modified 7zSfx (and I also found your config.txt by opening the originally created installer in Notepad), used that to recreate an installer. With Reshacker I stole the icon from the originally created installer and then upx'ed it. I 'll test this later. So I basically did manually took me half an hour... what your tool can do in just a few seconds
  13. I install all my apps at T13 by running and executing runonceex at T13. Everything goes well but now that I updated (it was almost a year ago) my cd with new apps, also the latest FFDShow... there is something wrong. I install ffdshow with the /VERYSILENT /NORESTART switches. Somehow for some reason, the process just halts when it installs ffdshow... nothing happens. Absolutely nothing! But if I wait long enough almost 20 min... the process continues with the next app. Is this problem familiar to anyone? I am using: ffdshow_rev3054_20090804_clsid.exe
  14. All useful solutions are described in this topic: http://forums.techguy.org/windows-nt-2000-...-rebooting.html the one about using a new NTUSER.DAT solved ALL issues I had: quicklaunch disappeared after reboot, the order wasn't correct, the icons I wanted hidden in tray were not hidden. Eventually I created a new useraccount on a different pc that was not installed by my uACD, copied the NTUSER.DAT files from that account to my pc. I had to set all personal settings again (themes and stuff) but it worked. All other solutions didn't work. The solution I am talking about is on page 2 at the bottom by Madescoces. But I suggest reading the whole topic (3 pages).
  15. Why don't you just use the already known method, see the topic about avira 8.. there is a switch
  16. Is there any test or review putting the freeware defraggers against Perfectdisk and Diskeeper?
  17. HUH? why not switch to 98SE? Any pc that runs 95 can run 98SE right? Or even an nLited XP SP3?
  18. I updated my post to integrate a solution to get rid of the annoying ad after every update. But I did NOT test it! I added this command (as a RunProgram command) to the CONFIG.TXT file: cacls "C:\Program Files\Avira\AntiVir PersonalEdition Classic\avnotify.exe" /e /d Everyone Ofcourse anyone can use this command on any pc with Avira installed, anytime, to remove the add. What it does is change the permissons of the avnotify.exe file, wich is responsible for the ads. Source of this trick. check my post: install Avira Antivir silent & remove ad
  19. Super! thanks a lot for your help. I forgot about this topic so I pm'd you about something else..
  20. the page of that site doesn't work unfortunately.
  21. On some computers, it seems impossible for Windows to remember what icons to 'always hide'. The settings for all icons revert back to "hide when inactive" after I reboot the pc. Now I installed a new pc with Windows XP SP3 and I have the problem myself. Is there any registry setting that I can modify? In the Taskbar & Menu start properties, "Hide inactive icons" is checked. And I have set 4 icons to always hide. But after a reboot, they are back again..
  22. Whoa! That's the site I was looking for! But I looked at the progress_dialog_box_code.txt and it is really fake. That Vishal guy has nice tweaks but he doesn't give the right information, in some cases he even gives very wrong info wich can lead to your pc never be able to boot again. Like his Windows 7 boot screen for xp. He has a modified ntoskrnl.exe wich you can use to replace your own ntoskrnl.exe. Then you'll get windows 7 like boot screen. Looks very professional. BUT, if your pc uses ntkrnlpa.exe instead of ntoskrnl.exe, replacing ntoskrnl will have no effect. Renaming his file to ntkrnlpa.exe will lead to infinite boot errors, even Safe Mode won't work. And renaming his file to boot.exe and add it to boot.ini has the same effect if your pc uses ntkrnlpa.exe. So many people have already put this in the comments and still he says it works for every pc and nothing can go wrong. I am really disappointed in that man. Despite some of his nice (but usually already well-known here at msfn forums) tweaks and theme.
  23. Hey, I've send you a pm and you replied on the 16th, I re-downloaded your .Net but the archive is still invalid. I get the error : Can not open file '(location of the file)' as archive
  24. OK so to completely remove that annoying window on XP SP3 with IE7, this should do the trick: @echo off :: disable security warnings reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\0" /v "1806" /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\1" /v "1806" /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\2" /v "1806" /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\3" /v "1806" /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\4" /v "1806" /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\3" /v "CurrentLevel" /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
