  1. In case you are not aware, you need to rollback to the beginning. Meaning you have to start with a fresh, untouched source each time you run nLite. You can then load your last session.ini and all the items you added before will already be added - ready to integrate. -X- Thanks for the information. I keep a copy of the source on disk (in a separate folder) so I can easily start back over and then rebuild things. I just thought it fitting to build a disk, and test at each step, to see how I was progressing along (as I'm doing the manual method) These are my stages: (1) slipstream service pack
  2. Also, if you have indeed slipstreamed something like WMP 11, there are a bunch more updates not listed here. X, thanks for all of your help. I need to plan out the updates a bit more carefully.
  3. Maelstorm, thanks a lot. The funny thing is that I attempted to use the windows utility, and I told it that I wanted an unattended installation.... You know, that wizard that creates your unattend.txt file for you? ...Imagine my shock when I'm asked to say how the disk is partitioned, when I thought I had already covered that in the wizard. EDIT: This worked awesome, thanks! I now see where I should have read this page more carefully. (It covers the switches that I didn't use.) http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/view/web/19/ Thanks again!
  4. Thanks for my help, I have a few things to work at now. (1) Didn't make sure IE7 was put in before its updates (2) Didn't check to make sure I was putting in IE7 correctly (apparently, there are issues with internet explorer 7, 8, and Windows Media Player, that require "special attention" when attempting to integrate them.) (3) I need to get a better source for an update list than what I'm currently using. (4) I want to use this at work, so using nlite is out of the question as of now. (5) I want to know what I'm doing, and manually is the best way to do that. (6) My next step from here is get
  5. If I didn't state before, thanks for all of your help. I made this based on the script I saw on the unattended.msfn.org for slipstreaming the hotfixes: http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/view/web/23/ TITLE Windows XP SP3 Slipstreamer brought to you by www.MSFN.org CLS @echo off ECHO. ECHO Slipstreaming Windows XP SP3 Updates ECHO Please wait... FOR %%f IN (*.exe) DO "%%f" /Integrate:E:\XPCD ECHO. ECHO Slipstreaming Completed! ECHO. pause EXIT I only changed mine slightly from the original. EDIT: With regards to which version of IE, I don't really care, to tell the truth. I just wish
  6. Sorry, i didn't make sure that I was in the appropriate forum, prior to posting. I noticed this later, but didn't know how to move my thread. I was in this forum, since this is where I saw the "virtual memory" post, and starting making my own thread, from within this very same forum. I was using the post SP3 "critical updates" , as found on the "Windows Update Downloader" website. This is what I was using: 07/23/2009 02:03 PM 257 automate_hotfix_integration.bat 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 792,104 IE7-WindowsXP-KB938127-v2-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 9,183,632 I
  7. I'm trying to install windows unattended, but ...I'm prompted about the parititoning and installation location ...why? How can I get past this screen without having to decide how I want the drive partitioned? I only want one big C drive, one partition ... how can I do this here? Here are the "Data" and "Unattended" sections of my winnt.sif: [Data] AutoPartition=1 MsDosInitiated="0" UnattendedInstall="Yes" [unattended] UnattendMode=FullUnattended OemSkipEula=Yes OemPreinstall=No TargetPath=\WINDOWS
  8. I have the same question, LOL.
  9. Is there an update to this? I know it's late in the game to still be installing Windows XP, but we are still installing XP over here ...
  10. Thanks. I just had an issue with integrating updates that worked, but apparently, the order matters, so I have to rebuild my stuff. (This time, I'm going to re-save my build after each step, so I can do a "roll-back"), and also check for errors. Luckily, I'm just at the "beginner" phase.
  11. Is there such a thing as an "everything staged kit"? The reason I ask is that there is the inherent limitation of making unattended easily available to the masses due to the inability to include the windows media and distribute it. In this case, has anyone decided to get everything together outside of the media, and then you just run a single utility that combines it with your media? (1) driver packs has just about all needed drivers (2) hotfixes/service packs are a well known item, also In this case, how come we can't prestage driver packs, as well as hotfixes and service packs in one big bu
  12. I've been attempting the "manual" process of setting up an unattended disk. I am on "Beginner" I could not find my exact issue, but this is the best explanation of it: Because of this issue: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showto...amp;mode=linear Anyway, when I put the hotfixes on the disk, I used this process: CLS @echo off ECHO. ECHO Slipstreaming Windows XP SP3 Updates ECHO Please wait... FOR %%f IN (*.exe) DO "%%f" /Integrate:E:\XPCD ECHO. ECHO Slipstreaming Completed! ECHO. pause EXIT Of course, I go on and do a few more things, and when it comes time to test the .iso, I get th
