  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 and test (2) additionally, add hotfixes and test (3) finally, add drivers and test Each step here builds upon the one before it. I'm stuck in step 2 right now, but with the abundance of information available, I'm close to getting past this. After I get these (3) working just right, I'll proceed to (4) installing applications via no-touch. Of importance to my method is (2), as I need the hotfixes to all be downloaded and present, and I need an automatic method of installing the hotfixes, and in the correct order. I have seen batch file examples of how to do this, involving qchain.exe at the end, and I will attempt to mimic this method (in this manner, I can quickly rebuild a new source, based on addinig hotfixes to a file that has a list of hotfies, and just increment this list automatically, basedon hotfixes)
  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 getting the updates right, and then finding good methods for internet explorer. Thanks for all of your help!
  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 I knew which update was causing the issue, (and/or if it was the order) but I can't tell that in this case, as I am doing them via batch, how am I to know? EDIT2: So, I just know that certain tasks depend upon IE being present (like WPI), so I kinda need those.
  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 IE7-WindowsXP-KB963027-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:52 PM 15,452,536 IE7-WindowsXP-x86-enu.exe 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 5,687,304 msxml4-KB954430-enu.exe 07/24/2009 12:42 PM 0 updatelist.txt 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 1,264,016 WindowsXP-KB923561-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 1,309,552 WindowsXP-KB938464-v2-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 2,166,832 WindowsXP-KB941569-x86-ENU.EXE 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 528,424 WindowsXP-KB946648-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:52 PM 559,144 WindowsXP-KB950762-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 594,984 WindowsXP-KB950974-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 817,704 WindowsXP-KB951066-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:52 PM 605,224 WindowsXP-KB951376-v2-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:52 PM 1,090,600 WindowsXP-KB951748-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 1,025,064 WindowsXP-KB952004-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 532,520 WindowsXP-KB952954-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 577,576 WindowsXP-KB953155-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 1,248,808 WindowsXP-KB954459-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 606,064 WindowsXP-KB954600-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 926,760 WindowsXP-KB955069-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 4,574,080 WindowsXP-KB956572-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 639,856 WindowsXP-KB956802-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 570,408 WindowsXP-KB956803-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 725,360 WindowsXP-KB957097-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 648,560 WindowsXP-KB958644-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 658,288 WindowsXP-KB958687-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 1,466,768 WindowsXP-KB958690-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 845,712 WindowsXP-KB959426-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 569,712 WindowsXP-KB960225-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 671,088 WindowsXP-KB960803-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 1,043,824 WindowsXP-KB961373-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 3,140,992 WindowsXP-KB967715-x86-ENU.exe 07/23/2009 01:51 PM 7,717,256 WindowsXP-WindowsMedia-KB952069-v2-x86-ENU.exe sorry about the 0 size updatelist.txt that was created when I did the command dir > updatelist.txt ... couldn't be bothered to copy/paste the filenames some other way. I just know that this step is where I brought on my problem (I tried several times with an .iso burned from just before this step, and it goes through unattended like normally.) So, something with how I'm putting the hotfixes on, is getting me. EDIT1: I'll check your signature and see what I can find. EDIT2: I see the list from your link doesn't include Internet Explorer, is that my problem? Thanks!
  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. XPCreate alive?

    I have the same question, LOL.
  9. Unattended Xpcd Setup Script

    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 bundle. Then, the process is "just add media". The same way you can add water to powdered sugar and mix to get koolaid, how come we can't add our media to a "kit" and have an unattended setup? Am I dreaming? I hope this question is not too noobish. Thanks for your help!
  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 the "virtual memory" error: lsass.exe - Not Enough Quote "Not enough virtual memory or paging file quota is available to complete the specified operation." Apparently, this comes from not installing IE7 and/or hotfixes in the correct order (according to the only post that comes close to this issue). How do I "sort" the hotfixes? I was trying the "batch" method, of applying the hotfixes, but apparently, I'm not able to sort the hotfixes? Does someone already have a batch file that does this? or am I left to check the dates, and do my own? Thanks!
