  1. Thank you for this script, GreenMachine, Since this script runs at the end of the installation, I would assume that I can test this on my current test machine. The script runs fine, and I observe the changes in the registry. I assume that HKU\DU is the same as [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT in regedit. I also used reg query to check. But when I create a new account to check the result, the changes don't seem to retain. I understand that you use similar scripts in your setup, so, would this only work after a fresh installation from a install CD that includes this script? I appreciate your help, GreenMachine, thank you!
  2. Hello All, What I want to accomplish is that for each new account the following folders are created instantly: Desktop: %SystemDrive%\personal\%UserName%\Desktop Favorites: %SystemDrive%\personal\%UserName%\Favorites My Documents: %SystemDrive%\personal\%UserName%\Documents (example: C:\Personal\<user>\Documents) All the other user shell folders would remain in %UserProfile%\* (example: C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Temp) So, basically, I still want settings in the "\Documents and Settings\<user>\*" structure, but certain folders in a different location. I have tried to change some values in the following key: [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders] but so far it doesn't seem to work like I intend. How would I be able to accomplish this?
  3. Thank you for introducing me to hfslip, PDV. I have been testing this jewel of scripting and I'm very pleased with the results!
  4. Hello All, Today I'm testing the free release of XPcreate 20 august 2005. It looks all promising and well prepared. I collected hotfixes and some other updates, saved them in the correct folders. But while installing from the new created XP home CD, I encountered the following error message in what seems a CMD window of the installer. It said something that sounds like: XPCTF108.exe: The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction. After I clicked OK, the installer continued, but this worries me. What went wrong? === Well, I found the logfile and learned that XPCT108.EXE is a new name for Windows-KB890830-V1.7A-ENU.exe, which was corrupt in my source. And it appears that I can't download a complete version from microsoft.com. I got Windows-KB890830-V1.5-ENU.exe instead. Going to do a new test with this. Anyway, compliments to the developer of this script!
  5. nLite requires dotnet framework 2.0 to be installed first, you can download that from the Microsoft website.
  6. Hello All, With nlite 0.95 I created a lean Windows XP installation and with the information on this site I created a winnt.sif answer file. Some questions remain: When I start winnt32 /unattend:winnt.sif from the hard disk, I can't select the partition to install to, I can only select to delete the current installation on the current partition. When I create a CD from the same file set, I'm able to select which partition, but I still miss the option to (quick) format before copying the files. Also: I still get some popup windows, which require user attention. - "Welcome to the Windows XP Setup Wizard" - "Regional and language settings" I did some search, but failed to find clues yet. Here my winnt.sif file: ;SetupMgrTag [Data] AutoPartition = 0 MsDosInitiated = 0 UnattendedInstall = Yes [Unattended] DriverSigningPolicy = Ignore FileSystem = * KeyboardLayout = US-International OEMPreinstall = Yes OEMPnPDriversPath = Drivers\000_Via;Drivers\001_Realtek;Drivers\002_ATI;Drivers\002_Elements;Drivers\003_TVW_XP;Drivers\004_ActionTec;Drivers\005_Ensoniq;Drivers\006_HP-3322 OEMSkipEula = Yes TargetPath = \WINDOWS UnattendMode = FullUnattended WaitForReboot = No [GuiUnattended] AdminPassword = <> EncryptedAdminPassword = Yes OEMSkipWelcome = Yes OEMSkipRegional = Yes TimeZone = 20 [UserData] ProductKey = <> FullName = <> OrgName = <> ComputerName = <> [Display] BitsPerPel = 32 Xresolution = 1280 YResolution = 1024 Vrefresh = 60 [TapiLocation] CountryCode = 1 Dialing = Tone AreaCode = * [RegionalSettings] LanguageGroup = 1 Language = 00000409 [Identification] JoinWorkgroup = mshome [Networking] InstallDefaultComponents = No [NetAdapters] Adapter1 = params.Adapter1 [params.Adapter1] INFID = * [NetClients] MS_MSClient = params.MS_MSClient [NetServices] MS_SERVER = params.MS_SERVER [NetProtocols] MS_TCPIP = params.MS_TCPIP [params.MS_TCPIP] DNS = No UseDomainNameDevolution = No EnableLMHosts = Yes AdapterSections = params.MS_TCPIP.Adapter1 [params.MS_TCPIP.Adapter1] SpecificTo = Adapter1 DHCP = Yes DNSServerSearchOrder = <> WINS = No NetBIOSOptions = 0 [Components] Clipbook = Off Dialer = Off Hypertrm = Off Inetprint = Off msmsgs = Off msnexplr = Off Pop3Service = Off Pop3Srv = Off WMAccess = Off [Shell] DefaultThemesOff = Yes [Branding] BrandIEUsingUnattended = Yes [URL] Home_Page = * Help_Page = * Search_Page = * [Proxy] Proxy_Enable = 0 Use_Same_Proxy = 0
