  1. Thanks for the activation tip & link too. I already know a few ways but that one is very streamlined Side note: I use AHK mostly (the community is so quick and helpful), but both are fabby.
  2. Just tried Windows Unattend CD Creator from http://www.vitaligraf.de/en/?Projects:Wind...reator:Download But when I choose 'Select' for the Source CD, It pops up a window without the choosables... ie: It says select windows disk etc or directory, but there are only grey contents (no words etc) until the bottom which says 'Make new Folder'. I haven't rebooted, and I have put a whole lot of crap on this machine in the last two weeks while making this boot system, so it's probably something 'special' just for me, but if you've had this too, let me know!
  3. Hey Engjcowi, Thanks for your response and tips... I also have probs with the screen res, so I'll try that out! I've just spent a few days beating apps (grumble gripe) into shape for WPI which is generally working quite well. OTOH, I setup NLite with a genuine CD-Key again & XP activation is no longer being bastardicle I usually use a possibly dodgy key (I can't remember where I got it from) on the build disk instead of 'my ones' so I don't have probs by accidentally leaving it on someone elses machine I build. Whether I typed it wrong in the prior test, or have pulled out some patches or apps from the NLite that made the difference I don't know. Cheers!
  4. No joy there... I'll imagine it must be an issue with my source CD as others don't see seem to have the same probs. Thanks for your helps!
  5. I can't find the download. Has it been removed, or do I need to see an eyeologist??
  6. Yar... Nevermind this post, it was a minor mod of the script, but unsuitable for a clean install!
  7. Thanks for your reply. I'll try this out over the next few days and post an update.
  8. As in Motherboard OEM (Purchased with a non-branded PC)
  9. Hi Folks, I'm having some serious difficulty getting a fully automated installation working due to immediate XP Activation requests. I am creating the build from what I'm pretty sure is a genuine OEM XP SP2 Cd (It's an old copy) & slipstreaming SP3 with NLite(And a whole lot of patches and applications). The key is genuine. Issues: 1. No key a) The installation asks me for one before getting to the desktop login (both with & skipping OOBE). 2. With Key & Normal OOBE a) Installation asks for display settings change (regardless of whether I have selected display settings in NLite or not). B) I get to the login screen, enter the password, wait a while, hear the login sound, but before the login screen (welcome) disappears and the desktop process starts, I receive the following: 'This copy of windows must be activated before you can log on...' 3. With Key, Skipped OOBE a) Same as 2b (2a is skipped) If I change the CD Key (via the Phone activation option), I can get the 30 day trial happening. NLite config is below. Many thanks for reading!
