  1. I've searched high and low....

    Typical... i finally post a question and then find the answer.... I believe this was the one that fixed it ; Show Windows classic folders [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\VisualEffects\WebView] "DefaultValue"=dword:00000000
  2. But still cant find an answer to this question.... Unattended install for Windows XP with SP3. Using the HKCU.reg via cmdlines.txt. I'm trying to find the key that configures "Use Windows Classic Folder" for the explorer view instead of the view that "Shows common tasks in folders". This option is found under "Folder Options" General Tab and is at the top in the Tasks section. I've got the key [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced] but unless i've misconfigured the values i cant find the solution here. Can someone put me out of my misery please as i've been searching for the last couple of hours now! Cheers
  3. Boot Windows 7 from VHD - an amazing concept

    This might be a dumb question as ive literally just stumbled across this and asking the first thing that comes to mind.... If you can put Windows 7 on to a VHD and boot from it then its loading on its own without having to be inside an OS to load the VHD, like if you were to use VMWorkstation etc, so presumably multiboot is possible and then have multiple VHD's on your hard drive? Say a WinXP VHD and Win7 VHD and choose which one to boot?
  4. Anyone able to shed some light on this one please?
  5. Hi All, Im having a couple of issues and havent got the time at the moment to spend too long trying to work it out so i was hoping to get some assistance on here. Ive build an unattended disc, all works well, however, i dont want to use the driver pack stuff thats listed on here so i've been getting the drivers for the specific models my disc will be used on as its a corporate environment, the models in use are very specific. I've got a couple of desktop models on there and all is well, I then added drivers for a laptop model and all is also well, until i realised however, that using the disc on a desktop with all the drivers on ended up installing the touchpad "stuff" to the desktop model, so i ended up with a touchpad icon in the system tray down by the clock, this is obviously not required, the files are in the oempnpdrivers path, so i thought would only be used if required, but this has installed anyway. Any ideas? The other thing i wanted to ask about is the Textmode based stuff... I've successfully added in the iastor.sys file for using the Intel AHCI controllers in the textmode part of things and this works fine, however this driver supports multiple hardware platforms. Initially i had specifically entered the model i had but it would be better to have each of the hardware devices this supports in the file. How do i reference this 1 file to support multiple hardware ID's and the "friendly name" that gets associated with it, i tried something that i thought might work but it doesnt appear to, it just references the first entry associated with this system file. All help much appreciated
  6. You have a PM. As i understand it, wallpaper files should be in the Windows folder, this way they will appear in the list for selection when wanting to choose a wallpaper. So put your wallpaper files in $OEM$\$$ This is how mine are and it works
  7. You should be able to write a simple batch file using the variable for the %userprofile%\desktop to get it on there. Just modify this command below using that to grab the source files from the CD. (Oh and you'd need to put a copy of robocopy in your system32 folder inside $OEM$ as it doesnt come with the OS as standard) @ECHO OFF for %%i in (D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) do if exist %%i:\i386 SET cdrom=%%i: robocopy %CDROM%\I386 %windir%\I386 /MIR /V exit
  8. xp without asking

    Nothing will install if there is no partition to install it on to. To just have 1 big partition on your drive you need to add Autopartition=1 in the [DATA] section
  9. All i do is configure the theme on a machine and save it then specify the theme in the WINNT.SIF [shell] CustomDefaultThemeFile = "%WinDir%\Resources\Themes\your theme name here.theme Then copy the related files to $OEM$\$$\resources\themes and it works fine for me.
  10. Symantec AntiVirus Corporate v 10

    For reference i have just found this. The key is located here: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Intel\LANDesk\VirusProtect6\CurrentVersion\PatternManager\Schedule] And all these values represent how it works. Hope that helps people
  11. Symantec AntiVirus Corporate v 10

    Did anyone find out how to change the Schedule Updats part of SAV?
  12. Perfect, thanks for your help. Ive just formatted the disk again and the tool is running now using all my original files, i'll then manually change that line but that looks to be promising
  13. Ok, commenting out that line gets me to the Partition prompt. The hard drive is showing as Disk 0, ID 0, Bus 0 and is first to show The USB Stick is showing as Disk on Disk [MBR] and is below the HDD. The HDD is C: The USB is D: - Shouldnt this be U: or is that a later stage? Selecting the Hard drive then proceeds with copying the files in the text based part. Im going to compile the USB stick again with my original files with that line commented out to see if it then works, i guess changing it to a zero would also have the same effect?
  14. Here are the last 3 screen sequences i get...
  15. I just tried renaming the Migrate.INF file to try your other suggestion above but i get the same issue. The error above is generated directly after it says its checking the C: drive, it doesnt show any partition information.
