  1. Hi


    I am using Windows 8.1 Update and Windows ADK.

    How do I change the name and description of the volume images stored in a wim file without using the ImageX command?


    In other words, if I should change the name and description of 4 volume images contained in a wim file, as I should do to do this without using the ImageX command?





  2. Hi


    I am using Windows 8.1 Update Enterprise 64 bit and Windows ADK.


    I noticed that, if I select the "Environment of the deployment tools and creations images" and I click on the "Run as Administrator" item of his Pop-Up menu and I mount on a iso image of windows 8.1 Update, when I run the command


    robocopy <Drive_Letter>:\"<Windows_Files_Path>" /e


    to copy all its files in a directory and the command


    dism /Mount-Image /ImageFile:"<Windows_Files_Path>"\install.wim /Index:<Image_Index> /MountDir:"<Mount_Directory_Path>"


    to mount an image volume, this error appears:


    Error: 0xc1510111Not have permission to mount and modify this image.


    However, if I copy these files through the "file explorer" window, the mounting of this volume image is working properly. How come?





  3. Use an Autounattend.xml file for each edition. The only real way to do what you want is to create a custom boot.wim that has a program (or script/batch) that launches first. Then you choose your option and it will launch setup with the appropriate unattend file. See here for reference (this topic uses WinRE to launch setup)


    I thought that, if I insert the ei.cfg file


    in the sources directory in my iso, I could choose the retail edition to install. That's right?

    Instead, how do I create the file Autounattend.xml to insert my two serial numbers that correspond to those of the Core and Professional?

    Inject your serial with dism into each edition

    dism /Image:<path_to_mounted_image> /Set-ProductKey:12345-12345-12345-12345-12345

    Then use sources\ei.cfg to skip serial entering dialog


    The DISM command mentioned above can be applied to each volume image stored in the file install.wim? If so, how do I do this?



  4. Since the Windows Update 8.1 Update (Multiple Editions) MSDN iso includes the retail editions of the Core and Professional, how I should do to change this iso so that, during the installation, allow me to choose which edition to install?


    In addition, I would include in this iso my two serial numbers of installation (one for the Core and the other for the Professional) so that I should not insert any serial number during installation.


    So, what should I do to reach my goal?





  5. Excuse me, but, when I click on "new index", my additional directories disappear and only the default directory of the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Search\CrawlScopeManager\Windows\SystemIndex\DefaultRules keys of the Windows registry are reintroduced. In other words, I might add, permanently, some additional directories to those keys.



  6. Simple, I have not had the answer I wanted.

    Poor little fellow :(, I care for your unfortunate situation, in which you do not get the answers you want, what a pity.

    (the above translates roughly to "The grass "want" only grows in the King's garden")

    Please, you I can write these Icacls commands?

    Yes, you can write them allright, if you LEARN how to.


    Thus, someone can help me to write these commands?



  7. HI

    In this image, I represented the system permissions of the C and D partitions:


    Using the Icacls command of Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, how do I change/add the permissions of the "Authenticated Users" user in the D:\ directory to coincide with those of the C:\ system directory?



  8. HI

    I have the ISO images of Windows XP Pro SP3, Windows 7 32 bit, Windows 7 64 bit, custom Windows 7 32-64 bit and GParted

    How do I make a boot USB stick so that I can choose whether to start the installation of a Windows system or start GParted?

    By chance, there is a complete guide to this?



  9. HI

    Should I create a custom DVD of Windows 7 (all editions) to force the creation of three partitions: a boot partition, a system partition (C ) and a data partition (D) to automatically save the users directories in D:\Users\<Name-user-account>.

    The boot partition must be set to 100MB. Instead, the size of the other two partitions must be set directly by the person who will install Windows 7.

    So, how do I create this DVD?



  10. HI

    I wrote this RemovePending.vbs script used to delete multiple files at the end of a custom installation of Vista SP2 and, then, I inserted, in the SetupComplete.cmd file, the calls to this vbs script. Namely:

    Option Explicit
    Dim objFSO, objReg, objArgs
    Dim objFile, objFolder, objSubFolder
    Dim arrObjects, arrOldObjects, strKill

    Const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002

    Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set objArgs = Wscript.Arguments
    Set objReg = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\root\default:StdRegProv")

    objReg.GetMultiStringValue HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, "SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager", "PendingFileRenameOperations", ArrOldObjects
    If isArray(arrOldObjects) Then strKill = Join(arrOldObjects, vbTab)

    If objArgs.Count = 0 Then
    Wscript.Echo "Script for scheduling files and folders for removal at next boot" & vbCrLf &_
    "Syntax: RemovePending.vbs c:\folder"
    End If

    If objFSO.FolderExists(objArgs(0)) Then
    DeleteFolder objArgs(0)
    ElseIf objFSO.FileExists(objArgs(0)) Then
    Wscript.Echo "Can't find path: " & objArgs(0)
    End If

    arrObjects = Split(strKill, vbTab)
    objReg.SetMultiStringValue HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, "SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager", "PendingFileRenameOperations", ArrObjects
    If Err.number = 0 Then
    Wscript.Echo objArgs(0) & " was scheduled for removal at next boot."
    Wscript.Echo "Could not schedule object for removal" & vbCrLf & "Error: " & Err.Number & " " & Err.Description
    End If

    Private Sub DeleteFolder(strFolder)
    Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder(strFolder)
    For Each objSubFolder In objFolder.SubFolders
    For Each objFile In objFolder.Files
    objFSO.GetFile(objFile).Attributes = 0
    KillObject objFile.Path
    objFSO.GetFolder(strFolder).Attributes = 0
    KillObject strFolder
    End Sub

    Sub KillObject(strObject)
    If Len(strKill) > 0 Then strKill = strKill & vbTab
    strKill = strKill & "\??\" & strObject
    strKill = strKill & vbTab
    End Sub

    and, at the end of the SetupComplete.cmd file, I wrote:

    cscript %windir%\Setup\Scripts\RemovePending.vbs %windir%\Setup\Scripts
    cscript %windir%\Setup\Scripts\RemovePending.vbs %windir%\setupact.log
    cscript %windir%\Setup\Scripts\RemovePending.vbs %windir%\Logs\DPX\setupact.log
    cscript %windir%\Setup\Scripts\RemovePending.vbs %windir%\Panther\setupact.log
    cscript %windir%\Setup\Scripts\RemovePending.vbs %windir%\Panther\UnattendGC\setupact.log
    cscript %windir%\Setup\Scripts\RemovePending.vbs %windir%\setuperr.log
    cscript %windir%\Setup\Scripts\RemovePending.vbs %windir%\Logs\DPX\setuperr.log
    cscript %windir%\Setup\Scripts\RemovePending.vbs %windir%\Panther\setuperr.log
    cscript %windir%\Setup\Scripts\RemovePending.vbs %windir%\Panther\UnattendGC\setuperr.log

    shutdown /r /t 30

    I noticed, however, that some files not are deleted as the %windir%\setupact.log and %windir%\setuperr.log files and the %windir%\Setup\Scripts directory. Why?

    P.S: If, however, having finished the installation, I write one of the following commands (%windir%\Setup\Scripts\RemovePending.vbs %windir%\setupact.log or %windir%\Setup\Scripts\RemovePending.vbs %windir%\setuperr.log or %windir%\Setup\Scripts\RemovePending.vbs %windir%\Setup\Scripts )from the command prompt of the administrator, the next time that I restart Vista, these objects are removed as scheduled.



  11. I noticed, however, that in "System Requirements" section of this page, there is no written "Vista SP2" but only "Vista SP1". Why?



  12. What is the correct syntax for NET USE to do this?

    Use: net use /? to obtain help.

    Please try to be more helpful.

    This is an example of my use of this command:

    net use z: \\server\share Password /user:UserName

    Full documentation here:


    Then, in a LAN without a domain, should I write:

    net use Letter:\\Server\Shared-Directory password-user /user:\\Server\Username

    Instead, in a LAN with domain, should I write:

    net use Letter:\\Server\Shared-Directory password-user /user:Domain-name\Username




  13. HI

    I have a computer with Vista Ultimate SP2 with a shared network folder protected by Login (Username and Password).

    With a CD of Windows PE, inserted in an another computer on the LAN, I would succeed, with a single command, to access the shared network folder placed on another computer.

    So how do I do this?
