    Can't install webcam post vlite

    I would take a guess that Windows Image Acquisition is the culprit, but not sure. atlef.

    VLite - Windows Vista folder

    Do you have the Vista DVD, or is this Acer Recovery Disks? If it is the latter, you need to search the Recovery Disks for a file called install.vim or something with the file/files ending in.wim. These are the files you can use to slipstream to. See this thread for more info. If you do not have these, then you need a Vista DVD. atlef.

    Extending A Partition

    You can try PartedMagic LiveCD to accomplish this. It is free and contains a lot of useful programs included gparted. Just remember to backup your data before you do this, just to be sure you don't lose anything. atlef.

    vLite v1.1.6 beta 2 - SP Slipstream

    If you have the 64bit version, unsigned drivers will fail. It demands WHQL signed drivers. I have read that this can be avoided, but it involves starting windows from the "F8" screen. Ie, hit F8 during startup and something, something. Maybe someone else can explain the procedure. atlef.

    Vista hangs on 1st run

    If you first ONLY slipstream SP1, make the iso, then personalize that image. In other words, this needs to be done in 2 steps. This is how I understand it work, but someone else can maybe confirm this. atlef.
  6. And it seems that Creative did a 180, and will Daniel_K continue. atlef.

    Does Vista ever finish installing?

    So did you go to vLite homepage? It clearly states: atlef.
  8. Just wanted to add that if you only have 64bit vista dvd, you will only have the 64bit version of bootsect,exe so if a 32bit system is installed, you need to get the 32bit to be able to follow this guide. atlef.

    Laptop. What are my options?

    Also worth mentioning, is that many, if not most laptop's need YOU to make the backup DVD/media when you receive it. And as stated above, backup the oem-key. Use the program mentioned in the first post, Activation Backup & Restore (ABR) atlef.

    And I am considering activating it for the first time. atlef.

    vLite on already installed Vista?

    Sorry, maybe I didn't understand the question. Did you want to vLite the manufacturer cd/dvd/restore image, or your already installed Vista? My answer was to the latter. atlef.
