  1. Add VMware Network drivers Failed

    And now we have MDT 2010 and we don't need to add drivers to boot.wim anymore, are we??
  2. Firefox 3.0.6 AdvancedINF Install

    Thanx for this great silent installation. I've been struggling with this one for long time. After some practicing, i've found out that you can configure the browser the way you normally do. After configuring it the way you want, you can see the switches you have to fill in the firefox.cfg just by typing in the address bar: about:config All the settings that you've changed are bold. very nice :-) One thing that did not work for me was the option [Firefox.Install] """%16422%\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"" -silent -setDefaultBrowser" I had to comment it out, because the browser showed me the import wizard, which is of course not what i want. Your script really helped me thanx!! Greetz Djseppie
  3. Remove Tools menu or Synchronize... from explorer

    Did you even found a solution??
  4. Remove "Synchronize..."

    Did you ever found a solution?? I'm having the same problem
  5. I had the same exact problem. I resolved this by reinstalling the adminpak.msi. Then the problem went away. Good luck!
  6. WDS Task Sequencer questions

    Why don't you use WDS for creating partitons?? It's really easy and no hard coding solutions are necessary. This is my script for creating a c-partition of 40GB NTFS and a d-partition filling the rest of the space: <?xml version="1.0" ?> <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend"> <settings pass="windowsPE"> <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Setup" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" processorArchitecture="x86"> <WindowsDeploymentServices> <Login> <WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI> <Credentials> <Username>ris.user</Username> <Domain>your.domain</Domain> <Password>rispassword</Password> </Credentials> </Login> <ImageSelection> <WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI> <InstallImage> <ImageName>XpSP2NL</ImageName> <ImageGroup>Workstation</ImageGroup> <Filename>XpSP2NL.wim</Filename> </InstallImage> <InstallTo> <DiskID>0</DiskID> <PartitionID>1</PartitionID> </InstallTo> </ImageSelection> </WindowsDeploymentServices> ` <DiskConfiguration> <WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI> <Disk> <DiskID>0</DiskID> <WillWipeDisk>true</WillWipeDisk> <CreatePartitions> <CreatePartition> <Order>1</Order> <Type>Primary</Type> <Size>40000</Size> </CreatePartition> <CreatePartition> <Order>2</Order> <Type>Primary</Type> <Extend>true</Extend> </CreatePartition> </CreatePartitions> <ModifyPartitions> <ModifyPartition> <Order>1</Order> <PartitionID>1</PartitionID> <Letter>C</Letter> <Label>SYSTEM</Label> <Format>NTFS</Format> <Active>true</Active> <Extend>false</Extend> </ModifyPartition> <ModifyPartition> <Order>2</Order> <PartitionID>2</PartitionID> <Letter>D</Letter> <Label>DATA</Label> <Format>NTFS</Format> <Extend>false</Extend> </ModifyPartition> </ModifyPartitions> </Disk> </DiskConfiguration> </component> <component name="Microsoft-Windows-International-Core-WinPE" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" processorArchitecture="x86"> </component> </settings> </unattend> I hope this will help!
  7. Open Office 2.4 startup wizard

    Doesn't anyone use Open Office 2.4???
  8. Hello folks, i'm trying to install Open Office 2.4 silent. This works very nice with the command: msiexec /i "c:\temp\software\open office\openofficeorg24.msi" /qb! The problem is that users are presented a Welcome Wizard. I don't want this. I know it has something to do with the file setup.xcu in the user profile. Has anyone got a nice solution for this? It's not a problem to copy this file using a batch file. Thanx in advance

    I solved this myself.. Just give your virtual machine 512mb memory and everything works fine..

  12. Battery out without warning

    I had the same problem, but Vista did fix it with automatic updates. I don't know for sure which update it was, but they were able to solve it. My notebook is a HP NC6000 Good luck!
  13. I've created an unattended installation for several laptops. One type of laptop has a Intel 915gm onboard vga card. There's only one problem that during the driver-install (at 34 minutes) the driver prompts me te install the second adapter. When you click next the driver does correctly install, but i don't want this window to show up. Is there a way to avoid this?? I've tested several versions of drivers for the card without success. The version that i use now is Anyone who solved this problem??
  14. Final resolution: Download thes drivers from Intel: Download And place the following files into this directory on the RIS-server: the new file (from the download) e100b325.inf in the i386 directory. And the e100b325.sys (from your normal driver) also in the i386 directory. go to the RIS server and type: net stop binlsvc net start binlsvc Now it should work! For use in Windows i used these drivers.
