  1. Just out of curiousity, for those of us in the Vista Beta program, are we even allowed to post on here? Isn't it technically against the NDA? Just checking since I just want to cover my a$$.
  2. That's funny. I made these keys bootable from IBM hardware, and they work on Dell, HP, Acer, Motion, Toshiba, and Fujitsu among others.
  3. in the deploy.cab, run the setupmgr.exe There a portion to put your registry key it and encypt it, and limit the install of it until X amount of days. Create the unattend.txt and copy the lines for the key and the EncrpytedPass=YES to your existing winnt.sif / unattend.txt
  4. The new one is quite strange, the old one is very possible. Did you try with some alternate tools, like makebootfat or manually like I hint in my tutorial? Also, did you try partitioning the key ? Is it possible that the problem is related to the known 2Gb FAT16 limit. Jaclaz <{POST_SNAPBACK}> yeah tried everything... including partitioning as NTFS (which PE seems to love running in). I have a feeling there might be on board i/o extentions on the actual keys that might be the key to making these puppies bootable. The memorex 2gb key that I bought 2 months prior works absolutely fin
  5. FYI - I did run into 2 keys that won't boot at all. One of them is the new Sandisk Cruzer Mcro (2 Gb, USB2), yeah you can imagine how bummed I was! And a really old Sony Magic Gate (USB1, 128mb). Both failed to boot as well as be able to have the little checkbox option to copy dos system files to it.
  6. FYI - Not sure if you guys are using unattended for installing Tablet 2005 (based off WinXP SP2), but there's a new patch came out today to fix an annoying memory leak for Tablet 2005 only: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...&displaylang=en
  7. I have it called in the cmdlines... It will show up on the first boot, but if you add a domain user to the machine, the quick launch isn't there for the new user. I suspect it's because the key itself is in the current user tree: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Streams\Desktop]
  8. it only works for the administrator account. When I create new users they don't have quick launch enabled. I want to do this for my domain users.
  9. Did quite a bit of searching, and found the reg key to put quicklaunch bar for the current user (in unattended it defaults to the admin), and was wondering if anyone knew how to enable it for all users (ie: if I add a new user to the domain) ;Enable Quicklaunch [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Streams\Desktop] "Default Taskbar"=hex:0c,00,00,00,08,00,00,00,02,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,b0,e2,2b,\ d8,64,57,d0,11,a9,6e,00,c0,4f,d7,05,a2,22,00,1c,00,0a,01,00,00,1a,00,00,00,\ 01,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,4c,00,00,00,01,14,02,00,00,\ 00,00,00,c0,
  10. There's a typo: *** NEW *** KB898461 -› Installs a permanent copy of the Package Installer for Windows version Download -› 477 KB (June 27, 2005) Switches: KB896428.exe /q /n /z Should be KB989461.exe /q /n /z Minor but it'll keep popping up for those who just cut and paste blindly. LOL
  11. did anyone install this yet? Will it royally hose my machine like version 1 did? LOL
  12. Link for the lazy to the malicious software removal tool 1.4 http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...&displaylang=en
  13. BtS, FYI - I started rebuidling a few of the sound drivers myself after hitting the portcls.sys BSOD on build time for a few machines (Dell Lattitude 610, Dell Lattitude 410, and the HP TC1100 tablet). The ADI soundmax is the culprit, and while there's new drivers for them as of March 25th, it requires the following hotfix to be applied: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=892559&SD=tech Essentially this is the "base" portcls.sys file (post SP2) it needs which is NOT included in their driver pack (but SHOULD be). Anyone have access to premire support?
