  1. is it possible to automate the installation of the inf files and setup_wm afterwards? so that the installation can be integrated in an unattended setup!
  2. first of all, thanks for this guide, but will this in any way cause stability problems? because i figure that MS must have had a reason not to allow the installation on w2k3 server...
  3. using this method: http://flyakite.msfnhosting.com/ it is possible to have many boot/install options for one or multiple os'. after following this guide you will have 3 different install options for one OS. but its easily possible to add more. now its also possible to use a different winnt.sif for each install option. you can can now call various batch files in the .sif file. each option uses a different winnt.sif file and therefore different batchfiles to install the software you want. thats how i did it, and it works great hth
  4. i dont know if this has been posted yet but i would need this disabled: "Shutdown: Allow system to be shut down without having to log on" it can normally be enabled/disabled within the group policy editor. under "Computer Configuration/windows settings/security settings/local policies/security options" i figured that there has to be a reg key to disable this and i even found one with regmon: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SeCEdit\Reg Values\MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Policies/System/ShutdownWithoutLogon] "ValueType"=dword:00000004 "DisplayType"=dword:00000000 BUT this one didn't work... any ideas? B)
  5. no it didnt work. i copied the entire i386 folder of the MUI pack in the i368 folder of the XPCD. but after the installation was finished i couldn't choose between the 2 languages. i guess that i have to reference the second language somewhere. its propably just one file i need to edit... anybody?
  6. well, im not a pro in administrating a domain, but *maybe* you need to create a useraccount on your client machine during the installation that has the rights to join clients to a domain?
  7. LOL i guess i should have looked at the content of this CD there are several folders there. one of which is called GER.MUI which propably contains the language i want - and in this folder is another one called "i386" now guess what i did.... .... thats exactly what im trying now
  8. Is there any way that i can slipstream, or somehow integrate a Multilingual User Interface Pack into my unattended xpcd?
  9. its here: http://www.dazdezines.com/simplify-it/Guid...nch_toolbar.reg
  10. @alanoll: that was it! this line caused the problem! one backslash was missing. without it the line looked like this: c:\windowsgrass2.jpg after changing it to this: Wallpaper=%systemroot%\grass2.jpg it worked
  11. thank you very much! : but ill go to bed now its almost 3am here
  12. also, you can use "sleep.exe" (available here: http://unattended.msfn.org/xp/Downloads.htm ) instead of the ping command usage: sleep [timetowait] you will have to copy it into your $OEM$\$$\ folder. or into your windows folder for testing purposes
  13. thx for your help so far. is it possible that the winnt.sif file doesnt support these systemvariables? anyway, here are my reg tweaks: Tweaks.txt
  14. alright, i doubleclicked the .theme file, which opened the "display properties" window. after clicking apply. everthing looked the way its supposed to. heres my .theme file: ; Copyright © Microsoft Corp. 1995-2001 [Theme] ; My Computer [CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\DefaultIcon] DefaultValue=%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe,0 ; My Documents [CLSID\{450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103}\DefaultIcon] DefaultValue=%SystemRoot%\SYSTEM32\mydocs.dll,0 ; My Network Places [CLSID\{208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D}\DefaultIcon] DefaultValue=%SystemRoot%\SYSTEM32\shell32.dll,17 ; Recycle Bin [CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\DefaultIcon] full=%SystemRoot%\SYSTEM32\shell32.dll,32 empty=%SystemRoot%\SYSTEM32\shell32.dll,31 [Control Panel\Colors] ActiveTitle=51 94 168 Background=0 0 64 Hilight=51 94 168 HilightText=255 255 255 TitleText=255 255 255 Window=255 255 255 WindowText=0 0 0 Scrollbar=212 208 200 InactiveTitle=111 161 217 Menu=255 255 255 WindowFrame=0 0 0 MenuText=0 0 0 ActiveBorder=212 208 200 InactiveBorder=212 208 200 AppWorkspace=128 128 128 ButtonFace=235 233 237 ButtonShadow=167 166 170 GrayText=167 166 170 ButtonText=0 0 0 InactiveTitleText=255 255 255 ButtonHilight=255 255 255 ButtonDkShadow=133 135 140 ButtonLight=220 223 228 InfoText=0 0 0 InfoWindow=255 255 225 GradientActiveTitle=112 177 235 GradientInactiveTitle=131 183 227 ButtonAlternateFace=181 181 181 HotTrackingColor=0 0 128 MenuHilight=51 94 168 MenuBar=235 233 237 [Control Panel\Cursors] Arrow= Help= AppStarting= Wait= NWPen= No= SizeNS= SizeWE= Crosshair= IBeam= SizeNWSE= SizeNESW= SizeAll= UpArrow= DefaultValue=Windows-Standard Link= [Control Panel\Desktop] Wallpaper=%systemroot%grass2.jpg TileWallpaper=0 WallpaperStyle=2 Pattern= ScreenSaveActive=0 [Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics] [Metrics] IconMetrics=76 0 0 0 114 0 0 0 75 0 0 0 1.......

[boot] SCRNSAVE.EXE= [MasterThemeSelector] MTSM=DABJDKT ThemeColorBPP=4 [VisualStyles] Path=%WinDir%resources\Themes\Royale\Royale.msstyles ColorStyle=NormalColor Size=NormalSize the path to the theme file is: c:\windows\resources\themes\ to msstyles file: c:\windows\resources\themes\royale\ in winnt.sif it says: "%Systemroot%\Resources\Themes\Royale.Theme" which is: c:\windows\Resources\Themes\Royale.Theme i cant find anything wrong but maybe i miss something, its 2am where i live
  15. DONE! THX now the only thing left is that my custom theme isn't applied automatically. but i really dont understand why, because it works when i do it manually.
  16. first of all thanks for the quick replies. @homiebrah: you could be right. i use bridged networking and the name is already used by another computer on the network! THANKS @johnmallan: the theme seems to be signed. when i doubleclick royale.msstyles it is loaded in "display properties", i can select it, and it works. @mct: the videocard drivers are being copied to the hdd and are referred to in the winnt.sif file under "OemPnPDriversPath". so, this should work right?
  17. Hi everybody! the past few days i have been working on creating my own unattended xpcd, and i ran into a few problems i havent yet been able to solve myself... the first one, that bugs me the most is that this part of my winnt.sif is obviously ignored: [Display] BitsPerPel=32 Xresolution=1024 YResolution=768 [UserData] ComputerName=MYCOMPUTER [Shell] CustomDefaultThemeFile = "%Systemroot%\Resources\Themes\Royale.Theme" after the installation finishes the computername is something totally different (its the companyname with some random numbers and letters appended) the theme i specify isnt applied (though the path is correct) and the resolution stays 640x480. Also Autologon didnt work when a password was set. i solved this by deleting the password. but this is more like a workaround - id really prefer this to work WITH a password. The windows version i use is xp pro with sp2 slipstreamed. and im using vmware to test my image. this is my complete winnt.sif: ;SetupMgrTag [Data] AutoPartition=0 MsDosInitiated="0" UnattendedInstall="Yes" [Unattended] WaitForReboot="No" FileSystem=* UnattendMode=FullUnattended OemSkipEula=Yes OemPreinstall=Yes TargetPath=\WINDOWS UnattendSwitch="yes" DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore OemPnPDriversPath="DRIVERS\006\viasraid;DRIVERS\005\NVIDIA; DRIVERS\007;DRIVERS\008;DRIVERS\009;DRIVERS\010\DVBPCTVSTARS; DRIVERS\010\DVBPCTVSTARS\Install;DRIVERS\011;DRIVERS\011\WIN2K_XP; DRIVERS\011\COMMON" [GuiUnattended] AdminPassword=* EncryptedAdminPassword=No AutoLogon=Yes AutoLogonCount=5 OEMSkipRegional=1 TimeZone=110 OemSkipWelcome=1 [UserData] ProductKey=XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX FullName="name" OrgName="business" ComputerName=MYCOMPUTER [Display] BitsPerPel=32 Xresolution=1024 YResolution=768 [RegionalSettings] LanguageGroup=1 SystemLocale=00000c07 UserLocale=00000c07 InputLocale=0c07:00000407 [Branding] BrandIEUsingUnattended=Yes [URL] Home_Page=www.google.com Search_Page=www.google.com [Proxy] Proxy_Enable=0 Use_Same_Proxy=1 [Identification] JoinWorkgroup=WORKGROUP1 [Networking] InstallDefaultComponents=No [NetAdapters] Adapter1=params.Adapter1 [params.Adapter1] INFID=* [NetClients] MS_MSClient=params.MS_MSClient [NetServices] MS_SERVER=params.MS_SERVER MS_PSched=params.MS_PSched [NetProtocols] MS_TCPIP=params.MS_TCPIP [params.MS_TCPIP] DNS=Yes UseDomainNameDevolution=No EnableLMHosts=Yes AdapterSections=params.MS_TCPIP.Adapter1 [params.MS_TCPIP.Adapter1] SpecificTo=Adapter1 DHCP=Yes WINS=No NetBIOSOptions=0 [GuiRunOnce] %systemdrive%\install\batchfile.cmd [Shell] CustomDefaultThemeFile = "%Systemroot%\Resources\Themes\Royale.Theme" these are the apps im trying to install automatically (everything seems to work fine here) AcrobatReader 6 Ad-Aware Daemon tools 346 Diskeeper 8 dotnet framework DX9b JAVA 1.4.05 NAV2004 (im not registering it during install) Nero 6 Office 2003 pro Opera 7.54 Winrar 3.30 This is my batchfile: ECHO.
