  1. its cool as hey u should try, if may not already know, ghosting the harddrive. Well its really called re-imaging the hard drive. Imagine u get a copy a every thing on ur c drive (back up the whole partition) so then u have a perfect configured backup of your xp installed and ur settings. Its like a around 5-10 gi file but when ur OS gets messy u can just flash ur backup copy over it and be back to its perfect state. only takes less than 10 minutes anyhow u may know of it (kinda related to nLite)-similar area of topic
  2. that would be awesome. like maybe hav a random guessing string for all blanks fields and hav like a just totally lottery XP setup where who knows what you''ll get. "Microsoft Mystery XP" - for all non developers, all non users, and only for losers Be init 2 neva winit
  3. it worked well for those interested. and 5eraph SP2 update pack, for anyone with x64 systems, i'd recommend.
  4. Thanks again X. Yeah found a .NET addon. Worked well Its odd cos id figure u would need version 1 & 1.1 before version 2, but this addon goes from 2.0 to 3.5 I dont see many 1.0 addons around or 1.1 Such a relief though to conquer it. Cheers for help along the way. On this post topic here are some useful runonce commands... md "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Security" md "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Optimizers" md "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Hardware" md "C:\Program Files\Utilities" md "C:\Program Files\Secu
  5. thanks Kelsenellenelvian, ur contribution has certainly enhanced my skills as a nLite developer especially where removing final few annoying questions after install is complete being a simpleton means not knowing what to do. But now i feel 10 fold evolved, advanced, and ready to direct any new simpletons to areas of sheer complexity that you and i both now comprehend. Cheers The disc made is a version that will not be validated by microsoft. So hence in the $OEM$ folder i place on the desktop the "Microsoft Key Update Tool" and running a batch file saying u must enter ur own key using Microsof
  6. http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?...sc&start=50 any problems using this one ?
  7. hmmm actually i think ive found .NET... http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?...sc&start=50 i aint tried it yet but best looking solution (if interested)
  8. Thanks X That should solve .NET 2.0 (which is 1.1 really yeah?) So with this do i still need to install .NET 1.0 original version?
  9. or here mate.. http://www.wincert.net/forum/index.php?/to...enu-true-addon/ took me 5 days to find grrr, but happy to help, cos we seem at similar stages. it worked fine. I integrated all the non IE hotfixes 1st. Then made a new XP folder (copy just incase failure, ensuring i still have my workable XP) and integrated this addon with after the IE8 updates after it. Worked no problimo If u find an easy .NET pack addon let me know cos thats the next challenge....so much stress Hey u should check out "Xpise" man, it makes all XP themes look killa. But in the install process use advanced, and unti
  10. hey ponch, interesting with XP home. I managed to tick OOBE lol and works great. Its odd because although just having the default admin account only, im still asked to enter a user name and organisation string. Like what the hell are those details being assigned to if theres only the admin account. I left this blank in nLite Config because friends may use my nLite XP disk, so i no want it configured just to my name. If wasnt for this question (name & org), id have a unattended install start to finish. If only the default admin account exists, where does the name & org details get assig
  11. johnhc i see ur trying to help but is it helpful when u just throw me to a post the size of a thesis full of advanced technological jargon. Why waste the time to even bother directing. I appreciate the effort made but im responding democratically and sending a beginner to the deep end of a pool thats not even for x86 systems is just weird. Others will look at this post too and all ur saying is go far away to here and get even more confused. When all u could have done is said... benno put ur batch in this folder(#####) and run it from here... (##### via a command like this - #######) thats even
  12. It is truly a battle to conquuer the integration of .NET into nLite. I have searched everywhere for hours Is there 1 single addon pack that will simply install all versions during XP install? where is it? Add if its a run once drama, then what needs to be written? So much stress can be removed if the user didnt have to install .NET after XP finishes
  13. OK ive looked everywhere on the topic of how to run a batch file within the install (or after) So lets say ive made a batch file that says (basic).... msg * "Welcome to XP" OR CLEANMGR /sagerun:11 not really relevant on what the batch file will do but >>>>> To get it to run, where do i put it, or run it from? Lets say its called XP.bat maybe i put it in $OEM$/$1/$INSTALL -- Or wheres the best spot to put it? but how do i get XP.bat to run????? Because I'd rather edit a batch file, than edit every single command line added to Runonce Thanx if can help
  14. Brilliant 5eraph, absolutely outstanding. Thankyou for this great contribution. Cheers mate. Star Legend Readers are now much more informed. Good work
  15. Yes thankyou johnhc. That really helps no one. Anyone else willing to not help?
