  1. Bootable Windows Embedded

    Just rebuilt using your paramaters and setup starts however my answerfile fails...better start de-bugging the answer file. Thanks again for your help!
  2. Bootable Windows Embedded

    Thanks for the detailed reply Shame about it not being just straight forward to add some files :-\ Hopefully I'll get some time in the future to play about with it a bit more!
  3. Bootable Windows Embedded

    @jaclaz thanks for the reply, I'm glad it's not just me that is having issues. I'm happy to use a tool which will save my ISO rather than extract the boot file, however I get the exact same thing (screen shot above) where you get command prompt however setup doesn't start. If you run dir in the setup folder you can run some of the other utilities, just not setup.exe, it seems very strange!
  4. Bootable Windows Embedded

    From the start... I downloaded this ISO; https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=11196 and trialed it on a virtual box VM, that ISO works fine. I've then used various tools to extract the boot loader from that ISO, checked the MD5 hashes each tool extracts the same boot file. Once the iso has been built and I start the VM all I get is this; I've found some tools which will allow me to add my unattended file to the iso and save, the ISO then boots up fine, however the setup process won't launch; https://i.imgur.com/KFktGSe.png [/img] I have no idea why it's not working :-\
  5. Bootable Windows Embedded

    I don't even get the windows xp boot screen so it's not an issue with unattended file. I'll post some pictures/videos on Monday when I'm back at work.
  6. Bootable Windows Embedded

    I've used a few programs to extract and the MD5 hashes always come back the same. I've tried a couple of utilities where I've added my answer file to the image and saved, the ISO works for booting but it seems to corrupt the install and I can't run the setup files.

    Hi Jaclaz, cd.img is 2,048 bytes
  8. Bootable Windows Embedded

    I have downloaded the Windows Pos 2009 Embedded trial CD and gone through the installation fine. I've taken a copy of the Microsoft sample unattended file and I'm trying to make a new ISO with the embedded file, however I can't for the life of me work out how to build a new bootable ISO. I've use WinISO to extract the boot image, and I'm using imgburn (image attached). Where am I going wrong? Cheers Swain90
  9. This Microsoft link https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/558124 may help you if you want to get the S/N, not quite sure you'd be able to incorporate it into the AutoUnattend.xml however nothing wrong with using PowerShell to rename the computer name?
  10. Hi All, Having a bit of a strange issue. I'm using the RunOnceEX method to install some applications, however the title of the RunOnceEx box is only getting set once. So the first time I use ROEx it sets the title correctly but then the two times after this the title bar just says Windows Update. I am setting the title key but for some reason it doesn't change the title bar? Anyone have any ideas? Cheers Swain90

  13. I was hoping it would fill up the rest of the drive space the HDD is 25GB, 200mb for System, 20GB for Windows Install and i was wanting the 3rd Partition to use the remaining of the drive Edit: I've also tried setting the 3rd Partition to 1GB <Size>1000</Size> and this has made no difference
