  1. Hi, I'm currently using 2 different Windows Server 2008R2 ISOs to deploy on two different types of machines we have. The reason for this is due to one machine having 4 physical disks (2 of those are in RAID 1, so essentially 3 disks as far as the OS is concerned) and the other just having 1. Both setups have this XML line in them under disk configuration within the AutoUnattend.xml. <WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI> If I removed this XML and then ran the 3 disk configuration AutoUnattend on the PC which has just 1 hard disk, would I still get an error or would setup continue as normal? I'm trying to avoid having 2 separate image files. Cheers, Swain90
  2. Hi All, I encountered an issue with my AutoUnattend.xml file when booting from a USB Stick the other day, this was the error "Setup was unable to create a new system partition". Below is a copy of my script, is there anything in there which could be causing the problem. Note- this has only happened on one machine so far, others have been OK but they're not 100% identical. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <!--This answer file generated by RT Seven Lite-->

  3. 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 :-\
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Hi Jaclaz, cd.img is 2,048 bytes
  7. 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
  8. 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?
  9. 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
  10. MANY THANKS!!!!! It now reads as this and works; <DiskConfiguration> <Disk wcm:action="add"> <CreatePartitions> <CreatePartition wcm:action="add"> <Order>1</Order> <Size>200</Size> <Type>Primary</Type> </CreatePartition> <CreatePartition wcm:action="add"> <Order>2</Order> <Size>20000</Size> <Type>Primary</Type> <Extend>False</Extend> </CreatePartition> <CreatePartition wcm:action="add"> <Order>3</Order> <Type>Primary</Type> <Extend>True</Extend> </CreatePartition> </CreatePartitions> <ModifyPartitions> <ModifyPartition wcm:action="add"> <Active>true</Active> <Format>NTFS</Format> <Label>System</Label> <Order>1</Order> <PartitionID>1</PartitionID> </ModifyPartition> <ModifyPartition wcm:action="add"> <Active>true</Active> <Format>NTFS</Format> <Label>Windows</Label> <Order>2</Order> <PartitionID>2</PartitionID> </ModifyPartition> <ModifyPartition wcm:action="add"> <Format>NTFS</Format> <Label>Backup</Label> <Order>3</Order> <PartitionID>3</PartitionID> </ModifyPartition> </ModifyPartitions> <DiskID>0</DiskID> <WillWipeDisk>true</WillWipeDisk> </Disk> </DiskConfiguration> <ImageInstall> <OSImage> <InstallTo> <DiskID>0</DiskID> <PartitionID>2</PartitionID> </InstallTo> <WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI> </OSImage> </ImageInstall>
  11. 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
  12. Hi I am using part of a unattended xml file for the disk partitions which was kindly shared by negatiiv which looks like this; (this works fine I have no problems using this) <DiskConfiguration> <Disk wcm:action="add"> <CreatePartitions> <CreatePartition wcm:action="add"> <Order>1</Order> <Size>200</Size> <Type>Primary</Type> </CreatePartition> <CreatePartition wcm:action="add"> <Order>2</Order> <Type>Primary</Type> <Extend>true</Extend> </CreatePartition> </CreatePartitions> <ModifyPartitions> <ModifyPartition wcm:action="add"> <Active>true</Active> <Format>NTFS</Format> <Label>System</Label> <Order>1</Order> <PartitionID>1</PartitionID> </ModifyPartition> <ModifyPartition wcm:action="add"> <Format>NTFS</Format> <Label>Windows</Label> <Order>2</Order> <PartitionID>2</PartitionID> </ModifyPartition> </ModifyPartitions> <DiskID>0</DiskID> <WillWipeDisk>true</WillWipeDisk> </Disk> </DiskConfiguration> <ImageInstall> <OSImage> <InstallTo> <DiskID>0</DiskID> <PartitionID>2</PartitionID> </InstallTo> <WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI> </OSImage> </ImageInstall> My issue is that when im trying to add a 3rd partition using the following code it doesn't work and shows the Diskparition UI not sure why ? <DiskConfiguration> <Disk wcm:action="add"> <CreatePartitions> <CreatePartition wcm:action="add"> <Order>1</Order> <Size>200</Size> <Type>Primary</Type> </CreatePartition> <CreatePartition wcm:action="add"> <Order>2</Order> <Size>20000</Size> <Type>Primary</Type> <Extend>true</Extend> </CreatePartition> <CreatePartition wcm:action="add"> <Order>3</Order> <Type>Primary</Type> <Extend>true</Extend> </CreatePartition> </CreatePartitions> <ModifyPartitions> <ModifyPartition wcm:action="add"> <Active>true</Active> <Format>NTFS</Format> <Label>System</Label> <Order>1</Order> <PartitionID>1</PartitionID> </ModifyPartition> <ModifyPartition wcm:action="add"> <Format>NTFS</Format> <Label>Windows</Label> <Order>2</Order> <PartitionID>2</PartitionID> </ModifyPartition> <ModifyPartition wcm:action="add"> <Format>NTFS</Format> <Label>Backup</Label> <Order>3</Order> <PartitionID>3</PartitionID> </ModifyPartition> </ModifyPartitions> <DiskID>0</DiskID> <WillWipeDisk>true</WillWipeDisk> </Disk> </DiskConfiguration> <ImageInstall> <OSImage> <InstallTo> <DiskID>0</DiskID> <PartitionID>2</PartitionID> </InstallTo> <WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI> </OSImage> </ImageInstall> As you can see the only bits I have added are the bits in red not sure why its not working any help would be greatly appriciated! Thanks Swain90
  13. Do you deffo need the driver or are you able to change from AHCI mode to "Compatability/IDE" Mode in the BIOS?
  14. There is no winnt.sif file like I said i've not done anything other than add the $OEM$ folder. If I create winnt.sif and just have ; [unattended] OemPreinstall = Yes then save it in the i386 folder should that work?
