  1. Everything went fine for last night's install: <component name="Microsoft-Windows-International-Core" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <InputLocale>0c09:00000409</InputLocale> <SystemLocale>en-AU</SystemLocale> <UILanguage>en-AU</UILanguage> <UILanguageFallback>en-US</UILanguageFallback> <UserLocale>en-AU</UserLocale> </component> except the Date Formats. These, I still have to do manually: yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss Are there any Autounattend.xml settings for these? I went through the WAIK's Help file but didn't see anything. So I guess there can be a registry hack for it.
  2. Thanks. After a bit more googling I found the Input Locale for AU. I don't know if <InputLocale>0c09:00000409</InputLocale> is the same as <InputLocale>en-AU</InputLocale>, anyways: <component name="Microsoft-Windows-International-Core" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <InputLocale>0c09:00000409</InputLocale> <SystemLocale>en-AU</SystemLocale> <UILanguage>en-AU</UILanguage> <UILanguageFallback>en-US</UILanguageFallback> <UserLocale>en-AU</UserLocale> </component> How to customize Date and Time format is still undetermined. Anybody have a clue?
  3. From ISO 3166-1 : http://www.iso.org/iso/english_country_nam...d_code_elements This should cover Location and Language: <InputLocale>en-AU</InputLocale> <SystemLocale>en-AU</SystemLocale> <UILanguage>en-AU</UILanguage> <UserLocale>en-AU</UserLocale>
  4. Hi Guys, Could you please give me some XML examples that customize the date format and Language. Basically I want to have it like this after Windows is finished installing: Thanks, McoreD
  5. Conclusion: I think it should be clear by now that Microsoft has NO interest in splitting system folders this way like they did for Windows XP. I still believe this would have been a great feature to have so that the System Images (Symantec Ghost, Backup Exec etc.) would be considerably lower in size. I am talking of sizes as small as 4 to 5 GiB). Windows 7 introduces a 100 MiB boot partition. Its recovery mechanism is pretty powerful. Unless it is for Data backup, I no longer find it as useful to make system backups anymore. Therefore, the need to have 3 partition has gone down over the time. I am pretty much used to C:\Windows with C:\Program Files and D:\Users now. The C: partition size I keep at 50 GB (~ 48.8 GiB) and D: partition takes up rest of the free space.
  6. spacesurfer, That's great! I am going to try this as well. Do you find it significantly slower or do you experience normal speeds when using Windows 7 this way? Is it good enough to watch movies etc?
  7. Hi, Just an update for v3. Instead of ; Set the RunAs parameters to use local adminstrator account ; Run program as admin ; Reset user's permissions RunAsSet("Administrator", "MIKE-PC", "admin") RunWait("C:\Applications\SIL\FieldWorks\WorldPad.exe") RunAsSet() You will need RunAs("Administrator", "", "admin", 1, "C:\Applications\SIL\FieldWorks\WorldPad.exe") Cheers, McoreD
  8. MAVERICKS CHOICE mate, sucks that not even SP1 version of WAIK allow us to separate ProgramFiles. This is BS!!
  9. I wonder if the new WAIK http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;DisplayLang=en for Vista SP1 lets us have %ProgramFiles% in FolderLocations to have Program Files in a different partition. A while ago this topic was raised under this thread: http://www.msfn.org/board/Unattended-Vista...ons-t81968.html Cheers, McoreD
  10. Any updates for Nero 7 Lite with v7.8.5.0? * information removed at the request of the owner * EDIT by Shark007
  11. True. I think you just proved the difference between Aero and Aero Glass. What I have as Windows Aero is what we call Aero Glass. What you have as Windows Vista Standard is Aero. I don't have that. I only have Windows Aero -- Aero with glassy effect Windows Vista Basic -- Red colored Close button is much smaller - you know this one. Windows Standard -- pretty much Windows XP classic style Windows Classic -- pretty much Windows 98 style What you got is Windows Vista Standard which is Aero without glass.
  12. nuhi, while Talking about presets, a user feedback driven Preset to get Vista to 1 CD would be nice.
  13. I am using SAV 10.0 and it is really terrible I can't use vLite without BSODing. Can you kindly please tell what AV you using? Thanks, McoreD
  14. nuhi, I too believe it is the AntiVirus. Got SAV installed in both Server 2003 and Vista. Tried vLite in a VPC and all worked great.
  15. Identical problem. Tried v0.8 in Windows Server 2003 SP2 RC and Windows Vista and have the same BSOD. I wonder if this is hardware specific.
  16. footswitch, Why did you cross out "you can delete the old Program Files folder!" in 5. After rebooting successfully, you can delete the old Program Files folder! you're ready to go! afterwards?
  17. You can boot from an attended DVD and get up to installation stage where you can see which partitions got which letters.
  18. Very nice Nuhi! Thanks for the share. I just couldn't help noticing the name vLite and been thinking In nLite n was menat for nuhi as far as I know. So from nLite point of view, vLite makes you Vuhi From vLite point of view, nLite means a light version of Nuhi Sorry for my random thoughts.
  19. maxXPsoftm are you saying you pass validation with ProgramFiles in the xml file?
  20. wng_z3r0, things that you should be careful / know about: If you have changed drive letters using Device Manager, they won't be the actual drive letters for Vista when you install Vista by booting DVD. So make sure your F:\ is actually F:\ and P:\ is really P:\ When you install Vista via DVD to a partition, that partition will be C:\ therefore all other partition letters will increment by one character.
  21. They are not kidding with us this time. No ProgramFiles variable for FolderLocations!
  22. Fantastic posts, prognastic. Adding to your guides/advices, I was thinking, having WINDOWS and ProgramFiles in two different partitions and also two different physical drivers, would increase more performance, because you will be effectively doubling the I/O rate? For others who are new to this concept, hope these are good teasers: For MCE users, really useful as well: Very exciting stuff, McoreD
  23. That's the exact hassle, we are trying to prevent. Any modern coded application will attempt to default save documents to My Documents. Even if you have relocated My Documents path, you still have Favorites, Music and Pictures to relocate. My current Windows + Program Files folders are over 20 GiB in Vista, trust me that is going to end up as a BIG image file.
  24. *clap* -- *clap* I couldn't say it better prognostic. Same here. It is a serious enough issue as well for me not to install Vista. I don't want to end up with 20 GiB Ghost images. A guide explaining WHY seperating partitions will be quite cool. In Linux we can mount /home to a different partition which is possible from the installer itself. Microsoft should offer us support like that. This whole thing is not quite common among many because winnt.sif is quite uncommon among the average Joe. I was starting to write the benefits of doing so here: http://wmwiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=Ben...em_Folder_Paths That's just a start. But if we can the public's mind open to this, Microsoft will hopefully offer support in the future.
