  1. You shouldn't slipstream SP2 over a slipstreamed SP1. Get the original XP CD (with no SP's or other hotfixes integrated) and slipstream SP2 into that installation. DirectX 9.0c is included with SP2, and is probably at least as current as whatever you've integrated in the past.
  2. Update...I did not do the install previously outlined. After thinking about it, I decided to integrate WMP10 into the install directly first, then add the updated files. I'll let you know the result when I'm done. (May not be tonight - I'm an old fart!)
  3. OK...here's one for you all... I've tested 1.0.3 on XP Home, works fine. No framedyn.dll errors, as I had been getting in the past. Now, I want to try to do this...I want to add WMP10 at the ~13 minute stage, from svcpack.inf, AND integrate the correct WMP10 version of the KB887078 hotfix into the installation. I have downloaded both the WMP 9 and the WMP 10 hotfixes from MS, and have looked into the RVM 1.0.3 cab folder. Only two files from the WMP9 version of the hotfix have made it to the update pack. In order to integrate the WMP10 files, do I just replace the two files with the WMP10 versions and make the entry corrections in RVMUpPck.inf? Of course, in order for this to work, WMP10 would already have to be installed prior to running the RVM updates, is there some place where I can specify to run the RVM updates AFTER installing WMP10? I'm off to do a test with my testing hard drive, I'll let you know the results when done.
  4. Quick question - if I'm using WMP10 instead of WMP9, will installing the KB887078 hotfix mess up WMP10? My guess is no, since svcpack.inf runs at the ~13 minute mark of setup, and I'm currently installing WMP10 in RunOnceEx. Is my assumption correct? However, what if I were to alter my setup to install WMP10 at the ~13 minute mark - would this cause a problem? (Maybe I'll just have to test this out this weekend if all else fails.)
  5. You have some unneeded slashes before %systemdrive%. Try it this way: REG ADD %KEY%\050 /VE /D ".NET Framework v1.1 SP1" /f REG ADD %KEY%\050 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\NetFramework\netfxsp1.exe\" /f REG ADD %KEY%\065 /VE /D "Sun Java VM 1.5.0" /f REG ADD %KEY%\065 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\SunJava\jre5.exe\" /f Hope this helps.
  6. edmoncu - Last night I tested out a CD with RyanVM's pack integrated first, then integrated the KB834707 hotfix second. It worked fine but does add about four megabytes to the CD doing it that way.
  7. can anyone confirm this? I can confirm it, using nve21221.exe there is no screen popping up after the install asking to confirm file associations. They are all enabled by default now. I don't know if this will change as of Monday when Nero 6.6 and NVE 3.0 are released.
  8. You could just xcopy the folder. This command works for me: xcopy /E /Y /Q "D:\SpecialDrivers\*.*" "C:\SpecialDrivers\*.*"
  9. Pebbles - thanks for the info, I hadn't looked in the $OEM$ directory because I'm doing this for a friend and didn't want to spend a lot of time on it...problem is, now that I'm curious, I will be spending the time anyway! I'll look into it when I get home tonight.
  10. Thanks, RyanVM. BTW, your Post-SP2 Installation Pack rocks! Keep up the good work.
  11. I have a Dell OEM gold XP Pro installation CD, which for some reason after slipstreaming it to SP2 still has MS Java VM on it. I know how to uninstall it after installation is complete, but is it possible to use the [Components] portion of winnt.sif to not even install it in the first place? (Would it be as simple as java=off ?) I searched through old posts to no avail. Thanks in advance for any help.
  12. It's definitely possible to slipstream SP2 into the CD, but not as it came to you. I wanted to slipstream SP2 into a new Dell OEM CD with SP1a for Home Edition. Most likely, the disk will include pre-SP2 hotfixes which you will need to delete and clean out from the I386 folder. (If you try to slipstream SP2 into the CD as it is, the installation program will not allow you to do it.) Just follow the rules from the old pre-SP2 unattended guide in reverse (delete reference to updates in svcpack.inf, delete reference to updates in dosnet.inf, delete the files from the installation CD, and clean out whatever else makes the Windows installation install the updates). As far as most of the other trash that Dell puts on new computers, the stuff is actually not on the Windows reinstallation CD, but on other CD's that come with the computer. AOL isn't on the computer as far as I could tell; I could be wrong, however. An interesting side note to the Dell OEM CD's I've seen (this includes a Gold version of Professional from 2001 and the aforementioned SP1a version of Home Edition) - Dell creates a winnt.sif file on the CD, and prepopulates the Product Key in the winnt.sif file. When you do a fresh installation, you do not need to enter the product key OR activate the installation. It appears like the same product key is used for any computer coming from Dell with that version of Windows installed (every computer with Gold version of Professional has the same product key actually on the computer), from what I've seen through the computers I've worked on. Does that mean that Dell OEM CD's are actually volume license key CD's?
  13. Long time lurker, first time poster. I've successfully created my unattended installation CD of XP Pro w/ SP2, Nero, Office, and about ten other programs. Now, with the release of Windows Media Player 10, I would prefer to set up my unattended install so that WMP 9 is not installed at all, and WMP 10 is installed during the post-XP installation routine I've created. I've searched here, and all over the place, and here's my main question: Is it possible to use some sort of switch in the [Components] section of winnt.sif to shut off the installation of WMP 9 in SP2? All the Microsoft documentation says is that you can use "WMPOCM=Off" to disable access to WMP 9. However, I suspect that there are some switches not publicized by MS (msmsgs=off comes to mind). I have tried wmp=off, wmp9=off, and wmplayer=off, and WMP 9 still installs. Space is not an issue, so I've never used nLite or any other programs to lighten the load. If there is a switch to use to prevent the installation of WMP 9 in SP2, please let me know...Thanks in advance!
