  1. Oops got that mixed up. I should have known better not to post when I'm tired. There are several components to BLB (like BLB Drive) and client is one of them.
  2. BLB Client is part of the Bit Locker Windows components. The change desktop background is uh, a "feature" of Windows Starter. It forces the user to always have the same BG. MS didn't think Starter uses were worth allowing desktop background changes. I wouldn't delete GP. It's a major part of Windows that allows you to configure many things under the hood. http://www.techrepub...icy-editor/3066 I don't think you need Terminal Services unless you're using a terminal program to log into a network. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remote_Desktop_Services#Terminal_Server
  3. The xml files have the type of component before the name of the components to be removed in the default xml filenames. For example, accessories_notepad.xml or drivers_modems.xml. This should automatically be sorted alphabetically. Also, what doesn't work? What were you doing manually?
  4. Sorry man, I stopped using 7Customizer when I found out it really wasn't going to do what I needed. Wish I could help.
  5. Why are you using it in VirtualBox? I don't remember exactly how it works but isn't VirtualBox supposed to operate off a sandboxed virtual disk? How are you accessing your iso from it?
  6. Are you applying the tweaks to the proper image? Most wim files have multiple versions of Windows 7 on disc. BTW, I read you used a slipstreamed iso, right? Is this one you made yourself or are you using an actual image direct from Microsoft with the service pack natively added in?
  7. Why not just try the updated stand alone tool? http://sourceforge.net/projects/w7cr/ If you need a step by step do it this way. 1. Use 7-zip to extract your wim to a working NTFS partition. 2. run the command tool for W7CR 3. remove the components with the current available XML files 4. Use Windows 7 Toolkit to then capture the directory you used W7CR on as a new wim and compress it and finish up all your customizations with that.
  8. So you made this program yourself to remove additional items? Would you be able to say, make this a stand alone program to simply remove components?
  9. How does your booster work to remove more stuff? Does your booster program function on its own as a removal or do you need to use RT7?
  10. How do I find that? Would it be the files in the windows/system32/config directory?
  11. I kind of knew that much already just wondered if setup referenced any particular files besides unattend and extraction of the wim. Isn't there a file that references what packages are staged for install, installed, and not installed?
  12. Anyone know it? What files it references, how it builds directories, what packages it installs? Where does it get all this info?
  13. Thanks Moonchilde for the suggestion, however I did already have the folders in place and was even copying other shortcuts into those same folders. The good news is that I have figured out the issue. Once the unattended installer finished (and once again didn't copy the shortcuts to the appropriate places) I navigated to the directory using command prompt (C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs) and noticed that the two shortcuts I was trying to move (Windows Media Player.lnk and Desktop Gadget Gallery.lnk) didn't exist, even though they are clearly visible at the top of the start menu, and appear when you navigate to that folder in Explorer. In the command prompt window I looked through the files that were listed and noticed that there were two there that didn't show up in the Start Menu: sidebar.lnk and media center.lnk . So those are the two files I need to move, but somehow they have a different name! This is new to me, but maybe some of you have seen it before? Strange...but thanks to you guys who tried to help. It was appreciated! If you check the links in the start menu on an actual install, they actually point to %windir%\ehome\ehshell.exe (for media center) and "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Sidebar\sidebar.exe" /showgadgets for the gadget gallery. Try editing those instead, and maybe just using the delete command. Or, you could just do what I mentioned earlier. Mount your WIM image and then just edit the directories you want instead of using the batch to move stuff during install. The install will simply copy over the edited wim file with the start menu stuff all set up as you want.
  14. Does the folders you're trying to move them to already exist? If not, you'll have to create them in your image so that the move command can move them there. The move command won't create the folders, and if they don't exist it simly won't move them. I just tested it myself, and if the folder doesn't exist it errors out. If you already mount the image to apply tweaks and stuff, you might as well just browse to the location to create the folders and move them yourself and then repackage the wim to install later. Otherwise, you'll have to add a command to create the new folders prior to moving the files there, which is probably just as easy to do.
  15. If it's fully automated then I assume you wouldn't be customizing their registration keys? If that's the case, you'd not want to do this since you'd harm your activation once Windows 7 needs to go online and activate.
