  1. kc_ Here is something else you can try. From your desktop 1 Right click my computer 2 Click the "advanced" tab 3 In the box near the bottom labled "Startup and Recovery" click the "settings" button 4 Select the drop down box labled "Default operating system" to see what is listed. There should be only one OS. Also you can modify the "time to display list of operating systems:" to less than 30 secs here. I would not recomend lowering the one for recovery options. This is the screen that gives you safe mode options at startup in the event of a crash during boot. If this does not fix your problem please click the edit button (DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING MANUALLY UNLESS YOU SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR DOING) which will open your boot.ini file. Copy it, post it and I will take a look. Hope this helps...
  2. Let's see if I'm understanding you correctly you would just like your Unattended Install cd to add your cd key for you??? Lets try this backwards what would you like your UI cd to do for you? Sorry for the sarcasm...
  3. If you always reformat why don't you specify it to do that in your winnt.sif file automatically? [Data] AutoPartition=1 [Unattended] FileSystem=NTFS As far as the dual boot if you are formatting the entire drive you should only see one boot however that option should be able to bypassed with your boot settings. You can check your boot options in msconfig or from a cmd prompt with bootcfg it should look something like this. Boot entry ID: 1 Friendly Name: "Microsoft Windows XP Professional" Path: multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS OS Load Options: /fastdetect Anything more than this would indicate that you have not formated the entire drive, have installed multiple os or have a problem with your boot setup.
  4. I'm not sure where you think my username and computername are the same? They are similar but not the same scottspc/scott Also I did post the orginal files the first winnt.sif file I posted the section relating to the problem and the second time I posted it for the simple install it was the full file???
  5. Thanks for everyones help on this. I made a few minor tweaks this morning and now everything works great.
  6. Sorry I can't be much help with the driver aspect because I haven't even gone near it for my two current builds. As far as the .exe files that is a hole different aspect. It will take some time to look through everything but the unattended section will help you run any other program installs. MSFN's Unattended XP CD If your new to unattended installs don't cheat, read from begining to end then back to the forums and then you will understand the mysteries of life... Well got to catch some shut eye
  7. I had the exact same problem... Try using the {default user} folder instead of your {user}. When new accounts are created the files will be copied to their profile. The only thing to keep in mind is if you are on a shared computer all new accounts you create will get a copy of those files.
  8. PS to save money on cd's you can use the iso that nLite creates with VM Ware or another VM to test the install. Alot of the VM programs also have a trial version which is more then enough to pop out one UI cd.
  9. Try running the setup again and check the results. Those problems could have had an effect on other installs.
  10. Try using nLite to remove components and drivers it works great. MSFN - Universal Windows Slipstreaming and Bootable CD Guide This has the info you should need.
  11. If I remember correctly it ran after the "registering components" portion of the install and before the "saving settings". I'm not sure it is possible to change when the cmdlines.txt runs being that windows calls it automatically.
  12. The target path actually does accept "\" and was no problem during the setup. I think I have found the solution to this problem elsewhere but have yet to test it. It's not the execution of the useraccounts.cmd that is a problem it is one of the commands. I added a pause at the end of the cmd file which is how I got the output of the error during setup however I'm not able to find out what is causing the problem and what problems it could cause down the road.
  13. With Ad Aware you should have a /s at the end to suppress the interface REG ADD %KEY%\005 /VE /D "Installing Ad-aware SE Professional" /f REG ADD %KEY%\005 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\Applications\AdWare\AdWareSEPersonal1.05.exe /s" /f Also you have an extra " in Alcohol and Any DVD you should remove one. REG ADD %KEY%\015 /VE /D "Installing Alcohol 120%" /f REG ADD %KEY%\015 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\Install\Applications\Alcohol120\AlcoholSetup.msi /qn" /f REG ADD %KEY%\015 /V 2 /D ""REGEDIT /S %systemdrive%\install\Applications\Alcohol120\registry.reg" /f REG ADD %KEY%\025 /VE /D "Installing AnyDVD" /f REG ADD %KEY%\025 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\Install\Applications\AnyDVD\AnyDVD_Setup.exe /S" /noreboot /f REG ADD %KEY%\025 /V 2 /D ""REGEDIT /S %systemdrive%\install\Applications\AnyDVD\key.reg" /f WMP has a few errors that I can see. Remove the / after c: The largest near the end should be /DisallowSystemRestore" /f REG ADD %KEY%\065 /VE /D "Installing Windows Media Player 10" /f REG ADD %KEY%\065 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\Install\Applications\WMP10\MP10Setup.exe /q:A /c:/"setup.wm.exe /Q /R:N /DisallowSystemRestore\"" /f Hope this helps
  14. Here is the correct Alcohol switch which will stop the reboot. I will review the others to look for problems.
  15. The OEMPreinstall only needs to be set to yes if you are using the $OEM$ to install other apps, tweaks, etc. and the UnattendSwitch only needs to be set if you want to bypass the network setup adn regional options. Which in both cases are not factors in doing a basic install test. Thanks
  16. You can remove it using the nLite setup program under the components removal or you can delete the actual .lnk file during setup like this(you will need to know the exact location of the file) ECHO Removing useless shortcuts... DEL "%systemdrive%\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Oulook Express.lnk" I use this line to remove 20 or more link from my desktop and start menu for all profiles in my start.cmd file. Also you might be able to turn it off in your winnt.sif file under the [Components] section but I'm not positive and have not yet experimented. The first two I have tested succesfully and has not affected outlook. I too AM a outlook fan and NOT of Express.
  17. This may be a stupid question but what I'm reading from this post is that with VM Ware for instance if my Org name is "MyCompany" VM will generate the computer name as "MyCompany-"bla bla bla Can anyone comment on this? Thanks in advanced
  18. If it is in your cmdlines.txt file you don't want it in the [GuiRunOnce]. In my [GuiRunOnce] the only thing I have is my start.cmd which will auto install my programs.
  19. Try these... It works for me. [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel] ;My computer "{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}"=dword:00000000 ; My network places "{208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D}"=dword:00000000 ;My documents "{450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103}"=dword:00000000 ;Internet Explorer "{871C5380-42A0-1069-A2EA-08002B30309D}"=dword:00000000
  20. Would you like to remove the hole program or just the link?
  21. I've gone back to the begining and tried the most basic UI without SP2 or additional installs. I only added the winnt.sif file and it still changes my computer name to "mobile-" then the randoms string of characters. Here is the full winnt.sif file that was used. ;SetupMgrTag [Data] AutoPartition=1 MsDosInitiated="0" UnattendedInstall="Yes" [Unattended] UnattendMode=FullUnattended OemSkipEula=Yes OemPreinstall=No TargetPath=\WINDOWS [GuiUnattended] AdminPassword="XXXXX" EncryptedAdminPassword=NO AutoLogon=Yes AutoLogonCount=5 OEMSkipRegional=1 TimeZone=20 OemSkipWelcome=1 [UserData] ProductKey=XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX FullName="Scott Stein" OrgName="Mobile Gear" ComputerName=scottspc [TapiLocation] CountryCode=1 Dialing=Tone AreaCode=952 [RegionalSettings] LanguageGroup=2,1 [Identification] JoinWorkgroup=scottshome [Networking] InstallDefaultComponents=Yes
  22. Try REG ADD %KEY%\053 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\Install\Applications\WinRAR\winamp504_full.exe /S" /f for WinAMP
  23. You want the switch to follow the file extension such as .msi REG ADD %KEY%\015 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\Install\Applications\Alcohol_120%\Alcohol120%_Setup.msi /qn REBOOT=Suppress" /f Check out your WMP which is set correctly
  24. You only have command line switches for WMP and Office. Check out the applications section of of unattended.msfn.org for some of the more popular ones. Also you can check the Application Switches Thread. This topic has alot of good ones Application Switches. Please feel free to reply or pm if there anr any you can't find or don't work correctly. Thanks
  25. According to Microsoft ProductKey is the new prefered method for this not ProductID. I have no problems with it using ProductKey. Try leaving it as ProductKey but wrapping it with "quotes" Eg ProductKey="XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX"
