  1. Thanks for your suggestion , I found the problem, .... Ksthunk.sys , the os seems to think its an unsinged driver, i ran "bcdedit -set loadoptions \DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECK" now running the os in "Test" mode and made a developer certificate for Ksthunk.sys, now the driver loads and installs, everything appears ok, but still no audio.....................i'll keep trying .......................
  2. SERVER CORE 2008 R2 >>> SERVER CORE 2008 R2 WITH EXPLORER GUI WHY?... because i needed a X64 only(server core has the option to remove 32bit support making it a 64bit only OS) Microsoft os that was small,fast,stable, and would run only my Digital Audio Workstation Software. BUT.... Getting the Audio Drivers to load properly has so far been a real problem and i'm really stuggling with this issue, maybe someone far cleverer than me can sort it out...However i have managed to get the relevent audio services working, so no problem there. SO.. here's how... ----------------------------- i use the following tools etc.... (download) Microsoft Server 2008 R2 Sp1.. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/ee175713.aspx (download and install) Microsoft WAIK.... http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=5753 (download) Gimagex(free, wim file manipulation with gui).. http://www.autoitscript.com/site/autoit-tools/gimagex/ (download) o&o Regeditor(free,has good copy and paste feature, does things regedt32.exe cant) http://www.oo-software.com/corp/en/download/current/ooregeditor/index.html (download) NotePad++ (free, and i preffer it to Notepad).. http://www.oo-software.com/corp/en/download/current/ooregeditor/index.html (download) VirtualBox, for testing.. http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads Finally, any Iso manipulation tool, i use ultraIso ------------------------------ create folders in the root of your drive - c:\SOURCES (this is where i put the *.wim files for mounting) c:\COREPLUS (this is where i mount 'CORE.wim' for manipulation etc) c:\STANDARD (this is where i mount 'STD2008.wim' for file and registry copying) ------------------------------- Extract 'install.wim' from the iso file of 'Server 2008 R2 SP1' to C:\SOURCES\install.wim Run GimageX and export image 1 to C:\SOURCES\STD2008.wim then export image 2 to c:\SOURCES\CORE.wim ------------------------------- Mount 'STD2008.wim' to C:\STANDARD then Mount 'CORE.wim' to C:\CORE (Remember to mount both wim's in read\write mode) ------------------------------- Copy all the files from the root of C:\STANDARD\windows\system32 to C:\CORE\windows\system32 (overwrite all files) Copy C:\STANDARD\windows\en-US\explorer.exe.mui to C:\CORE\windows\en-US\explorer.exe.mui Copy C:\STANDARD\windows\Resources\*.* to C:\core\windows\Resources\*.* Copy C:\STANDARD\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\DeviceMetadataStore\*.* to C:\CORE\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\DeviceMetadataStore\*.* Copy C:\STANDARD\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures to C:\core\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures Copy C:\STANDARD\Program Files\Internet Explorer\*.* to C:\CORE\Program Files\Internet Explorer\*.* -------------------------------- Now for the registry stuff, this might or might not be a bit tricky, depends on you user rights and ownership etc.... run regedt32, click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, file,load hive . then load C:\CORE\Windows\system32\config\SOFTWARE . use key name 'CORESOFT' then load C:\CORE\Windows\system32\config\SYSTEM . use key name 'CORESYS' then load C:\STANDARD\Windows\system32\config\SOFTWARE . use key name 'STDSOFT' then load C:\STANDARD\Windows\system32\config\SYSTEM . use key name 'STDSYS' Now close regedt32 and open O&Oregedit highlight 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\CORESOFT\Classes' right click on 'Classes'>permissions>advanced>owner , (make sure you are the owner and click on 'replace owner on subcontainers and objects)>apply>ok>ok . right click again and select 'clear'>'yes' 'Classes' should now be deleted(takes a few seconds) Highlight 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\STDSOFT\Classes' right click on 'Classes' and select copy, navigate back to 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\CORESOFT' and right click, select paste Do the same again but for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\CORESOFT\Microsoft\Internet Explorer And for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\CORESOFT\Microsoft\Explorer And for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\CORESOFT\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\MMDevices And for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\CORESOFT\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SideBySide And for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\CORESOFT\Microsoft\WindowsNt\CurrentVersion\Multimedia And for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\CORESOFT\Microsoft\WindowsNt\CurrentVersion\Svchost ------ And for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\CORESYS\ControlSet001\Control\Class And for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\CORESYS\ControlSet001\Control\CoDeviceInsatallers And for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\CORESYS\ControlSet001\Control\GroupOrderList And for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\CORESYS\ControlSet001\Control\MediaInterfaces And for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\CORESYS\ControlSet001\Control\MediaProperties And for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\CORESYS\ControlSet001\Control\ServiceGroupOrder And for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\CORESYS\ControlSet001\Services\AudioEndPointBuilder And for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\CORESYS\ControlSet001\Services\AudioSrv And for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\CORESYS\ControlSet001\Services\HDAudBus And for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\CORESYS\ControlSet001\Services\ksthunk And for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\CORESYS\ControlSet001\Services\MMCSS Also change HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\CORESOFT\Microsoft\WindowsNt\CurrentVersion\WinLogon to "Shell = Explorer.exe" ------- Close O&Oregeditor Open regedt32.exe uload hive CORESOFT,CORESYS,STDSOFT,STDSYS close regedt32.exe ------------------------------- Open GimageX, Capture C:\CORE , maximum compression, SKU FLAG - STANDARDSERVER Destination = anywhere you want (i named mine coreplus.wim and put it in C:\SOURCE This may take a bit of time here, put kettle on, have a cuppa T / Coffe ------------------------------- Inject your edited wim file in to a bootable iso and install on your VirtualBox or HD
  3. Well, this is the closest i can get, everything works apart from the loading of the audio drivers, just cant seem to get it to load them.............
  4. Getting closer.... audio service is running now including dependencies....i was missing some entry's in the registry. just the driver loading to sort out.....nearly there!!.....
  5. Absolutelly correct........however it can be modified to run audio, i'm just not sure how, same as it's not desinged to have a gui...................
  6. Hi All I'm trying to get audio working in server core(Standard R2 SP1) i've tried the following .... Added 'AudioEndpointBuilder', 'AudioSrv','HDAudBus', 'Class', 'DeviceClasses' and their relevant data to the system registry, also added the relevant data in 'services' but with no joy Driver loads, but with "Invalid Data" Any ideas??, have i missed something? Any help much appreciated
  7. Im working on this at at the moment, server core with GUI, not all of it it functions as it should, but getting there slowly Why? because i wanted a 64bit only OS windows based with a gui, hence this........
