  1. Came across this M$ URL and thought some may find it helpful: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-ca/library/dd744318(WS.10).aspx
  2. You have to understand that whenever you mount the wim hives each of the 3 separate hives must have 3 separate unique names. This is the root of your problem in this command. You cannot just load the hives without giving them a temporary name; herein is the problem, you do not know what RT7Lite is naming the hives when loading them, so, your command will do nothing. Plus, you have to watch for conflict For instance, as an example, if setup sees two conflicting GP objects it will load the last one read providing one is not user vs machine (user vs user or machine vs machine; machine=HKLM will o
  3. Well as maxXPsoft states you have DISM already, but, you need WAIK (or OPK) for imagex and also require the documentation/help files. I do not believe you have to register for anything to get WAIK. If you want a truly fantastic install, stable, solid, fast and all done without any real workarounds in a fully supported fashion use Group Policy in audit mode. If you are in IT or something and have a server, you can include a standard set of GP objects with your deployment. While this is a lot of work initially, the end result of using GP is phenominal; and much easier to maintain. If doing all t
  4. The following batch will load your wim, then the wim registry hives, apply reg tweaks, save and unload both, or, remark the mount/unmount commands, load the wim in DISM, merge your custom files, do whatever else and dismount with DISM. You wil have to change the paths to your wims and OPK tools. Also, you may choose to name your wim hives something other than WIM_Default....etc.-no spaces, but, the names of the branches in your custom files must match the names you apply to the wim hives when you mount them. The legend is: (HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_Software\Classes (HKEY_CUR
  5. no one believed me when I said it won't go no further and wanted to jump me. Try the RT7 Mod's unpin and let die It's not that maxXPsoft; everybody deserves a chance-especially if their endeavor is good/beneficial. The admins must now decide.......... I do not like RT7-use DISM and imageX, but, I agree; time to close the thread and let it go the way of the dinosaurs. Blue has no intention of ever opening it again and continuing development-for whatever reason; if whatever is the cause of his dismay obviously requires more help. So, thanks Blue, is a good program, but, unless you are capable o

  7. http://www.microsoft...0c-a6cef9b414c4 You will need to pass validation to download it and it is a msu file (same format as updates) so you should be able to integrate it using DISM. If that does not integrate without error, perhaps, try integrating this first, then the above: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=13beb697-e897-40a8-81b5-c20a0529f599
  8. I completely disable Windows Defender from running at all both in my answer and reg files. I have no scheduling key at all, actually all my Windows Defender keys are empty as a result. So, like the Action center entries, even though the box is checked, scheduling is turned off. You will find the same thing occurs with Action Center settings; all of the messages are turned off and if you open Action Center from the control panel it shows in settings "not monitored", yet, the check boxes remain checked. I fought and searched with this for a week and was able to come up with no cure for the boxes

  10. OK! Thanks again, RickSteele. I DLed and installed WAIK on my W7 machine. The first time I tried to run your scaled down RegHive.cmd file the Reg Unload got an 'Access is denied' error. I then ran it again (no Load) and included the TakeOwn and icacls commands and the Unload worked. The WIM_Software key is no longer in my Registry. I assume my image now contains my change. I will test the image on my VM later. Thanks and enjoy, John. Yes, if you saved the changes before dismount you should be good to go-assuming you got no access errors merging the reg file containing your customizati
  11. To my knowledge you can only mount the wim and load the wim hives from the native OS on the native OS. You must mount the wim and run the cmd on your Win 7 system only; you will find the wim hive under "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_Software" in regedit-refer to the WIMRegHivesMounted.7z for some screen captures illustrating what I stated. That is the only way I have used the cmd files. Hope this clarifies it a little for ya' WIMHivesMounted.7z Check out this post: http://www.ryanvm.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8616 ....may be a workaround.
  12. RickSteele, thanks again. I do use WAIK and have for some time, have an fairly thorough AutoUnattend.xml and have started injecting IE9. I did not use my IE8 tweaks, but customized IE9 and Exported the keys I needed. I Import them on subsequent installs and all seems to be working fine. What I would really like is a way to inject (integrate) SP1. I know RT7Lite will do it but I am beginning to wonder it it has gone dormant. I see only questions (including mine) but no answers lately. I tried to PM bensam56, but his Inbox is full. I would like to know how he injects SP1. Please let us
  13. Thank you. No Problemo', glad I could help SoLor has just updated the pack folders to include todays hotfixes-Oct. 12, 2010; so, you might want to revisit before starting your integration
  14. I slipstream all my custom reg entries into the wim using a cmd file like this one attached, then, save the changes. Of course your paths and file names will differ, but, it always works perfectly; so far anyways RegHive.7z
  15. Client for NFS\ add this to your installation IE8 updates, if you are not using IE9 beta\ add this to your installation if you are not integrating Internet Explorer 9 beta IIS\ MSMQ\ Subsystem for UNIX-based Applications\ Do not add any of these three Integrate to installation media\ extract the two cabs and move the files to your "sources" folder manually replacing the files there
