  1. Still no luck this morning... oO I made sure that this .inf was the only one in the boot image to make sure I don't have any duplicate driver that might interfere. Any toughts?
  2. Yes, that's what I'm doin too. Im installing the all those inside the prowinx64. I had no issue to get this machine working with the 32bits version. From what I read and tested, it's not possible to install a 64bits Windows from a 32bits WinPE. Thanks
  3. Hi, I'm currently trying to integrate in the boom.wim image the appropriate driver for a new Lenovo M90 (desktop PC) without any success. Tried the 15.5 (latest) driver and now and going to try 12.2 and now the 12.1.1 and maybe more... Is there anyone that been successfull with the driver. When my LiteTouch process is starting is says that it couldn't find the share and driver for peripheral PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_10EF&SUBSYS_305917AA&REV_06 was not installed. Thank you
  4. Been trying since yesterday to integrate this driver into my boot.wim image without any success. It still tells me that it couldn't reach the share and failed to get the device "PCI\VEN_8086&SUBSYS_305917AA&REV_06" working. I tried the NDIS61, NDIS62 from Intel Proset 15.5. What am I missing?
  5. Hi, is there a way to keep the current autoplay (which ask the user that to do when you insert a removable media) but to disable the action related to the autorun.inf. The autoplay thing isnt that bad because you can easily open the explorer when you insert a flash drive rather than opening "my computer" when you wan to access it. I'd like also to disable the autorun.inf in case a user want to browse from "my computer" and avoid to be infected with all those flash drive viruses. I've been reading a lot today on this subjet and I tried many registry tweak or gpo settings but in all case, the autoplay feature was disabled too. Thanks
  6. Hello, I've been using WDS to deploy Windows Vista for a couple month now. These last days I received some new laptop I have to add to my new installation template. I am using WDS to deploy unattended Vista installation. I'm not pushing images to workstation. So all my drivers are specified in the section: Microsoft-Windows-PnpCustomizationsNonWinPE\DriverPaths Each kind of driver has a seperate line. Everything is installing correctly, except on some model (right now a Dell E6500) for the video card that stays on VGA Generic Driver. When looking at the setup log it says for the video driver "[That driver inf file] is not a boot critical driver" and it stays like that. Anyone having the same issue? Thanks
  7. Hello, I am right now facing this problem on a Toshiba laptop. Still haven't found anything yet You might want to try that: http://portal.chrost.com/index.php?option=...6&Itemid=17 Good luck
  8. Thanks for the link. I usually prefer using retail driver on my system. Nothing again Rogue's work, but I like to make my own stuff JF
  9. Yup the one that loads the installation of Windows, those you put in i386. If you haven't had any problems with Intel, then you're a lucky guy.
  10. Delete the stuff they talk in their KB and it should work. My files are over 4k on my server too. I do beleive what whould be under 4k is the section related to what you should delete. If you look at your driver file, you'll have a section for a large amount of language. In my case, since my server are english but my client are french, I only deleted the part in french and english and it worked. Good luck!
  11. Now having another problem, i want to use the var defined in the fisrt loop to define a new var for the root of all profile <snip>COPY "%_AppPath%\SetOfficeName.vbs" "%PD_%\%%?\%_startupDir%" /Y</snip> In the COPY, still uses the %SYSTEMDRIVE% and it seems that the command COPY doesn't like it...
  12. Wow! How complicated is that batch file! Works great! I'll adjust it to use it in my script. Thanks!
  13. Hello, I'd like to create a script that drops a file in the startup dir of each profile located on the computer. So far it's working pretty good, except for the profile that has space in its name. Exemple: Default User Here is what I got so far: REM Drops all profile name in a temporary file dir "%_rootProfile%" /a:d /b > %SystemDrive%\_Profile.txt REM Read the file, line by line, then verifies if if "ALL USERS", in that case we do nothing. Then verifies if Profile name is valid (We don't want to drop in System Dir: Exemple: NetworkService). If the 2 condition are ok, drops the scripts in the startup dir. for /f %%f in (c:\_Profile.txt) do ( if not %%f=="All Users" ( if exist "%_rootProfile%\%%f\%_startupDir%" ( COPY "%_AppPath%\SetOfficeName.vbs" "%_rootProfile%\%%f\%_startupDir%"))) Works great except when %%f = Default instead of "Default User" Any help is appreciated. Thanks
  14. Alright guys, over the few years I've worked on RIS, Intel network driver have been always an issue. Each new card was a pain in the *%($/ to get working. Finally, Microsoft have release a KB that tells you how to modify their driver to work with RIS. KB923831 I was sceptical at first but I can tell you from what I saw so far that it fixed my problem. The brand new IBM X61 i reiceved (use 82566 Nic) is now working with my server. I really hope this helps you as much as it helped me. Took me 2 days to get that JF
  15. Got surprised to see one of my old topic back. On some PCs I still have the problem. Some IBM R60 will have the problem, while other R60 don't. Rebooting the computer, will however resolve the issue 100% of time. Hope this help.
  16. I had the same problem on my setup. Basically, you need 2 XML file. One should be the unattend Vista one, and the other one should be for the "boot". Just like the blue screen with RIS. That one should be linked inside the "Client" tab inside the properties of your main. Look under your MMC in WDS, right-click your server and go in properties. There link a XML file in the x86 architecture. Inside that file you should put all the WinPE config. For example mine include the language (I use french in my case) and this is where i delete the partition where i want to install Vista. x86-Microsoft-Windows-International-Core-WinPE-Neutral SetupUILanguage x86-Microsoft-Windows-Setup-Neutral DiskConfiguration WindowsDeployementService Good luck. Once this work, you should be able to smile a little before the week-end
  17. You could try to search into the registry for your old source path. There will be a couple instance. One for sure will be in HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\[Then some GUID] but you might find other place. Good luck
  18. Or MS simply wants to push its BDD... Kinda gay since WDS is the replacement for RIS...
  19. Hi, thanks for this quick reply. If I leave the credentials blank, what will be use? Do I have to enter the local admin credentials or the domain account (which is admin of the computer) EDIT: I left the credentials blank and it worked pretty well! THANKS A LOT! This made my day

  21. Hello, is there a way to temporary disable the UAC from popping authorization. I am running an unattended batch file on my first logon (Im logging with a domain account, that has local administrator rights). That batch files performs stuff like importing registry tweak and other stuff and need admin rights (even if Im logged with an admin account) If it's impossible, is there another way to do that? Thanks
  22. Hello, I finally managed to get a semi working build for my mass Vista deployment. I still have a couple bug which I don't know how to solve (read the doc but couldnt solve). 1) It still ask me, in that language I want to use in my setup. 2) Still ask me about the disk where I want to install. 3) Doesn't join the domain. Network drivers are installed.

  23. Hi everyone, I am searching, exploring on this for a while now but I still haven't found any clear answer on this. Right now my deployment are done with RIS. I dont use RIPrep, I am working with SIF file and I am very pleased the way it works. I just would like to know what is now the replacement for this. Please be specific in your answer. I tried BDD and WDS but I don't know where to starts and Microsoft docs is not very clear. I tried a couple guide I found but still can't make it work the way I want. I usually think Microsoft docs is good, but on those products is just getting more confusing each time I read. There is SO MANY file to check and so many scenario. Any advices is more than welcome. Thanks
