  1. Well my regtweak worked... So to get the Documents and Settings folder plus you login name to change, but still be able to use autologin, you have to use this regtweak, along with the rename settings of Yzöwl... Thanks!
  2. I do know btw what ofcourse causes the problem with not being able to log in automaticly... Because the name and profile did change, but, the log-in that is filled in is still Administrator. So we have to change the name that he automaticly fills in... Is there a way to tell windows which username to use when logging in. tnx for the help so far [edit] Maybe found a way? [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon] "DefaultUserName"="Username" Have not tryed it yet!
  3. oke i now have this... renuser.exe Administrator "First Second" inside my cleanup.cmd like this: cmdow @ /HID echo off FOR %%i IN (D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) DO IF EXIST %%i:\UXPCD_IDENT.txt SET CDROM=%%i: // Renaming Administrator Account renuser.exe Administrator "First Second" <-------First is your first name, Second you last... ofcrouse EXIT Were "First Second" ofcourse is my first and last name.
  4. Oke thanks i'll just try that... can i copy Yzöwl's code and past it infront of the cleanup.cmd? And @rikgale You can prefent that in a much easyer way... set UserStart=%UserProfile%\Menu Start DEL /Q /F "%UserStart%\Windows Update.lnk" Thanks for the quick reply! [edit] This only is usefull if you have the script running on that account ofcourse [edit2] @Yzöwl's I think i understand what you mean, add the command to the cleanup.cmd file like you posted it. So that the it will be done at the moment the cmdlines.txt calls on the cleanup.cmd... right?
  5. @Yzöwl or anyone else who knows Well i tryed it, but it didn't work. i added the following in my cmdlines.txt [COMMANDS] "REGEDIT /S tweaks.reg" "Cleanup.cmd" "renuser.exe "Administrator" "First Second"" I use a space in my name... maybe that is the reason why? If so, what is the proper syntax? Because renaming it without the quates around my name with the space it doesn't rename. I tested this when windows was running. Thanks in advance
  6. oke thanks, i'll try that! But the usual stuff, you mean you normal unattended awsners? Thanks!
  7. Well i used RunOnceEx, to run my RenName.cmd... Which contains the following: cmdow @ /HID @echo off echo Renaming Administrator Account renuser "Administrator" "My new name" EXIT It does rename the Administrator account, but when it is all done and it's waiting to enter it's password (i have classic login) it still say Administrator. I tryed to log in with My new name, works fine. But in Documents and settings there is a folder named Administrator, wich is the folder containing the info for My new name. I want that to be renamed as well, just as nLite does, but i don't wanna use nLite. With nLite it also fills in the new name automaticly. Hope anyone can help me. Thanks in advance
  8. Well i just thought of another sollution, don't understand why i would not thought of this before, but i just use my sil3114 raid controller.... it also supports more raid forms... Anyone got an idea on how to slipstream these drivers without nLite? Thanks, greatz, MyDomain
  9. Well i'm still trying stuff. But the second reason i dont what the SW-Driver installed is because of that stupide USB-Icon that apears, i can't remove my drives ever because they are always in use. So it is completly useless... Hope anyone can still give me some info on how to make sure SW-Driver doesn't get installed, while the rest of the drivers do. tnx, in advance. [edit] But it is also not possible to make it use a standard IDE driver along with the nvraid drivers? Because in windows i will install the nForce drivers and then install the other IDE drivers, but then say no on the prompt for SW-Driver installation.
  10. I believe the SW stands for swappable or something. All i know is that it can cause issues, for example with the audigy drivers. It also makes the USB-Tray show at the bottom right of your taskbar, showing your two hdd's, which you can then disable like a USB-Drive, but ofcourse you can't becaue they are ofcourse in use. But does no one have a clue? Which file it is? or maybe make only the raid work and not install the IDE drivers, and hopefully the IDE SW-Driver neither. It's all i need... or maybe an awnser file for the driver... if that is possible... just throwing in some radical ideas.
  11. I would like this to work, because i heard that there are still people that have problems with the IDE SW-Drivers, i have a new pc at the moment and i don't wanna create any software problems that can be avoided. This way i can better test if there is anything else wrong. Thanks in advance, MyDomain
  12. Hi! I hope anyone can help me figger this out. I have slipstreamed my nvRaid drivers succesfully, after a little bumb in the road. But after i installed my windows i saw that the IDE SW-Driver is automaticly installed, but i don't want that. Normally when you install the drivers of nForce in windows, it will prompt you to install it, but ofcourse during the unattended intall it doesn't. Can anyone help me to get the nvRaid drivers installed, but prevent this IDE SW-Driver to be installed? It could be enough if the IDE Drivers are not installed at all, but i don't know what to remove to do so and if the RAID will still work then. I hope anyone can help me get the nvRaid drivers installed, without the IDE SW-Driver. Thanks in advance!
  13. Thanks, i already knew that target path had to be /n,/e,c: but just needed to get the shortcut to have that automaticly, kinda stupide that i didn't thought of just copying the shortcut from my CD, it's so easy... but i was thinking to difficult. Thanks! cheers!
  14. Oke thanks, i'll try this out when i'm back home tonight... Cheers!
  15. Hi i got something new that i'm trying to figger out. As the title says... i want to get Windows Explorer to start in C automaticly. I know how to make this happen manually by changing the target in the shortcut, or atleast by adding: /n,/e,c: to the end of the already excisting target path. But how can i make this happen during my unattended CD, maybe with a registry tweak or a cmd file that changes the target path for me. How can i make this happen? If possible? It is enough if i can only change the target file of the Windows Explorer link in the Start Menu, i can then copy that link to my desktop and quicklaunch. Hope this is possible... Thanks in advance, cheers!
  16. Well if you look on unattended.msfn.org and go to the advanced section, they advise you not to use the GuiRun in your WINNT.SIF... I for example execute my tweaks totaly different I create a folder named $OEM$ in the root of your XPCD in it i place a file called cmdlines.txt and in there i have the following. [COMMANDS] "REGEDIT /S tweaks.reg" "Cleanup.cmd" In this same folder were I have the cmdlines.txt i place my tweaks.reg file with all of my tweaks in it. They all execute perfectly, for one little exception wich i got solved with the help of others, read about it here: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=40905&st=10 If you don't use that tweak you can ignore that link. It sets SmallIcons in IE & Windows Explorer. Hope this is the awnser you were looking for
  17. I followed Dahi's link and have made my own version of it. Here is how my version passes by the SmallIcon problem... Make a file called SmallIcons.cmd in it copy & past the following code: @echo off // Executing Registry Key REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\SmallIcons" /v "SmallIcons" /t REG_SZ /d "yes" /f // Removing Files DEL /S /Q "%UserProfile%\Menu Start\Programma's\Opstarten\*.*" EXIT Change the %UserProfile%\Menu Start\Programma's\Opstarten\*.* to the correct one, every language will be different. You can also choose to just delete one file, in that case replace the *.* with SmallIcons.cmd and it will only remove that file. In order for this file to run, you must Copy it to %UserProfile%\Menu Start\Programma's\Opstarten\ this location, i did it as was told in the other topic with my cleanup.cmd cmdow @ /HID echo off FOR %%i IN (D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) DO IF EXIST %%i:\CD.txt SET CDROM=%%i: //Copy file from CD-Rom to the specified location COPY /Y "%CDROM%\$OEM$\SmallIcons.cmd" "%UserProfile%\Menu Start\Programma's\Opstarten" EXIT The first line with a part of the alfabet is ofcourse to look up the CD-Rom drive, in order for this to work make an empty txt file with the name CD.txt and place it in the root of your XPCD The SmallIcons.cmd is in this case placed in the $OEM$ you can place it were you want to, but you will need to point the location out in the file. I thought i add it to this post, in case anybody searching for this and ended up here, would get an awnser as wel Thanks alot guys!, i will now go on and try to get ridth of other anoying things, have learned alot of this, CHEERS!
  18. @Dahi Thank you!!! i will look into it right away! I think i should brush up on my search skills, if you people are able to find, how come i don't? i already used the methods from the post that is linked above here. I always did even before reading it. Anywayz! thanks! @IcemaND Thanks!, i also read your topic http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showto...820&hl=KB885250 if i am still not succesfull, i'll try to experiment with that!
  19. Well it looks like those two hotfixes are not really wanted... Because trying to integrate my 14 hotfixes into my cd with nLite resulted in only 12 being copyed and listed in the svcpack. Again the same two updates were not integrated. I gues i just let those two be, unless someone can tell me why it hasnt been integrated, but i find that doubtfull since this thread has been read more than 100 times. Thanks, cheers! Awnsers are always welcome
  20. No problem, thanks for trying And the hotfix suggestion didn't work maybe i did something wrong? This is how it looks like now: [Version] Signature="$Windows NT$" MajorVersion=5 MinorVersion=1 BuildNumber=2600 [SetupData] CatalogSubDir="\i386\SVCPACK" [ProductCatalogsToInstall] [SetupHotfixesToRun] KB867282.exe /Q /O /N /Z KB873333.exe /Q /O /N /Z KB873339.exe /Q /O /N /Z KB885835.exe /Q /O /N /Z KB885250.exe /Q /O /N /Z KB885836.exe /Q /O /N /Z KB886185.exe /Q /O /N /Z KB887742.exe /Q /O /N /Z KB888113.exe /Q /O /N /Z KB888302.exe /Q /O /N /Z KB890047.exe /Q /O /N /Z KB890175.exe /Q /O /N /Z KB890830.exe /Q KB891781.exe /Q /O /N /Z qchain.exe The same two are still not installed. But the odd thing this time, is that KB890830.exe is not listed as needed updates anymore. But it is also not in the list of software. Is it possible that if my normal windows is a little bit screwed up, that it affects the result of these installations in VMware? Maybe i should think about a full format and then start trying to get these things to work. Also VMware is saying that i don't have VMware Tools installed or something, but it can only be installed if the guest is fully booted or something. I don't understand that, nor did it install when ever i tryed to install it. Cheers!
  21. Oke i will... I did do alot of searching and reading before i asked and i understand that a better Title could of been applyed sorry for that. I will try the hotfixes again today, thank you. Nobody has seen any errors in my batch files either? I have found that in the HIVEDEF.INF there are alot of registry keys being enterd, also one concerning the SmallIcons of Explorer en IE. HKCU,"Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\SmallIcons","SmallIcons",0x00010003,0 This is the key, i removed it, installation didn't gave errors but the icons were also not applyed Maybe someone understands this key better then i do, when is it run what does the numbers stand for and were does the "0" stand for, i also saw some keys ending with "1" I have discoverd that my key did get entered in some cases, atleast, the folder was in the registry, but the key with the fallue "yes" was not there. I also tryed to add it with a .cmd file without the /f. This gave me ofcourse the prompt that the key already excisted. But when i do a clean install without the tweaks it does not already excist when i look into the registry. That was kinda odd, since he did say it already excisted when i used the cmd file. Hope this brings anyone to an idea? Thanks for the hotfix suggestion, will try it tonight! Cheers!
  22. Hi, well maybe some of you have read my Power Management topic, if so, i solved that problem. But i only managed to solve that. I'm still stuck with the following problems: 1st Still those SmallIcons in IE and Windows Explorer. Before i started this unattended CD i already had a *.reg file that i would normally run after installing windows. This worked just fine, also the SmallIcons work fine. But as you all know, QuickLaunch for example can only be saved at T12 during installation. So i started making my unattended CD. This is the tweak that sets SmallIcons for IE as well as for Windows Explorer, i have removed this key from the registry of my current windows, manually set icons back to small and checked if the key would be back. YUP!, it was back, so it is the correct one. It also works if i run it in a tweak file or cmd file or what ever in windows on an already installed version of windows. ;Sets Small ToobarIcons [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\SmallIcons] "SmallIcons"="yes" Problem is that it doesn't stick when i run it from my tweaks.reg during installation. (read below for more things i tryed with this) 2nd HotFix integration I have done the tutorial on how to add hotfixes to my setup. I used the svcpack.inf method. Problem that comes up here is that 2 of the 14 dont install. The two tweaks that don't install are the following: KB890830 & KB885835. (read below on how i done it) 3th SmallIcons in CLASSIC START MENU This one has been a real pain in my a**, still haven't found a correct tweak that set's this. I will now show you how i have set up my unattended CD, in hope anyone can help me or give suggestion or ideas, or maybe even sollutions. Here is my WINNT.SIF which i placed in the I386 folder. WINNT.SIF Then i created $OEM$ folder in the root of my CD and put my *.reg file and the cmdlines.txt in it. Here is my tweakfile & cmdlines.txt tweaks.reg cmdlines.txt To get the hotfixes integrated i created a folder in the I386 folder and named it SVCPACK, in there i placed all the updates needed. I also renamed them as was stated on the unattended.msfn.org website. Then i removed the SVCPACK.IN_ and added my own svcpack.inf, with the following content: [Version] Signature="$Windows NT$" MajorVersion=5 MinorVersion=1 BuildNumber=2600 [SetupData] CatalogSubDir="\i386\SVCPACK" [ProductCatalogsToInstall] [SetupHotfixesToRun] KB867282.exe /Q /O /N /Z KB873333.exe /Q /O /N /Z KB873339.exe /Q /O /N /Z KB885250.exe /Q /O /N /Z KB885835.exe /Q /O /N /Z KB885836.exe /Q /O /N /Z KB886185.exe /Q /O /N /Z KB887742.exe /Q /O /N /Z KB888113.exe /Q /O /N /Z KB888302.exe /Q /O /N /Z KB890047.exe /Q /O /N /Z KB890175.exe /Q /O /N /Z KB890830.exe /Q /O /N /Z KB891781.exe /Q /O /N /Z qchain.exe Well this is how i have it set up. (part2 SmallIcons IE & Windows Explorer) I did try some other things to hopefully fix the SmallIcons problem, for example using RunOnceEX.cmd with the following content: cmdow @ /HID @echo off SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Forceren Gebruikers Instellingen" /f REG ADD %KEY%\005 /VE /D "Forceer: Kleine Pictogrammen" /f REG ADD HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\SmallIcons /v SmallIcons /t REG_SZ /d yes /f EXIT I added "RunOnceEx.cmd" to the cmdline.txt file under the entry which launches the regfile. Then i created the following folder structure root\$OEM$\$$\System32\ and placed the cmdow.exe in it. I really hope i did something wrong, because that would mean there is a sollution I also tryed to put the icon tweak in a seperate file, place it in the $1 folder and run it in RunOnceEx.cmd This with the following code in RunOnceExe.cmd cmdow @ /HID @echo off SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Forceren Gebruikers Instellingen" /f REG ADD %KEY%\005 /VE /D "Forceer: Kleine Pictogrammen" /f REG ADD %KEY%\005 /V 1 /D "REGEDIT /S %systemdrive%\smallicons.reg" /f EXIT I hoped after alot of trying i would get there, well i managed to solve my power management, but the rest just doesn't go away. Please point out my mistakes!, so i can fix it! Thanks in advance, Cheers!
  23. Oke problem one has been solved! I use VMware now, which i btw should of used before, like it much better. I also integrated a different SP2, or atleast the one from an original SP2 CD. Now my Power Management is back. My questions on SmallIcons in Classic Start Menu and IE still remain as well as the System Restore. Hope anyone out there still hasn't read this topic and does know the awnser. I'll keep trying, cheers!
  24. oke, tnx that's atleast something Wonder what could be it then Well, i'll keep experimenting [EDIT] Oke, well something is really odd, because i dit a fresh integration of SP2 network version, dutch. Downloaded it 2days ago from microsoft.com. I installed that, without the WINNT.SIF to rule out that it is the SP2 pach, but in fact the energie button is still gone, so it's not the WINNT.SIF and according to WotC it should not be M. Virtual PC either. I'm goin to test this myself as well, but if it is true that it will still not be there with a different app. I am wondring how it could be that that SP2 does not intstall power management. Cheers!... (awnsers to the other question are still very much welcome )
