  1. Take any file and compute the MD5 hashes of the two files (must be the same file) http://www.slavasoft.com/hashcalc/index.htm If they are equal then it is probably the result of waste due to the block size of the file system. Edit: FYI On my current XP disc (SP2 /w all critical updates integrated) File: SYSDM.CP_ MD5 HASH: 0747984cf7eb6ad3572fb31d01e831db The Windows Calculator Program is the same version for every version of xp that I know of (retail/oem/corp of home/media center/professional) *grin* File: CALC.EX_ MD5 HASH: e73cfccd7ddaff487f913f030f89f1d7 (should be the same for very versio
  2. I can't see any reason why you would want to do this unless your doing something that your users would not like. As far as I know exescript and reg2exe are just intended for packaging purposes and do not 'encrypt' your script/registry entires. Why does it matter? Just about every batch file I've seen used on an unattended disc is fairly simple. Your registry settings can easily be discovered by using a registry snapshot program. Why do you need to protect your content? It's on a CDR and most people would have no idea that it's different from a regular XP disc (besides not being shiney) and eve
  3. Well... it chokes both ways.... I'm out of Ideas. Only other thing I can think of making from single disc versions.
  4. It seems that there are also files that need to be replaced within the 3ENE, 3ENS, 3ENW directorys... I could write a program to copy over the files from the SP's I386 directory, but I'm wondering if there is a beter/proper way?
  5. This is what I did: Extracted CD contents to D:\W2K3\W2K3 Extracted SP1 to: D:\W2K3\SP1 Extracted Boot files to: D:\W2K3\boot Then Executed: D:\W2K3\SP1\Update\Update.exe -s:D:\W2K3\W2K3\ENGLISH\WIN2003\ENT D:\W2K3\SP1\Update\Update.exe -s:D:\W2K3\W2K3\ENGLISH\WIN2003\STD D:\W2K3\SP1\Update\Update.exe -s:D:\W2K3\W2K3\ENGLISH\WIN2003\WEB Do I need to do anything else before cdimage to create the compacted image?
  6. 1) You mean having the source files on a computer with only 1 hard drive with one partition? This isnt possible, unless you dont want to reformat your drive (could possibly leave alot of junk). Using a boot disc (no other way with out using alternate windows/documents and settings/Program files directorys.) Delete everything but your I386 directory (preferibly on the root) Launch Setup. You can then install windows without formatting the drive. -- 2) Read This post: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?act=ST&f=70&t=9453 -- 4) Most companies relativly similar hardware and install the so

  8. I want to completlely integrate the Office 2003 SP1 package into my XP SP2 disc not just activate the msi intstall like i have seen done on some discs. I know the first thing i got to do is make a list of the files and registry entries that are required (by dissassembling the msi) What i am not sure on how to do is how i should go about packaging the files and registry settings for on the cd?
