SyntaxError's Achievements



  1. Yes I have. It doesn't produce a working ISO. Setup fails every time. What I haven't tried is a different tool or oscdimg.exe
  2. RT7Lite can't seem to make a working Win7 ISO. Windows Setup crashes every time. I'm not removing any components, only integrating updates and changing a few basic settings, like disabling some services. Nothing unattended either. Using build RT7Lite 1.7.0 on Win7 x64 Home Premium.
  3. I've got the crash bug when adding multiple update .msu files. I'm using version 0.5.0c on Win7 SP1 x64. I tried adding the .msu files one at a time, but it only allows one file period. Adding a second file causes the same crash. log.txt.zip
  4. Just an FYI, Intel has enabled AHCI with their latest chipset drivers, version No more need to manually enable the Microsoft generic sata driver. I had to manually update each component via device manager, as setup wouldn't do it for some reason. I have the G33/ICH9 chipset and it works fine. Someone probably already mentioned this, but I'm not going to read 13 pages to find out.
  5. Don't mean to be a pest, but the login issue still isn't fixed for me. Any ideas besides what's been given? I'm using Win7 x64 Home Premium and Firefox 3.6. Thanks. *I just edited the member_id cookie's expiration date to expire in 2 years, instead of seconds after it's created. Seems to work. Odd solution though.
  6. You can easily disable Bitlocker by simply setting the Bitlocker Drive Encryption Service to disabled and stopped. You could also stop and disable the TPM Base Services service as the Bitlocker service uses it for every mode except one.
  7. I'm having the login cookie issue as well with Firefox 3.6 on Win7 Home Premium x64. Above fixes about temp files and cache don't work. Haven't bothered trying IE.

    Nice find. Thanks.
  9. Grab a freeware copy of Alcohol 52% and the free mp3 plugin, and rip your protected cd directly to unprotected mp3 files. Audio Plugin can be downloaded from [url="http://www.free-downloads.net/programs/Alcohol_Audio_Converter"]http://www.free-downloads.net/programs/Alc...Audio_Converter[/url] Once installed select Device>Audio Converter Since you own the cd, it's not illegal to make a backup for personal use.

    Try using TeraCopy. It makes a huge difference as it uses it's own engine to get the job done, plus it's freeware. I can move 30gigs between 2 sata drives in about 5 minutes with it. http://www.codesector.com/teracopy.php
  11. Router placement can make a big difference. The house itself can also have an impact on signal strength, especially if the studs are steel. Placing the router as close to the center of the house and near the ceiling would be a good idea if possible. Make sure wireless adapter drivers are up to date. The type of antenna used on both the router and each client pc also makes a difference. There's omnidirectional and dipole antennas. With a dipole antennae, which most consumer level wireless gear comes with (far as I know), the signal is in the shape of a toroid, so the signal strength is best at right angles to the antennae, so all antennas should be pointed straight up. Here's what the toroid shaped signal would look like if you could see it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Elem-doub-rad-pat-pers.jpg With omnidirectional antennas, it doesn't matter which way they point, as the signal is a true sphere. Here's a few articles with more info and tips. http://compnetworking.about.com/cs/wireles...te_aprouter.htm http://www.quickonlinetips.com/archives/20...-router-signal/ http://www.microsoft.com/athome/setup/wirelesstips.aspx http://www.brighthub.com/computing/hardwar...cles/41022.aspx
  12. The WDM folder should be XP only. A great way to determine which of those folders you need is to extract the drivers from the same system using a tool like Driver Magician Lite. Then you just compare the extracted files with those of your driver packages. http://www.drivermagician.com/Lite.htm
  13. Did you enable the raid controller in the bios? Do the drivers install if you use F6?
  14. Access the bios and enable the onboard video. Once back in Vista with the onboard video's drivers installed, completely uninstall the HD3450 from device manager. Probably shouldn't remove Catalyst, as both video cards most likely use the same package. Then reboot, go into the bios and disable the onboard video. Vista should take it from there.
  15. I can't help with your tool, but I can tell you there are plenty of tools already available that do the same job, some free, some not. Also, you can't depend on the .inf file to get a complete file list of a particular driver. Most of the time you can, but not always. I'm pretty sure it was Nvidia's GeForce drivers awhile back that I discovered this with. I don't remember specific versions, but it was consistent across several consecutive releases. Think it was in the late 170.xx series. There was a single file not listed in the .inf that would get installed and without it, there would be errors. Don't remember the name of the file though, as it's been a long time since I've bothered working with drivers in that manner. I think my Realtek lan driver had the same issue as well.
