  1. Can i use this program to shrink the visio source also? If not is there any way to shrink it besides using an sfx archive?
  2. I already have norton ghost so i will probably be using that, also how much does True image cost Hulk?
  3. Ive spent several days working on this self install of windows, and thought, would it be easier to set up my computer exactly how I want it, then use norton ghost to image it? Has anyone done this? Also, if I do that, would i have to re-register windows and install any programs or drivers?
  4. I tried making a new VHD and it didnt work, then I tried using the original XPCD and it recognized it. is it something with the boot sector of the cd?
  5. Oh by the way, i am testing this using a virtual pc. If that has anything to do with it
  6. I've been having a real problem with my unattended install. I can install windows, reboot as much as I want, until (at least what i think is until) i take the CD out of the drive, then when i try to restart i get NTLDR is missing Press any key to restart But it doesnt restart, it just repeats this message. I can't seem to figure out what this is. Anyone know?
  7. Speaking of OEM.... Stupid Q, but does anyone know what OEM actually stands for?? I mean i know the crap doesn't come with the retail box but does OEM stand for something like Open E..something.. Merchandise? But anyway ill get on making that sweet computer, i think the one i have now is pretty good for games and would be cheap. Asus 94c800 Deluxe P4 2.8 800mhz 9800 pro 1 gig Geil Golden Dragon Ram Dual Channel DDR 400 <- Want to replace any sugestions? 2 WD Raptors 35 gig SATA <- Pimpin sweet, these rule 2 WD 120 Gig Parallel for storage Antec Truepower 430 PSU Water Cooling Danger den blocks Eheim Pump Heater core from Ford probe i think... Ebay Case - Built from wood, PVC and scrap metal ~$45 Working on my new one if anyone's in to Moddin tell me dont feel like looking up the prices right now though
  8. Speaking of HL2 DM, anyone know what happened with Valves MP Map contest? I got fed up of playing DM because I couldn't find any maps worth playing. Anyone know some good ones?
  9. @Cartoonite - Thanks, tried it and it worked like a charm. Now I just need to find the thread about autologon for the administrator account and getting rid of the stupid Welcome screen.
  10. Well shoot me for trying to help. @Tsunami There isn't a HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx, your right... But there also isn't a HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx either because you have to create it. Which is what your RunOnceEx.cmd does. If it exists then your PC will run it when windows is started. it will then delete the key when its done running all commands inside of it. Also, I believe this could be the problem because any HKCU settings that are created in the T-12 stage of setup will be copied to any user that is created afterwards, meaning that when a new user is created they will have to run the RunOnceEx commands also. But, of course i only have what? 6 posts now? so thats why i said it was just a guess.
  11. Ive been trying to get my unattended install to auto setup a user for me, which it does fine. But when windows finished install it still asks me to enter User names. Anyone know a reg tweak that stops Windows from starting this screen? Or am i missing something in Winnt.sif? Heres my code: UserAccount.cmd net user NAME Pass /add net localgroup NAME /add net accounts /maxpwage:unlimited REGEDIT /S Autologon.reg EXIT Autologon.reg Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon] "DefaultUserName"="NAME" "DefaultPassword"="Pass" "AutoAdminLogon"="1" Winnt.sif [GuiUnattended] AdminPassword="PASS" EncryptedAdminPassword=NO OEMSkipRegional=1 TimeZone=020 OemSkipWelcome=1 Thanks, Dan
  12. Im just guessing but i think it has to do with your RunOnceEx.cmd. You probably used something like SET KEY=HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx When your supposed to use SET KEY=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx But I haven't tested that...
  13. Oh and I have been testing this install by using Virtual PC, also i have reformated every time I installed it. Im thinking maybe its the $OEM$ folder $$. Could that be possible?
  14. I just finished my first unattended install disc, however ran into a few problems. Every time i reboot, it gives the error: There is a file or folder on your computer called "C:\WINDOWS" which could cause certain applications to not function correctly. Renaming it to "C:\WINDOWS1" would solve this problem. Would you like to rename it now? I check in my computer but there is no folder named windows1 after i select to rename it. Any ideas what causes this?
