  1. Well i don't know how to set the description of the Computer but I took the above VBS file and edited it to return only one dialog. In my limited experience, the three items are either null or return the same value. (The three items i am talking about is: objSMBIOS.PartNumber, objSMBIOS.SerialNumber, objSMBIOS.SMBIOSAssetTag) So I basicly added some if tests to see if they had anything in them and if so, I set strSerial to whatever is in it.

    This is all great and all, but now that I have this vbs script, how do i use it to make the mostly automated install set what ever strSerial is to the computer name? Details are great and much appreciated.

    BETTER YET, I used compname.exe (do Google search) to accomplished this.





    Echo Changing computer name to the Dell Service Tag

    START "" /WAIT "compname.exe" /c ?s

  2. Hi people can anyone help me.......need Sil raid 3114r5 winxp 64bit drivers

    I have a gigabyte GA-K8NXP-SLI motherboard,Any help or advice would be appriciated.

    Could someone please send me the si3114r and si3114r5 driver that Dynaletik put

    on his ftp the link in his post doesnt work or has been moved :)

    I got the exact same m/b with two Hitachi 250gb SATAII HD configured with Raid 1. Here's where I download the SI3114r5 driver. Silicon Image Si3114 drivers

  3. So this is my problem  :D

    I have a windows XP pro 64 bit edition (With an official licence )

    I've tried to integrate the Si3114r5 drivers (which i've downloaded from microsoft)


    Where do you download the si3114r5 drivers? I've been looking for it in days..


    I found the link to the Silicon Image site for download at Silicon Image Si3114 x64 driver Download

  4. I'm trying to create a cd to run on Dell GX200s, 240s, and 260s. My first attempt, using the Intel chipset drivers (directly from them) got windows fully installed on the GX260, but the NIC died. Someone on the Dell forums suggested using their chipset drivers, but this causes the installation, after going through DOS mode and then through hardware detection, to reboot, then boot again, and reboot, over and over again. I've used both nlite 0.99.7 and 0.99.8, both give this same issue, and running the installation on a GX200 or through VirtualPC works completely fine. Does anyone else deal with these machines that might have some pointers?

    I have similar problem, but mind is rebooted just right after the "Installing Networks" completed. After two weeks of troubleshoot and a help of this forums, I found out that the problem was caused by the DUPLICATE computer name.

    When is yours reboot (T-30-32)? Try unplug your network cable and see if it helps.


  5. My question is.. if i wan to integrate this 2 cd into 1 cd.. is it possible?

    If i use nlite, can it be done? or i just nid to do some motification on the WINNT.sif and then copy the driver folder to the cd?

    Without SP1 and other HotFixes, you almost certainly can have both on the same CD. But because of SP1 and HotFixes, this is all I can I put on a CD. You may be able to fit more depend on what you choose.

    Here's my W2k3 post installation

  6. Is it possible that I change the "administrator" name/account (who has automatically created in a unattend file) renamed in "admin"?

    I must change this after every unattended installation (for exclusive applications) but I would like that automatically if it is possible.

    What you can do is use the BUILTIN.EXE from OptimumX.com. It works great. I have been using it a while.

    Put the builtin.exe in the $OEM$ directory.


    @echo off

    ECHO Modifying Boot Timeout
    START "" /WAIT "%SystemRoot%\system32\bootcfg.exe" /timeout 4

    ECHO Changing the Local Admin account
    START "" /WAIT "builtin.exe" /newname:WhatEverName



    This will be run at T-12


  7. Does anyone has any problem with Broadcom 57xx NIC with Unattended XP? Everytime I included in the $OEM$\Drivers\NIC, it cause the Windows setup to restart during the completion (T30-32) of Installing Network. I've tried both original drivers that came with GX280, download from Dell, and directly from Broadcom, and they act the same. I even tried the DriverPacks from btsunattended.net method 2, and it still restart after "installing Newtork".

    I even tried the same image on the machine without Broadcom NIC, it still does the same thing.

    Any suggestion? Please help, I've been struggling with this over a weeks already.

    If I removed the Broadcom NIC drivers or (not included nic path) OemPnPDriversPath="Drivers\nic1;Drivers\Chipset" from winnt.sif, the unattended setup is completed.


  8. If that file doesn't exist, the option to select it in wpi will not appear.

    Is there any way or how do I modify the boxes.js so that the option appears, but Dimmed out/lock the checkbox instead?

    Eventhough the condition is false, I still want it to display the option, but enable to check it so I can tell which applications had installed. If we make it disappears, then we wouldn't know what's available on the CD or what had or had not installed.

    NOTE: I have little knownledge of Javascript



  9. Add this line:


    If that file doesn't exist, the option to select it in wpi will not appear. You can combine multiple tests into one with && (and) and || (or). (dunno about the 'or', havn't tested it, but it should work  :rolleyes:


    This works if condition is true (enable if exist), but what if the condition is false. Another word, if exist do not enabled option. Can this be done?
