  1. Having since included a key in my 'RunOnceEx.cmd' to install an aplication, I now see this... I guess my small regtweak was being installed too fast for the window to be seen. The command windows that appear briefly... can I assume that 'cmdow.exe' isn't doing what it says on the box?
  2. Yes... this is how it used to work for me but I've made so many changes recently that I'm not sure how to wind back. I'm wondering if it may be because I'm using Firefox and the 'Flashgot' extension. Oh well... maybe I'll start by winding Flashget back a few versions.
  3. From Flasget help... I have this option set to 'Auto Rename' but if ever I try to download an updated version of a prog that has the same filename as a previous version, already download with Flashget, I'm always presented with this dialog... ... and no matter which option I choose, the original file awlays gets overwritten. Even if I rename the download here... ... the new dowload is renamed but still overwrites the original. Has anyone else seen this behavior and have a fix for it, or does anyone know for which previous version of Flashget this works? Cheers.
  4. [slapForhead]****... being a noob I shoulda known that! [/slapForehead]
  5. I find the easiest way to deal with this is to create a virtual drive with something like Alcohol, mount your image to that drive then use that virtual drive as the cdrom within vmware. No need to mess with dis/connecting but you do need to shutdown vmware when swapping images in the virtualdrive. HTH.
  6. I have made a working basic 'RunOnceEx from CD' iso that creates administrator and autologon accounts and installs a few regtweaks. During setup I notice a couple of command windows briefly appear around T-13(T-12.5), but I dont see the "Installing Applications" window during setup. Example from how-to guide... It's not that it's a problem as such, just that I thought I'd see it around the time my regtweaks are imported. My uA setup...

  7. You have to have at least one admin account. Look here for info.
  8. My regtweaks.reg Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [1] [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International\Geo] "Nation"="242" [2] [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Keyboard Layout\Preload] "2"=- [3] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer] "Max Cached Icons"="2000" [4] [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced] "EnableBalloonTips"=dword:00000000 "FolderContentsInfoTip"=dword:00000000 "StartButtonBalloonTip"=dword:00000000 "ShowInfoTip"=dword:00000000 [5] [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\tips] "Show"=dword:00000000 1 & 2 work but 3,4 & 5 dont. I tried searching for a solution and found this link... http://unattended.msfn.org/xp/hkcu_registry.htm I don't think leads where it should but I know some some areas of the guide are currently unavailable. Anyone set me compass please?
  9. Forgot to mention I'll also be moving the page file and didn't even consider the Installers. I think I'll plumb for the 3gig option. Thanks again.
  10. Thanks XM. Hope you get good rest. p.s. What minimum partion size should I allow for c:\ if I install progs and docs elswhere?
  11. FeTT!... You are a STAR, may the force be forever with you Thank you.
  12. I'm sending 'prog files' and 'docs & settings' to different drives and want to ensure that I don't screw up on the drive letters. Should I expect not to see all physical drives? I just assumed that I would see a screen similar to that in the first image.
  13. [quote name='kmf' date='Aug 30 2004, 12:50 AM']Am I the only one here that uses DC++? [right][post="178995"][/post][/right][/quote] Nope! BCDC++ being choice of client though. Azureus for bittorrent but I lost interest in torrents after Supernova took a dive. Anyone know of any good sources for tv series (specially Enterprise )?
  14. This is what I see when performing a clean install on my box... Sorry about the quality but you can just make out 3 drives, the first has 1 pimary extended with 2 logical partitions. Trying to emulate this with VMware... (Formating and partitioning with PowerQuest8) I see this (only 2 physical drives)... when performing a clean install on the VM even though all 5 drives are present after installation. Is this just a VMware 'thing' or am I missing something? Cheers.
  15. So could it be said that AutoPartition=0 equates to "omit the AutoPartition entry from the answer file" giving rise to "If you do not set the value, text-mode Setup installs Windows on the partition where $WIN_NT$.~LS is located."? edit: Just re-read... "If you remove this line or if you put AutoPartition=0 then setup will ask you on which partition you wish to install Windows onto and advises you what to do if your partition already contains an OS."
  16. According to the how-to guide... According to ref.chm... No reference to value = 0. Can anyone clarify this for me please?
  17. Can we kick some life back into this thread please... I'm trying to attain similarly what LanfreeDJ is asking, that is to format C: to NTFS (irrelevant of whether Windows exist or not) without damaging any other partitions on the drive, all without manual intervention. @LanfreeDJ... Did tguy's example work for you? @tguy... "FileSystem-ConvertNTFS"... should that read "FileSystem=ConvertNTFS"? @Nanaki... "Shouldn't AutoPartition be on 'Yes'"... should that read "Shouldn't Repartition be on 'Yes'"? @durex... I also read elswhere in the forum that this can't be attained with a basic uA and that perhaps this is the one step that should be manualy processed to avoid undesirable results... but it would be nice to have it confirmed. Cheers all.
  18. Yup, already figured that for the quotes but the spaces were a bit of an unkown quantity. Thanks for the clarification.
  19. From my WINNT.SIF... [Unattended] blah KeyboardLayout="United Kingdom" [RegionalSettings] InputLocale = 0809:00000809 InputLocale_DefaultUser = 0809:00000809 Language = 0809 LanguageGroup = 1 SystemLocale = 0809 UserLocale = 0809 UserLocale_DefaultUser = 0809 I still get the Language icon appearing on the taskbar and I think it's because of this... Can I remove the default 'English [united States]' in uA fashion? Thanks.
  20. I often see examples like... Variable.x = something AND Variable.y=something Are the spaces required in some instances and not others? Thanks.
  21. Recently produced a successful xp cd slipstreamed with sp2 and now look forward to buggin you all with my noob questions regarding unattended installation. Cheers.
