  1. Does that method actually work with windows??? By doing this does the file header not read as a zip file. A proper method would be to use something like Tugzip that will create a cab file by Right click on folder -> Add to ..... -> change the file type to cab Or Right click on folder -> Add to xxx.cab where xxx is the folder name. I prefer to open the folder and select all the files, right click and add to cab. That way you dont have the folder when extracting (eliminates a folder within a folder scenario)
  2. Ok to answer your question about using a DVD. Nlite your source, then use it as a base for an unattended install (like the guide). Add all the software you would like (as in the guide or using the RVM Add-ons) then use cdimage or mkisofs to create the ISO (making sure to add the bootable option and bootfile in the commandline options). Then burn the ISO like you would a cd. Works perfectly for me, never had a problem (and yes that with a 550MB base install. Some people like more software installed slipstreamed than others do Add codecs, Adobe Acrobat, CdBurnerXP..... it soon makes the image large)
  3. you still havent specified what kind of key you are trying to discover. You mention encryption (thats why i gave the first post) thats only one use of a key, as electroglyph said keys are used in gaming (or in other software) to allow you to install or to run a program. If we knew the context then we might be able to help more
  4. Snadboy's Revelation but only useful for reading behind the asterik. Drag the cross-hairs over the password box
  5. Are you trying to recover a second key from the first or are you just trying to generate keys. If its the latter then the answer to your question its called brute force password generation. Not going to provide links but if you search the web. There are alot of programs that can do this, but its a time consuming method of breaking encryption. If its the first one then your out of luck. Unless the encryption algorithm is totally insecure you cannot find any similarity between keys (like public key, both keys are generated using complex algorithms but neither can be derived from the other).
  6. By inserting my own punctuation i assume you meant this Unattended cds work from boot-up, not from withing windows. If installing from within windows (like an upgrade etc) the cd will still work but wont install unattended, it will prompt you for all the info it needs.
  7. Try here This is from the unattended guide (but it can also be used for attended installs)
  8. Instead of coying the entire file using the OEM folder why not extract it or copy it using the runonce.cmd file? Then leave it on the disk in another directory (does it have to be copied or can it just be extracted?)
  9. MizzThang - With RAID you physically have 2 drives, but in MS it appears as 1. If you want the details explaination go here. Most computers don't use RAID as its overkill for a desktop system. The rason i said to use Bashrats packs is because its alot eaier than trying to slipstream the individual drivers yourself. I was giving you the baby-steps, as there is alot of info on this forum and others that tell you how to add the driver packs using nlite. As i said its not that easy to just guess if you are using RAID or not, and the BIOS may say you have RAID enabled but cant tell if you are actually using it. The only easy way is to check the device manager in administrator tools (Control Panel->Administrator Tools->Computer Management->Device Manager) By using nlite and Bashrats packs you dont need to worry if you have RAID or not, it will install all the required drivers for you.
  10. if you already have the 3 files on the disk, then doing xcopy *.* f:\ /D This will only copy the files that have been changed (it comapres the timestamp of the files then copies the most up to date)
  11. A DLL is essentially a library of compiled functions that allow the creator to add more functionality to windows, their progra or another resource. Usually to create a DLL you are required to create a file of such functions in a language like C, C++, Delphi or some other compiled language (Java is not compiled, and as far as im aware cannot be used to create a DLL). Once this DLL is created you then have to add the functionality to the resource by telling it to call the DLL. This means if you wanted to get windows to use your DLL you would have to add code to tell it to use your DLL. The only way of creating a DLL that does not require moddifying the OS/resource is to replace an existing DLL (e.g. copying all the functionality of he old DLL into your new one, adding your functionality etc then naming your DLL the same name as the old DLL). If you just require to change the icons used then use a program like resource hacker or resource tuner to replace the icons in the dll. Sorry for the long explanation, but I believe in sharing all the information I can
  12. It would be hard to tell just from the information given if you are using RAID or not. The simplest solution for you would to make a slipstream release with Bashrat's Driver packs. Using nlite you can add these with little problems (and there are lots of examples of this on this site). To manually do this you would have to edit some windows files (dosnet.inf and txtsetup.inf as far as i remember) and add a line in the drivers section for the new drivers you would like installed.
  13. Its hard to show in a digital form (its easier with paper and pen). Basically he borrows 2 from the next number up, then pays back in his subtraction. Because you can only deal with so many bits, the MSB finally gets lost. e.g with 4 bits 0000 - 0001 = 1111. because 0000 - 0001 --------------- he borrows from the bit above, (as its 2 times larger, you get 2 bits) so 20202020 - 0001 1111 --------------- 1111 (2-1=1, then pay back a 1 in the next column. The 1 in the next column is equal to 2 in the current column. This is because you have 23222120 keep on borrowing and subtracting till you hit your limit and the upper bit is lost) He constantly borrows and pays back till the bit limit is reached. Then the upper most subtraction is lost. If you try it with a calculator you get the same answer.
  14. Yes its possible, its a Multiboot DVD. Firstly look at Ultimate Boot CD for 1 and 2. They use something like a FreeDOS boot disk with the software insatlled to allow the functionality required. 3 would require something like **** Small Linux added to the cd, 4 is a normal Unattended install. These would all be accessed from a bootable menu (like isolinux, cdshell etc). Option 5 would only work from the a custom setup.exe on the cd, adding it as the autorun (like on a normal wondows cd). The information on adding these is in the Multiboot part of the forum, and there are a few methods for doing this. Part 5 is only available from GUI and would probably be done in a custom autorun exe on the disk
  15. you can also create cab archives with tugzip and other archivers
  16. yes. If you are creating an unattended cd you can 1) Place the cd key in the winnt.sif file. This will be the only cd key used (no prompt) 2) Have no cd key in the winnt.sif file, and prompt the user 1) is the only fully unattended option, as it doesnt ask for the key
  17. RJARRRPCGP~ Thanks Did you not see my post after taht suggesting FreeDOS and NTFS tools? Some of us havent slept this week, and will sometimes forget that DOS 6 only supported FAT16. The only reason i suggested DOS 6.22 was it was the last version of real MS DOS. I did say which doesnt restrict you to using MS DOS, this includes PC-DOS, FreeDOS etc.
  18. Ah!!!! i forgot that some people like using NTFS just to make life difficult for those who have to fix it I think that there are a few NTFS utility disks around that use FreeDOS, maybe one of them would help. But using a BartPE disk might help, since it loads to RAM and should allow access to the files on the HD
  19. did you try installing Unlocker. I have had problems with XP locking the file as soon as it boots (as there is no real version of DOS in XP, just an emulated version, you cannot boot to DOS to delete files without XP locking some files). By using unlocker most of the "locked" files can be deleted. Other than that i would suggest maybe a DOS 6.22 (or other version of real DOS) boot disk and delete from there.
  20. My first computer was given to me by my dad in 1984,. a ZX Spectrum 48k. It wasnt a bad machine, programming in BASIC and a tape drive containing the data. (I was only 4 at the time )
  21. Mikhus~ Just a hint, read what was requested before replying
  22. Sorry was totally asleep when i typed the above. As Yzowl has stated you need to be more specific on what you are looking for
  23. dont know if this will work, its just a thought @echo Off title MakeCab all files in current directory FOR %%L IN (DIR /S /B *.*) DO makecab %%L /L /D CompressionType=LZX /D CompressionMemory=21 ".\Cab" exit
  24. I assume you mean how can you see what regoistry keys are added or modigied by an installer. Use a program like InstallRite, InstallWatch or the monitoring facility in the installers programs (Installshield and other installers allow you top monitor an install so you can repackage it)
