  1. Anyone knows how to make the active drive (the one that has the OS booted) become drive C? Like before I had Vista on C and XP on D (if I'm using vista). When I booted to XP, the XP drive became C and Vista drive became D. But now (after a new reinstallation), they stay the same regardless what OS I boot into. Why is that?
  2. Thanks for the reply. But I think I'll stick with pyron or autoit method, much simpler .
  3. As I understand, this method just installs drivers after the first logon into windows, right? So, it's later that the other 2 methods? Because I want my windows to look nice when I first login (having graphic driver installed already), can this method do that?
  4. By saying that this method supports RAID drivers, do you mean that you don't need to do anything at the "press F6..." stage? Does it work with nvidia nf680 raid (if anyone happens to know)? And is there anything that this method can/cannot do while pyron's method cannot/can do?
  5. Seems to be the same error: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showto...pid=443833&st=0
  6. Besides the creation of drives, you should also check that all the drives that you use (D & E) are formatted, 'cause windows setup cannot automatically format those 2 drives for you (should manually do it).
  7. In the guide, it says, "RunOnceEx can be used to replace [GuiRunOnce] completely. They will both run at the same time". But "The GuiRunOnce section is where you set the paths to batch files that run when Windows XP Setup has finished. These batch files run when the Admin account (or your own user account) is logged in" and "RunOnceEx: we will need to import the registry keys during GUI-mode of Windows Setup by using cmdlines.txt which executes a series of commands during the T-12 minute stage of Windows XP Setup". So, at T-12 cmdlines executes all other commands and saves RunOnceEx for after the first log in?
  8. [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\Command Prompt Here\command] @="cmd.exe /k cd %1 "
  9. EDIT: seems that RunOnceEx can do the trick
  10. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...1&Product=winxp Did you create all corresponding drives (C, D, E) in your virtual machine? If not, try changing your Documents & Settings folder to the same drive that you install windows on (for virtual machine only, of course). It would work on real machine, however.
  11. Is there any way to separate HKLM and the others? EDIT: got it. Seems a bit time-consuming. First I choose HKLM tweaks, save as 1 reg file. Then, choose the rest ...
  12. Thanks . I see many options in this GP settings. Will learn more about it.
  13. How do I disable other users' ability of changing some settings like "Folder Options" and "Display settings" and stuff. I can't seem to find how to do that.
  14. Sorry for the word, not really "many", just "some" As far as I go (intermediate), I've found the following: _ In the OOBEINFO.INI Method of creating user accounts, the INI file should be placed in "$OEM$\$$\system32\oobe" instead of just "$OEM$\$$\system32". _ In the "Drivers via CD -> Prepare Windows Source files" section, the file SETUP.EX_ should be extracted from I386 folder, not the source folder. I'll add more if I find one. _ In the reg tweaks section (which is giving error now), you can give the link to the 2 threads about this Part 1 Part 2 And the Utility
  15. At T-39 my setup doesn't have a progress bar either. But just wait a little more till about T-35 or T-30 it will appear.
  16. OK, thanks. I'm still waiting for someone to come up with a slideshow of winntbbu
  17. Hi websee, I haven't tried yet but I see in the picture you posted it's just a part of the screen. What variable do I need to change to make it expand to the whole screen? Like in this picture: Do the pictures in the slideshow has to be in the same format as described in the section about WINNTBBU.DL_? Thanks in advance.
  18. Anyone has trouble with the license thing? When I go to the cinemanow (on the top right corner where it has napster, musicmatch...), wmp10 cannot get a license to view the trailers. This doesn't happen with my attended windows.
  19. I just began to make an unattended cd not long ago, and most of the time I look at the guide on the homepage, because it is organized. But after encountering some problems, and having it solved through the forum, I find that the guide has many mistakes in it, they are misleading to beginners. So anyone of you admins here can update that guide? So fewer of the questions like mine will be asked on this forum (partly caused by the guide), and it saves time too. Just a little request, I know you are all busy. Thanks again for the great tutorials and tips.
  20. Thanks for the tip. I used WinPE and was able to see the log. Turns out that it's the duplicate computer name that causes the problem. Sorry benners, you were right , didn't check the network . It seems that in these installations, setup reads winnt.sif on the harddrive? Cause it doesn't help when I replace the winnt.sif on the cd.
  21. All the **** is normal characters that I replaced. Computer name is unique and not similar to anything (username...). I guess I have to check each part then
  22. Oh crap This new version has this preset thing, it confuses me :P I'm not gonna use it anyway, since someone has said nLite + your pack = hang
  23. I have this weird problem. The setup automatically reboots when it finishes installing network (about T-30). And when setup restarts, it keeps rebooting at that point. I don't use nLite, no Reg Tweaks. I integrate hot fixes manually from Ryan's pack, use Pyron's method to install drivers, and BTS's WMP10 slipstreamer. I change the billboard screen by the one I found here. My Winnt.SIF: (still use $OEM$ folder to copy some files to harddrive) ;SetupMgrTag [Data] AutoPartition=0 MsDosInitiated="0" UnattendedInstall="Yes" AutomaticUpdates=1 [Unattended] UnattendMode=FullUnattended OemSkipEula=Yes OemPreinstall=Yes UnattendSwitch="yes" TargetPath=\WINDOWS FileSystem=* UnattendSwitch="yes" WaitForReboot="No" KeyboardLayout="US" OemPnPDriversPath="Drivers" DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore NonDriverSigningPolicy=Ignore [GuiUnattended] AdminPassword=********* EncryptedAdminPassword=Yes OEMSkipRegional=1 TimeZone=20 OemSkipWelcome=1 [Display] AutoConfirm=1 [UserData] ProductKey=************ FullName="*******" OrgName="******" ComputerName=******* [TapiLocation] CountryCode=1 AreaCode=*** LongDistanceAccess="*" [RegionalSettings] LanguageGroup=1 [Identification] JoinWorkgroup=****** [Networking] InstallDefaultComponents=Yes [Components] msmsgs=off msnexplr=off zonegames=off [Shell] DefaultStartPanelOff = Yes
  24. Do you use 0.99.9beta (the latest)? When I choose Integrate hotfixes, the import wizard just lets me choose *.inf (the type of files box has only "Presets (*.inf)), so Ryan's pack doesn't appear in the list.
