    John L. Galt Actualy I statred in unix systems. I like linux but rarely mess with it now. Too many distobution flavors and poor mainstream support. Feel free to share your work and ideas. Nuhi, How are you ? Whats the news on windows 7 7lite ??? Not much progress here. 18months ago I invented the first method to move the ?:/user folder. See above Now I have to do it for Windows 7 x64. Ohhh the fun of beta testing. MRGCAV@gmail.com
  2. I was looking to do something similar. To partition a blank drive into sevewral partitions prior to installing vista but part of the vista installation process. I am not a programmer. But I suspect a batch file using fdisk or EFdisk could be contained within an autoattend.xml file. It should work but is not an efficient method. also http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=129534 MRGCAV@Gmail.com

    NEW Vista Project

    Can anyone tell me how and what tools I need to integrate 3rd party apps into Vista? First I will slim vista down using Vlite. THEN I want to add Firefox, Winwar, Vmware, Perfectdisk and Spysweeper etc... to the Windows Installation & ISO installation DVD. MRGCAV@gmail.com
  4. I was reading the vlite history... vLite 1.1.6 beta - SP Slipstream Important notes: - slipstreaming x64 SP from x86 host is not supported, you need x64 host I have searched the forums and found nothing. Has the new vLite 1.2 RC addressed this ? I have Vista X64 Ultimate. I have a Gateway GM5424 x86 machine. What are the current requirements ? Can I use Vlite to dissect and slipstream Vista X64 Ultimate on a x86 machine ? Or do I absolutely need a x64 machine to slipstream a Vista x64. MRGCAV@gmail.com
  5. I have a Intel 945GNT based Server (By DG Systems) I bought used. I have no info on it, except a build sheet. I intend to install Windows Server 2008 on it. It is setup for a SATA RAID array between two drives. i found some info on the Intel website about /raid setup: www.intel.com/.../cs-020811.htm#sysreq and www.intel.com/.../cs-020811.htm#drivers The BIOS is configured for RAID using the Matrix Storage Manager before I got the unit. Problem; The SATA raid array and the hard drives are not detected in the BIOS. BIOS States: "NO HARD DISK DRIVE" So I found this not on the Intel website; "When
  6. I suggest you rearrange the order in which you create a complication. Current order is: 1. Service packs 2. Hotfiixes, Addons & update packs 3. Drivers 4. Remove Components 5. Unattended 6. Options 7. Tweaks 8. Bootable ISO I suggest you install the Drivers last. This way one could create a base copy and use it with different drivers. The base copy would contain all the Service packs, options and tweaks. But the final copy would only contain the necessary drivers. This would reduce complication time significantly. 1. Service packs 2. Hotfiixes, Addons & update packs 3. Tweaks 4. Remo
  7. I have a fully working gateway Vista ultimate desktop Computer. I can use Nero to burn DVD'S but nlite will not detect my DVD drive ? When I finish my compilation, the Device and burn speed is grayed our on the "bootable ISO" page. I uninstalled and reinstalled the most recent version nLite v1.4.5. No Change. The only thing I can do is to make an iso file and burn with Nero. Experienced as I am in computers, nero is too complicated with too many options. Anyway please help. I must be doing something wrong. Stumped nLite v1.4.5 works fine on my XP computer. Anyone got any ideas ? MRGCAV@Gmail.
  8. Hello, I need a little help. I have used Nlite before with limited success. But had to make a customized disk for each machine I have. I am trying to create ONE bootable XP DVD that contains XP SP3, Internet Explorer 8 (or at least IE7), Firefox Addon, Winrar Addon, & AVG Addon, Optional Windows Vista Themes, All updates and all the drivers for all my machines. I particularly have problems with integrating HP drivers using Nlite. The part I need help with is to separate the data types onto separate partitions or physical drives. I know Nlite can specify the "Programs files" partition.

  11. I was able to move the Vista Programs file folder with limited success. I have Vista Ultimate 32bit. 1. I removed my Vista hard drive and connected it via USB to my XP machine. 2. I copied all Vista C:\Program files to F:\Program Files using XXCopy. Also burn a copy to a CD. 3. I compared copies for size and content to make sure they were identical. 4. I reinstalled the Vista Hard drive on the Vista machine. 5. I created a restore point. 6. I installed Resplendant registar v5.50 on the vista machine. (You can use regedit too, but its much harder). 7. In safe mode, Using the

    How to relocate the entire USER folder in Vista. http://channel9.msdn.com/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=192697 Posted April 7, 2007 Comments(36) Here lies my experience moving my entire User Profile folder structure, including Default, Public, and any local users. In my search for a solution, the only two easy ways I found to move the user profile directory locations from the system drive is to 1. Set the User Profile folder during setup using an unattended install file. 2. Move the individual folders inside your user profile, which can be done using explorer (which will update the registry keys HKE

    jamieo, I respect your opinions. A little about me. I am a Computer engineer (with a masters degree). I have worked on mainfrain systems for the last 25 years. I mess with windows for fun and to correct Microsofts flaws. 6-10 partiotionis not alot. It is better to have more than less partitions on the same physical hard drive. I prefer FAT32 for for data recovery reasons. Vista with its NTFS only partition was VERY STUPID MICROSOFT ! My usual XP partitions are, 1. Booting 400MB 2. OS1 XP Pro SP2 15,000MB 3. OS2 XP Pro SP2 Copy 16,000MB 4. OS3

    Nuhi, You are doing a great job with nlite and now vlite. Where can I get a step by step document on both nlite and vlite ? Vlite suggestions: I like to partition my computers (laptop HP DV6000t) onto 6-10 partitions and seperate my programs from my documents, temp files, Page file, Backup, OS1,OS2,OS3 etc... so when windows crashes I can just recopy my windows folder from my backup partition to my OS partition. Anything you can do to help with creating the multipul partitions during installation would be great. 1. Include a "add/remove programs" shortcut. 2. Ability to unpack/extract c
