  1. Hi and welcome to the forums http://www.ultimatewindowssecurity.com/Wik....ashx?Discuss=1 give this link a try and see if it helps you with your issue!
  2. as a work around i know you can change the extensions to .avi or .mpg to allow thumbnail previews for it, what codecs do you have installed? is ffdshow installed?
  3. the easiest way to hide it would be to setup a DFS replication and point the users to the DFS share say you create contoso.corp as your dfs root you can have your share on server1\software added to the DFS root now you can point your users to contoso.corp\software, effectively masking the server and actual share more on DFS http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003...fs/default.mspx
  4. which errors are you seeing, could you please add anymore information (when it happens, what are you working on etc,) the actual error numbers would also be good
  5. Hi and welcome to the forums when you go into add/remove programs, does it list DHCP as installed? if so what happens when you try to remove it? is there another machince there that has a server OS that could be a DHCP server in the iterm?
  6. IE8 is loaded by default, what version are you using and have you vlited your install at all? is IE8 available in your add/remove programs?
  7. Tri, have you thought of using the MDT (microsfot deployment Toolkit)? check out the features here - http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en
  8. remeber that because this is beta there is still verification code running, integrity checks might take a little longer. If it prevent corruption in my WIMs i'll take the extra 10 seconds Razor moon have you looked at moving from the $oem$ structure to a datawim? something to look into as i am sure $oem$ won't be around forever
  9. Dechy, which ATI driver packages are you trying to intergrate?
  10. so this was working before? did you notice when it stopped working? (after patches being applied, new software being installed?) any chance of new software or drivers on MSI's site for the camera or the buttons? anymore information you can give can help us help you
  11. Windows Presentation Foundation Support for customizing applications and most likely a starting point for customizing windows in the way you are looking for
  12. can you verify that your account has admin rights on the box, were there any errors logged in the event viewer

    Soooooooo Slow

    if you removed the bundled drivers windows update would just pull them down again, alos what other drivers would you use? vista drivers for low level devices (ie disk, ICHR etc ) are not going to work on 7. i would try cluberti's advice and try with the beta 7000 build and see if you run into the same issues.
  14. if you want to keep the same structure you are using now, install 2008 standard with Hyper-V. this will allow you to use your host OS (the physical machine) as the file server as you did before. While also being able to migrate all your VM's to hyperV
  15. installing drivers some the DVD would be tricky, like cluberti said there is no variable to that the unattend.xml file can use to discover your CD-Rom, you would need to hardcode a Drive letter (x: is the normal PE drive) then you could add an offline stage to use X:\<source of drivers>. Cons of doing this would be if the drive letter changes your drivers and possibly installation will fail. you can add driver files to any folder (besides boot) or create a folder for them in the DVD structure.
  16. driver signing requirements can be found here. http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/winlogo/drvsign/drvsign.mspx
  17. kingsman, look at the tutorial here Clean Windows Vista Install - No Activation needed { for OEM versions only }
  18. Can you please expain, what you meant by inputpath. Am trying to install server roles/features using xml unattendedly, but dont know how to install servermanager features using xml. I did copy and pasted the above scripts to my Autounattend.xml, but installation fails. Please help/advice Thank you a sample XML would be something like this <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> <ServerManagerConfiguration Action="Install" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sdm/Windows/ServerManager/Configuration/2007/1" xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"> <RoleService Id="FS-DFS-Namespace" /> <Feature Id="Backup" /> </ServerManagerConfiguration> looking at your code you don't have the ending </servermanagerConfiguration> tag. like most XML, you need to keep it properly represented with an ending tag for a matching start tag Another option is to use the MDT toolkit, they have an entire GUI interface to choose roles/feature that are available in 2008.
  19. well you have 2 option option 1: add the drivers to the DVD source prior to building the DVD, you can look through the WAIK help file, it is list as Phase 5: service an offline image, These steps will allow you to create and anwser file with all the packes you would like to intergrate into your image. that way you don't have to install them each time you use the image, or have a network location for accessing them option 2: like cluberti said, change the letter path to a network path and allow access for the image to update the installation duing install. this works great in a networked envirnoment but not so much if you only have one PC
  20. VSS is the volume shadow copy service that XP. Vista and 7 use to copy, move and back files that are in use, the service is normally set to a manual launch state and is started when another service or application calls it.
  21. you won't see much of a speed improvement by partitioning the disk into 2 partitions, (still has to manage the whole 100 gig) i would stick with the single partition just from the stance in a partition fials normally these days it is cause the disk is going bad, which means that all your partitions are dead but to each his own
  22. i don't believe that functionality is available in vista itself to backup to tape, you will need to find a 3rd party app that will allow you to back up to it
  23. please don't double post with the same issue, Have you actually verified that you have the latest drivers? find your chipset in device manager and go out to Intels website, download and install the latest drivers just to verify they are installd
  24. what kind of errors are you seeing in the event logs? is this an actual dial-up connection? or connecting over broadband?
  25. It also maybe worth while to download the Windows 7 WAIK which in fact has documentation on the WISM and all the related tools needed to service and manage a windows 7 image. i do like how they setup all the command for easy migration to powershell Windows Automated Installation Kit (Windows 7 Beta)
