  1. This is a Vista SP1 disc with SP2 slipstreamed with Win Integrator. Here's the relevent section of my DISM.log I made an ISO and tested the disc out: SP2 is installed but none of the updates including IE9
  2. I am trying to integrate IE9 and many .msu files into the source of a Vista x64 WIM. I'm running this on a Win7x64 machine with the Win7 WAIK installed. Here's the contents of my batch file containing the commands. dism /mount-wim /wimfile:C:\WinVistax64\sources\install.wim /index:1 /mountdir:c:\wim dism /image:c:\wim /add-package /packagepath:C:\ie9\vistax64\ie9-Vista.cab for %%g in (c:\vistax64Updates\*.msu) do dism /Image:c:\wim /Add-Package /PackagePath:%%g dism /unmount-wim /mountdir:c:\wim /commit However when I run this bach file I get the following error message for each .msu file plus the .cab file: I've also tried to integrate the msu files using 7Customizer .5.0 and got the same results. Any ideas what's going on? I downloaded the msu files from Microsoft's site so they should be fine.
  3. I realize this is an old thread but I would like it if WPI allowed priorties: I'd like to install IE8 *before* Flash, Shockwave and Java, but also allow Flash, Shockwave and Java to install even if I don't want IE8, something dependencies in 8.0 doesn't seem to allow.
  4. I'm just wondering if how DriverGeek is coming. I'd love compatibility with Windows Vista/7 x64 and the latest driver packs for the NT6 line from driverpacks.net
  5. I just reinstalled Vista x86 on my system and I find myself really missing Vize. Has any more work been done recently on this app?
  6. Congrats! I hope we can get rid of wide-spread XP uglyness forever!
  7. No no, I think he/she is complaining about the "visual style" (look) of current XPizing. I've been using it since the 2.x days and I like the older look too. Unfortunately its seems pretty hard to find any of the old versions, except for the visual style/skin (MSSTYLES) which was the official one from Microsoft.
  8. I was working on a customer's XP Home machine the other day when I ran into activation. The user had provided me his original installation disc, this was a Dell Dimension 4500, and I had just prepared a stock OEM XP Home CD with SP3 slipstreamed though nlite. I had to enter the key on the case, I forgot completely about OEMBIOS! I got to thinking, would it be hard to make an XP Home disc that would contain the OEMBIOS data for a bunch of OEMs bypassing the need for activation? Ideally before Windows Setup starts it would prompt me for a manufacter, and then once I made a selection load the appropriate OEMBIOS files and install Windows normally. I read the first several pages of Multi Manufacturer Pre-Activation, OEMScan, and Building a Pre-activated CD from an existing installation but they're all too complicated. I've done a lot of work with nlite and I frequently integrate BTS driverpacks, but that's all the unattended work I've done. Could someone please write a guide/instructions on how to create, if its possible, this kind of disc? Thanks!
  9. XPero I agree with you about Vista but I hope that XPize doesn't die, there's all those Win2003 icons that havn't been patched
  10. I finally got Win2003 R2 from MSNAA and I need to install it soon in vmware for the LAN administration class I'm taking I've seen various threads on integrating Win2003 and SP2 and R2. I think I need to copy R2 files into the installation source so I tried that. I then used nlite to slipstream SP2 on top of that. Does all of this sound right? What about slipstreaming IE7? Thanks
  11. I used nlite 1.4 beta to create a new Win2003 disc. I created the ISO and tested it in Virtual PC 2007. So I was going to burn it to DVD. The total size is 853.44 MB. I got out my Verbatim DVD+RWs and tried to burn the ISO using nlite. It stopped. I got an error detailed only "hardware error 25600. Writing failed". This is under Windows XP Pro SP2 fully patched, 1GB RAM, Athlon-64 3500+, NEC ND3550A. I've burned many ISOs made in nlite on this drive using Nero but previous versions of nlite didn't have a burner built right in. I selected Direct burn and it seems to be burning... Correct: It did not burn, it just locked up
  12. I noticed there is the option in MPC to handle rstp:// links with a given handler but it doesn't do anything.
  13. So then I should install Real Alternative? I last tried it at the the beggining of the year and it didn't handle rstp:// links. Is it safe to install Real Alernative and the Vista Codec Pack or should I install Vista Codec Pack and then Media Player Classic?
  14. I'm trying to write a batch file that will silently install my apps for both XP and Vista. I have each app in a seperare folder. I've tried running: vcpack\vcpack.exe /qn But it extracts the installer, which runs and finally cancels saying that the proper way to install silently is to use /S /v/qn So I ran: vcpack\vcpack.exe /S /v/qn which did exactly the same thing. I even tried extracting the contents of the switchless installer you linked to. No matter how I run vcpack.exe I get an error that it "Could not delete output file".
  15. I've been trying various solutions to Real Player for some time. I like Real Alternative, and codec packs have been great for most kinds of media. But none of these players can handle an rstp:// link. They can play embedded Real media in Web pages, but not all Real media is embedded! Is there a player that can handle these streams, or some way to get an existing player to handle them?
  16. So then we might have an XPize for x64 soon.
  17. The problem appeared to be reading from the CD itself, only at that stage of setup, minus 27 minutes. I did get it to work: I created a new ISO and burned it to DVD with the BTS driverpacks integrated and a WINNT.SIF, with i368 copied to the root of drive c: via $OEM$ folders. For every prompt for the CD when I reached this error I had to manually answer to look in c:\i386 rather than d:\i386, about 6 times. I still have no idea why this happened only on this (real) machine. If it was a driver problem, the driverpacks should have resolved it (nvdia nforce 4 chipset). The drive continues to work fine. When I went back and installed some non-default Windows components I was prompted to insert the CD-ROM, I inserted the DVD and it worked fine.
  18. No, I made no changes. I just dumped the contents of my (non-bootable MSDNAA) CD to my hard drive and used nlite to make a bootable ISO.
  19. I thought it was a bad CD with a corrupt file, probably SP1.cab so I installed from the ISO in Virtual PC. It worked. So I burned a new CD and tried again. It got through most of the installation but it stopped at the minus 17 minutes point and prmpted me for the disc again. Goign to drive D: gives me an error. Same problem.
  20. Where would I get this SP1 tag file? I did try hitting cancel. And it worked! Windows does appear to be corrupt, Help and IE, and some other apps are missing. I also get an error at startup about a service unable to start. Whatever is causing this, those files seem to be very important.
  21. I'm sure this had come up many times but I've searched and got no hits... I'm installing Win2003 Server Standard R2, which has SP1 integrated onto the disc, I was able to get through most of setup, but now I get a message that prompts me to insert "Service Pack 1 CD-ROM". The path in the dialog box points to D:\i386 so I took the CD out and reinserted it. It doen't accept it. I inserted the R2 (labeled disc 2 of 2) into the drive, but that didn't work, as I expected. Clicking Browse and trying to select drive d: gives me an error that the drive is unavailable. It has an X through it in the list of drives. The drive is of course availalble, its been reading from the CD for the earlier portions of setup! Should I just download SP1 and burn it to a CD?
  22. nlite should do what you ask. Not all SATA drivers will slipstream properly. I ended up using BTS driverpacks to get my hard drive recognized, but they may take up a of space. You'll just have to stick a floppy drine in there and use the drivers on the floppy. A store-bought version of XP is no likly to contin the needed drivers or anything else than one you slipstream yourself. Its less so!
