  1. My Vista shows the taskbar at 30px, just like it is in XP
  2. That card should have come with a DVI to HDMI adapter. I would use that along with HDMI-HDMI 1.3a cable. Also, it should come with an S/PDIF audio cable that attachs to the spdif header on the motherboard(if one exists), thus making it possible to send sound across HDMI.
  3. If a 3rd party app can do it, then I should be able to do it without that application. Lots of other people seem not to have a problem doing the way I specified above, so I don't understand why it doens't work. If I run the command after windows has installed there is no problem. So it seems to be just a problem with it in SVCPACK
  4. I have never been able to get WMP10 to install. Everything else here installs fine, just not Media Player. Even if it is first listed, it still doesn't install. I always have WMP9 that starts up. Why? ;Windows XP [Version] Signature="$Windows NT$" MajorVersion=5 MinorVersion=1 BuildNumber=2600 [SetupData] CatalogSubDir="\i386\SVCPACK" [ProductCatalogsToInstall] [SetupHotfixesToRun] msiexec\WInstl31.exe /quiet /norestart WMP\mp10setup.exe /q:A /R:N /c:"setup_wm.exe /DisallowSystemRestore /NoPID /Q:A /R:N /P:#e" DirectX\dxsetup.exe /silent DirectX\RGB9RAST_x86.msi /qb /norestart MSIE\IE7-WindowsXP-x86-enu.exe /passive /update-no /no-default /norestart qchain.exe
  5. do what Sonic said and you will achieve what you are looking for.
  6. mbsacli 2.0 requires that the Window Update agent 2.0 be installed. Other than that, you need the latest security update catalog (wsusscan.cab). Use the /nd switch to keep from downloading anything. mbsacli /nd /nvc /wi /xmlout /catalog wsusscan.cab > scan.xml This will give me an xml report, but I can't do anything with it. The documentation says mbsacli has report switches, but I can't seem to use them: 1) you can't use them in conjunction with scanning switches, 2) I can't even run mbsacli without using the /xmlout switch
  7. OK, my bad - I was not explaining my problem thoroughly: the manual processing starts right at the beginning, as in my unattended file was not being read. Sure enough, I have it in the wrong directory. Fixed that and all the automation is now working. It still stops, though, when trying to format the partition. Still says disk is damaged, blah blah blah, install Windows on a different partition. Edit: I got it to work! My setup directory was called 'Windows XP Pro', so I tried removing the spaces from it, calling it 'WindowsXP_Pro'. Made the according change in txtsetup.sif, for the sourcepath: and viola! it worked.
  8. Tried this, results still the same. Where are these keywords documented?
  9. I have triple checked all my file changes and included my winnt.sif here. right now I am only testing out the XP install. When the install gets to the partitioning, everything becomes manual. then to top that off, when I walk through the process of deleting the partition and recreating it - it will not format it, saying the disk is damaged, etc. This is crap, because I have another unattended install (non multi-boot, only XP) that works beautifully on the same HDD. I don't know where to go.

  10. Yes, this could be refined to: for /L %i in (1,1,50) do ren 164__%i.jpg 164_%i.jpg
  11. I would say it has to do with the wildcard matching. Try using a variable for your number value of the file name and create a loop for the renaming.
  12. Download the Group Policy Management Console This will allow you full control over your GPOs and OUs. It also comes with many scripts to allow you to automate tasks such as importing, backups, creating GPOs, etc.
