  1. It worked, however, it isnt doing what I had planned. It's naming the adminstrator account "User", but I still get the screen to add users. What I wanted to do is have it create a user named User and make it have admin privleges. Any ideas? thx.
  2. kenneth, i'll try that out when i get home this evening, thanks. also, do you know how this add user thing gets launched? i dont have anything in the GUIRUNONCE which launches any of these files. is one of these files run automatically by windows because of their file names?
  3. I went into the windows xp that i have installed on vmware, and ran a search for user.cmd, and it doesnt find it. When I had run the installation, now that i think of it, i dont remember it ever pausing after executing user.cmd. This would indicate that it never even ran the file. Somewhere, in the chain of batches and commands, user.cmd isnt being called upon. I'll look this over, and re-read through the old posts again. :/
  4. Ive read and re-read and searched all over this board and still am managing to screw up the code to add a user. I did see a few others having problems too and I even saw webmedic's inf template (http://board.MSFN.org/index.php?showtopic=8632), but that .inf thing frankly, just freaks me out. It doesnt look anything like what I started with using the original steps in the tutorial. I just want to add an account named user, and it never works when i test in with vmware. Sorry for what I am sure is to be a redundant newbie problem. This is what I have done: winnt.sif ;SetupMgrTag [Data] Au
  5. From the guide: http://www.MSFN.org/unattended/xp/gettingstarted.htm ..........you want to install extras such as the drivers, applications, hotfixes and such, then create the following directories in the XPCD folder: C:\XPCD\$OEM$\$1\install\ C:\XPCD\$OEM$\$1\drivers\ So, that is what I did. I do have OEMPreinstall=YES.
  6. After waiting 39 minutes for xp to finish installing on VMware, i get to these errors: "Cannot find C:\install\main_batch.cmd" "Cannot find C:\install\hotfixes.cmd" "Cannot find C:\install\applications.cmd" Inside my winnt.sif (which is placed in the I386 folder), the relevent section looks like this: [GuiRunOnce] %systemdrive%\$OEM$\$1\$INSTALL\main_batch.cmd %systemdrive%\$OEM$\$1\$INSTALL\hotfixes.cmd %systemdrive%\$OEM$\$1\$INSTALL\applications.cmd Inside my "TEST.ISO", the structure is as follows: WXPFPP_EN -$OEM$ | --$1 | --$DRIVERS --$I
  7. Just curious as to what the dollar and percent sign do when attaching them to folder or path names, i.e. $INSTALL, or $1, and also %SYSTEMDRIVE% . I faithfully have followed the guide like a good monkey, without understanding parts of it. (I did do a quick search on google on this, but too much VBS and other stuff popped up). Anyone have a nice link that describes these things to noobs? Also, Im almost finished with my XP_CD and am trying to understand how I am supposed to extract my winrar (SFX) file with all of my apps in it when installing. I searched through this forum for "unrar.exe" an
  8. Regarding the Santa Cruz Sound Card....................... AaronXP, thank you for your suggestions. (I tried Auto-It, with no success) I did however find my "old" original CD that came with my Santa Cruz card and after a look inside I found the UNATTEND.EXE file. The CD is 599MB and loaded with crap, so I made a new folder and copied over only the things in it I thought I might need to install the drivers with the UNATTEND.EXE file. I trimmed it down to 25MB, and then winrar'd it down to 21MB. Good enough.
  9. My experience level so far is that Ive created a slipstreamed SP1 CD that works, and now am in the process of creating the Unattended Install portion. (Have most of it finished). I've tested different switches (none seem to work) and am having trouble finding out the command line switch options for: Turtle Beach Santa Cruz sound card Nero MPEG 2SVCD.EXE plug-in Webroot's Spysweeper I am a little confused on how to identify installer packages still. Some installers seem not to react to any of the switches that Ive tried from the Install Types page (http://www.MSFN.org/unattended/xp/application
