  1. This happened as soon as we loaded the OC.bat, also the custom background would also seem to disapear not completely but partialy wherever the menu was loaded.  I wish I still had a build to show you.  Anyhow attached is a text version of a sample that should work.  Run it from a ram drive.

    I had the same issue with the custom background until I disabled the wallpaper within the bb style I was using. I'll check the VB & let you know what happens.

    # My wallpaper keeps changing when I change styles! Why? How do I stop it?
    Each style can contain a directive entitled rootCommand: . This directive changes your wallpaper to something choosen by the style author (or added/modified by you) to give a more consistent feel to the desktop. BB4Win uses the programs bsetroot.exe and bsetbg.exe to set your desktop.
    To stop this from happening you have 3 approaches:

      1. Comment out the rootCommand: in each stlye. (Add a ! or # at the begining of the line in the style file)
      2. Delete bsetroot.exe and bsetbg.exe
      3. Move the bsetroot.exe and bsetbg.exe into a differant folder (It only works if it's in the same folder as Blackbox.exe)

  2. Which version of PE do you use it on, and what version of BB4win, we ran into severe issues with it, i.e. VBS scripting onload would crash the shell.

    I'm using Windows PE 2004, I don't load it as the shell though, I runt it from startnet.cmd after a cmdow @ /hid. If it crashes the cmd windows pops back up. I haven't run any vbs scripts as I haven't had the need to. Send me a PM with something to test & I'd be happy to try it out.

    path %PATH%;%SYSTEMDRIVE%\tools
    set RAMDRV=Z:
    set RAMAPPS=X:\apps
    set TEMP=z:\temp
    md %TEMP%
    for %%i in (%RAMAPPS%\*.rar) do UNRAR x %%i %RAMDRV%\
    cmdow @ /HID
    %RAMDRV%\blackbox\blackbox.exe -nostartup
    cmdow @ /VIS

  3. I just use shortcut.exe to make my shortcuts during application installs.


    Shortcut [Version 1.10]

    Creates, modifies or queries Windows shell links (shortcuts)

    The syntax of this command is:

    shortcut /F:filename /A:C|E|Q [/T:target] [/P:parameters] [/W:workingdir]
            [/R:runstyle] [/I:icon,index] [/H:hotkey] [/D:description]

    /F:filename    : Specifies the .LNK or .URL shortcut file.
    /A:action      : Defines the action to take (C=Create, E=Edit or Q=Query).
    /T:target      : Defines the target path and file name the shortcut points to.
    /P:parameters  : Defines the command-line parameters to pass to the target.
    /W:working dir : Defines the working directory the target starts with.
    /R:run style   : Defines the window state (1=Normal, 3=Max, 7=Min).
    /I:icon,index  : Defines the icon and optional index (file.exe or file.exe,0).
    /H:hotkey      : Defines the hotkey, a numeric value of the keyboard shortcut.
    /D:description : Defines the description (or comment) for the shortcut.

    - Any argument that contains spaces must be enclosed in "double quotes".
    - If Query is specified (/A:Q), all arguments except /F: are ignored.
    - To find the numeric hotkey value, use Explorer to set a hotkey and then /A:Q
    - To prevent an environment variable from being expanded until the shortcut
      is launched, use the ^ carat escape character like this: ^%WINDIR^%

      /f:"%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\My App.lnk" /a:q
      /f:"%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Notepad.lnk" /a:c /t:^%WINDIR^%\Notepad.exe /h:846
      /f:"%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\Notepad.lnk" /a:e /p:C:\Setup.log /r:3

    An argument of /? or -? displays this syntax and returns 1.
    A successful completion will return 0.

  4. Perhaps I should have been more descriptive in my previous posts :P sorry.

    Network Setup:

    NIC 1: SMC EZ Card 10/100 PCI (SMC1211TX) -

    NIC 2: D-Link AirPlus DWL-520+ Wireless PCI Adapter -

    NIC 1 is connected to LinkSys BEFSR41 Wired Router

    NIC 2 is connected to LinkSys BEFW154 Wireless Router

    LinkSys BEFSR41 Wired Router is connected to DSL modem.

    LinkSys BEFW154 Wireless Router is connected to cable modem.

    Azureus Configuration:

    Configuration -> Server

    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx - Override IP address sent to tracker - Only use if you realy know why you'd need it! - Bind to local IP address

    Azureus continues to use my wired adapter instead of my wireless adapter.

    Under network connections -> tools -> advanced, the wireless adapter has higher priority... still no luck.

  5. I assume that every network adapter has a different IP. So in your application you must specify which IP to use thus involving the network adapter NIC.

    It's just a thought. This is how i manage my two network adapters on my PC.


    Tried that, however azureus & bittornado are unable to bind the the specified IP. Any other suggestions?

  6. I have noticed strange things when I built a v1.2 CD using a slipstreamed SP2 install.  (Diskpart wouldn't run for some reason).

    Gotta start a few services before running diskpart :)

    net start dmserver
    net start dmadmin
    diskpart /s diskpart.cfg

  7. I would suggest using WinPE/BartPE and just running your partition & format commands before copying cabs to the hdd. You could then use diskpart & format to do what you want. I have gdisk, but haven't played with it much yet.

    here are some gdisk links though:

    Introduction to Gdisk:


    Gdisk Switches:


  8. try using assoc.exe

    Displays or modifies file extension associations

    ASSOC [.ext[=[fileType]]]

     .ext      Specifies the file extension to associate the file type with
     fileType  Specifies the file type to associate with the file extension

    Type ASSOC without parameters to display the current file associations.
    If ASSOC is invoked with just a file extension, it displays the current
    file association for that file extension.  Specify nothing for the file
    type and the command will delete the association for the file extension.

  9. look @ the bottom, and there is a link to ghost32.exe which(correct me if I am wrong) is illegal to distribute without a license... because that is the full program for ghost on windowsPE

    Link Removed... I just search for "nforce winpe" on google and found the 5th link down contained the drivers you needed. Sorry I didn't read the whole site, I figured you had tried looking on google, but I thought maybe I'd have better luck :) Might want to edit your post if you're concerned.


  10. If you guys could tell me the way on both versions as I haven't made up my mind on what PE to use(barts, or Microsoft) because the software that i am using and creating will work on either :)

    There is a bartpe plugin, the inf is fairly simple though, and I believe it includes what you need.



    5th link down.

    Drivers Included in Pack

    Realtek RTL8150 USB, Realtek RTL8139/810x/8169/8110, Intel PRO/1000 Gigabit (8254x), Intel PRO/100b (8255x), nVidia nForce Ethernet, Broadcom 440x series, Broadcom NetXtreme (57xx and 59xx), 3com 3c99x, Netgear FA101 USB, 3Com Gigabit LOM (3C940/3C2000)

  11. Never figured it out how use it, but my guess is that if you REALLY want this, then i will get a PM to tell me that you got it working during unattended install!! :whistle:

    I'm very interrested....

    I use the follwing in WinPE to setup a single full size partition & format it, you could easily modify it.


    diskpart /s diskpart.cfg
    format c: /fs:NTFS /v:"" /Q /Y


    Select Disk 0
    Create Partition primary
    Assign Letter=c
