  1. Can someone tell me the correct coding for my RunOnceEx.cmd in order to install Adobe Acrobat 7.0 WinZip 9.0 Microsoft Antispyware BETA Thanks.
  2. So... whats the file to edit in order to change the logon screen?
  3. worked Changed the welcome.exe too... Now to change the logon screens, but not sure what the filename is for this. anyone?
  4. a more detailed guide to follow if it works... Ill include how to edit screen savers, and logon interfaces. A great way to make a complete silent install disc to your company specifications. Using little touches like your company logo everywhere.
  5. Cheers fellas... Heres what ive done so far... Copy NTOSKRNL.EX_ , NTKRNLMP.EX_ , ntkrpamp.ex_ , ntkrnlpa.ex_ to a directory of my choice, from my I386 directory. Unpack them using the expand.exe <filename> <output filename> Extract the bmp I want to edit from the unpacked file. Edit them... then include them into the unpacked file. Now repack them up to their original states using the... makecab.exe <output filename> <filename> Now copy and paste all my modified files back to the I386 directory (overwriting the orginals). First bit done. Now Extract SP4.CAB and SP3.CAB to a directory of my choice. With the files I unpacked earlier I copy and paste them into the directorys containing the files unpacked from SP3.CAB and SP4.CAB. Overwriting the originals. Then I used the cabarc.exe n sp4.cab *.* to repack the cabs. Then copy the cabs back to the I386 Directory overwriting the originals. A wollah! I'm testing it now to see if it will keep my modified bootscreen after installation. I'll get back to you if it works.
  6. ok.. getting somewhere.. .looks like Not only do the ex_ files need to be opened/edited/repacked... the sp4.cab and sp3.cab needs to be repacked with the .exe files. How can I add or replace files to .cab archives?
  7. Once ive found a way of modifying the bootscreen. logonui and shutdown images ill post a guide for windows2000 users.
  8. Ok, found out that if you add it unpacked it will use that screen when restarts occur DURING setup. But once windows is installed its back to the original windows bootscreen. This means.. If you want a different boot screen for setup you just have to add your modified ntoskrnl.exe file to the i386 dir. Your method above is working... its using my modified bootscreen for setup. Now once setup is finished i'll be able to see if its kept it.
  9. im aware that .RAR is not .EXE ... you can't execute an archive. RAR is an archive file. EX_ is also an archive file. EXE is an executable file. I'm sure this is what is screwing it up. Just wondering if anyone had a guide for windows 2000 rather than the xp one.
  10. Hi, I'm trying to make a boot screen for windows 2000 (well edit the original) So it will load up first restart after installation. The files I have are... NTOSKRNL.EX_ NTKRNLMP.EX_ ntkrpamp.ex_ NTKRNLPA.EX_ I try to open these files with WinRaR. But error I get is "This is not a valid win32 file". So, change the extension to .EXE or .exe respectively. Now I can open it in winRaR. Extract the contents. If I extract NTOSKRNL.EXE (formally NTOSKRNL.EX_) I get a folder names NTOSKRNL and within the folder is ntoskrnl.exe. OK, I use reshacker to change the background image (image 1) sticking to the 4bit 16 colours .BMP format. Save the bootscreen. Repack the folder with the bootscreen as NTOSKRNL.RAR. Then change the file extension to .EX_ . This doesnt work. What am I doing wrong?!
  11. yea, use that hfslip. Works perfectly. http://www.vorck.com/2ksp5.html I didnt want to put hotfixes in svcpack. But maybe i'm going to have to with that hotfix :/
  12. FFS... WGA, what a pain in the **** Slipstreamed SP4. Slipstreamed DX9c. Intergrate KB891861 (Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4). Slipstreamed IE6. Intergrate KB842773 (BITS 2.0 and WinHTTP 5.1) Intergrate KB892130 (Windows Genuine Advantage) Intergrate KB893803 (Windows Installer 3.1 Redistributable V2) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ok, I completed all the above in that order. I done each slipstream/integration seperately. Created an ISO then allowed it to install on Virtual Machine 2004. The following installed and works fine... SP4 (according to system/control p) DX9c (according to diaxdiag) IE6 (according to About>Help) KB842773 (according to windowsupdate.microsoft.com) KB893803 (according to windowsupdate.microsoft.com) Can you see my problem. I used tommyPs prog to intergrate WGA and I've tried both Nlite and TommyPs to intergrate Kb891861. But they never intergrate. ?
  13. http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?act=ST&f=35&t=32125 I honestly did search before i posted...
  14. Windows 2000 Professional Service Pack 4 Would like to know how to slipstream this tool into the above operating system installation. Can any body help? I can't even find a place to download this out side of Windows Update! Cheers guys.
  15. Original Disc - Windows 2000 SP3 1: Slipstreamed SP4. Tested. Worked fine. 2: Slipstreamed DX9.c. Tested. Worked fine. 3: Slipstreamed IE6. Tested. 1 minor problem... Web address "http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/" fails to load correctly, unless I manually add "http://www.microsoft.com/" to the IE Privacy Allow list. How can i have my unattended setup do this automatically?
  16. Used TommyPs batch file to slipstream ie6,sp4,directx9c,wm10. Then added the genuine (note) product key like so.. ProductKey=xxxxx-x... ProductID=xxxxx-xxx... ProductID="xxx... ProductKey="xxx... One of them made it work, dont no which one, and cba to figure it out! Also used tommyp to slipstream all hotfixes too. Great program!
  17. Plus, despite adding a product key, it still asks for one during installation.
  18. 1: Would like to have ie6 installed during windows 2000 installation... any suggestions? 2: Hotfix KB832843 asks for a restart... how can i stop this? 3: would like to know how to change the setup billboard screen. Im a complete amatuer with this unattended setup business, so go easy on me guys. Cheers!
