  1. MAVERICKS CHOICE - Yes, my BIOS fully supports booting from USB. jaclaz - I haven't tried with that method yet. Not sure how it does it's thing but the diskpart method seems works great for Vista. As for my problem I believe it has to do with the boot sector on my usb hard disk drive. I was using a WD Passport 120 Gig USB drive (older model) with 2 partitions. One 10 Gig formatted with FAT32 (Vista Boot Partition) and the second was 110 Gig NTFS Partition. It would build Vista fine, it would not however read the Autounattend.xml. What I mean is that it would build like you were using the original DVD to install Vista. I eventually got tired of trying to figure it out and went with a 4 Gig test flash drive. That worked like a charm, built Vista in roughly 25 to 30 minutes requiring no input from me. YAY.... I'm not really sure why the 120 Gig gave me so much trouble.
  2. I am having the same issue. I was wondering if you had been able to find a solution? If not maybe we can figure it out. Let me know...
  3. New Windows Update Agent 3.0 available

    I was just looking for the 7.2.6001.788 version for Vista w/SP1 when in my investigations found the below direct links. They can be used with vLite to add them to your image. If this has already been posted then I won't take offense to this reply getting deleted. WUClient ActiveX - 7.2.6001.788 (x86) WUClient Aux - 7.2.6001.788 (x86) WUClient Core - 7.2.6001.788 (x86) I found the links above in "%SYSTEMROOT%\WindowsUpdate.log". Hope this helps someone. Enjoy...
