  1. Hi, installed in my system I have 1 gig of DDR2 PC5300 667mhz. I mistakenly bought an extra gig of DDR2 PC4300 533mhz. In the old days when I was up to speed with computers your RAM had to be matched, the question I have is: with the advances in technology can I add this extra stick or do I need to change it for an identical type? My motherboard is fairly new and the processor is a 3800 dual core AMD many thanks
  2. Can you add a link to this script please gosh? cheers
  3. Make that 2!!!!! I check this site several times a day now... sad I know but I love to learn, and this place is tops for that!
  4. I am a newbie around here, but what i gleaned from here and use is as above. Once the pssshutdown is in your system it works fine. Unless I am corrected try that. Cant remember where I got those files though <scratches head> edit: found it http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/freeware...sshutdown.shtml
  5. Do you have the following or similiar COPY "%systemdrive%\Install\Tools\deluser.exe" "%systemroot%\" COPY "%systemdrive%\Install\Tools\psshutdown.exe" "%systemroot%\" COPY "%systemdrive%\Install\Tools\pskill.exe" "%systemroot%\" in one of your first .cmd files?
  6. Sorry to bump, has anyone any ideas how to install Office off the DVD instead of copying to HD first? thanks
  7. I find this site to be one of the most `newbie` friendly I have come across. You only occasionally get a synical "use search" :/ The problem with the search is often you cant narrow down a decent keyword. For example I wanted to talk about DVD unattended installs ... It wont accept just `DVD` and I could not for the life of me pick the other keywords to assist. To that end it would be nice to see a few basic FAQ`s pinned. More importantly it would be great to see The latest script/method by individuals. As example I have tried to keep track of gosh`s scripts, without wanting to blow smoke up his butt They are **** good! Also without being disrespectful to others AaronXP, daveXP and gosh seem to have an encyclopedia of knowledge between them. Would it be possible to pin your scripts and commands that you use personally - as a reference/guide. They are scattered all over at present, thoughts ???
  8. Tested the whole DVD and it works great, now just a few tweaks to sort out. I have my silent install apps in: $oem$\$1\install\Applications\ I have added Office11, Nero, Diskeeper 8 and a few other basics. That adds considerable size to the DVD I have, I assume an unecessary delay whilst installing as all the above gets obviously copied to my hard drive. to %systemdrive%\install To save time is it possible to install Office etc from the CD as oppose to copying 500mb to the hard drive first? I call the install from a batch file as below: ECHO Installing Adobe Reader 6 ECHO Please wait... start /wait %systemdrive%\install\Applications\AdobeReader6\AR6.msi /QB ECHO. ECHO. ECHO Installing Media Player 9 ECHO Please wait... start /wait %systemdrive%\install\Applications\media9\media9.exe /Q:A /R:N ECHO. ECHO. ECHO Installing Office System 2003 ECHO Please wait... start /wait %systemdrive%\install\Applications\Office11\setup.exe TRANSFORMS=%systemdrive%\install\Applications\Office11\Unattended.MST /qb- ECHO. ECHO. ECHO Installing Diskeeper Professional Edition 8.0 ECHO Please wait... start /wait %systemdrive%\Install\Applications\Diskeeper\Setup.msi /qn ECHO. ECHO. ECHO Removing HotFix Log Files. DEL "%SYSTEMROOT%\*.log" /Q /F DEL "%SYSTEMROOT%\*.txt" /Q /F DEL "%SYSTEMROOT%\*.tmp" /Q /F DEL "%SYSTEMROOT%\TEMP\*.*" /Q /F ECHO Deleting Temp Installation Files... RD /S /Q %systemdrive%\install ECHO Applying Registry Tweaks... REGEDIT /S %systemdrive%\install\RegTweaks.reg ECHO. ECHO. EXIT Thanks
  9. Latest update from techconnect is that it may be a fake?
  10. HA!!! Dont you just love this site.. yet another issue sorted Thanks gents, found it in the place swedenXP suggested
  11. On my travels I found this site with the great title as above - just thought it may interest us here Real men dont click
  12. I am trying to silent install diskeeper 8 now. Having searched the threads I see people use .msi to silent install. How do I convert an .exe to .msi ? thanks
  13. Thanks AaronXP, I noticed you updated the page also :-) I followed the guide and use the below . PERFECT now ... cheers start /wait %systemdrive%\install\Applications\Office11\setup.exe TRANSFORMS=%systemdrive%\install\Applications\Office11\Unattended.MST /qb-
  14. I have just followed the above link through to the end. This is where I am looking for clarification. It says: ECHO. ECHO Installing Office XP Professional with Frontpage ECHO Please wait... start /wait %systemdrive%\install\Applications\OfficeXP\setup.exe TRANSFORMS=C:\XPCD\$OEM$\$1\install\Applications\OfficeXP\Unattended.MST /qb- I am correct in assuming that if I am installing off a CD/DVD I will just need ECHO. ECHO Installing Office XP Professional with Frontpage ECHO Please wait... start /wait %systemdrive%\install\Applications\OfficeXP\setup.exe TRANSFORMS=%systemroot%\install\Applications\OfficeXP\Unattended.MST /qb- in other words drop the TRANSFORMS c:\...eTC and replace with %systemroot% ? thanks
  15. Thanks Nologic :-) sorted now - have a nice bootable DVD - much appreciated
  16. Thanks... I was not aware of the `4` sectors! With ref to the above quote, not sure what you mean here. I have downloaded the empty xpboot.img from this site and where the tab says `use image` I have selected the above. Is this correct or do I still need to use Isobuster? cheers
  17. Can anyone assist with the correct settings to use with nero 6 for making a bootable dvd please. I have the empty .img file from this site but the settings confuse me on the nero boot page. Do I need to emulate anything in that field, also should I put the .img on a floppy. Sorry for being nieve here
  18. I was totally gobsmacked yesterday, spammers had somehow managed to set an appt in my oulook calender? A reminder came up yesterday from Outlook XP and when I read it it said "dont forget to visit www.xyz...etc today" Has anyone else seen this new method?? Anyone know how to stop it more importantly? cheers
  19. So happy I could s*** :-))))))) Gosh - I used your file but instead of changing perms on security I first selected `security - owner` It allowed me to take ownership and THEN it allowed me to bin them ha!!! Thank you so much for removing a REAL headache
  20. Gosh - I was getting excited and thought yes this will do it. I run through exactly as it says yet It still says access denied!!! I chnage the permissions to `full` include subfolders but it says `cant continue access denied` Can post a screenshot if needed but dont think will help
  21. Indeed yes. I have two fat32 and one NTFS (for my large backups etc) They are only secreted on the NTFS drive? do you have an answer ?
  22. Thank god - I have 3 27 digit folders on my D:\ for a bout 2 week - just as yours. At MS site it says left over from installing SP1 and can be safetly deleted!!!! Yeh right!!! My bitches wont budge... I would format it but I can move my MP3 and software to another drive as I have to many! lol I have tried at cmd promp, safe mode, tried changing permissions. All I get is a stroppy "BING" saying I cant delete, dont have permission. Yes I am admin... although no answer here its nice not to be alone!!!
  23. This is the kind of thread I love to read - I am in awe of you guys :-)
