  1. I'll post how to save 150 megs from your xp cd later today. I also have a special treat later today. -gosh
  2. I am currently using this in my new cd. This script is very simple but does something very important, it tells you what OS type the person is using. This is really cool because it let's you write one batch file and use it for multiple os's such as xp pro, win2k pro, and win2k server, etc. This batch file works on win2k/xp/server2k3 os.vbs
  3. msconfigdisabled.vbs I like this because it's a vbs version of msconfig. It's good for newbies, and it's good if a virus deleted/disabled your msconfig.
  4. Here's some stuff useful for an unattended install. Most of the stuff is rare or unique. Enjoy. Trick #1: Make a flat. Close your eyes and imagine this for a second. You've made an unattended cd. A friend of yours who is computer illiterate calls you and has a problem with his computer. It hits you that you could save time by running your unattended cd at his house, doing a quick clean install. So you go over to his house, backup his data, and run your unattended cd. Once done you leave with the unattended cd. The next day your friend calls you up. This time he needs your xp cd because he installed something like IIS, and it needs files from the CD. Now you have to drive all the way over to his house again, just to give him your cd. Wouldn't it be nice if an unattended cd not just installed your favorite programs, but copied itself to the hard drive? That way you wouldn't need the cd again. To make an unattended flat we're gonna need to make 2 files - source.bat and source.reg. We're gonna put both into the windows folder. First, make this folder: \$OEM$\$$ Copy what's below and save it as \$OEM$\$$\source.bat Copy what's below and save it as $OEM$\$$\source.reg Now, in your unattend file, make sure you have this: That's it. When you install xp using the unattend file, recovery console and a flat will be made the first time you boot into windows. This is great for friends that don't have a clue about windows. Now when they call you for help you'll know they have recovery console installed locally and a flat locally. Trick #2: Brand the my computer window: You can put a custom logo and name in the my computer window by using a simple inf file and bmp. First, make this folder: \$OEM$\$$\System32 In this folder, copy below and save as \$OEM$\$$\System32\oeminfo.ini Find a small .bmp and save it as \$OEM$\$$\System32\oemlogo.bmp Make sure your unattend file has the stuff listed in trick #1. That's it. Trick #3: Associate file types: One of the most annoying aspects about xp is how some file types aren't registered the way you want it. For example, most software is released with an .nfo file, but xp wants to open .nfo files in msinfo32. Below is a way to batch file associations: If you run those commands in a batch file, all the extensions will be registered as text files. This is also a good idea for security purposes, disabling known hostile file types such as .eml and .vbsTip #1: make a log file: Unattended installs can be hard to troubleshoot. What i like to do is make a log file, which makes it easier to see where the problem is. To make a log file, have each command end in >> logfile.txt An example from my current apps.bat file: This will log information to apps.log. Trick #3: Disable that stupid xp search companion: Like the old win2k search? Bring it back! Tip #2: Copy your favorite files to the install:Using an oempreinstall you can copy files to your install, such as: $OEM$\$$\Web\Wallpaper - put wallpapers here $OEM$\$$\System32 - put screensavers, files such as cdimage.exe and cdburn.exe here $OEM$\$$\Resources\Themes - put themes here. To specify default them make a .theme file and specify it in unattend file. Tip #3: Use the server2003 classic accounts: Copy keymgr.cpl from server2003 to your system32 folder to have classic accounts Trick #4: Show classic user accounts in control panel. To see the win2k user accounts window type control userpasswords2. To enable this in an unattended install, import this registry file: That's it for now. Let me know if you enjoy my tips and tricks. -gosh
  5. Edit: I've uploaded my sp1 uxtheme.dl_ file. Just put this file into your i386 folder and you'll be enjoying unsigned themes. If my memory is correct xp doesn't find any problems with the file. The file only works for xp sp1. uxtheme.dl_ -gosh
  6. My silent installs: Silently install any version of AIM: This will silently install aim, but it will also install the aol advertising and reset your homepage to netscape.com. You might want to have you unattended install do this: Silent install any version of directx9 (dx): There's an OPK version floating around that supports silent commands. However, using a simple hexedit you can enable the silent commands in dxsetup.exe. I'm not going to post how to hexedit dxsetup.exe. Hexworks 4.0: Use the installshield switch -r to make an .iss file. XP ISO Power toy: Norton antivirus 8.x corp: Nero 5.x.x: To register nero import these .reg files: Here's a list of all nero's unattend switches: Raxco Perfect Disk 5.x and 6.x: Extract files to temp folder then run this command: Windows XP Support tools (not supported): WinDVD 5.x: Use -r switch to make an .iss file. Winrar x.x: I made a custom installer that installs the .key and stuff. MSG me for more information. WMP9: That's it for now. -gosh
  7. I don't know if there's a policy against posting unattend files, but i thought it would be a good idea to post my unattend file in case anyone was curious. Over the past year or so i have updated it from time to time. Below is my unattend file (winnt.sif) and below that is explanations. winnt.sif Notes: 1 - I designed my unattend file to only prompt you for one thing - where you want to install XP. Once you chose the destination partition, everything is automated. It will never auto format or repartition. 2 - TargetPath=*, will cause setup to use the windows folder by default. But if a windows folder already exists, it'll make a random folder name. It will NOT delete an existing windows folder. 3 - SFCQuota=0, will cause xp to not make a dllcache. The folder will exist and have the xp catalog files, but that's it. This speeds up install time, and decreases the footprint of the install. 4 - ProductID and Productkey, if youre installing xp you only need to put the serial in Productid. However in server 2003 it uses the new value productkey. To make this unattend file usable for xp and server2003 i put both, which is harmless. Longhorn will only see the productkey field. 5 - Allowconnections, enables remote desktop by default. This is potentially a security risk, but i personally love remote desktop and want it enabled by default. 6 - OemFilesPath, as some of you know, in win2k and above there's a bug that causes the $OEM$ folder to not be copied. Because of this the $OEM$ folder might need to be under the i386 folder, or parallel to the i386 folder. Using this command makes the bug mute, since you're telling setup where the $OEM$ folder is. 7 - As you can see, i used ; in the middle of the file. Any inf files (which is what an unattend file is), can use ; after the command. 8 - As always, some settings in this unattend file might cause problems or decrease security. I am posting this for informational purposes, test the unattend file first before using it live. 9 - A default XP install takes 1.5 gigs. If you use my unattend file the windows folder will only be 750 megs, the whole partition will be about 900 megs with pagefile. A typical xp install takes around 22 mins on my computer, with this unattend file it only takes 17-18 mins to install xp. -gosh
  8. Your OemPnPDriversPath is way too long. The length limit is something small like 128 characters. One option would to be manually edit hivesys.inf. But i recommend shortening the driver list. It would be helpful if you posted the log files, setuperr.log, setupapi.log, setupact.log. It would be helpful to know what error msg you get. http://groups.google.com/groups?q=OemPnPDr....phx.gbl&rnum=1 -gosh
  9. I slipstreamed the xp rollup into xp and it took no extra time to install. You can do the same thing with the hotfixes, although it gets harder. -gosh
  10. Go cubbies! I'm a die hard cubs fan. this is the year baby! -gosh
  11. Share the folder your .pst file is in, and make sure the other computer can access is fine. -gosh
  12. So what did i say wrong? I was just defending myself. If someone opens a new post saying you did something wrong, you have every right to defend yourself. -gosh
  13. Why don't you blow a nonissue into a big deal? Go out and take a walk or something, r-e-l-a-x. As far as i can see, you're the only one who has a problem with my method. -gosh
  14. When your cd is done installing, i recommend adding a registry key to the RunOnce registry key. Have runonce run a batch file after you restart that deletes all your old folders. -gosh
  15. I have a lot of experience making custom cd's, windows PE, and unattended installs.. If there's enough interest i can post guides on making custom unattended cd's. One cd i've made has xp home, xp pro, win2k pro, win2k server, win2k adv server all on one 700 meg cd, all unattended. Another cd i've made has xp home sp1, xp pro sp1, and winpe on a 700 meg cd. The nice thing about this cd is you can install XP home or pro unattended or regular (you type in the serial and everything). I haven't seen anything on this site on winpe. Winpe is the future, which is obvious now that longhorn uses it to install. I also have a lot of $OEM$ tweaks that i haven't seen anyone post. I could post some of my tweaks. Is there interest in any of these topics? If so let me know. I have a ton of stuff. Also let me know what topics you guys would be interested in. -gosh
  16. To demlak: As you see, i don't delete the original ntoskrnl.exe. When you install a security fix, it updates ntoskrnl.exe fine. Any security issue with ntoskrnl.exe is going to be a local security issue. In other words, the only way someone is going to hack you with a security hole in ntoskrnl.exe is by having physical access to your computer. No one can hack you over the internet using a security hole in ntoskrnl.exe. I've used a custom ntoskrnl.exe for about a year and never been hacked. My post is like any post on this site, if you don't like it don't do it. My method does not let people get hacked, like i said you need physical access to a computer to hack someone with ntoskrnl.exe. And let's face it, if someone has physical access to your computer they already have you. To DMX: The method i described works. The install i have at home uses a custom boot logo. To neophyte: I don't remember off hand where it goes. Just copy the $OEM$ folder to the root of cd and under i386. -gosh
  17. wmp9, movie maker2 use iexpress to install. -gosh
  18. The intent of my original post was just to point out that when you put custom files (such as shell32.dll) into your local source, you might get errors in setuperr.log and you might get a prompt during setup. My original post was not meant to be a discussion on how SFC works or digital signing. If i would have known people would be disecting my original post i would have posted disclaimers all over it such as "some files might not post errors in setuperr.log". As for my quality posts, im glad you like me. If your interested email me for details on joining my fan club, i already have a couple members. -gosh
  19. My cd image tool makes all in one cd's, winiso just makes regular iso files. -gosh
  20. I never said the files wouldn't work, i just said setuperr.log would log digital signing errors. And you've just proven my point by posting your setuperr.log. -gosh
  21. A long time ago i made a batch file that would make an iso file and optionally burn it for you. It works fine, except for the last part that burns to cd. To make the iso file, make sure cdimage.exe is in the same folder as batch file. Also, grab cdburn.exe and dvdburn.exe from the win2k3 reskit. Download it here It's great for newbies that don't want to type commands from a dos prompt. If someone wants to fix the burn code i would appreciate it. -gosh
  22. Here's my list of changes to win2k and xp. Like i said i abandoned the project, so it's incomplete. But you could just copy and paste my settings to your hivedef.inf. Below is my list of changes.txt: Hivecls.inf creates Classes in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE. Hivedef.inf creates HKEY_USER\.DEFAULT and the Ntuser.dat for the default user. Hivesft.inf creates HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE. Hivesys.inf creates HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM.

  23. When you boot your xp computer one of the first things you see is the XP logo. This resource is in the xp kernel file, ntoskrnl.exe. Some people like to modify this to have there own custom boot logo. The tradional way to integrate a custom kernel is to first cab it (makecab ntoskrnl.exe), then put it in the i386 folder. This works, but it has some limitations. Below is my way of integrating a custom kernel, and the benefits of using my method. First, download my custom kernel file here . As you will notice, i renamed ntoskrnl.exe to oemkrnl.exe. Next, make an $OEM$ folder. Place the $OEM$ folder parallel to i386 folder if youre install locally. Place $OEM$ folder under i386 folder if installing from CD. Under the $OEM$ folder make a folder called $$. In the $$ folder make a folder called System32. In this folder, place oemkrnl.exe Now in cmdlines.txt or the GuiRunOnce section of your unattend file, put this: bootcfg /RAW /A /Kernel=OEMKrnl.exe /ID 1 bootcfg /Timeout 0 In your unattend file, make sure you have this: [unattended] UnattendMode=FullUnattended OemPreinstall=Yes OemSkipEula=Yes So here's what happens. When you install XP, it copies the $OEM$\$$\System32 folder to %windir%\system32. This places oemkrnl.exe into your system32 folder. Then when setup processes cmdlines.txt or your unattend file, it adds the switch /kernel=oemkrnl.exe to your boot.ini. Now when you boot up, you'll see the custom kernel. So why do all this when you can just put your ntoskrnl.exe into the i386 folder? Several reasons: 1 - If you install a windows update that has a newer version of ntosrknl.exe, it'll replace your customized ntoskrnl.exe file. The only fix would be to resource edit the new ntoskrnl.exe. This isn't very practical when you consider there have been at least 4 kernel updates to xp since sp1 was released. Using my method, the custom ntoskrnl.exe is ALWAYS used, even if you do windows update. 2 - If you need to install a service pack, all you do is delete the /kernel= part in your boot.ini. If you integrated a custom ntoskrnl.exe file, you would have to use the switch -o to install a service pack. My method is more service pack friendly. Note: Over time i have found a bug with bootcfg. If you are dual booting, it sometimes edits the wrong line in the boot.ini. I firmly feel that this is a bug in bootcfg, not my coding. Also, bootcfg.exe is only included in xp pro, but you could probably use it in xp home. (bootcfg.exe is different from the bootcfg command in recovery console) -gosh
  24. One thing i haven't seen is a good guide on how to not install core things such as movie maker, system restore, net meeting, etc. Here is how to not install these things for XP. Same method will work for win2k and win2k3. 1 - Remove windows defragger Delete dfrg.in_ from i386 folder Download dfrg.inf and put it in your i386 folder. Now when you install XP windows defragger won't be installed. 2 - Remove Movie maker Delete moviemk.in_ from i386 folder Download moviemk.inf and save it into i386 folder Now when you install XP you won't have movie maker 3 - Remove windows messenger Delete msmsgs.in_ from i386 folder Download msmsgs.inf and save to i386 folder Now when you install no more windows messenger 4 - Remove net meeting Delete MSNETMTG.IN_ from i386 folder Download MSNETMTG.INF to i386 folder Now ms netmeeting is gone 5 - Remove system restore Delete sr.in_ from i386 folder Download sr.inf and save to i386 folder Now system restore is gone -gosh
  25. Awhile ago i was making a win2k 4in1 all in one cd, but gave up due to lack of interest. I thought i would share some of my ideas from that project. 1 - Disable automatic updates. Delete au.in_ and download this file to your i386 folder, download it here. 2 - Disable connection wizard icon Don't you hate that icon on your desktop from the connection wizard? Well i do. Download this file and save it in your i386 folder. Delete icwnt5.in_. 3 - Customize the default profile. The way i customized profiles is to modify hifedef.inf. Download mine here . Overwrite your hivedef.inf with mine. To find what i changed, search the file for changed_win2k. I've tested it and it works perfect. It's great for beginners. Enjoy. All .inf files are for win2k sp4. All .inf files you can get from the free sp4 download. -gosh
