  1. The 8mb cache will be used no matter what configuration the drive is in. It will improve performance, so putting games on there is a good thing. About the cables, have you tried Google? Pricewatch.com? NewEgg?
  2. We already have a resident post whore, he goes by the name of XtremeMac.
  3. I would never mess with that kind of stuff...
  4. VirtualPC. Why? VMWare attacks your OS and integrates itself everywhere. Who said I wanted 3 new "virtual" network cards installed? Why is it running 3 processes when the program isn't even open? Why does it have to mess with internal settings?
  5. Getting rid of "Allow Indexing service to ..." would involve editing shell files, which goes beyond the scope of nLite. Windows was not designed to have that service removed, which is why it sticks around even after you remove it.
  6. Yeah Famer, but as the size goes down so does the functionality...
  7. Yeah I expect I'll be able to open up explorer, but that's about it. Let's shoot for a 100 mb ISO! My report Disclaimer: I have not read the past 30 pages, these bugs may have been reported, or they may be due to the fact that I removed EVERYTHING -No errors during nLite usage or during XP installation, boots to the desktop in VirtualPC just fine -Iso size: 120 megs -Windows folder size: 287 megs -8 processes (Disabled a bunch relating to network) -The "Backup" system tool is not removed, seems like a great candidate for removal -The "Synchronize" tool is still there, probably could be removed as well -Folders of removed components remain in the \Windows directory (there's probably not much you can do about this) What exactly is the ASMS folder on the XPCD? Has anybody tried to remove it and install? Edit #16 I used Bold_Fortune's batch files to remove more files... down now to 211 199 meg Windows folder.
  8. Great job nuhi! ISO is now down to 120 megs. I'm off to VirtualPC to test it...
  9. That's awesome! How big was the ISO?
  10. sulphurine, don't tell him to STFU. He said he doesn't know anything about Longhorn, he's just curious. @ thread starter, check MSDN Longhorn for a bunch of info, and sites like www.longhornblogs.com.
  11. Stop. Bumping. 10. old. threads. at. one. time.
  12. He used that Maya or Bruce3D program, I can't remember which. They're nice ...
  13. Mispositioning in IE6, probably CSS error
  14. Ah, thanks for the tip. Previously I just went up to the code section and entered <br>'s instead of hitting enter.
  15. @amdmstf There's nothing else to do other than replacing the boot screen with a colored one- I mean you can't skip the boot screen or anything, it's loading stuff during that time.
  16. Open up your boot.ini file (root of Master hard drive) and add this line to the entry of the OS you want to remove the bootscreen from /NOGUIBOOT so it'll look something like this: multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect /NOGUIBOOT
  17. Hello, Could it possibly be this? http://unattended.msfn.org/
  18. Solved! Here's how to make your own custom about:<name> page: 1. Create an html page and place it anywhere on your hard drive (I chose C:\Windows\Localhost) 2. Open up regedit and navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\AboutURLs 3. Create a new string value, name it whatever you want the about:<name> to be. I named mine localhost. 4. Right click the string you created, and select Modify. Type the complete path to the webpage (i.e. C:/Windows/Localhost/index.htm) That's it! Close the registry editor. Now all you have to do is set your homepage to about:<name> and your custom page will show up. I'd also like to add that it is noticeably faster than Apache.
  19. Thanks for the suggestion, I knew that already- however, I'm looking for a solution that doesn't have absolute paths in it- i.e. about:local or localhost. I know I'm picky
  20. Ah, that makes sense Are there any other about:something pages? XM I have no idea what you're talking about. What host address?
