  1. am i the only one who doesn't like touch buttons? i find it irritating and there's no certainty in presssing anything. touch screens are good though just becuase it replaces the mouse.
  2. could you send me one? rudeboymcc AT hotmail DOT com
  3. @astalavista, thanks but i'm not new to forums, i know how they work. @ the other two, perhaps i didn't make myself clear. i just realised i posted this in the wrong part of unattended windows, it was meant to go in the multiboot cd/dvd section. sorry. i don't want windows on this disk, and i don't want everything to install itself silently in the background. i just want a dvd disk with most of my programs (applications, not operating systems) on it, and from it i can select which one i want to install (all done individually without any switching or coding. obviously this is easy with small programs but as i said, it gets harder with things like office. basically, i want to know how i can make a disk like the multiboot ones with al lthe operating systems on it, but with programs instead.
  4. hi. i'd like to put all (or most) of my programs/applications on one DVD disk. for most programs there's no problem (as they're jsut .exe files), but i don't know how i can do this with office on it as well. at first i thought i could jsut take the officecd just as it is and add a new folder with all the other apps in it, but i prefer to do it properly. is there any way i can just have a screen come up when i put the cd in, and then i can select the program i want to install? if not, what do i do if i have two programs like office and adobe essentials? both which need loads of files and aren';t jsut .exe files.
  5. k, i opened taskmgr when i thought the pc wasn't responding or had frozen, and it turns out it's very busy. the main process running is update.exe but i don't recognise this. i didn't put it on the cd. is it a windows file?? other processes are (apart from system ones): KB824105 xpsp1hfm anyone know what xpsp1hfm is and if KB824105 (which i guess is one of my updates) is supposed to run at the same time as update.exe?
  6. @ Gosh, i tried shift f10, typed in notepad setuperr.log and it said file not found. (notepad opened so setuperr.log wasn't found.) where is this file saved? is this file only created if there are errors? i found a setuplog but it's way too long to copy here and from what i understand it's just a file saying everything that's happend. i'm running setup again, and this time i'll open taskmgr so i can see the CPU activity (virtuall pc only shows hard disk activity and cd rom activity).
  7. @ crispy, thanks for taking my key out. @Aaron xp, i was aware it would take a little longer, but i left it for half an hour and nothing was happenning, no egg timer, jsut disk activity every 5 seconds. how long do i need to leave it for in virtual pc? i know it's a lot slower than a pc. @gosh, i will try that shift+F10 and see what's happening. thanks guys!
  8. also, here's the svcpack.inf file [Version] Signature="$Windows NT$" BuildNumber=2600 MajorVersion=5 MinorVersion=1 [setupData] CatalogSubDir="I386\svcpack" [setupHotfixesToRun] KB821557.exe /Q /U /N /Z KB823559.exe /Q /U /N /Z KB824105.exe /Q /U /N /Z KB824146.exe /Q /U /N /Z Q323255.exe /Q /U /N /Z Q328310.exe /Q /U /N /Z Q329048.exe /Q /U /N /Z Q329115.exe /Q /U /N /Z Q329390.exe /Q /U /N /Z Q329441.exe /Q /U /N /Z Q329834.exe /Q /U /N /Z Q810565.exe /Q /U /N /Z Q810577.exe /Q /U /N /Z Q811493.exe /Q /U /N /Z Q811630.exe /Q /U /N /Z Q814033.exe /Q /U /N /Z Q815021.exe /Q /U /N /Z Q817606.exe /Q /U /N /Z Q818857.exe /Q:A /R:N Q828750.exe /Q:A /R:N QCHAIN.EXE
  9. hi. i'm trying this unattended cd with updates and some programs (directx, msn, wmp). i'm using virtual pc to check if it's working, and it's not. the setup starts, and loads normally, and when it gets to 13 minutes, the hour glass next to the mouse comes on and off a few times, but then it just freezes. the dots at the bottom are still moving, it,s just stuck on registering components (half way). i'm guessing i did something worng while editing one of the files. my question is, can i view the contents of the .vhd virtual hard disk that virtual pc made? this way i can access the logs and see what has happenned. (so i know if it's the updfates that are the problem, or the programs, or if i just haven't told it to END). anyone know how? if anyone thinks they can help just by looking at my files i edited here they are: main_batch.cmd (in install\) CLS @echo off ECHO.
