  1. Hi, Should I put it as msmsgs off or on. I have put it as off in my winnt.sif file and I am getting the message.
  2. I can't start O & O defrag from the microsoft management console. It gives some error as to it failed to initialize. I have to manually install it later. I installed it using the command line from the MSFN unattended xp cd\application section
  3. Hi, The problem now is that I have added the UXTheme.dll and UXTheme.dl_ files to i386 folder and XP installation works ok. But at first login a SFC window comes u[p saying that some files were replaced asking for Windows XP CD. I am not sure whether it has been caused by the UXTheme file. I am copying a modified sysoc.inf from commandline during the guirunonce section. The sysoc.inf file is not placed in the i386 folder.
  4. Hi, I am not getting the problem evrytime I start MSN. But when it runs for the first time after installation. I asks for the path to the files and if I click cancel, everything just works fine. But it is an annoyance. Can someone find a solution to this
  5. My question now is.. QUOTE Now copy the ".inf" and ".cab" files from all these folders to the "C:\XPCD\I386\$$\inf" folder. What does that line do ? I have been using the "OemPnPDriversPath" method to install the drivers Well I got this step from the "thetechguide" forum. I am not sure whether it is essential or not. As far as the spelling mistakes are concerned I am sorry. Read the line as: Now copy the ".inf" and ".cab" files from all these folders to the "C:\XPCD\I386\$$\inf" folder. Now copy the ".inf" and ".cat" files from all these folders to the "C:\XPCD\$OEM$\$$\inf" folder. "RayOK : As for the adding sstray.exe /r to the registry by an extra .reg file seems unnecessary to me. The file nvautils.inf (in AudioUtl) does this anyway.. Please, someone tell me why" Can you make a post as to how did you install it using the nvautils.inf?
  6. Eventhough I am disabling SFC with the following reg file from the cmdlines.txt the sfc window saying windows files were replaced pops up at first reboot. [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon] "SFCDisable"=dword:ffffff9d I did this since I wanted to copy the patched UXTheme.dll file during this phase. If copy it in the GUIRunOnce section, i will have to reboot to enable themes. Should I add the SFC disable in the GUIRunOnce section. I am getting a file not found message for REN %systemroot%\System32\dllcache\uxtheme.dll uxtheme.old
  7. When my unattended XP installation is completed a windows comes up asking to insert the cd containing msn messenger. If i click cancel there is no problem. If I click ok it asks for the location <CD DRIVE>\I386 folder. I am installing MSN Messenger 6.0.0602 using the following command line start /wait %systemdrive%\install\MSN\MsnMsgs.msi /QB
  8. Installation nVidia nForce driver 2.45 ====================================== I am assuming that you are creating your unattended Windows XP CD in C:\XPCD. Extract the nVidia nForce driver package 2.45. And copy these folders from the location where extracted to c:\XPCD\$OEM$\$1\drivers\nvidia AudioDrv AudioUtl Display Ethernet GART IDE MemCtl SMBus USB The setup.exe and other files in the root folder are not needed. Only the files in these folders are needed. Add the path to all these folders in the OemPnPDriversPath of the [unattended] section of "winnt.sif" file. The [unattended] section of my winnt.sif looks like this [unattended] UnattendMode=FullUnattended OemSkipEula=Yes OemPreinstall=Yes TargetPath=\WINDOWS DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore OemPnPDriversPath="drivers\motorola;drivers\nvidia\IDE\WinXP;drivers\nvidia\SMBus;drivers\nvidia\MemCtl;drivers\nvidia\USB;drivers\nvidia\Ethernet\WinXP;drivers\nvidia\GART;drivers\nvidia\Display;drivers\nvidia\AudioDrv;drivers\nvidia\AudioUtl" Now copy the ".inf" and ".cab" files from all these folders (do not move the files) to the "C:\XPCD\I386\$$\inf" folder. We have to get the Soundstorm Audio Control Panel in the system tray at startup. To do this copy and paste into Notepad and save as nforce.reg: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run] "nForce Tray Options"="sstray.exe /r" You could save the nforce.reg file in the "C:\XPCD\$OEM$\$1\install\Tools" folder. Inorder to copy the files in the AudioUtl folder add the following commands to your batch file that will be run in the "GUIRUNONCE" section. The last command will merge the registry file that we created to the registry that will enable the system tray control panel. ECHO. ECHO Copying Nvidia Soundstorm files... COPY "%systemdrive%\drivers\nvidia\AudioUtl\*" "%systemroot%\System32\" ECHO Adding Nvidia Audio Panel to startup REGEDIT /S %systemdrive%\install\Tools\nforce.reg I have tested this and it is working fine.
  9. Hi, I have a problem with UXTheme.dll file. If I am copying it in gui run once then i have to reboot the system to get it working. Also since it is not in effect xp loads with classic theme (which is ugly). I then tried to add it to the i386 folder. Then xp installation produced an error and asked whethere to skip the file or not. I also tried to use the following command makecab uxhem.dll and add the uxtheme.dll_ file to i386 By the way i am not using xp sp1
  10. Hi, I found a way to solve the poblem. Follow these steps. 1. Add the path to the driver files like ide,gart,usb,audi etc to the winnt.sif file 2. Inside the script file used to install ur apps in GUIRUNONCE add a command to copy all the contents of the audioutl folder 3. Now we have to add the control panel to systray .. to do that we have to add it ti the startup. If u have installed the driver manually using the setup file .. check HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run export the key and delete all except the nvida key (sstray.exe /r ) and merge this reg file. 4. All done. It is working for me. I will make a more detailed post next day.
  11. Hi, I could install the driver by adding the path to the inf files from the extracted setup. But what i couldn't do was to install the nvidia audio utility package. it isn't a driver just the controls like equilizer and things like that. It works only if do a normal install, not from the drivers sec of winnt.sif the link to driver file is http://download.nvidia.com/Windows/nForce/...ternational.exe it is 25 mb package..
  12. The driver comes as a single executable installer which could be extracted. I think this file is made with installshield. There is another installshield setup file present in the extracted files. Also there are separate folders for various drivers such as ide,gart,smbus etc. I tried running the setup with the -R param and copy the \windows\setup.iss file to the distro folder and then installing the driver with the path to this file. But the problem is that once the installation completes the system automatically restarts. While I ran setup with -R param, I had selected the restart later option
  13. Hi, Can somebody tell me how can I install the nForce driver package in the silent mode? I extracted the contents of the big distro file and then added the path to the separate packages like ide,gart atc in the winnt.sif file. But the problem is that there is the nForce audio utility package hich is not getting installed.
