  1. I ran a very basic sysprep on a stuffed image with MaCafee, at least 10 custom applications, MaCafee Solidifier (in "update mode"), Windows Steady State (Service set to Disabled). This is an SP3 loaded WinXP image. No errors appeared when running Syspep. I have attempted to lay the image down on a Hyper-V and VMWare Workstation machine and both froze at the same point of time. Mini-Setup is freezing at the Light Blue "Please wait while Windows prepare to start...", which appears right at the start of the process. ANY Help is much appreciated. See screenshot and attached "setup*.log" files. DropBox URL for setup files.
  2. Is there a way to dedicate a network connection to a browser session ? I have been doing some searching and have been unsuccessful. I tried to prioritize WLAN connection over LAN connections via "Advanced" settings from network connections and that did nothing. I also would like my LAN active for RDP sessions, so I can not DC from LAN when browsing. Scenerio, Both LAN and WLAN are connected to separate broadband networks. Preferred Network connection for browsing internet (WLAN) Thanks in advance for any assistance provided.
  3. To enter the network credentials into your rules, enter the following : DeployRoot=\\SERVER\SHARE UserDomain=WORKGROUPorDOMAIN UserID=USERNAME UserPassword=PASSWORD To automate what TS you would like them to use, use the following property : SkipTaskSequence=YES TaskSquenceID=IDofDESIREDTS
  4. Look into settings RULES within MDT. Also, you may want to look into using MDT2010, it was released about a month ago and has fixed several bugs within 2008.
  5. I would like to add WinXP on my C: drive as a boot option for my WinPE boot WIM. I tried to use the bcdedit command line util in Vista and it seemed to add the {legacy} entry successfully, but I was unable to set the option as the "default" and I also was unsuccessful in setting a "timeout" value for the boot menu. So no boot menu appears when booting using the BCD. Any Help is MUCH appreciated. ! Thanks in advance ! wow this must be harder than i think it is ?
  6. I use "devcon.exe", its an MS app. URL: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/311272
  7. Hey all ! I am having serious headaches trying to figure out how to create a light bootable usb to boot to DOS or WinPE2. I have some tools that require a autoit support (winpe) and others that require DOS, so i really could use this. I have been trying to use syslinux, but getting no where quick. I tried to run syslinux from dos on the usb drive and it becomes not bootable. I would use the multiboot.cmd usb option presented by another user in this forum, but it is way over the top than what i need and i would really like to learn how to use syslinux. Any help is MUCH appreciated. I have WinXP with several VmWare virtual machines (DOS,Vista,etc. ), so I should be able to get the files I need to create this. I I also have several 4G USB sticks. Thanks again in advance for the assistance -Brian
  8. I am battling with an issue with Dial-up on a laptop. When establishing a dial-up connection, The modem seems to connect, and I get an "after-dialup" terminal window to log into my account, which goes fine, but then I receive a "error 50 - All Devices are connected". This issue only occurs when I try to dial-up AFTER I put my laptop into Standby, so the issue goes away once I reboot my laptop. Any ideas? Thanks in advance. Some things I checked: firewall disabled Windows up-to-date 12/06 Brian briangonzalez@gmail.com
  9. Im trying to figure out how to change a certain IE security setting via the registry... the setting is named "Do Not Save Encypted Pages" (checkbox), I would like this setting unchecked.. Thanks in advance for the help!
  10. Try to read a bit more on NLite forums. With NLite you can easily integrate updates and hotfixes in Windows installation CD.. Right i understand that, but I am attempting to update an existing windows xp installation without a new installation. Currently the laptops have sp1 and they only use a dialup connection, so i need a clean and easy way to upgrade them to sp2 and all updates after that? any ideas? thanks for the help! brian
  11. Humm, NLite ? B) nLite seems like it is designed to install windows via CD, which is similiar to what i need, but it doesnt seem to offer any services for just installing updates to windows? anyone have any more information on this, or a way to do this through nLite? brian
  12. Im looking for an app that would check if a windows patch is installed and if not it will install it, reboot if ness. and install all of the needed updates for windows? would nLite be a good option for this?
  13. I got a sp2 install cd made, but i figure there must be an easy way to include other updates made after sp2 in there?, Anyone know of a clean way to do this? Thanks. Brian
  14. bumping for help. because Im back to this project... and this suggestion did not work... WHAT AM I MISSING.. I know this is very simple, but it isnt working... can someone provide me with an example sysprep.inf that works for you?. Im still scratching my head on this . I was able to figure out the problem, it was my sysprep program that i was using. For some reason it wouldn't work. I un packaged them again from the windows xp cd and it works fine now. Brian

  17. I am going insane with this, because it is such a simple problem, but i keep getting it. I made a plan vanilla sysprep.inf and it still doesnt work. I also made sure i had all of the nessesary files for sysprep, because i copied the entire deploy.cab into C:\sysprep and it still doesnt automate anything.... this is how i am testing it. I am creating c:\sysprep and then i am copying all of the deploy.cab into that directory, then i am putting my custom sysprep.inf file in the sysprep.inf file... Then i am running the sysprep.exe file and then hitting "reseal", then i let the computer shutdown and then i am starting it up aagain and i receive all of the user inputs that i am trying to automate...... this is the fustrating part.. Any help is well appreciated.. Thanks in advance Here is my plan vanilla sysprep.inf: ;SetupMgrTag [unattended] OemSkipEula=Yes InstallFilesPath=C:\sysprep\i386 [GuiUnattended] AdminPassword="xxxxx" EncryptedAdminPassword=NO OEMSkipRegional=1 TimeZone=35 OemSkipWelcome=1 [userData] ProductKey=xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx FullName="xxxxx" OrgName="xxxxx" ComputerName=briang2 [Display] BitsPerPel=32 Xresolution=1024 YResolution=768 Vrefresh=60 [setupMgr] DistFolder=C:\sysprep\i386 DistShare=windist [identification] JoinWorkgroup=WORKGROUP [Networking] InstallDefaultComponents=Yes PLEASE HELP!!!...
