  1. http://www.acronis.com/mag/vnu-ati7 uh, it's only crippled 15 day trial software
  2. Hmm strange. The Thunderbird is build the same way as Firefox. It works for me under VmWare. Maybe its a problem in you're stettings in nLite. Sorrie i can't give a solution. Did you rip out all outlook stuff? My settings are essentially the same using last session.ini if that's what you're referring to, but as far as Outlook, no I keep that installed, but that shouldn't present a problem. I did a seperate install of both Firefox and Thunderbird instead of the compilation, which works well enough, so the problem has been fixd with this method.
  3. Yes just use like any other nlite addon. It has indeed both programs I tried it the other day using VMWare......Firefox installed with no problem, Thunderbird never installed.
  4. Office Resource Kit [ORK] will do it http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en Also do a search on this forum for Unattended Install Of Office XP
  5. I'm having a problem here with nVidia drivers, and I think it's possible that your post would explain my dilema, except for one. Please be patient, I'm a newbie at this. When making my unattended CD, I noticed that all my nVidia drivers _except_ the SMBus drivers installed i.e. audio/video/ethernet/display drivers. I didn't really take notice of the device in the *system devices*, but only looked at add/remove programs and noticed the NVIDIA nForce PCI System Management drivers wasn't listed in the options to be removed, only the other drivers had that option. When installing them all manually, after installing an nLited XP SP2[without drivers], the SMBus drivers appeared in the add/remove programs..........then being more curious, I did take notice in the System devices, and noticed both entries for nForce4 HyperTransport Bridge and nVidia nForce PCI System Management. I'm assuming by being a *null* service as you mentioned, that you mean when looking at the properties section of those drivers where it says that "no drivers are required or have been loaded for this device", when making a query on the driver details??? So if the SMBus drivers are not loaded, why when I install them manually after a fresh nLite install, does it show up in add/remove programs? When I first made an nLite with adding the drivers, I was concerned about this, so I remade it without a driver installation. Is it therefore correct to add the drivers into an nLited install and not be concerned whether or not it shows in add/remove programs, but makes those changes in the system devices?? Thanks! I see you PMed me even though you replied to a post by Glen.. This is why I didnt notice this sooner.. Couple things, being they are simply for the sake of a name in device manager, I wouldnt even both with them. But, if you do, I would not be concerned about the Add/Remove Program entry.. It is probably not there because the driver installer program from nvidia probably adds it.. Since you are not running the installer, it doesnt show up.. I usually only integrate the drivers need to get the install done (IDE/RAID in particulair).. Beyond that, they are updated so often and I like to have the very latest drivers, so I just install the rest after I am in Windows.. I know some may have a purpose for installing them from a integrated source though. Either way, at a minimum, dont bother with the Add/Remove.. If you install a new driver without uninstalling them it wont hurt anyway.. Not saying you might not run in to trouble if you dont uninstall the other drivers though.. It's kinda funny to intall them in the first place, if it's only for the sake of a name change with a *no drivers loaded* dialog box showing up in the drivers details page. And as you say, they are updated frequently enough, so it's not so important to have them installed as an unattended install, it just was a concern of mine......to have nLite be more complete in the installation............in other words, I wanted to get this working. I just didn't realize it was a *null* device. I'll keep an eye out on *uninstalling* them at a future date. Thanks for your info!!! I'm glad both you and bilemke have put my mind at ease, and you're absolutely correct in saying that there's always some *garbage* installed besides the driver you only wanted to install in the first place. Thanks for your input!!

  7. I'd rather wait the extra time to do a good burn. It probably is more reliable in other machines as well. I now have BenQ 1650 & 1640 DVD writers, and I still don't max out on the speed, as I said before, all my media was all the same [Verbatim], and all the CDs were burned using the same speeds/formats. I use cheap [Memorex] DVDs now on a spindle, and have come across a few duds already...........but that's another forum. oops, I started a new post elsewhere in this forum re: my results on this.......
  8. Well, I can't say that ISOBuster was 100% complete in extracting _all_ the files that were *corrupted*, but it did extract quite a few of them successfully, ones that even Linux couldn't read. I don't usually use ISOBuster for this type of use, so it was something that I learned for the future, thanks to those who recommended it. It did *read* all the files in my directories in name only, so I was rather impressed with that alone. I can at least say it saved me a few hours of work I still must do as a work-around to recover the balance of MP3s through other means, but not at all as much as I would've have had to do with what XP could not read [800+ mp3s] or what Linux couldn't read [24+ mp3s]. It still boggles the mind however.
  9. Well, I'm willing to give ISOBuster a shot, I'll give it a try when I get back home tonight.............
  10. The format I used was Joliet as all my CDs have been, burning them with Nero on an XP machine. The CDs are almost 100% full, so I only used a *finalize* procedure for each one............when I realized that Linux could read these CDs, I immediately, copied them onto a *common* partition being FAT32, as I use NTFS on my XP partitions, which Linux cannot write to The hard disk I copied them to is also NTFS so, I had to go back to booting Windows to finally move my files. The problem is I still don't understand why Linux read these *unreadable* CDs......could be that Linux has better CD drivers? I'm grasping at straws here. Windows cannot even access the drive because of the *so-called* corruption, so any software would not be able to access it, eg, MP3 player, etc., so I don't see how Isobuster could access a non-accessible drive.
  11. Hope this post is in the correct forum. I'm in the process of backing up all 40 CDs of MP3s I've made in the past onto a hard disk. I had no problem copying 32 of them, but the last 8 were not recognized by XP. I received a "corrupted disk" error. These CDs will play however, in both my portable CD/MP3 player as well as in my DVD player. I've 2 DVD writers, and neither of them would let XP read the CD-Rs. I've tried reading the CDs on other computers, also with no luck. I booted to Linux on my machine, and voila, with the exception of about a dozen songs, the balance of the 8 CDs were readable/playable within Linux. Is Linux more forgiving or what? Obviously XP on 3 different machines wouldn't read the CDs at all. Weird!!
  12. I went one strep further by using office resource kit (ORK) from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...&DisplayLang=en to complete the package with an unattended Office 2003 SP2 install
  13. It's a ASUS N6600 256 mb (6 months old) ,do you think I can use the driver pack A (DriverPack Graphics) from Bâshrat the Sneaky's DriverPacks to slipstream?? Does anyone has experiance with this A-pack?? I've got a GF6800GS. I've tried Bâshrat the Sneaky's DriverPacks (A-Pack), which are the same as my 81.98 drivers. Both methods of install, still result in a 640 x 480 rez at final boot up. Have you succeded at all in your install since?
