  1. Not sure if this is exactly what you want, but it's what I do. I don't have Home Server though, just running Windows Server 2003 on one of my computers. Has a bunch of network shares which is where I pull the programs from.

    The following is in my Unattended.xml:

    <settings pass="oobeSystem">
    <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
    <FirstLogonCommands>
    <SynchronousCommand wcm:action="add">
    <CommandLine>%systemdrive%\final-x64.bat</CommandLine>
    <Order>1</Order>
    </SynchronousCommand>
    </FirstLogonCommands>
    </component>
    </settings>

    Now I mount my WIM, and copy that batch files to the root of the mount folder which is equivalent to the root of the system drive when installed. The batch file contains something like this:

    NET USE W: \\Server\Folder Password /USER:Username

    echo Installing Firefox
    "W:\Firefox.exe"
    CLS
    echo Installing WinRAR
    "W:\wrar.exe" -s

    NET USE /DELETE W:

    Obviously change the NET USE command accordingly to your network and account information.

    In your case, you might want to make that batch file just point to a batch file on the server and run from there. I also have UAC disabled via vLite. It might interfere with things, though not sure since I never run UAC.

    Hopefully that gives you a starting point. Maybe not the most efficient way, but it works fine for me.

  2. Well it's the Microsoft MCE one, I bought it quite a while ago during the XP days. In device manager it shows as the eHome Infrared Receiver.

    The drivers are always pre-installed when Media Center exists, but since I've removed it, the drivers are gone with it.

    EDIT: Well I just copied over the System32\Drivers folder from another non-modified Vista and that worked. Maybe not the best of ways but whatever.

  3. Well hopefully somebody can help me out here...

    I removed Media Center from my Vista install with vLite, though I was hoping it wouldn't take out all the drivers but apparently it did. I still need the drivers for my IR receiver which I use with MediaPortal.

    So I'm wondering where abouts I can find them to transfer over to my HTPC without reinstalling Vista with media center that is.

  4. Hello,

    I couldn't seem to find any simple way of doing this here or else where.

    All I really want to do is just get the key to be pre-entered into the installation. Nothing else.

    A seemingly simple task, has only found complex ways of doing so. I want it to be on the DVD as well, not on another CD/USB/Floppy.

    Thanks for any help :thumbup

  5. I'm also having the same problem as you described. I too am using a WMP11 Addon (Boooggy's Vanilla Addon). I really would like to have WMP11 integrated but if it's causing this problem then I'll have to do without it for now.
