  1. I had that issue once with a file being open. I had to manually download it and pass it something like a "-o" argument to get it on. That worked in my case.
  2. I'm pretty sure that's the way it's done now. I just checked an ISO on Technet, and it has .msp files in the updates folder.
  3. Trinity Rescue Kit is another fine option for resetting or blanking the password.
  4. If your options are the same, one file should work. In your case, you could potentially have 2 different keys, which might be an issue. I use one file for both my x86 and x64 installs. I did have to create one for each, and then I merged them. Does that help? Here is a quick example: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend"> <settings pass="specialize"> <component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <ProductKey>XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX</ProductKey> <TimeZone>Eastern Standard Time</TimeZone> <DisableAutoDaylightTimeSet>false</DisableAutoDaylightTimeSet> </component> </settings> <settings pass="specialize"> <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"> <ProductKey>XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX</ProductKey> <DisableAutoDaylightTimeSet>false</DisableAutoDaylightTimeSet> <TimeZone>Eastern Standard Time</TimeZone> </component> </settings> <cpi:offlineImage cpi:source="wim:v:/slipstream/windowssevenenterprisecombined/sources/install.wim#ENTERPRISEX86" xmlns:cpi="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:cpi" /> </unattend>
  5. I've had no stability issues with Windows 3.11 for WorkGroups.
  6. Depending on what filesystem it is (ext3, reiserfs, etc), there are a number of windows utilities that you can install to read the drive.
  7. When you say created a custom CD, it leaves a lot of guessing. How did you create it? Did you remove components? Did you add anything? Are you doing an AIO?
  8. I would be very suspect of licenses on eBay. I'm not saying that there aren't legitimate licenses out there for a bargain, but if it seems too good to be true... then it probably is.
  9. Nothing on Technet yet (integrated ISOs).... here's hoping e get more than just the installers.
  10. I integrated using this link and had no issues on either x86 or x64 flavors. http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2008/06/2...eaming-ie8.aspx
  11. Didn't you delete a bunch of the game profiles from it? It makes sense to me that it would be smaller.
  12. Well, you can't have 2 copies of the same file in the same place....
  13. I say you're doing too much work. You only need to apply SP2 as it contains all of the updates included in SP1. But the rest of your process looks reasonable.
  14. It's probably not vlite causing the issue. I was getting that error on my machine (stock install). I got it and reported it on every beta release and it was finally fixed in RC2. When I downloaded the final build, it wouldn't install again....
  15. I'd also like to add that most manufacturers (Dell, Sony, etc) won't put the XP drivers on their sites but if you go to the actual hardware manufacturers site, you will find the drivers you seek.
  16. I have this problem on Vista w/ Office 2007... It's not just an older version of Office problem. I've found it best to copy my document to my desktop and edit it there and then copy it back to the usb drive.
  17. And Texas Hold 'em.... They tried to pass off some bitlocker tool as an extra.... but I think it's actually more of an enhancement to the existing bitlocker system.
  18. More language packs.... I think they missed Swahili. I'd like to see maybe a few more of the games that they were working at one point in time. Some new themes would be nice too.
  19. Out of curiosity... check your system BIOS. My Dell had BT and WiFi on the same chipset and about 20 configuration options via the BIOS menu. While i Haven't noted any symptoms similar to yours, it's worth a check.
  20. Win+R also launches the run dialog.
  21. Yes, but of course, that would violate your EULA.
  22. Here is the workaround.... http://www.dailytech.com/Workaround+Discov...article5932.htm 1. Boot from the Windows Vista Upgrade DVD and start the setup program. 2. When prompted to enter your product key, DO NOT enter it. Click "Next" and proceed with setup. This will install Windows Vista as a 30-day trial. 3. When prompted, select the edition of Vista which you have purchased and continue with setup. 4. Once setup has been completed and you have been brought to the desktop for the first time, run the install program from within Windows Vista. 5. This time, type in your product key when prompted. 6. When asked whether to perform an Upgrade or Custom (advanced) install, choose Custom (advanced) to perform a clean install of Vista. Yes, this means that you will have to install Vista for a second time. 7. Once setup has completed for the second time, you should be able to activate Windows Vista normally. You can also delete the Windows.old directory which contains information from the first Vista install.
  23. The real question here is what files does the upgrade look for and can we get away with just sticking those files on a blank hard drive and installing Vista. While it may still be a cumbersone process, at least the upgrade would be somewhat smooth.
