  1. We will soon. Soon? How soon is "soon"? That message was written April 20th and it is now almost September. Come on guys I think there are many eager people (like me) who want to see your project completed instead of sticky's.
  2. As a sticky or as the Unattended Tutorial section?
  3. Just a quick question. Someone a while back said they were creating an unattended vista guide (in fact I think this thread was meant to stir public input into such). I have read all the posts here and I notice that Fitzban2 made a great first step on June 22 or page 4 of this thread. Is it possible to get something organized so that newbs like me (or worse ) can get a crack at this. I realize there are some bugs still around but I'm asking this because I feel like getting something up to speed maybe even starting a PDF on it. So far I have been able to get Vista RC1 5600, BDD 2007, MMC 3.0 downloaded. I have also been able to make the unattended XML file. I just need to recreate my ISO and put it to the test. I notice the the SIM has the capability to include software on the image. I'm curious if anyone has been able to include in their ISO any drivers and/or applications. If so, did the apps work for you.? Also, what's the BDD workbench for? Why elements of it look similar to the WSIM?
  4. Ok I have CorelDraw Suite 12 on my unattended CD source on my hard drive. I downloaded the SP1 for corel which is called CGS12SP1EN.msp This is a windows installer so I'm not that familiar with it. When I use the /? switch it gives this info later on down the screen: Update Options /update <Update1.msp>[;Update2.msp] Applies update(s) What would be the correct syntax to update my Corel source under $oem$? The locations are as follows: C:\CGS12SP1EN.msp I:\2XPCD\$OEM$\$1\Install\COREL12 Thanks!
  5. I'm going to work on it and see. The other post said that he\you couldn't see any differences with modifying the PID number. I'll test and let all know.
  6. Hmmm, based on your response I googled for setupp.ini and here is what I came up with. http://www.thetechguide.com/howto/setuppini.html Thanks for your help.
  7. Are you doing this through runonceex??? What's your code look like? I'm curious to get this working for me.
  8. Ok what gives? I did that and FF doesn't install! Am I missing something? I got "Firefox Setup" directly from the mozilla.com site, put it into my $oem$ and added this to my runonceex.cmd REG ADD %KEY%\005 /VE /D "FireFox 1.5" /f REG ADD %KEY%\005 /V 1 /D "%PP%Firefox Setup -ms" /f
  9. Maybe they all have full version XP and really don't care. But form that link you gave it seems as though home users are left to fend for themselves. It seems like the unattended install was meant for IT people that have to do a task hundreds or thousands of times. (not too much different than home users in some cases )
  10. Is this Correct? REG ADD %KEY%\085 /VE /D "Corel Draw Suite 12" /f REG ADD %KEY%\085 /V 1 /D "%PP%\corel12\setup.exe /S /v/qn" /f REG ADD %KEY%\085 /v 2 /D regedit /s "%PP%\corel12\corel.reg"
  11. To follow up, setup does indeed ask for the Windows 98 CD to verify that there is a qualifying product. Does anyone know what files XP Upgrade looks for on the 98 CD or on the hard drive if it is not a clean install?? There HAS to be a workaround!
  12. Murman, Thanks for your help, but Corel Draw 12 will not install in administrative because it won't take the product key that way. I've tried. I copied my Corel CD to $OEM$ and call the installation up from there using shark7's method. What exactly would the line look like in runonceex to execute the .cmd?? Or is that where you do it??
  13. How do I copy in runonceex?? For instance, I have file xyz.exe in my $oem$ folder that is copied over to c:\installs during setup. If I want it to be copied to c:\program files\abc (either instead of c:\installs or from c:\installs) , what would the runonceex code(s) look like???
  14. Hmm, interesting. Never? When I first came across the Unattended guide and followed the instructions, for some reason it did not ask me to put the Win98 Cd in to be verified. I can't figure the reason out. I would like to know what does XP setup look for in order to satisfy the upgrade requirement. Someone else had the same idea: http://msfn.org/board/index.php?act=ST&f=34&t=72193
