  1. @Astalavista: Did you get NIS2005 to install and activate silently? 'Cause I still can't get this to work...
  2. Nope that didn't work either. RunOnceEx adds the regentry and copy the file symlcrst.dll prior to installing NIS2005, reboots with shutdown.exe, logs on with the same username after reboot. Still no go. It is installed, but it take ages for the configuration wizard to appear, and then it hangs. Doing it manually, adding to the reg, copy the file, and start silent install from start/run work......... Strange....... I've triple checked my syntax, and there is nothing wrong with it. I wonder if the shell has to be loaded? When does your batch file execute? I had NIS2004 working before unattended, but thisone puzzles me.....
  3. Thank you for answering. I'm thinking it has something to do with that I autologon with the admin account during install, RunOnceEx executes, then I'm reseting the welcome-screen, oobe, to be able to choose/create another username when the computer has restarted. I don't think it works when another username logs on before Norton's configuration wizard is run... Testing is in progress......
  4. bah.. I tried this on an already installed machine, adding the symlcrst.dll and the reg entries manually, and then started a silent install of NIS 2005 through start/run. Restarted the computer and it worked perfectly! However, when I transfer the exact same procedure to install through RunOnceEX it doesn't work The last line in ez_log.html indicates that the 'service failed to start'. It copies the symlcrst.dll, and enters the reg settings before starting the unattended install... Any ideas?
  5. Nice work, will try asap! Hmmmm. I wonder if the value at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\CCPD-LC\KStore\00000083\00000028\000000d8 is dependent on the key? I see different values in jrf2027 and DLF's posts, and I have yet another value...
  6. This will tell you how to get the boot files for windows 2003. http://flyakite.msfnhosting.com/server2003.htm The folder $WIN_NT$.~BT contains your 'bootdisk' files...
  7. When you run the setup from a win32 environment, it won't read the winnt.sif. What you do is specify an answerfile in the setup command line, for example: winnt32.exe /unattend:winnt.txt Where winnt.txt is a renamed winnt.sif, with the same content.
  8. It is in the deploy.cab in the support/tools folder on the Windows 2000 CD... (thanx to Bilou_Gateux for pointing that out to me earlier). You must copy it to System32 otherwise you can't add to the registry through batch files in Win2k. Nice work on the list, btw.
  9. The _x means the file is not compressed on the cd, without the _x it would be named sp4.ca_, a compressed cab file. Do you have all the w2k marker files both in the root of the DVD, and in the folder \SETUP\2000\2000-PRO-SP4? The marker files for w2k pro sp4 are: CDROM_IP.5 CDROM_NT.5 CDROMSP4.TST Try also to put the marker files in the boot folder, to see if that makes any difference. I remember having a trouble somewhat like this with w2k3, and putting the marker files in the boot folder solved it.
  10. The guide I wrote was for the 'beta' theme ripped from mce2005 beta. The files available from Microsoft today as the TabletPC 2005 Theme might not work. I've heard some people having issues with the copy process during install. Something about not being a valid microsoft file, and other errors. Don't know why, though. If you use the exe file available on another post of mine in this thread, and install it through svcpack.inf it will work.
  11. 1. Yes, if you use the swedish language servicepack. 2. Yes As for the shrinking part, I'm not sure, as I've never done it. But I think it should be ok...
  12. [SetupHotfixesToRun] "MP10Setup.exe /c:""setup_wm.exe /Q /R:N /DisallowSystemRestore"" /q:A" Works....
  13. Check out my post in this thread: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=29908 There's an attached exe that lets you run the Out of Box Experience, entering cd-key and naming computer and so on, maybe it something like that you're looking for?
  14. Any of the above methods should work, your choice, but I think you'll have to add a "cd2-marker" file in the root of the dvd. Create a file named WIN51IP2, no extension.
  15. Does it have to be after the t-9 minutes? Otherwise this inf will change the value for you: [Version] Signature="$Windows NT$" [DefaultInstall] AddReg= Oobe.Reg [Oobe.Reg] HKLM,"SYSTEM\Setup","CmdLine",0x00010000,"%11%\oobe\msoobe.exe /f" HKLM,"SYSTEM\Setup","SetupType",0x00010001,2 HKLM,"SYSTEM\Setup","OobeInProgress",0x00010001,1 And the attached exe is an iexpress installer of that inf, could maybe be run via svcpack.inf (haven't tried). It can be run after logon, or at RunOnceEx, to 'reset' the welcome screen (have tried..). Oobe.EXE
  16. @ Ao©: Don't know, haven't tried, but it should work from cmdlines.txt.... Try it. @ Adiel: Sorry mate, out of clues... Strange svcpack.inf you have. Is Royale.exe all you have in [setupHotfixesToRun]? Are you using XPCreate or nLite or someother tool?
  17. @Adiel: If you remove the line DefaultStartPanelOff = Yes from [shell], it will work. Once again, all you need under the [shell] section is: [Shell] CustomDefaultThemeFile = "%Systemroot%\Resources\Themes\Royale.Theme" Taken from ref.chm:
  18. Do you have a svcpack.inf? If so, add the line royale.exe to it under the section [setupHotfixesToRun], no switches: [Version] Signature="$Windows NT$" MajorVersion=5 MinorVersion=1 BuildNumber=2600 [SetupData] CatalogSubDir="\i386\svcpack" [ProductCatalogsToInstall] [SetupHotfixesToRun] Royale.exe Place the file royale.exe in your \i386\svcpack folder. To use this theme as default, add this line to winnt.sif: [Shell] CustomDefaultThemeFile = "%Systemroot%\Resources\Themes\Royale.Theme" "DefaultThemesOff = No" should not be a problem, but it is not needed as it is the default setting. This is tested and working, if you can not get it to work with these instructions, some regtweak or something must be wrong. When your install is done, do you get the classic style start menu, or the default fancy, blue winxp start menu?
  19. Here's an exe I've made with the Royale Theme, including olive green, silver and blue color style, that works with every version of Windows XP, it also includes the 3D Windows XP screensaver... Royale Theme All WinXP This can be installed via svcpack.inf, just add the line Royale.exe without switches. To have it as default theme when the install is done, add this to winnt.sif: [Shell] CustomDefaultThemeFile = "%Systemroot%\Resources\Themes\Royale.Theme"
  20. If you do like mazin says, it will work on any version of WinXP.
  21. Extract it with winzip, winrar or something similar. The exe works only on TabletPC...
  22. Microsoft has released the Royale theme from Windows Media Center 2005 to the general public: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...&DisplayLang=en Looks nice... *EDIT* The exe works only on TabletPC but you can extract the files with winzip, winrar or something, and place it in your themes dir on Windows XP *EDIT*
  23. *DELETED* The official theme-pack's exe works only on TabletPC... Here is the link anyway: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...&DisplayLang=en
  24. What I did to make it work was to have the files in $oem$\muiinst, then this line in cmdlines.txt: [Commands] "muiinst\muisetup.exe -i 0407 -d 0407-r -s" Somehow the /i /d /r /s switches didn't work, but the -i -d -r -s did....
