  1. I've noticed that if I install Windows 10 (Home or Pro) from a USB stick (presumably works with DVD too) that it will install a recovery partition on the target computer, but if install via PXE network share it will not install a recovery partition Does anyone know how to enable recovery creation as part of the install process? I've been using the April 2018 ISO downloaded via the Windows USB Install utility, The process for installing via pxe is simply a batch script auto mounts windows share on server cd's into the windows 10 setup folder and runs the setup.exe with no parameters. the WinPE that is booted to run the setup is the original boot.wim from the Windows 10 Setup ISO I've looked to see if there is a commandline parameter for installing the recovery partition but couldn't see one.
  2. hello people, i am trying to install windows nt 4. but, i have some problems, and i was hoping you could help me. the problem is happening while setuping the windows. i have windows nt 4 installation cd, and when i insert it, it starts booting, it loads all drivers and stuff, and then it shows windows name, version, memory, processors, and after that screen, windows nt crashes. it displays blue screen of death (bsod) with error title inaccessible_boot_device. before this, i had problem with auto rebooting, before reaching this screen where windows name version and stuff are shown, but i fixed this by changing some settings in basic input output system (bios). since this is happening in the first stage of setup, it means that after windows loads cd driver, that this driver is no longer able to read from installation cd. before this driver is loaded, everything works fine. so, i am trying to figure out what is the problem here? can you please help me. i have gigabyte ga-p35-ds3p motherboard. this is relatively new motherboard. i already runned tests in virtual machine inside windows 10. and the same installation cd works fine, and windows nt 4 installs normal inside this virtual machine. i tried creating virtual machine and selecting windows nt 4 from the menu, and everything works fine. if i try creating new virtual machine and selecting windows 10 for example from the menu, and installing windows nt 4 on this virtual machine, the same thing happens like on my real computer. setup crashes. after modifying settings of virtual machine, in cpu area, and later after modifying the storage controller in those settings, i was able to make this virtual machine working fine. what i did was that i changed machine storage controller from sata to ide controller. so, i figured out that windows nt 4 drivers does not support sata disks, only ide disks. and this is the cause. as you probably assume (since i am running windows 10 on the same computer), this computer is a relatively new computer, and it is intended primary for sata disks. howewer, there is one ide port on the motherboard. and, while atempting setup, i moved cd to that one cd drive which is ide. i have one cd drive which is ide and which is connected to the ide port, not the sata one. i atempted installation, but still the same problem happens. windows nt 4 can not access this disk after it loads its own drivers. i have also tried changeing some settings in bios, but this does not help much. so my question is, how come that windows nt 4 can not access my cd drive, when i moved it on the ide port, and by doing the same thing in virtual machine after experiencing the same problem, this action fixed the problem in the virtual machine? what i need to do to make it run on my real hardware? i mentioned my motherboard model a few paragraphs earlyer, so if anyone knows this motherboard, it might know the answer. thanx, any suggestions are welcome. bye
  3. Hi guys, I'm starting a new mission and I need some help. I have been looking into Linux for the past couple of months and decided Slackware will be best for my needs. I have downloaded the latest mini version http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackboot/mini/14.1/ Now, what I want to do is make this my programming system. The specs are Compaq Armada E500, 30GB HDD, 512MB, DVD-ROM. I want to rebuild the ISO with LXDE http://lxde.org/ The LXDE ISO is 750MB and Slackware is only 53MB. That don't add up! I only want the desktop environment and nothing else. That means no music player, movie player, games, image viewer etc....Here's a tutorial but doesn't show you how to build a full ISO http://slackware.ponce.cc/blog/2010/08/23/easily-build-yourself-lxde-with-sbopkg/ There will one program on this system and the necessary plugins. PYTHON. That's it.
  4. I love using winrar and 7zip for making custom setups. The problem is that winrar doesn't have any finish dialog, the dialog disappears after extracting, how can one have a finish dialog like the actual winrar installer or how can one unhide the comment of actual winrar installer?
  5. I want to change the red zone of the image. I want to know if this is part of a particular ddl, or if I have to change the aero theme to change this. Remember that this is the last part of the setup. It does not use arunimg.dll or spwizimg.dll Thanks
  6. Hi folks, I need help with this issue, I've been googling for hours and can't seem to find anything relating to it (as seems to be the case with a lot of win98 issues). going a bit crazy. I am running Windows 98 under VMWare and have my joystick plugged into a USB 3.0 plug. When I run the Sidewinder install CD, during the step where it asks me to plug the joystick into a USB I get an error message: "Setup is unable to detect whether the controller is connected" I follow the setup instructions, install the win98 drivers, everything but I always get the message and then It also doesn't appear in Gaming Options in the Controllers tab. Once I had even left it plugged in before step 2 of the setup and I saw the stick center and the resistance was there but it still gave me the message. Any ideas?
  7. I'd like to apologise if this has been asked before, but I searched and didn't find the answer I was looking for. In 1.2, the Windows 7 "setup folder" method of creating a USB installer seems to be missing (a previous beta version had that feature where you can point to a directory containing Windows 7 setup files/directories). Is that no longer supported in favor of ISO to USB or are there steps I am not aware of in creating a Windows Setup using a source from a directory? Please advise, thank you.
  8. Dear pro-users of 9x/Me! I need your help to install Windows Me. My motherboard AsRock 775i65G r3.0 officially supports Windows 98SE and Me; AGP 256 MB video by NVidia (6800GT) is also officially supported. Only IDE devices for Millennium are used (HDDs and CD/DVD-Drive). I've already tested Windows 2000 on this machine for a couple of months, and everything worked fine. Now I'm trying to install full retail version of Windows Me on ~25 GB primary partition in the beginning of my 320 GB HDD (other partitions except another following primary ~ 50 GB partition for programs are hidden), but still have no luck. First time I've tried it just to check if it's possible to install Millennium with 2 GB RAM. - No luck, just non-stop reboots. Second time I've removed one 1 GB of 2, so only 1 GB left. Everything was fine until second reboot, then "updated system files, continuing to load" message and... Nothing except blinking cursor right after the words "continuing to load". Now I've tried to install 256 Mb of RAM - everything was fine until second reboot again. Just right after the phrase "updated system files, continuing to load" everything stops. In the beginning white cursor blinks some seconds, then PC itself turns off. When I use 1 GB memory stick, PC just freezes with blinking cursor without shutting down. What problem could it be? What processes are made during this stage of installation (second reboot just before the final part)? Can multi-core CPU affect this? Or installed SATA-drives, which are planning to be used by XP? I want to make Millennium on my PC real! :-) Thank you!
  9. Hi all, So I am trying to install ME on a 2004 (I think) desktop and everything goes swimmingly until the last stage of setup, where the system would normally reboot and configure the start menu, control panel, etc. Here it just freezes ("Completed updating files, continuing to load Windows... *blink blink blink*") I have discovered through trial and error that I am able to start into safe mode successfully. When I do this, if I remove ACPI BIOS from the device manager, the system will boot up normally and get to the desktop. However, when I do this, it does not detect ANY of my peripherals (USB, CD drive, graphics card, etc.) and does not even display anything as an unknown device. (I also tried manually installing Plug and Play failsafe BIOS with the same result.) I don't pretend to know much about ACPI but from my research here and elsewhere I see a lot of people recommending disabling it. I don't really care either way as long as I get a working system where I can use my hardware devices. (So far I have tried disabling it in the registry, BIOS and by using the "/p I" setup switch but none give a clean boot.) So my question is, I guess, if anyone can shed any light on this, or suggest what I can try in order to get the system working normally? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  10. I looked at the 1st three pages of the topic, but of course I didn't find an answer. I suspect that somewhere in the mass of links in the stickies at the top of the topic, my answer can be found buried in there. Please forgive my impatience. When we do a Windows XP unattended installation, there's a point during the 2nd (graphical) phase of setup, where a script can be run. My XP discs would create a default user at this time. Is the same true of Windows 7 and if so, could someone share a couple of links explaining the procedure ? What I'd like to do is launch some preparatory work from one of the RUNONCE keys and setup those registry entries prior to finalization of the system. Thanx for the use of the brain cells...
