Vista SP1 unattended


 Share

Recommended Posts

Okay, so i received the Vista with SP1 iso and i copied the install.wim into my source and recreated my own unattended iso.

All phases are running fine, except the OOBE pass where i have the Networklocation tweak that pre-answers the Home/Work/Public question.

It fails the install on this last pass with an error message, but when i remove the Networklocation tweaks it goes through.

The down side is that it then comes up with the networklocation question again :(

Is copying the SP1 install.wim into my pre-SP1 unattended DVD okay?

Or should i add the Autounattend and packages etc from my pre-SP1 and add them to the new DVD?

Any help is appreciated.

That would be the route you'd want to take.

It works, and is easy. I was glad that I did not even have to run WAIK again, it just worked out of the box.

Strange that i was thinking about adding the SP1 .wim to my custom DVD and not the other way around!

Comparing my pre-SP1 source and the SP1 DVD, there are more files and a lot of files have changed.

I have now switched around my stuff and put it on the new DVD :)

Back to testing to see if i can now completely remove those Networklocation tweaks.

Thanks!

i have been testing the new dvd image from microsoft and is working great. Just to be sure, i recreated the autounattend.xml manually in WAIK.

I have no problems with the OOBE or the network location.

for programs and other extras i have organized things myself in a way that it just takes some minutes to copy over stuff to the new media and thats it.

Can any of you post your working Autounattend.xml with Vista Enterprise SP1? I am trying to figure out as to why it does not install on different vendors with my pre sp1 xml. It errors out when using this command in the specialize phase: %WINDIR%\system32\sysprep\sysprep.exe /quiet /audit. Thanks

Hi elajua,

could you post your autounattend.xml please ? Did you use the new WAIK 1.1 to create your new unattend file for the Vista Ultimate SP1 DVD or the old WAIK ? Are you using Audit mode ?

We are having a few problems with Audit mode and the product key in this thread thats why we would be very curious how you did it :hello:

Thanks a lot !

Hi MC, hi elajua,

yeah I know that I can use any xml from a previous Vista RTM installation with Vista SP1 THEORETICALLY :whistle:

In reality, this will lead to interactive logon errors and broken installations if audit mode is being used as it is recommended in the guides here on MSFN and other sites. See this thread for details.

@elajua:

Yeah, please post your working xml if possible. If you do not use audit mode, in which mode do you install applications etc. ?

Thanks,

Alex

Here is my xml. I install programs and other things in FirstLogonCommands without any problems so far. The only think i do apart from this is to run my tweaks in Setupcomplete.cmd so i can avoid UAC prompts when installing things.

Hi !

Thanks, elajua for the xml.

The only think i do apart from this is to run my tweaks in Setupcomplete.cmd so i can avoid UAC prompts when installing things.

Do you mean that during FirstLogonCommands you cannot apply registry tweaks or UAC will kick in ? Is this normal in OOBE System phase ?

Thanks,

Alex

Don't know thats the case during setup, as I normally disable UAC.

I apply my tweak using Setupcomplete.cmd. Look for it in the WAIK help to learn how it works.

I made test months ago using FirstLogonCommands for tweaks but they were not applied entirely.
