Import a reg file with the following contents during GuiRunOnce

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation]
"DisableAutoDaylightTimeSet"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W32Time\Parameters]
"Type"="NoSync"

In the root of your source folder create a folder named $OEM$.

Inside $OEM$ create another folder called $1.

Open up notepad and paste that code. Save the file as time.reg (or whatever name you like).

Move time.reg to $1.

In your nlite run select Unattended when your at Task Selection (in addition to your other tasks of course).

Once at Unattended, under General tab > OEM Preinstall select Enabled.

Under RunOnce tab paste this -> regedit /s %SystemDrive%\time.reg

Click add

That's it.

thanks, i will try this.

btw,

1) the file time.reg, will be copied to hd ?

2) when that import will occur? after the windows installed? or before?

3) all the files in that OEM folder are going to be in %SystemDrive% ? i didnt understand how the reg file will be found..

many thanks!

No, the root folder is the folder that contains i386. $OEM$ should be parallel to i386 not in i386.

Didn't notice that flaw in that image.

That image was created for distribution shares where $OEM$ should be in i386. when using a bootable CD $OEM$ should be in the root of the CD.
