Post Setup Query


Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me if there is a way with the NTLite Beta tool I just purchased to be able to prompt for a computername and also then join the domain post setup ?


Im totally new to this and cant seem to find a way to get this working :- I'm using a DELL DVD of Win7 to test with that has its own unattended setup so I don't want to break that and was told the best way was to create a post setup script to prompt for the info ?

Hi mattd25b, so you would like the tool to edit the existing unattended setup. It doesn't support that yet, it creates the entire file from the entered data on the Unattended page.


Have you tried removing the computer name entry from your unattended file (autounattend.xml in the root)?

It would be something like:

<settings pass="specialize">
<component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">

You could delete the entire component element, and you can test it in a virtual machine like VMWare Player or HyperV as an ISO (you can create one from that folder with NTLite).


Joining a domain option will be in the next version due to multiple requests, out in a few days. If you want to edit manually before that, let me know.
