The Perfect Unattended Cd!


 Share

Recommended Posts

I finally managed to make it!

The Perfect Unattended CD (at least, the way I wanted it to be)

This is the method I used:

- Created a I386\WINNT.SIF file



[Data]
MsDosInitiated = 0
UnattendedInstall = Yes

[Unattended]
UnattendMode = FullUnattended
UnattendSwitch = Yes
OemPreinstall = No
OemSkipEula = Yes
FileSystem = *
WaitForReboot = No
NoWaitAfterTextMode = 1
NoWaitAfterGUIMode = 1
TargetPath = "Windows"
DriverSigningPolicy = Ignore
NonDriverSigningPolicy = Ignore
Hibernation = No
AutoActivate=No

[SystemFileProtection]
SFCQuota = 0

[Display]
BitsPerPel = 32
Xresolution = 1024
Yresolution = 768
Vrefresh = 70

[GuiUnattended]
AutoLogon = Yes
AdminPassword = *
TimeZone = 35
OEMSkipRegional = 1
OemSkipWelcome = 1

[Shell]
DefaultThemesOff = Yes
DefaultStartPanelOff = Yes

[UserData]
ProductKey = "XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX"
ComputerName = "STATION"
FullName = "User"

[RegionalSettings]
Language = 1009

[Identification]
JoinWorkgroup = "WORKGROUP"

[TapiLocation]
CountryCode=1
Dialing=Tone

[Networking]

[Componants]
msmsgs=off
msnexplr=off
Dialer=off
Fp_extensions=off
media_clips=off
Accessopt=off
hypertrm=off

[Shell]
DefaultStartPanelOff=Yes

[WindowsFirewall]
Profiles = WindowsFirewall.TurnOffFirewall

[WindowsFirewall.TurnOffFirewall]
Mode = 0

[GUIRunOnce]
%systemdrive%\Windows\system32\start.cmd

As you may have noticed, the OEMPreinstall=No

Therefore, no $OEM$ folder will be copied upon the install, making the next step a requirement, but allowing for F6 to be pressed at the start of an install to include drivers from a drivers disk. This WINNT.SIF file needs to be placed in the I386 folder.

- Modified the I386\TXTSETUP.SIF so that a START.CMD file gets copied in

system32 folder (this file contains tweaks and needs to be placed in I386)

START.CMD

ECHO Detecting the CD-Rom Drive
for %%i in (C: D: E: F: G: H: I: J: K: L: M: N: O: P: Q: R: S:) do if exist %%i\win51ip.SP2 set CDROM=%%i

ECHO.
ECHO Installing GoogleToolbar
ECHO Please wait...
start /wait %CDROM%\install\GoogleToolbarInstaller.exe /qn /d
echo.
echo Installing WinZip 9.0
md %systemdrive%\"Program Files"\winzip
copy %CDROM%\install\$Progs\WinZip\*.* %systemdrive%\"Program Files"\WinZip
start /wait %systemdrive%\"Program Files"\winzip\winzip32.exe /noqp /autoinstall
echo Installation complete!

echo Cleaning Up... Please Wait
del "%allusersprofile%\start menu\WinZip.lnk"
del "%allusersprofile%\desktop\WinZip.lnk"
del "%allusersprofile%\start menu\Programs\WinZip\Uninstall WinZip.lnk"
del "%allusersprofile%\start menu\Programs\WinZip\Help Manual.lnk"
del "%allusersprofile%\start menu\Programs\WinZip\ReadMe.txt.lnk"
del "%allusersprofile%\start menu\Programs\WinZip\What's New.lnk"

echo deleting useless icons
del "%allusersprofile%\start menu\windows catalog.lnk"
del "%allusersprofile%\start menu\Set program access and defaults.lnk"

echo Applying Registry Tweaks
start /wait REGEDIT /S %CDROM%\install\regtweaks.reg

echo Rebooting the computer
shutdown /r /t 00

This file has been created to use files directly on the CD-Rom. It first determines the CD-Rom drive letter and then silently installs the google toolbar. Then it copies the winzip files from CD\install\$Progs\WinZip to the hard drive and silently installs winzip. For these operations to work, you need to put the google toolbar installer in CD\install and a copy of a working winzip folder (found in program files) in the CD\install\$Progs\WinZip.

Once the Google toolbar and Winzip are installed, it applies the system tweaks and calls a reboot to ensure that the settings are properly applied

- Created a REGTWEAKS.REG to be placed in CD\Install

Of course, you are free to use any tweaks you like. Just be careful though: some tweaks that improve NTFS performance will cause you problems with Windows Installer. Some apps will not install properly (namely: MySQL 4.1, VMWare, The VMTools...) These tweaks have been tested and seems up to now to give a stable windows build.

That's it! This gives you a CD that only asks for partitionning while allowing you all options relating to formatting and File System of your install. It supports the use of F6 to specify additionnal drivers and installs a few basic softwares.

Use this to make your own adapted CD's! Feel free to customize these files :)

A Big thanks to your guyz at MSFN.ORG. All the files displayed here are the results of hours of work based solely on this site as a source of information. Yet another thanks to the guyz at VMWare that made the testing a whole lot faster :D

I felt it could be useful to people who are new to unatteded setups to have a full guide right-through that supports "F6 driver disk" since this is not a feature I can

go without and everywhere I looked it told me that F6 wouldn't work on unattended... Well... Gotcha!

To make this guide complete, I forgot to mention:

To start, make a copy of your Windows XP CD to a temp dir of your hard drive

Then, create the files as specified in the 1st post.

Download xp sp2 from microsoft and slipstream it on your cd

(ie.: execute the sp2 with the option /integrate:"c:\temp"

assuming that you copied the files to c:\temp. This will integrate the service

pack in your cd.

Finally, use DoISO to create the iso of your Unattented CD!

DoISO is found on msfn.org:

http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?act=At...pe=post&id=4358

That's about it! Enjoy...

Questions:

1. No Drivers Pack?

2. No integrated hotfixes?

3. No integrated slipstream media players?

4. No use of RunOnceEx.cmd or WPI or Xplode?

5. No hacked Notepad, background, Themes, shell32.dll?

6. No move to or copy to dll ?

7. No software to be installed?

8. No winntbbu.dll

9. How will your unattended work with SATA or RAID? no drivers?

Let me burst your bubble even more ;) I believe cmdlines.txt won't run either without OEMPreinstall=Yes. So for example, you can't apply any regtweaks to all users.

@Astalavista: I believe that's why he wants F6 to work, for his SATA/RAID drivers :)

i dont think it is perfect. One major flaw. you dont hv integrated drivers.

otherwise knows as Bashrat's Drivers Pack.

if you hv SATA or Raid your unattended wont work very well.

your not using RunonceEX.cmd, Xplode, or WPI.

you dont hv integrated hacked programs like media player 10 slipstreamed,

good work for a base Unattended though.  :thumbup

Quite frankly I chose not not integrate drivers... I made F6 work instead... I own a P5AD2 Premium, and used the CD to install on it today... it harbors a Silicon Image Sil3114 Raid that worked perfect with a little driver disk...

I agree though that updates should be added already on the cd... that's a flaw indeed... Next's week's challenge :)

Indeed, not all my tweaks applied to all users...

I just created a new user and it had it all but this one:

It's view was not in details :(

I thought of using the method with the setup.exe replacement, to

run my tweaks earlier in the install, but abandonned the idea to

keep the cd as integral as possible. This way if MS updates the

setup.exe file in a future SP, i'm not in trouble...

But it's quite a good start already...

i use bashrat mass storage drivers (that includes controllers for my sil3112) and i still have the f6 hotkey support. not sure but i think this piece of code makes the difference

I felt it could be useful to people who are new to unatteded setups to have a full guide right-through that supports "F6 driver disk" since this is not a feature I can

go without and everywhere I looked it told me that F6 wouldn't work on unattended... Well... Gotcha!

That's odd, I mentioned this on this site several times and so have many others. I'll grant you that we get tired of answering it, so some threads go uncorrected.

F6 for Drivers

Let me burst your bubble even more  I believe cmdlines.txt won't run either without OEMPreinstall=Yes. So for example, you can't apply any regtweaks to all users.

@Astalavista: I believe that's why he wants F6 to work, for his SATA/RAID drivers

Tsunami i missed that one. Correct so his regtweaks wont register at T-9

Another 2 bubbles to burst ;)

First, cmdlines.txt will be run if it exists. No uA install, no OEMpreinstall values needed. Just make a $OEM$ folder and put cmdlines.txt in it and it will work straight out.

Second, cmdlines is executed at T-12. If you'd like to know, its a fact that if at all you applied regtweaks at T-9, there's NO way it will stick.

Hmm.... so what is it you have to do to have unattended *AND* F6 drivers as well?

Well, this may or may not work for you. I don't ever use the oempreinstall=yes so that the "F6 to load drivers" remains available. I just copy all the files that I need to the proper places on the hard drive by inserting a custom compiled copy program as the first line of svcpack.inf. It's tedious to program out all the copies, however it's worth it to me even though I integrate some drivers. I also use my custom program to add the reg tweaks and do any oddball installs at this point.

Note: This is more or less a quote from the post that I pointed to.
