Automatic USB Installation

Recommended Posts

I'm having an issue similar to the user in another post, where an n-lite custom installation will not autodetect USB devices at the logon screen or run thru the wizard automatically. This affects my most common hardware peripherals like Mice and Keyboards and has quickly become a pain in my side as I would really prefer to use my n-lite CD.

It really becomes a problem when you've ghosted 30 computers off of one hooked to a KVM then you go to deploy it and you plug a mouse and keyboard right in and they won't work because it insists on running the found new hardware wizard with a user logged in, someone want to figure this one out?

Forgive me for not fully understanding nLite's logging, but does the sheer presence of the usbpoll entry indicate that you've changed the polling rate? I ask because 125 is the default so it wouldn't make sense if that were the case. However, if you did in fact change the polling rate, that would cause USB drivers to become unsigned which would probably explain why the hardware won't automatically install.

I'll give it a shot I'll redo my nlite CD today and leave that page out altogether and see what happens. Also to add info to the issue, it doesn't matter if I use integrator to pull your pack in or if I let n-lite do it.

it would appear we are spot on, this causes driver recompression which in turn causes it to hang and not install drivers silently for USB devices, however, once logged in it wants to finish driver installation

I'd like to know this too, and I'm bumping an ancient topic because 1) it's what I found when I searched, and 2) it's better than starting a whole new topic to discuss this problem yet again.

I do seem to have the same problem... it seems nLite almost always causes this problem no matter what I do. Until recently, that is, when yesterday morning I had to repair Windows on my laptop so I made a matching, untweaked/unpatched/un"option"ed nLite installation from which to "repair" my Windows installation. I only removed components I removed on the original installation (using oeminfo.ini to guide me, damnit, why can't nLite include Last Session.ini in the windows folder?), which included no drivers. But nLite still did driver recompression, which worried me that driver.cab wouldn't be "signed" anymore. But sure enough, I go to plug a USB keyboard/mouse receiver in, and it installed all its 5 or 6 components without any New Hardware dialogs. I had those before and it was driving me nuts!

So what is it that not-tweaking did, that caused it to work right this time? The patches I usually do on every nLite CD are, 100 connections, no USB polling change, disable SFC, and enable uxtheme patch. I usually leave all drivers in place for my main PC's OS so I can use it as a reference on other PCs, but no matter what I always got the new hardware boxes.

I think I'm going to play around with virtual PCs for a while, see if I can't figure it out myself while I wait for the never-coming helpful reply. :D

You're right! For some unknown reason, all these times I had been re-using my Last Session.ini files from one PC to the next, I always had "remove cat files" checked under the integration advanced options. Nuhi should really put those options more out in the open - nobody needs that much space for an integration list!

Anywho, looks like I got my question answered. Now the question is, how are so many people having this problem (by a search, it seems really common!) without really knowing about having checked that option? =\

I agree, put all where "Advanced" is or change the colour of Advanced, a quick fix.

I mean:

Instead of Advanced, have Direct Integration there, and all the others on the right side.....

Would be much better to get the info when holding the mouse over it than in Advanced.

Well those options are Advanced so you don't tamper them too much, also I don't see what is unclear about this:

"Remove Catalog files"

"If you integrate more than 150 hotfixes you can use this to speedup install. This will be applied only if SFC is disabled in the Options - Patches.

Caution: This will cause more prompting for driver installations, making them unsigned."

If this CAT perversion wasn't requested so much I would never put such option, it's not big, not in the memory, not on my radar.

I have this exact same problem for months now. This is a serious issue which needs some attention.

My first test without removed catalog files was unsuccessful... I do use a custom logonui.exe, could that be the cause?
