Disable minimum system requirements?


 Share

Recommended Posts


Hello again!

If you're talking about the performance test, than you can skip it by setting SkipMachineOOBE=true. This will cause a warning in WSIM, but it will skip the whole welcome procedure. AFAIK there is no other way to skip that test.

It has some disadvantages, too. It will ignore you're network location setting in Autounattend.xml for example. But you can come around this with Regtweaks.

Actually I was aiming at the check at first boot that will stop you from installing if you don't meet the minimum requirements.

I've started to pull this thing apart and from the looks of it will 256mb of memory do just fine, so I need to remove that check that will popup and demand 512mb system memory.

that is actually something built into the WinPE, not sure that it can be changed, if you wanted to ignore it you could always make a bart pe and load the WIM file on it and launch the WIM fine with Imagex

Hi Clint,

To skip that check, in Autounattend.xml, ensure that ComplianceCheck=Never.

Here it is with all the extra junk that the unattended xml code demands:

<settings pass="windowsPE">
<component name="Microsoft-Windows-Setup" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
<ComplianceCheck>
<DisplayReport>Never</DisplayReport>
</ComplianceCheck>
</component>

FireGeier, that problem is solved by ensuring that NetworkLocation is configured from the oobeSystem pass.

EDIT: I can't get this to work...!

Are you sure it should be a "windowsPE" title and then component name "Microsoft-Windows-Setup" ?

Thanks!

I still get that darn "minimum 512mb" popup..!

Please guide me here... :whistle:

Thanks!

Look forward to it.

Testing my current vers Home atm & appears to unattended no probs. I found a few things so far that its far more reliable using the waik to alter the image & answer file + validate. Opposed to just editing the ans file directly with notepad etc.

Don't know for sure but with my testing found a min amount of info is required for the unattend to work flawless.

Also do not put too many unneccessary fields in there or windows will take too long to parse.

Will post my xml when fully tested.

Yes, a verified working basic config sample would be benefitial to a lot of newbies like me.

Thanks fellas!

:)

..the weird part is that I get my AutoUnattend passed in WAIK but it still hangs at the end of install..

..and it changes the resolution in the beginning of install so it obviously passes the entries before that...very odd.

My vLite'd install source seems to refuse to install for some reason, might be something on the xml, so unfortunately it'll remain in test till the weekend. :(

EDIT: i'm noticing that posts are being formatted in weird way after submit? For example, I did not ask for a line break in above sentence.

Ask Nuhi where he has hidden the Unattended that is created with Vlite, or he has done a sxs package or similar...maybe in the system or components hive as well.

I seriously doubt he will answer though... :rolleyes:

Oh isn't that my bitter pal Clint taunting me again.

prathapml,

vLite doesn't use any unattended xml or anything, it does all directly.

If something for sure isn't working on vlited install and exactly the same file confirmed working on the full install then check which entries actually can't hold on...something removed. For example setting up Windows Mail with Mail removed might trigger that response. OR Images removed. Try Apply method 1. And what is the error...you may answer that with the bug report on the vLite forum.
