nLite 1.3 RC2 - Santa's patch 2

Recommended Posts

My issue is I couldn't set application compatibility to Windows XP successfully in Windows Server 2003 SP1. However, I can set on the rest like Windows 2000, Windows Me but not for XP.

Can someone else confirm KB929969 is working fine with nLite 1.3 RC2 after slipstreaming IE7 on WinXP first?

Here is my issue:

1. Slipstreaming IE7 - no problem

2. Direct integration of KB929969 - no problem

3. Installing Windows - no problem

4. Windows Update says KB929969 is not installed - WTF?

WinXP Pro SP2

nLite 1.3 RC2

Thanks in advance :hello:

Thanks in advance :hello:

All is good XP Pro SP2 using nLite 1.3 RC2 to slipstream RyanVM's RVMUpdatePack2.1.6 and sundry addons from his site, Rougespear's DotNet 1.1 and 2 from SVCPACK and 3 from runonce. Close out after this and reboot, remove all ini's nlite created, then, use nlite to remove components, tweak and slipstream IE 7 plus the hotfix. I've found it is necessessary not to do all at once.

Thanks for the info, RickSteele.

I will download the hotfix again, maybe I'm doing something wrong...

The best way to use Rougespear's DotNet addons, for me, is to run the all-in-one "RogueSpearAddonsDotNET11SP120-VJ1120" from SVCPACK, then run his "030_dotNET30-WSE" from runonce; no other DotNet anything, hotfixes or downloads are required-his runtimes contain all updates etc. I find I have to reboot once after clean install has completed. Lastly, I've included a Word 2003 file I have that explains his various packs etc. This is a dupl of that on his website. You have to register-free- to view and get his downloads.

All was/is done using nLite-1.3.rc2

Just one final note; there are prerequisite updates/hotfixes all of which are contained in RyanVM's or Boooggy's latest update packs. Again, all done with nlite-1.3.rc2 and available via RyanVM's Torrent or website and, for Boooggy, xable's hosted it-all info etc. available here:http://www.ryanvm.net/msfn/

Can anyone clarify exactly how to get the add/rename user portion to work correctly? I recall seeing a post somewhere that said that section was buggy, but fixed in RC2 (no idea where I saw it).

I've tried RC2 as well as 2 older versions of nlite, to create a XPSP2 build, and no matter what I've done, the user I want to create is either nonexistent upon first boot, or exists with an unknown password, so not only does auto-login fail, I am forced to login with Administrator.

I'm not using the encrypted password option, and I've tried creating 2 users, with and without the name and descriptions, with and without a password at all.

Here's my configs.

[Users]
Adminibator|Admin|Admin|True|Administrators|x|False|False|True
NotGuest|GuestUser|Guest|True|Guests|x|False|False|False
kelani|kelaniz|kelani|True|Administrators|x|False|False|True
kelani2|dupekelani|kelani|True|Administrators|x|False|False|True

and...

[Unattended]
ComputerType = Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) PC
HibernationNo
AutoLogon = kelani
LogonCount = 1

Also, should that line

HibernationNo

be that way, or

Hibernation = No

?

That just stood out at me as I was pasting. :)

One more thing.. How is user creation handled by nlite and Windows setup? Is it saved somewhere in the build, or is the INI file read by a batch file, or something? Just wondering if I can edit the INI directly without having to open the program and risk having any accidental or unwanted changes made to the config.

Other than this annoying problem I've been unable to solve, this is an awesome piece of software. The first build I tried, where i packed everything in that I could, removed some things, added others, basically did everything i coudl to screw it up, installed perfectly (minus the user thing) as has every build since then! To me, that's pretty darn impressive, because if there's any possible way to break a program, I usually find it :)

Anyway, if anyone has an answer or a link to where this has already been discussed (If there is one, I sure couldn't find it) I'd be much appreciative. This is the only thing keeping my 2 months-in-design KelXP build from being perfect :)

Thanks in advance,

Kel

I have noticed 3 bugs in this release:

1) Full name is used as username in unnatended (this bug was corrected in previous versions but I guess it poped up again...)

2) The DHCP service is set to automatic but isn't started on first boot (I have to manualy start the service, but it starts on it's own on subsequent boots), I haven't touched the services option so I don't think it's anythind I did. (this happened with 1.2.1 too)

3) When chosing a previous preset some option that were previously selected appear unselected (in component removal and unnatended section). I don't know if I'm doing it right though.. I made a cd with Sp2 and some addons integrated, filled ou tthe unnatended section and made the image. I then started the process again with a gold XP source and selected the previous preset, I then repeated the exact same steps (integrated sp2 and the previous addons) but some options (in component removal and the unnatended section) were unselected (and were previously selected in the preset I used) I then got and error in nlite which forced it to close...

OK, cool, so I just need to swap username and full name for added users? It didn't do this on the administrator account, that worked.

Yeah, I've noticed that too. Even on a fresh, unmodified source, sometimes the options to disable SFC and enable IIS are disabled. It seems specifically like the option for turning off Windows SFC seem to enable and disable itself randomly. Every time I make a change to the build, I always have to go through and recheck about 10 items that have unchecked themselves. So,i guess they're not being saved in (or loaded from) the config.

Also, on the SFC option. To me, the wording is kind of unclear as to which option (Enable or Disable) actually disables SFC. For example, does choosing 'Enable' Enable SFC, or Enable the Disable SFC option, or vice versa? Anyone know? :)

Gonna rebuild and try users with username, full name and description all set to the same, and see what happens...

That's strange. My DHCP was working fine since the first boot.

And I bet they correspond to features introduced with SP2. :whistle:

Also regarding the sp2 settings (which I suspected was the case...) is any "right way" to replicate the settings in a new build in which sp2 and several other packs were integrated in order to remove something else (I'm testing what causes the authentication tab disapearance on the LAN properties)? Should I just integrate everything and then use that folder as a starting point for a new build (doing only removals and tweak to it)?

Hmm. nope. Still nothing.

For whatever reason, only the Administrator and Guest accounts are being created. I've tried everything I can think of now, like, changing the guest account to an Admin account and renaming it, editing the nLite config manually to put my users ahead of Guest, etc.. No matter what I do, with RC2, those user accounts don't create. In the previous version, they did, although the passwords didn't make it, so they had to be added manually.

Anyone know how to fix this? This is driving me nuts. I know I can do user creation via command line, but I'd rather not if I can help it, as it forces me to login as Admin, then reboot to setup everything under the main account.
