Win2k Unattend Stuffs


 Share

Recommended Posts

Awhile ago i was making a win2k 4in1 all in one cd, but gave up due to lack of interest. I thought i would share some of my ideas from that project.

1 - Disable automatic updates.

Delete au.in_ and download this file to your i386 folder, download it here.

2 - Disable connection wizard icon

Don't you hate that icon on your desktop from the connection wizard? Well i do. Download this file and save it in your i386 folder. Delete icwnt5.in_.

3 - Customize the default profile.

The way i customized profiles is to modify hifedef.inf. Download mine here . Overwrite your hivedef.inf with mine. To find what i changed, search the file for changed_win2k. I've tested it and it works perfect. It's great for beginners.

Enjoy. All .inf files are for win2k sp4. All .inf files you can get from the free sp4 download.

Wondered if you had a hivedef.inf for xp pro I could take a look at as well?

Numinous has been playing around with this method to change the settings for the default.user but the syntax is a little different than reg files.

Here's my list of changes to win2k and xp. Like i said i abandoned the project, so it's incomplete. But you could just copy and paste my settings to your hivedef.inf. Below is my list of changes.txt:

Hivecls.inf creates Classes in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE.

Hivedef.inf creates HKEY_USER\.DEFAULT and the Ntuser.dat for the default user.

Hivesft.inf creates HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE.

Hivesys.inf creates HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM.

Hiveusd.inf does not create accessible hives.
