I think this used to happen with XP.

WINNTBBA.DLL and WINNTBBU.DLL from I386 were the 2 files that would contain the strings & resources, that were used from setup.exe & boot-setup respectively? Just thought this piece of info might help to find a solution.

@AMIT

u need to edit those files in boot.wim

boot.wim contains 2 images

1st is tha bootable WinPe image and 2nd contains the same as tha dvd contains (except boot.wim & install.wim ) {i think so}

so u wanna change that fins the required files in those wim images

thnx @innocent_devil ...yes..i looked into boot.wim, and replaced all files with mine edited one. it worked now !!! :thumbup . and yes you are right...boot.wim contains 2 images as u told.

btw. one thing i noticed...tht if u wanna install Vista by booting dvd only..thn u can remove files in "resources" folder of vista which are already in boot.wim...caz vista uses only boot.wim files while booting dvd ( i have tested this )

similarly if u want to install vista using setup.exe file, u can remove similar files from boot.wim and can reduce size of it.

r u getting me wht i want to say? :}

boot.wim is an image file you would simply mount it with imagex.exe which comes with the waik tools for managing images etc.

imagex /mountrw D:\Unattended\Vista\Vista2\sources\boot.wim 1 D:\Unattended\Vista\Mount

imagex /unmount /commit D:\Unattended\Vista\Mount

Paste these two lines of code into seperate text files & name it what you wish with a .cmd ext. change the paths as you see fit.

Cool, I'll try that out.

Right when I finish downloading WAIK.

I really appreciate your help.

Thank you! :D
