  1. It Looks like you have got round this problem but for reference this error cropped up on an xp hotfix update I created today with the last 3 updates/hotfixes before you install MP11 and IE7. These were: 1) KB885836 - Wordpad hotfix 2) KB936782 - MP (NOT 11) swf hotfix 3) KB939653 - IE6/7 hotfix ref: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/939653 and http://support.microsoft.com/kb/897225/ link 2 is an interesting one as it goes on to explain hotfix install order and so forth. It looks like KB939653 is the cause of the error as I have a slipstreamed disk with sp2 and all updates up untill these three were Slipped (but without IE7 and MP11 slipped) and it was flawless. Looks like I`ve just solved my S/S error! YAY maybe this helps regards
  2. I won`t use inline comments again ok. [HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-1454471165-1343024091-725345543-500\ 1) I am under the impression that I cannot use the HKU key quoted above as windows won`t recognise it - it is a unique key created when windows was installed and will not be present on the target installation. 2) I have to somehow get the settings for the regfile to install to the equivelent HKU ID key for the target installation Am I correct? anyone got any ideas on this?
  3. I used regshot to find the keys for the set cookies to prompt setting and it came up with this: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Cryptography\RNG] "Seed"=hex(3):55,EB,2F,B8,0E,3C,B7,49,E5,E0,AD,5F,2A,0A,01,6E,82,CF,B1,B8,ED,36,\ 48,D6,4B,37,A5,68,E5,9E,F5,AD,AD,A9,39,88,F4,5E,9E,D3,18,FF,C4,65,35,20,C4,5B,\ 26,B2,60,6B,12,A9,54,88,5D,9B,ED,A8,59,23,31,B6,CB,6E,E6,E9,78,D9,95,05,30,7E,\ EB,61,17,13,D0,8D [HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-1454471165-1343024091-725345543-500\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings] "PrivacyAdvanced"=dword:00000001 [HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-1454471165-1343024091-725345543-500\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Connections] "SavedLegacySettings"=hex(3):46,00,00,00,06,01,00,00,01,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,\ 00,00,00,00,00,00,00,04,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,90,EC,96,68,E6,74,C7,01,01,00,00,\ 00,AC,10,01,05,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00 [HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-1454471165-1343024091-725345543-500\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\3] "{AEBA21FA-782A-4A90-978D-B72164C80120}"=hex(3):1A,37,61,59,23,52,35,0C,7A,5F,20,\ 17,2F,1E,1A,19,0E,2B,01,73,13,37,13,12,14,1A,15,3B "{A8A88C49-5EB2-4990-A1A2-0876022C854F}"=hex(3):1A,37,61,59,23,52,35,0C,7A,5F,20,\ 17,2F,1E,1A,19,0E,2B,01,73,13,37,13,12,14,1A,15,3B I cannot use this because it has listed the HKU key , which is obviously for my profile, I don`t think I can just strip this key out and use it so how can I set the cookies to prompt in a reg file and run it at t-12?
  4. you can do this by setting AutoPartition=0 in your sif file setup will ask you which partition to install on and let you choose using the cursor keys. It will also give you the option to delete the partition and create a new one it won`t resize or move boundries, just delete the partition and recreate it You can create more than 1 partition in the unused space if you want then format it, ntfs or fat32 (quick format for both fs`s if u want) and install os this should solve your problem I do this all the time with my test cd`s it is a godsend have fun partitioning!
  5. I have just put a virgin copy of xp on one of my test machines and the same problem ocurs. btw, sfc came up clear on the previuos os check If I d/c the individual files they import ok but if I d/c the large file (all tweaks in one file) it comes up with "error accessing the registry. Since this file imports fine on the Compaq machine it cannot be to big although I only have sp2 on the test macine and no other updates at the moment. I am at a loss at the mo, will have to do sum diggin again
  6. it works ok on my compaq 2.4g machine! But not on the 1.5g pcchips machine - I have a corrupt file somewhere! on the installation - time for sfc I think!
  7. I Have a feeling that the reg file is too big. Maybe I should seperate it into it`s respective hives, then import - it what do you guys think? I Will try it anyway and see what gives YAY this is fun!
  8. I was wrong! it hasn`t worked, but I get no errors! The registry tweaks I setup from within nlite have worked The registry tweaks I set up from the $OEM$ folder have not, but I get no Errors from this routine T-12 what is going on here??? are the regentries being reset somewhere along the way from t-12?

Ah well you live and learn A few notes from my steep learning curve: 1 oempreinstall=yes in my sif file As Betamax stated I can use this line without the start.cmd file - nice and clean - too many files all over the place makes for a confusing and messy disk! Thank you betamax have a housepoint - you`re a gent 2 According to This link: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/141377, regedit32.exe for windows XP and winserver 2k3 quote: "In Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, Regedt32.exe is a small program that just runs Regedit.exe." The Article also points out the differences between regedit.exe and regedit32.exe for different versions of windows -and there are a few! Just run regedt32.exe on windows 2000 and WOW! - is this windows 3.1! (sysedit!) YAY cheers guys
  10. The command I entered in my cmdlines text file: [COMMANDS] "Regedit /s regtweaks.reg" is correct. The /s switch automatically accepts the prompt to click ok in the dialog box which pops up when you double click the file, and the regtweaks.reg reference is the name of the file I want to run. It is the start.cmd element of this line: %systemdrive%\OEM \start.cmd. that is baffling me. I am under the impression it is something to do with running the cmdlines.txt file from a command prompt automatically, but how do I fashion it? Something like this maybe? @echo off title Integrating registry tweaks echo echo Integrating registry tweaks... start cmdlines.txt /wait echo echo Done exit so I put this in a file and name it start.cmd?
  11. here is my cmdlines.txt file: [COMMANDS] "Regedit /s regtweaks.reg" oempreinstall=yes in my sif file both the files are in my oem folder but what is this that I have been told I need in my sif file: %systemdrive%\OEM \start.cmd. What is this start.cmd??? what does it do and how do I configure it. I am Totaly confused by this start.cmd reference Will sum1 pls educate me on the matter?
