  1. Thanks for the code... Just an update, i deleted the previous UA and started from fresh, all went well until i wanted to pack, 1st it failed saying there was an image already mounted.... had to go into registry to remove wimmount entry then it let me pack, took 60 mins total and said so in the dos window but when i looked at the Se7en_UA report it said just over 4 mins? Anyway just going to try and install without making any changes to the xml file
  2. I see what you are saying but the xml does seem to be processed, it skip eula and language etc but quits later, i will try to use your xml and use notepad to change it to x86 and run a test with that
  3. 1. I must have got something wrong with iso creation... the first time i tried it i could have sworn it wanted to burn directly to dvd... 2. I will try the whole process again, i had not rebooted and i think i was running vmware and a whole bunch of things at the time, i am running a intel core 2 duo 1.6 with 2.5gb ram and win 7 ultimate, usually goes pretty well so maybe i should do less when packing... 3. I used your sample and changed some names and link to oemlogo, removed prod key but left prod key fields, removed image/name so it prompts for version install 4. I'll experiment with option here... thanks The usb does get picked up and autounattend is being processed during install but gets hung up. AutoUnattend.xml AutoUnattend.xml
  4. Firstly let me say thanks for the tool..! I have figured out all the options and created, packed (took 80mins using 6.21) Used poweriso to create an iso, removing the autounattend.xml before doing so and then tested the iso install using VMware V7. Now the install goes well, however when i attached a USB flash drive and attempt to install using the autounattend.xml it stalls after 1st reboot at the completing install phase, looks to be about 70% done. My question is what in the autounattend.xml sample that Max provided, would stall the install... cos i'm stuck.. ? Another question, icreated a multiinstall XP install based on the unattended sif file leaving out computer, Prod key and user name so that they could be added during install to personalise the install (repair shop) can the autounnattend be used to do the same thing or must the fields be filled in otherwise the xml answer file fails.. ?
  5. I personally through experience would never use Raid of any type on a OS drive, get yourself a fast SATA drive and ghost to another. Along with regular backups and updating the ghost when changes in the OS occur is by far the fastest way to recover from drive failure. Raid sucks..!!!!!
  6. Best way is to use a winnt.sif file either in the i386 folder on the CD or on a floppy and place this entry under components [Components] msmsgs=off that stops it being installed
  7. Thanks, I use Corporate, Home and Pro OEM and Home and Pro Retail on 1 DVD otherwise 1CD of OEM and retail each. I'll let you know how things go as i try them on new installs.. Good Job...!!!!
  8. I have read most of the posts relating to Pre-Activation but i wanted to get something straight as i'm not clear on it.... i create multiboot cd's of OEM home + Pro and Retail Home and Pro and also a DVD. I use the integrator and powerpacker linked with batch scripts with some extra copy/remove commands, the whole process creates the Cd's and DVD as iso's and takes all day... My question is whether the addons will work in a multiboot environ' (OEM Only) and are all the oembios files required thereby adding 100mb to the cd (doesn't matter about the DVD, plenty of room)
  9. Siginet, I've been too busy and away from the forum for awhile and noticed the updates and this very useful tool as I, like you, reinstall hundreds of Dell, HP, Compaq etc etc machines and hate that **** phone call.... anyway i went to your site via this link and saw a list but they all just download Dell, was that intentional... ?
  10. Your Welcome, let me know what you think. I'm interested to know if other knowledgable users thinks it's as good as i do... I seem to be finding more features and uses for profiles and group backup etc.
  11. Gouki, if you want free you can still go to Syncback website, they also a have a very powerful free version that will do what you want too. I am not associated with this program or it's writers but i do use it and find it extremely powerful and useful for the $35CAD it costs..... or use the less powerful (than the SE version) features of the free version. I have been amazed at what this program offers and it's compatible with XP, Server 2003 and older Win9X P.S if you use neros InCd i would read the FAQ at 2brightsparks and use the suggested free software instead.
  12. Have a look at SyncbackSE
  13. This trojan is a real bugger, it is very difficult to get rid of you should go to this site and download smitrem it is very good at removing this type of infection.
  14. I don't want to burst your bubble but a good version of this has already been done.... Logo Stamper, free too...
  15.
