  1. I have a unattend floppy for a GX270 with IDE harddrive and trying to use it on a GX280 with sata hd. Does anyone have the needed settings to get the floppy to work with a GX280 with sata drive(s)?
  2. Xp system disk/motherboard swap

    I receive a Stop 0x0000007B error after I move the Windows XP system disk to another computer or swap the motherboard to a different type. I have read many of the articles about doing a system repair or a inplace upgrade/repair.... I was wondering is there another way by installing the needed drivers on my system disk. I have a program that I can run and access the entire disk and registry thats on the disk but I don't know how or where to install the needed drivers on the disk. This would allow the system disk to boot correctly without having to reinstall all the patches and such.
  3. let's create an sticky "repository" to post sysprep.inf files to benifit the others. This will also allow authors to show off their hard work and explaination on how they work
  4. sysprep -reseal

    you know I used the setupmgr and it did not create them for me hum
  5. sysprep -reseal

    @Peachy Thanks it worked very fine! in the unattend script : NoWaitAfterTextMode = 1 NoWaitAfterGUIMode = 1 where did you find these I cannot find any documentation on these entries?
  6. When using the sysprep -reseal , is there anyway to make it unattended? I always get the oobe...having to entering in the product i.d. and such. I would like to run sysprep -reseal and automate the oobe and have a total unattended from imaging to reboot to desktop Any suggestion?
  7. Automated Sysprep

  8. I have been trying to create an hard drive image to load on my other pc. Both pc's are the same made by the same manuf. I am using the oem ( it came with my pc as a quick restore disk) version of windows xp pro. I'm using sysprep and creating an sysprep.inf file and putting it into my sysprep dir. I'm trying to get to an fully automatic reboot after running the sysprep.exe file here is the contents: ;SetupMgrTag [unattended] OemSkipEula=Yes InstallFilesPath=C:\sysprep\i386 [GuiUnattended] AdminPassword=* EncryptedAdminPassword=NO OEMSkipRegional=1 TimeZone=20 OemSkipWelcome=1 [userData] ProductKey=xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx omittied FullName="GX1" OrgName="" ComputerName=GX1 [Display] BitsPerPel=32 Xresolution=800 YResolution=600 Vrefresh=85 [TapiLocation] CountryCode=1 Dialing=Tone AreaCode=901 [setupMgr] DistFolder=C:\sysprep\i386 DistShare=windist [identification] JoinWorkgroup=WORKGROUP [sysprep] BuildMassStorageSection = Yes [sysprepMassStorage] [Networking] InstallDefaultComponents=Yes Everything works after running the sysprep.exe, except that after rebooting I get the miniset up. I do not want to get the minisetup I want the fullyautomatied version. where it goes directly to the Welcome screen. I have to enter the pc name, comp. name, product I.d. , user name etc. If you look at my sysprep.inf file all this is already included. Can anyone give me some insight as to why this is happening? Is it because I'm using the oem version of the winxp? ???????
  9. Hey I have been a tech at both Best Buy and CompUSA and we could in the past take an harddrive from one machine ( Brand ) and replace it in another ( brand) but now HP has come up with a bios identifier that when the factory harddrive boots it searches the bios's dmi and id's it then starts the boot sequence. If you move the hd to another brand pc, the pc will start to boot and all you will see is a blinking underscore in the top left of your monitor and stall. I was wondering is there a way to reprogram the bios indentifier? If you don't understand what Im talking about look at this web site. www.softthinks.com then look under the section intitled: Bios Lock & SLP / WPA I think all mfg. are starting to use something like this so in order to swap hd's from one pc to another the bios identifier will have to changed or is there another method? CAN THIS BE DONE ???? ANYONE
