  1. Thanks a lot, this did the trick for me! It seems it only integrates msu updates, but that is fine, I only have 4 updates that can't be integrated, msi, cab, and exe. They're all MS updates though.
  2. Anyone any idea what is breaking the Media Center? When I start Media Center I get some disk activity then it stops and nothing ever loads. No errors in event log, no popups, nothing at all. Anyone has any idea what might break Media Center? I kept all dependancies vLite wants to keep for Media Center and Media Player, I've tried runnign eshell.exe from the command prompt, which also gives no errors. No services have been disabled or edited from the default. When I use this preset with Vista it works fine. Media Center must have some extra dependancies... mcrb.ini
  3. @Jeronimo I've been playing around with your batchs file and preset, but I want to keep Media Centre, when I leave it in it won't start, no errors or anything. What would I need to keep to make sure Media Centre works? Thanks for the preset/batch files btw, it all works perfectly for me, apart from Media Centre, I have no clue whats causing it to stop working.
  4. I noticed when using Jeronimo's preset that browsing via explorer opens a new window for every folder. Also what do I need to keep Media Centre working? I need it for my DVB-T stuff.
  5. Ok, cheers for the info, will give it another go and also change the edition. Another quick question though, vLite complains about dependencies not being met and I can cancel or press ok to enable the dependency, I can safely ignore these right? Edit 1: I can report it is working now, changing both values did the trick. Thanks. Edit 2: At the end of installing I got an error about WINIPSEC.DLL not being present. I will try to add it to the keep list in vLite and see if that fixes it. Edit 3: Adding the WINIPSEC.DLL to the keep list worked and the install went fine, but after entering my user name and password I get a popup related internet explorer saying it can't find IESSETUP.DLL (with double s yes). After clicking ok the desktop loads fine, after a reboot the error doesn't come back.
  6. No. I just used the preset, no editing, nothing at all. It is weird isn't it? If I try one of the other presets from this thread it works fine, and I get no popups. I hope there will be a vLite 1.3 or a 7lite soon
  7. Unattended is unchecked in both vLite runs, and no serials are entered anywhere. I've only run the preset form the post, nothing else. Edit: Maybe I was unclear, the popup with the error appears on its own, I have no chance to do anything in the setup yet as the popup will come back as soon as I click ok.
  8. Care to share your ini?
  9. I've followed your guide and got an error about the product key. I've run all steps 3 times now, and it keeps giving the same error. Setup will loop if i pressd ok there. Maybe I do something wrong: - Run removal.bat - Run removal.bat packages in the newly opened window - Run vLite with the preset form your post - Run cleanup (edited II to 1 because I rebuild it to 1 (Home Premium)) - Run vLite dummy, creating the ISO I don't integrate any language packs. Any ideas?
  10. Nothing, I've tried it with both Standard and Web, both installations are big tho and in a weird way Web is bigger in my ghost backups of right after conversion. By a few hunderd mb that is. They both use about the same amount of memory, it uses about 20-25% after conversion of my 3GB, vista does 25-30% with a vLited edition. The hard disk footprint is whats stopping me from using this on my laptop because space is not something I have plenty of on it. I got 16GB partition for the OS and that is all it will get. I'm left with about 7GB free space after installing Web/Standard vs. 11GB with vLited Vista. If only vLite would support Windows 2008 in a way we can remove things but after install still can add/remove features, with desktop experience and wireleen networking it is not fun.
  11. I've tried it a few times and sometimes it doesn't work properly resulting in a login/loop. Best use the PDF guide form the same site and do yourself what the program would do, its not that much work.
  12. The WIM filter from the WAIK is removed. Which should be fine to redistebute for private persons as it is a part of a freely downloadable but rather bulky piece of software. This is very helpful for people on slower connections, I once found myself in a similar situation when I needed imagex and had to download the whole WAIK for it. Step-by-step below for those who like step-by-steps. 1: Install vLite 1.2beta or newer. 2: Download: removed 3: Unpack the archive into \Program Files\vLite\. 4: Start vLite and click "install WIM" filters. Fin.
  13. Ofcourse I ran the file as administrator, also after the reboot when Windows find all the new hardware I got a lot of "Error in inf file" so in the device manager there is a long list of "Unknown devices" never the less watching TV is possible.
  14. Reporting success on my DVB-T USB stick; Geniatech t328b. Very nicely done, good bat files, tho I got an access denied somewhere whilst copying the files, everything works just fine. No complaints
  15. Go here: The edition with the least features and yet still retaining everything you want would be the best choice for you. Maybe the Web edition is still slimmer, it sure has a lot less features. There is also another page to compare server roles here:
