  1. noobs.....thanks, I didn't notice that....nothing like cut and paste mistakes.
  2. bump Sorry, just trying to resolve this last issue as I can't seem to find the problem. I can do complete installs without any issues now (not sure about the hotfixes), except that I can't seem to get any programs to install. It seems to just skip over the program install even though the install message pops up and looks like it's going to work. I only tried one app and reg tweak to keep it simple. Edit: I tried again with another program, but didn't install either. They are in the C:\Install\Applications folder after the OS is installed, so at least that's working right. Should they be extracted first? cmdow @ /HID @echo off SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Installing Applications" /f REG ADD %KEY%\001 /VE /D "Preparing Installation..." /f REG ADD %KEY%\001 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\prepare.cmd" /f REG ADD %KEY%\005 /VE /D "ZoneAlarm" /f REG ADD %KEY%\005 /V 1 /D %systemdrive%\install\Applications\ZoneAlarm\zlssetup_45_594_000.exe /s /noreboot /f REG ADD %KEY%\050 /VE /D "Importing Registry Tweaks" /f REG ADD %KEY%\050 /V 1 /D "REGEDIT /S %systemdrive%\install\!SafeProAllstart.reg" /f REG ADD %KEY%\055 /VE /D "Cleaning Up and Rebooting" /f REG ADD %KEY%\055 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\cleanup.cmd" /f EXIT

  4. Which would be best for use with XPC and how is it integrated into it? Examples? There are certain applications I'd like to run silent during install, and in the case of Adobe 6 reader, it won't install at T13 (says XP must complete first). Please be patient, noob behind wheel, but making progress.
  5. The problem with my issue evidently was I didn't have the directory structure set up properly in the $OEM$ folder. Once I changed it to the attached pic (including the I386 folder not shown), it installed fine. Not all hotfixes installed, at least according to Add/Remove. No big deal, I'm just happy to get this far. Now that it appears the basic install is working, it's time to refine and add. Thanks for the help shareef59, I hope you are willing to be of assistance for a few other questions, I really appreciate it. This is a great utility and saves a lot of time.
  6. Not sure where you are getting the "Line 1 of the INF file". Make sure the WINNT.SIF has the correct file extention. Also, have a look at my WINNT.SIF (attached), it works fine from \FILESCD\I386\ Hope this helps... I used your winnt.sif verbatim. I don't get the Line 1 error, all the hotfixes install, however nothing is being accessed from $OEM$ from what I can tell as no apps are being installed other than what I put in SVC-EXE. It will not run unattended and I still must go through the normal setup routine (entering cd key etc.). Winnt.sif is on the CD in I386 folder after burning is completed. In XPCREATE, I placed winnt.sif in FILESCD\$OEM$\I386 . I also placed it in FILESCD\I386 as you posted, and GM instructed. Neither worked. I must be doing something wrong, and a simple overlook no doubt, but it's getting a bit frustrating to say the least. Once this is figured out, how do I load reg tweaks? Thanks. XPCREATE.LOG
  7. I seem to have a problem getting winnt.sif to work as well. When booting to the XP CD, I get this message: Line 1 of the INF file \i386\winnt.sif is invalid Setup cannot continue. Press any key to exit. Here is the winnt.sif: ;SetupMgrTag [Data] AutoPartition=1 MsDosInitiated="0" UnattendedInstall="Yes" [unattended] UnattendMode=FullUnattended OemSkipEula=Yes OemPreinstall=Yes TargetPath=\WINDOWS UnattendSwitch="yes" DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore [GuiUnattended] AdminPassword=deleted EncryptedAdminPassword=Yes OEMSkipRegional=1 TimeZone=20 OemSkipWelcome=1 [userData] ProductKey=deleted FullName="DK" OrgName="" ComputerName=dk [Display] BitsPerPel=32 Xresolution=800 YResolution=600 Vrefresh=75 [TapiLocation] CountryCode=1 [RegionalSettings] LanguageGroup=1 [identification] JoinWorkgroup=WORKGROUP [Networking] InstallDefaultComponents=Yes
  8. Installing nVidia platform drivers from svc-exe worked, just had those few errors while it was installing. Again I will assume it's something on my end. At this point it's purely a learning curve, so am taking baby steps.
  9. I found the error of my ways, although it seems like it still should have worked. XPCreate.ini instructions: ; Edit the XPCREATE section below to suit your needs. ; ; XPSOURCE is the relative or full path to your Windows Source Files. This may be on a CD, or your HDD. ; BOOTIMGFILE is the relative or full path to your CD Boot Image File. ; XPISO is the full or relative path of the XPCREATE ISO CD Image File to be created. ; CDERASE should be set to YES if you would like to erase your CD-RW before recording. ; CDSPEED is the speed at which you would like to burn your CDs. ; CDBURNER is the drive letter of your CD Burner. [XPCREATE] XPSOURCE=D: BOOTIMGFILE=BOOT\XPCTBOOT.BIN XPISO=XPCREATE.ISO CDERASE=NO CDSPEED=MAX CDBURNER=L: Basically, what Shareef59 posted got me to thinking I should just keep everything in C: and not change the path of BOOTIMGFILE and XPISO to separate folders because they are accessed/created inside the xpcreate folder. Once I did that, all worked well. So, thanks shareef59, you helped me out!! Now, I need to learn how to integrate winnt.sif, reg tweaks, Nvidia drivers, applications etc. to install properly and silently. I placed the nVidia 3.13 unified drivers in SVC-EXE folder and it installed, but I got an error during install; was looking for something in My Documents, a .dll file I think. I ok'd out of it 3 or 4 times and the rest went in fine. So far so good except for that.
  10. I just tried it on a new install on a different pc. It does the exact same thing. There is no iso file saved anywhere. This leads me to believe it is something I am doing wrong. I'm beginning to feel like a real dope.
  11. and you iso to burn to a cd should be here: if the process did finish correctly Regards, N. No, it didn't create the file, that's why it's puzzling. It completes the entire process, says it's creating the files for the cd, very briefly flashes 'burning iso' (or whatever) then quits. I'm sure it's just operator error, but I'd like to get this working
  12. I ran it again, sorry, didn't look in the right folder. XPCREATE.LOG XPCREATE.LOG
  13. I took out the file Q832483 that was in SVC-MDC and it continued beyond that point and everything looked good, but then it just quit at some other point. There is no log, don't know why. I find XPCreate to be a very good utility, but since it's quite different from manually building a cd, it will take me a bit of time to get used to it. I'm stumped at this point. edit: it finishes up to where it's creating files for the CD, then it quits. Here is the amended xpcreate.ini : [XPCREATE] XPSOURCE=G: BOOTIMGFILE=C:\BOOT XPISO=C:\XPCREATE.ISO CDERASE=NO CDSPEED=MAX CDBURNER=F:
  14. It goes until the last line shown below, then stops. Any ideas? I modified the system parameters and double checked, but does the same thing.
