  1. Windows 7

    I found your site 12 months ago still getting my head around these unattended installs all tho of late i haven't mucked one up so i must be learning. Anyway its come to my attention (was actually google'n internet explorer 7) but i found a site that is all Windows 7 <-- that site. After reading i a few articles i have some questions, will we be able to use do the unattended install with windows 7 ? will we need to damm format as often as xp and vista ? how is / when should i move to Windows 7 ? Is anyone using windows 7 and if so what are your thoughts, its seems it has the same hype as vista and well after all the bad things i heard about vista i never upgraded from xp, just used you site to learn how to tweak the hell out of it hehe. hehe lots of questions so keep this as a general discussion, dont have to answer all all tho would be helpful. Would love feedback in general as i said i skipped vista and this time around i think i should keep up with the crowd.
  2. mate think you will have to re build.. stop wasting cd's / dvd's download virtualbox (google it) and you can install on virtual machine... and test before you copy.. just run it from iso format rather than burn each time you change something excellent little app i am testing away here my self.. wasted a few dvd's at first but was put on thi program..
  3. Slipstreaming headache

    " arabic as the language instead of English " If you mean "after its done its thing" as in completed it... during the install one of the tabs as you put you code in the is a language option, or you have even removed this as you have slimmed down your windows .. i think maybe start from the beginning and dont load any presets and just take your time with it
  4. Slipstreaming headache

    as above.. this is what i have done.. - extracted files from the exe. (nvidia_forceware******.exe) into a folder i created in my (Win_XP source folder) d:\custom_win\drivers\display\(files were extracted here) d:\custom_win\drivers\chipset\ d:\custom_win\drivers\lan\ d:\custom_win\drivers\sound\ d:\custom_win\drivers\misc\ and when setting up in nlite ive found that using multi folder instead of just pointing a one .ini works for me note: add chipset drivers first. hope that helped
  5. Driver for GeForce 8600M GT (XP)

    your card is supported by general forceware software.. this is a link to the latest drivers http://downloads.guru3d.com/ForceWare-174.53-XP-(32-bit-)-download-1884.html Please note: 8600 GT is a weak card ... it is good for moves & general use, but gaming it wont be great.. my budget had me buy one of these cards and as it was using (512mb)ddr2 i thought same as you regarding performance, so i returned it and paid the extra $40 for less ram (256mb) but of quality DDR3 and now i can game and the card aint half bad for what i need it for. just check your card if its using ddr2 ram that will be why your card lacking perforance
  6. Batch file(maybe) ?

    Noob here again.. ok after playing around withe nlite all is working great, altho once install and and lots of apps the desktop is then cluttered with shortcuts, i dont mind moving manually if i have to but while i have some spare time to work on this lil project id like to be able to have a batch / script / any method that works do this for me... here's a screen shot of my current desktop, i have made 3 menus on the taskbar.. appz,gamez & media playerz... how would i go about having the menus created during the windows install or after or even runonce(i dont really understand runonce yet) do this and send the shortcuts from the desktop into their appropriate taskbar folders.. they are currently reading from folders inside my "My Documents" folder.. really enjoying learning this stuff, so i little example will push me in the right direction and i can take it from there.. so if someone could take some time to help me do this id really appreciate this.. even point me in the right direction of some example code of a batch file would help me heaps ok thanks guys...
  7. Installation DVD not working as expected (dr-dos?)

    "quick responses" No problem i am new here myself and others have been very quick to help me, so i thought i would try and help, like i said im new so that may not be correct, you may have to wait for a more experienced user to inform you
  8. my nlite exp (first attempt)

    "PLEASE NO KISSING!!! lol" we skipped that part B) straight to the fun parts yeah yeah ima all lovey dovey now but only cause its working, not much i tamper with works lol, i do try tho, and for someone to offer a reasonable explanation, that is reason for joy... now i just need help getting my current .exe theme into a .theme file so i can import via nlite thanks guys
  9. Turns out XP SP3 (5503) is real

    OI alot to be GAINED !!! read my "im a noob thread" above this... it helped me from pulling my hair out !! not sure why it jumped up so much in numbers... 33** to 5503 but i can justify that as my HD onboard Audio is now working fine and wasn't with older releases !!! realtek HD 1.89 just released and running fine on 5503
  10. Installation DVD not working as expected (dr-dos?)

    Its sounds like either as above "booting from another source" or it looks like you have used a 3rd party app to create your iso "maybe nero" and have ticked make bootable ... nlite will create the .ISO for you save to your desktop.. and open with poweriso and click burn.. i think "dr-dos" is a addon with nero for creating bootable disks.. anyway good luck and keep us posted
  11. my nlite exp (first attempt)

    "but for the life of me I can't understand why you couldn't install the other drivers" that was an error on my behalf, i was pointing to a single inf, when i need to select the multi-file (folder).. and as for the service pack, there was no support for HD audio in the older sp3 service packs.. but thanks everyone for you input, this is a great tool, i really wish i had found a long time ago, i was selling custom built pc's at once stage and customers always calling me up saying this & that wasn't working or something was wrong, but on soo many occasions they had been "testing out" apps they had no idea how to use and so on... well for now i have no reason to move to vista, so this tool will still come in very handy. I do have another question tho... (tell me if i should make a new thread about it) but my question is: I have found a really nice basic (vista style theme) in .EXE format can i somehow add this to my custom_windows dvd ?? via nlite ?? i have seen the theme section in nlite but seems it asks for a .theme extension..
  12. complete nlite beginner

    "virtualbox is perfect for testing like this " too right it is... Awesome freeware app to test... saves alot of time too thats going to help me alot to tweak my custom disk
