  1. I think starting windows PE before you get to the OS selection dialog takes too long. CDshell on the other hand, can display an OS selection menu in seconds. How do you create a Multi DVD for the windows 7 editions using CDshell?
  2. @MrJinje, thx so much for your reply, i really appreciate it. I don't think i need to be able to "DISM /ADD-PACKAGE". However, i thought about this, maybe it would be better to simply change almost all the User Shell Folders in the registry to point D:\users\%username%. So that will mean that ntuser.dat will remain in C:\users\%username% and My Documents, My pictures, etc. will point to D:\Users\%username%\My Documents, etc. I would like that those registry entries will be set for every newly created user in windows 7. Can you provide me with a working autounattend.xml that will add Current User registry settings to the default user, so that those registry will be valid for every newly created user?
  3. I already have a working autounattend.xml available for Vista, which changes the profilesdirectory from C:\users to D:\users . It does this by setting <ProfilesDirectory>D:\Users</ProfilesDirectory> during the oobeSystem pass. I'm having a hard time to get this to work in windows 7. Apparently the command "sysprep.exe /quiet /audit" to get into audit mode no longer works in windows 7. I've found out that you now have to change the mode from OOBE to Audit in Microsoft-Windows-Deployment\Reseal, but i just don't know where to then put that Windows-Deployment\Reseal. Should it be in audit System or in audit User? Basically what i want is this: 1. Change the profiles directory to D:\users. 2. Add a few registry settings to the default user, so that those registry will be valid for every newly created user. If anyone has a working autounattend.xml that can do that, i would really appreciate it if they would be so kind to post it here.
  4. @maxXPsoft I think he wants to create an unattend.xml without the product key and he does not want to be prompted for the product key. That's what i want aswell. I tried to leave the product key out of the Windows PE pass, but then the installation will simply stop with an error saying that the product key is invalid. Does anyone know how to create an unattended without the product key, that will simply continue without prompting for the product key during the installation? Or are there any generic or universal product keys for vista that one can legally use to startup the unattended installation?
  5. As with a lot of people, the Network location dialog pops up when my unattended installation finishes too. I also tried adding this RunSynchronousCommand to the specialize pass: cmd /c reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList\Signatures\FirstNetwork" /v Category /t REG_DWORD /d 00000000 /f Regrettaby, as with a lot people, that workaround didn't work for me either. I therefore decided to use the wininstall tool to take some snapshots of the registry and found out that the following reg command will prevent the Network location dialog from popping up: Code cmd /c reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList\NewNetworks" /v NetworkList /t REG_MULTI_SZ /d "" /f You can add this as a SynchronousCommand to the oobeSystem pass. I tested this myself and i can confirm that it works. This workaround does have a downside: the Network location type will be set to "Public". I have not found a way to automate changing it to "Home". I would prefer that because the option "Network discovery" would be enabled then. Does anyone know of a command line tool, group policy or registry setting that will enable one to change the Network location?
  6. @Firegeier, your autounattend.xml and the unattend.xml worked like a charm. The only mistake i made was placing my modified unattend.xml in a folder called panther\unattend during the Window PE phase. The advantage of that is that it takes precedence over the autounattend.xml on the dvd. The disadvantage of that was that it also took precedence over the sysprep unattend.xml, making it get into kind of a loop. Adding a runsynchronous command to the audituser phase that deletes the unattend.xml from the panther\unattend folder fixed the problem. Thx firegeier, appreciate the help. Ruud
  7. Martin, i followed your advise and changed the FOR %IN line. Regrettably it gave me the same result. Also i have to say that i was expecting your suggestion not to make any difference, because of the simple fact that i can see that the regimport was succesfull because it was showing a green checkmark at the registry import screen during the installation.

  9. I followed the "Copying the actual user profile over to the profile of default user" guide from Firegeier, but for some unknown reason my current_user regtweaks still do not seem to be applied to the default user profile. Could someone please post a working unattend.xml so i can compare it with my unattend.xml? Ruud
  10. Hello all, does presetup.cmd also exist in vista? Or is there an alternative for presetup.cmd present in Vista? Ruud
  11. Ok, please forget this post, i was under the impression that no drivers where installed for this device, yet there was syntaxerror in the presetup.cmd in the latest RC7 beta-testing-version of the driverpack Base causing no driverpacks to be installed at all. The driver was installed just fine after correcting the error. Ruud

  14. Apparently no driver was available for my Ralink RT2500 Wireless LAN PCCard. I used the latest driverpack wlan v603. The strange thing is that this wlan card does install properly with the older driverpack wlan v507. Please find attached my hardwareid's. Ruud hwids.txt
  15. No driver was available for my HSP56 MR modem in my gericom 2440xl laptop. They are not present in the latest driverpack modem. I would really appreciate if someone could add them. I found the proper OEM drivers for them from Connexant. These drivers support a lot of laptop modems from other manufacturers aswell. You can download them here : http://conexant.com/support/hsp_driverdownload.jsp Directdownload for WinXP : http://conexant.com/support/files/HSP_UniD...are_Win2kXP.zip Please find attached my hardwareid's.
