  1. yeah i know about that one, it's written in the unattended guide. but as i said i don't want to be typing out 100s of urls, besides, i've grouped my urls according item and subject.
  2. That's not what i was asking. i want to know if i can use cleanup.bat (which i use as to delete temp installation directories and remove icons from the desktop) to run an SFX'd winrar file.
  3. OK this is what i would like to do and why: i would like to be able to import all my "Favorites" boomarks/internet links to a fresh install of XP. i've used winrar to make a self extracting file that would automatically and silently import all my bookmarks to where my favorites is located. i've tested it and it works. however, i've learned that the User profile isn't created during runoneceex but after. so will i be able to "hijack" the cleanup.bat which i use to delete temp directories and icons to run this rar file assuming it's come after runonenceex?
  4. Ok, so my problem is thus: time was when you downloaded the latest nVidia graphics driver from their site all you needed to do was uncompress it and move the contents to your UaDVD in the drivers folder and everything would work upon installation. well nvidia have changed that with their recent drivers. now when you uncompress the file you get several folders; "Display.Driver", "DisplayControl Panel", "HDAudio", "NVI2", "NView" and "PhysX". i'm guessing i need to combine "Display.Driver" and "DisplayControl Panel" folders to achieve the same end result as in the past. can anyone verify this?
  5. I've recently installed a fresh UaDVD version of my XPSP3 onto a 1TB drive and for some reason i cannot right-click on the bottom taskbar/Start button to go into its properties or close folders that have been opened. does anyone know what the registry entry is for diabling the right-click on the taskbar/Start button? i can copy the list of my reg tweaks if requested.
  6. i'm not sure if this is where it should be posted but here goes: i've spend a long time rebuilding my UaDVD for XP SP3 and i've run it flawlessly in Virtual Box. however when it came time to install it on a 1TB SATA drive i had the following come up: "Setup was unable to format the partition. The disk may be damaged. Make sure the drive is switched on and properly connected to your computer. If the disk is a SCSI disk, make sure your SCSI devices are properly terminated. Consult your computer or SCSI adapter documentation for more information. You will have to select a different partition for Windows NT. Press ENTER to continue." i've googled this and there doesn't seem to be one defining answer. i've taken out one RAM stick. I've swapped drives and checked those drives in another installation of XP which formats and recognises them, my BIOS (mobo Asus P5N32-E SLI) also recognises the disks no problem. the only thing i haven't done is check the actual DVD, although that installation of XP say it's not a recognised Win32 application but all the files are there and it is bootable. could a bad copy of the media be the fault? EDIT/UPDATE: i've found out that it was indeed the DVD that was faulty.
  7. if $Docs ans $Progs are Documents and Settings and Program Files respectively. what is the location for the Favourites folder? Or to run it from RunOnceEx? Update: I've just finished making an SFX of my bookmarks and pleased to say it works. i set the SFX to silent, with an absolute path to my Favorites folder.
  8. thanks, that could be a solution. i just don't want to manually add the urls by typing 100s of bookmarks
  9. hello. this is what i've managed to do so far: i can integrate my favorites bookmarks into a redist of IE8 using the IEAK8 software. however after it's done its thing i don't know where the links to the favorites are in the new IE8 installer (this becomes important later). independent of this i've successfully integrated IE8 into an unattended version of XPSP3 (i tested it out). it was one of the special addon files that one forum member has made and NOT the MS installer which doesn't integrate. it's called "ProgramAddons Internet Explorer 8.0" now, my thinking is that i could substitute the IE8.exe package in "ProgramAddons Internet Explorer 8.0" for the one with the integrated favorites. however it's not that straightforward. so my question is, can i import all my bookmarks (which number close to 100) into an integrated version of IE8 or is there another place apart from the winnt.sif file where you have to type each link individually?
  10. i've been using Virtual Box to test out my ISOs and i'm glad that i did as i keep finding little errors that i can iron out. however the problem is that i need to run the installation of windows (XP)everytime to make note of any errors in the RunOnceEx part of set-up. ideally i need just the RunOnce part on a separate cd/ISO image to run. how do i do this?
  11. thank you for that information. much appreciated
  12. hey Yzowl, off topic, you joined one day after me!
  13. thank you for this. you said IE OL and WMP are handled differently, these are the ones i wanted to remove, lol. anyway, thanks for confirming what's the difference between DEL and del commands?
  14. i'd like to know what the path is (if any) to the programs section in the start menu of XP Pro (32bit). i've used this command with no luck. DEL "%allusersprofile%\start menu\programs\shortcut.lnk" i've also tried different variations of this. anyone have any ideas?
