About VATERNL

  1. Thx for the clever update IcemanND...I never thought of that option. ( I assume I am still too much focused on the very simple *.cmd approach ). I like the part where we do not have to maintain an install-repository. Saves me some space;) Will let you know how this works out.
  2. Thank you for the provided solutions. However: In my environment I want to control which updates are installed without making use of WSUS. Slipstreaming into the image is fine, but does not help me to maintain running machines. I am looking for information on how to install a set of tested windows 2008 updates. In the past that was easy -> see script bit. Although the script of IcemanND is very cool, it is not 100% what I need. I assume I only need to know what kind of switches I can use to silently install windows 2008 *.cab files. ( or whatever method I can use ).
  3. I am currently struggling to find information on how to install Windows 7 Update *.cab files. In the past I used the below pasted simple script to install Windows XP \ 2003 Hotfix collections that were not yet integrated in the base-image. Can anyone enlighten me with a working solution ? dir "\\windows_xp\updates\windowsxp_x86\*" /b > %temp%\windowsxp_x86_glb.log for /f "tokens=*" %%a in (%temp%\windows7_x64_glb.log) do "\\windows_xp\updates\windowsxp_x86\%%a" /quiet /norestart
  4. Hi, yesterday I took a closer look to WPI - I love it. Question: It is possible to change the default text "Windows Post-Install Wizard" on the main sceen?
  5. Problem description: I am currently working on a fresh Autounattend.xml for the new Windows Server 2008 x64 R2 release. At first I used an existing template I used for Windows Server 2008. Unfortunately Microsoft changed a few thing and I had to start with a fresh *.xml. Initially I had an issue with the registration key which was solved by moving the key to pass 4. Now I am running into another one and I don't see where I am going wrong. Details: During installation a popup comes which states that there is an error in "Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup". I checked it and could not find what was wrong. It would be cool if someone could have a look and tell mhere I am going wrong.

  6. Thank you for your detailed reply Kelsenellenelvian. I will try this and let you know how things work out. Cheers!!!
  7. Does anyone know where I can modify the following in the WPI framework? On the main screen you can make a selection of the apps \ stuff you want to install or execute. Like this: Select Defaults Select All Select None I would like to specify the selections a bit different, like: Select Dad's Select Mom's Select all Select none Can someone help me \ hint me? Note: I use WPI 7.5 on Windows XP and 7
  8. I am currently working on my fist Autounattend.xml and constantly have this issue where deployment crashes \ does not come up after the first reboot. I checked my Autounattend.xml but could not find the real cause. Can someone please have a look at the attached Autounattend.xml ??

  9. I will check if the mentioned fix also works for me. Thx for sharing this info !
  10. Thats exactly what I meant;) This little mishap is not a showstopper for me, but I like my stuff to work as intended. (I have bigger issues getting around the new security model and the default registry tweaks I want to apply for each user). Anyway, Thx for your attention..it's really appreciated! I will let you know what the outcome of my rebuild will be.
  11. Youre quick;) I am using a normal installation dvd which is "owned" by the company I work for. - No OEM - Ultimate Edition. The Files have been copied to a fileshare, no VLite used as I want to have full overview what is being done to the image. I think i will need to re-copy all the files from the DVD and rebuild the test installation and see if there has indeed something odd crawled into my build:(
  12. I modified the *.XML as adviced, but somehow I still don't get the nice installation overview screen that ticks off when an application is installed \ being installed. Below you will find the adjusted *.XML I used. Can someone please check where I go wrong?

  13. Thx Martin, I will give it a try. Your suggested fix is actually something I knew but I constantly overlooked that one when I started troubleshooting
  14. I created an unattended Vista DVD where I also automated the application installation as described on Firegeier's Guide. Everything works fine, but where I used to see a nice overview screen of to-be-installed applications, I now get ugly CMD screens and intallation progress bars. I can't see what is wrong here. I checked my XML for errors, differences but had no luck. Anyone sees \ knows where I go wrong? Below you will find the XML I use for my unattended install Thx in advance!!!!! <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend"> <settings pass="windowsPE">

  15. Thx all.... FireGeier's hint to use ximage did the trick;) Finished my Unattended image now including the changes I could not figure out how to add them;)
