  1. Alright, I'm currently having probs with my photoshop right now. Every time I go and try to open it, I get a "system error" from photoshop, not windows and it will not let me get into it...time for a...do I dare say it? *FORMAT* After I format and set everything back up, I will try that. Thank you bored, and thank you everyone for all the time you've spent on this!
  2. DAMNIT Ok, first things first, this is a damned amazing thing. This was definitely the type of customization that I was looking for. I followed your guide and everything is fine....EXCEPT that when I save my file as a 256 color bitmap, the colors get all "pasty." Now, I understand that I'm going from a higher to lower color count and that's why. So my question is to you guys...how the hell are you guys making those nice high-res install pics? I'm using Photoshop 7.0 and just take my files and save it as a 256 color bmp. I've also used the built in windows paint and same thing...What photo editing programs are you guys using and most importantly....I have not downloaded any of your winntbbu files, so I haven't seen if they are really nice looking, but in the screenshots they look very nice, high res, and clean cut. Am I doing something wrong???
  3. Hey medic What's with that program? It'll delete the uninstall folders located in windows directory? Lemme see lemme see
  4. Well, I figured as much It was just weird and kinda bothered me, but knock on wood so far things are going good. I went back and re-wrote the main batch, the hotfixes, and cleanup batch files. The main batch does what it needs to do , then the hotfixes kicks in, and then the cleanup...drivers folder is still there. You're right, it's not something to really fuss over, but I was wondering why exactly the line above it executes and removes the install directory, but not drivers, once again...not a big deal, boohoo. Thx for the reply, I'm currently doing my applications batch file, as I think I may have screwed something up in that one.
  5. Hey man, weird that nobody pointed you to the topic that was pretty big last week. From what I heard, you are wanting to automatically create a user? Look in the autologin topic. There are the specific directions, but here is a recap, from what I can remember (too tired ) create a cmdlines.txt file and place it in your $OEM$ folder. Inside the cmdlines file, copy and paste the following: cmdlines.txt [COMMANDS] ".\user.CMD" Yes, you need the quotes, and the .\ the user portion can be anything you want. Then create a users.cmd file and place it in your $OEM$ folder along with the cmdlines.txt. In your users.cmd file, copy and paste the following: user.cmd CLS @ECHO OFF ECHO. ECHO Creating user: Joe ECHO Please Wait... net user Joe /add net localgroup administrators Joe /add ECHO EXIT This will make a user called "Joe" (without the quotes) and will add him to the Administrators group. You can of course change "Joe" to anything you want. If you have a space in the name, make sure that you DO use quotes. Basically, your cd will copy over your files, create the user Joe, log into that account instead of the default administrator account, then continue to run your batch files. You only need those two files, nothing else, for it will autodetect (if that's the right word ) them and run them. I hope this helps, have a great night
  6. I have a few questions to ask, but first and foremost, bravo on those who found and successfully edited the gui setup pictures. That was something I was going to attempt, but wasn't too sure...now I KNOW I will be doing it, once again, BRAVO and thank you! Ok, I am using virtualpc, and I've ran into a couple problems: 1. The setup creates my user Joe, and logs in. The profile name is Joe, but under documents and settings it's called joe.anthrax (anthrax being the name of the computer) When I go and burn the CD and do the setup on an actual PC, will the name as well as the documents and settings profile be "Joe" without quotes of course. 2. I have the folder $DOCS under the OEM folder. I have it so my favorites get copied into the "Joe" account...refer to problem one. It makes a Joe folder and moves my favorites in there...great, but my Joe account under documents and settings is named joe.anthrax....refer to problem one 3. I had 4 batch files for my setup: main_batch.cmd = Installed .net framework,wmp9, aspi drivers,directx9.0b, and flash player, reg hacks applcations.cmd = Installed about 10 different apps hotfixes.cmd = Installed my hotfixes cracks.cmd = Registered my programs, and copied over hacked .dlls cleanup.cmd = removed things from the desktop, startmenu, deleted unused user accounts, backgrounds, removed install and driver directories. The problem is, after main_batch has finished, it starts the applications, gets about half way, then starts up the hotfixes batch, after hotfixes is done, regardless of applications, cracks, then cleanup batch files are executed. I figured I had one too many batch files, so I merged all, but cleanup. I of course rearranged the newly main_batch.cmd file so it does the main_batch, then applies hotfixes, then the applications, then the cracks. Then my second, cleanup.cmd file would executed. I thought that 2 would work, I of course had to go somewhere, so I let it go. When I got home, about half the apps were installed, none of the hotfixes were installed, and cleanup only removed the install folder, not my drivers folder. So my question is: How many batch files could you run? I mean in order...once main has finished, then start cracks, then start appz, etc etc etc. Also, does it matter how many entries you have in the batch file? I deleted all of the batch files, and re-wrote them, making sure all of the directories matched up and everything looked good. In my winnt.sif file, I only placed the main_batch and cleanup cmd files. I made an ISO and continued to do a virtualpc install...everything worked just fine, EXCEPT that it did not remove my drivers folder, AGAIN. Not a big deal, but it would be nice to do it automatically. It seems to delete my install folder just fine, and I am using the exact same commands, RD blah blah blah...I'll just try drivers first, then put install under it. I am going to re-write my hotfixes.cmd file and then add that to my winnt.sif file, see how that goes, then onto applications, etc etc etc. Once again...longass post, could anyone give me some pointers or tell me what's up?
  7. Well....I have yet to burn my CD and/or try it in vmware workstation 4. I mounted the image, but for some reason it doesn't wanna find it or use the .iso image to install the operating system on workstation, oh well. I figured I need to format BADLY, so I would just come back here and check on what you had to said about the winnt.bat file. Well, thx for the input on that, ALSO, a BIG BIG BIG thank you to quya. That definitely would have put a twist in my panties if I hadn't gotten it right. Make mistakes, learn from them...but damnit, I only have 5 more blank cd's left. Gonna go and get some on Wednesday....I just KNOW that I am gonna NEED 6 cd's before I go out and buy another pack or two....isn't that how it always works...just one more than you have. As for Bachus.... I would have been in a similar situation, had quya not posted that last post. Hope your problem is fixed now
  8. Well, how does this look? winnt.sif ;SetupMgrTag [Data] AutoPartition=1 MsDosInitiated="0" UnattendedInstall="Yes" [Unattended] UnattendMode=FullUnattended OemSkipEula=Yes OemPreinstall=Yes TargetPath=\WINDOWS Repartition=Yes UnattendSwitch="Yes" WaitForReboot="No" FileSystem=ConvertNTFS DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore [B]InstallFilesPath = C:\Install[/B] OemPnPDriversPath="Drivers\Nvidia\Display;Drivers\Nvidia\Ethernet;Drivers\Nvidia\GART;Drivers\Nvidia\Memctrl; Drivers\Nvidia\SMBus;Drivers\Nvidia\USB;Drivers\Nvidia\IDE;Drivers\Modem;Drivers\Sound" [GuiUnattended] AdminPassword=* EncryptedAdminPassword=NO OEMSkipRegional=1 TimeZone=4 OemSkipWelcome=1 [UserData] ProductKey=**** FullName="****" OrgName="" ComputerName=**** [Display] BitsPerPel=32 Xresolution=1024 YResolution=768 Vrefresh=75 [TapiLocation] CountryCode=1 Dialing=Tone AreaCode=760 [Identification] JoinWorkgroup=HOME [Networking] InstallDefaultComponents=No [NetAdapters] Adapter1=params.Adapter1 [params.Adapter1] INFID=* [NetClients] MS_MSClient=params.MS_MSClient [NetServices] MS_SERVER=params.MS_SERVER [NetProtocols] MS_TCPIP=params.MS_TCPIP MS_NWIPX=params.MS_NWIPX [params.MS_TCPIP] DNS=Yes UseDomainNameDevolution=No EnableLMHosts=Yes AdapterSections=params.MS_TCPIP.Adapter1 [params.MS_TCPIP.Adapter1] SpecificTo=Adapter1 DHCP=Yes WINS=No NetBIOSOptions=0 [Components] msnexplr=off zonegames=off [Branding] BrandIEUsingUnattended=Yes [URL] Home_Page=about:blank [GuiRunOnce] %systemdrive%\install\main_batch.cmd %systemdrive%\install\applications.cmd %systemdrive%\install\reg.cmd %systemdrive%\install\hacked_dll.cmd %systemdrive%\install\cleanup.cmd I have the cmdlines.txt file under my install folder. It should be copied to c:\install since I have oempreinstall setup...is this correct? So, the installfilespath should go to my c:\install\cmdlines.txt this file then points to user.cmd which then creates my user account. Is this all correct? TO AARONXP: I was wondering...since I have yet to mount my cd image or even burn it for that matter, when I use the sp1deploy tools, it creates 2 files...the .sif file above, and a winnt.bat. Do I need this batch file? Let's say I have everything setup perfectly and ready to go, the only thing I need to do is copy the winnt.sif file into my i386 folder....nothing involving the winnt.bat file, correct? I read through the tut on this and it didn't say anything about it, just double checking.
  9. See, that's what I was thinking as well I was gonna say remember when it asks you to create a user account...if you only make one account, it hides the administrator account and automatically logins you into that user created account...but duh, gui has already started and if you want it as unattended as possible, unattendedswitch=yes If it creates the user BEFORE the gui starts, it may automatically choose that one. Once i have everything finished tonight (without office....gonna take twice as long, ugh) I will try out my cd with this cmdlines.txt thing and see how it goes. Best of luck to everyone! *edit* I was re-reading your post and I thought about that...he said that you could have your commands in the cmdlines.txt file or point them to a .cmd or .bat file...so, if you had an autologon script, you could have it run it, so essentially, yes it's possible. I was running around looking for reg tweaks and scripts...and I believe I came across an autologon batch file....I will have to go back and look, because I did not pay much attention to it...only one person uses this computer, so one account.
  10. Nevermind, the [commands] section goes into the cmdlines.txt
  11. In my winnt.sif file, I would place the commands section BEFORE guirunonce, correct? How does this look? ;SetupMgrTag [Data] AutoPartition=1 MsDosInitiated="0" UnattendedInstall="Yes" [Unattended] UnattendMode=FullUnattended OemSkipEula=Yes OemPreinstall=Yes TargetPath=\WINDOWS Repartition=Yes UnattendSwitch="Yes" WaitForReboot="No" FileSystem=ConvertNTFS DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore OemPnPDriversPath="Drivers\Nvidia\Display;Drivers\Nvidia\Ethernet;Drivers\Nvidia\GART;Drivers\Nvidia\Memctrl;Drivers\Nvidia\SMBus;Drivers\Nvidia\USB;Drivers\Nvidia\IDE;Drivers\Modem;Drivers\Sound" [GuiUnattended] AdminPassword=* EncryptedAdminPassword=NO OEMSkipRegional=1 TimeZone=4 OemSkipWelcome=1 [UserData] ProductKey=***** FullName="Joe Dickerson" OrgName="" ComputerName=ANTHRAX [Display] BitsPerPel=32 Xresolution=1024 YResolution=768 Vrefresh=75 [TapiLocation] CountryCode=1 Dialing=Tone AreaCode=760 [Identification] JoinWorkgroup=HOME [Networking] InstallDefaultComponents=No [NetAdapters] Adapter1=params.Adapter1 [params.Adapter1] INFID=* [NetClients] MS_MSClient=params.MS_MSClient [NetServices] MS_SERVER=params.MS_SERVER [NetProtocols] MS_TCPIP=params.MS_TCPIP MS_NWIPX=params.MS_NWIPX [params.MS_TCPIP] DNS=Yes UseDomainNameDevolution=No EnableLMHosts=Yes AdapterSections=params.MS_TCPIP.Adapter1 [params.MS_TCPIP.Adapter1] SpecificTo=Adapter1 DHCP=Yes WINS=No NetBIOSOptions=0 [params.MS_NWIPX] VirtualNetworkNumber=00000000 AdapterSections=params.MS_NWIPX.Adapter1 [params.MS_NWIPX.Adapter1] SpecificTo=Adapter1 PktType=0xFF NetworkNumber=00000000 [Components] msnexplr=off zonegames=off [Branding] BrandIEUsingUnattended=Yes [URL] Home_Page=about:blank [Commands] "%systemdrive%\install\install.CMD" [GuiRunOnce] %systemdrive%\install\main_batch.cmd %systemdrive%\install\applications.cmd %systemdrive%\install\reg.cmd %systemdrive%\install\cleanup.cmd %systemdrive%\install\shutdown.cmd By doing that, it will look @ my install.cmd file under the install folder...inside the batch file: install.cmd @ECHO OFF net user Joe /add>nul net localgroup administrators Joe /add>nul This will make the user Joe, and place him in the usergroup, administrators. So...when XP boots into gui mode, it should log into the Joe account and then run EVERYTHING in my [GuiRunOnce] section, correct? Also, what's up with the >nul command at the end? I hope this works
  12. lol, I thought that was funny at the end of your post you said apologized for your english, cuz you are Chinese. Man, you have perfect English, and THANK YOU for not only telling us what to do on the user creation using cmdlines.txt , but ALSO how to set it up. Well...back to my cave, l8er all!
  13. I am an avid divx and xvid movie encoder and love having the divx file install automatically, but I don't like installing all my other codecs manually. I came across the SLD Codec Pack by skynet team and it's great. Does anyone know how to install this one silently? Or how to extract the files from the install. I'm wondering, will installshield developer allow me to extract the files? I don't wanna rummage through old cd's to install it and find out it won't work. I haven't spent any time on the site seeing if anyone has asked yet, but will later today: www.skynet4ever.tk Enjoy!
  14. I'll definitely look into that. I just acquired vmware workstation 4, so I can actually test out my CD. I don't wanna burn it, just to find out something doesn't work. Besides, once I get it down, I am gonna be networking with a friend to burn a bootable dvd. I got together with 3 other co-workers and we are actually working on a number of different ideas, so hopefully within the next day or two I will have a step by step process on creating an account, logging onto that account, and installing everything. Well, best of luck and lemme know of any updates!
  15. Ok, because this is SUPPOSED to be unattended, this would definitely be nice if it worked, and I am extremely tired of looking over the net. I got the net user, net localgroup, runas commands down like the back of my hand, and I know that everything works, I've tried it on the local machine pointing to my files. Anyways, when you go to runas...it asks for that user's password. I haven't found any sources that show you how to autologin using the cmd prompt. I have tried all different types of things and to no avail. Does anyone know how to do a runas command and have it put the password in automatically for you? This would make things better, as I am a sysop for a local computer shop, and this would help out alot for doing our machines. Having 10 machines install XP, apply reg tweaks, and install misc applications....man oh man, could get 10 machines built up and running in about an 2 hours, while working on other machines, WOOHOO!
