  1. It took me awhile to get back here, but that was exactly what I wanted, thanks for the help.
  2. This is a stupid question because I should remember, but I do not. I had found a piece of software about 6 months ago that was meant for managing multiple windows install discs for a company. It is a commercial product and I think "Setup" was somewhere in the name. The software would handle slipstreaming and adding of post install applications. I cant remember the softwares name at all but I want to find it again, any chance one of you knows what software I am talking about? It handled automatically downloading the right updates and drivers and adding them to the installs. I can do all of this myself, but for the company I work at they are willing to buy this, so if I can get something that makes it all easier I will. Anyone know?
  3. Thanks for the update. It worked perfect on my PE disc. My next question is about updating your drivers. Say you release 3.0.4 with a few more controllers supported. Can I just apply the 3.0.4 to my already 3.0.3 PE directory? Will it understand and just work, or will it duplicate all the entries?
  4. I extracted the contents of my winpe disc to the hard drive in the c:\work directory. I then type in c:\work into raid slipstreamer and select manual and winpe. I then select windows xp.. I hit the proceed button and it just disappears off screen without doing anything.
  5. Does one exist, or a simple method to do so? I have about 8 that I have made over time and I want to merge them all together without redoing all the work in nLite.
  6. I load up nLite 1.2.1. I select my XP Pro+sp2 Retail directory. I select hotfixes and insert the ie7-windowsxp-x86-enu.exe. Then I hit next and hit yes to process them. It starts processing and then I get a big message box titled: "Install Windows Internet Explorer", it has a list titled "Avalable Switches" with all the switches from iesetup I beleive shown. I hit OK on this message box and I get a second message box, this one says "Error!" in the title and "IE7-WindowsXP-x86-enu - Hotfix integration failed. Please Report if this is unexpected." as the text. So, whats happening here?
  7. Im not a big fan of bumping, but this is still a problem for me, maybe I have the wrong ie7 installer? maybe there is a better one?
  8. Nope, your right. We basically said the same thing.
  9. uid0, the script (floppy shared it with me) works on corp/vlk, oem, and retail for me. I've tested it on all three now on both home and pro.
  10. Can anyone share a key change script like promptkey.vbs with me? I want to add that to mine as well.
  11. I have run into a system where somehow the raid drivers for the system drive are no longer there. No idea how that happened to him, but it did. So now I can only boot into my PE disc when I load up the drivers during boot to see the drive. Trying to boot into his windows normally fails horribly. How do I, from a PE environment, insert the raid driver back into his windows? Is it possible to "insert" drivers in some fashion?
  12. I have this in my RunOnceEx.cmd REG ADD %KEY%\040 /VE /D "Installing Internet Explorer 7" /f REG ADD %KEY%\040 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\UN\IE7-Setup.exe /quiet /update-no /norestart" /f Its one of many things in there. Everything else works, and I can see the IE7 install start. I believe it isnt working now because it cant validate the install at that time. How do I get around this?
  13. I tried what visualwhat said to do and it didnt install it. I used nlite addon maker and made the ie7-setup.exe into a cab file (is ie7-setup.exe the right file to be doing this? do I need another ie7?) I added that ie7.cab into the updates section on nlite and prepared the directory, burned the iso and installed. It didnt install ie7, did I miss something? Does it have to be in unattended mode?
  14. I expected as much, this thread was really just wishful thinking. As for corp and vlk being the same, it would seem so. But since I had to different discs with slightly different total sizes I figured their must be a little difference. I wanted to be thorough. Let me ask some add-on questions to this one then. If I want to do this as two discs, one for home and one for pro, what is my plan of attack. I want to use nlite to shrink them all down, can I use the same nlite settings files for all the versions I listed? I also want to apply the driver packs to all of them (BTS using dp base or integrating with nlite), which way is best? I also plan on making them all unattended, does the same winnt.sif apply to all those versions, or do I need a different one for pro and for home? The final question is of course what to use for multiboot, will powerpack suffice? Do I need to do something more custom?
