  1. not that i am aware of. i'm afraid we have to live with what adobe forces us to install. i tried to get rid of some bloatware but then i had problems with updates for some reason.
  2. agree that you need as much RAM as your mobo and OS can handle. and make sure it's dual channel. also dual or quad core CPU helps a lot while working with big files.
  3. this should help if you want to start win2k3 setup out of folder renamed (from i386 to something else) open setupldr.bin with hex editor go to hex address 0x2060 replace value 74 03 with EB 1A save file now you can edit setupldr.bin by replacing 5 occurences of i386 and 2 occurences of I386 with whatever you want, although i assume you've alrerady done so
  4. as long as you mean "disk image" as XP installation bootdisk ISO, yes, you can put a txt file there. XP setup will ignore it during installation anyway.
  5. not 100% sure but i think you don't need to install framework 2 either, just do 1.1, 1.1sp1, 3 and 3.5. if i'm mistaken please correct me.
  6. seagate all the way been using this brand as far as i remember
  7. most of the icons (quite a lot actually) you can change hacking shell32.dll. find shell32.dl_ file in I386 folder, and uncab it with this command in command prompt window: expand -r shell32.dl_ now you have unpacked shell32.dll which you may open with Resource Hacker. on the left pane expand Icon Group folder, so you'll see all the icons to be changed. right-click any you want and choose Replace resource... or in the menu click Action and Replace Icon... this way you may also change bitmaps, cursors, and more... having changed your icons you have to re-cab shell32.dll with this command (command prompt too) you got shell32.dl_ again but hacked with your icons, so copy it back to I386 folder overwriting an older one, and install XP. now your icons are set for good
  8. if you want to change setup bilboards, have a look here: winntbbued
  9. the 1st option with editing boot.ini works only if you rename VistaBoot.exe into 8.3 filename format, ie. vistboot.exe, and boot.ini should look like this [boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN /FASTDETECT /Kernel=vistboot.exe
  10. 15 mins here - setup is about 240 megs.
  11. yes, you can do this. actually i do this all the time. you just need to compress modified files and copy/overwrite them into nlited xp folder or iso image. (i use UltraIso.) let's say you want modified shell32.dll in your setup cd. open command prompt, navigate to folder where your new file is, and type: makecab shell32.dll you'll get a new compressed file shell32.dl_ ready to copy.
  12. glad to hear all's ok now. good luck B)
  13. maybe this will help Windows Script 5.6 for Windows XP B)
  14. ever since i knew how to disable WFP i've kept it disabled, and never ever had problems with it. and it's been years = a long time. on the other hand though, i keep monitoring any changes occuring to my system (registry and files) with Ashampoo Unistaller Suite. that way i know in details what exactly happens here. that way i can also reverse any changes (including bad installations) that i find as not right. thus, WFP is completely useless for me. plus, of course, i can alter any system files lijke libraries myself - changing icons and bitmaps in order to customize my winxp my way. thnx nuhi for a nice and useful option in nlite.
  15. check winnt.sif file for this: [Shell] DefaultStartPanelOff = No CustomDefaultThemeFile = "%WinDir%\Resources\Themes\xxx.theme" i might be wrong but something tells me that nlite misses the 1st entry under [shell]. don't know for sure because i use another method to integrate my own theme. why? because nlite couldn't copy my wallpaper which is a part of my theme.
