  1. Was just wondering, what program are you using to create that splash screen at the initial loading screen? The only .csi I can think of is Corel something... I'd like to be able to put my own there.... with references of course. Cheers, Scott
  2. Wonfderful program I must agree, but I'm having a problem here... I've added two XP Corporate installations (one nLited with SP2 etc). These were all built fine and I packaged the ISO to find it was too large to burn. Going back through the directories I removed some apps to fix that, however, I can't simply run the "Package ISO" command now can I? From what I understand you have to have JUST added a pack (and not left the program) before you can package? Cheers, Scott EDIT- Scratch that... it DOES work, but I have to set all the parameters to the last "Pack" input...
  3. I'm trying to discover what process works for making a slimmed down SP2 Unattended CD. What I'm trying to remove is MUI, OOBE selected elements from jdeboeck's REMOVE script... Has anyone else done this successfully?? I've tried several combinations but I can't seem to get the desired result... Closest I got was... 1) Jdeboeck's remove scripts (MPlayer, Outlook, Games, Drivers etc) 2) Apply SP2 RC1 3) Remove OOBE 4) Remove MUI But upon logon I was greeted with several missing DLL's which consistently crashed me back to reboot... Any success stories would be appreciated, along with the method of making them... Thanks, Scott
  4. Kingroach, do you have a copy of Win XP slipstreamed with SP2 and XPlode is working?? I didn't understand your last message...
  5. Ok, tested running XPlode in my current install with the logging extension... and it worked no problem, now... the only difference between my installation and the virtual one are SP2, and removed MUI and OOBE on the virtual.... don't know if this could be the problem... but it's the only difference that I can see... Cheers anyways, Scott
  6. Sweet, thanks mate... oh and good to see this is the project of a fellow aussie!! Nice work man! [edit] Well, I tried what you guys suggested; I can't seem to run XPlode through the command prompt, either through a batch, or through direct entry... I get no display and upon checking the program files directory there is no change either.... little stumped here.... Can't see anything else wrong with the xml syntax, everything is closed, all the program install arguments shouldn't interfere now... dunno.... [/edit] Scott
  7. Hey guys, yeah wraith, I tried with and without the /log file... will add it for future reference though... Thanks kman, will add the reference to regedit.. it's under system32 right? anyways I'll have a look... So XPlode can be run from command after windows has actually been installed can it?? I tried before from the run dialog, but I'll give it a go in a dos prompt. Thanks for your help guys, Scott
  8. I made the changes to line 113 and 114 removing the <> but it's still not running. I'm not getting any log created so it seems that rather than not parsing the xml, it isn't even actually running XPlode.... Any ideas? Scott
  9. Sorry, bout the key.. forgot it.... The reason I used the <> syntax was because that's how that programs recognisesa silent install... didn't think they would work with xml though... will retry without them and see how I go... Thanks, Scott
  10. Ok, so I've gone throught the guide... (and although it seems pretty out of date still referring to xpinstall I understood it all) Here is what I have to far cmdlines.txt [Commands] "%systemdrive%\Install\XPlode.exe /log:#systemdrive#\Install\XPlode.log" winnt.sif [SetupParams] UserExecute="%SystemDrive%\Install\XPlode.exe" xplode.xml (in $oem$\$1\install) <XPlode> <config> <hidewindow>Windows Update</hidewindow> <hidewindow>CMD.EXe</hidewindow> <show total='6' after='2' subcount='true' /> <!-- turn antialiasing OFF if you're running GUIinstall mode --> <font face='Tahoma' antialias='false' small='8' large='12' /> <!-- note the position attribute -

Thanks, Oh, I'm using XP SP2, jedboecks removal techniques, removed OOBE and MUI... Cheers, Scott
