Se7en_UA - working with Win 8.1

902 posts in this topic

Ok then, I will have to try more and maybe get it to work.

The popups is a bit confusing I guess, I meant the interface is a little weird for me - like I said the way vLite works seems great to me, although this tool is far more advanced in terms of what you can do with it. Anyway, what I meant was - I find it confusing to click on something, be presented with options, click again, "popup" windows with some description appears, click ok, then something else... This kind of stuff. But I guess it just takes some time to get used to.

I still have some questions though:

1) What is this username thing when I copy the files? I don't get it at all.

2) How exactly does the addons tab work? It takes the stuff from current installation, ie. from the system Se7en_UA runs on?

3) Adding drivers - do I need to specify all drivers I want to integrate in one step? I assumed so and copied all my drivers (in separate folders) somewhere, then navigated Se7en_UA there. Result, it crashed without any message. Upon restarting and clicking on "list", I got error message "runtime error 339" stating that mscomctl.ocx is not correctly registered. Hmm... The program still stays loaded btw, so killing the process is necessary.

When I get past the drivers integration I will ask further...

I am sorry to ask dumb questions, but I would really like to get it to work, considering vLite being totally outdated.

1 - Username enter your username you use in windows.

2 - addons yes there are from the os you have installed i,e for example copy favourites from IE.

2 - drivers make a drivers folder inside that you can have subfolders drivers must be unpacked and have inf files not executable package from makers,

use a a driver backup program to grab the drivers already installed on your system. Driver Magician lite version is free.

what is your username? For you don't you think it would be TheWalrus?

This seems a little too advanced for you although my 11 year old knows, uninstall this and go back to your lite stuff

Allright, what that kind of attitude I think I will hold onto something else.

(and just for the record, it is not that clear, cause why would I have to enter my username when I want to modity files somewhere on the hdd...)

Nice app maxXPsoft

Thank you for sharing.

Small bug to report:

When copying from DVD drive Robocopy reports an error

" ERROR : Invalid Parameter #4 : "/MT" "

I got around it by removing the MT parameter from the CDcopy.cmd script Se7en_UA generates. I then ran the CDIMAGE.EXE solo, not through Se7en_UA.exe, because if I run it through Se7en_UA it rewrites the MT parameter into the CDcopy.cmd script.

Once I got around this minor bug all else went smooth with no errors.

Look that writes the name and uses it later on your xml. Maybe a little ahead of time but whats the big deal.

I pop them windows so anyone can copy error message in case.

If you do get error i need to know

OS and x86 or x64

Target OS and x86 or x64

take screenshot if possible

/MT Is probably only windows 7 robocopy and is multiple threads and makes it much faster. I'll make it not write that on any but Se7en

I have not tested the generated ISO. I just left all your info in the xml file as I have not yet taken the time to understand it, and just wanted to quickly try your app.

Is it ok to put my own support info/name/serial ?

Feel free to modify any way you want.

Will this work with the vista service pack 1 dvd and install sp2 if placed in the Hfixes folder ?

EDIT:

just noticed in your first post

works with source dvd vista x86/64 SP2 and Se7en x86/64 RTM

Sorry for the noob questions. I am new to this.

No Vista SP2 has been a pain for me and no way that I could find or anyway to do it. Not like XP where it would allow you to integrate SPs into your sources. Not sure if vlite can get it integrated. If it can then you could then copy the source from that. Hate to say that cause then you have the name all over your images.

You can install and then run the sp2. I kind of skipped vista after they came out with seven and quit trying to figure it out.

No worries.

I like vista because it is more visual. Higher res icons, dreamscenes (if I can get it working on my new 64 bit build. Worked great on my 32 bit.)

I tried 7 and although it runs tight, it seems too plain.

You right about that

One of the first things I noticed was control panel in seven was dull, Vista had a much nicer.

BTW if someone knows how to get the Vista SP2 integrate I will add to this no problem.

You can edit the cleanup.cmd and remove it rebooting and run the sp2 exe right there

Drivers:

I'm working with a 64bit image

When I check on drivers then click on yes

and browse to my drivers folder the user interface goes away

but se7en_UA is still running in task manager and cpu usage is 0%

all my drivers have been copied to C:\Se7en_UA\uaDVD\sources\$oem$\$1\Drivers

The first time I just killed the process in taskmanager and continued on

I was able to make a working DVD to install windows 7

to a virtual machine using an evaluation copy of Vmware 7

could it be a problem with my drivers?

:Edit

Didn't notice the errors before when I packed the image

Im including copies of the ouput whenit was trying to inject the drivers and the drivers.log

Drivers:

Error: 30

The command completed with errors.

That points to a driver problem and you can see which in the cmdoutput. Thats why I pause them so you can see which.

Far as the interface not coming back I'll look into that. First thought before I looked at your cmdoutout was a boatload of drivers. Some of those driver folders you extract has 60 or more inf's in them and takes awhile to process each individually.

What you done was ok and you can complete the creation or try to find a better driver.

Usually and I do mean Se7en has some good driver support so you could install and see if it complains

Thanks for your help. I'll look into getting better drivers.

I tried it with other drivers and some of those worked.

Maybe I'll try the other method and just make a file.

But I still had the interface problem,

if you need any more info about that let me know

and I'll find help on my drivers somewere else so I don't clutter up this thread

Hi there,

first I would would like to say thank you for the work and the good program!! I got one problem though

- after clicking "copy" I'm not asked for a username and directed to selcting the "bootmgr" then my unpacked Win7 is copied into the folder d:\Se7en_UA\uaDVD. Program starts all over, after dos-window is closed and that's it. It is not mared or noted anywhere that it copied the complete dvd.

My system is Win7 64bit, se7en_ua is version 6.0.1, and the unpacked iso I'm using is als win7 64bit.

Any hint?

Kind regards,

shortie

If you had looked at dos window it does tell you if copy was successful and if there are any errors it also says program will close after disk copy and you need to restart it.

1. Forgot to put in revisions. I don't ask for username anymore till applications. There used to be a need earlier on but right now it's ok. May move that back before Addons

2. Look at your dos win that pops up like urie's pic, you can look and see if anything failed from that. usually failed column or skipped. always 1 dir it skips which is root.

It auto restarts after copy and mounts image and extracts files to use later on, if you get no error's through any of those boxes you are ok to proceed.
