Se7en_UA - working with Win 8.1

902 posts in this topic

Could copy the uaDvd folder and use that as reference image so don't have to re-do sp1. I know that takes awhile

If your zDrivers.txt, zFEATURES.TXT, zPackagelist.txt are 0 byte just delete them and restart

I've been having the same issues again after re-installing and starting from scratch on the virtual hdd, but I found the cause and through I'd share my solution... Simply remove the read only flag on Se7en_UA\uaDVD\sources\install.wim. After copying it from the DVD source, it seems that the flag was never changed. Of course, removing read only on the whole directory works too ;)

lol,I had my vhd at 8gb and it ran out of space while working with the wim files. I'll have to start again tomorrow evening now... oops :)

Hi.

I'm having a problem with the step where I integrate the uncompressed SP1 files.

All the previous steps completed ok.

I have attached the output to this post..

The error says I am on dism for Vista:

Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool

Version: 6.1.7600.16385

But I have WAIK for Windows 7 installed...

Thanks for you assistance.

do what urie said

Yes early on we discovered running commands on dism it worked when you didn't have it in a folder with spaces. They get away with it on other programs since they are using dll

hi max & urie, is there any extra tweak to apply for notebook, here is the specs :

Model type : Acer Aspire 4540

Processor : AMD Turion II Dual Core Mobile Mobile M520

RAM : DDR2 2048MB X 2 (4 GB) PC2-6400 (400 MHZ)

Graphics : Ati Radeon HD 4200

the problem actually is not with Se7en_UA itself becuz I have managed succesfull installing needed aplication also drivers n update package too, but seem the windows process perform slowly than I expected. It's different with using vista or XP with lot of aplication there(it's fresh install here).

I do remember with ur tweaks in Vista_UA managed the performances very fast, but eeergh why this notebook cant work just like other?

I'm sorry if this is out of topics with Se7en_UA, but since there's also tweak setting with ur programs, maybe u can tell me which tweaks I missed so I can add that in Se7en_UA? Or this notebook is not fit for Windows 7?

Not OT since I tweak with program also.

Hard to tell my laptop run ok with my tweaking. there is a collection of tweaks on MDL here might try some of them a little at a time http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/23206-Big-Collection-Of-Windows-7-Reg-Tweaks

or

http://www.askvg.com/master-tutorial-to-make-your-windows-7-super-fast/

If you see which work I might can add

Also do you load that Ati catalyst or control panel stuff? I use the one from Windows Update minus any extra stuff install and go here

C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\

I search using Agent ransack and find a file containing "ATI Technologies"

found the c7112964.inf.xxxx folder, and copied it for use.

I'm looking for that tweak speed up Windows Explorer, had it applied and all was fine but reinstalled and it slow again. Forgot what I had done cause I was testing it.

I'm talking about if I plug a U3 type usb drive in and go to explorer it takes awhile to load the drive

yes max, seem windows explorer caused this notebook slow if my nephew do multitasking (an example browsing the web, makin' graphics with explorer open).

I've used registry tweak from MDL also askvg source, but no luck. I'll try with the ati drivers as u suggested.

thx max, but I do hope u can implement windows explorer tweak (if u do remember that offcourse).

This what worked for me on the U3 usb drives. I can instantly open them after disabling. Power users will want to disable the Sharing Wizard.

Same as Tools, Folder Options, View, uncheck Use Sharing Wizard. Might need reboot

;41 Use Sharing Wizard - Disabled
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]
"SharingWizardOn"=dword:00000000

thx max!

eeergh almost forgot, I recently try using vmware, somehow the latest hotfix packages (x64) from Solor website have made the installation failed (the error message is : "There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program required for this install to complete could not be run.", restarted now give this error message "The computer restart unexpectedly or encountered an unexpecter error").

Detail installation :

1. DVD source : en_windows_7_ultimate_with_sp1_x64_dvd_u_677332.iso

2. Hotfix package

note : I'm tryin' to find out what caused this happen, I didn't include Se7en_UA log becuz it's not error from the aplication (test with only add silent installer n add that, no problem), but seem I've mess up integrating superseeded or hotfix that didn't fit for the OS itself, hmmmm...

max, what logfile in the windows folder that record the installation process? it's in panther or ?

edit: found out, member in MDL name chiperfx give me the clue, KB2506143 will break the installation, it should not integrated in the offline image.

to all, if u want to integrate KB2506143, do in setupcmd (or u may installed with silent switches, dont INTEGRATED that in offline image).

max, just suggestion, why not add change atribut command from robocopy in "Copy Seven DVD" in Se7en_UA? If we copy the source from DVD (which naturally the attribute file will be "read-only"), our copy will be read-only too n it make dism failed to mount the image (u fix that in the previous version, why u need to change that?).

also max, u're right, slow performance in windows 7 installation in notebook becuz driver problem, after the driver updated, all normal n the performance just like I expected.

also I need to add something, some registry tweak will failed too if we havent update our pc/notebook driver. (the registy succesfull imported, but when I check the regedit, the entry still empty, update the computer driver than the entry appear, magic?).

Ok I made a fix and changed to /COPY:DT so it don't copy attributes. I also added back the attrib but folders still have the R on them.

I been seeing that since Vista, don't understand why if you attrib it still leave the R

Maybe not magic. Was it a reg key that might need a reboot first?

no max, I've reboot, check the regedit, empty, imported the tweak again, reboot, check the regedit, still empty.

I found yellow mark in wireless lan setting in device manager, updated the driver (it ask for reboot so I reboot), n suddenly when I check the registry, the entry is present so I think it's related.

did you check permissions on that key or parent? what key is it?

applying a driver will write keys also

it's HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE setting in registry, even with build in admin n advance take ownership, windows system reject that until the driver have properly configured.

this is part of the registry entry (taken from ur registry tweak, notebook with bluetooth or wireless lan always have problem with such this service entry) :


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\DPS]
"Start"=dword:00000003
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\iphlpsvc]
"Start"=dword:00000003
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\RemoteRegistry]
"Start"=dword:00000004
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\TrkWks]
"Start"=dword:00000003

I think it's becuz related to network, right?

oooh I almost forget, Windows 7 SP0 seems always set numlock on in notebook (not PC) keyboard setting, but SP1 seems have fix this.
