I spend many time trying to create partitions like is explained inside "Unattended Windows Setup Reference for Windows 7.chm:

- Unattended Installation Settings Reference

- Components

- Microsoft-Windows-Setup

- DiskConfiguration

- Disk

- ModifyPartition

- Extend

Whithout success and always errors! It seems there is an error inside the .chm document!?

But if I change like this, works fine: :whistle:

Yay, I ran into new problem. What do I need to change/set in the answer file to change time and currency format? I am preparing an image for notebook for foreign employees and the system language needs to be english of course. The catch is I absolutely hate american format and want it changed. The most universal would be UK english format I guess, but how do I set that? WSIM documentation only mentions en-US. I need to set what you find in control panel-region and language-format tab. Which setting is that?

Actually, nevermind. Figured it out. The only thing I am unhappy about is I have two keyboard layouts installed now.

Fighting with setting searsch scopes atm. I can't seem to manage to eliminate Bing!

1) Is there a way to DELETE a search scope?

2) Tthis doesn't seem to work fully:

<ShowSearchSuggestions>false</ShowSearchSuggestions>
</Scope>
</SearchScopes>
<DisableDevTools>true</DisableDevTools>
</component>

posted whole component code in case there;s something bad elsewhere...

What I managed to do is adding Google as search, BUT it;s not default and the **** Bing is still there, and as number one.

Please help! :)

systemlocale is not needed in oobesystem?

Btw from help I was unable to tell which keyboard is the "US". That, afaik, is the only one that doesn't require you to press the key for quotes twice.

I don't use with my Autounattend.xml file, inside <settings pass="oobeSystem">, and works fine; because it's already set inside: <settings pass="windowsPE">

About Keyboards; look inside the Registry:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Keyboard Layouts]

en-US


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Keyboard Layouts\00000409]
"Layout Text"="US"
"Layout Display Name"="@%SystemRoot%\\system32\\input.dll,-5000"
"Layout File"="KBDUS.DLL"

en-GB


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Keyboard Layouts\00000809]
"Layout File"="KBDUK.DLL"
"Layout Text"="United Kingdom"
"Layout Display Name"="@%SystemRoot%\\system32\\input.dll,-5025"

And to add a bit more to the unattended mystery, I do have the Total Commander ini file copying working:



<SynchronousCommand wcm:action="add">
<Order>12</Order>
<CommandLine>cmd /c copy /y "%systemdrive%\install\TotalCommander\wincmd.ini" "%programfiles(x86)%\totalcmd\"</CommandLine>
<Description>copy Total Commander settings</Description>
</SynchronousCommand>


but the SAME thing, only for UltraVNC, does not work at all!!!



<SynchronousCommand wcm:action="add">
<Order>14</Order>
<CommandLine>cmd /c copy /y "%systemdrive%\install\UltraVNC\UltraVNC.ini" "%programfiles%\UltraVNC\"</CommandLine>
<Description>copy UltraVNC settings</Description>
</SynchronousCommand>


What in the hell is this?

Is there a way to save output from these windows, like when it says "1 file copied" etc.?

And to add a bit more to the unattended mystery,

Using quotes (") with Autounattend.xml, the best way is to check your file with WSIM and use: " (or write manually) like you will see when you save your customized Autounattend.xml file.

About Ultra_VNC, if using " do not work you can look at this post to create an unattended installation:

http://www.msfn.org/...post__p__947388

However, it seems you need to use the 64-bit version for your 64-bit computer !?

I think I used to use xcopy to copy individual files back when everything worked, but I changed that (probably cause I saw no point in xcopy).

Oh and I found an article about search providers: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2444193

Maybe it is related. I think it was ok until I actually launched IE - before that the provider was set correctly when I checked from control panel, internet options. I will try it again with different image, because I have no idea anymore - too many attempts and lost track.

Yes, using IE9 I found some problem with customization inside Autounattend.xml and I use now my IE9.reg file saved. No problem found with IE8.

You can find help here and later:

http://www.msfn.org/...post__p__970068

I managed to solve it by manually removing Bing by editing registry before capturing the image :P Awkward but worked.

Hey MaxXPSoft, I am pasting (unable to upload the xml, don't know why) my xml here and I have few problems, please help me solve these problems:

1. When I install my OS my user folder comes as read only folder, so I am unable to use silent installer of google chrome and some of the registries, I am trying with setupcomplete.cmd in "%windir%\setup" folder. How can I rectify this probelm?

2. Os is still sking for PC name and security settings (please see the screenshots), even after setting both the things in autounattend.xml.

3. Can I change the window color to black from default blue? I remember I have seen some where by which we can change the default from blue to some custom color, but not remember now.

Again, I told you many times, removes those lines, because they are deprecated for Windows 7:

<OOBE>

<SkipMachineOOBE>true</SkipMachineOOBE>

<SkipUserOOBE>true</SkipUserOOBE>

</OOBE>

And try to give another name for your computer!

You have only one Administrator account !

Set SetupComplete.cmd inside: %DVD%\sources\$OEM$\$$\Setup\scripts\SetupComplete.cmd

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd744268(WS.10).aspx

Did you, I am sorry mate I don't remember. BTW thanks for your help. But can't we use "%windir%\Setup\Scripts\setupcomplete.cmd" to install some applications which require permission to access User (Administrator) folder, like google Chrome? Runonce registry is also not working

I also wish to know can shell command do the trick?

Edit: I have already tried shell command but not working.

Again, I told you many times, removes those lines, because they are deprecated for Windows 7:

<OOBE>

<SkipMachineOOBE>true</SkipMachineOOBE>

<SkipUserOOBE>true</SkipUserOOBE>

</OOBE>

And try to give another name for your computer!

I think u better use "%SystemRoot%" instead "%WinDir%", even it's the same but the variable use for different purpose.

See initiation of the installation is not the problem other silent installers are running fine, but "Administrator" is read only folder so chrome installer is unable to put the files in the Administrator folder, I have tried "ShellExecute" command of Autoit and it is also not working.

Anymore suggestions?

Can you share the same with me? I have found one over here: https://www.google.com/chrome/eula.html?system=true&standalone=1

but I don't think this one is a silent installer further I don't want that first run window as well.

yes, I use that link to download google chrome offline installer for all user. it doesn't work for u? I login into my built in admin account I also found google chrome menu in all programs in start menu, but still we need to reconfigure that.

note: I dont trim my windows image (I'm not windows lite fans boys), I prefer use the existing windows component instead installing third party's software.

I tested successfully with only Administrator account (like your example) but with this value: <LogonCount>3</LogonCount>


<AutoLogon>
<Password>
<Value></Value>
</Password>
<Enabled>true</Enabled>
<LogonCount>3</LogonCount>
<Username>Administrator</Username>
</AutoLogon>

And using SetupComplete.cmd and ChromeStandaloneSetup.exe inside: Distribution_Folder\$OEM$\$\Setup\Scripts (I don't know the silent switches for Google Chrome!)

SetupComplete.cmd


@echo off
cmd /c "%~dp0ChromeStandaloneSetup.exe"
exit

And all is fine and works! I hope that can help you.

Images Google Chrome

*Edit: However I downloaded ChromeStandaloneSetup.exe with Firefox; because for some reason I was unable to download with IE9!

*Edit 2: I found the workaround about downloading files with IE9 with links: https:// (example like: download link for ChromeStandaloneSetup.exe)

Wow, you are really a life saver man, I already have silent installer of Google Chrome, I would try this and let you know the result.

I also wish to know can I use OEM folder to apply some registries which require admin's privileges?

You can add some registry settings inside the same folder location: Scripts. Example:

SetupComplete.cmd


@echo off
REG ADD HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx
SET KEY=HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx
echo.
REG ADD %KEY%\005 /V 1 /D "REGEDIT /S %SystemRoot%\Setup\Scripts\Tweaks.reg" /f
echo.
cmd /c "%~dp0ChromeStandaloneSetup.exe" /silent /install
exit

Image SetupComplete.cmd and Registry Tweaks

Or we can use FirstLogonCommand inside Autounattend.xml for registry keys using a batch file!
