Just a quick glance as I'm headed to work

I do have a wifi modem and I don't want that window to appear during my installation. I think its a better idea not to remove it.

Wireless? Nice_Guy, verify for us you posted the correct picture that is not showing up. The picture you posted is the EULA that appears during Setup, which should be skipped by the SkipEula object in the WindowsPE pass. Or do you mean the EULA in OOBE (where the Wireless screen also appears) ?

I am talking about EULA only, MaxXPSoft has asked me about wireless network and I replied to his query only. I have no problem of EULA in OOBE, the window is appearing during the setup only. And yes you are right, you mean "<AcceptEula>true</AcceptEula>"?

Please see my Autounattend.xml I have posted.

HideWirelessSetupInOOBE is part of Windows Welcome so it may be triggering EULA

other than that add your key(yes I know you integrate) to see if that helps

Ok I guss there is some problem with my boot.wim, I have done some customization in the boot.wim so only it is creating trouble, I did try with with default boot.wim downloaded from official website and my xml worked perfectly (no EULA window), now I have to figure out what is forcing that EULA window to appear. I remember once I tried to integrate xml using Windows 7 toolkit that might have created the problem.

I have a related question, I have actually created a SP1 disk (captured install.wim) from RTM by reverse integration now I want to know can I use boot.wim of the SP1 OS I have downloaded from MS or I have to use the same boot.wim of RTM only?

yes unfortunately none of us know what has been done to things so we have to guess at what might be wrong with a normal installation. I didn't think boot.wim would still be influencing OOBE but apparently am wrong unless it is modded files

I would think boot.wim should be generic but I have not scoured them that much. Only for mod files I do

Yes, you can.

I tested and works fine for me, changing only install.wim customized (using sysprep and capture) inside Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 MSDN.

Works also if you keep your original Windows 7 SP0 and changing only install.wim SP1 customized (using reverse integration).

This one I have been doing since very long and yes it does work properly.

Yes, you can.

You are right, I have tried it for the first time and it did work perfectly. And I was right, there was something wrong with my boot.wim, I have changed my boot.wim from the one I have downloaded from MS and now everything is working perfectly. Most importantly "NO EULA WINDOW". And yes, I had to change the setup.exe of sources folder as well, Boot.wim and setup.exe should be from the same OS.

That's very bad idea, noone knows what gets screwed up by such awkward methods.

Why don't you just download SP1 image from official sources?

Well there is nothing wrong in this, I have already tried and everything is working fine. I already have SP1 image downloaded from MS but I asked so as I have made loads of customization in my reverse integrated wim so I would stick to that image only.

I have a kind of WTF situation here.

I get all those system locale and EULA and whatever things pop up on me despite having autounattend.xml in the right place.

When I click through that, setup says it needs drivers for CD/DVD drive or some crap like that.

Furthermore, it DOES work in a VM.

It also says there are no images available when I somehow manage to make it work.

This is unattended file I used for months and it simply worked without problems. I have no idea what's going on :-O

I am completely out of ideas what's wrong. Could anyone tell?

Ok now It simply says there are no images even in VM.

Someone please run through the file briefly, I can't see anything wrong there.

Silly question. Can you see images in the VM if you don't use the XML?

I don't understand.

I am saying I am getting the "there are no images available" error during setup even when trying to install in a VM.

I know I did have this problem months ago and solved it somehow with the unattended file, but this one was being successfully used for half a yeart.

I really have no idea what's the cause. If I don't use autounattend.xml AT ALL, I can install the **** system. lol. There is SOMETHING wrong in my file but I have absolutely no idea what.

How on earth can this



<ProductKey>
<Key>237XB-GDJ7B-MV8MH-98QJM-24367</Key>
</ProductKey>


cause the image not to be recognized and this



<ProductKey>74T2M-DKDBC-788W3-H689G-6P6GT</ProductKey>


makes the setup process normally???!! The first one is according to WSIM documentation even!

edit: damnit, it doesn't work. Setup lets me continue but after restart I am asked for product key. ****!

Why would you use an HP OEM key during the WinPE phase? If you want to provide a product key at this point you would use the applicable install key.

http://www.cluberti.com/blog/2009/08/11/default-keys-for-vista-and-windows-7-deployment/

You can find the install key master list in the pid.txt on the Windows 7 DVD.

That's a good point. I slapped it in there because I am installing a new laptop for my father in law.

After bout ten hours of desperate attempts and googling like mad I finally tried to use Specialize\Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup\ProductKey instead of doing it in WindowsPE phase and it magically works.

What you say kinda makes sense but I always put the keys in here and it worked. Both HP and Lenovo ones. It's really weird. Sigh.

in windowsPE you use

<component name="Microsoft-Windows-Setup"

       <ProductKey>
<Key>237XB-GDJ7B-MV8MH-98QJM-24367</Key>
</ProductKey>

in specialize you use

<component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup"

<ProductKey>74T2M-DKDBC-788W3-H689G-6P6GT</ProductKey>

I use both and no problems

I must ask does this work ???

Yup the drivers thing works flawlessly. <Path>$WinPEDriver$</Path> that is.

I am having some really weird problems with setup process anyway. Fistly, 95% of the time I get this weird popup saying there is no driver to be found for CD/DVD drive, which makes no sense. If I copy standard Intel SATA driver files onto something and feed it in, it processes further. Sometimes I don't get it. Huh.

What REALLY sucks is that after the product key change I can basically install normally but on physical machine, starting with firstlogoncommands I get weird errors about not being able register some flash files (flash player being one of the things I install that way), and when the **** OS is supposed to start for the first time, upon showing the desktop it yells out that I am logged on with default profile of some sort and some path (which ironically mentions default profile) is not accessible anymore.

Really totally odd stuff happening here.

Hi,

Sorry for interrupting.

I am trying to do a fully autounattended setup of windows 7 SP1.

All goes well until the part where you have to enter your "User name for your account".

I thought entering the LocalAccount would prevent me from having to do this but I still get the question.

Also after that I have to still select which option I want for the "Help protect your computer and improve Windows".

This screen:

Also the computername is random how can I have them something like this: winpc-01, winpc-02, ...

And I placed a *.jpg in the *OEM\$1 folder, this would be placed under the C folder of the pc I read somewhere but the desktop doesn't change...

I've been looking on the web for sometime now but can't really find a specific solution for my problem.

Than again maybe I'm looking at the wrong places...

Look up "ProtectMyPC" in unattend.chm to find how to get that protect page to be hidden.

You can't add the Administrator account in unattend because it already exists.

For wallpaper, look up Theme in the chm. You need to provide background, a theme name and set the default to off.

Sorry I didn't post links but I'm going from memory atm.

Might as well try asking here.

I am trying to install ATI Catalyst driver with firstlogoncommands.

The code is as follows

                    <CommandLine>cmd /c %systemdrive%\TEMP\graphics\bin64\setup.exe /unattended_install:c:\temp\graphics\Packages\Apps\CIM\Win64;c:\temp\graphics\Packages\Drivers\Display\W76A_INF;c:\temp\graphics\Packages\Drivers\WDM\HDMI\W764a;c:\temp\graphics\Packages\Apps\PXProfile;c:\temp\graphics\Packages\Apps\IntelMedia\WinW764a /force_hide_first_run /autoaccept_all /force_close_when_done /ON_REBOOT_MESSAGE:YES</CommandLine>

This works perfectly when executed manually. However, in unattended setup it doesn't do anything. I don't even see a new cmd window pop up like with other stuff I install. Is there anything wrong about the code?

I tried the following:

-double backslashes (not sure how this works yet, see my other thread here)

- no "cmd /c"

- "cmd /c start /wait"

There must be a catch somewhere. Grr.

I got another question regarding firstlogoncommands.

1) They are executed in the order they are put in the answer file, or in the order of their numbers?

2) what happens if something causes the PC to restart before they are all executed? will they continue after next boot? If not, what do I do in case of say installing graphics drivers which need restart, but other commands need to be executed after that?

1. By the number

2. One shot at this if something happens it will not re-run

ATI Catalyst suite has been one of the worst to try and install as I have had ATI since I started doing this.

Simplest method is browse to C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository. Do a search within file contents for atiilhag.inf

I use FREE 32 0r 64 bit Agentransack

Copy that whole folder to a folder in $OEM$ called $WinPEDriver$ and use the xml.

Add this to your AutoUnattend.xml in <settings pass="windowsPE">

        <component name="Microsoft-Windows-PnpCustomizationsWinPE" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
<DriverPaths>
<PathAndCredentials wcm:action="add" wcm:keyValue="1">
<Path>$WinPEDriver$</Path>
</PathAndCredentials>
</DriverPaths>
</component>

That will get basic driver done then you can install the bloatware ATI Catalyst suite later. I don't use it and will not install it.

EDIT: Doing this way will not need a reboot first
