How to add WPI to a Windows CD\DVD!

41 posts in this topic

This is fine unless it's on ANY accessible drive with WPI.EXE in the EXACT position/folder.

Better to find a VERY unique filename first then hard-set the Path... UBCD98SE (don't bother looking for it) used a VBS to find "Ready" CD-ROM types (ONLY) to ensure that it was a (obviously) Ready CD-ROM...AND...the File in question existed.

Just my $.02...

source.rar is not access-able plz re-upload it.

You can download reading the manual or here:

http://www.wpiw.net/downloads/Sources.rar

But it's for Windows Vista, Server 2008 and Windows 7 !

Cheers

Windows Vista\7 Disks

Download http://www.wpiw.net/downloads/Sources.rar

Extract to copied Windows source, yes you will need to overwrite\ad to the existing sources folder

Add WPI folder to the root.

Remake Windows ISO using your favorite method.

Hi, I really appreciate this program unfortunately I am really new to this, so can I just add this new sources folder to the existing one on the windows 7 copied installation folder? or can I just copy the Setupcomplete.cmd script to the sources folder on the copied windows 7 installation folder?

Thanks!!

Option 1:

------------

1 - Download and extract the folder Sources.rar

2 - Inside Sources, copy $oem$ inside your Distribution folder: C:\%Distribution_Folder%\sources\$oem$

3 - Using WPI: Add inside Options | Features :

Check: Load desktop before installation starts

Option 2:

-----------

Simply add inside Autounattend.xml file:


<component name="Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS" xmlns:wcm="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WMIConfig/2002/State" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">

Hi, I cant find the distribution folder in the copied windows 7 installation cd? when I open it the copied cd I see boot, efi, langpacks, sources, support, upgrade, and the WPI folder that I copied to the root of the installation folder. When I open the sources folder I see $OEM$ folder, is this where I should copy the downloaded sources folder? thanks in advance

The %Distribution_Folder% is the folder name you given and where all Windows 7 files will be copied.

Example: C:\Win7_SP1

Copy the folder $oem$ (extracted from Sources.rar) inside C:\Win7_SP1\sources\

Copy WPI folder on C:\Win7_SP1\ and launch WPI.exe to cutomize your silent installations!

That's done!

Thank You so much , thats what I thought it was, excuse my neewbishness, Im still learning, this is really a great program!! Better than nlite!! Do you plan on adding an option to add drivers to a windows 7 installation? I would love to see that!! I currently use DISM to add drivers...

You are welcome! :)

About drivers integration you will find help also here using Windows 7:

http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/152813-how-to-create-an-oem-folder/

You can also use WPI to add some specific drivers but it's needed to work a little using SFX files !

Example:

Scan3970.txt


;!@Install@!UTF-8!
; Mode silencieux pour HP Scanjet3970 series x86
GUIMode="2"
RunProgram="hidcon:cmd /c xcopy \"%%T\\*.*\" %SYSTEMDRIVE%\\Drivers\\Scanjet\\ /s /e /i /y"
RunProgram="%SYSTEMDRIVE%\\Drivers\\Scanjet\\DPInst32.exe /SW"
;!@InstallEnd@!

Help inside the sub-forum:

Enjoy !
