WinNTSetup v3.8.6 / 3.8.7 Beta 4

Hi,

I've tried out this program (started from hirens boot cd) on a Dell Optiplex 790, with an original 7 enterprise x64 SP1 .wim file. When I deploy it without changing any other settings, it works fine, but if I deploy it and try to add drivers (http://en.community.dell.com/techcenter/enterprise-client/w/wiki/optiplex-790-windows-7-driver-cab.aspx or the general dell desktop pack, same problem), it fails.

It deploys, it reboots, but the screen stays black but you see the mouse pointer (not always tho'). you can't do anything (ctrl alt del, powerbutton on the pc to get a clean reboot etc doesn't work), only turn of the power/hold in the powerbutton. If you turn it on again, the problem is exactly the same.

Any idea what could be wrong?

EDIT: nevermind, I had the pc connected with the imageport and vga (tried the imageport first but didn't seem to work, so used vga), what caused the problem once in windows when the drivers got installed -_-

Can I use this tool for Windows 8 Consumer Preview?

Yes you can :)

Win 8 Setup ISO was mounted via R-mouse in ImDisk Virtual drive

and then WinNTSetup was used to prepare the Target drive.

Reboot and then Install of Windows 8 is extremely fast (a few minutes).

Hi, sorry I'm a little confused (noob). Will this program help me install a slimmed down XP (MicroXP) onto a thumb drive and run the OS from it as if I did not have a hard drive on the system?

I just need to run a single simple program on this computer and I only want to use a 4GB usb drive and not install a sata HD.

thanks

MicroXP is a WAREZ release. :ph34r:

As such it is not supported in ANY way on MSFN.

Be VERY aware of Rule #1.a:

http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?app=forums&module=extras&section=boardrules

If you want to put your OWN, licensed XP on a USB stick you'd better use this tool here:

http://www.911cd.net/forums//index.php?showtopic=23553&hl=

or the good ol' way (automated):

http://www.usboot.org/tiki-index.php

Manual:

http://www.911cd.net/forums//index.php?showtopic=14181&hl=

(look for Tutorials in Dietmar's signature)

Please note how this Forum is called:

Install Windows from USB

And NOT:

Install Windows to USB

First post of this thread, however:

....

Not Supported:

  • - No Windows embedded version (this includes WinFLP)
  • - No Installation onto USB disk *New* only Windows 7 and later

clerly states how the tool in this thread does allow for installing to USB BUT for Windows 7 ONLY

What license is WinNTSetup released under?

None. So let's say freeware :)

Actually by the high download count I should consider changing to the beerware license :D

Nice tool, congratulations.

Are you still developing it? I would add a save/load button for ease of use.

Is there anyway to add the features mentioned in this program? http://www.911cd.net/forums//index.php?showtopic=12201

When I install Windows XP, I want to sometimes use the customers key instead of loading my own unattended file...yeah I know I could just edit the unattended file before loading it, but anyway more features cant hurt.

And which features of a program that hasn't even been posted about in five years do you think are important to add to this one that is constantly being updated and talked about?

Cheers and Regards

Like I said, the option to load a settings file, that basically are the settings from the unattended and present it in a GUI so the user can change some options on the fly instead of editing and saving template files.

You can load /save settings with CTRL +S and CTRL +L

XP Setup Launcher, I don't know this tool and screen shots and download links aren't working anymore.

If this all about having gui options for unattended file then no won't be integrated.

You could easily create your own editor tools for this with autoit3, that could do exactly what you want.
