Default User .reg reg question....
Posted 25 February 2005 - 09:03 PM
Cause if it work... ill remove my regedit /s tweaks.reg in my cmdlines.txt!
What do you think about that?

So, firstly, it doesn't matter which way u appy
using HKEY_CURRENT_USER or HKEY_USER\.DEFAULT\
bcoz both are the same for the setup at t-12..
Secondly, u have to apply the tweaks at t-12, that too before the ceration of any user account. Bcoz, the settings from the DEFAULT user get copied to any new user created, so it is best the apply the tweaks at t-12, unless u plan to create users after GUIRUNONCE, which is very awck.
Hope this helps

Im a IT , so i install ALOTS off computer of differents clients... some are french or english ,OEM or retail... hehe
So i always use the CD of my clients ... SO! i cannot use cmdlines.txt cause no one are able to tell my if there a way to make it from a floopy disk ( with my winnt.sif on it).
That why i ask this question. If HKEY_USER\.DEFAULT can work... so i can logon the first time with the admin and apply this tweak.... and when ill log with the fist account, all will me ok.
Hehe, this is a little tricky!

But, be sure to create new user accounts only after applying tweaks on the DEFAULT user (whenever - at t-12 or at first logon as Admin user)
And btw, if u are not creating uA cd's and using original windows setup cd's where do u have ur $OEM$ folder for installing "ALOTS" of software ?..lol

To be honest, that's not a bad thing since if the Admin account is used properly, then it shouldn't need the usual 'user tweaks'.
Secondly FeTT!, are you saying that the advice I gave in the post you linked to works? or have you indeed found a working solution.

First with USERS\.DEFAULT and second with CURRENT USER.
so these tweaks will apply to all users.
Some system specific tweaks do however need to be applied to LOCAL MACHINE. Don't change these regtweaks or they will not work

Sign in with a differt User and go to C:\Documents and Settings\User (Not DEFAULT USER) and copy NTUSER.DAT to $OEM$\$Docs\Default User\ Than with setup all your settings will be done
