im getting the same plug & play monitor problem as reported by Resonate.

I have tried an install on two different pcs Fulji seimens & a Dell GX520 on the same 17" dell tft monitor.

The Fuji installs fine & the plug & play for the monitor dosent come up. When I do a ris install now on a gx520 the part to search the web for drivers apears. you can select to not look on the web then force it to search & then it installs plug & play drivers for the monitor.

The problem seems to occur on what VGA/Display adapter you have in the PC & not with the actual monitor. The GX520 has an intel display adapter.cannot give details of the exact one at present.

Does anyone have a solution to get round this issue as its anoying when you have to put input in on an unattended install..

Hi,

I would do a build with only RyanVM Update pack integrated (presuming you're using RyanVM packs!) to check if the issue is related to this - as I've certainly heard of this happening outside of RIS (and therefore do not think it is specific to either RIS or RISult).

If you're not using the RVM pack then then try leaving out the BTS packs too.

Let me know how it goes.

Cheers,

Andy

Hi,

I'd have a look at this topic over at Ryan's forums:

http://www.ryanvm.ne...ug play monitor

It *may* be something you need to take up over there.

Cheers,

Andy

Another problem..

my build is risult 2.0.4 latest ryan & BTS..

when my machine install s complete C:\D were the bts drivers are held still remains. for some reason the directory is not deleted. it apears as if the guirunonce is not running & the bts cleenup.cmd is not running.

any ideas?

this is what is put into the sif file when RIsULT runs..

[GUIRunOnce]
command9 = "%SystemDrive%\D\BTS_DPs_finish.cmd"
command10 = "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\TEMP\BTS_DPs_cleanup.cmd"

would a runonceEX.cmd run from cmdlines.txt be effecting these commands running.?

Hi,

I've seen this problem myself - and not just with RIS/RISult. It has been mentioned on the BTS forums. My solution is that I add an extra:

command11=cleanup.cmd

to the [GUIRunOnce] section of the SIF file. The cleanup.cmd I create just deletes the "%SystemDrive%\D" folder.

This works for me.

Sorry I can't be more specific.

Cheers,

Andy

you also needto delete the temp folder which contains the bts_cleanup.cmd file.

I think I will add this cleanup to my cleanup commands in my cleanup.cmd which runs after my runoncex.cmd..

Hi,

Yes - you are right. On checking, my cleanup.cmd deletes that folder also.

Hi,

RISult v1.1.6 now available.

Didn't quite finish the necessary work in RISult 1.1.5 to get it working with DP Base 6.03.4.

Now fixed.

Cheers,

Andy

Hi Chiners,

I haven't made any changes to the part concerned with cleanups. I figured that the only way of doing this is to include a cleanup.cmd with the RISult.zip file and add a line to the code to add the following to ristndrd.sif:

[GUIRunOnce]
command11 = cleanup.cmd

Where cleanup.cmd contains:

@echo off
TITLE Unattended Windows XP Service Pack 2 Setup
echo Finalising installation and cleaning up hard disk

del "%systemdrive%\temp\BTS_DPs_cleanup.cmd" /q
rd "%systemdrive%\D" /s /q

shutdown -r -t 60 -c "Computer will now reboot to complete installation"

For the last while I've thought that it should be down to Bashrat to deal with this, and that the C++ version of the DP base may indeed do this.

In the meantime I suggest you keep using cleanup.cmd. If I have time soon I will possibly add it to the pack in the way described above.

Cheers,

Andy

PS - Does anyone else think that cleanup.cmd should be included?

Hi Everyone,

I've just released a new version of RISult. Some fairly big changes in this one :thumbup :

v1.1.6 to v1.1.7 (24/03/06)

New features/bug fixes:

- Added support for "BTS_DriverPacks_BASE_Vxxx.exe" extraction and automatic execution of "DriverPacks_Slipstreamer_Vxxx.cmd" for method 2.
- Included folder structure in RISult.zip file to remove need to create structure manually.
- Included most text-mode Ethernet drivers (Broadcom, Intel, Marvell and Realtek cards/on-board chipset).
- Added ability to run custom script to modify "BTS_DriverPacks_finish.cmd" before slipstream.
- Included sample "btscustom.cmd" to disable ATI CCC via edit of "BTS_DriverPacks_finish.cmd".
- Included "Cleanup.cmd" to aid clearing of temp files after build completes.
- Included "Fedit.exe" necessary for BTS file manipulation (Thanks to djbe on MSFN forums).
- Included "7z.exe" necessary for BTS file extraction (Please see CREDITS section at end of RISult batch file and RISult_Instructions.txt).
- Updated variables pointing to RyanVM files to use latest file names.
- Updated enclosed documentation.


Upshot of all of this is that you now no longer need to manually run BTS_DriverPacks_BASE_Vxxx.exe everytime a new version is released or you want to change your driver pack collection. Just drop the new exe in one folder and/or the DPs in another and re-run RISult :).

Also, the whole file structure is now included within RISult.zip. Just extract to the root of C: and copy your files into the appropriate folders.

I've also followed RogueSpears' lead and included text-mode drivers for Broadcom, Intel, Marvell and Realtek so that you can use RIS with these NICs (files are automatically added to your image).

I've added a "btscustom.cmd" that you can choose to use (it doesn't run by default). Currently it alters BTS files so that ATI's CCC applet (the one that requires .NET FW 1.1) doesn't install.

By request I've included a "Cleanup.cmd" that runs at first logon and deletes any TEMP remnants (such as the "D" folder) that are sometimes present due to BTS processes.

Documentation and file names have been updated. Please be sure to re-read them before running RISult.

Thanks especially go out to djbe for allowing me to include Fedit.exe with this version.

Have Fun ;)

Andy

PS - There will be a bit of a feature freeze from this point on. Bug fixes only, as I'm currently re-writing RISult to use VB and have a GUI interface.

Hi,

I've not noticed this behaviour - are you sure it's down to RISult? Could you post some more details (how you make your build, your SIF file, etc).

Please make sure to remove any licence keys, names, etc.

Cheers,

Andy

After executing RISult.cmd and waiting awhile the end result creates to folders in the RIS_Install dir, $OEM$ and i386. I place the i386 folder into the dir on the Ris server, but where do I place the $OEM$ folder?

Cheers very much

Hi,

In the "Images" folder on your RIS server you will need to create a new folder if you haven't already done so (e.g. "My_Build").

Inside this folder you should place the i386 and $OEM$ folders from the "RIS_Install" folder on the machine hosting RISult.

I suggest that you have a read on Microsoft's site concerning RIS and RISETUP if you're unfamiliar with them, as there's a fair amount to learn outside of RISult.

Good luck,

Andy

Thought as much! Thanks

To my other problem please - After I connect to the server and all files are copied to the machine I am building and just before installation of WinXP I get this message;

C:\D\WatchDriverSigningPolicy.exe

Windows cannot find 'C:\D:\WatchDriverSigningPolicy.exe'. Make
sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search
for a file, click the start button, and then click search.

After which installation of WINXP starts and completes, but does not install any device drivers.

Cheers

Hope you can help

Hi,

Could you please post the *exact* procedure you went through to produce your build?

It seems to me that something else has occured other than a vanilla XP SP2 disk just running through RISult. The error you specify is something that no-one else has yet produced and I wonder what is different with your build.

Cheers,

Andy

Hi Fencer,

Just to mention I recieve the following messages at first login to Windows after setup is complete;

C:\D\BTS\_BPs_Finish.cmd

Windows cannot find 'C:\D\BTS\_BPs_Finish.cmd'. Make
sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search
for a file, click the start button, and then click search.


C:\TEMP\BTS_DPs_cleanup.cmd

Windows cannot find 'C:\TEMP\BTS_DPs_cleanup.cmd'. Make
sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search
for a file, click the start button, and then click search.

C:\WINDOWS\Cleanup.cmd

Windows cannot find 'C:\WINDOWS\Cleanup.cmd'. Make
sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search
for a file, click the start button, and then click search.

Just so I'm clear, you would like to know how I build the RISult image?

Cheers for the help!

Hi,

Could you have a look at your completed build and let me know whether the files mentioned in the error messages, along with the "C:\D" folder exist? If not then the messages can be safely ignored.

The reason they appear if because a run once log on script is executing, making sure that these files have been deleted. Occasionally Bashrat's scripts, which should handle this, fail to clean those files properly and so I added a further script to make sure they definately get removed.

If all your systems are having these messages and the files are indeed deleted, then feel free to delete the last "command =" line under the "[GUIRunOnce]" section of your SIF file, before running the RIS build, as this will stop the script executing.

With regard to my earlier question and your previous error, yes, could you please state exactly how you built your RIS image (nlite, any manual file edits, etc.) as you should definately get your drivers installed.

Cheers,

Andy

For the success of the image I have not changed any thing that isnít part of RISult for obvious reasons. The RyanVM part of the integration is fine and shows on a finished machine, but no look with the BTS's driver packs.
