Do you use an empty HD?

What are you doing during Disc Configuration exactly?

How many HDs you've inside your system? Could you please post your actual Autounattend.xml, too? Without Product Key certainly.

Regards,

Martin

Hello!

I've updated the offline_update.cmd of VU Batch Modules. It was failing on English based OS and may be on other languages, too.

I've changed it, that it will now working for English OS by default but you may need to adjust it for other languages.

Check out here inside offline_update.cmd to find out more about.

Martin

Thank you very much for the feedback guys!

I will work over the layout than during week and will switch from table based layout to full CSS layout. That should make it faster.

Martin

Well... the background image is an image with 2 pix only and will be repeated. But I will have a look at it.

Thanks,

Martin

EDIT:

I think, I've fixed it. Changed the file format from png to gif. Did not know, that IE still has problems to "work" with png files. Seems to work faster now.

Hello shampoo!

First of all the InputLocale Value for Dutch should look like this, but this has nothing to do with you Problem:

<InputLocale>0413:00000413</InputLocale>

Your problem is caused by the following section and it's not looking like it supposed to:

<ImageInstall>
<OSImage>
<InstallFrom>
<MetaData wcm:action="add">
<Value>Windows Vista Ultimate</Value>
<Key>Windows Vista Business</Key>
</MetaData>
<Path>D:\VISTADVD\sources\install.wim</Path>
<MetaData wcm:action="add">
<Value>Windows Home Premium</Value>
<Key>1</Key>
</MetaData>
</InstallFrom>
<InstallToAvailablePartition>false</InstallToAvailablePartition>
<WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI>
</OSImage>
</ImageInstall>

1. Problem:

You can't use two MetaData Properties, just ONE per xml at the same time!

2. Problem:

Key and Value setting do not correspond the wright way in your xml!

The ImageInstall section should look like this if you want to install ULTIMATE:

<ImageInstall>
<OSImage>
<InstallFrom>
<Path>install.wim</Path>
<MetaData wcm:action="add">
<Key>/IMAGE/NAME</Key>
<Value>Windows Vista ULTIMATE</Value>
</MetaData>
</InstallFrom>
<InstallToAvailablePartition>false</InstallToAvailablePartition>
<WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI>
</OSImage>
</ImageInstall>

OR it should look like this for BUSINESS:

<ImageInstall>
<OSImage>
<InstallFrom>
<Path>install.wim</Path>
<MetaData wcm:action="add">
<Key>/IMAGE/NAME</Key>
<Value>Windows Vista BUSINESS</Value>
</MetaData>
</InstallFrom>
<InstallToAvailablePartition>false</InstallToAvailablePartition>
<WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI>
</OSImage>
</ImageInstall>

OR it should look like this for HOMEPREMIUM:

<ImageInstall>
<OSImage>
<InstallFrom>
<Path>install.wim</Path>
<MetaData wcm:action="add">
<Key>/IMAGE/NAME</Key>
<Value>Windows Vista HOMEPREMIUM</Value>
</MetaData>
</InstallFrom>
<InstallToAvailablePartition>false</InstallToAvailablePartition>
<WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI>
</OSImage>
</ImageInstall>

After choosing one of these alternates, depending on the Product Key you have, it should work!

Regards,

Martin

...

That is normal. It's taking longer on my test system, but that's an old one.

...

sysprep doesnt pop up, do i need change something in xml?

...

Sysprep is located in %Windir%\system32\sysprep. If you want to generalize the system for example, use the following command (Insert \ Synchronous Command):

%WINDIR%\system32\sysprep\sysprep.exe /generalize /quiet /oobe /reboot

If you need a company logo during oobe, check out here on Microsoft.

Guide Update:

I've worked over Applications, Regtweaks and Copy Profile section of the guide. Everything is in one xml now.

Applications are installed in auditMode now, cause

- it provides a status window for application install (oobeSystem doesn't)

- it supports reboots between installs

Note:

In audit mode you need to call the installer using cmd /c. Otherwise it will not recognice the %AppsRoot% variable.

Martin

Thanks Firegeier , great guide ;)

Another question, is it possible to get feedback if something goes wrong? Because somehow my application installs don't get installed at all, and i can't know for sure what went wrong.

Hello Phorze!

AFAIK for the moment, there is no special log for application installs! But if I have probelms with my unattend I start with setupact.log and setuperr.log located inside %Windir%\Panther\Unattend GC.

In most cases I've got a hint there why something went wrong.

Martin

Somehow i just can't get it to work, i have slimmed down Autounattend to find the problem but no avail.

Notes:

the Administrator account is made , but on oobe i get the standard dialog to make an account. If i use administrator as accountname, it gives an error saying the name is allready taken. When i pick user named "test" and log in, there is no other account than test , and test is the administrator account (what happened to "administrator"? :P)

None of the applications are installed, no errors during setup.

According to the SET command in cmd, no APPSROOT var is set.

By the looks of it just skipped the whole audit section.

All tests are done in VMware 5.3

Hello Phorze!

Problem 1: Applications are not installed

I've just recognized that I haven't add the AutoLogon in auditSystem mode to the guide. So this was my mistake. Sorry for that. I've updated it now. So please check for the change:

You need to add Windows-Shell-Setup \ AutoLogon component to auditSystem pass. Than use Administrator as Name and set LogonCount to 5 or may be more if you need some reboots.

Problem 2: Prompted to create user account

You don't have the following part from basic Autounattend.xml inside your xml:

			<OOBE>
<HideEULAPage>true</HideEULAPage>
<NetworkLocation>Home</NetworkLocation>
<ProtectYourPC>2</ProtectYourPC>
<SkipMachineOOBE>true</SkipMachineOOBE>
<SkipUserOOBE>true</SkipUserOOBE>
</OOBE>

Note:

It's not recommended to use <SkipMachineOOBE> set to true, so please check out the Copy Profile section, if you want to create your own accounts and find out how to by pass welcome screen without using <SkipMachineOOBE>.

Regards,

Martin
