If you place $oem$\$1 in the root of the install dvd everytheng inside $1 is copied to the root of
the system partition same as in XP. Place a folder called 'install"
with your applications and other commands inside $1 along with install.cmd.
The only cach is it won't work unless you select the option to "use configuration set" from WSIM.

Just to let you Know if you have WSIM open, put the share folders in the root of the DVD before selecting "use confitguration set" or it will error.

Has anyone here successfully implemented the instructions for integrating drivers into their image? I can't seem to get it to work. I always get an error that Vista cannot locate the boot-critical drivers. I did manage to get the basic answer file to work though.

Ok, I found the new version of BDD 2007. Microsoft has cleverly renamed the tool kit to MDT. It can be found here for those looking.

because the Guide instructs so!!!!

We insert a second Synchronous Command to Pass 4 specialize:
%WINDIR%\system32\sysprep\sysprep.exe /quiet /audit

EXPLANATION:

This command will boot system to audit modes, where the applications will be installed.

Here is the truth about sysprep: it's really meant for system builders who want to clone the custem system image for rapid deploy to many computers. Also it is mostly to prerpare a computer with a preinstalled os that the custumer does not have to install but does have to answer oobe questions at first log on.

So, if you arn't preparing the computer for a custumer or planing to clone the system image you would have no need for sysprep.

Therefore the best and easyest way is forgetv about sysprep and add you programs at pass 7 first log on commands.

I'm asking out of curiosity (no malice intended), but what makes you think that this guide's section on installing applications would be valid for WinVista's gold release but not for Vista SP1 ?

Working Environment Check:

Environment variables are checked...


All necessary environment variables are setted.


Checking existnece of directories...

The directory "F:\VistaWork" does exist.
The directory "F:\VistaWork\DVD" does exist.
The directory "F:\VistaWork\Distribution" does exist.
The directory "F:\VistaWork\Logs" does exist.
The directory "F:\VistaWork\Mount" does exist.
The directory "F:\VistaWork\wim" does exist.
The directory "F:\VistaWork\Updates" does exist.
The directory "F:\VistaWork\Sandbox" does exist.
The directory "C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\Servicing" does exist.
The directory "C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools" does NOT exist!
The directory "C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\x86" does exist.

1 directories do NOT exist. So the procedure
can'b be continued.

Please check, if all necessary directories are created
properly on your system!

You will find more informations about that inside Vista guide
in "Preparation\ Prepare directories".

When I attempt to install vista from DVD it displays an error just after sysprep finishes installing my apps. It says that it has something to do with interactive login. Then it shuts down my machine. Then I turn my machine back on and it continues to install Vista. I thought maybe you could give me some idea what I am doing wrong or missing or somethin....
