Vista unattended Guide A little Guide for you
Posted 16 May 2007 - 04:11 PM
The introduction explains, what BDD 2007 is. If you don't have it installed now, don't install it. It's not necessary to get the updates part to work.
But you're right the guide is missing a little step here. If you don't have an Distribution Share folder already, you need to choose Create Distribution Share... from Tools menu in WSIM. And there you can choose any folder.

I am far from being a tech, just enjoy the learning curve involved. So go easy me,

Actually the result was a return to the command prompt, with no action being accomplished. Running the ECHO %errorlevel% showed the number 3.

If it installs correctly. I hear virtual PC calling now.
Just needed to bang my head on the desk top a few more times.
#1-My error seemed to be in one of two areas. I had an .exe file, actually two, in my updates folder (old style hotfixs) for some odd reason.
#2 I had to unmount from PETools and mount within WSIM. WSIM wanted to mount the image before doing the actual answer file. Once WSIM was finished, I remounted in PETools to finish up.
After changing those two items, the ECHO %errorlevel% returned a 0.
I am currently running XP Pro-SP2. Useing the latest Vista WAIK pack. I am not useing the batch files, yet. I only want to add current security updates and patchs to my DVD. Later I would like to add programs such as Java, and a few others.
EDIT: I also had to create a folder named Logs. After that, the log files created successfully in this folder.

The only important updates missing were
kb925902 Security update (now fixed)
kb890830 Malicious Software Removal Tool (exe, need to work on exe files)
kb915597 Windows Defender update (not publicly avaliable)
I am very pleased with the results, Thanks FireGeier, and to the rest of the MSFN folks.

I have the map info where my information is when the welcome screen comes,like offer etc etc
i took it from an Acer laptop and changed into the information of my company.
Can i put the ''info'' map to the Vista unattended cd so when i install, the info map goes directly into oobe?
is it possible or is there a simple other way?

I'm running Vista and i follow the guide to this page http://firegeier.unattended-sponsor.de/en/...ch_modules.html i run the mount_install_wim.cmd file.
Then i goto http://firegeier.una...wer_file_1.html to open the install.wim, but it says it's in use.
So i tries it without running the mount_install_wim.cmd file, i then get
I then get a blue screen dumping memory, i can't get passed this bit... anyone any ideas..?

i tried the dell version already activated and i tried a normal unactivated vista, i'm trying to create a vista version that installs apps like nero etc., the install.wim is off my windows vista disc.
I'm not sure what the blue scrren says exactly but it dumps the memory. I use the check for solutions when vista reboots but it don't find one..
hehe xp was alot easier to unattend...

Click on Advanced System Settings and on the Advanced tab click on Settings under Startup and Recovery.
Now disable the checkbox Automatically reboot.
Now you will be able to read the blue screen.

A problem has been detected and windows has been shutdown to prevent damage.
Disable or uninstall any Antivirus, disk defrag software, check Hard Drive configuration,
Run CHKDSK /f to check hard drive.
**** Stop Error (Some numbers here)
*** NTFS.SYS (Some numbers here)
Starting memory dump
etc blah dump
Ran CHKDSK and that reported no problems.
Here's what i got when i checked for solutions
You received this message because a device driver installed on your computer caused the Windows operating system to stop unexpectedly. This type of error is referred to as a "stop error." A stop error requires you to restart your computer.
Problem report summary
Windows stop error (a message appears on a blue screen with error code information)
What does this problem mean?
Windows has encountered a problem it cannot recover from and it needs to be restarted
A message appears on a blue screen with error code information (for example: 0x0000001E, KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED)
Additional steps for you to take

NTFS.SYS could mean that it's something with the file system, and I would guess it has something to do with the filter driver used to mount images... but not for sure...
If you've Antivirus Software installed on your Vista, please disable it and than try again.
