DaveXP,

Just ran across your method for creating an unattended CD. I have an OEM version of Pro with SP1 included. DO I still need the SP1a and rollup incorporated...and where can I get the SP2 (if any) updates. A while back I created an unattended HOME CD and it worked great. Since then I have upgraded several times and wanted to try something a little more challenging. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

first off, this is a very old post.

second, it's also refered to as RunOnceEX.

second, you don't HAVE to add the hotfixes, you can if you want. The easiest way to do this is with XPCreate. Check it's forum. I don't know if it works with an OEM version of the disk though. If it doesn't, use svcpack.inf.

OKay i have followed the first part of these instructions on how to do this....(w2k btw)

I created the Setup.reg, and all the batch files, basically i copied everything that was on the first part of this post.

It will not run on first restart, nor will it grab the files i want to set up, i have to click the install.cmd manually in the c:\install file after windows setup, then reboot, but then i only see the last two things happening..basically the cleanup.. it does not install the adobe, abobe update, and mcafee.

Here is my setup.reg

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx]
"Title"="Installing Applications"


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx\zz110]
"1"="C:\\Install\\Acrobat\\AdbeRdr60_enu_full.exe -p /s /v/qn"
"@="Acrobat Reader 6"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx\zz120]
"1"="C:\\Install\\Acrobat\\AAcro-Reader_6.0.2_Update.exe /s /v/qb"
"@="Acrobat Reader 6 Update to 6.02"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx\zz130]
"1"="C:\\Install\\Virus\\win2k.msi /qn"
"@="Mcafee Virus Scanner"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx\zz140]
"1"="C:\\Install\\Remove2.cmd"
@="Removing Setup Files & Restarting the Computer"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx\zz150]
"1"="regedit.exe /s C:\\Install\\regtweaks.reg"
@="Registry Tweaks"

Here is my cmdlines.txt

[COMMANDS]
".\install.cmd"
".\user.cmd"

And my install.cmd is here

CLS
@echo off
ECHO.
ECHO Adding Windows Update Method
REGEDIT /S %systemdrive%\install\Setup.reg
ECHO.

Any help is apprecaited...

that's pretty much the same thing but allows for variables.

But

is install.cmd in C:\install or in %CD%\$OEM$ ? (%CD% being where ever your installing from)

Do you have OEMPreInstall in your Winnt.sif, and if you don't have one of those, then you should copy your programs over manually.
