Default Cusotmize your Windows XP installation!

Ok, first of all, I will use xpcd as the directory example

1- go to www.nliteos.com and download Nlite

2. now that you now have this program installed, extract the XP cd in the directory. (I will use xpcd for mine)

HOW TO INTERGRATE WINDOWS XP SP2


Download the SP2 file Here
and drop it in the xpcd directory.
Next, rename the file for easier acess (I am using xpsp2)
Do the following
Code:
C:\xpcd\xpsp2 /integrate:C:\xpcd


Delete xpsp2 at the end.

Adding programs

In order to do this, I will use WMP10 and MSN Messenger 7. (you can add the rest later)

Create a directory called $OEM$\$1\applications


Next, add the following in the $1 directory:

applications.bat
clean.bat

ADDING APPLICATIONS.BAT

Add this in notepad.
Code:
 @echo off
  echo Installing Windows Media Player 10 ...
start /wait %systemdrive%\applications\mp10setup.exe /Q:A /R:N /C:"setup_wm.exe /DisallowSystemRestore /Q:A /R:N" 
echo.
echo Installing MSN Messenger 7 ...
start /wait %systemdrive%\applications\MsnMsgs.msi /QB
echo.


To add your other programs SILENTLY, go to this link and download
http://cdxperso.infoliens.com/dload....oad&file_id=24


ADDING TO CLEAN.BAT

Add the following:
Code:
 @echo off
    echo Deleting temporary files... 
    cmd /c rd /s /q %systemdrive%\applications\
    echo. 
    echo Done.


After this is done, create this thing:
Code:
 [Commands]
"applications.bat"
"clean.bat"

And saveit in the $1 directory as commands.txt
After this, create, in notepad a file called unattend.txt and insert this:

[Unattended]
OemFilesPath="..\$OEM$"

OemPreinstall=Yes

And then, save it. Afterwards, reopen it and, save it as winnt.sif and another copy called winnt32.sif. Put these two files under the i386 directory and leave unattend.txt in the main directory.

ADDING DRIVERS

Using nLite, slipstream your drivers by doing this:

Select insert and put any driver CD (motherboard, Printer, etc) and extract the drivers in your desktop. When this is all done, Press Insert and select the inf files so nLite will add them. When this is all done, save the copy, by pressing next.

LHUSER'S MOD

You know the jpg files we have in our background? Well, you can change them! All JP_ files that you can recognise can be modified. Let's take, for example, BLISS.JP_

Take whatever background you enjoy from any wallpapers you have and then, copy and paster t into your dektop. Rename it BLISS.JPG

In your i386 directory, delete the BLISS.JP_ and put your BLISS.JPG. Setup will take it.

At the end of setup, you can enjoy your wallpaper of choice! You can do it to any of them you can recognise as default background!

Default Re: Cusotmize your Windows XP installation!

so ... do you actually put the application .exe in the applications folder? in your case ... MP10Setup?
How does the USSF work? Seems like any applications I try with it tells me it is either a 2003 InstallShield or is an unknown installer.
Is there a standard code for the application.bat file for every application I want to add? For example, could I add Windows Office Suite 2003, Nero 6 ... etc.

In order to install these files like Nero 6-7, you will need to add

echo your program name
start /wait %systemdrive%\applications\Nero 6.exe /S
echo

where /S is silent. you NEED to have silent mode installation!

USSF is useless then
