  1. i'm trying to intergrate nvidia quadro 550 and 570 x86 drivers into an install.wim file.


    I got the cabs via windows update catalog and have extracted the cabs into 2 folders one for 550 other for 570



    when i go to add them i get the error 30 saying it can't find the files. I've tried expanding the dl_ and sy_ files and all the exe packed files but still no luck. has anyone else ran into this problem if so how did you fix it.


    I'd like to say away from driverpacks.net files as these are more up to date from windows update catalog.

  2. grab the universal drivers: http://h20565.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/psi/swdHome/?sp4ts.oid=18326&spf_p.tpst=swdMain&spf_p.prp_swdMain=wsrp-navigationalState%3DswEnvOID%253D4158%257CswLang%253D%257Caction%253DlistDriver&javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.endCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken#Driver- Universal Print Driver


    and you can install it via command line






    just add the drivers you extract to a folder make a bat file to run the commands and (i've used) winrar sfx to compress and make an exe that runs the bat file on the pc.


    but the printer i use this for is a networked laserjet 4200 on a jetdirect so I had to create the ports and such.


    heres my script.

    cscript %WINDIR%\System32\Printing_Admin_Scripts\en-US\Prnport.vbs -a -r IP_192.168.6.61 -h -o raw -n 9100rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /ia /m "HP Universal Printing PCL 6" /F "M:\Printer\upd\hpcu170c.inf"rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /if /b "Computer Lab Printer" /F "M:\Printer\upd\hpcu170c.inf" /r "IP_192.168.6.61" /m "HP Universal Printing PCL 6"regedit /s M:\Printer\disableprinternote.reg --this one disables hp print popup
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Printers\Computer Lab Printer\PrinterDriverData]"SSNPDriverUISetting"=dword:00000000this is the code to disable the popup

    kinda long and unorganized but hopefully this helps ya. 

  3. yea, oct can pass that step, hince its related to activation.


    it will also allow you to choose what gets installed, shortcuts, outlook profiles, etc etc.


    only real issue I've ran into is that for AIO setups you still have to select what product your installing (office/visio/project) as I'm still looking for a switch to fix that one.


    Just a side note for updates on office 2013 my folder is 1.55 gigs after downloading from WHDownloader and it adds a TON of time to install when in the updates folder. I've found it faster to install the updates after office is installed using my own batch installer.

  4. are you targeting volume or retail?


    with volume you open oct with the command line setup.exe /admin and you create a .msp file with keys(kms/mak) and other settings and then run that file by setup.exe /adminfile="path\filename.msp"


    for retail i'm sure you can use the same thing (not 100%) and due the setup and have a script to activate with a key the user enters.


    google search for activate office 2010/13 by command line. you'll find the command lines to due this.

  5. the one thing I've noticed with collecting silent install switches in a forum is they get to be to many, couldn't you create a standalone program that lets people enter the switch and save it to a database hosted somewhere and just have the toolkit check against the database when a user adds an exe to see if there's a match (using crc/sha/md5 checksums/ver number) and auto load the switches, if no match, then ask to enter a switch if you know one and add it to the database.



    just a thought.

  6. using v1 of the unattended creator if i enter a mak key i get an error and i'm unable to install windows. the workaround is that i delete the key from the xml in the winpe setup part and leave it in the specialize part.


    I'm wondering if adding a check box that you can check for mak keys to skip adding the key to the winpe part in v2.



    here is a link that shows the issue in greater detail.


    edit: opps saw the rules too late. if you want close it and i'll reopen.
  7. i don't say much but thanks for all the fish kel!


    things will get better, I've been in a tough spot for the past year myself it sucks but i've found that group councils help more than one might think. its sad that your support system (your wife) passed, I remember reading that thread.


    anywho, may you find what you need to carry on!
