  1. PowerPacker can create DVD & USB iso. It works on all NT5 variants (2000, XP, 2003) and DriverPacks. Info here: http://cpu.reboot.pro/viewforum.php?f=8&sid=26703b92d4f366feee06501524dfbefe
  2. I don't like it, but I support your decision. We're going to miss you brother. I sincerely wish that your luck and situation changes for the better in the new year. But I like that!
  3. To test it, I logged in as a normal user and opened a cmd window as admin and pasted the following. start "" /min /separate %comspec% /c shutdown /r /t 90 /c "Finished Phase 1, base install, the system will reboot in 90 seconds and start Phase 2 - RunOnce WU_Satisfy" As expected I got the warning message "Finished Phase1..." and the system rebooted on its own 90 seconds later. Can you get a screenshot of the message? (pause VM, screenshot).
  4. Try this: 1.) Click the below link and the button " Install Windows 8.1 Pro " and choose make USB or ISO file http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/upgrade-product-key-only 2.) Boot to USB and 'install full version' or 'upgrade' your choice (use a Windows 8.1 Pro Key) (if fails, prep the USB key using instructions from http://www.tinkertry.com/rufus-takes-5-minutes-to-create-a-uefi-bootable-usb-3-0-flash-drive-for-windows-8-1-installation/)
  5. The "planned/unplanned" reasons were there only for server OS since they will halt the shutdown/restart to ask for a reason. Consumer OS types don't ask. More info: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc732503.aspx I remember having a problem with shutdown before. This will open a new command window and run the 'shutdown' line from there. It'll also allow the first window to close gracefully while the shutdown is in progress. Try this instead: start "" /min /separate %comspec% /c shutdown /r /t 90 /c "Finished Phase 1, base install, the system will reboot in 90 seconds and start Pha

  7. You want the official DriverPacks tool...SAD (Stand-Alone Drivers) utility. http://forum.driverpacks.net/viewtopic.php?id=5336
  8. Install in VM both with all 12000+ drivers and without. Then check each "C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore" folder and report back the different folder sizes. You'll see what I'm talking about, and you may change your mind.
  9. Holy Crap that's a lot of drivers! :omg: I can't imagine what your DriverStore folder looks like. It must be HUGE! Typically, I only integrate critical chipset drivers and mass-storage drivers into the .wim files. Then I integrate all the drivers during post-install via our SAD (Stand-Alone Drivers Disc) utility via setupcomplete.cmd. SAD discussion thread (and download): http://forum.driverpacks.net/viewtopic.php?pid=53470#p53470 If you integrate too many drivers then your "C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore" folder will balloon out of control. I don't know if there's a hard-limit but I'm
  10. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=39306 I'm guessing that ADK 8.1 isn't final yet since its title says it's for "Windows 8.1 Preview". I'm having problems servicing WS2012r2 testing isos with it. The ADK toolset should be backwards compatible to service OS builds going back as far as Vista. It must be installed on Win7 or higher.
  11. You mean the current directory where the installer files are stored? Sure. Shouldn't be too much of a problem. Thanks for asking, you actually pointed out a minor bug in my code (fixed now). Here ya go: @ECHO off & setlocal EnableDelayedExpansionSET "O_LOGFILE=%systemdrive%\install.log":PROCESSORREM :: Detect OS bit-ness on running system. Assumes 64-bit unless 64-bit components do not exist. SET "ARCH=64" & SET "ARCHP=x64"IF /I NOT EXIST "%SystemRoot%\SysWOW64\cmd.exe" ( IF NOT DEFINED PROCESSOR_ARCHITEW6432 (SET "ARCH=32" & SET "ARCHP=x86")) ECHO>>"%O_LOGFILE%" 2>
  12. Nice link. :doh: Here you go. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5201 Updates: http://www.microsoft.com/security/portal/definitions/adl.aspx
  13. As a test (Win7 VM), I installed the original .net 4.5 installer (from here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30653 ). Then after a restart, checked Windows Update and only got a list of 9 updates to install: KB2737083 KB2742613 KB2750147 KB2789648 KB2804582 KB2805221 KB2805226 KB2833957 KB2840642 This differs quite a bit from the list of updates you include in your repack. In fact, KB2519265 doesn't have any M$ page associated with it and isn't available from anywhere other than McRip's archives.
  14. You can try my batch script which will rebuild your source into a dual BIOS/UEFI .iso file. Change the variables to suit your needs. @ECHO offsetlocal EnableDelayedExpansionREM :: Set path to source directorySET "src=%cd%\src"REM :: Set custom name for ISOSET "ISOX=Win7-64":OSCDIMG-checkREM :: Detects the presence of oscdimg for .iso creation function. Critical check, will exit utility IF NOT found.IF /I EXIST "%ProgramFiles%\Windows AIK\Tools\%PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE%\oscdimg.exe" (SET "OSCD=%ProgramFiles%\Windows AIK\Tools\%PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE%\oscdimg.exe") ELSE (ECHO ** %time%- OSCDIM
