  1. Hi,


    Virtual PC: yes, not auto-install.


    do you have it as one of you last positions on the list to install?

    If i install virtual pc before trying to install office 2007, office 2007 fails.

    Install only possible after a reboot.


    I figured this behaviour out today, and it was the last of my suspects, what else... :D


    Do i need any switch for virtual pc to install silently while no automatic install?

  2. Hi,


    from my experiences from the last 3-4 week i had problem with integration of the following updates and actually i install them as sfx:






    IE9 Language Pack (afaik was integrated but ie was still english not german)

    Microsoft Malicious Software Removal

    " Definitions

    Dot.Net 4.5 Framework (using Reapers)

    Virtual PC (KB958559-x64-RefreshPkg)



    Who has successfully integrated one or more of these updates and with what version oft wtk?

  3. Hi,


    i never really understood why to install LDR.

    windowsupdate only offers GDR so 99% of the people don't need LDR.


    I started a new image because i kicked the integration of LDR


    My old Image took around 6 hours with ~400 updates, its hardly depending

    on your computers power and storage speed.

  4. Hi,


    i've started with the test14 then i used since today test 15.

    I have it working ;)


    My setupcomplete.cmd look like:


    net use x: \\ip\share /user:user pass


    Thats all, so the install medium can be without the wintoolkit_apps folder, then with setupcomplete it mounts a share where is a complete windows 7 install files including wintoolkit_apps folder, so installer finds the folder on the network share.

  5. Hi,


    i temporarily disabled the following 3 automatic installs:


    dot net framework 4.5 installer (latest) reaper

    Windows6.1-KB958559-x64-RefreshPkg (Virtual PC)



    All of them normally install before Office 2007, lets think... reapers installers have allways worked without a problem,

    i dont see any reason why virtual pc should block office from install.


    Afai remember silverlight is a single install update over windows update, but i dont know if it request a reboot?


    Should i start with only disabling silverlight?




    IT's not Silverlight




    IT's not Reapears Dot net framework 4.5


    i hope its virtual pc then if not iam really confused ;)

    I will report later



    Greetz X23



    Problem itselfs isn't solved but i know how to workaround it!






    one of the automatically updates must pretend office 2007 from installing,

    i get a error 1935and office 2007 rolls back.




    If i install office 2007 before i press the start button from installer, office installs

    fine so it must be one of the following:




    Any idea which?


    Afaik i updated dot net 4.5 to the latest reaper pakage, added the Exchange Certifikate (just a batch that triggers certmgr)

    Silverlight and the latest Malicious Software Removal...


    Office was always working with my latest tests before.

    No need of any boot media except network connection

    Easy Update of Installer changes

    No space boarder (no DL-DVD or big USB Stick needed)





    DHCP Server with Option 66 and 67 enabled and configured

    TFTP Server


    Microsoft Windows AIK

    Windows 7 Installation files



    Steps to procede:


    Setup DHCP Server

    Prepare the Base Directory for TFTP Server

    Prepare WinPE to Start Windows Setup

    Tell Windows Setup howto find Wintoolkit_Apps folder:



    Setup DHCP Server:


    For my case (Corporate) i have a running Microsoft DHCP Server (Windows Server 2003)

    Just enable the DHCP Options 66 and 67




    Option 66 is the Hostname or IP of the machine where TFTP Server is running on

    Option 67 is the Boot filename from TFTP Base Directory


    If you don't have a running DHCP Server you can use the buildin DHCP Server from TFTPD



    Prepare the Base Directory for TFTP Server:


    Create a Base directory called Boot or something wherever you want. (C:\Boot)

    Create a subdirectory called images (C:\Boot\images)

    Create a subdirectory called pxelinux.cfg (C:\Boot\pxelinux.cfg <-- is a directory!)

    Create a file without extension called default in the pxelinux.cfg folder (C:\Boot\pxelinux.cfg\default <-- is a filename)


    Extract the syslinux archive, find and copy the following files to your base directory:



    Open the default file and paste:


    Attention, this is a fully paste from my default file, for a start you can delete the most to learn how it works.

    Place your images in the images folder



    Prepare WinPE to Start Windows Setup:


    Install Windows AIK

    Create a WinPE Folder (You need to change the paths to your needs):

    "C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\copype.cmd" amd64 e:\WinPE_x64

    Mount WinPE Folder:

    "C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\amd64\Servicing\Dism.exe" /Mount-Wim /WimFile:e:\WinPE_x64\winpe.wim /Index:1 /MountDir:e:\WinPE_x64\mount

    Optionally integrate drivers into pe:

    "C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\amd64\Servicing\Dism.exe" /Image:e:\WinPE_x64\mount /Add-Driver /Driver:e:\WinPE_x64\Drivers /Recurse /forceunsigned

    I integrated a LAN Driver pakage so it doesnt get problems when trying to mount a network share, that is needed because i install it over net share.


    Now we customize the winpe:


    Open the mount folder and goto Windows\System32 and open the startnet.cmd add the following line:


    Create setup.cmd in Windows\System32 and paste the following (You need to change IP, User, Pass, Paths):

    @echo offnet use i: \\\System /USER:domain\user password"i:\Windows 7 Professional x64\setup.exe" /unattend:"i:\Windows 7 Professional x64\Autounattend.xml"

    This will mount the install sources and runs the setup.


    Unmount the WinPE:

    "C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\amd64\Servicing\Dism.exe" /Unmount-Wim /MountDir:e:\WinPE_x64\mount /Commit

    Create the ISO:

    copy e:\WinPE_x642\winpe.wim e:\WinPE_x64\ISO\sources\boot.wim"C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\amd64\oscdimg.exe" -n -be:\WinPE_x64\etfsboot.com e:\WinPE_x64\ISO e:\WinPE_x64\WinPE_x64.iso

    Copy the iso to your Base\Images directory.



    Tell Windows Setup howto find Wintoolkit_Apps folder:


    Please use the (sources\$oem$\$$\Setup\scripts\setupcomplete.cmd) and add the following

    (You need to change things to suite to your needs):

    @echo offnet use i: \\\Wintoolkit /USER:domain\user pass 





    I have big problems to explain things more detailed because of missing english vocabular and so on :)

  8. Hi,


    i have Navision working now, i dont use their full setup anymore.

    I just keep the CSideClient (Microsoft Dynamics NAV Classic.msi) folder and from installers

    i keep (ClassicClient.Local.De.msi) and (Documentation.Local.DE.msi)


    To have a thin navision installer you can delete the demo db:


    CommonAppData\Microsoft\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\60\Database\database.fbk

    CommonAppData\Microsoft\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\60\Database\database.fdb


    Create empty dummie files because setup will stop if they dont exists.

    I use the following batch to install:

    @echo offmsiexec.exe /i "%cd%\Microsoft Dynamics NAV Classic.msi" /qn /norestart SETUPTYPE=MINIMALmsiexec.exe /i "%cd%\ClassicClient.Local.De.msi" /qn /norestartmsiexec.exe /i "%cd%\Documentation.Local.DE.msi" /qn /norestart

    Same procedure for the RTC Client (a demo database isn't existing here)


    ACT 13 is still not working who can help?

  9. Hi,


    I meant create unalocated space in the Hard disk or SSD of the PC not in the usb drive,


    this is nothing else then another dirty workaround.

    I also thougth you ment the usb stick, if this will be a one time change always creating

    a unallocated space partition for every system gonna be installed is more work then pulling the stick refreshing, put it in refresh again and go on.

  10. Hi,


    guys please can someone assist with navision 2009 i can also give you the needed files for testing.

    I tried it different ways and i cant get managed to install this stupid app silently.


    I also tried installing navision directly over its msis, if i start the msi by hand i can install everything

    if i try /passive /qn /quiet or something it doesnt install... navision sucks :)


    Please help someone.

  11. Hi,


    Need you ask?     :please:


    yes because it's not finished after 5 minutes... i don't want to do things that are maybe useless

    I will make that howto but don't slap me if that isn't finished that weekend.


    Only in short:


    - You need to reconfigure your DHCP Server

    - You need a TFTP Server

    - You need WinPE

    - You need to prepare WinPE


    and so and so on :)




    Where should i place this howto ? Which subforum

  12. Hi,


    for some kind of unknown reason its working know.


    What i do:


    Having a windows pe that is booted by pxe

    the booted windows pe has most lan drivers included so it can mount a network share with

    the windows installation files.


    I use setupcomplete.cmd to mount the same network share again before installer starts so it can

    find the apps folder.


    Wow its very impressive to install windows 7 completely over network.



    Greetz X23

  13. Hi,


    iam starting my windows setup over a winpe that is booted over network (pxe).

    My Problem is when Installer executes there is no more access to the network share where the windows setup and the apps folder is so installer cannot find anything to install.


    Afaik installer search in all local drives for a apps folder but it seems not i mounted a net share to i: in this share there is the complete win 7 install sources and the apps folder.

    Also installer aksked me for the app folder location so i pointed it there (direct appfolder) not the win7 folder and it didnt found anything to install.
