Recommended Posts

Just reinstalled my laptop with my USB-stick. I removed all the ATTRIB commands (so the apps folders wasn't a system folder). But, the silent installs weren't working..

I'm going to make a new installation with the alpha version of W7T. I'll keep you updated!

y, i also reported this earlier. Even after selecting Apps folder or USB root drive nothing happens. Also tried select apps folder on my HDD, still same.

But it works flawlessly in virtual box/WMware.

Hopefully the alpha build with error logging will find the issue :)

Can you please open your image with WIM Registry Editor, load 'Software', export HKLM\\WIM_Software\\W7T key and send me it please? :)

and also take a print screen of your dvd/usb root?

From which version? My 'problematic' version or the one made with the alpha version off W7T?

Glad you finally got it sorted (PM), unfortunately i can't publish what caused it without breaking the forum rules :P Lets just say something caused Windows to reboot before W7T had a chance to load.

One thing.

Not all 'silent installs' are completely silent.

For some exe files Windows is asking if I'm sure to open them. Is there something I can do about this?

EDIT:

At the end of the silent install progres, I get a popup 'Runonce is about the restart your computer' with a countdown. But it doesn't restart my computer!

I also just got that and confirm it doesn't reboot... the header states "aborting" which was alarming during the install

In my case there's another weird behaviour, or maybe others didn't noticed it. There's something wrong with the new RunOnce (Windows 7 Toolkit Installer 4.2.1).

Just before first logon, during installing switchless installers, it gets in a loop. As usual, I went away from the computer, expecting to find the desktop at my return. Insted, I got 10 (!) different windows of W7T, all stuck at the 7th installer out of 19 (Kel's Runtimes 1.4). So the first 6 switchless installers were installed 10 times on my pc. :(

It may be a conflict with Kel's installer, but since also other people is having a similar problem... myabe it's duplicable if other people won't interfere with the process. But please also check Kel's installer.

Who's naughty you or me? Now you have me wondering LOL

I know what that issue is, i did something silly, can't do anything now because I'm at work and don't finish until late :(

Theres only one reason it prompts to restart, naughty naughty :P

Just before first logon, during installing switchless installers, it gets in a loop.

It may be a conflict with Kel's Runtimes 1.4

This is happening again with build 1.4.0.9 - version 4.2.2 of Windows 7 Toolkit Installer. The loop happened right after Windows 7 Toolkit Installer arrived at the seventh switchless installer - Kel's Runtimes, and it started another instance. Only after I stopped the second instance the install process continued with the first instance, and finished all 19 silent installers. So, please check:

1. Kel's installer - maybe this is the cause;

2. What exactly is the conflict - maybe other switchless installers are built the same as Kel's, so it may happen again;

3. Please check those Silent Installers options in AIO - W7T Installer background and logo - I can confirm at least the W7T Installer logo change option it's not working. Or (better) remove those ''cosmetical/whim" options in AIO.

      This is a script to repack JRE (Java Runtimes) setups into a silent 7zip SFX installer.


      Beta version for Java 9/10:
      JAVA-Multi_Maker_4.0b4.zip
      MD5: 203c7e514414c932ff847d3d8dac5fa4
      SHA-1: 93fc856e026fc42298ebc8e76bba338f21c1704a
      Size: 800KB

      How to use:
      You have to download the Java 9/10 setup(s) from here (x64)  | mirror x64 | mirror x64 | mirror x86 .
      - Extract the archive in a work folder with no space in the path.
      - Copy the setup(s) in the "JRE_setups" folder
      - Launch "_JAVA_Multi_Maker.cmd".

      Download function may return when Java 9 will be on the official download page.

      Available switches:
      No switch (dafault) - Silent install without Web plugins. Remove any previous Java version(s).
      -ai   - Silent install with Web plugins. Remove any previous Java version(s).
      -ai1  - Silent install without Web plugins. Remove only previous Java 9 version(s).
      -ai2   - Silent install with Web plugins. Remove only previous Java 9 version(s).

      Tested on Windows 7 & 10 x64, everything works as intended.
      Please test and report how it works for you.


       ------------------------------------
       
      Current version (for Java 8u73 and newer) (could work on XP if you use a custom build of aria2)
      JAVA-Multi_Maker_3.5.zip
      MD5: 7716dddd8c576f0d002e6ddeb43d1ac6
      SHA-1: 495cf642bf73571bca97179e63ab28c88ca2f5f1
      Size: 3.79 MB
       
       How to use:
      - Extract the archive in a work folder with no space in the path.
      - Run the batch file.
      - Choose the version you want to use
      The script will download the newest JRE automatically. If there is a problem with the download (or if you don't have access to Internet), you can also put the desired version(s) in the script's folder, it will always use the greater version found in the folder.

      Notes:
      - To avoid errors, the SFX will uninstall any previous Java version(s) newer than JRE 6.0 Update 22 before installing the new one(s).
      nLite/RVMi Addons are no longer created
      - It's highly recommended to NOT install Java web plugins, they are plagued with many vulnerabilities, but using Java locally is rather safe.
      - You can use the uninstall tool for Java to remove (very) old versions.
       

      Available switches:
      GUI version:
      -ai   - Silent install with Web plugins
      -ai1 - Silent install without Web plugins
       
      noGUI version:
      no switch - Silent install without Web plugins
      -ai            - Silent install with Web plugins
       
       
       ------------------------------------

      Old version (for Java 8u20 up to 8u72) (works on XP)
      JAVA-Multi_Maker_3.0.zip
      MD5: d89eec93311acedd842c6378ed630734
      Size: 1.29 MB
       
       ------------------------------------


      Old version (for Java 6, 7 and 8 before 8u20)
      JAVA-Multi_Maker_1.3a.zip
      MD5: 8d592f99c2b25e2c4404203af0b4d082
      Size: 373 KB
      How to use:
      - Extract the archive in a work folder with no space in the path.
      - Download the x86 and/or x64 Offline setup of Java 6/7/8 and put it in the same folder.
      - Run the batch file.
      The maker will perform an admin install of Java and repack them inside a 7zip SFX.
       
      Notes:
      - The install is passive by default, use a switch if you want silent install.
      - To avoid errors, the SFX will uninstall any previous Java version(s) newer than JRE 6.0 Update 22 before installing the new one(s).
      - Update check and Java quick starter are disabled (JQS doesn't exist in x64 anyway).
      - It's highly recommended to NOT install Java web plugins, they are plagued with many vulnerabilities, but using Java locally is rather safe.
      - You can use the uninstall tool for Java to remove (very) old versions.
       
      Available switches:
      -ai   - Silent install with Web plugins
      -ai1 - Silent install without Web plugins

      Hello everybody,
      Today I will show you how to install Windows 7 on a PC without a CD/DVD/USB, directly onto the HDD, even without the installation wizard/setup ! [Fastest Method]
      Yesterday my new hard drive for my laptop arrived, and instead of cloning my existing disk, I decided to do a clean install of Windows 10. But I didnt have much time, cuz after installing windows 10, I had to copy my existing downloads, pictures, videos, install programs, etc. & I thought there must be some other way to easily install windows 10 without that installation wizard/setup. After some research, I made my own method, & installed it succesfully, faster than their setup wizard! Now I am gonna show you how to accomplish that. [This guide will work for Windows 8/8.1 also] Lets Begin!   
      Pre-Requisites
      Seperate Hard Drive with atleast 20GB space, with only 2 primary partitions [where you have to install Win8/8.1] [An empty/new hard drive is highly recommended] Working PC/laptop with Windows XP or above installed, with Internet access  Procedure:
      Firstly, download Windows 7 ISO & extract it to C:\win7 using some archive manager like 7zip/winrar, or Copy the Windows 7 CD contents to C:\win7. Now connect that separate hard drive to your PC (If you have extra hdd cage, then connect to it, else buy a SATA to USB hard disk enclosure like this one) Open a command prompt as administrator (Go to start menu > search cmd > Rightclick on the first search result & Run as administrator) Type: diskpart Now type: list disk It will show the disks connected to your PC. According to the size shown, you should be able to know which is your disk.  Type: select disk X  [Replace X with the disk number which you saw in the previous guide, in my case it was disk 1] Type the following one by one:  create partition primary size=350 format fs=ntfs unit=4096 label="System Reserved" quick active assign letter=P create partition primary size="Any size convenient for you, in MB" format fs=ntfs label="Windows 7" quick assign letter=Q exit Your partitions have been configured! Now, if you are in Windows 7 (or below), download DISM from here, open the file, when It will ask for extraction folder, change the location to: C:\dism
      Now in Windows Explorer, browse to c:\win7\sources (sources folder inside the folder where you copied/extracted setup files) & check whether you have install.esd or install.wim. Now you have to know the index number of the edition which want to install. Type the following without quotes: 
      cd c:\dism ## [DO NOT TYPE THIS] Skip the first line if you are running Windows 8/above. dism /get-wiminfo /wimfile:C:\win7\sources\install.wim ## This should output the index numbers of different windows 7 editions. ## Note down the index number of the edition which you require. Now, this is the most important step. All the windows files are gonna get copied to the partition. If you are in Windows 7 or below, Open command prompt as administrator & type the following: 
      cd c:\dism Dism /apply-image /imagefile:C:\win8\sources\install.esd /index:1 /ApplyDir:Q:\ ## [DO NOT TYPE THIS] You can replace /index:1 with the index number which we ## found out earlier. ## Also, if you have an insall.wim instead of install.exe in your \sources folder, ## Then replace install.esd with install.wim (in 2nd command). Now you have successfully extracted all the files for windows! Now, all you have to do is prepare the boot files in the System Reserved partition, so that Windows can be booted from the drive succesfully.
      Now you are gonna prepare the System Reserved partition for booting into Windows 7. Type the following in Administrator CMD Window:
      bcdboot Q:\Windows /l en-us /s P: /f ALL ## [DO NOT TYPE THIS] You can replace en-us with your locale, ## For eg. en-in, en-gb, en-ru etc. Everything is done! You are now ready to go! Now boot into the drive. If you did everything correctly & succesfully, then Windows will boot to the welcome screen. Done! Enjoy the manually installed Windows!   
       
      Hope this guide was helpful & easy to you. If you have doubt about something or you got any errors, or if windows doesnt boot after performing all the steps correctly, then feel free to post below.

Windows XP & Windows 8 users may (cuz I havent tested in them, but it works in 8.1 & 10) need to convert the install.esd file into an install.wim file (if some error shows up). Search in Google How to convert esd to wim
      Now you have successfully extracted all the files for windows! Now all you have to do is prepare the boot files in the System Reserved partition.
