Script updated to version 1.4.0.6 of OfflineSysPrep.

Changes to OfflineSysPrep:
Corrected HAL ACPIAPIC_UP error where halacpi.dll was named hal.dll instead of halaacpi.dll being renamed hal.dll
Added HAL support for ACPIPIC
Added option of either OfflineSysPrep automatically determining HAL to set or manual setting
Removed HAL update option of refreshing HAL files only (this was just a personal option really) as this is taken care of in manual use

Regards,
Galapo.

Just noticed a minor problem on the GUI, so have updated the script with a new file. version numbering remains the same. If you downloaded the new version prior to this post, please do so again.

Galapo.

Script has been updated to version 1.4.0.7 of OfflineSysPrep.

Changes:
Added option to specify an OEM Drivers Path for Sysprep pnp, path will be recursively scanned for .inf driver files (note: path must be on the drive\partition which will be %SystemDrive% upon boot, so the path should be located on the drive\partition which is undergoing sysprepping
Context help addition reflecting the above

Script has been updated to version 1.5.0.1 of OfflineSysPrep.

Changes to OfflineSysPrep:
Includes support for upcoming xp sp3
More early checks for necessary files
sysprep can be specified to not run (eg in the event that just HAL detection or Advanced options are only desired)
Some HAL registry service entries are now created for respective devices
New 'Advanced' options:
- Delete 'WindowsUpdate.log'
- Delete driver '.pnf' files
- Delete 'MountedDevices' registry entries
- Delete unnecessary temporary and cached files
- Stop 'Intelppm' service if present
- Fix possible keyboard/mouse unresponsiveness during mini-setup
- Install standard IDE Mass Storage Device(s)
- Install only PE-detected non-IDE Mass Storage Device(s)
- Install all DriverPacks non-IDE Mass Storage Device(s)
- Complete OfflineSysPrep operations without running sysprep

Galapo.

Thanks for the new version - the changes/fixes mentioned on the log sound excellent! (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/thumbup.gif)


Maybe you'd consider posting a small tutorial to teach others how to use the OfflineSysPrep correctly and also give more informations of usage.

Yes, it has two main uses: 1) aiding in making a universal image; and 2) aiding in getting a windows xp/2003 image working on newer hardware (eg motherboard replacement).

Thanks!

Some details are here: http://www.911cd.net/forums//index.php?showtopic=19397

And some help is provided in the context help of the program.

But basically the program allows to run sysprep from PE. The only issue currently that you can neither have a [SysprepMassStorage] section nor specify 'BuildMassStorage=yes' in sysprep.inf when running from PE. devcon also has some problems under PE. However, with the move to using the DriverPacks mass storage drivers, hopefully this means more machines can be rendered bootable and achieve a successful first boot upon which a full pnp can then be performed.

If anyone has specific questions, I can hopefully address them as they arise. But basically OfflineSysPrep is a front-end for sysprep allowing sysprepping to be performed from PE, esp on a non-booting system since normally sysprep has to be run under the OS that is to be sysprepped (but this cannot be done if it is not booting because of a motherboard change, for example).

Galapo.

That's OK. As you'll see, the advantage of the WB version over the BartPE one is the WB scripting, ie the extraction of the DriverPacks files is accomplished by the script and not having to rely upon the user having already installed the BartPE plugin. Just have to point the script to the downloaded DriverPacks files...

Galapo.
