    customsettings.ini

    the other wds prob i have is i want to get rid of some stuff on the windows deployment wizard at the start of the process, certainly timezone and keyboard and domain. i've worked out how to mount the wim image using imagex and from what i can gather custom settings ought to be in a customsettings.ini but it doesnt exist in the wim image. should i just create one?, where do I put it?

    (wds on server 2003 deploying xp pro)


    nevermind we found it

    I also discovered the first 2 screens of the wd wizard are in the bootstrap.ini, however when you update that you have to do a deployment pointupdate (NOT update(files)) in the deployment workbench and move the resutlant updated wim image to where its deployed from.

    reference for all the possible settings in customsettings.ini is here:
    Property Reference

    you can just update customsettings.ini without any updates.

    bootstrap.ini

    [Settings]
    Priority=Default

    [Default]
    DeployRoot=\\SERVER4\Distribution$
    SkipBDDWelcome=YES
    UserDomain=ACADEMIC
    UserID=*****
    UserPassword=****
    KeyboardLocale=0809:00000809
    customsettings.ini

    [Settings]
    Priority=Default
    Properties=MyCustomProperty

    [Default]
    OSInstall=Y

    UserDataLocation=NONE
    SkipAppsOnUpgrade=NO
    SkipCapture=YES
    SkipAdminPassword=YES
    SkipProductKey=YES
    SkipBDDWelcome=YES

    ;added bits that might not work

    UILanguage=en-GB
    UserLocale=en-GB
    KeyboardLocale=0809:00000809

    ;Added bits that work
    SkipTimeZone=YES
    TimeZone=085
    TimeZoneName=Greenwich Mean Time

    DomainAdmin=*****
    DomainAdminDomain=Academic
    DomainAdminPassword=*****

    SkipDomainMembership=YES
    JoinDomain=ACADEMIC

    SkipUserData=YES
    thought i'd post this up as an example of UK settings, as most examples on the net are US settings. nb: as long as the settings are present in the wizard, skip just makes pages not show.
