Thanks for all of the effort you've put into this SIW2.

Some people would say, "Why do I always have to disable Hibernate?"

I never use it on my desktop PC, so I disable it, otherwise it's just wasting 8GB of HDD space.
If someone has a small SSD that is a lot of space (all of my installed programs use < 8GB).

I assume the various option/setting choices are because SIW2 built the program to suit the way he builds his machines.

That is the standard dilemma when something (like Windows) has lots of option/settings.
Personally I hate the default Windows setting, "Hide extensions for known file types"

Something like this tool would be great for XP, since it is going to lose support soon.

@ Greg,

You can adjust the reg files in the bin folder

look in bin\sys.reg Comment out with ;

or make changes as you wish. Like below


Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_System\ControlSet001\Control\CrashControl]
"AutoReboot"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_System\ControlSet001\Control\Power]
"HiberFileSizePerfect"=dword:00000000
"HibernateEnabled"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_System\ControlSet001\Control\SafeBoot\Minimal\MSIServer]
@="Service"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_System\ControlSet001\Control\SafeBoot\Network\MSIServer]
@="Service"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_System\ControlSet002\Control\CrashControl]
"AutoReboot"=dword:00000000

; [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_System\ControlSet002\Control\Power]
; "HiberFileSizePerfect"=dword:00000000
; "HibernateEnabled"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_System\ControlSet002\Control\SafeBoot\Minimal\MSIServer]
@="Service"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_System\ControlSet002\Control\SafeBoot\Network\MSIServer]
@="Service"

Do you know the kb number for those 3 updates?

Thanks Lehnerus - hope it is useful to you.

I don't know anything about XP - so I can't be much help there. Sorry.

I won't be able to use it, unless I download an install disc with SP1 included.

I haven't been able to create a working W7 SP1 install iso using RT Se7en Lite.
I might play around with it (if I get time) and see if I can work out what went wrong.

How many updates will W7 have by 2020?

It is very easy to d/l an sp1 iso. No point in mucking about with rt7lite.

The current update situation is not bad. Abot 330mb for x64 and 200mb ish for 32 bit.

That is a lot less than w8 has already.

If I could get RT Se7en Lite to work, I could set up the defaults the way I like:
  • Turn off that stupid "Hide extensions for known file types"
  • Set my Windows Explorer templates
  • etc.

You can do that with my updater.

It already includes those settings in the .reg files which are added during updates.

Have a look in the BIN folder. There are 4 reg files.

You can put your favourite entries in there.

Some of them are already in , for example:

In ADM.REG ( also in DEF.REG, those are the user hive entries ) already contain :

Code:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_Admin\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]

"AlwaysShowMenus"=dword:00000001
"Hidden"=dword:00000001
"HideFileExt"=dword:00000000
"ShowSuperHidden"=dword:00000001
"SuperHidden"=dword:00000001

;start menu HIDE=0 SHOW AS LINK=1 SHOW AS MENU=2 , SOME EXAMPLES

"Start_ShowControlPanel"=dword:00000001
"Start_ShowHelp"=dword:00000000
"Start_ShowMyComputer"=dword:00000002
SYS.REG contains for example :


Code:
; no autoreboot on bsod

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_System\ControlSet001\Control\CrashControl]
"AutoReboot"=dword:00000000

;no hiberfile

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_System\ControlSet001\Control\Power]
"HiberFileSizePerfect"=dword:00000000
"HibernateEnabled"=dword:00000000

 ; same entries for controlset002

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_System\ControlSet002\Control\CrashControl]
"AutoReboot"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_System\ControlSet002\Control\Power]
"HiberFileSizePerfect"=dword:00000000
"HibernateEnabled"=dword:00000000

So to re-enable Hibernate as default I only need to change these 3 values to 1? How do I mount the image to do this?

If you want to change the settings for next time, just Change SYS.REG it is in the BIN folder.

You can comment out the entries by putting a semi colon in front, like this. That is all, nothing else needed

;[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_System\ControlSet001\Control\Power]

;"HiberFileSizePerfect"=dword:00000000
; "HibernateEnabled"=dword:00000000


;[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WIM_System\ControlSet002\Control\Power]
; "HiberFileSizePerfect"=dword:00000000
; "HibernateEnabled"=dword:00000000

If you want to change an install.wim you have already updated, it is easy.

Make a mount folder e.g. c:\MOUNT

Mount the install.wim ( Gimagex is easy to use -select the image number you want change before mounting ).

gimagex.zip

Open regedit, clikc FILE>LOAD HIVE, browse to MOUNT\Windows\System32\Config\SYSTEM, give it a name ( I call it WIM_System ), then make any changes, unmount the hive.

When you have done that, tick the "Commit Changes" box and unmount the wim image.
