    Si, why do I have to enable Hibernate which I have not before on this test machine? Taking away such a modern feature by default is a definite minus.
    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?

    ;no hiberfile

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

    [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

    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.
