Longhorn 4074 (i386) Re-pack

Post by maxtorix »

Every build (except 4093) of Longhorn before code resetting has two versions (quite different) of the files in self.
When I've working on the files, I saw there is one files in the i386 form, and others in WIM installation image, even when I separated them, they request a different serial number. How you can see from the screenshot start menu is different, in WIM version is just Windows logo on it, here is in an old XP-texted style.


Wiwi-maX / MAXtoriX proudly presents:

Repack of the Longhorn build 4074
~Created on February 27, 2012~


*** This is tweaked and optimazed re-pack, if you want just clean install - Delete $OEM$ folder from ISO - that is everything.

Reloaded Patch integrated (but billboards file remained the original)
-OS version is update to Service Pack 2 (SP2), because almost every new program has requirements for SP2 for XP, so now you can easy install software only with simple changing in XP compatibility mode.



Improvements:
*Registry fixes which was done by MAXtoriX and integrated in the OS, were made on the basics of guide for LH 4074 from Chris123NT
*Registries: Folder Fix, Explorer Fix, Wi-Fi Fix are hard-coded in the system.


*Windows Installer (MSI) 3.1.4001.5512 (Ripped from Windows FLP, and Hard-coded in OS)
*DWM Glass
*Sidebar is ON, and is fully workable
*Patched Winlogon.exe
*Fully Unattended installation (can be edited via WINNT.SIF)
*Timebomb was removed / pre-disarmed
*BIOS Date is free - you don't need to change the date for installing
*There is not any tracks from the watermark in the right corner; I don't remove the watermark, he simply was not present at all, not even at the first start)
*SATA/RAID drivers are included, (only (F6) txt mode versions from DrivePack MassStorage 12.01 from DriverPacks.net)
*Activation is still required, - you can activated with AntiWPA (this is not included)

Why do you put in so much branding? I'd much rather prefer a simple NFO to having some guy's name shoved in my face during Setup and when I go to log in.

Yay! Insane branding!
And, you completely broke Explorer.
You installed .NETFX 2.0, which is not compatible with Longhorn's .netfx 1.2, at least in that part.

Out of curiosity, why do you put branding on almost every element of these repacks that you can put your hands on? That login screen looks incredibly childish and unprofessional for that reason alone - it'd look much better if you left it as it was.

Stop focusing on the damn branding and actually focus on the software itself. It's not hard to de-brand it anyways. Sure it's annoying, but still... Also, it's not worthless if it has a bunch of fixes most BA users can't perform themselves.

Anyway, I might try later. I don't have VMware installed at this time, but when I get it installed, I will try this.
Inactive. I also don't have anything ROBLOX-related, anymore. Please don't ask.

People download Longhorn by Microsoft, not by Maxtorix. Technically, there is no justification on branding every little damn thing for a small, simple conversion and a quick nlite which the average Joe can do.

As always, thank you very much. Great Job. I don't mind the branding at all. You did the work after all.

Ok honestly, if you don't like it don't comment. I don't see you helping the situation anyways. This website is going under because of selfish people like you.

Right, I'm going to say this once and once only.

If you have nothing good to add to this topic and are only here to slate the guys hard work, do NOT post. If you do, you WILL be warned and/or temp banned for your trouble.

There is no need for it. If you don't like it, ignore it.

That integration is make os very unstable, I've tried, but doesn't work at all on i386 form. Reloaded has better internal organization of his files in self, much better then LH 08. And Reloaded is more suitable for virtual machines.

Longhorn Reloaded was a steaming pile of [censored]. And sure Longhorn 08 wasn't i386-friendly. I can assure you that as part of the Longhorn 08 team, we didn't give a crap about making sure it was. It was always going to be a patch, and if we ever did decide to integrate, it'd be into a WIM, since that's the authentic Longhorn way of doing things, and unlike pretty much every other patch/hack of 4074, being authentic was critical for us.


Also, I believe the Outlook Express 7 fail is because of the .NET 2.0 presence, use the same old config file patch for that as you would for explorer.

Nope, Outlook can not start even in first start without anything other installed, NET2.0 obviously is not a problem in this case. What old config patch for explorer?
