Hi. After a bit of help. For ages now I have been using a combination of a RUNONCE envoking a .vbs file pointing to a .cmd file which calls XXMKLINK.exe to make shortcuts on my desktop during a fresh install. For a short while now I have been using DISM to add the usual drivers, updates and the like but just recently got into adding other stuff via DISM. I.E having MY Computer placed on the desktop during a fresh install along with a whole bunch of other REGEDITS. But I can not for the life in me to get the shortcuts to work. Is it even possible ? This is how I do it via the $OEM$ folder. in the OOBE I have The .vbs looks like this and finally the .cmd looks like this This is what I am doing...Using DISM I am copying the .vbs and the .cmd file into the mounted Windows dir. Then I load the reg hive and import this reg even tried this But It just does not work.. So can any of the clever folk on here see where I am going wrong. Is it all possible for DISM to be utilised this way ? Thanks for reading, hope somebody can help me out.
