    OK guys what i want is relative simple in my mind but i dont know how to do it, I'll try to explain.

    I am installing windows 7 and I am installing drivers.

    After that the real work begins, setting windows according to my needs.

    For example i want a script / file or something like it to apply numerous settings to windows 7 after installation in 1 click. I wanna click it myself don't want to customize windows 7 DVD or some program to run it on startup.

    Basically this script need to set my windows with settings like:

    - turn off hibernate
    - turn off system restore
    - set taskbar to show all icons in try
    - set clock to show date in format DD/MMM/YYYY not like default DD/MM/YYYY

    and numerous other.

    Is something like that doable? Can anyone help me do that?

    You don't need a script most will just be registry settings, you can take registry snapshots before and after changes.

    Yep indeed, just change all the reg settings, do a reboot and everything should be ok.

    Script

    If you provide the registry keys that need to be changed, I will write a vbscript to perform the task you are asking on the thread.

    Searching for how too make all that settings from registry, but i doubt every setting of windows is stored in registry, anyway if i manage to find all registry keys to make all changes i need after install i dont think a script will be needed anymore because i can merge all registry settings in 1 file and duble click it.

    I think they're al in registry, except for some bootsettings (they are in bootloader) and that kind of things
