Hello,

[edit: DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME. THE AUDIO WON'T WORK AFTER THIS HACK]

Has anyone ever tried this?
I've just tried on a computer of my own by just executing this on WinPE

reg.exe LOAD HKLMSYSTEM_TEMP C:WINDOWSSYSTEM32CONFIGSOFTWARE
reg.exe DELETE HKLMSYSTEM_TEMPControlSet001ENUM
reg.exe UNLOAD HKLMSYSTEM_TEMP

After that I rebooted the computer and it redetected everything! :D

This is going to help me a lot when moving Windows from a computer to another, so I hope it will help you too.

Do anyone of you know any side effect this could do?

Of course this isn't everything. Also I have to take care of some conflicting services and cleaning the criticaldevicedatabase... but that's for another time :)

IMHO it is (as is) of little use until you have a "complete" solution (which inclusdes the CDDB and of course it means that availability of needed boot time drivers for the "new" machine).

What happens to ControlSet002? :dubbio:


I presume that using Offline Sysprep gives a bit more of reliability :unsure:

As now I already detect HAL and install the correct one, and I'm working on injecting hard disk drivers by myself.

REG DELETE HKLMSYSTEM_TEMPCONTROLSET002
Don't worry about it, this utility is thought for preinstallations on new pcs in a computer workshop.

I know there are tools available for that but I need to create it by myself in order to embed it on an unattended installer (which I will be selling then :D).

I am not at all "worried" :) you simply did not mention it in OP, and unless you check the Select key you will never know which ControlSet is actually the one in use.

Mmmm... I have never seen a computer using any other controlset than the first one... and I see my work pc is using the second :|
I'll take that into consideration, thanks :)
