How to make a ReactOS ISO with opensource software

Post by LMH1 »

How can I make/edit a .iso files of ReactOS install (more like linux distibution) that also install a lot of free software?
"ReactOS Downloader" will use a lot of minutes to install all of software I want.

But it can be selected to install.

E.g: (great software list)

Web tools
Firefox 3.0
Thunderbird 2.0
aMSN messenger

Office tools
Openoffice 3.01
Abiword
Jedit
Gimp

Mediaplayer
Videolan
audacity
MediaPortal

ReactOS tools
ReactOS Build Environment for Windows NT-compatible OS 1.4

Server
Apache
PHP

Free games
Tux race
Supertux

It is most easy to use a bat/cmd files that can install all of software list?

[ external image ] With "lang" folder that software can be translated. And all install software .exe files on a folder e.g "OPENSOFTWARE" in reactos.iso.

After Setup - Part II

Do I need to build a edited software to make a different iso on ReactOS? or do I only need to add more files on "Reactos.iso"?

I have tried some time to silently install some apps during install with unattended setup, but it failed.
Maybe i should retry now again. Many fixes have been made :)

I have also ask this before.
But I could not find out if it was possible to make an unattended setup.
Also if it is possible to add so it run a .bat file on first run.
That would solve the problem.
there is no need to be fully unattended just a way to run one file on first run.

boot\bootdata\unattend.inf
Change:
set UnattendSetupEnabled = yes
And set your CODE of language (Spanish 407)(see hivesys.inf for available languages):
-; LocaleID = 40a

Also if you want Debug output via Nullmodem:
This is niski patch:
