Get latest JRE offline installer for windows

As always i am trying to figure out some automation process to download latest version of JRE. In this scenario i analyse https://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp and look for all links that contains "BundleId". Now i use wget spider to look what filename the link actually retrieve. I do not download anything. I just look for filename. I am only interested in files which ends with i586.exe or x64.exe and if it is then download it!

To work with this method save these files:

In directory where all those libraries is having a good time create get-latest-JRE.cmd with content:
@echo off
setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion
set path=%path%;%~dp0

del "%~dp0*i586.exe" /Q /F
del "%~dp0*x64.exe" /Q /F

set lnk=https://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp
for /f "tokens=*" %%l in ('^
wget --no-cookies --no-check-certificate %lnk% -qO- ^|
grep BundleId ^|
sed "s/\d034/\n/g" ^|
grep "^http" ^|
gnusort ^|
uniq') do (
echo looking for exe installer under %%l
wget %%l -S --spider -o "%~dp0jretmp.log"
sed "s/http/\nhttp/g;s/exe/exe\n/g" "%~dp0jretmp.log" |^
grep "^http.*x64.exe$\|^http.*i586.exe$" |^
gnusort | uniq | grep "^http.*x64.exe$\|^http.*i586.exe$"
if !errorlevel!==0 (
for /f "tokens=*" %%f in ('^
sed "s/http/\nhttp/g;s/exe/exe\n/g" "%~dp0jretmp.log" ^|
grep "^http.*x64.exe$\|^http.*i586.exe$" ^|
gnusort ^|
uniq ^|
sed "s/^.*\///g"') do (
wget --no-cookies --no-check-certificate %%l -O "%~dp0%%f"
%%l stands for link
%%f stands for filename

Slipstream updates into Windows 8.1 like a Pro (practical part)

This is most practical part of Slipstream updates into Windows 8.1 like a Pro.
You can read theoretical part to start from begining

Deployment tools must be installed.

Windows installation ISO file must be stored in c:\g\w
Name it like en_windows_8.1_pro_ir5_x64_dvd.iso
You can prepare this iso file by downloading ESD file and converting ESD to ISO file.

Save all these libraries in c:\g\w:

Create C:\g\w\w81pro\sources\$OEM$\$$\Setup\Scripts\FirstRun.cmd with content:
for %%i in (b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z) do (
if exist %%i:\FirstRun\FirstRun.bat %%i:\FirstRun\FirstRun.bat
Save autounattend.xml in c:\g\w\w81pro

Use Internet Explorer and download all necessary updates from catalog.update.microsoft.com. Then move all update directories to c:\g\w\u81x64pro

Open "Deployment and Imaging Tools Environment" in "Run as Administrator" mode and run the code:

cd c:\g\w
content of c:\g\w\win81x64pro-slipstream.cmd
@echo off
setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion

If you want to execute another custom application silent installation just place it into c:\g\FirstRun\FirstRun.bat

Automatic deployment rules, Last Error Code, 0x800701F7

To solve this case i reset the windows update on local sccm server which has updates service point installed
reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate" /f
net stop wuauserv
rd %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution /Q /S
SC sdshow wuauserv
wuauclt.exe /detectnow
Then i open windows update in SCCM server where also the WSUS server is installed and press "Check for update":

Code 80072EFD usually means that you have WSUS server isolated from internet:

In this case you need to double check Lan settings:

Headless raspbian-wheezy

OMFG! I was looking for ages to configure network interfaces using only fat partition from windows.

So here is what I do

Download fresh raspbian image:
Open and extract archive

Use Win32DiskImager and push extracted IMG file to SD card:

Use something like notepad++ and open config.txt for editing. At the end of file add this line:
initramfs initrd.img followkernel
Remember to save changes!

Save initrd.img
into the boot partition.

Save setup.sh into the boot partition.

Use something like notepad++ and open setup.sh for edition and set WIFISSID and WIFIKEY to satisfy your needs.

content of setup.sh:
#! /bin/bash

reset_autostart() {
  echo "Cleanup autostart ..."
  if [ -e /etc/arch-release ]; then
    sed -i 's:--autologin root ::g'  /etc/systemd/system/getty.target.wants/getty\@tty1.service || { echo "Unable to edit systemd service to remove autologon (Arch)"; exit 1; }

First i turn off antiviruss.

Then i use dotnet repair tool:

I tried install SCCM agent and failed.

Then i install again .NET 4.5.2

I tried install SCCM agent and failed.

Then i run batch file in "Run as Administrator" mode (do not paste just into cmd windows!):
@echo off
sc config winmgmt start= disabled
net stop winmgmt /y
cd %windir%\system32\wbem
For /f %%s in ('dir /b *.dll') do regsvr32 /s %%s
wmiprvse /regserver
winmgmt /regserver
net start winmgmt
for /f %%s in ('dir /b *.mof *.mfl') do mofcomp %%s
I tried install SCCM agent and failed.

Then i decided to run windows update and get:
Code 80072EFD
Then i clear whole update cache:
reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate" /f
net stop wuauserv
rd %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution /Q /S
SC sdshow wuauserv
wuauclt.exe /detectnow
Then get error again and i also get angry.

Then i retry windows updates:

Then i play with network and proxy settings:

Now i re-check windows updates.

Then i get happy cause windows shows that there is hunred of updates which needed to be install.
I installed all these updates via standart update interface.

Now after restarting computer i am able to install SCCM agent.

Your system drive has a GUID partition table (GPT). Currently, only drives with MBR partition table are supported.

If you are using laptop and you are not gone take out your drive then solution is:
1) Backup installed windows key

2) Turn on Legacy mode in BIOS. This will turn off UEFI mode

3) Download legacy windows 8.1 image and convert to iso.

4) Boot Windows setup and press Shift+F10

5) Launch diskpart utility and enter commands:
list disk
select disk 0
convert mbr
create partition primary
format fs=ntfs quick
6) Install windows with same key as before
