Hello

I am making an unattended install with the Deploy.cab => setupmgr.exe
I have all what i want.
Just pop in the CD and setup completes without interaction (even paritioning) but when setup is completed i want to SKIP the oobe.

But i dont want to use Nlite because they dont support automatic repartitioning.

Does anyone know where to put the Skip OOBE switch.
This is my Winnt.sif (Key is XXXXX out and Password)
Because this is a legit VLK key and the password is the adminstrator pasword for the network.
I know that * makes random computernames.

Code:
;SetupMgrTag
[Data]
    AutoPartition=1
    MsDosInitiated="0"
    UnattendedInstall="Yes"

[Unattended]
    UnattendMode=FullUnattended
    OemSkipEula=Yes
    OemPreinstall=No
    TargetPath=\WINDOWS
    Repartition=Yes

[GuiUnattended]
    AdminPassword="XXXXXXXXXXX"
    EncryptedAdminPassword=NO
    OEMSkipRegional=1
    TimeZone=110
    OemSkipWelcome=1

[UserData]
    ProductID=XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX
    FullName="DOC"
    OrgName="DOC Stap"
    ComputerName=*

[RegionalSettings]
    LanguageGroup=1

[Identification]
    JoinWorkgroup=Werkgroep

[Networking]
    InstallDefaultComponents=Yes


I am adding proxysetting and DNS settings later to put in to a domain.
Further information:
CD-ROM = Windows XP Professional SP2 VLK DUTCH

I am NOT using Sysrep because this will be used on different types of computers with different hardware.

Just extract all files from Deploy.cab from the XP CD or from the microsoft download center and build your own unattended install.

You can make it like that you only have to push the spacebar when its says:
Press any key to boot from cd...

for automatic partitioning:
Repartition=Yes

for skipping windows welcome (and the screenresolution stays at 640x480, you can change that after logging in).
UnattendSwitch=Yes
