During a Windows NT 4.0 unattended installation through an answer file, setup stops displaying the following message:

"Windows NT Setup Setup is now ready to guide you through installation of Windows NT Networking. If you want to review or change any settings before continuing, click Back. To begin installing Windows NT Networking, click Next."

After the user clicks on the Next button, the installation process continues.


This message will always appear if the machine name is not specified in the answer file or Uniqueness Database File (UDF), even if all networking options such as network cards, protocols, and services are specified.


Specify the machine name for the system using the following format in the answer file:

ComputerName = <string>


Use a Uniqueness Database File, which provides the ability to specify per- computer parameters including the ComputerName.
