Unattended XP Install

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support (More info?)

I used Nlite to make slipstreamed CD of xp for Install. While I was using
Nlite, I noticed that a CD for ""Unattended" Install can be made. Has
anyone ever used the unattended version and if so how does it get the
information (Product Code, Time Zone, etc) for installing XP? Does it
really work?

Thanks for the info

    The program will ask you for the information, then creates a file called
    "winnt.sif". You can open this file in Notepad. The file will be located in
    I386 folder. I usually create my own Unattended Disc, but I have tried nLite
    and it does work. There are many more unattended options that you can enter
    into the winnt.sif file than what nLite provides.

    Thanks WTC for the response. I may get around to making an unattended disk.
    AS a curiosity, how do you make your slipstreamed unattended CD if not using
    Nlite?
    Thanks again
