  1. VMware is a virtual machine but (depending on your configuration) can still access your network. You could edit your virtual machine to forbid vmware to access the network: the "no network" option.
  2. It's installing!! I've changed the virtual computer's name in winnt.sif so both the virtual and real computers would not have the same names and it worked. Thanks flyakite for the heads up and thanks Astalavista for the support. This board is great! Now comes the task of customizing this baby...
  3. Yo flyakite, that could be it. My the winnt.sif computer name is the same as my main box (which makes sense for a reinstall). I'll try that tonight. Although i think that when i installed using only the XP-SP2 cd it worked (and i think i used the same computer name). Thanks both for the help, i now have a glimmer of hope that it will work tonight.
  4. I'll post my RegTweaks.reg and batch file tonight when i come back home. No nlite from now on. I used because it was recommended by the tutorials on msfn.org. I should have known better and just go command line. I'll keep you posted on how it goes. Thanks for the help (and the link too).
  5. I did not modify any file, did not trim down XP and I'm using a batch file. I have an $OEM$ folder with software to install in $1\Install and i have stuff in $PROGS folder. I'm using a cmdlines.txt and useraccounts.cmd but that should not be the problem since it hasn't been called yet. My version of XP is a french version so that could be it. I did use nlite but only to slipstream SP2, not for editing and trimming down Windows. I'll start back from scratch once i get back home (at work).
  6. (noob alert) This is my first try at an unattended Windows install. I've slipstreamed SP2 unto a virgin XP CD. This image (XP-SP2) works like a charm (tested with vmware). I then went to work and followed the guide supplied on msfn.org. Installation starts normally but it chokes at T-30 after/at the end of the networking installation. The computer then reboots and (after reboot) i get a message that installation is restarting (which it does). So i end up in an endless installation restart loop. I've looked around and did not find anything similar to my problem which means it's probably nothing but i can't figure it out. The culprit is probably winnt.sif since nothing else has been called at this point. So here it is.
