  1. I've been trying to make an unattended install of windows xp pro for work. We run on a novell network, so it would be much easier if we could install XP and novell at the same time. I've managed to get almost of all of it completed, but I have a few hanging points. I'm using Novell client 483, and its required that I remove Client for Microsoft Networks, QoS, and File and Printer Sharing. I used setupmgr.exe to build the .sif file for the unattended build. I selected that I wanted to use a custom network configuration and removed the client and services from the list. I then added IPX at 802.2 (which is required for the novell application launcher to work). The section of winnt.sif looks like this: [Networking] InstallDefaultComponents=No [NetAdapters] Adapter1=params.Adapter1 [params.Adapter1] INFID=* [NetProtocols] MS_TCPIP=params.MS_TCPIP MS_NWIPX=params.MS_NWIPX [params.MS_TCPIP] DNS=Yes UseDomainNameDevolution=No EnableLMHosts=Yes AdapterSections=params.MS_TCPIP.Adapter1 [params.MS_TCPIP.Adapter1] SpecificTo=Adapter1 DHCP=Yes WINS=No NetBIOSOptions=0 [params.MS_NWIPX] VirtualNetworkNumber=00000000 AdapterSections=params.MS_NWIPX.Adapter1 [params.MS_NWIPX.Adapter1] SpecificTo=Adapter1 PktType=0x2 So, you would imagine that this would install only the TCP and IPX protocols, as I requested it to ... no, not so much so. Once the XP system is installed, IPX is installed at 802.2, but all the default microsoft stuff is still installed. (MS Client, QoS, and Sharing) I've been sitting here for hours trying to find a file for the network profile or some sort of registry setting that I could tweak in order to removed this network stuff. So far, I've come up with nothing. Any help that anyone would have would be appreciated.
