You mean to only to include the winnt.sif file and no other programs to install. Yes this is possible. All you have to do is delete the line under [GuiRunOnce]. I am not sure but there might be more lines to delete.

only a few questions ....

1.I have the winnt.sif file... Where to put it? on the cd?

2.I can't find [GuiRunOnce] in the file...

And is it possible to delete only the line FullName="User" form [userData], so the setup only ask my name and then continue in the installtion?

In the i386 directory, it says this in the Unattended XP CD guides on the site.

2.I can't find  [GuiRunOnce]in the file...

If it isn't there, then don't worry about it.

And is it possible to delete only the line FullName="User" form [userData], so the setup only ask my name and then continue in the installtion?

Yes

:rolleyes: The winnt.sif should be placed in i386 directory

actually unattend.txt is renamed to winnt.sif . Other thing [GuiRunOnce]

this section tells windows xp to run commands after setup is finished

to create both of these one must have Windows Deployment tools >

Setupmgr.exe must be extracted from the cab file :)

Not true. I wrote mine in Notepad. Setupmgr.exe has never seen the light of day on my PC.
