Sorry i took so long to reply, needed to try out various things.

Last night i used my original XP Pro CD, no SP1 or 2, and no winnt.sif file.

I did a full Format as part of the installation

There was no OOBE at the end of installation, it just goes straight to the Administrator Desktop, i am given no choice to set up user accounts.

is this something to do with the fact that, the graphics drivers for the machine are not included with XP, so the graphics are set to 640x 480

This is all being tried out on a Dell 2400, and the graphics are integrated, and there is no AGP slot.

What i am trying to say is does the OOBE depend on Graphics.

Well, i think it might have, because i have just used the same disc in an old Gateway 500, and at last i have the OOBE.

Now this machine has an Nvidia 64mb graphics card, and the drivers are included in XP.

Can anybody else think of an explanation for this.

I sure as hell don't think Dells got a problem with it.

Its me (with contributions from the forum) thats spent the last couple of days trying to find out why my winnt.sif file was not working, when all along it was.

I have just created a new XP+SP1&2.iso with my original winnt.sif file (with of course the Amended UnattendSwitch answer), and used it to install on the Gateway machine, and the OOBE appeared.
