    If you use mini-setup and fully automate it you then don't need to enter anything.

    Was this aimed at my post?
    If so, I am aware of that, my point was that the way I read the MS instructions is that if you choose not to use mini setup, you get the swirly Welcome to Windows set of screens.

    I was indeed being bumb and forgetting to tell it to use mini-setup (I usually use sysprep with domain-joined machines and these default to mini-setup).

    So I've ticked the relevent box and I had to use an unencrypted password too to make it work.

    I guess that means I owe DMcCoy, Michael, sparkeh and plexer free meals! If anyone can get themselves here before Friday I will sort you out

    You can feel sorry for me instead. I'm working through the various Vista deployment settings, stages, options, packages etc.

    It's all too damn complicated! (Was just driver folder + sysprep, ghost). Now it's huge xml files, different stages and 4 different methods of adding drivers (along with STUPID signing settings - Microsoft's are favoured by default).
