Unattended Installs for Novices

Post by drebin24a » Wed Sep 30, 2009 5:05 pm

1. Background: I have been using HFSLIP for SP3 and hotfixes from tommyp; I then use nLite for tweaks and such and then make the ISO. Been going good for about a year now, but where I really am a novice at (STILL) is with the unattended installations.

2. Can somebody tell me the basic differences between

HFSVCPACK (HFSLIP)
HFSVCPACK_SW1 (HFSLIP)
HFSVCPACK_SW2 (HFSLIP)
GUIRunOnce (HFSLIP)
RunOnce (nLite)
AddOns (nLite)
RunOnceEx (???)

A good place to start at would be: http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/. It will explain much of what an "unattended" installation is all about. Most of what 'other' programs do is use the actual XP installation process to it's full potential. RunOnce and RunOnceEx are both just another part of an XP install.
