Hi All,

I am beginning my Server 2008 Build. As I only work on Server OS's I have no knowledge of how to automate Vista installs.
Does any one have any good links or docs on how to do automated Installs of 2008 Server?
Anything will help.

I have to prepare images for STD and ENT edition that can run on multiple vendors hardware.

PE is easy... Thats pretty much done.
Drivers are easy... Done as well.

I'm specifically looking for information on making the WIMS's, manageing them, and how to gen the XML file that replaces the Unattend.txt.
All of my work will be in VB Script. But I am open to Powershell as well.
