Hello everyone,
i'm trying to do an unattended installation of windows xp. Since I'm installing the system via VirtualBox, I wanted to know if you could specify in the answer file the automatic shutdown of the system after installation is complete.
I am sure of your help, thanks in advance...

You can do it with an answer file that has a GuiRunOnce command and then a batch file in the $OEM$ folders.

Use something like this for GuiRunOnce...

REG ADD HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Runonce /v Shutdown /d %SystemDrive%\shutdown.bat

and in shutdown.bat have....

ping -n 15 127.0.0.1 >NUL
shutdown -s

I would think that perhaps just adding shutdown -s to the GuiRunOnce might do the trick but I forget if the desktop is fully loaded at that point.


Let me know if you need a more detailed response.
