Turn the system off automatically after installing windows
Posted 11 June 2012 - 07:56 AM
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...

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.
