Does any one have good nlite alternatives that can be used in a commercial/professional environment, that will work with xp 64?

nLite is a multipurpose tool. What do you need it to do?

Good question, as using nLite in corporate environments against Windows may violate your licensing with Microsoft as well. Perhaps (as previously mentioned) if we knew what you were hoping to accomplish, we may be able to provide alternatives that you could consider.

I'm looking for a utility for setting up an unattended install system setup disk that will apply hot fixes, install drivers, set up user accounts, make system security changes, and start installation of software.

Have you already looked at RIS or MDT 2010? If your company is a Microsoft Partner, you can also email your partner rep to see if they can recommend any methods that match your requirements, as they would know more about what you do than any random online people would.

RIS would not work, needs to be a standalone installation, I'm looking at MDT 2010 and seeing if i can work through it, thanks for the lead.

I know it is possible to use MDT to build stand-alone media (DVD or USB i guess) in case you do not have the ability to do network deployments. I haven't done it myself but I have seen examples from clients.

You can indeed, and it's not difficult.
