You can try using WMIC (but I doubt it will be available at that stage :unsure:):

Or you might need to use a third party tool, like:

How to "automate" it, is another thing, but that should be T-39 stage, you may want to try DetachedProgram

BTW (and for the record):

The original source of the "trick" is most probably:

http://www.technostriker.com/2012/06/install-windows-xp-faster-then-ever.html

which is NOT particularly supported by evidence, NOT EVEN anecdotal :w00t::

I haven;t experimentally checked this trick, But i have told this trick to many persons and they found it usefull, So why dont you go and give it a try…

If you fully nLite a XP disk it will install in less than 10 minutes.

I've had 5 minute times.

I just ran a 4-4.5 minute XP\SP3 install.
