Hi all.


I was wondering how to make XP ask all questions (timezone, computer name, workgroup) in OOBE right before first start up, instead of during the installation process. I noticed before that when restoring XP using the recovery partition on some laptops, that XP asks for these questions in OOBE right in the "Welcome to Windows XP" blue screens, along with Account names, etc.


The purpose is to create a OEM XP installation disk that only asks for partition creation, installs without stopping, then asks for all info in the end instead of stopping several times. I would prefer this info to be added manually instead of predefined in WINNT.SIF, the only info on the file should be the OEM key and the necessary commands to "push" the questions to the end of the installation, if possible.


Can this be done?
