I don't have any place to host it either.

Now, I have a hotfix and realize that this doesn't help at all. During the Unattended Installation (AI) Windows will search for the available drivers. It will find the appropriate driver but the hotfix isn't installed yet.
I use Windows XP SP2 integrated and I install the hotfixes during app install fase. Hhhmm,....
Is there a way I can integrate the hotfix in the source?

For anyone who had the same problem. Use:
Where C:\XPCD should be the path to your source dir.
I'll give it a go and post my outcome.
(It'll probably take some time a I now want to integrate all my hotfixes )

EDIT: unless that hotfix of you isn't a driver of course...

My company is now moving ahead with an SP2 rollout, so I will likely /integrate all of the patches in our next image.
Just an FYI,

Even the pop-up with the hardware wizard is gone now.
Many thanks guys.

I do RIS installs, and occasionally I get the odd PC that will appear to pause during a setup and ask for a driver, but in fact the installation continues behind the scenes with no user intervention actually required.
Actually, that's what was happening with the setup I use. It prompted for the driver, and after about 4 minutes (yes, I timed it) it would continue on. It did pause setup during that time, which was unacceptable to my employer.

An impatient fellow considering you've probably automated 90% of the setup process to begin with.
Maybe, but I like receiving my paycheck. The process is 99% automated, however it is quite lengthy (2-3 hours per machine) and used globally. They told me to resolve the issue, and I did. IMO, that's how employee/employer relationships are supposed to work. Besides, it wasn't difficult to contact Microsoft for the patch, once I realized there was a patch out there.

I was going to install KB883667 but then I read that this patch is for fixing windows from hanging while installing the video driver, which is not my case (http://support.micro...om/?kbid=883667). My setup does not hang, it just asks for the driver.
It seems that this problem mostly occurs on laptops. I am using an HP Compaq nx6110

I dont know wether this prompt comes up for people who intergrate their Display drivers at the start of Gui Install but it is for me.
Couldn't you use CMDLINES.TXT to launch a batch file to install the Display drivers at T-12?
I'll try it.

I have also tried installing KB883667 as suggested in this topic, no luck either, propably because I already have all the latest windows updates.
The problem of Unattend Install Prompting For Monitor Driver still exists though. What else can I try?

Bashrat, I'm not sure why integrating the hotfix would not work as you mentioned; I tested it and it worked fine. My understanding is that any hotfix can be integrated (I use the SVCPack method). The only reason I wouldn't integrate it is because it is easy for me to see what hotfixes have been applied using SVCPack and also allows me to remove a hotfix should I need to.
