I tried to upload it and got the following message:

"The total filespace required to upload all the attached files is greater than your per post or global limit. Please reduce the number of attachments or the size of the attachments."

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

I know it's confusing, I thought the same thing at first.

But you have to click the 'Free' button to continue ;)

That did the job. I guess I should read better... :blushing:

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? :huh:

And another example of reacting to quick... :blushing:

For anyone who had the same problem. Use:

WindowsXP-KB873333-x86-ENU.exe /integrate:C:\XPCD

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 :thumbup )

@McDanger: that way it will probably NOT work, maybe in this case but... The way I just mentioned, it will ALWAYS work! ;)

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

I was installing all my patches from svcpack.inf, but I used the /integrate switch to slipstream this one patch into my unattended install. It worked great and solved the monitor issue.

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,

I must say. I've now integrated nearly all my hotfixes, two wouldn't work, and it's working great. B)

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. :D 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 have the same problem. During hardware detection, the «Found New Hardware» wizard pops up and asks me to click "Next" so that it can find the proper drivers for "Plug and Play Monitor" When I click "Next" it just installs it, without me having to do anything.

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'm not exactly familiar with using the CMDLINES.TXT, but it mentions it gets parsed at T-12.
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?
Would the;
[Display]
BitsPerPel=32
Xresolution=1280
YResolution=1024
Vrefresh=85
Still work?

I'll try it. :)

Well, today I tried intergrading KB883667 too. It wouldn't let me, since I already have SP2 and all the updates. So I guess there is no solution for this problem.

I am currently using the Drivers from CD: Simple Method, as suggested in this topic to solve the problem of the Unattend Install Prompting For Monitor Driver.

This is my winnt.sif

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?

My next update pack will include KB883667, and I've heard reports from a few testers that it does indeed fix the problem. Stay tuned ;)

You were right. KB883667 does work! I have no idea what was wrong with my I386, but as soon as I re-copied it from the CD to my HDD, and tried to slipstream KB883667, it all went very smooth. Then I did a fresh install on the laptop, and there were no popups asking for drivers. Perfect! :)

I was having the same problem (pausing during install while NHW looked for a monitor driver) so I followed http://support.micro....com/?id=814847 (supplied by Bashrat) to fix my unattended install running off a W2K3 RIS server with the kb883667 hotfix.

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.
