Hmm... the best that I'm coming up with off the top of my head is to use RunOnceEx/GuiRunOnce and call the shutdown command. However, that happens after the reboot and first part of login is initiated. Perhaps if you could share with us the purpose for doing this we might be able to come up with another solution as well.

At the moment i am doing it through GuiRunOnce after the first logon.

The purpose is to have Install stopped at that point, to give users a chance to complete configuration (oobe stuff: user accounts, internet connection etc.) themselves. More like those big brand factory preinstalled computers.

Surely I could sit there and switch the computer off when it reboots the second time, but then it would not be unattended really.

I thought more on the idea of hex editing one of the setup files (syssetup.dll?) or something like that.

While i'm at it it would be nice to see my UACD ejected before shutdown too.

You could load the PC completely, then sysprep (reseal) it and it will run through a mini setup that the user can enter their own info, just like the big factory ones, at first boot.
