Hi there,

For some reason this key under [Unattended]

DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore

is actually ignored. When I try to install the NVIDIA drivers it goes silent all the way (it's an Installshield install) until the Windows dialog box about an unsigned driver being installed shows up

Here's my full [Unattended] chapter:

[Unattended]
UnattendMode=FullUnattended
OemSkipEula=Yes
OemPreinstall=Yes
UnattendSwitch=Yes
DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore
Repartition=No
TargetPath=*
WaitForReboot=No
CrashDumpSetting=0

(By the way, Aaron, I don't quite get why you suggest to use "no" for UnattendSwitch. The manual clearly explains you should use Yes and it works for me, while "no" doesn't...)

Regards

Como Molo

I couldn't find much in the Knowledge base for issues regarding DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore

These is all I could find:

UnattendSwitch
Specifies whether Setup skips Windows Welcome or Mini-Setup when preinstalling Windows XP Home Edition or Windows XP Professional using the CD Boot method.

Syntax UnattendSwitch = Yes | No

Yes
Instructs Setup to skip Windows Welcome.

No
Instructs Setup not to skip Windows Welcome

I used no so I could create a user account to log into for the batch to install my specific reg entries into.

Thanks Aaron, I misunderstood you about the UnattendSwitch thing, sorry.

Regarding the main point here, I don't quite get it (I have everything the way it's supposed to be). Maybe the problem has to do with the fact that the NVIDIA drivers are installed with their own install program and the flag only applies to .inf drivers installation, what do you think?

If that were the case, I believe a registry tweak made *before* installing the drivers should work. What do you think? Do you know where the registry holds any value regarding this?

Best regards. Great work by the way.
