I wish to rename 2 specific links from within the Start Menu for my unattended cd:

Rename My Computer to 'piXel'

Rename (C:) Local Disk to 'piXel'

I wish to rename both of these links unattendedly, how would I go about it?

Thanks for any assistance

I'm unsure how you can rename my computer unattended. but to rename your drive, simply use the dos command label.

In your case: label c: piXel, where c: is your OS drive.

Rename "My Computer" unattended.
Run this vbs script from RunOnceEx.
It will be the name you set in your "winnt.sif".
Const MY_COMPUTER = &H11&

Set objNetwork = CreateObject("Wscript.Network")
objComputerName = objNetwork.ComputerName
Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
Set objFolder = objShell.Namespace(MY_COMPUTER) 
Set objFolderItem = objFolder.Self
objFolderItem.Name = objComputerName

Rename "Drive(s)" unattended.
Put this "reg" in your regtweaks.
It will also do your icon.
