If the field is blank, you will be asked for a password during install.

As far as I know, you will be asked to enter a valid name. However, if have chosen the ********* (1) unattended mode, what you entered in nlite will be used even though it is not good.

(1) means I don't remember the name but in nlite, next to unattended mode, there is a button with all the information you may need.

Not nlite's fault.



And why are those Pringles boxes so deep ?
Anyway, I just got sick. :whistle:

I left it blank, I didnt choose 'blank password' and I was never asked for password during installation

I tried leaving it empty, and nlite used the fullname 'Owner' :S

It maybe depends on the unattended mode you selected.

Check in i386\winnt.sif (plain text file) if there is anything like that. If not, it's windows's fault.

Possibly : a warning if you left 1 or 2 fiels empty ?
Not a bad idea.

you're posting as if you're nuhi's boss and telling him off :P

nlite isn't made to be used by total noobs (not calling you a noob), its a usefull bit of kit that makes your xp a hell of a lot easier to configure, just fill in the fields..
