Thanks

It should run that process automatically as part of the boot process to install the files copied on to the machine.

If it not doing that Windows 2003 can boot from the CD. Can the computer boot from Cd install 2003 and leave the cd in the machine?

If you install a package that requires a reboot, then Windows marks a registry file, denoting that windows should reboot.

You can reset that reg entry to stop this.

Is this what your looking to do?

If it is I'll post the link to the reg key

What I mean is, when you install windows on DOS from the cd-rom whitout booting from hte cd-rom you have to execute the winnt.exe to install it, so it copies the windows files to the harddisk and ask you to reboot right after of the reboot it starts to install windows.

Get it?

Are you saying that your server is in constant reboot after the install of Windows and you want to stop that?

Ok, let me try again.

I'm installing windows 2003, so I boot the computer with a floppy boot disk running DOS so I load the cd-rom drivers so I go the cd-rom drive on I386 and execute winnt.exe so it copies the windows 2003 files to my hard disk and in the end it ask me to re-start the computer so now it should start the windows 2003 setup, my question is after the boot which file does windows 2003 executes in order to keep installing it?

Thanks
