Have you ever wanted a Windows XP CD that would install Windows XP by automatically putting in your name, product key, timezone and regional settings? Followed by silently installing all your favourite applications along with the latest DirectX, .Net Framework and then all the Windows Critical Updates, registry tweaks, updated drivers, and a readily patched UXTheme.dll without any user interaction whatsoever? Then this guide will show you how you can do just that!

The following are the procedures to follow for an unattended install of Windows XP Pro with
Office XP Professional from a Windows 2000 Server.  There are various ways to script an unattended install of a Microsoft operating system, and this is just one possible installation scenario.
If you are looking to implement an unattended install of Windows XP, this document will get you started. The various steps can be modified to suit your environment.
Note: Although this document discusses Windows XP and Office XP, the same procedures can be followed for Windows 2000 and Office 2000.
