Whatever I do with Nlite, I end up with an unattended Windows XP  ISO which works perfectly except that it installs 3 or 4 different administrator accounts, including "new user".  Has anyone else had this problem and solved it?  Ideally I want only one Administrator account made.

Are you using an original windows XP install cd or one that was created from a users computer?

It's an XPH disk (OEM) with SP2

It is because you are using the OEM CD.  The accounts are coming from that source.  I had the same issue when I used a Dell Branded OEM CD.  I use an original commercial disc now and don't get that.

Aha.  I'd say you're right.  Actually, I worked around the problem by creating an AutoIT script which deletes all but the accounts I want to keep.
