Prefilling the CD Key

A friend of mine showed me once how to prefill the CD Key for Windows 98/ME, so when you installed you didn't have to type in the CD Key. Does anyone know if this is still possible in XP and if so, which file do you have to edit?

Thanks

you have to create a text file called winnt.sif. In it place the following

------------- begin cut here --------------

[Unattended]
UnattendMode=HIDDEN


[UserData]
ProductKey=XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX
FullName=""
OrgName=""

---------- end cut here ------------------

place this file into you windows xp "i386" directory and bingo thats it

There's also more you can add to that file to specify in advance any option that is set during install. You can basicaly do a install without ever specifiying an option

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
