    FetLyd, does your exe contain compressed versions of minlogin and ewf, or do you need them seperatley?

    No, it doesn't contain any files.. You'll need to place them like i wrote in one of the earlier posts..

    Thanks.
    Was just going back through the posts then realised I had done anything before building the image, other than unzipping your $OEM$ folder, left it doing an unattended install on my test VMware this morning before I left for work. Damn, how stupid. that's going to work well.

    Good job, I can at least see how small the base Nlited install is, if the missing files haven't fubared the install.

    My computer that I have been testing this with has no password on startup before the changes. After running the Fetlyd.exe program (accidentally kind of) it now boots up with the w2k style login but hangs and asks for a username and password. I have tried everything but cant get past it. Is there password set during this install?

    It isnt a huge deal, but would be nice if I could get back in to recover some stuff from the last few days

    OK, minlogin worked sort of.
    XP Pro Corp with a streamlined SP2 using Nlite.
    Downloaded fetlyd.zip and EWF.zip

    for the minlogin stuff,
    put commandlines.txt and fetlyd.reg in $oem$
    put fetlyd.exe minlogon.exe and minlogon.reg in $oem$/$$/system32

    Then created and installed the Nlited ISO onto a VMWare virtual box.
    It only installed XP as normal , and on a reboot carried on using winlogon.

    I had a look through the registry for the fetlyd.exe in the runonce keys, and nothing there.

    fetlyd.exe was in the system32 folder, so I ran it by hand and it over copied the winlogon correctly.

    Rebooted and I now have a fairly quick minlogon booting into the system account.

    The program I threw together does not set any passwords.. Actually, with MinLogin, i think you should'nt have gotten that login screen at all.. Anyways, good thing you figured it out..
