    OK I found an elegant solution. Winlogon can not be replaced that way outlined above, the reason is instalation freezes after first boot, probably beacuse of the way instalator handles user accounts. Anyway, the solution to this is to create a .CAB file containing silent installer that replaces winlogon with minlogon and imports its registry keys and integrate this .CAB add-on as an hotfix within nLite. This way, no manual steps are needed.
    Simple, elegant.
    I have tested first version of installer. Its not fully silent as there is Regedit popup on first boot asking for your confirmation to import minlogon registry key - this will be fixed in next release along with script to delete OEMBIOS.* files (no longer needed with minlogon - bye bye and unused user accounts).
    For anyone interested, I can post add-on here upon request.

    Update: second version of minlogon add-on is available.
    Changes:
    a) completelly silent
    b) removes OEMBIOS.* files within SYSTEM32 folder (no longer needed with minlogon)

    I'd like to give this a try too. I have a partition on my carputer that I use for testing out different nlite installs. Still havent gotten the perfect install yet so this will be quite useful for me.

    All right, here you go:

    Minlogon nLite add-on, rev. 02

    Instructions: integrate in nLite as normal hotfix. Note that I only tested this add-n with WFP disabled. I do not think this add-on will ever work if you keep WFP enabled.

    Once the nLited WinXP is installed, you will be running with minlogon automatically. No more registry hacking, no messing with winlogon executable, no reboots.
    If you are perfectictonist like me, you might want to delete winlogon.--- file from SYSTEM32 folder as this is leftover that can not be deleted from within add-on itself. You also might want to delete any remaining user account, including Administrator one, as only Default user is used with minlogon.
