Default Unattended install hangs

yup. Have done an 'attended' install & all works fine. Also tried it with
Win 2K Pro (SP1 slipstreamed) & all seemed to be fine. The XP Pro has SP1
slipstreamed, could it be this? Will try with an original XP CD.

Have you tried it in "attended" mode? You may have a hardware problem

that
is preventing install.

I have made an unattended install floppy using the wizard & when using

this
to try to perform an unattended install XP just hangs.

During setup the computer gets so far & then stops. It starts copying
files, does this for 3 or 4 minutes & then just stops. The hd light

stays
on, there is no activity from the CD drive. I have left it like this for

1/2
hour with no progress. Any ideas? I have created a second

'unattend.txt'
file & get the same problem. I have also manually created an

'unattend.txt'
file & still get the same problem. The computer is an AMD 1.4ghz, 256

ram,
40 gig hd, formatted into 1 partition FAT 32, XP Pro.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Tony
