    Hi everyone!i am attempting to install windows xp using an answer file but have run into a problem. The unattended install fails with the following error:
    Line 14 of the inf file c:\winnt.sif is invalid
    Setup cannot continue

    The first few lines of my file is as follows:

    well, since line 14 is the adminpassword, you may want to change that second quote character. either use quotes to enclose the complete password, or don't use quotes at all (i think... ms requires enclosure by quotes, but i believe using no quotes will also work).

    and by the way, you've got your productid up there for all to see, including search engines. if you don't want it to get blacklisted by microsoft, i think you better remove it from your post.
