As per title, I am v new to this, but have managed to make my first multi vendor XP Home SP3 DVD. I started out with a Dell XP Home SP1 disk and just followed several guides. Now that seems to work, and I don't have to enter a key during the install process I have become interested in trying to make an unattended install version. I have downloaded the Deployment Tools from MS for XP SP3, and have tried to run their setup manager. However, when I run the setup manager it always crashes in the "Date and Time" section of the answer file when I am making it. It complains that it cannot get the required info from the registry, says it will skip the question, and then crashes. I am running the setup manager on my laptop that is running Vista. Is that the wrong thing to do? Do I have to run the setup manager from a machine that I have installed XP Home onto?
