can i install windows xp with autoit?

after this windows installation will be not a problem to install by myself because all the buttons and keys will be sent by AutoIt Script. i saw a windows "Crystal XP" which uses the autoit script for its automation but it's different then xp. if anyone can help me then it would be appreciated a lot. thanks for reading my post.

Welcome To Forums,

you can create a script to send Keys and click buttons for automating windows installation but you need to run this file during the start of installation. you can do it by pressing the Shift+F10 while installing windows, it will open command prompt and Voila now you can run any file using dos like Your Script.

but if you don't want to use autoit and just want to get your problem solved then there is a very great software better then nLite which can do whatever you want to automate. give it a try...

you can also do that with nlite, you can configure the installation process itself to be unattended. No special keypresses required. And you can configure post install commands, when xp has fully booted for the first time. And best of all, Almeza MultiSet, its free :)
