Hi All,

I have created an msbatch.inf file to automate Win98 installs. I have used MSbatch.exe, also tried copying other successful infs off the web and editing the preferences in notepad.

In all these scenarios the installation runs fine until the pc reboots after W98 installs. After restart I am presented with a Windows98 Setup Wizard, with the username and/or company name filled in, then I must click next, accept the EULA agreement (yes, I have entered ShowEula=0 in setup) click next, arrive at the product key page (Key is already entered) and click next to accept.

In msbatch all boxes are ticked under general setup options / setup prompts. OS is Win98SE.

From what I have read the auto install should not stop here but proceed unobstructed to the point where windows starts up and detects the plug n play monitor. I have wrestled with this for about 3-4 days and have reinstalled windows more times than I care to remember. What am I missing here? Please help me salvage what sanity I have left. Any help and/or ideas, preferably solutions, much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
