Customizing WinPE
 
I've got a custom winpe image that I'm building that has a script
start on boot. After the script runs, I may want to then install Vista
on the harddrive. I thought that wpeinit.exe was responsible for this
but running it from the disc does not start the installer.

How can I start the Windows Vista installer? What exe does this?

Hi Luke,

Wpeinit only runs whatever commands are in your unattend.xml file, it
doesn't kick off a Vista setup or any other commands unless you tell it to.
(well, it also initialises PnP devices and loads networking).

To start a Vista installation, you need to run "setup.exe" from the root of
the Vista installation tree, passing it your answer file as a parameter if
you're planning to do an unattended installation.

There's more info in the WAIK help file - see the topic "Methods for running
Windows setup".

Hope it helps
Andrew
