    Hi all!

    I've seen that many people remove Out of Box Experience in a slim copy of Win XP and I would like to do the same without running into issues. I have XP Pro and Home with activation codes (underneath the laptops).
    Actually, I already have both OS activated. So, theoretically I would need to find the activation files, then copy and paste them in the system32 folder of the new installation cd project. If I'm not wrong, WPA.dbl should be the file I need but I remember that Windows needs to be restarted in Safe Mode after the installation in order to replace that file. How to avoid that?

    Is it enough to copy the activation files in the system32 folder or will I need to set even something else in nLite in order to skip activation (or, at least, to make this task unattended)?
