You can configure your answer file to specify your name and organization during an unattended install of Vista.

Examine the following answer file component using Windows SIM:


You’ll see three settings there. The first setting (AcceptEula) must be configured as True if you want to automate the windowsPE configuration pass of Windows Setup.

This information will be displayed on the View Computer Details page of the Welcome Center when you first log on.
