What do you mean by "auto mode"? There is no OS in the world that installs itself without having the user make any decisions... :(

How would this be useful for the average user? From what I read this is more efficient for big corporations.. :cry:

See this thread:
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=13468&p=112219&hili ... ed#p112219

if i remember well, it's not fully unattended in every stage of setup, some user interaction is needed in every case.

unattended install is a bulk install (oem install) feature,
reactos is alpha, bulk install is not reccomanded because can do bulk damages.

the only use i can see for this feature now is for mass testing on differente hardware.

i hope this feature will be fully available, in future, to everyone, when the system will be more stable.

A GUI installation anwer file editor would be nice. I am also looking forward to see ability to remaster live CDs without a full rebuild from source.

I agree with the previous poster. Unattended mode is interesting for testers because it is always the same configuration, be it VMs or real hardware.
