For a little experiment i wanna try, i need an 'regular' XP to boot straight into the system account, just like a PE does.

Can anyone tell, what i have to do, to make this happen?

:cheers:

This is not exactly the answer you're seeking, but some ideas from which to start:
Log as System (video tutorial)
There they use the "at" command to become system.
A simpler alternative is to use QwertyLab's free RunAsSystem command.
Both ways you can become system, but neither is easily converted into something that will lead you to finish booting straight as system.

For some uses, you can try using:

Here is my tool RunasLSA sized 1.5 Kb. It runs cmd.exe under Local System Account. The tool runs only on XP.

Thanks for the tips, but switching to system account, isn't good enough.
I need to boot straight into it, without first booting into another account.

do you mean the "system" or Administrator? and do you need to have it be "automatic"? If not, could you enable the text mode login prompt (the one where it has the account name) and use that as the "first boot"?

For now i could use manual logon, no problem.

I mean system. I need to use the default hive.

That would be tricky (I think), since it's not really an account per se that you can access (least AFAIK, which I admit may not be too much)...i.e. is there an actual account name for it that you can enter?

The account name would be "System", however that can not be used at the login page.
