I am trying to add applications to my post install process for Windows 7 that require no pending reboots to be present.
I am having random results. I am adding a reboot in a BAT file. When I do this, sometimes the machine won't reboot and ocess stiops due to a prompt to select a network (the network has been specified in the unattend.xml)
I can usually get it to reboot once, install a test app, but additional reboots in the chain do not occur. I have tried sleep.exe before and after, in case it is a timing issue, but it does not seem to do anything in Win 7 as a post install task
Can any of you shre some insights on how to run the postinstall, then a reboot, then add an application, then reboot again and add another application, then finally reboot to a domain logon screen (post install process completed)?

I found out from kace that this is not possible.
I have heard conflicting reports that its possible when deploying windows xp, but it does not work with windows 7.

The only work around is to have the last post install task add its self into the runonce regkey and copy any source files locally but this could be time consuming if you need mutilple reboots netween apps.

Hope this helps
