Note
I created a transform with following properties
AGREETOLICENSE=Yes
EULA_AGREEMENT=1
SERIALNUM_USERVAL=XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX

I set the Feature Level to 999 for features I needed to install.

Install using following command line:
SetupX.exe NERO_SCOUT="FALSE" /qb! /NORESTART TRANSFORMS="AHD-Nero-8.1-R01-4224.mst"

v8.10.21 has a known pending reboot issue:
"A system reboot was requested by previous software installation (e.g. a Windows update).

This has apparantly been fixed in later versions.

To bypass the "Please Register Your Copy Of nero" Screen - you must rename the following 2 files AFTER they have been installed to the machine :

NOSProductRegistration.dll
NOSMyNeroRegistration.dll

They are located in the C:\Program Files\Nero\Nero8\OnlineServices Folder...

Please note that just renaming them in the FILE table of the transform will not bypass the Registration Screen...

Note
To install a single feature of the Nero 8 MSI with an MST, it would be easier to use the ADDLOCAL property. For instance, installing only the Nero Burning ROM feature, the commandline would be:

MSIEXEC /I Nero.msi TRANSFORMS=Nero.mst ADDLOCAL=NeroBurningRomBCAFF604 /qb

Don't know about other package programs, but in WPS it's easy to use this property inside the MSI/MST. Use the Set Property action in the MSI Script section, and define it there. This is useful when using Active Directory or any other deployment method that make the use of properties on the commandline impossible.

I created a custom Action in a Transform file (vbScript, embedded Code) to Install the Burnrights and rename the Registration files.

Section --> Execute Immediate; after Install Finalize

Code:
Dim strProgramF
Dim strPath
Dim Command
Dim wshshell
Dim objFSO
Dim strRegFile1
Dim strRegFile2

Set WshShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
strProgramF = WshShell.RegRead("HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ProgramFilesDir")
strPath = strProgramF & "\Nero\Nero8\Nero Toolkit\NeroBurnrights.exe"

'only for Errorhandling
'MsgBox strPath
'************* Set Burnrights *****************************
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
If objFSO.FileExists(strPath) Then
WshShell.Run Chr(34) & strPath & chr(34) & " /all /sec_class", 1, True
'wshshell.Popup "Datei " & strPath & " existiert."
Else
'wshshell.Popup "File " & strPath & " doesnt exist."
End If
'********************** Rename File To Register ****************
' locate File to Rename
strRegFile1 = strProgramF & "\Nero\Nero8\OnlineServices\NOSMyNeroRegistration.dll"
strRegFile2 = strProgramF & "\Nero\Nero8\OnlineServices\NOSProductRegistration.dll"

'for ErrorHandling
'msgbox strRegFile1 & strRegFile2

' Chek if File Exist and Rename File
If objFSO.FileExists(strRegFile1) Then
objFSO.MoveFile strRegFile1, strProgramF & "\Nero\Nero8\OnlineServices\_NOSMyNeroRegistration.dll"
Else
'wshshell.Popup "File " & strRegFile1 & " doesnt exist."
End If
If objFSO.FileExists(strRegFile2) Then
objFSO.MoveFile strRegFile2, strProgramF & "\Nero\Nero8\OnlineServices\_NOSProductRegistration.dll"
Else
'wshshell.Popup "File " & strRegFile2 & " doesnt exist."
End If

If your unattended setup of seems to prompt you endlessly with errors while registering Nero's dll's, you may have a problem with SideBySide Assemblies. Installing VisualC++2005 Redistributable prior to Nero should solve the issue. You will see EventID 59 and 32 from Source 'SideBySide' in System Eventlog in such a case. The setup using the GUI will work without problems.

The complete error message is:

"Unable to register xyz.dll. Error code -2147010895"
"This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem. Error=14001, FACILITY=7"

Experienced with Nero 8 Essentials OEM running under Windows XP Pro.
