Note
1. Create a Temp directory on your local machine.

2. Run the Notes Standard Installer and save the temp files in the Temp directory.

3. When you are prompted to install Notes, close the dialog box. The files you will be working with are in the temp directory created in step 1.

4. Locate the plugin_customization.ini located in the deploy folder.

5. Add the following line to the plugin_customization.ini in <sourcedir>\deploy:

com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.community/SametimeServer=sametime.domain.com

where "sametime.domain.com" is the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the Sametime server.

6. Save the changes to the plugin_customization.ini in <sourcedir>\deploy.

7. Initiate the installation.

8. The solution to this issue was to use in the Property Table:

SELECTINSTALLFEATURES=SametimeUI
ADDLOCAL=ClientSingleLogon

9. Modify the install.xml in <sourcedir>\deploy with the following change:
<installfeature default="true" description="%Sametime.description" id="SametimeUI" name="%Sametime.name" required="true" show="true" version="8.0.0.20080214.1630"
Examlpe:
Original

</installfeature>
<installfeature default="true" description="%Sametime.description" id="SametimeUI" name="%Sametime.name" required="false" show="true" version="8.5.1.20090929-1223">
<requirements>
Updated so sametime 6.x will install with Lotus Notes

</installfeature>
<installfeature default="true" description="%Sametime.description" id="SametimeUI" name="%Sametime.name" required="true" show="true" version="8.5.1.20090929-1223">

Note
If you have the issue where the desktop shortcut reappears even when you've deleted it from the shortcut table, make sure that the properties in your transform PROGDIR and DATADIR were set correctly - we install to c:\lotus\notes
but by default the above 2 properties were something like C:\Program Files\IBM\Lotus\Notes

so we set PROGDIR to C:\Lotus\Notes
and DATADIR to c:\Lotus\Notes\Data

I use this for K1000 Managed Installs as well as K2000 deployments for multiuser installs with all defaults.  I zip up the contents of the extracted files upload them to the KBOX and that is it.

 msiexec.exe /i"Lotus Notes 8.5.3.msi" SETMULTIUSER=1 /qb
