Wpeinit only runs whatever commands are in your unattend.xml file, it
doesn't kick off a Vista setup or any other commands unless you tell it to.
(well, it also initialises PnP devices and loads networking).
To start a Vista installation, you need to run "setup.exe" from the root of
the Vista installation tree, passing it your answer file as a parameter if
you're planning to do an unattended installation.
There's more info in the WAIK help file - see the topic "Methods for running
Hope it helps
