I'm trying to perform an unattended upgrade from Windows NT 4.0 to Windows 2000, but I receive an Inf corrupt message. What's wrong?

A. During an unattended upgrade of NT 4.0 to Win2K, you might receive the message "Line \[line number\] of the Inf is corrupt or invalid. Setup cannot continue." One common cause of this problem is the inclusion of the following text in the unattended file:

Banner=""Windows 2000 Unattended Install Banner Message""

To resolve the problem, open the unattended file, and comment out these two lines using a semicolon (;) at the beginning of each line. Save the updated file, and try the unattended upgrade again.
