JSI Tip 9566. The Mini-Setup Wizard appears to hang after you start the computer for the first time after installing Windows XP?

The Mini-Setup Wizard appears to hang for a few minutes, between the Set Date and Time page and the Network Settings page.

This behavior occurs because the Mini-Setup Wizard is very busy adding the TCP/IP, DHCP, DNSCache, Netman, Lmhosts, and LanmanWorkstation services.

NOTE: The Windows XP Mini-Setup Wizard will NOT continue until the LanmanWorkstation service has been successfully added.
