Want to save some time when deploying Windows Vista?

Some people have complained that they don't want to wait while Windows Vista runs the hardware assessment process (WinSAT) to determine the computer's Windows Experience Index rating during the initial OS initialization.  Now there is a way that you can avoid this; see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/958011 for more information on the hotfix that is available for this and the new unattend.xml option that can be specified once this hotfix is installed (or injected offline) into your OS image.
