comment Quickly set up a Windows Server and automatically install and configure software
I clarified my original question. I mean less attention needed; I want to be doing something else while windows is installing to the point where I'm not checking it constantly to see if there are any prompts. Newer versions of windows require far less attention than older versions. The Web Platform Installer is a pretty lame attempt at making things easier. I was installing SQL Server with it yesterday - three reboots that I had to watch for while installing it and the requisite software, and one prompt for a password for the SA account.

comment Quickly set up a Windows Server and automatically install and configure software
I had tried this over a year ago and had odd problems using ESXi. Basically, I would boot a few times and then my image would no longer boot. VMWare support told me it was because I was using a SATA drive and not something more complicated, which I found bizarre. While I had some success and wanted to continue trying to get it working, my boss said to stop perusing the idea so I did.

A remote install of the OS isn't too important, but it would have saved me two trips to our datacenter yesterday. I'm mostly interested in doing all of this faster.

So networking issues may be affecting the ability to install updates that have already been fully downloaded? Great.

comment SQL Server 2008 Express, need to copy a table from one server to another automatically
I've used those tools, but I really just want this single table synced, no the entire database.
