We just got a new Deskpro EN today here at work and I went through the same NT setup process as you, but without any hitches. It still took forever and a day, and about 6 reboots for it to install NT, then SP3, SP4, this IE patch, that patch, reboot, reboot, reboot.

Compaq doesn't have any choice in the software install, it's the best cludge they could come up with for an automated install.

I feel your pain...
