A Cool Windows XP Trick: SHIFT F10


You may or may not know this little trick.  I just found this the other day and thought it was pretty cool and that I should share.   During a Windows XP installation you can hit Shift F10 and open up a command prompt window. 

This only works during the GUI part of the install, not the blue and white text screens.  You default to the C:\Windows\Inf directory so I’m assuming you can inject drivers during the install of the OS.  So the next time you are installing Windows XP from scratch give it a shot.
