Windows 7: Windows 7 Auto Post Install Help

Windows 7 Auto Post Install Help

I am trying to create a disc that will automatically install and activate Windows 7 Professional. Included in the installation disk will be several ninite installers that will install the latest versions of programs needed for my department. After windows 7 installs and activates, when the user logs onto the computer he/she needs to be prompted with options to install either
  1. Essential List of Programs
  2. Suggested List of Programs
  3. Complete List of Programs
Choosing any of the three options will run Ninite Installer associated with the option. For now the prompt will be implemented as a simple VBScript. I've managed to get the unattended activation and installation step working, but I'm stuck on the prompting step. Does anyone know any way to configure the installation CD to run a script as soon as the user logs onto the computer? In case you're wondering, I'm using VLite to help create the installation CD. Any advice will be helpful. Thanks!

We have iso images with different pre-installed software options. Not sure about the scripting, but it sounds interesting.
