  4. Help - $oem$ Problem

    CRAP......! Now I know I have looked at this way too long.....! I can it see now and as often as I stared and looked it just didn't register or sink in.....! THANK you....! Magic1
  5. Help - $oem$ Problem

    Hope this picture was done right...! The misspelling was only in the "post" not the winnt.sif. It was supposed to be www.msn.com - I must have hit the "F" key (being so FFFFfrustrated...)! Magic1
  6. Extremely Frustrated.....! First off I'm an older retired guy but fairly new at some of this stuff. Most of the unattended goes correctly. The problem: For some reason nothing from the $OEM$, $ folder (Drivers,Install) gets copied to the hard drive. So of course nothing from the RunOnceEx.cmd gets installed after the reboot because the Directories/files are not there. The folders are exactly like the MSFN Unattended Guide. And, yes the RunOnceEx does install properly when tested with the folders in the right place. I have searched and found a few similar problems stated in the forum - but the ones that were answered would not solve my problem. I seem to have the folders in the proper place and order. All of the other folder and Files like the $$ folder, $Docs and the $Progs do get copied into the proper place. My timezone, Theme and several other things from the winnt.sif are all correct. I have looked at this until I can hardly stand it - and do not see the problem....! If I understand this correctly those folders in the $ folder should automatically get copied - at least if my winnt.sif is correct and if the folders are placed, labeled and/or spelled and refered to correctly. If the problem isn't in the winnt.sif - which I can't seem to see a problem with - then what else am I overlooking. Any help would be appreciated - I've searched for a week now - and don't know where to go from here....!

    A Newbee - Sorry guy's it's probably been covered before but I can't find an XPCTBOOT.BIN anywhere. I have extracted the boot image with ISOBUSTER named: Microsoft Corporation.img but XPCREATE won't use it? What am I doing wrong?? Is this a simple matter of just renaming it to XPCTBOOT.BIN Magic1
  8. To quote or not to quote

    This is confusing to me see below some "yes" answers are quoted some are not. Some of the =0's are quoted some are not? AutoPartition=0 MsDosInitiated="0" UnattendedInstall="Yes" AutomaticUpdates=yes [unattended] UnattendMode=FullUnattended OemSkipEula=Yes OemPreinstall=yes UnattendSwitch=yes DriverSigningPolicy=Ignore TargetPath=\WINDOWS oemPnPDriversPath=Drivers\000_Broadcom440_Lan;Drivers\001_Promise_RAID OemSkipEula=Yes TargetPath=\WINDOWS
  9. I'm just starting out learning about unattended CD installs. I'm not sure where in the winnt.sif the answers I type in (or cut & paste in) should have quotes included. Some from the setupmgr had them - others didn't. Sorry if this has been covered before. Thanks, magic
