unattended windows xp installation problem

Recommended Posts

i made a windows xp unattended cd with my specified additional programs and its working soo fine .

but i had only one problem which is ...

he asks me in the first of installation about which partition do u want to install the windows .

so i don't want this warning to be appeared .

by the way i manipulate the winnt.sif autopartition=1 . but still ask me for wht partition .

another thing .. i had only one drive which is C

also i had a preinstalled windows xp on that drive

so is there any silent option to delete the c: partition and install a fresh one without asking me

thnx in advance

I wish MS was a bit more flexible regarding setting up disks, but unfortunally that's not possible. At least, not without using 3rd party tools. At work I use Altiris and Radia, and let them handle the partitioning part.
