fusan Posted April 17, 2008 Share Posted April 17, 2008 (edited) I have a problem that is driving me nuts...The Scenario:I need to install Windows XP from a DVD unattended.It is not a normal install since the Documents and Settings needs to be on dirve d:(This is done in the Winnt.sif with: ProfilesDir="D:\Documents and Settings\")So since I cant make NTFS partitions from Dos and dont have Windows Pe, I had touse Bart PE.I succeded in putting Windows XP and Bart PE on the same DVD, starting Bart up,wipe, partition and format the disk. So far so good.To install Windows from Bart I use this bat file with this line:x:\XPSP2\i386\Winnt32.exe /syspart:c: /tempdrive:c: unattend:x:\XPSP2\i386\Winnt.sifThe install starts nicely and after the "Copy Files" it exits and reboots the PC.This is were the problems starts... Instead of continuing the setup from the T39 phase, it starts from scratch were it wantsme to choose a partition to install Windows to. If I choose a to continue the install and choose c: to install to it stops just before "Copy Files" with: Setup was unable to verify drive c:(It seem like it cant find the file on the DVD.I have tried the /makelocaksource switch, copy winnt.sif and some other files and everythinggoes great, but its takes a much longer with this option cus it copies twice.If anyone have any clue on how I get through this proces sane Ill really appreciate it.Any help will be great.
