Hi. I don't want to install these network components (marked with red dots in the pictures) during unattended installation:

Client for Microsoft Networks

File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks

QoS Packet Scheduler

Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)

What should I put in WINNT.SIF? Any additional lines needed to be added to the following?

[Networking]

InstallDefaultComponents="No"

[NetAdapters]

Adapter1=params.Adapter1

Adapter2=params.Adapter2

[params.Adapter1]

INFID="V1394\NIC1394"

[params.Adapter2]

INFID="PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_294C&SUBSYS_00018086

Hello? Hi?

Let me summarize...

During installation, we will get to a scene like this:

post-167089-1222080040_thumb.gif

I used to choosing Custom Settings. Then I will uncheck (not uninstall) all the boxes (below). Then click Next (for sure).

How should I configure the WINNT.SIF so that this will be automatically performed in an unattended installation?

[Networking]

InstallDefaultComponents="No"

[NetAdapters]

Adapter1=params.Adapter1

Adapter2=params.Adapter2

[params.Adapter1]

INFID="V1394\NIC1394"

[params.Adapter2]

INFID="PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_294C&SUBSYS_00018086

Case 2: What should I put in WINNT.SIF to uninstall (not uncheck) the QoS Packet?

Pls kindly help me......

Hi MillenX,,

This is what I have in my Winnt.sif file.

[Networking]
InstallDefaultComponents=No

[NetAdapters]
Adapter1=params.Adapter1
Adapter2=params.Adapter2

[params.Adapter1]
ConnectionName="The Internet"
InfID=*
NetCardAddress=0x0123456789AB

[params.Adapter2]
ConnectionName="Local NIC"
InfID=*

[NetProtocols]
MS_TCPIP=params.MS_TCPIP

[NetClients]

[NetServices]

[params.MS_TCPIP]
DNS=Yes
UseDomainNameDevolution=No
EnableLMHosts=Yes
AdapterSections=params.MS_TCPIP.Adapter1, params.MS_TCPIP.Adapter2

[params.MS_TCPIP.Adapter1]
SpecificTo=Adapter1
DHCP=Yes
WINS=No
NetBIOSOptions=2

[params.MS_TCPIP.Adapter2]
SpecificTo=Adapter2
DHCP=No
WINS=No
IPAddress=192.168.123.2
SubnetMask=255.255.255.0
NetBIOSOptions=2

This will disable all NetServices and NetClients ( on all adapters/NIC's), and only install the tcpip protocol. Adapter1 will get it's settings from a DHCP server, the other one gets a static ip address.

If you remove all sections "[params.MS_TCPIP....]" and remove the line "MS_TCPIP=params.MS_TCPIP" from the section "[NetProtocols]", you will also have no NetProtocols installed.

I hope this will help.

Thank you for replying!

But do you mean this will uncheck them, or totally uninstall them? I want to uncheck the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) together.

What is the way if I want all of them get installed but unchecked so that I will not have to manually uncheck them after the XP installation thru Control Panel?

Not possible with winnt.sif. You'll have to use a reg file for that.

ya you are absolutely right. I had made a reg. file and it worked well.

I have still got one question.

What have jjvs meant by disabling them? Are them unchecked, or uninstalled?

This will disable all NetServices and NetClients ( on all adapters/NIC's),

Thanks guys!!

Oh ya... Another question...

[Networking]
InstallDefaultComponents=No

[NetAdapters]
Adapter1=params.Adapter1
Adapter2=params.Adapter2

[params.Adapter1]
ConnectionName="The Internet"
InfID=*

[params.Adapter2]
ConnectionName="Local NIC"
InfID=*

[NetClients]

[NetServices]

I have removed [NetProtocol]. How will this affect or will uninstall the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)?

Thanks guys beats and jjvs for helping!!

Yeah, what I meant was, "these are uninstalled".

I include "[NetProtocols]" to set different settings for different NIC's. But I think if you don't include it will install TCPIP with default settings.

I am extremely grateful to your help jjvs.

One last question for this topic.

Am I able to install back these when required:

Client for Microsoft Networks

File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks

QoS Packet Scheduler

Thank you guys especially jjvs

To answer that original question, all you need to add is this:

[Networking]
InstallDefaultComponents="No"

[NetClients]
MS_MSClient=params.MS_MSClient

[NetServices]
MS_SERVER=params.MS_SERVER

[NetProtocols]
MS_TCPIP=params.MS_TCPIP

That's it. Nothing more.

When you tell it not to install the default components it won't install anything unless you say so.

My settings will install the ms client, the file and printer sharing and the tcp/ip component. Not the QoS scheduler.

And yes, you can install the QoS whenever you choose. It's just not installed during windows setup.

Actually, I don't think you need all the params-thingies either. But I use those :P

Oh yeah thank you so much. You had been so helpful fric.

So that means, mine looks like this:

[Networking]
InstallDefaultComponents=No

[NetAdapters]
Adapter1=params.Adapter1

[params.Adapter1]
INFID=*

[NetProtocols]
MS_TCPIP=params.MS_TCPIP

Actually I'm still hoping for a way to UNCHECK THEM only. But I'm told that it's impossible thru WINNT.SIF, but registry file. So far I've only created one for TCPIP, but haven't tested it yet.

Thx anyway. thank you X 1000

I remember that there's a Setup Manager for XP.

So I had used it and the outcome was like this:

[Networking]
InstallDefaultComponents=No

[NetAdapters]
Adapter1=params.Adapter1

[params.Adapter1]
INFID=*

[NetProtocols]
MS_TCPIP=params.MS_TCPIP

[params.MS_TCPIP]
DNS=Yes
UseDomainNameDevolution=No
EnableLMHosts=Yes
AdapterSections=params.MS_TCPIP.Adapter1

[params.MS_TCPIP.Adapter1]
SpecificTo=Adapter1
DHCP=Yes
WINS=No
NetBIOSOptions=0

Thanks anyway.
