Prompted about Drive partitioning, why?


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to install windows unattended, but ...I'm prompted about the parititoning and installation location ...why? How can I get past this screen without having to decide how I want the drive partitioned? I only want one big C drive, one partition ... how can I do this here?

Here are the "Data" and "Unattended" sections of my winnt.sif:

[Data]

AutoPartition=1

MsDosInitiated="0"

UnattendedInstall="Yes"

[unattended]

UnattendMode=FullUnattended

OemSkipEula=Yes

OemPreinstall=No

TargetPath=\WINDOWS

Add/Change the following lines to your unattended setup:

[unattended]

UnattendMode=FullUnattended

UnattendSwitch=Yes

TargetPath="\Windows"

Repartition=Yes

WaitForReboot=No

OemSkipEula=Yes

OemPreinstall=Yes

Maelstorm, thanks a lot.

The funny thing is that I attempted to use the windows utility, and I told it that I wanted an unattended installation.... You know, that wizard that creates your unattend.txt file for you? ...Imagine my shock when I'm asked to say how the disk is partitioned, when I thought I had already covered that in the wizard.

EDIT:

This worked awesome, thanks!

I now see where I should have read this page more carefully. (It covers the switches that I didn't use.)

Thanks again!
