Recommended Posts

===== Post Nº1 =====

CAn someone paste the a basic example AutoUnattend.xml for windows 7 rtm.

So that I can just add this

<FolderLocations>

<ProfilesDirectory>e:Users</ProfilesDirectory>

<ProgramData>e:ProgramData</ProgramData>

</FolderLocations>

in the unattend.xml file and get on with things...

Edit: I should add , I don't want any other unattended features. The only change I want is the change in folder paths.

It worked! :thumbup

I just had to change

<cpi:offlineImage cpi:source="catalog://server/wim/pro x86/install_windows 7 professional.clg" xmlns:cpi="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:cpi" />

to

<cpi:offlineImage cpi:source="catalog://server/wim/pro x86/install_windows 7 ultimate.clg" xmlns:cpi="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:cpi" />

becuase I had the ultimate edition.

ALso in order to move program files I just applied a registry tweak after the installation. My documents acan simply be moved using the properties dialog. SO now I just have the plain old windows folder in my c drive :D:thumbup

I am using unattended answer file to move User folders to a different partition in XP. I would also want to do the same in Windows 7. It's great to see this thread.

Can I ask if this procedure would work?

(1) Copy the AutoUnattend.xml to the root of a USB flash drive.

(2) Boot from a standard Windows 7 DVD.

Is that all that is required? Is anything missing from this procedure?

Thanks.
