Install Office 2003 from Windows unattended media

When I try to install office 2003 during RunOnceEx from the Windows drive, it fails. It is asking for the Office 2003 media... This does not happen if the office source files are copied to the hard drive and installed from there.

Any idea on how to fix this?

TIA

Edit: This is the error I saw in the installation log:

That's how I created the MST file... 10 years ago. The guide assumes the installation will be copied over to the system drive (i.e. %systemdrive%\install). I've now replaced the use of OEM folders by installation from the OS media.

I've fixed this by creating a transforms that modifies the last entry in the Media table, the one with DiskId 200, LastSequence 5000 and no volume label. I set the label to OFFICE11 and now it works.

Just curious: did you modify the existing TRANSFORM.MST file (with Notepad, for e.g.) or create a new one? My experience with modifying an earlier created file has not been so good, even for a simple task as changing the product key.

Cheers
