You can specify the unattended winnt.sif via commandline parameters passed to winnt32.exe.

ALL is revealed in the docs :)

In keeping with the theory of this...I have made a commandline batch file for pe...

wpeosi.bat

This is not completely done because I dont execute 98 setup anywhere...I will add some string to the batch file for 98 later...and I need to add in the custom routine.

Thanks EvilVoice..

At the moment were still putting .net into PE - I got a PM from someone who said they have done it.. If this works out i can put a tutorial up to put the program into pe with .net... :)

Also, has anyone figured out how to launch windows 98 setup from windows PE??

Thanks alot Guys & Gurls,

Chris.

Yes, but winnt32.exe copies it to the target path before installation :rolleyes: ($~WINNT.BT$ or whatever it's called...)

One more question, which version of the OPK tools are you using to build WinPE? I'm using 1.2, or the one that comes with Server 2003.
