Using GDisk to preformat disk

Recommended Posts

How do I use gdisk to preformat an unattended installation then install XP into the formatted disks?

Also How can I run a disk defrag on bootup of windows in a unattended install?

Can I partition and format my HD inside the Windows XP Setup?

Such as C:\ -8G

I would suggest using WinPE/BartPE and just running your partition & format commands before copying cabs to the hdd. You could then use diskpart & format to do what you want. I have gdisk, but haven't played with it much yet.

here are some gdisk links though:
